Striking Gowns by Tony Ward Couture


Tony Ward Couture is best-known for his haute couture gowns that have been seen on everyone from Giuliana Rancic to Brooke Burke and Kelly Osbourne. But his bridal line has the best of a haute couture dress (read: intricate details and amazing craftsmanship), with the added benefit of it being at more accessible price point. We can't get over the spectacular details on his gowns -- like the beaded illusion back on the middle gown and the fact that there are around 400 hand-sewn flowers on the dress to the right. Gorgeous!

Princess Gowns from Katerina Bocci


When we stopped by Katerina Bocci's booth at Couture Show, she told us about how she designs all her dresses with the bride in mind. She believes all brides should feel like princesses -- and you can definitely see that in her gowns. They're full, beautiful and incredibly detailed. The dress in the middle and on the right used around 35 yards of tulle to make!

UK Designer Ian Stuart Debuts in the US!


When we got word that UK Bridal Designer of the Year in 2010, Ian Stuart, was coming to the Couture Show, we were so excited! His show today was incredible. The line was full of stunning hues, beautiful necklines and striking skirts. We were loving the oversize bows, airy skirts and frothy flowers that embellished the amazing gowns. 


Golden beading and pretty blush gowns looked amazing on the runway. And the showstopping accessory? This hat -- maybe a new take on the wedding veil? We can't wait to see what else Ian Stuart has in store!

Your Something Blue at Tara LaTour


Tara LaTour has always impressed us with her imaginative ideas and amazing materials. This season was no exception. She introduced interesting necklines and mixed it up with some incredible colors for her newest bridal gowns. The best part? They're all inspired by the children's book, Where the Wild Things Are. Subtle details like mixed textures brought the story alive in her line. Plus, with a blue, or even steel blue, as she calls the middle dress, in your gown, you don't have to worry about finding a separate "something blue."

Beautiful Beading and Silhouettes by Cymbeline Paris


This Bridal Fashion week has been as exciting as they come. We stepped into this year's Couture Show and visited countless amazing designers, one of them being Cymbeline Paris! They're doing so many exciting things -- intricate beading and short silhouettes were in no shortage. We especially loved how fun some of the dresses were, like their version of a rocker chick gown, complete with a chic jacket! We couldn't have loved their line more this season!

New Disney Fairy Tale Wedding Dresses by Alfred Angelo


We're in love with the new line of Disney Fairy Tale Wedding Dresses by Alfred Angelo. We love that each gown is inspired and designed for each different Disney princess. Above the first gown is inspired by Snow White, the second for Cinderella and the third for Belle from Beauty and the Beast



The first is for Ariel -- which you could probably tell because of the mermaid shape, the second inspired by Jasmine and the third for Aurora from Sleeping Beauty.


Do you love this collection as much as us? Do you think the dresses represent the personalities and styles of the Disney Princesses? (Images via Allan Zepeda)

New Wedding Dresses from Oscar de la Renta, Reem Acra


We're in love with these gorgeous new gowns from Oscar de la Renta. It's the same timeless beauty and elegance that we've come to expect -- but check out that shorter skirt on the far right! Too cute!

And after the jump, new wedding dresses from Reem Acra. Bridal fashion week is officially winding down, but we like to think we've saved some of the best for last.

New Wedding Dresses from Marchesa and Judd Waddell


Marchesa always manages to exceed our expectations. This season included full skirts, barely-there illusion necklines and delicately embroidered and beaded details. Check out the photos above and below.


We also love these new dresses from Judd Waddell that have an instantly classic feel.

New Wedding Dresses from Angel Sanchez, Elizabeth Fillmore and Badgley Mischka


We love the feminine, yet sophisticated appeal of Angel Sanchez. This season was both structured and soft, with pink accents on some of the gowns. Check out the line above and in the two rows below.



These new wedding dresses from Badgley Mischka are to die for! Check out those pretty gold creations (didn't we tell you gold was the new blush?), sculptural silhouettes and bespoke tailoring -- all of the hallmarks of a classic Badgley bride.



Elizabeth Fillmore is always known for her gauzy, ethereal designs and this year the dresses look positively goddess-like. We love the delicate lace and and gorgeous silhouettes. Check them out below.

Sexy Gowns from La Femme and Pretty Wedding Dresses from Anjolique


We love Anjolique for their flirty, figure-flattering designs; brides love Anjolique for their totally affordable price points. This season, the wedding dress company offered up full tulle skirts, lace applique trumpet style gowns and slim fitting sheath gowns too. We especially love the gown in the middle photo with the crystal detailing at the bodice. (more after the jump!)


And if the dresses above, from La Femme, look like they've got a familiar style, it's probably because these guys are the official designers for Dancing with the Stars. So what does that mean for you? A sexy silhouette that's sure to sparkle and move on the dance floor. We love the matte sequins in the strapless gold dress (above left). It's got just the right amount of sparkle without feeling gaudy.
