As any bride-to-be knows, finding ways to make your wedding-day look special and memorable is of the utmost importance. And ever since New York Bridal Fashion Week took place this past April, the buzz surrounding bridal capes has only gotten louder—they were all over the runways courtesy of major designers like Vera Wang, Elie Saab, and Monique Lhuillier (pictured above). We also spotted a dramatic long cape in one of Reformation's recent wedding collections, which has since sold out.
The bridal cape trend has reached a near-deafening pitch ever since Tommy Hilfiger's daughter Ally wore a sheer cape to her recent wedding. Hilfiger's hooded lace cape (designed by her dad, naturally) was floor-length and took the place of a veil. But if you'd rather just dip a toe into the trend for your big day, there are plenty of delicate, beautiful capes on the market to help you complete your dream wedding look.
