Trend 2. Side Seam Pockets - full skirt with pleats and a bustle - featuring silver embroidery and beading from Eden Bridal (image courtesy of Brides.com). I love the idea of pockets in a wedding dress - they are perfect for stashing away a few tissues, warming up chilly hands, or just a comfortable place to rest your hands for pictures.

Trend 3 and 4: Open Back and Lace - v-neck double satin and tatted lace floor length gown from Lela Rose
