Survey rates most common wedding gown styles

What are the most popular wedding gown styles? How many bridesmaids do people have? A survey of brides-to-be answered these questions and more.

A new wedding survey by Anthropologie ranks the most loved wedding dress styles and reveals that nearly half of those surveyed had two or more dresses for their wedding ceremony and reception.

The survey found that the mermaid and ballgown style wedding dressed were the most favored, with the A-line style on the rise and most popular with brides-to-be.

The survey found that 2/3rds of the brides-to-be said they were planning to have four additional events outside of the wedding day, “with the four most popular being engagement photos, the rehearsal dinner, the honeymoon, and a bachelorette party.”

The most popular wedding theme was “romantic,” according to the survey, but “bohemian” themed weddings are on the rise.

According to the survey, 63% “of all those who responded are planning to have a bridal party size of 5 or more, and of that group, 22% stating they will have a bridal party size of more than 10.”

According to the press release, Anthropologie Weddings “polled more than 2,000 people from the Vogue insiders, as well as customers of Anthropologie and fellow brands at URBN Inc.” in order to “understand how style and fashion fit into the wedding planning process, ultimately dissecting current trends, curating a start-to-finish wedding wardrobe, and outlining the essentials for 2023 celebrations.”

The press release was issued on March 13, 2023. It was the first wedding survey done by the company.
