They’re here! Ready to see the newest bridal collection from Val Stefani? We’re so excited to give you a sneak peek. Our new gowns will start arriving at bridal shops this December and will be ready for you to try on for a test twirl.
If words like “dramatic” and “bold” catch your attention, you’ll love some of the fall 2018 wedding trends that are emerging and the bridal collection we’ve just released.
Fall Wedding Dresses
Trends for 2018 weddings are chic and redefining tradition, according to Harper’s BAZAAR recent article. The Boho wedding craze that has swept brides off their feet for several years is evolving into a more polished look. Modern brides, get ready to showcase your bold side.
BAZAAR notes an “avant-garde aesthetic is forming, with couples eager to take more risks as they plan events that speak to their style…” When it comes to bridal fashion, BAZAAR sees a modern princess bride who struts her style in opulent details or a jaw-dropping jewel tone.
We couldn’t agree more. Our newest Val Stefani collection brings DRAMA to fall wedding dresses in 2018. Fall brides, get ready to turn heads with stunning details such as a cape, regal train or bold color.
September, October, November Wedding Dresses
There are so many reasons to love an autumn wedding. The cozy weather. The food. The colors. Autumn has a rich depth to it. September, October or November wedding dresses rich in detail and glamour are perfect for a fall wedding.
Although you can wear any gown any time of year, if we had to choose two gowns for a dramatic fall wedding based on 2018 fall wedding trends, we’d suggest Cortina and Cadenza.
Val Stefani’s Cortina, D8189, embodies a royal princess style. This illusion lace bodice wedding gown is a sweetheart ball gown, fit for a modern fairytale wedding. The lace bodice with a lacy off-the-shoulder sleeves and a cinched waist then tumbles onto the floor with layers upon layers of tulle and lace appliques into a semi-cathedral train. For an even more modern spin on a royal wedding, remove the bodice lining to reveal a hint of skin under the lace appliques.
Val Stefani’s Cadenza, D8183, is fit for a queen. Whether you embrace your strong femininity, or love Game of Thrones and Lord of the Rings, this gown commands attention. This bridal gown with a cape is a show-stopper. Glide down the aisle in this sexy sheath-like silhouette which features a stunning modern lace which spills all the way down the chapel train. Remove the regal cape for a completely different second look at your reception.
Fall Color Wedding Dresses
When you think of “fall color wedding dresses” which colors come to mind?
Black, for sure. It’s striking for the sultry colors of fall, especially for an October or Halloween wedding. A bride who wears black knows who she is and embraces her uniqueness. She has an artistic side, or simply loves the unconventional. Our Val Stefani Marina style D8191 is a sexy see-through bridal gown available in black that will “wow” your beloved and your guests. This jaw-dropping bridal gown features a dangerously deep V-neck and seductive black embroidered lace. If you’re looking for fall outdoor wedding dresses, Val Stefani’s Marina in black will be striking at the beach, in a forest or a Gothic-inspired garden.
As Pantone’s color of the year 2018, violet is a trend-setting dress choice and historically the color of royalty. With the popularity of purple this year, we just released several fall color wedding dresses in dramatic shades of purple--from lavender to violet. Fashion-forward brides will fall head over veil for Martinique, style D8194, a purple/violet wedding dress with feathers and a cape! Feel like an ethereal royal goddess as you float down the aisle in feather fringe and a beaded cape. (If you love the look but prefer white or ivory, this gown is available in those colors too.)
Both of these gowns feature show-stopping colors for autumn wedding dresses. Black and violet are also on par with the dark and moody color palettes that have been emerging in 2018. Go ahead, embrace your bold side.
Simple Fall Wedding Dresses
Love the season but prefer “simple” fall wedding dresses? If you’re a casual or shy bride, you can look beautiful on your wedding day and also feel comfortable in a dress that feels more like YOU. For a simple, yet beautiful look, we think a few new dresses from our Simply Val Stefani line may be perfect.
For modern romance, consider Ellwood (style S2012), a full A-line gown with cap sleeves and a chapel train. You’ll feel light as air in the lace bodice and dreamy tulle skirt. The unexpected keyhole back is a modern detail that puts a spin on the classic ball gown. You’ll glide effortlessly down the aisle or at your reception in this flattering A-line cut with a natural waist.
For an upscale Bohemian look, check out Ivy (style 2106), a Boho wedding dress with swag sleeves and a sophisticated lace trumpet silhouette. The off-the-shoulder swag sleeves and sweetheart neckline are romantically modern, as is the understated lace that flows over the entire gown and spills onto the chapel train. Show off your shoulders as the swag sleeves wrap around the back for support and feature a unique cut-out design.
