Fashion's biggest night out, better known as the Met Gala, has successfully come to a close; and as with previous years, our favorite celebs made a splash on the famous Met steps. Co-chaired by Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds, Regina King, and Lin-Manuel Miranda (including honorary co-chairs Anna Wintour, Tom Ford, and Adam Mosser), the 2022 Met Gala was unlike any other, as wedding fashion clearly stole the show.
Adhering to the theme, “In America: An Anthology of Fashion," A-listers fully embraced their most regal interpretations of the "Gilded Glamour" dress code and channeled their inner brides—sporting some of the most gorgeous wedding-inspired gowns and accessories. It's safe to say that the Met Gala brought the aisle to the red carpet, and we can expect many brides-to-be to follow the trends set by these fashion-forward looks.
So, eager to know which celebs took a chance on bridal this year? Ahead, keep scrolling to see the top 10 bridal fashion trends from the 2022 Met Gala red carpet.
From Marchesa to Monique Lhuillier and Oscar De La Renta, feathers have been a huge bridalwear trend over the past several seasons. Brides who subscribe to more bold aesthetics should take a cue from Eiza González and Emma Stone, and incorporate this fun trend into their wedding day ensembles.

Tiaras are the best way to show that you're the belle of the ball, so why not wear one for your special day! Both Anna Wintour and Emma Chamberlain wore this royal, but bridal, accessory on the Met Gala red carpet.

If the Spring 2023 Bridal Fashion Week collections taught us anything, it's that blue gowns will increasingly become popular in the upcoming years. If you're a bride that's searching for a more non-traditional look, follow Imaan Hammam and Quannah Chasinghorse's lead, and opt for an ethereal, flowy blue gown.

You can never go wrong with sparkles, especially when it comes to your wedding day! We absolutely love Kim Kardashian and Phoebe Bridgers's all-over sequined looks, which are equal parts sexy and chic. What's more, each gown is reminiscent of designs you can purchase from bridal designers like Berta, Galia Lahav, and Mira Zwillinger.

Weddings and ballgowns have easily become synonymous, and this silhouette will only continue to become popular as the years continue.
