halter top wedding dresses

Well, the 71st annual Golden Globes confirmed it: halter tops are back! This powerful style statement was all over the red carpet, and we love how it shows off strong, sculpted arms and shoulder muscles. It's a great option for fit, modern brides who aren't working with ample cleavage. Gowns (left to right): Theia and Mark Zunino

Spotted on: Naomi Watts, Mila Kunis, Uma Thurman, Elsa Pataky, Edie Falco, Robin Wright, Hayden Panettiere, Monica Potter


sequin wedding dresses

Calling all glamour girls! If there was ever a way to sparkle on your wedding day, a gown completely encrusted in sequins is it. Why else would major starlets use this trick when they need to stand out on the red carpet? Gowns: Theia and Karen Willis Holmes

Spotted on: Camilla Alves, Olivia Wilde  (PS -- here's 14 more sequin wedding dresses we love


ball gown wedding dresses

Let's face it: this look will never go out of style for weddings. Nor do we want it to! Swooping skirts and fitted bodices signify feminity, which is why celebs and brides alike always turn back to them. Gowns: Monique Lhuillier and Elizabeth Stuart

Spotted on: Taylor Swift, Sofia Vergara, Kaley Cuoco 


high low wedding dresses

What we were once convinced would be a short-lived trend (remember mullet skirts?) is slowly and steadily gaining more steam at major fashion events—and its seeping into bridal, too. We love this whimsical look because it's playful—and it shows off a great pair of shoes. Gowns: Reem Acra and Temperley London

Spotted on: Drew Barrymore, Sandra Bullock, Michelle Dockery, Zooey Deschanel, Aubrey Plaza, Caitlin Fitzgerald


wedding dresses with sleeves

This modern fashion statement is one of our absolute faves—never has such a simple silhouette so immediately connoted sartorial confidence. Bring the style into your wedding day for a look that's equal parts easy-going and in-command. Gowns: Dennis Basso and Hayley Paige

Seen on: Hellen Mirren, Olivia Wilde, Camilla Alves, Paula Patton, Kristen Chenoweth, Mayim Bialik, Lizzy Caplan, Alexi Ashe, Cat Sadler


beaded wedding dresses

Strategically placed lines of sparkle are a glam way to highlight curves and sparkle in photographs—which is precisely why starlets opt for this look on the red carpet. Use their strategy for yourself by trying a beaded wedding gown! Gowns: Mark Zunino and Maggie Sottero

Spotted on: Kate Beckinsale, Rita Wilson, Hellen Mirren, Elizabeth Moss, Angela Bassett, Rashida Jones, Laura Dern, Melissa Fumero, Madison Walls


gold wedding dresses

Don't want to wear white? No problem! Shine like the Golden Globe statue itself in a slightly shimmery shade of champagne. Take it from the stars we spotted on the red carpet: this shade will make you look (and feel) like a million glamorous bucks. Gowns: Romona Keveza and Austin Scarlett

Spotted on: Robin Wright, Naomi Watts, Laura Dern, Anna Gunn


off the shoulder wedding dresses

One of the most romantic wedding looks out there, and it made a major return on the Golden Globes red carpet. We love this style for a rustic country or garden wedding. Gowns: Lela Rose and Legends by Romona Keveza

Spotted on: Emma Roberts, Zoe Saldana, Megan Mullally, Melissa Rauch, Rebecca Ferguson
