In April we walked you through Bridal Fashion Week on Instagram and together we experienced a mix of emotions we haven't felt since watching the first Sex and the City movie. Among our favorite dresses were creations by a couture house that's been our frontrunner for years, Galia Lahav - there was a more subtle sexiness to this collection than the typically provocative pieces we've seen from them in the past. Ines di Santo was another favorite, with fairy tale silhouettes and layers of delicate draping. If there's one thing brides-to-be should be paying attention to, it's dreamy, detailed, and uber feminine designs featuring all the extra beading, appliques, and embroidery your heart could possibly desire. Meghan Markle may have gone the simple route for her princess moment, but where's the fun in that?
