Wedding gowns seem like such a timeless tradition. But truth is, they go through trends just like most everything else. Last year was all about blush, flower crowns and bohemian chic. But next year? Well, these are some of the trends we are seeing for 2018 weddings. Best of all, there are designs to match every personality and every style, so whether you are planning a chic, colorful or quirk celebration, one of these trends could likely work for you!
Incorporate Black with Your White Gown
While blush remains a popular alternative to traditional white wedding attire, for 2018 many designers presented pops of black, instead! From satin bows to floral flourishes and structural detailing along the top of gowns, many designers went bold with their choices, by mixing black into their wedding looks.
This pairs well with green and copper, for nature-inspired weddings, or with glitz and glitter for an elegant and upscale wedding!
Consider a Cape!
Another fun addition for 2018 brides is a cape. Not only does it serve as a statement piece, but it can be a practical addition for fall and winter brides. Go with something simple, if you want to keep the focus on your dress, or really up the ante with a detailed (hello faux fur!) cape or cloak.
Stand Out with Color, Texture and Prints
Black isn’t the only color being added to the wedding mix, next season. Many designers also showed gowns in bold colors like blue or bright pink. Embroidery and printed gowns also proved all the rage on the runways.
These one-of-a-kind gowns are perfect for any bride who fancies herself non-traditional, or even wonderfully quirky.
Go Big and Bold with Your Veil
Another show stealer for 2018 is larger-than-life, or at least tradition, wedding veils. Rather than going with something simple and demure, or using a flower crown or jeweled headband to add to your bridal style, why not consider a long, or even ornate wedding veil?
No One Says It Has to Be a Dress
Here at Texas Old Town, we have always encouraged our brides to march to their own fashion beat. Sometimes that means traditional ballgowns, sometimes simple skirts paired with cowboy boots, and sometimes, it means wearing separates – like a chic pantsuit – instead of a dress, altogether.
Separates can create an elegant and unique look for your wedding day, and they’re especially appropriate for brides opting for elopements, or elopement-style weddings!
