Another beautiful bridal fashion week has come to an end, and that means it's time to look back on the latest wedding dress trends to make their way down the runway! Last season's romantic 3-D floral details were still in full bloom, while plunging necklines were seen in almost every collection (get ready to bare that décolletage 2017 brides!), and big bold florals embroidered otherwise sleek minimal looks.

We were treated to a sexier bridal fashion week this season, courtesy of a plenitude of majorly plunging necklines. Deep v-neck styles were seen at almost every presentation, from Marchesa, to Oscar de la Renta, Lela Rose, and more. One thing's for sure, designers are counting 2017 brides to make bold, skin baring choices, and the result is elegantly sexy perfect for modern brides looking to make a statement.

Get ready to bare those shoulders! The off-the-shoulder trend so ubiquitously seen on the ready-to-wear runways, finally trickled its way down to the bridal world. The trend was seeing in both minimal and ornate styles. J.Mendel kept it sleek in an a-line gown with a subtly shorter front hemline and bodice cutout, while Sachin & Babi made this trend ultra romantic by adorning off-the-shoulder cuffs with softly tied bows. The trend was also seen in shades of lace at Marchesa, Reem Acra, and Christos.

Toppers were also a big hit this season, making their mark in the form of capelets, bomber jackets (particularly gorgeous in fur detailing at Oscar de la Renta), boleros, and ponchos.

Oversized bows also grabbed our attention on the runways. Carolina Herrera, Sachin & Babi and Oscar de la Renta all accented their wedding dresses with oversize bows, be it as a show-stopping back or waist detail, a romantic addition to sleeves, or even attached to jewelry.

We love when brides take a bit of a chance with color, and this season it looks like wearing Pantone's colors of the year (Rose Quartz and Serenity) is the way to break with tradition. Rose colored dresses at Mira Zwillinger, Romona Keveza, Naeem Khan, and Hayley Paige gave a romantic vibe, while Monique Lhuillier, Angel Sanchez, J.Mendel, and Jenny Packham all bet on "something blue" for the bride's walk down the aisle.

Read on to see all of the latest wedding dress trends from the Spring 2017 bridal runways!
