12 Beautiful Wedding Dresses from Fall 2012 Bridal Fashion Week
All That Glitters
With sequins and beading that catch the light, a delicately scalloped skirt, and a powerful silhouette, this dress is a sophisticated spin on the one you dreamed of as a little girl.
Two words: Spanish tulle. Here, it’s sheer enough to let a little skin peek through, snug enough to showcase your shape, and full enough to whirl with you across the dance floor.
You’ll feel like royalty in this alluring column -- and not only because Duchess Catherine dazzled in a blush version at a recent gala. The fluttery sleeves, head-to-toe sheen, and silvery crystals are as majestic as it gets.
It’s the perfect combination of timeless and modern: a body-skimming sheath with a gauzy blouson overlay. If Daisy Buchanan were getting married this summer, there’s no doubt in our minds that she’d wear it -- and turn every head in East Egg.
Tiers of Joy
As fluid as a waterfall and just as dramatic, this dress’s cascade of organza and tulle was cut to pool around the body. You’ll practically float down the aisle.
Short and Sweet
We don’t know what’s more delightful, the tea-length charmer’s sheer bateau neckline or the flouncy tulle skirt that lets your favorite shoes play peekaboo. Luckily, you don’t have to choose!
Paired with a simple, striking silk taffeta dress, this barely there headpiece makes a unique statement while vowing to stand the test of time. Feathers have never looked quite so chic.
Flare for Drama
In the Deep
This gown’s shirred bodice and full, tiered skirt are undeniably gorgeous. But it’s the plunging sweetheart neckline and brilliant beading that take it to the next level.
A gasp-worthy rear view isn’t the only thing worth getting excited about. In front, the high-low hemline exposes a flash of leg -- and a lot of personality.
