OMG…they’re here—and they’re fabulous. Designers like Allure Bridals, Maggie Sottero, and Mori Lee have created some on-trend—dare I say it?—progressive
styles that are showing off the latest wedding dresses for 2019. Some 2018 trends will stay, and some have just begun to make their debut. Not all will enter mainstream bridal fashion (crop tops and capes are a bit bold), but those that have are making an impact. These unique new details are appearing on the latest 2018 wedding dresses—and they’re incredible
I’ve chosen 21—can’t believe I narrowed them down—to show off. I’ll point out their unique attributes and such, but mostly just rant and rave. I’ll just admit that now. Alright, ladies! Here are the newest bridal gowns available...could one of them be the
one? Let’s find out.
21 of the Latest Wedding Dresses We Love:
From Allure comes another collection of unique, trend-setting looks:
On the top we have C507, a fit-and-flare with a lot of flair. The embroidered bodice is crazy-detailed, so much so it can be seen from a distance (win!), and the skirt is a definite wow factor. I’ve noticed that wave details are starting to make an appearance on recent wedding dresses, via both patterns and shape. I think we know where Allure used them here! I also love how easy this gown would be to accessorize. Try an elegant chain for a simple complement, or go bold with a large statement necklace. Next is 9260, a long-sleeved, lace fit-and-flare. Full sleeves are still ‘in,’ and I’m stoked about it. They’re so dang elegant, don’t you think? The V-neckline will flatter a lot of busts, and the illusion keyhole is a unique touch. Keyhole tops are going to be popping up everywhere. As for the back…c’mon. It reminds me of the Bella Swan dress a bit, with the illusion fabric, delicate buttons, and chic lace design.
2859 features a structured, lace bodice and flattering sweetheart neckline. This gown is very “Allure” if you know them well. Made from beautiful english net, it features an extremely figure flaunting design. So much detail was put into this design and we absolutely love it!
I had to show you the back of 9573—it makes the dress. The halter is chic for 2018, but the illusion on this one is unique. The double straps with the open back give it that elegant yet frisky look. If you’re an easy-breezy bride searching for elegance and comfort, but still want that hint of scandal, this gown will appeal to you. And the beaded bodice saves you time on choosing accessories to match because it's already so glamorous. I think this gown will be a hit… What do you think? Maggie Sottero proves it’s all in the details:
I mean, look at Annabella on the top. Stunning illusion jewel neckline over the sweetheart neckline with an A-line silhouette. I’m obsessing over the details! The supportive sleeves and illusion back? Not to mention the fitted natural waistline with a gorgeous thin beaded sash. You’ll look beautiful from every angle.
Oh Maggie... you continue to wow. Maine (top) shows off the 3D effect many of the newest bridal gowns are achieving. Details, once simple appliqués or stitching, are now literally popping off the fabric. You can see fabric floral accents scattered about the bodice and skirt, a soft contrast to the intricate beading. The sweetheart neckline accented with off-the-shoulder straps give it a little extra flare. And don’t forget the ballgown silhouette that's so flattering! Another one that really caught my eye is Stephanie (bottom). Again, it has the gorgeous sweetheart neckline with the off-the-shoulder straps, but this one is made with tulle and lace that makes it look so elegant. The detail on this gown is just... wow. Thank you Maggie. Sottero and Midgley make a statement:
Bradford Rose is definitely for the more scandalous bride, but it is still absolutely stunning. It has a plunging illusion v-neckline but has tapered straps for support. Whats different about this dress is the almost see-through lace on the sides! The illusion lace side insets give this gown a friskier look but lace on this gown makes it so much more elegant. These lace features combined with the peek of skin on the side give it a flirtatious look while the, sheath silhouette gives off a vintage, old Hollywood vibe. And check out the details on the back! If this dress doesn't make a statement, I don't know what does.
Then there’s Ariya (top), even more of a statement than Bradford Rose. This one while definitely make everyone's jaw drop. Okay, I'm just gonna say it. LOOK AT THAT SKIRT. This cascading skirt makes quite the statement but is accented with the beautiful lace bodice and sheer illusion neckline. If your personality embodies romance and femininity, you may have just found the one
. If you're looking for something a bit simpler that doesn't make as much of a statement, check out Kingsley. Definitely still makes a statement, but the strapless illusion neckline and detailed lace design makes it a little less overwhelming because of its delicate touch. And check out those subtle bell sleeves! Just amazing. Mori Lee impresses me yet again:
I’ve always been a huge fan of Mori Lee bridal gowns. They’re unique without being over the top. This designer has fantastic design skills, always focusing on one or two details so everything remains sleek. Take Laurie, for example. It features an alluring satin ballgown silhouette and is accented with a frosted venice lace bodice. This sleeveless gown with a deep v-neck is simple, timeless and sophisticated with an added princess charm.
Lexi (top) focuses on texture. The full skirt has a simple shape, but the fabric choice makes it stand apart. The sweetheart neckline with skinny spaghetti straps helps with the support, don’t worry, the back is nice and low to show off some of that glowing skin. The chapel train with scattered lace appliques really gives this dress the finishing touch! Another one of my favorites is Lourde (bottom). The sweetheart neckline is accented with the english net halter overlay that just slightly covers the back but still shows some skin and is filled with crystal beading and embroidery. It all flows into a natural waistline with an exquisite chiffon skirt to top it off. Mon Cheri loves modern:
The Enchanting by Mon Cheri Fall 2018 collection is designed for the modern bride and made up of mostly v-neck and sweetheart necklines. 218162 (top), for example, will make sure you feel confident. The luxe tool, satin, and lace fabrication and strapless sweetheart neckline are just the tip of the iceberg for this gown. The bodice comes together with a scoop back satin belt at the waistline and a full tulle skirt with schiffli lace appliques. Let's not forget the lace-up bodice that’s ideal for anyone nervous about alterations. It’ll give you some wiggle room in case you fluctuate at all after the final fitting. 218169 (bottom) lacks no glam and is different from any dress I've ever seen! This A-line silhouette is topped off with a plunging v-neckline and lace long sleeves. If the complete open back and silhouette makes you nervous, don’t worry. The bandeau strap adds a bit of comfort and the skirt will highlight your stunning curves while gently flaring out into the sweeping train. This shape along with the details throughout the gown will make sure you feel confident and comfortable all night long.
Okay, I love 218180. It's another gown that is so unique. The lace on this fit-and-flare is gorgeous, especially as it trickles off the bodice onto the very top of the skirt and train. The high halter neckline will draw eyes upward away from waist, and support the girls as you dance the night away. The back is beautiful, too! It has an embellished T-cut back that matches the front beading. And take a look at that full-length slim crepe skirt that completes the look with a breathtaking sweep-style train. This “simple” style is timeless and easy to accessorize.
My top pick from the latest wedding dresses:
This design caught my eye immediately and I had to show it off. I mean, I’d definitely wear this on my own big day! Mori Lee has designed a soft, feminine ballgown silhouette design that looks like something straight out of a fairytale, but not too over the top. The sweeheart neckline comes with spaghetti straps for support. This gown entails a crisscross pleated bodice that all comes together with a beaded belt around the waist. This gown would look absolutely stunning on any bride! I'm in awe. Okay, so I didn’t exactly “narrow it down.” It was just too hard! The new fall collections are impressive. What looks did I miss?
