Fasten your seat belts, brides! It’s time for your wedding dress trends report. We’ve poured over every dress that hit the runways this Bridal Fashion Week, and the result is 9 trends your wedding dress needs to see. Ready for the only wedding dress trends you need to know about?

If you thought Kate Middleton’s wedding dress made a mark on the bridal world, you haven’t seen the Meghan Markle effect. From Theia, to Rivini, to Monique Lhuillier, and Morilee, you could feel the royal wedding‘s influence all over this Bridal Fashion Week. Tiaras, capes, and sharp pantsuits (hello Meghan Markle’s signature style!), all gave us serious royal wedding vibes. There were also sexy plunging necklines, contrasted with modest (dare we say Victorian) high neck and long sleeve styles, and just a hint of lavender to give us a bit of color this season.

##Royal Wedding Fever Looks like we’re not the only ones suffering from royal wedding mania. Meghan Markle hasn't even walked down the aisle yet, and we're already seeing her effect on bridal fashion. From glittering tiaras, to regal styles that felt very similar to some of history’s most iconic royal brides, most of the collections we saw had something fit for a princess.

Clean and Simple

This season’s minimal aesthetic felt like an homage to Amsale Aberra. Clean lines, simple tailoring, and just a hint of 90s nostalgia had us falling in love with these gowns.

Lavender

Pantone’s color of the year may be violet, but it was all about light shades of lavender for the latest crop of wedding dresses. Pastels popped up in many collections, including Vera Wang, Jenny Packham, and Hayley Paige.

##Mock Turtlenecks While the naked dress still found its way into many collections, a more modest aesthetic reigned supreme at almost every collection. Mock turtlenecks were everywhere this season, from modern and sleek at Monique Lhuillier, to in full on lace at Reem Acra. Above: Wedding dress by Monique Lhuillier

##Regal Capes and Trains The longer the better when it came to trains this season. Designers also continued to double down on the cape trend—princess vibes are on the rise, if you haven't heard. We loved this trend in whisper thin tulle at Anne Barge and Alexandra Grecco, and in all of its regal glory at Lela Rose. Above: Wedding dress by Lela Rose

After seasons of lithe sheaths, and a-line creations dominating the runways, many designers welcomed the return of the full figured ball gown. Princess brides are having quite a year.
