With dress after dress swathed in frills, tulle, lace, texture, and the designer's signature sculptural swirl, Marchesa's spring 2011 bridal show was otherworldly. Standouts included a full ball gown made entirely of pleated origami fans, and a delicate lace number with an oversize cascading front ruffle. But not even these stunners overshadowed their frothy, poufy minidresses—they're just so good, they might even persuade you to wear an adorable shortie for both your ceremony and your reception.
