Fashion Week Report, Part Two: Bling Zone

Brides, proceed with caution: You are about to enter the Bling Zone. Crystallized by Swarovski has been spreading their twinkly fairy dust on just about everything that moves. Reem Acra's spectacular collection this morning was jeweled to the hilt, but in the most magical and unexpected ways, channeling princesses and mythical maidens. The Platinum collection glittered from top to toe with clear and topaz crystals. Priscilla of Boston adorned dresses with oversized bows in solid crystal and St. Pucchi's gowns positively glowed.

But you don't have to go crystal-crazy—I saw so many dresses and accessories with just a gentle touch of sparkle. Try a veil dotted with diamante or encircle your waist with a rhinestone-encrusted sash. If that still feels too blingy, then just flash that big ol' diamond rock on your finger!—Juli Alvarez, Fashion Editor
