Wedding Dress Shopping? Here Are The Top 7 Trends Every Bride Needs to Know

In the bridal fashion world, 2017 is history and Spring 2018 has sprung—and what a gorgeous season it is for brides-to-be! I had my kitten heels firmly on the ground recently for New York Bridal Week (#NYBW), where the wedding world’s finest including Marchesa, Monique Lhuillier, Oscar de la Renta, Berta Bridal and Reem Acra showed their dreamiest dresses for the upcoming season. Surrounded by tiers of tulle, miles of re-embroidered lace, oversize trumpet skirts, chandelier bolero jackets and oh-so-many capes, I noticed this was a season of chance and massive variety when it comes to bridal style.

Whether you’re a classic girl or a bohemian bride, there’s a trend for you—here’s seven of the best.

Black Ribbon Bows

This was the detail of choice for so many designers, but our favourite ribbon-trimmed gowns were at Reem Acra, whose collection was extra-dramatic and dazzling thanks to her collaboration with Tiffany & Co.

Cool Girl Bride

At Oscar de la Renta, a white jean jacket topped a little white tank and gigantic tulle skirt emblazoned with the late designers signature was one of the buzziest looks of #NYBW. We also loved the serious statement, rock n’ roll bijoux.

The Micro-Mini

If you want a look that’s Kylie Jenner slick and red carpet sexy, Berta’s marabou feathered mini-dress with a plunging deep v-neckline is defo your dream dress.

The classic ball gown is back after several seasons out of the spotlight and we love the update on tradition with the inclusion of this modern design detail we spied at so many shows, seen here at Ines Di Santo.

As evidenced on the recent Met Ball red carpet, the naked dress is here to stay and still firmly has it’s place in bridal fashion too! This dress by Monique Lhuillier is on point with its subtle but sexy sheerness.

Skip the veil, wear a cape! Virtually every designer showed dramatic caped gowns but our fave is definitely this show-stealer at Naeem Khan.

Floral fabrics and embellishments have gone wild with three-dimensional details like these boho blossoms at Marchesa Notte. This Mother Earth trend is simple, modern and uber-dreamy.
