If the latest batch of dresses from the Fall 2012 Couture runways are any indication—as they often are—of fashion trends to come, then expect to see plenty of ruffle wedding dresses next season. Italian couturier Giambattista Valli sent ruffled skirts, trims, and necklines cut from swirling layers of raw-edged organza down his runway, some in soft, heavenly hues and others in richly saturated floral motifs. Ahead of the curve, this taffeta wedding dress with halter neckline from Wtoo offers the effortlessly chic combo of a graphic, girly neckline and an otherwise simple silhouette—an ideal option for a whimsical garden wedding.
