The top 10 finalists in the competition for America's most beautiful wedding gown!

In February 2009, the editors of BRIDES magazine invited fashionistas and newbie designers alike to create a dress that embodied the theme of "visionary romance." No surprise, we received hundreds of amazing sketches. You voted to select the semi-finalists—take a look at who made the cut.

Congratulations to our first-ever BRIDES Operation Dream Dress contest winner, Amy Wong Micucci! Check out the November/December 2009 issue of BRIDES to see Amy’s dress on the cover.
