Purchasing your wedding dress is probably one of the most important and most loved parts of organising a wedding for any bride-to-be. Over recent years, here at Gabbinbar Homestead, we have watched wedding fashion evolve. We have seen a mix of fashion forward brides as well as beautiful traditional brides who radiate a timeless elegance. Now that a new year has rolled-on-in, we thought we’d take a look at what wedding dress trends are hot for 2018.

1. Capes & Capelets

Nothing adds a royal touch than a cape or a capelet. We will see the addition of a cape to a beautiful wedding gown really take off in 2018. If you are planning a Winter wedding, a luxurious cape will be perfect accessory to add an elegant yet warm touch to your outfit.

2. High Necks

2018 brides will be keeping their necks covered. You will see everything from lace chokers through to ruffled high neck halters gracing the aisles this year. We think a high neck can add that touch of sophistication you are looking for.

3. Giant Bows

Bows are not going anywhere this year. In fact, they are getting bigger and bolder than ever before. We love combining a statement bow with a tailored silhouette, the result will be a classic, timeless gown with a hint of vogue.

4. Embellishment

Glamourous brides dripping with embellishment such as beads and pearls will be walking down the aisles this year. Don’t underestimate the beauty of a beaded neckline or a waistband smothered with pearls. We find many modern-day brides use embellishment to add an element of old-world glamour to their wedding gown.

5. 3D Floating Florals

In 2018 it will be all about floating florals enhancing wedding gowns. You will see an array of small to oversized flowers embroidered onto wedding gowns. Floating flowers will add texture to your gown, giving it volume and dimension in a unique way.
