Want to know what's going to be big in bridal next year? We've rounded up the six hottest trends to grace the 2018 runways and reveal the wedding dress trends that are going to be HUGE. Who knows, Meghan Markle may even take some big day inspiration from these gorgeous looks...


Veils are set to take a backseat next year as capes takes centre stage. Whether they're long and billowy, short and chic, hooded or high-necked they are the must-have bridal accessory.

They're also a great way to add drama to your ceremony and easy ditch for dancing.

We love the texture and movement feathers add to your big day look. Opt for all over feathers (á la Berta) or just a small nod to the trend (Pronovias) for easy wedding day style




The coolest way to add a touch of haute couture to your wedding dress is definitely with black accessories. 

We have seen the gorgeous monochrome combination all across the catwalks and we love the contrast of a soft dreamy white dress with a big black bow. So chic.

Subtle sparkle

Don't worry, this look isn't about over-the-top bling, but about an ethereal touch of glitz to add some magic to your wedding dress. 

We love this look when it's paired with layers of tulle and soft Rapunzel-like hair.

Jenny Packham

Statement sleeves

The seventies trend from 2017 is still present, wth lots of bridal designers focusing on bell and bishop sleeves, which echo the vibe. 

We love the simple shaping of this Mikaella gown and the boho-style from Romantique by Claire Pettibone.

2018 will also see more brides taking the pared back approach.

With beautifully-fitted silhouettes and elegant, classic necklines, these no-fuss dresses are ridiculously beautiful and totally timeless.
