You don't always have to look at the bridal collections to see where bridal wear is going--these days anything that says, best dress can be considered weddingish. I made a point to go out there looking for gowns not necessarily bridal (but definitely designer) that could easily be worn by a bride on her wedding day. I found more often than not, truly stunning details along with magnificent fabrics and laces are what make brides go for.a certain dress. In other words you can echo mainstream fashion even if it means going with a bold color, texture or daring cut . . . .
