High-end bridal design house Badgley Mischka firmly have their finger on the fashion pulse for what’s hot and what’s not in 2018. They share with us a few of their top predictions for what brides will be swooning over in 2018.

Bridal Separates

Separates are the bridal trend everyone is talking about! In 2018 it’s not just about mixing and matching the perfect bodice and skirt – it’s about accessorising your wedding dress with a stylish topper or cape to take your bridal look from day to night. For those brides who can’t decide on just one style of wedding dress, a detachable skirt that can be removed for the wedding reception is the answer to all of your fashion wows!

Beaded Lace Appliqué

For 2018, Badgley Mischka foresees a return to old-school glamour with a modern twist. The vintage era is over, and brides are seeking out couture gowns made with the finest fabrics and materials available. Beaded lace appliqué adds an element of luxe to any gown while keeping the overall look elegant and soft.

Back Detail

Statement backs are still a huge trend, but for 2018 we are seeing an influx of back detail. Delicate draped beading along the back area or illusion lace detail is the perfect accessory to give your gown the wow factor from behind.

Ruffled Skirts

A cascading ruffled skirt is the go-to ballgown style for brides in 2018. Edgy and fashion forward, while retaining a feminine charm, it’s clear to see why this dramatic style of skirt is set to be a hit. If you can’t commit to a ruffled skirt for the entire day, Badgley Mischka offer a detachable, fairytale-worthy, silk and organza skirt to add some extra drama to your bridal look.

There is something so timeless about a simple, satin dress and the good news is – it suits any kind of style. Whether you choose a figure hugging mermaid gown or a princess dress; a satin skirt or bodice will look chic in your wedding photographs for the years to come.

Pewter Beading

If you prefer something more striking that delicate lace appliqué, then pewter embellishment is a great alternative. Forget other metallics, pewter is the shade of the season – and we are in love! Find pewter detailing on Badgley Mischka gowns along the train, under the bust line, and around the waist area.
