  • I attended Galia Lahav's press preview for its spring 2023 lines.
  • Sheer fabrics, cutouts, off-the-shoulder sleeves, and sparkly, floral detailing are all trending.
  • The brand's lead designer said he was influenced by world events for the collections.

I got a glimpse of the future of 2023 wedding trends last week.

Because I write about weddings for Insider, I was invited to Galia Lahav's preview of its spring 2023 collections and was able to get a sneak peek at what will be trending in bridal fashion in the coming year.

This Celebrity-Approved Skincare Brand Is Having Its Biggest Sale Ever

  This Celebrity-Approved Skincare Brand Is Having Its Biggest Sale Ever Here's what to snag while it's 25 percent off.If you've ever wondered how celebrities like Demi Lovato, Sofia Vergara, Lili Reinhart, Camila Mendes, and Madelaine Petsch maintain their remarkably smooth skin, I have two words for you: Renée Rouleau. The celebrity aesthetician has a way with faces that's translated to her eponymous skincare line, and to celebrate the brand's 25 years in business, it's holding a 25 percent-off sale — the biggest in its entire history.

The event spotlighted two collections: Rise, the brand's couture line for 2023, and Shine, its Gala collection. All of the gowns from both collections are now available to view on the Galia Lahav website.

Sheer fabrics and three-dimensional floral appliques were popular in the Gala line, as were off-the-shoulder sleeves.

Sharon Sever, Galia Lahav's lead designer, told Insider more brides than ever are asking for off-the-shoulder sleeves. He thinks the new interest in them is a result of virtual communication in the pandemic, as video chats only showed the upper portions of our bodies.

Likewise, he told Insider he was inspired to include textured, floral elements in the gowns after thinking about the time people spent in nature when they couldn't be indoors together.

  How to Choose the Best Bridal Perfume, According to 3 Fragrance Experts From zeroing in on the right scent profile to test-driving the fragrance ahead of the big day, experts reveal their guiding philosophies for brides-to-be.“Scent has the power to transport us and it is closely tied to our emotions,” says Joan Tanis, a training director at Maison Francis Kurkdjian. “For such a happy and meaningful day, it’s important to have a scent that connects to these emotions, a scent that afterward will take you back to that happy day.

Many of the Gala gowns also had dramatic slits and corset bodices on gowns with soft, tulle skirts, adding a sexy edge to the ethereal looks.

Both the Rise and Shine collections featured many embellished gowns as well, indicating sparkly dresses are only going to get more popular in the coming year.

Some gowns, like the Quinn (photographed on the left above), were completely covered in textured sparkles that had a disco-ball effect, while other dresses, like the Euphoria (pictured on the right), had small glittering details mixed in with florals.

Sparkles also popped up in many of the veils modeled during the preview, with Galia Lahav pairing them with sparkly gowns. The looks seemed to show a more-is-more approach to sparkles for the next year.

The Quinn also had a removable train, which has become more popular in recent years in wedding dresses. Galia Lahav's latest collections indicate the design feature is here to stay.

Sever also told Insider he designed many of the new gowns with cutouts.

Sever said dramatic cutouts felt natural in his designs because of his feeling that the world has been "torn" in recent years due to people having to distance themselves from each other physically.

Overall, it seems that bridal fashion is trending toward sexy, ethereal looks with nods to disco.
