Best Dressed: Our Favorite Gowns from Bridal Fashion Week, Part II

Happy Monday!

Last week we featured some of our favorite new frocks from October’s Bridal Fashion Week, and today we’re sharing part two of our top dress picks. Without further ado, feast your eyes on these new, swoon-worthy bridal fashions…

A high lace neckline and above-the-knee hemline make this LWD by Marchesa a bridal knockout.

We love the sparlkly, silver straps criss-crossed under the bustline on this Monique Lhuillier dress. Added bonus: the frock features a sexy open back!

What’s not to love about this fitted, beaded dress with delicate cap sleeves by Reem Acra? This dress will have you shimmying down the aisle.

Would you wear a black wedding gown? Vera Wang thinks so. (And for the record, we SO would). Indulge your inner black swan in a beautifully draped tulle and lace dress with a dramatic mermaid skirt.

We’re crazy for capes and capelets (a trend featured in many of the new bridal collections), like this romatic lace capelet by Pronovias.

Have great gams? Don’t be afraid to show a little leg on your wedding day–front-slit gowns, like this sexy number by Ines Di Santo, were a big hit during Bridal Fashion Week. Could thighs be the new cleavage?

We’ve long had a love affair with blush-hued bridal gowns. Rivini kicked their colored frocks up a notch, presenting this pinky-purpley ruffled dress that reminds us of raspberries and cream.

Finally, it was love at first sight when we laid our eyes on this silvery, brocade ballgown by Modern Trousseau. We adore the regal fabric and the traditional silhouette, but our favorite detail are the pockets!

You’ve seen our favorite gowns from Bridal Fashion Week, what were yours? Which new dresses are you obsessing over?

2 Comments on “Dress of the Week: Monique Lhuillier’s “Catherine” Lace Wedding Gown with Sleeves

  1. What a great article! I found it googling “Catherine Monique Lhuillier.” Did you happen to keep this dress from the shoot? I’m getting married in two months and it’s absolutely perfect, but I haven’t been able to find it anywhere 🙁

    • Sara, glad you were able to find the dress on our site! Sadly, we had to return the sample dress after our shoot. (Parting is such sweet sorrow.)

      You might try contacting Alta Moda Bridal in SLC—they carry Monique Lhuillier and could help you find a similar style.

      Good luck!
