The newest iterations from Reem Acra, THEIA, Robert Bullock Bride and more, cater to every style M.O. from boho to modern and subtle to look-at-me.

2. Boho Influence

We're in a bohemian rhapsody this season thanks to streamlined silhouettes and whimsical details. Bell sleeves, off-the-shoulder wisps of fabric and peekaboo lace added to the fairy woodland vibe at Love Marley by Watters, Desiree Hartsock with Maggie Sottero, Claire Pettibone and more. Complete your bridal ensemble with a floral crown.

4. Rose Gold Accents

All that glitters is rose gold! This lovely hue has long been a popular choice for engagement rings and décor details; now we're thrilled to report that it's having a moment with wedding gowns, too. We've rounded up some of our favorite styles from Casablanca Bridal, Enzoani, Pronovias and more.

5. Wedding Overskirts and Capes

For a unique alternative to a veil, consider a wow-worthy overskirt or cape from Ines Di Santo, Marchesa, Temperley London and more. Designers used them to make a dramatic statement at Bridal Fashion Week, but we think they'd also work well for brides who want to switch up their look from ceremony to reception.

9. Wedding-Worthy Fringe and Feathers

This season, Bridal Fashion Week told a tale of two textures: feathered skirts conjured images of beautiful Swan Lake ballerinas while fringe-fest necklines evoked the music festival scene. No matter which category you fall into, these looks from Jim Hjelm, Badgley Mischka Bride, Mark Zunino and more, will take you on a fashionable journey.

10. Champagne Stunners

Nude underlays were everywhere this season, from Enzoani to Legends by Romona Keveza to Inbal Dror and more. If you don't want to commit to a color but can't envision yourself in a traditional white wedding dress, strike a compromise with these stunning options.
