Planning on getting married?  Here’s a peek at what you can expect to see when you search for your dress this fall.

Trumpet Styles

The classic cut has a slim silhouette that hugs your curves and then flares out slightly at mid-thigh.

Belts

These couture sashes show up in all kinds of widths and are primarily embellished with rhinestones, crystals and pearls. And they weren’t just on fancy ball gowns, even the more laid-back short styles like from Vineyard Collection had belts.

Ruffles

Ruffles are everywhere–from the predictable places, such as at the waist or hemline, to the more interesting spots, like on necklines. Badgley Mischka Bride showed soft, romantic ones, but other designers, like Romona Keveza Couture, went for a bold and structured variety.

Above-the-Knee Dresses

Shorter wedding gowns are becoming increasingly popular. Nicknamed “reception dresses,” many brides are trading their heavier ceremony gowns for a lighter alternative. Amsale’s Little White Dress collection set the bar for this trend, but now it’s showing up in even more places; Alfred Angelo, for example, offers shorter skirts that are also budget-friendly.

Dramatic Backs

At first glance, some of the designers’ gowns seemed simple and understated-that is, until the models turned around and revealed the special attention and detail that went into the backs.
