Whether it's a ball gown or an A-line, tiers of tulle and soft lace offered volume and texture to this season's gowns.
2. Short Hemlines
This season, just about every designer sent a short dress down the runway. If you've got great gams -- and want to show them off on your wedding day -- embrace the newest high-hemline styles.
3. High Necklines
Bridal designers must have had Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn on the brain when creating their collections, seen in dresses with high necklines that are loaded with playful sophistication.
4. Sheer Overlays
Channel your inner goddess on your wedding day with a flowing overlay. From organza overskirts to layers of soft tulle, designers sent light-as-air creations down the runway.
5. Crumb-Catcher Bodices
To really stand out from the rest, choose a strapless dress with this origami-like treatment on the bodice, which is great for framing the face.
6. Embellished Belts
Dresses with sashes are everywhere, but to really define your waist and add a little sparkle, try an embellished belt.
7. One-Shoulder Gowns
The asymmetrical neckline made a comeback this season -- perfect for making an undeniably chic statement.
8. Dropped Waists
Nothing elongates the torso like a gown with a dropped waist, and designers made this a prominent style fixture on the bridal runways.
9. Trend: Twisted Fabrics
From straps to waistlines, bridal designers added interest to simple dresses with twists of fabric, proving that just a little detail can make a big statement.
10. Trumpet Skirts
Dresses that hug the body in all the right places graced the runways, with big, flared skirts and beautiful, flowing fabrics.
