Pop of Colour

It may be the Pippa Middleton effect again but head-to-toe lace is back in a big way. Pippa looked like royalty on her wedding day in a head-to-toe lace Giles Deacon dress. Lace has always been a wedding classic but with this fresh take in 2018 it goes that one step further and adds a feminine touch from head-to-toe. Lace can come across as both conservative but also va-va-voom depending on dress shape and styling. But when you wear it head-to-toe it ups the ante to a whole new level of grandness.

We’re Bringing Sexy Back
The back of the dress is often neglected when it comes to bridal selection. But this is an area that gets a lot of attention throughout your big day; from walking down the aisle to the actual ceremony – all eyes are on (the back) of you! So why not make it a focal point?
The 2018 bridal catwalks were all about the back. From sheer detailing, lace appliques, to beading and buttons. Make sure you give your guests something to look at!

Take the Plunge
How low can you go? Deep V necks were all over the 2018 bridal catwalks – but warning, they aren’t for the faint hearted. This hot new trend is both sexy and flattering, drawing the eye down and elongating the figure. So if you dare to bare this is the perfect look for you! Just remember to keep it classy with sheer illusion paneling or addition of long sleeves for coverage.

A Work of Art
The 2018 bridal collections have been an explosion of texture – beading, appliques, feathers, you name it! One trend we are loving is for 3D floral embellishment which can transform any wedding dress into a work of art and ensures it remains fully part of the latest wedding dress trends.

The 90’s are back
Fashion is notorious for always coming back in style. And 20 years later the 90’s are back in a BIG way. And this was evident in the 2018 bridal catwalks. For a minimalist look you need to think simple aesthetics, understated yet sophisticated chic. Think clean lines and spaghetti straps. Channel your inner Kate Moss and Gwyneth Paltrow!
