I can’t say I wore a particularly daring dress to my own wedding, but my grandmother was making my dress, so it was all I could do to keep her from adding sleeves and a turtleneck! But I love the sheer and faux-sheer trend in dresses lately. They allow for feminine, romantic details, without being too revealing. Well, in some cases they’re a little revealing!

Sheer wedding dresses can be a little tricky to pull off. There’s a fine line between a little daring and a little risque. A few tips to help keep you on the right side of that line. First, consider your own style. If you’re not the type to bare any skin in your regular wardrobe, baring all on your wedding day might be a shock, both for you and your guests. Second, make sure you’re comfortable in it. Remember you’re going to be moving and dancing and hugging guests, so you don’t want to be worrying about whether you’re too revealed!

Illusion necklines were reserved for ice dancers until a few years ago, and we’re so glad they’re making a come back. They allow for the beautiful and romantic look of sheer dresses without being too bare.

Let’s look at twenty of the most stunning and, in some cases, daring wedding dresses we’re loving at the moment.

Even for the most relaxo bride, weddings can be stressful. The pressure of planning an event that is attached to emotions, add some family quirks and spending a chunk of change, can unknowingly, and for some surprisingly, reveal cracks in friendships and create unnecessary dramas. To put it simply, we can go a little mental, act in ways that we probably wouldn’t in ‘real life’ especially when it comes to our nearest and dearest…. those who have been there with you through highs and lows…those who forgive you when you say something that you will later regret…I’m talking about bridesmaids.
