Fashion month continued this week in London and Milan, and the best part about the spring/summer 2015 collections continues to be the many ideas for brides! From dreamy Marchesa to minimal Osman, London's runways presented several looks that are perfect to inspire your own wedding-day style. And Milan's designers did not disappoint, showing barely-there transparency and romantic lace.
Here, we rounded up the five gowns that a bride could wear down the aisle.
Emilia Wickstead: The designer, who famously counts the Duchess of Cambridge as a fan, showed a collection full of beautiful, gently architectural shapes in soft, muted colors suited for a bridal party. We love this rose double-faced satin gown, above, at left, with a plunging neckline — a daring silhouette designed for an elegant woman.
Marchesa: This season, Keren Craig and Georgina Chapman returned to their native London to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Marchesa. In true Marchesa fashion, there were swathes of tulle, cascading floral embroidery, and plenty of illusion bodies. Our favorite is this off-the-shoulder gown, above, at right, that would delight as a wedding dress for a ceremony in an English garden.

Julien MacDonald: Julien MacDonald's body-conscious collection (with just the right amount of reserve) culminated in this stunning white gown. We love the mix of conservative and daring thanks to the the lace appliquéd sleeves and plunging neckline.
Osman: Known for inventive shapes and avant-garde details, we're fans of the fashion houses's minimal white embroidered column for an understated bride.
Alberta Ferretti: Moving to the runways of Milan, Alberta Ferretti's beautiful show was full of bridal inspiration, especially this gorgeous soft blush-transparent A-line gown with bold lace details — a style moment that is glamorous, yet entirely natural.
