While last season's bridal runways were full of outside-the-box ideas for brides, this season calls for a return back to tradition. For Fall 2018, gowns feature bigger ball skirts than ever, the sexy bride has hung up her hat in favor of a more fashion-forward take on sheer and sensuality, and the overtly edgy girl is a bit more cool and confident—without the need for added angst. Long-awaited minimalism is on the rise for an industry often ridden with over-embellishment, and while laces are going nowhere, there are now an array of alternatives to its vintage appeal. We combed the season's runways for what brides-to-be should be shopping for as they plan for Fall 2018 walks down the aisle. Here, the bridal trends you'll be shopping for next season's weddings.

Sparkle, shine and metallics are no stranger to the bridal space, but designers have long strayed from dabbling in shades of grey, most likely in fear of looking drab. With silver on the rise in ready-to-wear for Fall 2017, it was no surprise to see it shimmering on the bridal runways for next season—be it in a metallic-threaded brocade, a flat sequin embroidery or subtly via a soft, gossamer grey tulle.
