Team Lovely is always on the hunt for the freshest in bridal fashion for our brides. Every April and October, our Lovely Bride buyers attend New York Bridal Fashion Week, where designers unveil their latest wedding dress collections. Each season we are in awe of the creativity of the designers, and this Spring 2025 NYBFW was no exception. We live for seeing our designers’ new collections and even discovering new wedding dress designers to stock in our Lovely Bride shops.

There is some serious magic coming to Lovely stores soon! We are so excited that we get to share these works of art with our brides on such an important day. While we can’t share everything we saw just yet, read on for a recap of some of our favorite trends seen at Bridal Fashion Week and a special sneak peek of what’s to come for 2025.

Bridal Scarves

In lieu of jewelry, we are loving the delicate and elegant drape of a scarf around the front of the neck for a chic bridal accessory choice. With light and airy fabrications such as chiffon, tulle, georgette, or silk organza, these dreamy wraps make a sophisticated statement. We spotted this trend across several of our designers’ latest collections, from Alexandra Grecco, Katherine Tash, OUMA, and Renhue.

Bold Bridal Bows

Bows are huge right now, and we think the possibilities to ‘tie’ them into your wedding look and design are endless. Take this trend up a notch by incorporating it on a bigger, grander scale! Whimsical yet chic, these romantic ribbons make a major statement. We spotted bold bridal bows at Louvienne and Alyssa Kristin.

Corsetry is not new to bridal – however, we are seeing some major inspiration from the centuries-old techniques in the latest collections from our designers. With a corset bodice, not only do you get supportive construction, you also get a bold look for your big day, whether it be sexy, romantic, or regal. Shaped cups, exposed boning, and sheer bodices were spotted in the newest from Louvienne, Dany Tabet, and Rue De Seine.

Drop Waists

Mic drop – the drop waist is the silhouette of the season. A nod to vintage, the bodice on drop waist gowns are fitted past or below the natural waistline to emphasize an elongated torso. These dramatically lowered waistlines were most often paired with exposed boning, intricate corsetry, or printed fabrics to balance modern and vintage vibes.

Tulle Texture

Tulle is the perfect fabrication for the feminine bride, and this season we saw a textural take on the look with dramatic draping, pressed pleats, and ruffly tiers. Our designers Vagabond and OUMA cleverly used the netted fabric to create both softness and structure in their tulle looks.

Asymmetrical Straps

On or off? We’re not talking the marriage – just your wedding dress straps! We spotted asymmetrical straps and shoulder detailing this season that create an effortless vibe and add a unique touch to necklines. The combination of a strap on the shoulder and another falling off the shoulder feels hip but not overly trendy.

Sultry Second Looks

Wearing multiple looks on the big day has become more common for brides, and designers are taking note this season. We saw playful pieces that run the gamut from sparkles to feathers. These make for the perfect sexy second look for the reception or after-party.
