I never had a definite idea of exactly what I wanted to wear on my big day but over the past year, thanks to Instagram and Pinterest, I have some great inspiration. Since I’m emotionally invested in the topic of wedding dresses and have read every “Wedding Trend” list out there for the past year, I’ve put together a list of my most favorite wedding dress trends including alluring off-the-shoulder styles and playful bows.
