For the "vintage romance"-inspired look, we chose this slim, one-shoulder Jenny Packham design for its soft cobweb feel. A touch of sparkle makes it perfect for a wedding.

When considering a "fantasy princess"-themed wedding, we immediately thought of this Ines Di Santo dress. The strapless confection, paired with a heavily beaded bodice and a full skirt, make it the epitome of a girly-girl gown.
