Much like the seasons, wedding dress styles come and go with every year. Bridal Fashion Week often sets a precedent for the wedding dress trends to follow, but of course, it is YOUR big day and you should choose a gown that YOU love and one that is in-keeping with your unique tastes.
You will be reminiscing on this special day for many years to come, looking at photos and videos, and you will take pleasure in knowing you made the greatest wedding dress choice for you.
Having said that, wedding trends are often a great source of inspiration for brides, who are either not completely sure in what they are looking for in a dress, or draw their eye to a dream style they had never initially contemplated or knew existed.
On that premise, here are just five of Mi Amor Bridal’s favourite wedding trends of 2018:
CAPES and CAPELETS
Not only are wedding dress capes and capelets bang on all wedding dress trends, we are confident they will make you feel like the true Wonder Woman that you are on your big day! We know that brides may initially shrug at the thought of wearing a cape, but modern-day capes and capelets come in a multitude of styles to appeal to many different fashion tastes. The designs are limitless, from cropped or floor-length, bedazzled or simple, monochrome or vibrant, co-ordinated, detached or built into the wedding gown designs.
Embroidered wedding dresses are the perfect accompaniment to a boho-inspired wedding, or ideal for you brides who simply want some intricate detailing to your wedding gowns. Embroidery is easily one of the biggest wedding trends of 2018, with many designers leading the way and showing us how embroidery should be done throughout Bridal Fashion Week. The greatest thing about the embroidered wedding dress is that whether you choose for a subtle design or opt for more prominent embroidery, the results are equally as stunning.
TWO-PIECE WEDDING DRESS
Two-piece wedding dresses are a slightly more unconventional choice for brides, but if you are looking for an out-of-the-box and unique outfit for your big day, two-pieces could be your newest companion. A two-piece wedding outfit comes in all styles and designs, whether you opt for a top and skirt or a jacket with a skirt. Two-pieces are a great way to stray from the norm whilst remaining elegant and timeless and they’re a sure way to stand out from the crowd! Other uncustomary wedding outfits we can see filtering into increasing numbers of weddings are jumpsuits, trouser suits, bright or black and white wedding dresses.
An off-the-shoulder wedding dress is an extremely feminine and quite timeless style of wedding dress that looks exquisite on all body shapes. Whether they are acknowledged as a ‘trend’ or not, off-the-shoulder wedding dresses have a strong presence during every wedding season, due to their versatile and extremely flattering shape, they have earned their label as one of the classic. Although the bardot neckline is that of a traditional shape, a modern twist on this trend is the ‘detached sleeve’ trend.
Again, a lace wedding dress seems quite a timeless piece, but the wedding trend of 2018 is really taking it up to the next notch. In years previous, the focus has been on centred on soft and delicate lace that swathes airy vintage wedding dresses. However, in 2018 your lace wedding gown should be chunky, layered and most certainly textured.
