Each season bridal designers create gowns even more swoon-worthy than the last. The debut of the Spring 2018 collections at Chicago Bridal Fashion Week were no exception—think pearl details, three-dimensional florals, sheer lace trains, capes and more.
Three-dimensional florals continue to be a top trend. The appliqués add drama and wow-factor to classic styles and silhouettes. See our favorites from last season here.
Sheer lace trains
Float down the aisle in an ethereal train adorned with romantic sheer lace details.
Get the drama of a veil without the risk of messing up your wedding-day hairstyle. Wear the cape for the ceremony, and then take it off to dance the night away at your reception.
This shoulder-bearing trend is heating up on the white carpet. It is perfect for brides that want the look of a sleeve without feeling restricted.
Crystals and gemstones offer obvious wow-factor, but pearls add a more subtle, understated glamour for a sophisticated bride.
Whether you are having a conservative ceremony or just like a more covered up look, modest-necked gowns are making a chic comeback.
