1) Classic Silhouettes
Bring on the bateau necklines and the A-line silhouette! Spring 2018 is bringing “timeless” back. Clean, polished, elegant and sophisticated are all throughout the collections. We are seeing lots of classic dresses paired with modern accents such as a plunging back and side cut-outs.
Gown We Love: Mikaella “2115”
VOWS Special Order Price: $1749
2) Black accents
Black is the new bling! Spring 2018 is upgrading the encrusted sparkle belt for a touch of black. Black gives a dramatic yet polished accent to just about any look. We first saw a boom of black in bridal roughly five years back with Vera Wang. We are very excited to welcome back this statement trend.
Gown We Love: Asa by Willowby with an added thin black ribbon around the natural waist.
VOWS Special Order Price: $1,500
3) Side Cut-Outs
We love the Spring 2018 trend of the illusion, semi-sheer side cut-out. It gives a touch of sexiness without compromising class. The cut-out also gives depth to the gown and highlights a narrow waistline.
Gown We Love: Beth by Badgley Mischka
VOWS Special Order Price: $2,200
4) Pearl Beading
Opulent pearls give depth and texture to a slinky gown. The pearl shimmer dazzles throughout the night but remains soft and elegant. This Spring 2018 trend is perfect for the bride who wants a statement beaded gown, yet wants to remain slightly understated.
Gown We Love: Style 950 by Martina Liana
