Ruffles also add a whimsical essence to the dress. When gathered in the right places, they add dimension to the bride’s frame.

To rock the trend, let your dress retain its white authenticity and play up the focus with a slim black belt or a strategically flattering ribbon.

Ornate, modern, or mesmerisingly detailed, not only do capes or capelets add more drama than a veil, they make for an impressive march down the aisle, too.
