Wedding dresses don’t need to be conventional, boring or resemble a meringue, as we saw at New York Fashion Bridal Week. The latest trends for brides (and their lesser but still important retinues) include using more than just lace, thinking outside the box and even wearing the pants. Gasp! Perhaps you’re about to be wed and need a little outfit inspo, or you have a friend who’s sifted through far too many ugly dresses. Take a look as we walk down the aisle of wedding attire fit for a bad-ass bride in 2017/18.

Because every millennial deserves a hit of millennial pink, even at their wedding. Whether you opt for a barely there nude or dusky pink satin, this colour is romantic and still on trend.
