Bridal trends tend to be less variant than other fashion trends, as more often than not brides want a dress that is timeless and classic. It’s not often that you go to a wedding and the bride is wearing a black frothy dress, say, or a jewel-encrusted jumpsuit. That being said there are some key trends that even the most classic brides might be tempted by this season. We turned to the founder of Browns Brides, Caroline Burstein, to discover the wedding dress trends that she is most excited about for 2018 and that she believes will have the biggest impact over the next 12 months. Keep scrolling to see — and shop— the five biggest wedding dress trends for 2018.
The off-the-shoulder trend has been a huge commercial success over the past few seasons, and it has now made its way into bridalwear too as seen at Ines Di Santo (above.)
Next up on Burstein’s list of key bridal trends we have a jumpsuit, and she notes that Peter Langner is one of the key designers leading this.
Another trend that Burnstein predicts will be key in 2018 is short dresses — this is for brides looking to break traditional dress conventions and opt for something a little different.
Burstein says that when it comes to colour nudes and blush pinks will have the biggest impact in 2018, as seen at Monique Lhuillier and Sachin & Babi (as above.)
As for details, bows were everywhere during 2018 Bridal Fashion Week, as the likes of Marchesa and Oscar de la Renta adorned their gowns with dramatic bows, ties and sashes.
