For some serious stand-out sensation (and for something a little bit different), we showcase our favourite statement dresses for 2018…
You’re demure and quiet and understand, right? You’re not?! Well, this is the place for you! We will always love a traditional white wedding dress, pure and innocent and pretty as a picture. But today, we’re celebrating the LOUD! If you’re determined to turn some heads and bring on the drama on your big day (that’s Diva with a capital D, don’t you know…), then check out these sizzling-hot statement dresses for 2018…

This glorious statement dress combines the best from the worlds of boho and shabby-chic. The trend for decadent draping in soft fabrics and intriguing backs is set to continue into 2018; we love the mock-Tudor tapered sleeves here, the head-to-toe lace effect, and the striking ostrich-feather headdress. Wallflowers: walk away now!
A big-day cleavage encased in a sweetheart neckline always looks big-day dazzling, but the latest trend sweeping the bridal world is a sleek and polished covered-up look. Don’t underestimate its impact: this look oozes sophistication and old-school glamour. We predict this form-fitting silhouette will be the statement look of 2018.
Embellishments come in many different forms but the oversized ruffle combined with a flock of fabulous feathers is taking the bridal world by storm. We love Ruth Milliam’s interpretation here, combining texture and volume with a fishnet skirt.
Destined to be equally powerful this year is a silhouette-enhancing style in smooth satin. World-famous for their attention to detail, Enzoani update this look with off-the-shoulder cap-sleeves and intricate beading with a little sparkle and shine.
Florals and colour are bound to be big in 2018, and when combined with this season’s must-have Bardot-style neckline, the look is just sensational! Check out michelle-bridal.com for more of their stunning, statement dresses.
And now for something truly a little bit different… for a statement style that is guaranteed to be memorable (and redefining the boundaries of the phrase: ‘dare to bare’), this knockout of a dress is unlike anything we’ve ever seen before – how could we not include it in a feature on statement dresses?!
