Is it Time for the Ombre Wedding Trend to Retire?

Though acclaimed designers such as Nicole Miller, Monique Lhuillier and Carolina Herrera aren’t included on this list of ours, try not to be alarmed. We browsed through collection after collection of SS 2013 bridal, and it was quite difficult to narrow down our top choices to only 13. That said, we hope you fancy some, if not all, of our choices!

And the 13 best 2013 spring bridal dresses are…

While most of this dress is like a romantic, dreamy cloud, the sheer neckline and sleeves makes it edgy and modern. What a fantastically, sassy combination.
