The Hottest Trends From New York Bridal Fashion Week

From dramatic Bridgerton-esque ruffles to chic, minimalist looks, the Spring 2022 NYBFW collections did not disappoint. 

New York Bridal Fashion Week is finally here and we're virtually thrilled! While we miss zipping around the city and ogling stunning gowns in person, we appreciate how bridal designers made it possible to view their new collections from the comfort and safety of our homes. Our fashion editors streamed gorgeous runway shows and viewed beautiful online presentations to bring you a sneak peek of our favorite bridal trends for 2022. Scroll on for some exciting bridal newness! 

Dramatic Ruffles

Call it a coincidence, but we choose to believe that the resurgence of Regency-era designs means that bridal designers are as obsessed with Netflix series Bridgerton  as we are. Bold ruffles add texture and dimension to any silhouette, and are sure to turn heads. Channel the Duchess of Hastings on your wedding day with one of these 1800s-inspired gowns.
