Make a wish list now. The Knot’s fashion team hit the ground running to get the scoop on the latest designs coming to a bridal salon near you during Bridal Fashion Week. From frothy ruffles to romantic sleeves and amusing party gowns, the 2022 wedding dress trends have plenty of ultra-chic inspiration. These are the wedding dress trends to know in 2022 if you’re planning a wedding next year or are just fantasizing about it. Read on for the lowdown on what’s hot—and how to wear it.

Short Dresses

These outfits have a low hemline but a lot of personalities. This 2022 wedding dress style is for you if you’re eloping, planning a relaxed ceremony, or just want a good reason to show off a fantastic pair of shoes. Do you want to wear a long gown to your wedding? A short dress is also ideal for other wedding-related activities such as the reception, rehearsal dinner, and bridal shower.


The return of larger weddings is the ideal opportunity to wear a maximalist gown, and it doesn’t get much more extravagant than this frilly, unashamedly excessive embellishment. A voluminous skirt of cascading ruffles is great for the bride wishing to make a significant fashion statement, while a ruffled skirt gives breezy dimension to a sleek silhouette. Consider a dress with subtle ruffles on the bodice or sleeves if you like this frothy style but don’t want a garment with a lot of volumes.

Floral Pattern Dress

We’ll skip the “Florals for spring? Groundbreaking” part and get straight to the point: bold-blooming gowns will be everywhere in 2022. While floral themes and bridal gowns are a timeless combination, vivid prints and flamboyant needlework give this classic look a new lease on life. Keep your accessories minimal and allow your gown do the talking to get this fashion-forward style in real life.

Puff Sleeve Dress

Although puff sleeves conjure up images of out-of-style wedding gowns from the 1980s, these more subdued versions are all about discreet romance. This surprising adaptable element can be adapted for any form, from a snug slip dress to a large ball gown, allowing you to wear regal statement sleeves regardless of your wedding style.


What, no gown? It’s no problem. These sleek dress options are easy to wear, figure-flattering, and extremely trendy. Bonus: It’s nearly difficult to wear one of these tailored ensembles without feeling like a badass. Crop tops, one-shoulder necklines, and shorts gave the classic wedding pantsuit and jumpsuit a joyful and festive mood for the 2022 bridal trends.
