The Most Buzzworthy New Wedding Gowns

Narrowing down the top dress styles is no easy feat — so this season, we turned the tables and let BG brides decide with our first-ever Readers' Choice Awards!

 

Our fashion editors posted photos live from Fall/Winter 2014 Bridal Fashion Week, and we asked Facebook and Instagram fans to vote on their favorite dress from each designer collection. Over 300 beautiful looks (and discussions) later, here are the gowns that had readers glued to their social feeds.
