Trend Alert: Ruffles

2017 was the year of beautiful big bows, but 2018 is all about those romantic ruffles. Wedding dresses featuring layer upon layer of cascading ruffles always look feminine, and they are the epitome of style. Ruffles are the perfect choice for a modern-day princess who wants to make a statement on her special day.

Trend Alert: Capes

Bridal capes became big news back in 2017, but it looks like this ultra-glam trend is here to stay for the next season and we could not be happier about it! Capes add an extra special touch to your aisle style and can effortlessly transform a simple gown. The best news? You can take it off for the evening, creating two gorgeous wedding looks for your big day. A bride can never have too many outfits, right?
