Whether you’re attending a wedding or just love looking at pretty dresses, get ready to swoon - because we’re covering the Fall Bridal Trends of 2014. The strapless look of the Brides of the aughts has given way to the Year of Romance in a return to chivalry just in time to enter our Bridal Trends Giveaway & win a $100 Pottery Barn Gift Card!


Her Serene Highness, Grace of Monaco Mary Queen of Scots Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge
designed by Helen Rose designed by Monique Lhuillier designed by Sarah Burton

The first trend on our list, Long Lace Sleeves, may be inspired by 3 Royal Brides, namely Grace Kelly (whose fashions will soon be appearing on the big screen in the biopic Grace of Monaco with Nicole Kidman in the title role), Mary Queen of Scots (whose costuming has been burning up the tv screen in the CW's REIGN, and the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton.

Ersa Atelier Winnie Couture Monique Lhuillier

The next trend is The Blushing Bride as all manner of 'think pink' dresses continue in popularity - every shade from fuchsia to peony to powder is available as evidenced by celebrity brides Jessica Biel, Reese Witherspoon, and Kaley Cuoco.  

Vera Wang Monique Lhuillier Oscar de la Renta

The last trend is Sculptural Fabrics and shapes, with the return of duchesse satin that creates a tailored look in contrast to the Boho, unstructured feeling of recent years.  

Pronovias Rosa Clara Theia

I'm always a sucker for empire-line gowns. (Which is what I wore in my wedding.) But from these, I LOVE the pink gowns. They are sweet!

I like the lacy kind with beads, all over, just a little lace maybe. Very similar to the Monique Lhuillier gown shown above. That would be the one i would choose if I was ever to get married again.

I really like the Kate Middleton dress. I like a very traditional white dress with a bit of lace but not too much.

I love Kate Middleton's dress the best because it is one piece that flows, more regal less Cinderalla poof.

The gown from Monique Lhuillier is beautiful! I believe this is from the show Regin. I love this show. Now, if I was getting married my dress would have to be that one!!!!!! Breath taking.
