4 Bridal Trends Expected to Dominate in 2018

Where better to seek inspiration for your perfect wedding ensemble than the runways of top bridal designers? Here are four of 2018’s most fabulous bridal trends for you to try.

 Ball Gowns

For those among you who have dreamed of being a princess for a day since they were little girls, there really is only one dress option: the ball gown. And if this is you, you’re in luck – they’re one of 2018’s biggest trends! From tulle to jacquard varieties, options abound for this voluminous style, and whichever you decide to go for, you’re sure to make an entrance.

Capes and Capelets

This trend is a winner because it works double-duty: apart from making a style statement, it gets top marks for practicality too. If you’re not a fan of veils, a cape will do the job just as well, whether you need a stylish way of covering up for your ceremony, or if your big day is taking place in the winter months and you need some protection from the cold.

Halter Neck Dresses

This sporty neckline has really come into vogue again over the last couple of years, and apart from making an elegant silhouette, it’s just perfect for showing off your shoulders. Whatever your shape or body type, a halter neckline is a wonderful option: it flatters the upper body and, if you’re a little top heavy, provides extra support.

Jumpsuits and Pantsuits

A look that bridal designers have only flirted with so far, jumpsuits and pantsuits are finding their way into the mainstream in 2018, making for an excellent option for the alternative bride. They’re comfortable and flattering, and don’t necessarily mean skimping on the drama of a wedding gown if that’s your kind of thing – hello, detachable train!
