1. Lace Trumpet + Cap Sleeves ($950): This drop waist, sleeveless trumpet is simply gorgeous. Pair this one with a long lace veil for a subtly romantic look.
3. Dreamy Flutter Sleeves ($250): This lovely number would look stunning with loose curls for a casual summer wedding on a beach. Just imagine the sun setting behind you as the wind blows the fluttery sleeves of your gown. *sigh*
4. Beaded + Lace-Up ($600): This ballgown looks expensive without breaking the bank. The lace-up corset detail in the back is also a nice touch.
