Here comes the bride. But, first, here comes the…
2022 Bridal Trends with Boda Bridal!

1. SATIN GOWNS
It’s simple and timeless with a twist.
2. 3D FLORALS
This look is still popular, and it’s easy to see why. The pretty petals add the perfect touch of romance and femininity!
3. NECKLINE DESIGN
The square neckline is another look that’s holding strong in the new year. The clean lines seamlessly keep the focus on the bride’s beautiful face while also accentuating her neck. No wonder it’s a win!
We're also seeing the neckline climb. Higher necklines are full of sophistication and taking gowns to new heights this year!
4. BALLGOWN BRILLIANCE
Ballgowns are the princess-inspired stuff little girls’ dreams are made of!
5. NOW THAT'S THE PUFF!
Brides can’t get enough of the puff! Voluminous sleeves made their appearance last year but remain big (and we mean BIG!) in 2022! Following suit, you’ll also find bows are going super-sized, adding larger-than-life interest to gowns!
6. BALLET BEAUTY & PASTELS
You don’t have to master a leap to bring on ballerina styling. We’re seeing lots of blush pink, tulle, tutus, and leotard-like bodices hitting the wedding runway.
In addition to blush, plan on seeing other softer shades this year, with pastels very much in play.
7. SECOND LOOKS
And you thought it was all about the wedding dress. The second act isn't about to be upstaged. Whether the bride opts for a second gown or a jumpsuit, a wardrobe change (or two!) adds style and excitement to the day. (Think: Paris Hilton and her famous collection for bridal wear for her recent wedding!)
8. ‘90s DESIGN
No, we aren’t’ seeing flannel wedding wear, but the ‘90s minimalist silhouette, cutouts, and draped sleeves are back in a brilliant way!
9. SHORT HEMLINES
Some brides are taking a shorter trip down the aisle… with a shorter hemline, that is. Others save this fun fashion move for the after party dress. Either way, you’ll find that while these looks are short in length, they certainly aren’t short on style.
This is for the bride who wants to go all out. We’re talking intricate beading, 3D applique, and other involved applications.
11. STATEMENT VEILS (and hats!)
Bold veils add the ideal finishing touch to today’s bridal looks!
12. LOTS OF LACE
The ultra-delicate look of lace is stealing the show in 2022.
We hope you enjoyed today's trend talk. Which look is your favorite? With so many amazing choices, we know what a tough question that is. If you didn't happen to see your perfect gown, don't fret.
