In the 2000-2010s (up until ~2013?) we had huge satin ball gowns with pickups, ruching and massive beading. Then for the past decade it has been lots of lace mermaids giving way to recent boho sheath chiffony styles. The trend has seen an upsurge in cap sleeves and especially straps. Strapless sweetheart finally looks like it’s dying out…not quite there yet, but definitely a lot more choices in necklines now than before.
What trends have you noticed recently? What do you predict will be the next big dress trend that will be around for at least a decade?

I think sleeves are coming back in a major way. Lace seems more popular than satin, now, too. I’d put money on boho lasting for a while. I think more flowy a-line will be popular, too.

Sleeves are in and the corset/transparent/lingerie look is out.

Illusion necklines will be in for the next ten years I think

I do hope dresses with sleeves, and fabrics with more “substance” will become more available.

I think illusion necklines will stick around for another couple of years, but are on their way out.
I agree that sleeves are in, v-necks are in, and flowy a-line dresses will be sticking around for awhile.
As far as what’s next, I have no clue. Maybe we’ll see the poofy sleeves coming back! They’re due for another resurgance.

Whenever I see strapless, satin, ruching, corset backs now I think 2000-2010. I’m so thankful that sleeves and straps are in and I hope that doesn’t change. I think chiffon and easy to wear silhouettes will stick around for a while, wouldn’t be sad to see the end of mermaids.

Color, more than “ivory” and “blush”. Actual color. From airy fairy-like pastel blues, pinks, aquas to fiery reds, blacks. Individuality is in and what best way to show uniqueness than not to have a white dress like everyone.

Sleeves. Gosh I love sleeves! So glad I had sleeves on my gown 😀😀

Flowy, tulle a-line. Lace sheaths. Sleeves / cap sleeves / spaghetti straps (not strapless).

Dresses with options for different looks – add a topper or an overskirt, separates, etc. Stuff that lets you really create a custom look, or more than one look to go from ceremony to reception.

Good question! I think with more people paying for their own wedding and more weddings being more casual, we will see more stores bought dresses from places like Asos. I think over the next say years, it will become less common to have a custom made $3000-$10,000 dress and more people will be in the $500 – $1500 range. This will also include separates so people can customise their look or get two different sizes if they are bigger on top or bottom.

I think the transparent lingerie look. Especially the sheer top floating cups with deep v. I just can’t get into this look even if I had supermodel body I wouldn’t where this.

I think simpler looks are here to stay for a while… a lot less sequins and beads and adornments in general, a lot more sleek materials, and lighter dresses in general. The days of 50lb wedding dresses that you need a team of bridesmaids to hold up while you pee are long over. Thank fuck.

I married in 2017 and thought that the cape was going to be a popular thing replacing the veil as it tends to have an underlying signification that was rather archaic to me. I didn’t see many brides wearing a cape though.
