Our Favorite Trends of 2018

We are halfway into 2018, and we have been keeping an eye out for new and exciting trends for our beautiful brides. From Bridal Fashion Week Fall 2018 to the exquisite royal wedding, there have been many gown inspiration for brides of all styles. We handpicked five of our favorites from what have seen so far this year!

  1. Colors- Colored gowns are an emerging trend that gives the unique bride a sense of individuality and creative freedom. It is daring but also very elegant. Bridal Fashion Week debuted a various colors like blush pink, powder blue, gold, and silver.

  2. The Royal Influence- There has been a lot of buzz around the simplicity and elegance of Meghan Markle’s wedding dress. Bridal Fashion Week designers also showcased “naked” dresses as a way to veer the eye away from the ever-popular sparkle and lace. Other lines have also been inspired by vintage royal weddings giving gowns a more dramatic look.

  3. Dramatic Veils- Tying into the the royal inspiration, dramatic veils are always an elegant and regal touch to your wedding day look. Adding a long cathedral or royal length veil adds an ethereal and dreamy feel to any gown. Dramatic veils are also a perfect way to frame the train of the gown.

  4. Capes- One of the biggest talks of Bridal Fashion Week Fall 2018 was the cape. Adding a cape is another way to romanticize a gown and give it a dramatic look. This could be a great alternative for a bride that may not want a long veil. Short caplets are another modification to this trend.

  5. So Many Sleeves- Sleeves have always been a beautiful look, especially for a cold fall/winter wedding. 2018 has introduced new and old styles to give any dress a unique twist. Some of these styles include cold-shoulder sleeves, modest sleeves, and detached sleeves as well as the return of the 80’s/90’s puff sleeve.
