This street style favorite is going bridal, and we have to admit we love the flirty glimpse of midriff. Houghton and Theia also featured crop top bridal looks.
4. GOLD ACCENTS

Gone are the days of silver being the only acceptable accent for brides! The glam gold made an appearance on many runways this season, and it feels luxe and modern. Sarah Jassir and Amsale also featured this metallic accent.
5. DEEP V

Necklines took a seriously sexy turn this season by dipping lower than ever before. Delphine Manivet and Ines Di Santo's designs also took the plunge.

This unusual detail really packs personality into an otherwise classic wedding gown, and we bet it'll really wow the crowd when they see the way it moves on the dance floor. This Kelly Faetanini number also makes use the detail.
7. THE FROZEN EFFECT

Between icicle-like shimmer and bundled up snow queens, the Disney movie Frozen definitely served as inspiration for many designers. The brides on Houghton's runway also featured a cozy look.

Brides are no longer limited to a dress for their bridal look. Tuck a blouse into a skirt, or opt for a well-tailored pants suit, a perfect ensemble for a same-sex wedding! Rivini also showcased a sheer pantsuit on her runway.
9. SHOWING SKIN

Don't get us wrong—we love, love, love the classic look of a floor-length wedding gown. But after rings have been exchanged and vows have been said, what bride doesn't want a dress that's a little easier to move in? We're big time advocates of a second (and shorter!) reception dress here at Project Wedding, and this sweet little Kirribilla number from Weddington Way is one of our faves right now. Add a few bits of (elegant) bling and finish off with a shiny cobalt shoe for a city chic ballroom celebration.

Statement skirts are one of our favorite ways to turn heads down the aisle. And while we're all for intricate layers of ruche and tulle, there is definitely something to be said for bigger, bolder, and simpler. One of the most creative twists on the big ball gown we saw on Spring 2014 runways was the wide panel tier. Skirt layers got larger and longer, and we think the look is just perffect for the bride who wants to look a little more playful on her big day. What's your take on the style?
