Would you wear these wedding gowns down the aisle?

Forget everything you thought you knew about wedding gowns as a little girl—this season’s Bridal Fashion Week has spoken: the Fall 2018 runways are all about breaking the rules! While we’re perpetually besotted by clean lines and classic silhouettes brought to us by the latest collections of Reem Acra, Anne Barge, and Carolina Herrera (“I think the old-fashioned in bridal is very important,” the latter tells Vogue—and we totes agree!), fun twists and game-changers are always welcome.

Below, we list down the runway-approved bridal trends that might finally convince you to step outside your comfort zone while you’re on your merry way down the aisle!

1. Moto jackets? Why not!

Monique Lhuillier is making a serious case for moto jackets worn over traditional white, floor-length wedding gowns this season. No doubt designed for modern, edgy brides who don’t mind going outside the box, this third-piece trick could earn you major cool points right before you say “I do.”

2. Pants for the ladies

Who said only guys can wear the pants? Bridal Fashion Week begs to disagree! A sheer, masterfully embellished jumpsuit opened the show at Naeem Khan while a streamlined silhouette punctuated by a giant bow stole the thunder at Viktor & Rolf; there’s also that achingly chic tailored suit that Monique Lhuillier sent down the runway—in case you need more proof that these designers mean business.

3. White is not always right

Soft nudes (not whites) are this season’s most obvious choice of palette for that fairytale-worthy moment—Inbal Dror’s princess-y ball gown speckled with sequins and Swarovski crystals will sparkle even in broad daylight; Zuhair Murad’s strapless tiered frock befits any dainty-loving bride; and Elie Saab’s impeccably embroidered iteration is a masterpiece all on its own.

4. Legs out!

No one should be able to stop you if you want to flaunt those flawless gams on your big day by opting for midis or even minis. The likes of MarchesaViktor & Rolf, and several other designers from Bridal Fashion Week unanimously agree: it’s okay to go bare!

5. Dangerously sheer

Apparently, there’s no such thing as too sheer for Naeem Khan, Inbal Dror, and Zuhair Murad—not even for brides! According to the runways, skin is in. The question is, are you?
