Runway Wedding Dresses From Maggie Sottero's Fall 2022 Collection With Models Wearing Wedding Dresses By Rebecca Ingram, Boston By Sottero and Midgley, And Scarlet By Maggie Sottero


There are a few things that we love about Spring: fresh blooms, warmer days, and the Chicago Bridal Market where we get to debut our runway wedding dresses in our brand-new collection for Fall 2022!

Our newest gowns are full of romantic, dreamy, and feminine energy (swoon-worthy, right?). Though it was hard to pick and choose from these gorgeous wedding dresses, we came up with a list of nine sneak-peek gowns that we think encompass the Fall 2022 Maggie Sottero spirit.

Before you start oohing and awing over these exclusive dresses though, make sure to take our Style Quiz and find the wedding dress style for you. To be in the know on when these gowns hit the stores though, sign up for some exclusive text messages below!#MaggieInspiration

Bridal Trend: Cottagecore and Celestial Styled Wedding Dresses

Call it boho, call it folksy—the “free spirit” bridal aesthetic is all about soft, billowy, ultra-romantic wedding gowns that look straight out of a woodland fairytale. Our take on the cottagecore bride trend? We believe exposed boning, vintage bishop sleeves, and fresh princess silhouettes in a variety of shimmer, illusion, and lace embellishments are the way to go.

While we might have been inspired by woodland fairytales for cottagecore gowns, we took queues directly from the galaxy for our celestial-styled wedding dresses. Soft shimmers that remind us of starlight, lacy beaded backs as intricate as the Milky Way, and vibrant colors as rich as the night sky were our inspiration behind our new Maggie Sottero, Rebecca Ingram, and Sottero and Midgley gowns.

Recurring Trend: Simple, Satin, And Stylish Wedding Dresses

Simplicity and satin wedding dresses will never go out of style, so of course, it’s back for another year in a row! We incorporated this sexy and elegant fabric into beautiful ballgowns, sleek fitted dresses, and sexy backless gowns.

Updated Trend: Bridal Gowns With Unique And Intricate Backs

Open back were our bread and butter, but we’ve given them a little bit of a facelift with gorgeous intricate, lace backs with dreamy buttons. Whether you’re looking for something fierce, sexy, romantic, or dreamy, you’ll find your dream back in our collection of new runway wedding dresses!

Trend Becoming a Staple: Colorful Wedding Dresses

Gone are the traditional ivory colorways for wedding gowns! Instead, colorful wedding dresses are dominating bridal fashion. Maggie Sottero Designs hopped on this train early with our collection of black wedding dresses like Zander by Sottero and Midgley, as well as are personalization options of gowns in misty mauve and blush; Now we are offering gowns with hints of green, pink, and RED!

Recurring Trend: Versatile Bridal Accessories

This season serves up another stunning selection of bridal accessories, from statement capes and classic veils to removable sleeves and blingy embellishments. We’re loving these trends for their versatility; brides have more options than ever to personalize their wedding aesthetic, switch up their ensemble between ceremony and reception, and create a one-of-a-kind look for wedding photos. 

Fresh Trend: Bold Beading and Unique Sparkle

While we still adore romantic lace and glamorous simple wedding designs, intricate and unique beading has captured our hearts (and it will capture yours too!). Whether you’re looking for sexy or elegant, boho but modern, you will fall in love with our beaded gowns this Fall 2022!

Without further ado, here are some of our runway wedding dresses we debuted in Chicago! You’ll be able to shop these stunning new designs faster than you can say “I do!” Be sure to contact an Authorized Retailer near you for more information.

Now that we’ve covered the most popular bridal trends of the season, we’ll dive into our gorgeous lineup of hottest runway wedding dresses. Scroll on!

Runway Wedding Dresses from The Maggie Sottero Collection

Ethereal, effortlessly sexy, celestial, and feminine were a few of our inspirations behind our Fall 2022 Maggie Sottero collection. We aimed to capture the energy of Audrey Hepburn, Jane Austen novels, and the stars themselves. You will see these inspirations come to life the flowy fabrics of our skirts, tonal beading, and delicate laces that embody modern romance!

Garden-Inspired Wendi by Rebecca Ingram

Wendi by Rebecca Ingram is one of those mermaid wedding dresses that will look stunning at any angle. This unique gown is head-to-toe lace and head-to-toe glitter (what could be better?!). On top of all that though, it also has a sexy illusion lace V-neckline as well as an open illusion lace back that has us practically salivating.

What we also love about this gown is the versatility of the style. This mermaid wedding dress could be worn in an ornate ballroom, a whimsical rustic barn, or on the beach at sunset. Some might say the sky is the limit, but we think Wendi is!

Soft and Glamorous Lily by Rebecca Ingram

Lily by Rebecca Ingram? We dream of her. This sweet fit-and-flare gown has stuck with us because of its classic sweetheart neckline and floral, shimmer lace. As if this wedding dress couldn’t get better, it’s also hitting one of the bridal trends we’ve seen this season with it’s exposed bodice with boning detail.

Honestly, we could go on and on about Lily. We couldn’t get enough of this creamy crepe gown, so we created a Sister Style for her: Lily Lynette by Rebecca Ingram!

Regal and Lacy Kingsley by Sottero and Midgley
