Inspired by the delicate petals of a flower, Monique Lhuillier's newest bridal collection is definitely not for shrinking violets. With whimsical flourishes such as tiered ruffles, ladylike lace, and organza petals, these dresses are for the bride who wants to indulge her girly, feminine side. An extravagant wedding would be the perfect venue to show off one of our favorites: a crystal-embellished trumpet gown, splashed with a sweet lavender sash that's cinched at the waist. And for the bride planning to make a costume change to tear up the dance floor at the reception, the mini number is irresistible.
