Calling all newly minted fiancées, soon-to-be brides, and just sheer wedding eye-candy fans — the Bridal Fashion Week Spring 2018 collections are finally here. One example is the trendy off-the-shoulder top look reworked as a wedding dress. At Lela Rose, a model wore a long, crisp white gown featuring an off-the-shoulder panel made of tiny, perfect, delicate white pearls. White gowns were still the majority, but black wedding dresses seem to be back.
Randy Fenoli of TLC’s “Say Yes to the Dress” revealed his new bridal collection Thursday night. For years, Randy Fenoli has helped brides agonize over their wedding gown choices on TLC’s Say Yes to the Dress. As the fashion director of Kleinfeld Bridal, it was his on- and offscreen duty to put women in other people’s designs.
Designers, perhaps inspired by Beyoncè, Kim Kardashian, and Jennifer Lopez were big on featuring “naked dresses” for the Fall 2016 Bridal Fashion Week, but, fortunately, that’s not all we saw. Pretty in pink gowns, sparkling details, and super sized florals were a few of the other trends that canvassed the runway. Whether your date is set or if you are just thinking about getting engaged, these dresses will help to realize your vision of a picture perfect wedding.

From David’s Bridal to Vera Wang runway looks are leaving little to the imagination. “There’s always going to be the traditional bride,” explains Kleinfeld Bridal’s Fashion Director Terry Hall, “but for the most part brides today have worked hard to get their bodies in shape and they want to show it.” You know who else likes to show off their hard bodies? Is it a coincidence that “naked dresses” continue to be worn by the likes of Jennifer Lopez, Kim Kardashian, and Beyoncé?
Just think about it — wouldn’t you prefer red carpet over retirement home? Wonder by Jenny Packham — helmed by Kate Middleton’s favorite designer — will not only encompass glamorous gowns for mom, but also for brides, bridesmaids, and flower girls. Those planning a wedding will have to wait, though, until the pieces are available at davidsbridal.com and select David’s Bridal stores in February. “It is thrilling to be able to reach so many brides-to-be across the globe through our new partnership!” The Spring 2016 Collection is inspired by Belle Epoque and is intended to capture the spirit of Edwardian Society — think Downton Abbey meets the modern day red carpet — with delicate beading, flowing silhouettes, exposed backs, and geometric embellishments.“When Jenny is working on a gown, she is thinking about how the fabric is going to frame the bride’s silhouette and flatter her body,” explains Ann Acierno, Executive Vice President of Merchandising, Design and Product Development at David’s Bridal.
A look from Naeem Khan Bridal Fall 2016. Photo: @naeemkhannyc It’s October and we’re well past festival season, but if you thought we saw the last of flower crowns until the next Coachella, think again because Naeem Khan showed a collection full of ‘em for his Fall 2016 Bridal collection. Now, blooms and buds might not be what comes to mind when you think of the fall season, but that didn’t stop the fashion house from outfitting their models in intricate, Frida Kahlo-esque headgear for the occasion. We also couldn’t help but notice Kahn’s models sporting pigtails under all those flowers during his Latin-inspired showing.
Jenny Packham, one of the Duchess of Cambridge?s go-to designers?the royal wore a Packham evening gown while in New York last year and a custom daytime dress by the designer when she and Prince William introduced Prince George to the world?created over two dozen gowns inspired by "A Midsummer Night?s Dream." ?The collection is sort of magical, ethereal, and a lot of play happens in the woods, so using a lot of natural elements,? Packham tells Yahoo Style. ?We?ve got lots of flowers, feathers, real ostrich feathers, and a lot of references coming from natural things.? The dreamy dresses ranged in style and silhouette to include ball gowns, fitted sheaths, and to-the-knee styles, embellished with Packham?s trademark crystal and beading designs.
