Detailing of a green wedding dress by Chotronette… love those puff sleeves!

On Offbeat Bride, we've featured hundreds of weddings with brides in unique green wedding dresses … but if our data is accurate (and it usually is) it looks like 2022 is going to be the year of the green wedding dress! With this in mind, we wanted to talk through some of our favorite green wedding dress bridal trends that we're noticing this year. You'll find lots of big puffy sleeves, unexpected shades of green, and some truly fantastical options…

Green wedding dress separates

Why go for a one-piece green wedding dress when you can enjoy the comfort and versatility of wedding dress separates? Not only do you then have two halves of an outfit that you can mix and match for future special events, but they're also way easier to pee in!

The lace top and emerald skirt are separate! This one feels perfect for summer weddings.

Green wedding dresses with capes

During non-binary week, I think we established that wedding capes are the ULTIMATE wedding accessory for folks of all genders.

This emerald green wedding dress from GuCiDesigns is rocking the most glorious cape! And we all know how much we love wedding capes.
This caped green wedding dress has SO MANY SEQUIN SPARKLES. This hue would be so great for a fall wedding.

Fairy fabulous emerald green wedding dresses

For when you want to go the full fantasy route… elvish wedding? Fairy wedding? These options help you get into a more fantastical, cosplay frame of mind.

This green wedding dress by KMKDesigns is covered with lily pads and PURE MAGIC. That corset creates an amazing sillouette and all the different fabrics just make for a magic look for your wedding day.
