#TheLIST: The Top Bridal Trends of Fall 2018

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.

This season, the bigger the ball skirt, the longer the train, the more dramatic the veil and the more stately the silhouette, the better. The most jaw-dropping gowns for Fall 2018 appeared to be the modern day alternatives to some of royal weddings’ finest, and actually made strides on delivering updated interpretations of the majestic looks today’s princess brides would be after, rather than carbon copies of dresses past. Brides next season are all about elegant doses of drama, and so it seems, appearing effortlessly opulent.
