Unlike the traditional long flowing wedding gowns with tails that
sweep the floor, this dress, also by Vera Wang, keeps it short and sweet.
Described as a light Ivory hand appliqué Chantilly lace mini dress
with a sheer neckline, the length of this dress is perfect if you are
looking to have fun prancing around at an outdoor garden or
beach wedding, while still retaining that graceful look at the neckline.

The sweetheart neckline has been a bridal fashion constant
in various collections by well-known designers throughout the
different seasons. Here, Vera Wang brings out a different vibe

Upon first look, this gown looks just like any typical sleeveless
A-line wedding dress with a V-neckline. But a
closer inspection would reveal its detailed and intricate
embroidered lace on the bodice. Highlighting the gentle curve
of the gown, the natural waistline helps to enhance
its overall chic appeal. The alluring V-neckline is
also set in contrast to its minimalist design.

This strapless champagne embroidered A-line wedding dress with
a sweetheart neckline by Marchesa is a Fall bridal inspiration for
brides looking to wear a different shade other than white or ivory.
The champagne tinge of the gown enhances one’s skin tone while not being
too overbearing to look at. The embroidered bodice also adds a classy
and elegant touch to the otherwise airy look of the gown.

as Carolina Herrera also brings forth a gown that is tinted with the
earthly undertones. The “Daisy” sleeveless sheath

Angel Sanchez

Angel Sanchez is a Venezuelan born New York based designer
with a background in architecture, which would explain why
his designs are largely architectural and contemporary, yet with
a feminine touch. As seen above, the sleeveless silk
ball gown wedding dress with daisy appliqués on the halter neckline
softens the edgy look of modernity with the minute woven-on
daisy flowers on the halter neckline.

This strapless organza A-line wedding dress with
embroidered flowers on tulle cape brings the best of both worlds
into one. While the cape gives the gown a whole new
dimension, the entirety of the dress still looks stunning without
it, as especially highlighted by the embroidered flowers which
adorn the whole dress.

Now this is something you do not see every day. The above
floral Jacquard A-line wedding dress with an open neckline
looks smart up front but feminine from the back due to its
embroidered back and waist. In addition, the button-down
skirt brings a completely different vibe to the skirt, making
it even more distinctive.

Another deep V-neckline wedding dress that is
certainly a head-turner. The “Morocco” floral tulle
A-line wedding dress with sheer long sleeves is a juxtaposition
of modest and sexy. The skin-baring showiness of the deep V-neckline
and bare back is offset by the sheer long sleeves that are
complemented with intricate embroidery, giving the gown a mix of
elegance and sex appeal.
