You might not be a bride by definition, but if you fancy a nice dress and enjoy daydreaming, you're a bride by imagination—and right now, that's more than enough. Bridal fashion is truly a world of its own, and while there are hundreds of wedding dress designers worth knowing, there are a few in particular that we want to make sure you're keeping top of mind this 2018.

Besides reviewing collections post–bridal fashion week and studying up on editor-curated responses to the designers, seeing which new collections Moda Operandi stocks for its bridal trunk shows is one of our favorite ways to predict the top bridal designers of the year. Perhaps some of the names ahead have been on your radar for years while others might be extremely new to you. Either way, the exquisite bridal designers listed below are the ones we deem worth noting as we press on through 2018. Upcoming wedding or not, everyone loves gawking over pretty gowns, so enjoy yourself.
