With Labor Day fast approaching, the unofficial start of fall is almost here. We’re starting to transition from thinking of summery beachside weddings to more rustic fall weddings. With her relaxed yet fashionable style, Lela Rose’s wedding dress collection features a variety of gowns that would suit a more laid-back fall wedding at a farm, orchard, or vineyard. Two of our favorite styles are above; check out the rest of the new Lela Rose wedding gowns here, and let us know what you think in the comments!

And the Winners Are…

After weeks of voting, we’re finally ready to announce your pick for the hottest trends in wedding dresses and bridesmaid styles. So, without further ado, the envelope please. And the winners are…

…the illusion back wedding gown by Lela Rose (style name: Union Square) and the black lace bridesmaid dress by Noir by Lazaro (Style 3278)!

While we’re not sure that these styles would work well together at the same wedding – the Lela Rose feels a little more low-key but modern, the Lazaro a tad bit more formal (definitely a city ballroom wedding style) – we think the dresses do have a few things in common. Both are feminine and have just the right amount of sex appeal. And both feature pretty fantastic backs!

What do you think? Do you agree with the winners? Let us know in the comments! And we’ll see you next season for another dress poll!

And now, the moment you’ve all been waiting for: It’s time for our wedding dress trend finals! Since there was a near-tie in the second round of the semifinals, you’ll have three gowns to choose from. And just to be fair, we’re showing both the front and back of each gown. You’ll until Monday evening to vote, and we’ll announce the winner on Tuesday!

So here they are, selected by you, the readers: our three esteemed finalists!

Over the past few weeks, we’ve asked you to vote for your favorite new trends from the most recent Bridal Market. And hundreds of you made your opinions known – so thank you! Now, we want to take things a step further, and ask you to choose the ultimate wedding dress trend of 2012! We’ve compiled the winners of each poll, and want you to vote for your favorite trend of them all, the style you would actually wear to your own wedding. Here’s the first crop of semifinalists:

For the next week, we’re going to be asking you to choose your favorite trends from the most recent Bridal Market. In our first poll, we asked you to pick your favorite new wedding dress color – and it looks like pink (exemplified by a gown by Maggie Sottero) won out by a landslide, defeating blue and red.

Today, we’re asking you to think about a gown’s back view. This season, perhaps more than ever before, we saw designers focusing just as much on the a gown’s back as on its front. We want to know which of these unique back styles you like the most.
