|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.

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.
Sweet simple and sexy works here too
I like the new simple veil look that Kim K. did recently.
I would definitely wear the Pronovias gown! It is so trendy and beautiful!
I like that pronovias. Great for a pear shaped body
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 the Pronovias. Without the slit. I live a princess gown!!
I love Kate Middleton's dress the best because it is one piece that flows, more regal less Cinderalla poof.
I like the Monique Lhuillier dress best.
I love wedding dresses with a mermaid silhouette.
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.
I love the mermaid style dress
the Pronovias is my fave
