In the year In 2022 it felt like “wedding season” was every day of the year, as years of bans and canceled events had us all making up for lost time. However, this pause has given many people time to think about how they want to celebrate, which traditions they will embrace and which they will completely ignore. When it comes to wedding dresses, there are now many more options for brides looking for something with a fashionable edge.
Bridal has become big business for the likes of Net-A-Porter, Matches Fashion and Moda Operandi, as more contemporary designers enter this traditional market. Here in British VogueWe’ve covered everything from Halloween inspiration to White House weddings. When it came to the fashion, there were timeless, traditional wedding dresses, but also more avant-garde looks that completely fit the rulebook. Whether you’re getting married in white feathers or a sheer, fluffy dress, the most important thing is that your outfit reflects your own personal style on the day, and makes you feel confident.
As the year draws to a close, take a look back at the most stunning weddings of 2022 to see how brides added a touch of fashion to their weddings this year. Think Jackie Kennedy coats, pearl chokers, archival corsets and gorgeous tulle gowns.
Fashion PR Daisy Hope got married in London in November and was transformed into a beautiful custom coat by one of her clients, Shrimp, in the evening. Founder Hannah Weiland made her a snow-white swing coat inspired by a photograph of Jackie Kennedy. This is an often overlooked part of the bridal wardrobe – but why not invest in a stunning formal coat that you can wear again and again?
Pearls are a common choice for bridal jewelry, and we love how Danielle Cooperman went bold with the accessories with a three-strand pearl necklace. Adds a real sense of nostalgia, retro charm.
