90s Wedding Dress Trend Styles
1. Puff Sleeves
Poofy or puff sleeves have come back in a major way. I love the look, although sometimes when I wear my puff sleeve sweater I feel like, “here I am with my poof sleeves” but it’s all good. :) This sleeve style is on-trend right now whether you select a short sleeve puff sleeve or long sleeves with a little poof.
Here’s a perfect example! $89, Lulus.
These long puffy sleeves look elegant in sheer chiffon material. I love the classic bridal buttons! Get this dress for $79 at Lulus.
This has a slightly poofed sleeve, but it is subtle. I love the long sleeves and open back! Get it here.
Annnnndd…. hold the phone, this dress has pockets! It’s a bit casual, so you may like it more for engagement photos or a laidback backyard wedding, but it’s beautiful nonetheless. By Lulus, $84.
2. Square Neck
A minimalist square neck is perfect for the modern bride and this is one of the biggest 90s wedding dress trends for 2023. Choose a stretchy crepe material and a long maxi skirt with a slit for maximum nineties vibes.
This square neck is giving us 90s vibes for less: it’s only $89 and has rave reviews. By Lulus.
This style has a 90s square neck and back! Love the sheer long sleeves. Get it here.
Go with long lace sleeves! Here’s another example with that iconic 1990s square neckline: $75, Lulus. It also has the fashionable leg slit, which is coming up as one of these 1990s wedding dress trends on the list!
Loving the off-the-shoulder trends that are coming back strong from the 1990s! It shows off your shoulders and gives the appearance of an elongated neck. Beautiful!
This style is a favorite: it’s $119 and available here. It even has a thigh-slit, one of the most 90s things to ever come out of the decade’s fashion.
Long sleeve off-the-shoulder dresses are making a comeback, too.
Here’s an example of this look, $118, Lulus. I’m loving this variation of lacy sleeves and a wide open-neck and partial open back.
Although the 1990s wedding dresses were typically more minimalist in style, there’s no reason why you can’t opt for an off-shoulder neckline as a nod to the nineties and choose exquisite beading all over.
Case in point? Look how gorgeous this dress is! By Lulus, $298.
4. Slip Dress
Although this looks a lot like the slip that used to be worn under the dress, a slip-style wedding dress is majorly popular at the moment. Rock yours with spaghetti straps and a shiny satin material to maximize this long and lean look; pair with excellent undergarments so you don’t have any visible lines.
Here’s a stylish yet simple dress you’ll love with a slip style: $99, via Lulus.
Here’s an example of another minimalist yet elegant 90s wedding dress with a slip style and thin spaghetti straps. $79, Lulus.

This short dress makes a perfect reception dress. Stylish, silky, and spaghetti-strapped. Get it here.
Hatler style bridal gowns are a 90’s trend we’re loving, especially for this list of 90’s wedding dress trends. A halter neckline is a great way to emphasize your neckline and, as a bonus, you won’t need (or want to) add a necklace to your look because you can let the halter top do the accessorizing for you. As a bonus, some bridal gown designers are incorporating this 90s halter trend into the overall style and embellishing it with pearls and crystals for a little sparkle down the aisle.
Satin, halter top, and a long leggy slit? This is pure 90s glory! Get it here, $88.
Here’s another option: a twist halter satin gown with a nice flowy skirt. Get it here.
And this fashion-forward style: skinny spaghetti straps create a halter neckline to give a nod to the 90s wedding dress trend. $89, from Lulus.
6. Thigh Slit
A leg or thigh slit is one of the most iconic 1990s wedding dress trends. Get leggy and show off those gams with one of these stylish options.
This ballgown inspired dress has spaghetti straps and a leg slit. It’s lovely! $118, shop here.
This next dress has a spaghetti strap neckline and a column dress silhouette complete with a thigh slit. Very 90s! $89, shop here.
7. Mini Dress
Is there a more 90s look than a mini dress? Although you likely won’t choose a mini dress as The Dress (but you could), shorter styles make perfect options for what to wear to your bridal shower, engagement party, bachelorette bash, or as a reception dress. Here are some styles that will show off your leggy look à la the 1990s.
This dress has two 90s trends in one: a mini dress and an off-the-shoulder neckline! Get it here.
Love taffeta and an off-shoulder neckline? This cute mini is perfect for your pre-wedding celebrations! $64 via here.

And last but not least, this mock neck mini has amazingly rave reviews. I already put the black dress in my cart. It’s perfect for your bachelorette party and has 90s vibes written all over it. Get it here for only $46. Other colors are available (and many reviewers stated they came back and bought all of them!)
As you can see, the 1990s fashion styles were a huge transition from traditional bridal gowns to more fashion-forward fabrics, cuts, and minimalist silhouettes. The popularity of 90s wedding dress styles live on through simple twists, whether a simple drop shoulder or an elaborate puff sleeve. If you love a classic look or a more modern minimalism, you’ll find it on this list of 90s wedding dress trends.
