Here Come The Brides

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 love the Oscar de la Renta in the blush color. May I have one please?

    Promo bias is my favorite out of the pics, I don't like strapless for me personally.

  • flgirl1987 By flgirl1987

    I like a ball gown. Not blinged out, but made with gorgeous fabric. And definitely sleeves.

    I love the Monique Lhuillier wedding dress ; it's so elegant!!

  • tjhauser By tjhauser

    I like a sweetheart bodice with a full skirt. Add a touch of ace on the top and it's perfect.

  • ladydth By ladydth

    Princess ball gown

  • jessad By jessad

    our daughter just chose a gown similar to the Oscar de la Renta one above, it's very simple w/the fabric and in a champagne color

  • istepd By istepd

    Hmm...something that balances simple and fancy well. Definitely has to be a long dress. And I know it's not part of the dress...but I do want a veil, I think.

    I would love a high low hem because my fiance loves my feet and I love shoes. My feet will be a focal point. Fitted at the waist and lace. No bows or flower things.

  • brimom By brimom

    Bright white, mermaid silhouette, strapless, with a semi long, narrow train. And a tiara. :)

  • Ashley859 By Ashley859

    All white lace strapless princess ball gown with a sweetheart neckline

  • Boyscrangl By Boyscrangl

    I like the mary queen of scots the best out of these. Personally, I would like that without so much lace.
