Bridal Fashion Week's F/W 15 season was a whirlwind of lace, tulle, veils, and pettifors—with the latest round of bridal runway shows officially behind us, we wanted to get an official rundown of the best designer bridal looks shown throughout the week. We partnered with Carats & Cake founder and CEO Jess Levin to do just that!
Levin, a bona fide expert in the field whose site Carats & Cake is an incredibly valuable resource where brides and grooms go to find top-notch wedding vendors in their local areas--watched every bridal show and has selected the nine most stylish wedding looks of them all. From Oscar de la Renta to lesser-known designers like Israel-based couturier Inbal Dror, Levin shared her picks as well as why she loves each one so much.
Keep scrolling to see Levin's favorite dresses from all of Bridal Fashion Week!
Inbal Dror’s collection for F/W 15 was nothing short of regal. The off-white color and touches of gold make for a perfect, subtle departure from an all-white ensemble.
Lhuillier’s take on the more traditional mermaid shape is perfection. The corset top with the three-quarter-length lace-sleeve overlay is the right combination of sexy and demure.
The back detailing on this Oscar de la Renta dress is super elegant, and will definitely make a statement coming down the aisle.
Carolina Herrera’s F/W 15 collection was sophisticated and feminine. The exposed tulle and bow back is a fresh take on the more traditional ball gown.
The neckline, beading, belt, and exposed lace bottom all play together to make this Inbal Dror gown a stunner.
This Marchesa dress is super playful with ruffles and a shorter hemline.
The delicate beading and understated cuts make these two Vera Wang dresses stand out.
This Honor for Stone Fox Bride dress gets the crop top trend for bridal just right.
Long gowns aren’t for everybody. This Naeem Khan number is flirty and fun while still feeling bridal. It’s also a great option for a second dress.
