Wedding Dress Trends for 2018

Fabulous Tulle Sweetheart Neckline Mermaid Wedding Dresses with Beaded Lace Appliques

Many opinions arise when it comes to planning for wedding ceremonies, most especially now that weddings are getting hotter and more colourful by the day. And one of the most important aspects of preparing for our weddings is the selection of wedding dresses. Choosing the right pattern of dressing in weddings goes a long way in determining how colourful and acceptable the wedding would be. 

However, 2018 has come with a different tone in the course of choosing the right dresses for wedding ceremonies. Things have changed from what we used to see, to things new, making weddings more adorable now than ever before. And as we move on in 2018, it is obvious that people have started to spend more money on wedding ceremonies than ever before. Especially in regards to the things they wear. 

 When I started my research for this article, I checked up all the styles that were predicted by stylists to rule 2018 and the list included: 

  • Touch of a bow 
  • Capes,Caplets and Cover -Ups 
  • Power Suits 
  • Bridal Chokers  
  • Gloves 
  • Tiered Gowns 
  • Victorian inspired 
  • Boho Princess 
  • Ornate Headpieces  
  • 3D floral Applique 

And the list goes on and on. 

 I went on to check all the wedding dresses that were made from the collections of renowned fashion houses in the world.  

And as I was about writing on this trends and posting images from the designers, something struck me that I should go online and see what people were wearing and that’s how my search led me to social media. I decided to limit myself to Instagram because I understand the app better.

As I kept browsing through pictures I realized that most of the trends that were predicted to rule 2018 were not even amongst the ones I was seeing; but then again the year was just starting so maybe the trends could catch on as time goes by.  I checked more accounts and I came to the realization that most brides are not looking for fashion trends; rather they were after a well cut silhouette that will bring out distinctly the features of the body wearing it.

 It’s good to note that fashion differs for everyone and while some believe that less is more, others believe that being covered up is best. The one thing that both side seem to agree on is that whatever dress you pick must fit.  The emphasis here is on fit because no matter who designs a dress, once it doesn’t fit, then the beauty of such clothing is lost. 

The images below show beautiful dresses and only daring brides can rock like this.

It’s safe at this juncture to say that the trends we will see this year will be bold and exciting wedding dresses because a lot of brides have come to the realization that drama doesn’t really translates to statement piece rather a well fitted and nice fabric texture can bring all the statement you need.  

 I see a lot of future brides going for wedding dresses that suit them rather than following trends. 

 It is your big day, so go all out and feel like a princess.
