What Britain Wears: Weddingwear 2018

Summary
Over 39% of weddingwear shoppers have bought wedding guest attire - the highest penetration of all subcategories, with outfits for the other key wedding participants; brides, grooms and bridesmaids being bought by one fifth of the shoppers.Both bridalwear and bridesmaid designs are becoming more varied with an influx of alternative shapes such as jumpsuits instead of dresses, and capes instead of veils, giving shoppers more choice.

Indeed, over 34% of brides bought a two-piece dress or outfit in 2017, indicating a shift away from the traditional dress - though some are likely to be a second outfit for an evening reception. While in men’s styles, the skinny suit has been a popular addition, and a nod to current menswear trends.
