1. Ball Gowns

If you have a flair for the dramatic and are looking to make and entrance, a ball gown might be a great choice.  There were plenty of them on the Fall 2018 Bridal runways so your choices are plenty.  You can add some sophistication to the ball gown by wearing tulle or jacquard to the gown.

2. Bows

Do you want a wedding gown that is even more feminine?  Add one or two or more bows to your wedding dress and voilà!  Your wedding dress is ornate and even more beautiful.  The presence of bows was ubiquitous on the runways and it’s not a trend that will leave anytime soon.  So if you’re up for bows, enjoy!  Note below that the Viktor and Rolf wedding dress is also a ball gown satisfying two trends in one wedding dress!

3. Capes and Jackets

Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter is the perfect alternative: It still adds dimension to your gown, but it feels modern. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or jacket for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to reveal a different look for your reception.

4. Halter Necklines

Put the emphasis on your face and show off your shoulders in a dress with an elegant halter neckline. This more modest style also works for a range of body types, as it flatters the upper body and offers additional support for bustier brides.

5. High Collars

A high collar gives off a very high-fashion look. Scalloped lace will give you a regal feel.  For a modern style, select a high collar made of tulle or satin. Statement earrings and a windswept updo perfectly complement this buttoned-up trend.

6. Pink Dresses

The millennial pink trend has taken over bridal fashion. This versatile “it” hue appeared in almost every collection, running the gamut from splashy deep pink embroideries to more ethereal shades of blush and mauve.

7. Slip Dresses

The slinky, curve-skimming slip dress is back on trend. Go for timeless glamour à la Carolyn Bessette Kennedy with a simple, heavy crepe style, or go bohemian with a lace embellished bodice. Either way, this silhouette is effortlessly sophisticated.

8. Split Sleeves

Sheer, split sleeves (long sleeves that split for a streamer-like effect) are a gorgeous way to make an ethereal statement and add movement to your gown. Choose a lace sheath gown with fluttery streamer details or pair the split sleeves with a sultry mermaid-style dress for a romantic look.
