Wedding Dress Trends 2018

As we inch toward 2018, we revisit some of the top wedding dress trends predicted to lead next year’s bridal couture.

What is taking off and what has been a flop? If you’re planning on tying the knot in the near future, stay ahead of the

style pack with the latest wedding dress trends for 2018.


Big Bows

Old Hollywood style is back, with big, billowy, oversized bows a staple of the 2018 chic set. Extra-large bows add a

feminine touch to the simplest of silhouettes, espousing playfulness and beauty for every bride.


Bridal Body Jewelry

Inspired by the exquisite body jewelry of brides across the globe, bridal body jewelry features heavily in 2018. No

body parts are off limits – choose your bridal statement piece to best reflect your own individual style and flair.


Capacious Creations


Victorian-era volume is in, with all the romance of Pride and Prejudice and the drama of Wuthering Heights. From

sensational shoulders to hedonistic hemlines, capacious creations are making big waves on the bridal fashion scene.

You may not be marrying Mr. Darcy, but you can still wear the dress!

Casual Chic

Never before has it been so comfortable to get hitched! Brides are bucking the too-tight, awkward and uneasy fashion

choices of seasons’ past and opting for low-maintenance bridal pieces that allow them to remain natural and relaxed.

This trend allows every bride to let their individual style shine.

Glamorous Gloves

The epitome of classic style and sophistication, the evening glove returns to bridal couture as an in-demand

accessory. Choices range from elbow-length elegance to delicate wrist-length options to suit every style.

Monochrome Minutiae

We witnessed this high-contrast trend in 2017 and there are no signs of it going away anytime soon. Monochrome

has played a key role on the wedding scene for some time, spilling over into wedding couture with black trims, dark

details and black velvet ribbons.


Shoulder Savers

If showing off your shoulders isn’t your thing, you’re in luck as the cover-up has never been so hot. Whether it be a

capelet to ward off the cold or a flutter sleeve for the ultimate boho style statement, shoulder covers are the ultimate

bridal fashion accessory this wedding season.


Veils Unveiled

Veils are back -- but not as you’d expect. Anticipate contemporary twists on an old favorite, with veils being worn as

neck wraps that double as jewelry, or draped across the shoulders like an upmarket pashmina.  Be as creative as you

desire – but when it comes to veils in 2018, avoid convention at all costs.
