2018 weddings are destined to be unlike anything you've seen before. On the horizon for this year are unexpected elements (hello bridal jackets) and colors that will help brides break the molds of tradition and harness their own unique sense of style. From the absence of pastels to the addition of an "edge" factor, we're ready for all this year has in store. Check out our top 5 unexpected (yet gorgeous) bridal fashion trends and some of our favorite looks that will be all the rage in 2018.

Top 5 Trends for 2018 Bridal Fashion: 

1. Dark, moody palettes
From bridesmaid dresses to wedding day decor, we'll be seeing more and more shades of ultra violet (Pantone color of the year) and midnight blues taking over. 

2. Modern gowns 
Layered chantilly lace and sleek and sexy silhouettes are setting the tone for this year's bridal gown fashion. While unexpected, contrasting edgy jackets will help brides hone in on their personal style while looking oh so bridal. 

3. Edgy, bold designs
Gone are the days of cookie cutter perfection. Asymmetrical shaped headpieces and colored gemstones will be at the top of every bride-to-be's list.

4. "Woodsy" bohemian vibes
Rustic is no more, as "woodsy" will be taking over the 2018 wedding scene. From nature inspired accessories with relaxed hairstyles (think "undone" updos and loose wavy curls) to earthy decor with wooden accents, there will be no shortage of this trend.

5. Silver & chrome 
Move over rose gold, silver & chrome are making a comeback. From engagement rings to bridal accessories, this metal tone will be incorporated into avant-garde style pieces for the 2018 bride.
