Front Row with Anna Bridal at London Bridal Fashion Week.

White Gallery London is the most prestigious event in the bridal calendar. Luxury Bridal Designers from all over the world flock to London to debut their new collections to buyers, press and wedding professionals. It’s a time when high-end designers gather together to pave the way for new and exciting trends for 2018.

The Anna Bridal team have accumulated our favourite trends straight from the catwalk to predict what we’ll be seeing more of next season. Join us for a front row seat…

Statement Backs

Brides have been loving low-backed dresses for the past few seasons, and this year we’ve seen it go up a notch. Strong embellishment, elegant lace, beautiful buttons and even statement zips all featured on the back of some of the gowns we saw, making for some real 360 degree dresses!

Cold Shoulder

One of the edgier trends we saw at White Gallery was cutaway sleeves and off the shoulder straps. The perfect solution for brides who want a little bit of coverage over their arms but still want to look beautifully feminine on their wedding day!

Black is the new Ivory

Black accents strutted down the runway at New York Bridal Fashion Week last month at shows by the likes of Marchesa and Reem Acra, and we were delighted to see the trend come to London too. For a wearable and chic way to wear the trend on your wedding day, consider a statement black belt or ribbon!

Sparkle

You deserve to shine brightly on your wedding day and this is a trend that isn’t going anywhere! Subtly shimmery fabrics, strong all over beading and beautifully bejewelled hair accessories- however you do sparkle, you won’t go wrong.

Textured Lace

Suzanne Neville introduced us to heavier, crochet style lace with her 2017 Collection last year, and we love it’s continuation into this year’s 2018 Collections. With Pippa Middleton wearing an all over lace Giles Deacon gown for her wedding last weekend, we predict that this is a trend that won’t be going anywhere soon!

Perfectly Pleated

Designers such as Jesus Peiro have featured strong, defined pleats in their gowns for the past few collections. We were so excited to see floaty, feminine pleated skirts on the Suzanne Neville Catwalk in her Belle Epoque Collection this year- and we can’t wait to see this trend take off.

Show-stopping Trains

You deserve to look stunning from every angle on your wedding day! A dramatic train is sure to blow your congregation away- consider a long train for your ceremony and bustle it up in the evening so that you can dance the night away!
