(1) Royal Wedding Fever
Looks like we’re not the only ones suffering from royal wedding mania. Meghan Markle hasn't even walked down the aisle yet, and we're already seeing her effect on bridal fashion. From glittering tiaras, to regal styles that felt very similar to some of history’s most iconic royal brides, most of the collections we saw had something fit for a princess.

(2) Wedding Jumpsuits
Like bows, jumpsuits have become part of the bridal vernacular. Sweet pants are no longer just for courthouse weddings, with many brides opting to change into a reception outfit, and going for a chic, modern jumpsuits.

(3) Clean and Simple
This season's minimal aesthetic felt like an homage to Amsale Aberra. Clean lines, simple tailoring, and just a hint of 90s nostalgia had us falling in love with these gowns.

(4) Lavender
Pantone's color of the year may be violet, but it was all about light shades of lavender for the latest crop of wedding dresses. Pastels popped up in many collections, including Vera Wang, Jenny Packham, and Hayley Paige

(5) Mock Turtlenecks
While the naked dress still found its way into many collections, a more modest aesthetic reigned supreme at almost every collection. Mock turtlenecks were everywhere this season, from modern and sleek at Monique Lhuillier, to in full on lace at Reem Acra..


(6) Metallics
These are the days of disco as far as wedding dress designers are concerned. Metallics—so much gold and silver—ruled the runways, and are the perfect statement for a bride who's all about glitz and glamour.


(7) Regal Capes and Trains
The longer the better when it came to trains this season. Designers also continued to double down on the cape trend—princess vibes are on the rise, if you haven't heard. We loved this trend in whisper thin tulle at Anne Barge and Alexandra Grecco, and in all of its regal glory at Lela Rose.


(8) The Return of the Ball Gown
The Royal Wedding effect keeps trickling down this list of trends. After seasons of lithe sheaths, and a-line creations dominating the runways, many designers welcomed the return of the full figured ball gown. Princess brides are having quite a year.

(9) Heavy Embellishments
Designers weren't shy about covering wedding dresses in oversized, 3-d, heavy floral embellishments.
