These Top 90s Bridal Trends are BACK in Style

1990s wedding dress trends are back, and better than ever before.

Fashion has a tendency to repeat itself. And we are seeing that right now with nostalgic 90s looks making their way back onto the bridal fashion scene. But we also have to admit, that so many of the iconic looks from the 90s never really left. For instance, minimalistic slip dresses with spaghetti straps were huge in the 1990s, and they have become an iconic staple in bridal fashion. But we are also seeing more halter and square necklines, relaxed and streamlined 90s inspired silhouettes and even a resurgence of puff sleeves that were huge in 90s bridal fashion. Relaxed and high shine fabrics like silk and satin were everywhere in the 90s, and we are seeing them once again dominate the modern bridal scene. Whether you were a 90s baby or not, this a list of the top 90s bridal trends that are BACK, is one that you just do not want to miss!

01. Slip Dresses

Slip dresses were everywhere in the 90s. And although they never really left, we are seeing more and more of them emerge onto the bridal scene. Their effortless silhouettes and minimalistic style are just what modern brides are craving. And with less formal weddings becoming more popular, you can never go wrong with a 90s inspired slip dress.

Slip dresses definitely didn't start in the 90s. They were huge even back in the 1920s when Old Hollywood Glam was dominant. But the squared neckline and spaghetti straps of this next slip dress from Galia Lahav, has a very 90s inspired feel to it.

02. Square Necklines

Square necklines made their way onto the fashion scene in a big way in the 90s. And they were the perfect compliment to the minimalist and sleek styles that dominated the era. Today, square necklines are making a big comeback and we have to admit that we are loving it.

Jenny Yoo: Classic Square Neckline

06. Short and Sweet Minis

Everything seemed to be bigger in the 80s. And after this time of maximalism, minimalism took center stage in the 90s. And many brides began to opt for less-is-more bridal styles. And that is when mini dresses started to have a moment. Today, we are seeing more 90s inspired bridal mini dresses than ever before.

I discovered Still White while in a different relationship. I would spend hours looking at dresses and liking them. This came back to bite me in the butt when the relationship ended. That all said, when my future husband proposed, Still White was on my radar. It wasn't until after multiple disappointing dress appointments that I finally searched for secondhand dresses in the style I had come to adore. I found my dress! After a brief panic over a failed transaction on a different site, I was able to purchase the dress of my dreams through Stillwhite. All of that to say, I highly recommend Still White. It's excellent for locating secondhand dresses and uses a unique style of contact-first to purchase.
