With just over three months to go before we farewell 2022, dress designers in the bridal industry have introduced exciting new collections for brides who are shopping for their special day in 2023. One of our favourite American bridal fashion designers, Enzoani, is releasing 21 swoon-worthy wedding dresses for his Blue by Enzoani label to celebrate the approaching 2023.
The new collection explores different 2023 bridal trends while magnifying the stylistic feature of traditional-meets-modern-with-a-dash-of-sexy that Enzoani is renowned for. The collection features fun experimentation with embroidered lace, chic mikado and crepes, sheer corsets and more! From striking minimalist looks that can take on the skyscrapers of New York to dreamy whimsical gowns that will have the fairies sighing, this collection caters to a broad range of modern brides-to-bes. Here is a closer look at the 2023 Blue by Enzoani collection.
BIG ON THE MINIMALISM
Let's start with a clean slate and dive into the stylishly minimalist ballgowns of the collection. For the bride who loves contemporary cuts and a feminine style, try Pearson in all her glorious mikado fabric featuring a V-plunge illusion sweetheart neckline, illusion side and back panels. The cherry on the icing is the self-covered buttons trailing all the way from the waist to the hem at the back.
If exploring a 2023 wedding dress trend is on your cards, then the strapless mikado ballgown, Peggy, with her statement detachable one-shoulder sleeve, is for you. The effortless gathering at the waist will give cinching to make your waist look smaller.
For the more romantic bride who is after a combination of whimsical and minimalist, Penina, with her sweetheart V-plunge neckline and shimmering beaded sheer panels, will be the one to try. The ballgown also has a fairytale-like tulle ballgown that will sway like a dream for your first dance.
GET ROMANTIC WITH A-LINES
If ballgowns are too daunting, but you still want the romantic big skirt you've always dreamed of for your big day, these A-line gowns are great try-on choices. For the bride who loves bold and modern lace with a touch of contemporary cleanness to her wedding dress, try Paula with her sweet-yet-statement 3D embroidered lace corset and off-the-shoulder tulle straps. The lavish lace and tulle skirt have a layer of soft sparkle tulle and organza which will catch the light and twinkle as you move.
For the bride who wants to turn up the whimsical romance and add a touch of boho, Palmer is the dress to try. This dress has a breathtaking illusion-back corset covered in ethereal 3D motifs. The motives fade into a softly layered tulle skirt to give a woodland-fairy look. The bonus part? The floral off-the-shoulder straps are detachable to provide a second look for your special day.
ALL ABOUT THE SLEEVES
Sleeves are a great way to make a statement or add details to your wedding dress. For the bride wanting a romantic dress with a bold statement, try Petunia with her dreamy detachable tulle bishop sleeves and 3D floral off-the-shoulder sleeves. The sheer corset bodice with embroidery lace trickling down to the lush tulle skirts is the stuff of dreams. If you are a stickler for finer details, the tiny buttons trailing down the back and the hem will catch your fancy.
If making a statement with sleeves is not your cup of tea, but you still want details trailing down your arm, try Pheonix with her detachable beaded illusion jacket. The all-over sequin tulle, married with embroidering lace, will make you shine on the most romantic days. The soft tulle skirt will float around like a cloud when you take it to the dance floor.
GET SULTRY WITH SLITS
According to all the most fashionable wedding trendsetters and magazines, higher-than-thigh slits are the thing for 2023. Patience is the dress for a bride looking to add a modern regal twist with a slit feature. The bold 3D floral motifs run down from the sweetheart corset bodice to the matt organza ballgown skirt, giving a powerful and graceful look. At the same time, the V-plunge illusion neckline and high slit turn on the sexy factor.
If a softer and more boho look is what you are looking for, try Pia with her vine-like 3D motives crawling down to a gorgeous A-line tulle skirt. The flirty skirt has simmering sequins scattered layers, making it look like you are painted with pixie dust. The best part? The romantic asymmetrical off-the-shoulder tulle wrap is detachable to give you a second look for the day.
GENTLY CHIC A-LINES
These A-line dresses are a must-try for brides who love the chicness of smooth chiffon but want some lace. First up is the whimsical Patricia with her delicate lace illusion strap bodice and sultry plunge V-back. The bodice lace work leads to a relaxed A-line chiffon skirt which features an intricate scalloped lace train.
For brides looking for something that will stun at a beachside wedding, Parker, with her sweet, botanical lace bodice and open lace back, is one you must have on your list of dresses to try. The show-stopping detail is in the floaty, soft A-line skirt and dramatic train, which features sheer lace panels crawling with beautiful lace appliques.
Crepe is a stunning matte fabric that gives a touch of contemporary minimalism to dresses. It works great as a statement contrast, especially on the figure-hugging fit and flare shapes. Our editor's pick for crepe dresses for Enzoani's 2023 collection is Payden. Its flirty, one-of-a-kind open corset bodice and connecting off-the-shoulder straps give the dress a bold-yet-romantic look. Top it off with a line of feminine buttons trailing from the back to the end of the cathedral train, and you have the perfect dress for the modern bride who wants a flirty, sophisticated dress that shows off their figure.
Boho babes who want a strapless fitted gown need to try on Perry with her body-contouring crepe skirt and sexy sheer corset bodice, which features geometrical floral lace. The star feature of this gown is the lace train that frames from the side seams and trails elegantly behind.
If a strapless is a little too bare, Preston, with her detachable 3D applique straps and illusion-boned lace corset, is one to explore. The plunging illusion sweetheart neckline adds a touch of modern sexiness, while the buttons at the back will give a touch of elegance. The most stunning feature is the scalloped lace cut hem that is signature to Enzoani.
Strapless and off-the-shoulder dresses aren't everyone's thing. For brides who get stressed about the thought of the dress slipping, Princess is the go-to dress. It has a bold illusion boned corset bodice with crawling floral lace motives that lead from the waist up to the delicate spaghetti straps and over the shoulders down to a low back. The sleek ivory skirt then leads down to a breathtaking scalloped lace cut hem ideal for those dramatic back photos.
LACY OFF THE SHOULDER
Off-the-shoulder straps are a great way to show off our decolletage and shoulders without feeling so bare. It also helps emphasise the hourglass figure for mermaid and fit-and-flare dresses. For the bride wanting vintage sophistication, mermaid gown Paloma with her statement cotton floral lace trialling gown the bodice and over a layer of soft lace will take you back in time. The sheer illusion corset back border with statement lace and a trail of buttons emits an old Hollywood vibe. The highlight? It will have to be the dramatic lace and tulle train that crawls up the back of the dress.
A more modern take on the vintage Hollywood glamour is Promise. The mermaid gown is scattered with delicate 3D floral lace from the plunge V-neck sweetheart neckline of the illusion corset bodice to the flare point of the mermaid tail. From there, a waterfall effect train flares out with a soft lace border. The best part? The dress features a glitter tulle so that you will shine like your favourite celebrity on the red carpet for your special day!
For the whimsical dreamers, Prisha, with her gathered tulle panel bodice, could be the one for you. The mermaid gown is wrapped in soft cotton lace with occasional laser-cut lace used as a highlight. The dress has a stunning illusion corset back that draws down to a Whimsical tulle train with crawling floral lace godets.
STRAPPED IN STYLE
Straps are a great way to emphasise the plunging V-neck look and add a peace-of-mind for brides who are worried about any dress slippage on their big day. For fans of the Lesley gown from Enzoani's last collection, Petal is the gown's version 2.0. It features the much-loved statement cotton embroidering floral motifs and a sultry illusion bodice with sweet spaghetti straps—the bold appliques waterfalls down the figure-hugging dress to pool at a signature Enozani scalloped lace train. We love the V-illusion lace back that cinches in the waist and draws the eye down this Instagram-worth dress.
If spaghetti straps are a must-have on your wedding dress features list, but you also want a bit of bling, try Posie with her sparkling combination of sparkling sequins, beaded motives, 3D floral lace and delicate beading. The bold, soft and sparkling texture mix will catch everyone's eye and make you shine on your special day. The cheeky figure enhances sheer side panels and illusion back, adding a touch of sultry to the glamorous look. A small trail of buttons leads to the top of a sparkling long train surrounded by a ring of crawling lace will make all the guest sigh with admiration on the day.
For brides who have experience with spaghetti straps digging in, Pierce, with her greek goddess style plunge V-neck and back, will have you saying "yes" to the dress. This dress has a sparkling tulle lining that will shimmer as you walk down the aisle, while the sheer side panels will give you a touch of sultry glamour. We are obsessed with how the floral lace motifs drip down the back of the dress to the glittering train with a lace ring.
