We have taken inspiration from Brides Magazine to bring you the wedding dress trends that will be huge in 2018. Your wedding dress is unique to you and your special day, so we recommend trying on as many different styles as possible – so you can see what works for you. Pick out your favourite trends and use them to form the basis of your dress.

Plunging Necklines

Our favourite bridal designers have nailed the plunging wedding dress style for 2018. The illusion necklines, embroidered and embellished styles, are perfect for brides wanting to show some skin. Elegant deep v-necklines are offset with long sleeves and gorgeous 3D detailing.

Split Skirts

Side splits and sheer layering reign supreme in 2018. This style is perfect for bohemian brides, opting for a destination wedding or stylish girls wanting a fashion edge. If you’re dead set on having a side split in your wedding dress; you can choose from a subtle split with peek-a-boo lace, to full wrap styles.


With a resurgence of soft, feminine, romantic gowns for 2018 comes a smattering of sparkle. Glittering embellishment will add a touch of magic to your stunning dress.


From 80’s-style puffballs and billowing bishop sleeves, to tailored lace sleeves and circular flounce styles – sleeves are set to be big for 2018.


Bows are still a big bridal trend for 2018 – and one we love! This season, they are everywhere; from floppy pussybows to more structured details and mini bows on the straps. There are so many ways to incorporate a bow into your wedding look.

Black is the New White

Yes, really: black is one of the biggest wedding trends for 2018. Surprise your guests as you walk down the aisle from full-scale black to a subtle trim or grey scale. Time to turn to the dark side.

Feathered Friends

Get ready to flutter your feathers like you’re on centre stage in Swan Lake; they’re 2018’s most on-trend embellishment. Think full-feathered skirts paired with a bodice, plumage is a surprisingly wearable way to do drama.


A trend that extends from the ready-to-wear catwalks, off-the-shoulder is the shape of choice for both Spring and Fall 2018. Perfect for brides who just don’t fancy strapless, they can be worn on their own or with a cosy cover up for Winter weddings.

Pale Blues 

After seasons of blush pink domination, pale blue will take centre stage in 2018 as the crowned Queen of pastels. Choose from a floaty, ‘softly-sotfly’ approach or a show stopping regal gown.


Capes have been on the trend radar for a few seasons – and they’re going absolutely nowhere for 2018. Think short and sweet knee-length capes, structured pleats or full-scale glitzy superhero!


So, these are the trends; what will you choose?
