1. Full lace and silk vintage wedding dress
A characteristic feature of Carolina Herrera wedding dresses is the beautiful use of lace. This dress is a shining example of that kind of expertise. The entire length of the dress is replete with gorgeous lacework over ivory silk, which is enhanced because of the illusion neckline. The dress is perfectly vintage in the kind of charm it exudes, but perfectly contemporary in style.
2. Pleated silk and chiffon empire dress
This dress is perfect for the ultimate city wedding. The body of the dress is simplistic, with copious amounts of smooth silk, with an underlay of chiffon layers. The highlight of the dress, however, is the neckline, which is low-cut and gorgeous, because of the folded over, pleated edges, creating a collar-effect.
3. Exquisite dip-dyed wedding dress
The exquisite silhouette on this dress takes your breath away because of scrunched up texture of the full skirt of the dress. The layers that are exposed from underneath are dip-dyed various shades of blue and grey to create a magical effect.
4. Pale blue and white tulle and chiffon dress
The best thing about this dress is the complete lack of symmetry, which would otherwise be bothersome, but looks absolutely stunning in this context. The wrap-around style of the tulle in the top has been dip-dyed the palest of blues, while the rest of the dress is a mass of blue lace and white chiffon. The wide black belt throws the whole dress into focus.
5. Beautiful blush wedding dress
This perfectly beautiful dress comes in a delicate shade of blush, which makes it remarkable. The top is sleeveless with a deep neckline that descends to the belt, while the skirt is a mass of comfortably structured tulle, arranged in pleats.

The veil, too, is a genius addition to this already gorgeous dress.
10. Silk wedding dresses with embellishments
