Less Volume, More Elegance
A key role in the success of a perfect marriage is the choice of wedding dress. One of the most obvious trends for wedding dresses in 2024 is the volume reduction. Many of the creations that will be on trend are characterised by cleaner, tighter lines with a focus on enhancing the silhouette of the bride. Goodbye to excessive layers of tulle and wide skirts, next year promises to be the year of simplicity and elegance.
Brands such as Yolancris, Jesús Peiró, Isabel Sanchis and Sophie et Voilá are promoting this trend with dresses from the straighter lines, petticoat cuts, sheath dresses, empire dresses and more sober lines. The aim is to bring out the bride's natural beauty, putting her figure in the foreground.
Dresses with Diamonds: A Bright Continuation

Designers are making dresses with shiny fabrics or completely covered with sparkling stones, from the largest to the smallest. Luxury and opulence are sure to take centre stage. These wedding dresses become true jewels, putting the bride at the centre of attention and creating a magnet effectno one can take their eyes off her. Shimmering gowns feature glittering details on bodices, skirts, veils, sleeves, capes and even the train. This trend is perfect for brides getting married in the evening or in sumptuous locations such as historical residences or villas with a sea view.

Short wedding dresses are nothing new in the bridal world, but in the coming year they will play an even more central role. Many fashion houses are proposing short dresses, some just above the knee and others true mini-dresses. This year's special feature is the train at the back, which can be attached and detached as required, creating a double look that suits different stages of the wedding. From Yolancris, with its bold mini-dresses, to Jesús Peiró who adds tulle details to skirts, to The Atelier, Elie Saab, Demetrios, Nicole Couture and Woná Concept, all are proposing short wedding dresses with a modern, sensual and lively cut. These 'party dresses' are ideal for young, determined brides who want to feel like queens on their day without sacrificing comfort.
Dual-Dress: Effortless Changing of Dresses
And speaking of comfort, the trend that won't go away is the dual-dress. Many designers are creating clothes with detachable skirts, allowing the bride to make a unique dress change without necessarily having to buy two different models. Generally, the removable tail is made of tulle, but there is no shortage of fully feathered models or very wide ones covered with ruffles.
