If you watched this year’s Academy Awards, and thought “Why can’t I wear that gown to my wedding?” our answer is: you can! We found wedding gown look to many of your favorite styles from the red carpet.

Amy Adams

The Best Supporting Actress nominee won raves for her gray Oscar de la Renta ballgown. We loved the lightness and whimsy of her ruffled skirt, similar to this feminine number.

Jessica Chastain

The star of Zero Dark Thirty was a big hit on the red carpet in a shimmering gold Giorgio Armani gown with Art Deco detailing. We thought this geometrically beaded wedding gown hit the same notes as Jessica’s.

Amanda Seyfried

The Les Miserables star went all-out glam in a bold Alexander McQueen gown. The keyhole neckline made a statement – just like on this dramatic bridal style.

Charlize Theron

The Oscar winner wore a Dior gown that could easily double for a wedding gown. It featured one of the hottest wedding dress trends – the peplum! We found a style with the same bold detail.

Jennifer Aniston

AMSALE bridal  dress
The engaged actress wore a clean and classic Valentino ballgown – proving that simple can still be gorgeous. This wedding gown proves that point, as well.

Jennifer Lawrence

The Best Actress winner won raves for her textured Dior gown. It’s totally wedding-worthy, and you can get the same dropped-waist ballgown look with this gown.

Anne Hathaway

While she may have won the Best Supporting Actress award, her Prada gown was not a fan favorite. However, we did think the high neckline was a great detail – and we love how it works on this wedding dress.

Naomi Watts

Naomi Watts looks stunning in a silver asymmetrical Armani Prive. If you want to go metallic for your wedding, this style is totally glam.

Salma Hayek

This star’s Alexander McQueen gown proves that you don’t have to show a lot of skin to look super-sexy.

Sandra Bullock

The Oscar winner’s Elie Saab gown mixed femininity and glamour – as does this wedding gown.


From the moment we first laid eyes on Zahabit Tshuba’s dresses, it was instant love. Her gowns are fashion-forward pieces of art that still have all those classic elements that makes a girl look good – crystal beating, sheer fabrics, lace appliques, etc.  Zahavit is proud to design wedding dresses for brides of fine taste and insists on fashion cuts and high quality materials that compliment the women’s body. She is based in Israel, – Tel Aviv to be more specific – but can ship her breath-taking gownss all over the world!

It looks like  bridal designers are taking the wedding world by storm with their sexy, yet romantic creations. What is your feeling of Zahavit’s collection?

So many designer shows, here are the top 10 gown trends that the BridalMoment editors predict for Spring/Summer 2013!

Trend 1: Jeweled Details

Jeweled Details bridal gowns
Bling is back in all its dazzling splendor. This season, we saw everything from encrusted sleeves and ornate bodices to all-over beading (with this latter option, prepare for all eyes to be transfixed on you for all 10+ hours of your wedding day). With a slinky sheath, scalloped edges or patterns—shown at Jenny Packham, Ines Di Santo and Reem Acra— it takes on a Great Gatsby-esque effect.

Trend 2: Keyhole Backs

ellis bridals darling keyhole back
Who knew that a ring of skin could be so seductive? It would be easier for us to name all of the designers that didn’t feature this ubiquitous trend than those who did—that’s how pervasive it was. Sophisticated yet versatile, most keyhole back styles were encircled with lace detailing, but the illusion effect is just as divine (more on that below).

Trend 3: Long Sleeves

Bare arms, begone: The royally-inspired cover-up look first popularized by Kate Middleton two years ago is still going strong. We’re loving both billowy and skintight versions, so please don’t make us choose. But the 2013 sleeved styles didn’t just exude Old-World charm—fresh takes like Temperley London’s tattooed version left a mark on us.

Trend 4: Lace-and-Tulle Combo

vera wang one shoulder wonder wedding dress
Chantilly lace was the go-to fabric this season. Designers such as Vera Wang, Christos and Kenneth Pool ushered us into a dreamworld with ethereal, billowing clouds of tulle anchored by vines of lace. If you’re a romantic at heart, this ballerina-beauty look is for you.

Trend 5: Coquettish Bows

tarik ediz sweet bow back wedding dress
Whether they’re on the front or the back, they add a sweet element to any bridal ensemble. The demure, miniature-sized renditions are the most wearable, but we bow down to those fashionistas who can rock the oversized version, like those shown at Badgley Mischka.

Trend 6: Cascading Peplum

amsale love the veil and cascading peplum wedding dress
Last season’s structured fit has mellowed out a bit, giving way to a looser style that is more forgiving and figure-flattering on a variety of body types. However, the payoff is still the same: Peplums whittle the waist and give boyish shapes curve appeal.

Trend 7: Illusion Neckline

christos its all an illusion at christos
This season, designers like Pnina Tornai, Ines Di Santo, Marchesa, Reem Acra and more treated us to a disappearing act. Buttons, jewels and lace detailing appeared to magically float down models’ backs and around their shoulders. This feminine look is a great option for brides marrying in spring or summer seeking lightweight coverage.

Trend 8: Golden Girls

reem acra loving the gold embroidery
Last season, red ruled the runways. This time around, gold was the hue of choice, a perfect option for second weddings or unconventional brides. Romona Keveza’s entire collection was dedicated to Bond girls (Skyfall, the hotly-anticipated 23rd James Bond Flick, is scheduled to hit theaters next month). Theia, Reem Acra, Anna Maier-Ulla Maijer and Lazaro also gave their gowns the Midas touch.

Trend 9: Bold Florals

marchesa tulip bridal dress
The newest bouquet of gown styles is less garden variety and more fantastical, with floral appliqués as big as your fist and gathered silhouettes that resemble strewn petals, like those shown at Marchesa. What better way to bring an enchanted garden theme to life? Take baby steps with a floral-embellished veil or a few well-placed buds.

Trend 10: Unadulterated Whimsy

claire pettibone wood nymph and streamers so glorious
Every bride wants to feel like a goddess on her wedding day. If Bohemian-chic fits your M.O., gowns with butterflies, metallic embroidery, scattered leaves and ombré effects will strike your fancy. Whether you chose to go barefoot like Claire Pettibone’s models is optional.

2012 bridal dress

From naughty nudes to a deep, ripe shade of peach these new hues will warm up any skin tone and transform you into the ultimate blushing bride.

2012 bridal dress

Ruffles, tiers and pleats have morphed into raw-edged, rhythmic waves of fabric.

Delight in their natural ebb and flow as they plunge to new depths of chic.

2012 bridal dress

Designers took scissors to fabric begging an answer to the question. Just how high will you go?

2012 bridal dress

Last season’s minimal-moment gives way to this season’s full-on, all-over beaded brides. Designers cover shimmering sheaths in sparkling sequins, captivating crystals and brilliant bugle beads. Shine like the star you are.

2012 bridal dress

Don’t shrug off this trend. The cape forever adds mystery, drama and romance in lace, tulle or a bold flock of feathers.

2012 bridal dress

It’s barely there, almost undetectable. Like a whisper, the fine stretchy net hugs your arms, décolleté, shoulders and back. Delicate enough to disappear, but strong enough to hold magnificent beading, embroidery and appliques. Now you see it. Now you don’t.

2012 bridal dress

Underwear as outerwear, the lingerie look heats up once again. Designers dare you to carve out your curves. Beautify your bust. Whittle your waist. A trim torso is easy with the new bodacious bodices.

2012 bridal dress

It’s time to play hide n’ seek. Neither short nor long, these dresses balance the best of both worlds.

2012 bridal dress

The new drape. Front and back, shallow or deep, the slinky cowl gives a fresh new look to necklines.

2012 bridal dress

If you’ve got em’, flaunt em’. Legs that is. Show off your gams of glory in the sharpest, shortest, chicest dresses of the season. Feathers, lace, flowers, flounces, these bridal dresses have it all. Except length, that is.

Milk in shot glasses and mini chocolate-chip cookies are the perfect way for your servers to pass the treat. I love the chocolate milk option… well, I love chocolate anything, I’m basically addicted to chocolate. But, how isn’t?
