The Bold Trend That’s Taken The Bridal World By Storm

Even celebs are getting in on this fierce new style...


At the beginning of October, we seen the latest bridal trends for 2018 hit the catwalks at the iconic Empire State for New York Bridal Fashion Week, and one thing’s for sure, it certainly didn’t disappoint.

With what seemed as the most daring year ever in bridal, one key trend of the week was the introduction of the RED wedding dress, (yes, that’s right!) … the fiercest new hue to hit the wedding world.

Not a trend for the shy and retiring wallflower, we seen Yolan Cris, Ines Di Santo and Jenny Packham all unveil their Scarlett gowns down the runway in an elegant and classy manor. We loved this pillar-box red dotted gown with chic satin belt from Jenny Packham…

Perfect for a cosy winter wedding, Ines Di Santo opted for a more slinky design, creating a scarlet gown that is the perfect balance between elegance and sexiness.

Real Bride

It didn’t take long for Hollywood’s elite to catch onto this trend, as we seen at the wedding of Rapper Gucci Mane and model Keyshia Ka’oir on Tuesday. Broadcast live on TV and attended by hip-hop royalty such as Diddy and Big Sean, the couple went all-out for a lavish celebration and matching red outfits.

Keyshia wore a glamorous long-sleeved red gown with embellishment and tulle skirt to their rehearsal dinner, whilst Gucci co-ordinated with his bride wearing a red and black suit with some major blingy jewels! The couple were certainly camera ready, with everything planned to perfection.  The wedding took place at the luxurious Four Seasons Hotel in Miami Florida.

We personally LOVE this new trend, and can’t wait to see more real-life brides unleash their inner romantic and opt for this daring shade. Congratulations to the newlyweds!
