The latest and greatest in all things bridal wear was showcased during Chicago Bridal Market and this year, we were lucky enough to have Merrime attend! By attending fashion shows and designer sneak peeks, we gathered all of the information we need to know to stay on top of the trends for the coming year. As always, a few of those trends stood out in big ways, with several designers reflecting the styles we’re seeing in the fashion industry as a whole. Here’s what we believe to be the top 3 trends for 2018:
Sparkle & Shine
Some trends will always fizzle to the top and sparkling gowns are one of them. With soft layers of sparkle tulle or glittered fabric, as well as matte sequins and glimmering embroidery we think these delicate but glamorous looks will make the 2018 bride stand out – like a shimmering light!
Out with the old and in with the new! Wedding dresses have officially gone modern this season and geometric styles and patterns are stealing the spotlight. Undeniably edgy and fresh, geometrics can be seen everywhere at the moment—from the perfect dress to the proper décor.
Shades of Blue
We’ve seen the colored gowns in years past, and even strong floral patterns to set brides apart but the gowns this year are headed for bluish tones. The saying “something blue” can be easily scratched off the list with this new trend!
