Susan Hinckley of Parham House Brides gives her predictions on the best bridal gown trends for the coming season.
"Silhouettes will be simpler, less detail, and an additional twist on the classic gown is the illusion inserts, which were so popular with brides during 2021. 
Sleeves, not strapless gowns with romantic lines in organza, lace and satin will feature strongly amongst many collections.
