Equal parts drama and taste, illusion gowns with larger botanical lace appliques are exquisite and will walk down many an aisle in 2018.

Regal Capes

Whether the cape is heavy and calls for drama, or sheer and lightweight, we love the ethereal and grand quality of a cape.

Mid-Length Gowns

As many brides are opting for non-traditional ceremonies and receptions, or just looking to be comfortable while dancing their night away, we’re seeing more mid-length gowns appear at weddings in 2018.

Shades of Non-White

We love the continued embracing of shades in the non-white palette. Brides look majestic in shades of champagne, nude, blush, and even gold.
