As editors at Brides, we have the honor and privilege of reviewing hundreds of wedding photos, featuring some of the most beautiful brides around the world. These are pictures that have the ability to share a unique love story and provide inspiration for those on their own journey down the aisle. However, aside from images of gorgeous décor and statement-making details, one element that truly catches our attention is the extraordinary wedding day fashions worn by each bride. Between modern, sumptuous ball gowns and non-traditional silhouettes, the brides we feature are not afraid to take risks and embrace individual aesthetics on their big day.
Though everyone we highlight holds a special place in our hearts, there are a few who truly stand out in terms of the looks they’ve chosen to wear; specifically, bridalwear pieces that are not only timeless but memorable and of the moment. So, as we look back at a year of wonderful bridal attire, we couldn’t help but highlight some of our favorite real wedding dresses of 2022. From feathered minis to sleek slip ensembles, here are the 25 best-dressed brides, plus a little information on how they landed on “the one.”
