Our brides are creating more soft and flowing wedding themes and the gowns are reflecting that trend. Soft lace, flowing chiffon and crepe are the fabrics of choice that we see coming. As for style, we will see Mermaid still trending strong and a modified A-line.
For the bridesmaids we will continue to see blush's and lighter shades. Softer shades of blues, purples and greens are increasing in wedding plans for the next 3 years.

Suits and tuxedos in Blue, Black, Tan and Grey shades are very popular for 2018-2021 booked weddings. Our grooms prefer a more slim and ultra slim fit for the wedding party.

Beautiful cathedral and chapel length veils are the most popular accessory for our upcoming weddings! Our brides also LOVE to take a simple gown and accent it with elegant belts, sashes and straps! The more subtle the sparkle the better!
Tell me a little about Wedding Gown Preservation:
The Wedding Gown Preservation Co has been around since 1913. At Charlotte Bridal we offer the service of packaging your gown and sending it off to the Wedding Gown Preservation Company for them to 100% organically clean the gown and preserve it with up to 3 items: such as the veil, garter, gloves and so on. For more information on preservation stop on by and speak with one of our helpful associates.
