Best Dressed: InStyle’s Most Popular Wedding Dresses of 2011

Yesterday, we showed off Reem Acra’s “Orchid” wedding gown, our pick for Dress of the Week. We mentioned that the dress was also included in InStyle’s list of most popular wedding dresses of 2011.

The editors at InStyle asked top bridal designers like Oscar de la Renta, Amsale, and Marchesa to spill the beans on their bestselling looks. The results ranged from dresses with lace overlays (popularized by Kate Middleton’s royal frock) to gowns with tiered skirts. Today, we have a look at some of the other dresses that topped InStyle’s list.

Oscar de la Renta
Silk taffeta gown with sweetheart neckline and tiered ruffle train

Marchesa

Lela Rose

Romona Keveza

Amsale Christos Collection

Brides, how do these styles compare to the dress you chose (or have your eye on) for your walk down the aisle?
