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 like mermaid dresses but if I was daring enough I would pick a lace see through at the top.

    Oh my gosh, I LOVE The Mary Queen of Scots gown. If I were getting married I would buy that dress!

    I absolutely loved Kate Middleton's Alexander McQueen. I love the lace embroidery and the classic white dress. I love the classic white dress with a little volume at the ends.

    I like the Theia themed dress, something that covers my chest but not my shoulders.

    I loveeee the one above on "Mary Queen of Scotts" by Monique Lhuillier.It's STUNNING! It's a bit of a coincidence that as an 8 yr old I was a flower girl and my dress is very similar!

    I'm going to be honest I love the long sleeve dress by Helen Rose. So, elegant and pieced nicely.
