12 New Bridal Collections To Have On Your Radar

October traditionally marks the time when bridal brands launch their new wedding dress collections. This year was no different – from feminine creations to simple, structured and wear-again pieces, we've picked our favourites from last month's big reveal...

All products on this page have been selected by our editorial team, however we may make commission on some products.

A Canadian brand available at a range of UK-based boutiques, & For Love’s new collection is Lune 1860. Drawing inspiration from the phases of the moon, and a stunning country home outside of Toronto, the dresses are unapologetically feminine, with coloured accents and delicate materials. We love the ‘Moonlight’ style for something grown up and sensual, and party dresses don’t get better than the Ada mini.

An ode to her daughter, the 17-piece made-to-order Daisy collection from Christie Nicole is perfect for chic, romantic brides. An extension of the label’s debut collection ‘Adele’, Daisy showcases all the Christie Nicole hallmarks through a slightly more elevated and whimsical lens. Shimmering sequinned and pleated tulles, intricate hand-beaded fabrics, dreamy signature 3D floral appliqués and dramatic, flirtatious silhouettes are all stitched into fun, feminine pieces handcrafted in Sydney by Christie and her expert team.

New York-based Danielle Frankel is almost unrivalled for a quality of detail usually seen only among Europe’s top couturiers. The brand’s latest collection is full of dramatic silhouettes and shapes, from sculptural column dresses with interesting necklines to full-on ballgowns with voluminous skirts and appliqués. We love the exquisite pleating on the ‘Guinevere’ style – a perfect blend of traditional and contemporary.

‘Memoirs of Her’ is inspired by the lakes of Italy, and the sultriness and moodiness of poetry. Comprising eight gowns and two veils, the range honours artisanal craftsmanship, with highlights including the made-to-order Anu gown – a deconstructed silk masterpiece designed to look as effortless as it feels. For brides looking for a second party dress, the backless Zsa Zsa gets our vote.

London-based Kate Halfpenny’s 2023 collection took her right back to her roots as a young ingenue starting out in the industry. Next year will also mark the tenth anniversary of the Halfpenny flagship store, so the latest range of dresses take on extra meaning. A diverse and playful edit of bold silhouettes and thoughtfully constructed pieces, these are dresses for brides unafraid to make a statement, with long and short lengths available to suit every aspect of your day.

Sheer organza overlays, puff sleeves, feather-edged veils… Fun and whimsical details are what Jessica Bennett does best and that’s exactly what the 2023 collection delivers. The ‘Magda’ collection truly has something for everyone – whether you’re looking for something feminine and off-the-shoulder, mini-length and embroidered, or sharp and tailored. It’s also great to see everything’s designed with real women’s bodies in mind.

If she ever takes another trip down the aisle, we could easily see Kate Moss picking something from Israeli label Liz Martinez’s ‘The Other Me’ collection. Full of unique bridal pieces adorned with feathers, tulle and sequins, this isn’t a dress range for wallflowers or classic brides. But if asymmetric hems, daring necklines and sheer fabrics are for you, you’re going to love it. No matter how daring some of the pieces, we like that everything still has an unabashedly feminine feel.

The ‘Riviera’ collection from Prea James seems almost entirely traditional at first glance, but look closer and you’ll notice it has made clever changes to ensure its designs feel right up to date. A modern take on classic silhouettes, much of the contemporary feel is in the details – think oversized bows, puff sleeves and thigh-high splits – while the fabrics evoke a sense of true luxury, with smooth-as-butter silk and delicate organza both making regular appearances.

Vintage-inspired womenswear brand RIXO has announced its fourth bridal collection, which will be available to purchase from April 2023. Inspired by the shapes and styles of 1930s Hollywood, there are ten dresses to choose from, with many of the silhouettes focused on the ceremony part of a wedding day. Vintage fabrics and trims are a constant feature, with plenty of popular occasion wear from RIXO’s ready-to-wear line adapted for brides. If you need something sooner, RIXO’s third bridal collection is available to show now. Prices start from £285-£1,450; sizes range from a UK6 to UK20.

The ‘Cristóbal’ collection from Sophie et Voilà doesn’t claim to draw inspiration from Balenciaga’s work – nor does it try to emulate his technique or mastery. Instead, it’s a collection that evokes his philosophy and his attitude to fashion. As is customary with this label, architectural lines and Basque culture intertwine to give life to 15 new pieces featuring rhinestones, taffeta ruffles, patch pockets, fluid silhouettes, transparency and removable pieces.

The OWN Studio has dropped ‘Edition 006’, taking inspiration from self-expression, individuality and the transition between day and night. The label anticipates 2023 will be another year when brides hunt down cool separates they can wear again and mix and match in different ways, so the collection is designed to help brides build their own bridal wardrobe. By redefining the traditional bridal silhouette for the modern woman, voluminous skirts are contrasted with low scoop necklines and drop waists, lending the outfits a contemporary and nonchalant attitude. There are 26 pieces to choose from in total, and countless ways to wear them.

Viktor&Rolf’s Spring 2023 ‘Mariage’ collection is full of dramatic ballgowns, chic mini dresses and sculptural A-line gowns. Taking inspiration from luxurious fabrics, the collection is enriched by intricate brocade and detailed jacquard woven into the designs, while fitted bodices create clean silhouettes that evoke a sense of regal grandeur. Signature Viktor&Rolf bows, originating from the Haute Fantaisie collection, cascade down tiered tulle skirts that splash out into voluminous trains, making this the perfect choice for maximalist brides.
