One more bridal fashion week in the books means another reason to team up with Brides — Executive Director Lisa Gooder, to be exact — to brainstorm our favorite  favorite looks of the season. 

Spring 2020 abounded with a wealth of options, from Meghan Markle-inspired minimalism to full-on embellishment in a spectrum of silhouettes: gowns, slips, mini-dresses, suiting, hot pants and more. Plus, it's always a pleasure to see new, innovative designers on the scene and longtime players experimenting with fresh techniques. Of course, whittling five-plus days of shows, appointments and presentations down to 11 looks was quite a task as usual, but hey, we're here for you. So, behold: our top 11 bridal favorites for Spring 2020.

If I could do it all over again, I'd incorporate bridal shorts into my wedding wardrobe — and, more specifically, this diamanté crystal heart-embellished raw silk set from New York-based Sahroo's debut wedding collection. Yes, I'm obsessed with Founder and Creative Director Sarah Abbasi's Diana Ross-inspired silhouettes and the versatility of a caftan, scarf and shorts that I'd definitely wear again. But I really appreciate Sahroo's disruptive, as they say, direct-to-consumer model and impressively quick turnaround time for made-to-fit and handcrafted luxury bridal outfits. — Fawnia Soo Hoo

These days, brides are looking for ways to change up their look from ceremony to reception, and this dress is a great solution. The vintage-inspired beaded jacket over a simple sheath feels nostalgic in the best way. The bow tie and puffed sleeves make it perfectly on trend. — Lisa Gooder

Costarellos

I found myself really into the omnipresent Victorian influence this season. But Athens-based Costarellos infused a bit of '70s into the 19th century aesthetic with paisley patterns in Chantilly lace on a more body-skimming silhouette. — Fawnia Soo Hoo

The Monique Lhuillier collection was full of romantic touches; I particularly loved this high-low tulle embroidered dress. It felt unique and straight out of a garden, but a bit less traditional with a touch of color. — Lisa Gooder

Halfpenny London's dreamy, hand-embroidered and ribbon-accented "tabard," as founder Kate Halfpenny calls the overlay, creates a romantic gown silhouette over a minimalist slip dress — or a wide-leg jumpsuit — for the quickest of quick changes for the afterparty. (PS: I really loved the bridal jumpsuit look at the preview.) — Fawnia Soo Hoo

Danielle Frankel

Danielle Frankel's double-breasted power blazer dress is so chic. The modern sculptural curve, gives the lace fabric an updated vibe. This feels like something that is just right for an after-party, or a fashion-forward courthouse bride. — Lisa Gooder

The Pier 62 carousel in Hudson River Park was the perfect (albeit chilly) setting for Lela Rose's whimsical and ridiculously pretty strapless gown. The floaty layers of tulle, floral appliqué and delicate draping on the corset top would be a dream for an outdoor wedding. — Fawnia Soo Hoo

Carolina Herrera

Pants with trains were all over the runways this season. I especially liked Wes Gordon's take on the trend with lace sleeves and a matching detachable lace train. It takes a modern menswear-inspired look and brings it back to more classic wedding fashion. — Lisa Gooder

Viktor & Rolf

A cheeky (and literal) statement dress by Viktor & Rolf Couture probably wouldn't be the most appropriate for a wedding. But the brand's voluminously sculptural, cascading Mariage gown with tulle ruffles studded with crystals and pearls is just as gorgeously impactful and feels just subversive enough for an adventurous bride. — Fawnia Soo Hoo

Mira Zwillinger

Shorts were such a huge trend this bridal season. There's something so fun and flirty about them that I love. This look reminds me a bit of the gown Chiara Ferragni wore at her wedding that we featured on her Brides cover. The tulle skirt is detachable and the mock neck balances out the sexy bare leg. — Lisa Gooder

This feathery delight is just made to be immortalized in slo-mo Instagram content and boomerangs. — Fawnia Soo Hoo

This dress screams after party and would be fantastic on the dance floor. The fringe creates incredible movement, making this a definite showstopper.— Lisa Gooder
