Get ready, because Alice Temperley's ultra-romantic wedding dresses have finally made the jump across the pond. The designer, who takes inspiration from vintage pieces and ancient embroidery techniques, has long been a favorite of savvy British brides in search of fairy tale frocks. Now, Americans have a chance to take part in the enchantment: the designer's gowns are available at her boutiques in New York and Los Angeles (find addresses and additional information at temperleylondon.com). For a sneak peek of her gowns, take a look at these stories from Brides and Modern Bride. —Kathryn Papanek
