Day 2 of bridal fashion week was jam-packed with gorgeous wedding dresses. From Amsale's romantic minimalism, Reem Acra's sheer lace and Naeem Khan's insane embroidery, today was a total win for future brides-to-be (and us, of course). To help sort through the gown overload, BRIDES Fashion Director Elle Strauss is picking her favorite looks from the bridal runways. Here, her favorite looks from the second day of the Fall 2016 Bridal Fashion Week runways.

This flirty mini is everything. From the high-low hem to the tiered neckline and three-dimensional floral appliqués, this short dress would make just as much an entrance at your reception as it would at a small (but oh-so-stylish) ceremony.

Naeem Khan
Khan always presents a line with a strong point-of-view and this collection had a visible Spanish influence with a capital S!

The knockout look from Amsale's Fall 2016 show was actually a tea-length lace number that was so subtly impactful. With tiny spaghetti straps a deep V and a full, tea-length skirt you could just as easily wear this winner to your rehearsal dinner as you could to a backyard ceremony. Also, the red lip by makeup artist Daniel Martin was killer (as in, really really gorgeous).

Reem Acra
The use of lace in Reem Acra's show made the gowns that much more special. Especially this dress, which plays with peekaboo illusion on the skirt, making the dainty bridal standby suddenly very modern. Plus this look comes with its own diamanté headphones!!

Christos is a master of all things light and airy and the delicate lace on this boudoir-inspired silk makes this gown float effortlessly down the runway (and, eventually, down the aisle!).
