These are the 2018 A-list weddings that had a hand in setting the upcoming year’s bridal trends…

How These Celebrity Weddings Have Influenced This Year's Bridal Trends

International fashion search platform Lyst collected data from the online sphere and charted last year's most influential celebrity nuptials, from #TheFerragnez to the Royal Wedding... 

Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas

Priyanka and Nick were on the list of stars who tied the knot in 2018 and there was no shortage of photo coverage. The couple and guests took to social media to share beautifully curated snaps of the numerous wedding ceremonies and receptions, which were the stuff of dreams. Priyanka wore a sheer, embroidered Ralph Lauren gown for the Christian ceremony, which had the names of her nearest and dearest hand-stitched onto the fabric. Ralph Lauren, a fashion brand without a bridal line, saw a 906-percent increase in searches for its wedding dress in a mere 24 hours.


Chiara Ferragni and Federico Leonardo Lucia

We almost felt like we were attending the lavish Ferragni and Fedez ceremony ourselves, with the social media content broadcast to their multi-million global fan base providing a play-by-play of the extravagant big day. The Italian stars didn’t hold back – the festival-style after-party boasted a bespoke amusement park and fireworks, and led the hashtag #TheFerragnez to garner an engagement that has exceeded 39 million.

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth

Wed in secret at an intimate ceremony with only the closest family and friends in attendance, the beloved couple didn't fill our Instagram feeds with adorable snaps of their big day, but instead each opted for a simple yet sweet tribute to their other half. Miley did reveal that her dress was Vivienne Westwood, leading to a 169-percent increase in searches for wedding gowns by the British designer over the next three months.


Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank

Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank’s Windsor Castle wedding was one to remember, not least since Princess Eugenie looked enchanting in a bespoke low-backed Zac Posen gown that displayed her surgery scar, seeking to do away with taboos, and received a rush of support and heartfelt responses. Searches for “backless wedding dress” saw a 200-percent rise since the elegant royal affair.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry

Arguably the most talked-about wedding of the year, Meghan Markle dazzled in a white halter-neck gown, designed by Stella McCartney, for the reception, looking like she’d stepped straight out of a fairytale. When Stella McCartney dropped a bridal collection six months later and finally gave us a way to get our hands on a bridal gown just like Meghan’s, the British designer earned a spot in the top three most-searched wedding dress designers, a position the brand still holds today.
