The top 11 trends for next year are timeless — and surprisingly trendy.
Designers are showing their fall 2013 bridal collections now, and while we've seen some pretty crazy things for brides in years past--black gowns, belly shirts, and pants come to mind--this season there seems to be a turn towards the traditional princess gown. Go big or go home, brides!
Many modern brides walk the line these days of wanting to maintain some tradition in their weddings while also highlighting their individuality. For sartorial risk takers, bridal designers have plenty of options for brides who want something besides the usual full skirted ivory gown with a sweetheart neckline (not that there's anything wrong with that, of course.) Rules are falling by the wayside: bright color, interesting hemlines, and even pants (and a crop top!) walked down the aisle runway for spring 2013. Click through to see the most unconventional wedding gowns we've spied this bridal season.
