We round up the hottest and most swoon-worthy bridal looks you'll want to wear down the aisle next year.
Boho dresses are getting the luxe treatment with shimmery fabric, lustrous pearl details and dazzling embroidery - perfect for that glamorous seaside bash or a sophisticated woodland-themed party. From left: Inbal Dror Fall 2018, @annacampbellbridal/Instagram, Galia Lahav (Victoria Affinty collection) Blush pink isn't new for weddings, but for the upcoming year, we're expecting more brides to eschew white to jump on the pink bandwagon. It's not just romantic, it's flattering on most Asian skin tones, too. For the less unconventional, a barely-there pink hue or a pretty ombre effect is great for imparting a soft pop of colour to your look.

A lacy black bodice looks sexy, graphic trims give a frothy dress an edgy spin, and a black belt with long black gloves give a glittery gown an extra decadent feel. From left: Kelly Faetanini Spring 2018/Showbit, Marchesa Spring 2018 bridal/Showbit, Reem Acra Spring 2018/Showbit Structured, oversized, dainty or in a glittery trompe l'oeil design like on Reem Acra's gold stunner (left), there's no denying that bows were everywhere on the 2018 bridal runways. For the minimalist bride, architectural bows add an edgy yet feminine vibe to an otherwise simple gown.

If you're having an elegant church wedding or lavish ballroom celebration, the elaborately detailed piece from Zuhair Murad is perfect for making a statement. For a breezy boho vibe, Made With Love fashioned butterfly sleeves to look like an airy capelet.

For a more wedding-worthy touch, incorporate embroidery, laces and beading. From left: @jennypackham/Instagram, and @moniquelhuillierbride/Instagram Florals are a perennial bridal favourite and 3D appliques, and especially a top-to-toe look, are a popular trend that will continue throughout 2018 - it's not too shabby looking like a garden of blooms, too. Delicate, wispy petals evoke ethereal charm, while bigger blooms will have you making a bold statement.
