From Marchesa to Carolina Herrera and Houghton Bride to Ines Di Santo, this season's wedding dresses are so beautiful we just can't get enough. Crop tops, pearls, plunging necklines, delicate off-the-shoulder gowns--the styles run from the dramatic to demure--not to mention the alluringly boho, like Elizabeth Stuart's sophisticated crop top. Take a peek at some of our favorite's from this season's runway.

The soft ivory lace gown sports a high waist, low neckline and long sleeves. Top with a tulle veil to turn up the romance. $6,990, from the Carolina Herrera Boutique.

Corded lace detailing adds timeless texture while a whimsical tulle skirt ensures an elegant entrance. Pair with tousled tresses to achieve an effortless look. $4,995, from Saks Fifth Avenue.

The detachable ostrich-feather skirt makes an edgy statement and offers versatility long after the big day. This style is ideal for petites and brides who want to show some leg. $2,596, from Saks Fifth Avenue.
