Wedding Dresses

Strapless dresses are always popular with brides, but next season you'll begin seeing a twist with this classic design.

At the National Bridal Market in Chicago, we spoke with Arthur Huston, Executive Manager at House of Wu and he told us that while many designers are showing strapless wedding dresses, most of the new designs feature a soft scoop in the neckline.

The gown featured here from the Christina Wu Collection is a perfect example of this new design element. The short dip in the neckline adds to the romantic feeling of the design, and the scoop is repeated on the back. —Anne Chertoff

Wedding Wisdom: You'll never know which wedding dress style will look right on you until you try them on, so keep an open mind when you're dress shopping. Don't be afraid to try on a silhouette that you didn't imagine yourself in. Many brides envision themselves in ball gowns and end up purchasing a sexy mermaid-shaped wedding gown. And vice versa.
