Let's get real, wedding dress trends definitely get their inspo from the ready-to-wear runways. And the RTW runways' trends trickle down from the big show: Paris Couture Fashion Week. (Never forget the cerulean speech!) The biggest names in designer fashion—think Chanel, Dior, Vuitton—show their couture collections every January and July in Paris. As is customary—and much to our delight—most designers close their show with the traditional "bride." But it's not just the final runway looks during Couture Fashion Week that showcase a bridal vibe.
Wedding dresses, and even wedding accessories like the cheeky chin-length, floral-topped veils at Chanel, were all over the Paris runways this season. We can bet that some of the trends seen here will definitely make their way to the bridal collections, and we can't wait. Demure and nostalgic were the top trends we saw, but really, we saw a lot of our favorite wedding dress trends from the most recent Bridal Fashion Week: think lots of long sleeves, ballerina-feels, high-necks, brides in pants, and capes.

We love the bolero on this "bride" at Georges Hobeika.

We love the lace and high-neck at Christian Dior.
This modern day ballerina bride at Christian Dior's accessories: tattooed mantras and a mask.
Another high-neck look at Christian Dior with just a "hint of saloon."
We predict polka-dots, seen here at Christian Dior, will be the next big trend in wedding dresses.
A classic, and slightly sexy, bride at Georges Hobeika.
Embroidery for days, and long sleeves, at Giambattista Valli.
We never say no to an ethereal bridal look, seen here at Schiaparelli.
Modern day bridal suiting at Ralph & Russo.
Brazilian blogger Camila Coelho made a major splash as she closed the Ralph & Russo show.
We couldn't love the clean lines of this caped Giambattista Valli dress more. Doesn't it look like what Gwyneth will wear for her second wedding?
Little red riding hood has nothing on this hooded bride at Schiaparelli.
We don't know what we love more, the bridal pants with an overskirt (AND THAT VEIL!!!), or Hudson Kroenig (Karl Lagerfeld's nephew) as an adorable ring bearer.
Bring on the age of the mini veil! We're totally obsessed with the flower-topped creations at Chanel, seen here on Kaia Gerber.
Another day, another cape. Christian Dior's bride topped it all off with this majestic embroidered cape.
More western wedding dress vibes at Proenza Schouler.
Another classic fairytale bride at Elie Saab, with hints of blush and plenty of metallics. For when J.Lo marries ARod? We can dream, right?
This high-low moment at Georges Chakra gets the can can treatment with plenty of ruffles.
Is this Georges Chakra number giving anyone else major Stephanie Seymour in November Rain flashbacks?
We never say to no to floral embroidery, and playing with colors when it comes to wedding dresses. Georges Hobeika makes lavender and red flowers feel bridal.
