2024 Bridal Trends
19 / 01 / 24
The 2024 wedding season will soon be upon us, and for all you 2024 brides, the dress may be the one of the next big things on your list of to-do’s! We wanted to catch up with some of our partners and talk about all things bridal trends.
We asked Bridal Indulgence:
What do you see as the biggest trends for 2024?
Minimalist elegance: clean lines, simple silhouettes, and understated details have been popular in wedding dresses. Minimalist designs often feature sleek fabrics, such as satin or crepe, with minimal embellishments.
Statement sleeves: dramatic sleeves have been a prominent trend, with options like fitted sleeves, puff sleeves, or bell sleeves. These statement sleeves can add a touch of romance or vintage charm to a wedding dress.
Bows: who doesn’t love a bow? From a small bow that works as a finishing touch to a big dramatic bow that is the statement of your dress; they’re feminine and fun and we’re loving them!
Non-traditional colours: while ivory remains a classic choice, some brides want something a little more non-traditional like blush, champagne, or even bold hues like black or blue. These unconventional colours can add a unique touch to the wedding dress.
Detachable elements: wedding dresses with detachable elements, such as removable skirts, sleeves, capes, or overskirts, continue to be a popular choice. These versatile designs allow brides to have different looks throughout their wedding day, without spending out on multiple dresses.
What is your favourite look?
That’s really hard to narrow down just one look! But we’re currently loving how brides are switching up their look throughout the day with same dress with detachable sleeves, straps, and overskirts.
We asked The Farnham Boutique:
Give us a little insight into the designers you are stocking this year?
We have 4 designers at The Farnham Boutique, and each brings something different to the party. Made With Love brings contemporary, sophisticated elegance. Madi Lane brings romance. Evie Young boasts drama and Dama Couture has a bohemian coolness that we are so excited to introduce in 2024!
Veils – yes or no?!
YES! Veils add something quite spectacular to your photos (especially when the wind blows) and of course to your dress. It’s all about picking the right one. We love a long plain veil for that dramatic look!
What is your absolute all-time favourite look?
It’s so hard to choose as it changes all the time. At the moment we love the plain, fitted dress but it all depends on who wears which dress. Every bride is so unique, and the dress has to reflect that.
We asked Sophie Rose Bridal:
What do you think the biggest trends for this year will be?
It’s all about the sleeves! Long sleeves, puff sleeves, detachable sleeves, they’re all back and I’m VERY happy about it. I’m not a big believer in trends when it comes to wedding dresses, as I think it’s about simply wearing an outfit that makes you feel truly you and your most beautiful self, but I find sleeves often help women feel so much more comfortable and confident, so I’m all for it.
How would describe your collection for the upcoming year?
I’ve just released the Studio Collection, which is a collection of dresses that have an edge of simplicity but still with a romantic, relaxed feeling. I think women are realising more and more that there aren’t any ‘shoulds’ when it comes to bridalwear and wearing what makes you feel most comfortable is what’s important. More intimate weddings are also becoming more popular, and I think the Studio Collection suits that really well.
Any tips for brides looking for their dream dress?
Take time to research where you’re going to book an appointment to try on dresses. If somewhere resonates with you and they have the style that excites you, then they’re the places to go. I’d also suggest going with only a couple of people maximum. Choosing your dress can only really be your decision and having lots of voices as part of that decision can be very overwhelming and confusing! There will be plenty of fitting appointments that your special people can be a part of if you wish, so you can still have them as part of your dress experience.
