#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.

From layered skirts to full-scale poofs, girls who opt for a voluminous skirt should aim to go big or go home.
