Top Trends from NYBFW to Look Out for from Maggie Sottero Designs
Trend No. 1: Colorful Wedding Dresses
We’ve seen it before — brides who dare to walk down the aisle in a hue that is neither ivory, cream, nor white. In recent years, blush and pinks have been popular. Buttt in 2023 we saw the emergence of black and red, both of which Maggie Sottero Designs was bold enough to use in their designs. Take, for example, Aspen and Zander Lane. Now they bring us more black and a color we can only describe as Cinderella blue.

Trend No. 2: Bold Floral Prints
We’ve seen a steady rise in the popularity of saying “I do” in patterned dresses for the past few years. But this year the ante has been upped with so many designers embracing bold prints and we can’t get enough of it. Especially these new looks from Maggie Sottero Designs. P.S. If you also can’t get enough of it either, we’ve got an entire two-page spread dedicated to this in the upcoming issue of Celebrate Weddings Magazine dropping in 21 days.

Trend No. 4: Bows
Oversized bows may just be yesterday because notice how this trend capitalizes on the unique shape and form of a woman’s body, not to become the statement, but rather make a statement. Either way, we are all about the use of bows!

Trend No. 9: High Neck Gowns
We’ve seen high necklines before, but what makes these unique is that they’re paired with sleeveless dress. It takes a modern spin on a traditional look.
