The Top 12 Wedding Dress Trends for Spring 2025

Blame “The Gilded Age” or Emma Stone‘s late-19th-century-London-meets-swinging-’60s costumes in “Poor Things“: Victorian trademarks — regal basque waistlines, defined corsetry, rarified lace and sumptuous pearls — thread through the top bridal trends for Spring 2025.

Perhaps designers are just responding to the demand. According to the Pinterest 2024 Wedding Trend Report, interest in “Victorian wedding dress vintage” and “Victorian gothic wedding” spiked 170%, while “vintage inspired wedding dresses” in general surged 240%.

In their latest collections, revealed during Bridal Fashion Week in April, designers reference other (slightly more recent) eras as well, from updated takes on Roaring Twenties waistlines, to elevated renditions of exuberant ’80s skirts, to nostalgic ’90s club-kid DIY glitz. 

Grab a glass of champagne and check out the top 12 bridal trends for Spring 2025 below.

Basque in the Moment

A V-shaped, contoured waistline that hit peak popularity during the Victorian Era traces its origins to traditional Basque country dress — and it reigns supreme in the upcoming bridal collections. Imam Nardos references the period directly, but reimagines the silhouette through gleaming silk mikado and pannier-reminiscent tulle side panels for Spring 2025. Lihi Hod, meanwhile, nods to Grace Kelly’s 1956 wedding dress with a full lace ballgown, and Cinq‘s Macye Wysner throws in Hitchcockian suspense and Shakespearean drama with architecturally-lined bodices flowing into ethereal skirting.

Waist Dropped Low

Continuing its evolution from the 1920s, the drop waist speaks to a range of attitudes and aesthetics for wedding event dressing. Reem Acra evokes palatial gardens through bejeweled bodices with scalloped and jagged borders cascading into majestic layers of tulle. Lein‘s languid, sheer tank flowing into an ultra-low-slung pleated maxi-skirt gown conjures images of an effortlessly-cool newlywed casually leaning against the wall, sipping on some champers (as founder Meredith Stoecklein envisioned at the preview).

Cutting-Edge Draping

Designers infused architectural, almost futuristic elements into romantic ornamentation this season: Dana Harel‘s Greek and Roman art-inspired strapless ballgown features more defined and sculpted draping; Danielle Frankel‘s “accidental Impressionism” translates to innovative draped silk jersey; and Andrew Kwon‘s (Don’t miss our chat with him on The Fashionista Network!) midriff-baring ruched goddess gown involves over 60 hours of ultra-precise handiwork.

Ultra-Structured Corsetry

For Spring 2025, corsetry tilts toward rigid Victorian hourglass styles, contouring at the waist and ending toward the hip with contemporary twists. Kyha Studios offers versatility (and an opportunity to rewear) with a glass bead-encrusted, satin-lined corset to coordinate with a bikini top and skirt. Enaura‘s crop top over an exposed-boning corset creates the look of a Swiss waist flaring into pannier-esque skirting. Depicting a French Romanticism theme, Amsale constructs a waspie-style waistline with hand-embroidered silk rose vines blooming into a tulle skirt.

Not-So-Victorian Lace

Lace, Victorian or not, dominated the Spring 2025 bridal collections. Viktor & Rolf Mariage introduced lace (and dazzling beading) for the first time, and Colombia-based Francesca Miranda swathes a lace mini in layers of gossamer Japanese organza. Tel Aviv’s Galia Lahav pays homage to Pre-Raphaelite heroines with a dreamy French lace, off-the-shoulder and puff-sleeve gown. For the bold and playful, Jaclyn Whyte pairs a Guipure lace romper with a grand court train robe. 

Precious Pearls

Modern pearl adornments are trending just as hard for weddings as they are on fashion runways. Making her bridal debut, New York City-based Alejandra Alonso Rojas interprets memories of her grandmother’s circa-1950s Balenciaga evening gown through a freshwater pearl-dotted slip. Esé Azénabor elicited gasps at her runway show when a spectacular pearl and crystal-trimmed ball gown skirt instantly transformed into a party-ready jumpsuit.

Bows, Bows, Bows

Ribbons and bows — in a range of sizes, colors, textures and placement — bring charm and cheekiness to the season, without feeling twee. Tanner Fletcher decorates pantsuits with a smattering of ribbons, which also delicately adorn silky vintage-style dresses, for the brand’s first-ever bridal collection. For Scorcesa‘s inaugural capsule collaboration with Louvienne, designer Charles Dieujuste celebrates traditional Haitian weddings with an oversize detachable bow, in black or white, which doubles as a train. La Chenille Bridal Bikini‘s nuptials-themed swimwear features exaggerated flourishes on a one-piece and a sequined caftan cover-up.

Club-Ready Metallics

A slew of sparkling metallic embellishments and materials, nodding to past eras, call for partying all night (and straight into the goodbye brunch). Idan Cohen outfits the non-traditional bride in a glittery black-and-gold winged mini straight out of Studio 54. For Honor, Giovanna Randall revisits teenage impressions of ’90s N.Y.C. club culture with an eclectic mix of iridescent neon and candy-pink overlays, disco-ball silver and flouncy tulle. Through a mirrored silver paillette-covered and pearl-fringed party dress, Alexandra O’Neill’s Markarian recalls Anita Louise’s turn as a glimmering Titania in the 1935 film “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” (also bringing the fashion fever dream of a masquerade party in “Saltburn” to mind). 

Updated Bubble Skirts

The return of the bubble skirt advances into the new season through evolving shapes and textures. Stephanie White’s Odylyne the Ceremony takes a fantastical journey to Wonderland via an empire-waist gown with billowing high-low tulle layers, plus a sculpted raw silk mini, topped with a mutton-sleeve lace bolero. Monique Lhuillier incorporates the ’80s-favored silhouette into Victorian-influenced gowns and mini-dresses in both her main collection and little sister line, Bliss.

Nature-Referential Flow and Flounce

Along with the ubiquitous floral motifs, additional lush nature themes come through in flowing streams of tulle and chiffon. Nordeen‘s Brenna Simmons illustrates the beauty of wind and water through an interchangeable and detachable silk chiffon cape-train with sweeping split sleeves. For her self-named line, Mariela Torres Soucy translates the shape and movement of flower petals through a floaty deep-plunge dress in luxuriant earth tones.

Interwoven Checks

Geometric square shapes in varying fabrications and themes jump out of the latest bridal collections in inventive and meaningful ways, from traditional latticework to beach-y crochet to new takes on 19th-century crinoline cage skirts. Paying homage to her family and culture, Nadia Manjarrez showcases Mexican loom-weaving techniques on a drop-waist corset and tulle-skirted ballgown. Milla Nova honors traditional Ukrainian weddings, in the fall after the harvest, through a handwoven floral crop top.

The Must-Have Mini

At this point, a mini wedding dress is a staple within any full bridal collection — for courthouse ceremonies, after parties, alternative looks and definitely post-nuptial occasions. Viktor & Rolf Mariage winks back at a statement gown from its Fall 2005 ready-to-wear collection with a bow-topped shift reading “I Love You”. Elie Saab references Monet with an off-the-shoulder, long-sleeved lace mini, while Katie Yeung gives a peek of décolletage with a shimmering shrug atop a corseted and draped mini for Hera Couture.
