Choosing a gown is one of the most important decisions to make during the wedding planning process. After all, you’ll be looking back on your wedding pictures for years to come, so you want to choose a gown that you are absolutely in love with. For all the trend-setting brides out there, we’ve compiled a list of the hottest wedding gown designers of 2018 to help you narrow down your search. From Berta’s daring creations to Alexandra Grecco’s modern minimalism, check out the five trendiest bridal designers this year.
Berta is undoubtedly the hottest bridal designer of the moment. Berta Baliti’s daring and downright gorgeous designs have swept the industry with excitement — and we must say, we completely adore them. The Israeli design house’s Fall/Winter 2018 collection was nothing short of breathtaking, featuring everything from intricate beading and floral appliqué to the brand’s signature plunging necklines and sheer bodices. Style 18-116 (pictured above) was one of the stand-out gowns from the collection, featuring a detachable overskirt that gives off major princess vibes.
Liz Martinez is one of the youngest bridal designers in the industry. The French-Israeli fashionista entered the game at the young of eighteen, and since then has continued to create elegant and sultry designs year after year. Most recently, Martinez launched the Lisbon 2018 Collection. “Timeless, modern,” and “elegance” are the three words she uses to describe the collection, and trust us when we say that they don’t even begin to do the jaw-dropping pieces justice. Every single gown screams European romance, adorned with lace, ruffles, and plenty of floral appliqué. We could totally imagine ourselves getting married on a terrace overlooking the Amalfi Coast in one of Liz Martinez’s stunning new pieces.
Branching into bridal in 2014, it wasn’t long until Alexandra Grecco had established a name for herself in New York City. Focused on creating “ethereal gowns for the less-traditional bride,” you can expect all sorts of wild designs. Feathers, fringe, pearls, appliqué — you name it! Each piece in her latest collection, The Magic Hour, is entirely unique. From sleek minimalism to 1920s-esque fringe skirts, beaded flutter sleeves, and even capelets, there is something for all tastes in this eclectic new collection.
Israeli designer Alon Livné comes with something of a pedigree in fashion. Having previously trained at Alexander McQueen in London and Roberto Cavalli in Florence, Livné is no stranger to couture fashion. He even has an impressive A-list client base that includes the likes of Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, and Jennifer Lopez. We’re particularly smitten with his 2018 bridal collection, which strikes the perfect balance between minimalism and romance. Half of his new gowns are all about clean lines, wedding white, and simple details, while the other half of his collection focuses on feminine textures like tulle and lace, mixed with details such as bows, floral appliqué, and corset bodices. If you’re looking to make a statement on your big day, you have to check out the 2018 collection from Livné.
Lihi Hod’s become one of the hottest designers of 2018 thanks to her impressive new collection rife with lace, bows, and tulle. Romantic and feminine, the collection is filled with everything from statement bows on the backs of gowns to on-trend, off-the-shoulder necklines, lace bustier tops, and even bridal jumpsuits. The designer behind the magic previously worked alongside John Galliano at Dior, so it’s no surprise that her chic designs are filled with Parisian-inspired romance. Whether you’re getting married on a beach in Mexico or in a piazza in Rome, we guarantee you’ll love Lihi Hod’s ethereal and delicate gowns.
