We love keeping an eye out on what is happening in the wedding dress world. Instagram and Pinterest has made it easy to keep up with international wedding dress trends. South Africans tend to adopt a trend a bit later than the rest of the world but with our incredible local designers creating wedding dresses relevant to current international trends it is easy to be right on trend with your wedding dress. Our favourite wedding dress trends for 2022 are:


The Modern Minimalist Wedding Dress

We are seeing well-structured modern minimalist wedding dresses all over the show with top international designers such as Chosen By Kyha and Vera Wang wowing us with plain wedding dresses in interesting designs. What we love about a minimalist wedding dress is that the dress puts the full focus on the bride. It is striking in its simplicity. A plain wedding dress is timeless and elegant, and by choosing such a dress for your wedding day you will be sure to still love your wedding dress when you look back at your photos for years to come. We have a variety of modern minimalist wedding dresses from Wishbone & Ivory to try on during your wedding dress fitting.

Halter Neck Wedding Dresses

This is one of our favourite trends for the year as this silhouette is so flattering on all figures. It provides fabulous support for fuller busts and cinches the waist. We have two gorgeous halter neck wedding dresses available in store by Wishbone & Ivory as well as Zanne Couture for you to try on and see for yourself! We love the below inspo from Vera Wang’s newest wedding dress collection!

Wedding Dresses with bows

We are very excited about this trend as we love a good bow! We are seeing over large bows on shoulders and backs, and think that it is the ultimate statement of sophistication. We have separate bows in various sizes that can be added to a wedding dress. Below is one of our gorgeous Wishbone & Ivory Real Brides Mia for whom we made a custom duchess satin bow for the back of her wedding dress.
