Whether your walk down the aisle is coming up next month or some unspecified day in the future, it’s never too soon to start shopping for the perfect dress. The trick, for many brides, is wading through the vast array of options and finding a dress that expresses originality. If you’re on the market for a gown, there are four big trends to watch out for.

By showing off the collar bones, they manage to walk the fine line between sex appeal and innocence. They also offer something like the classic “princess” aesthetic, a look that combines vulnerability and confidence for a special day. The gown is the centerpiece of the entire wedding, so do your homework and find a dress that says who you are and what your marriage will be. Start shopping today at local stores, such as Allisha...
