8 stunning wedding dress trends for autumn 2018
From pearls and belts to fringe, these are some of the hottest bridal trends to look out for.
1. TOUCH OF COLOUR
Designers have been experimenting with pops of colour in bridal gowns for a few seasons, and it’s no different on the fall 2018 runways. The trend seems to be going strong, with colourful additions taking the form of a placement print or contrasting fabric detail.
2. INTERESTING NECKLINES
Unusual necklines make for an interesting talking point, and there are plenty to choose from this season – from collared dresses to jewelled high necklines, the neck seems to be en vogue, and we’re loving it!
There’s just something so cool about a belted dress, and there’s loads more cool points when it’s a full on wedding dress! Designers like Carolina Herrera really embraced belts this fall, and whether it’s in the form of a dainty beaded style, ribbon tie or proper fabric belt, we’re delighted at the new take.
4. ASYMMETRIC HEMS
A fun party-style dress that’s gorgeous enough to wear to your wedding? We’re in! Bridal gowns with asymmetric hemlines were everywhere on the fall 2018 runways, and they’re a fresh option for brides who want the best of both worlds.
It is autumn after all, and if you’re looking for a stylish cover up to shelter you from the evening chill, this trend has got you covered (literally!) We’ve seen capes and capelets and they’re great, but now, bridal jackets are really making us swoon. Perfect for giving your bridal style an added element of cool.
Here’s a trend with longevity – the classic pearl has once again made its way into the forefront of bridal collections, with smatterings of the gorgeous beads adorning the most beautiful gowns. Be it as an embellishment or as buttons running down the arms or back, we can’t get enough of pearls!
The chic and classic bride is well catered for in the fall 2018 collections, with a minimal, pared-down style emerging as a definite trend. Simple, unadorned bridal gowns are taking the place of fussier looks, so there’s plenty of choice for brides who are championing an understated style.
Now really, who doesn’t love a bit of fringe? We know we do! Certainly one of the most playful trends on the fall 2018 bridal runway, fringe is everywhere from skirts to sleeves and hemlines, and it’s sure to be a hit when you go for a twirl on the dance floor!
