Blake Lively wears one of our favorite bridal designers, Sarah Hyland is a breath of fresh spring air with floral embroidery, and Kate Mara oozes romance in lace. Here, the red-carpet looks brides should take notice of this week.

Blake Lively at The Age of Adaline New York Premiere: The actress opted for popular bridal designer Monique Lhuillier, but she chose a non-traditional color in a fiery red leather and lace gown. Though this look is surely for the bride who wants something completely out of the box, there's no doubt all eyes will be on you. (Think about how this would look in white!) Side-swept retro-inspired waves and Lorraine Schwartz jewels provided the perfect complements to a bold and spirited ensemble.

Sarah Hyland at the See You In Valhalla Los Angeles Premiere How does one make florals modern and fun? Well, equal parts Oscar de la Renta and Sarah Hyland will do the trick. The actress stuck to the classic color combination of black and white with a floral appliqué dress from the famed designer — a great blend between a timeless palette and vibrant detailing. This is just the type of dress for a modern bride-to-be at her rehearsal dinner.

Kate Mara at the 2015 Will Rogers Pioneer of the Year Dinner: This is no typical lace LWD: a bow at the neck injected flirty femininity while sheer detailing lent a hint of sensuality to the Valentino dress. A modern edge was infused by way of metallic accessories. We love this look for an engagement party or bridal shower.
