We like to think of Pinterest as a virtual wedding dress store, but better. Not only can you browse through and pin your favorite gowns by silhouette, designer, or style, but you can get inspiration from places you may not have considered. Whether you stumble upon an unexpectedly exciting vintage wedding dress you love, or you spot a photo of a bride with your exact body type rocking your new dream dress, it's the best jumping-off point for the great bridal gown hunt.
As with every other wedding detail, we're constantly filling our "Wedding Dresses" Pinterest board with gowns hot off the runway, real brides' big-day looks, and ideas for finding your perfect dress. We found a few of our all-time favorite pins to help you narrow down your search. Read about them below and don't forget to follow us on Pinterest for more wedding ideas of all kinds!

There's nothing like seeing how a dress looks off the rack and on a bride. This Monique Lhuillier gown has a simple mermaid silhouette, but with the bride's chic jewelry and formal, chapel-length veil, it's a match made in Old Hollywood wedding heaven. It's proof that seeing a dress in an actual setting can help you view it in a whole new light!

Bridal Fashion Week is so exciting because it gives a sneak peek at what's to come in the wedding world. Gowns like this ethereal Reem Acra are proof that dreamy, off-the-shoulder styles will be part of the next wave of bridal trends. If you're looking for a contemporary gown, then the runway shots like this one on Pinterest are just the ticket.
