    • Gatto Nero

      No new ground broken here, but these are all lovely, and very Carolina.

      • ballerinawithagun

        Exactly, and some have sleeves! Classy!

        • decormaven

          So happy to see sleeve options. Not everyone wants a strapless gown, no matter how many Pinterest pins to the contrary.

          • Kitten Mittons

            Never did find a dress I liked that was anything but strapless when I got married. Such a shame.

            • decormaven

              That is a shame. Not getting all hearts and flower-y about it, but that’s one day a person should wear exactly what suits her/him, not what the populace/industry dictates.

            • Kitten Mittons

              I did love my dress, but if I’d had more options, I would have chosen a slightly different style. That said, I was also not the type to go to every store in town and scour the racks. Two or three stores, aaaand done.

            • Krysta

              You and me both! I was just not that invested in what the dress was going to be to look for very look or spend very much.

            • Kitten Mittons

              *high 5*

              As long as it looked beautiful, and I liked it, then I was happy. $400. And you know where it is right now? In a box, in my mom’s basement. I am too friggin cheap to spend too much on a dress I won’t wear again.

            • suzq

              I wore my mom’s dress from 1959. Cap sleeves. Tailored to fit for $150. Boom.

            • Janet B

              Unfortunately, I wore my mom’s dress from 1960 in 1967. It was a lovely simple dress, that I would have loved to have worn for my wedding.

            • Kitten Mittons

              Love it! If I could have fit in my mom’s dress, I would have done that in a heartbeat. She was pretty tiny, though….

            • kimmeister

              Mine was $99 on the discontinued rack . . . where it probably was due to NOT being strapless. The alterations cost $200 but it was still a good deal.

            • Sarah

              I’m in the market right now. I will NOT be sleeveless. I’m pretty sure I’ve found it, but I haven’t been to one store :) That’s what the interwebs are for!

            • sleepycat

              try looking a PR winner Leanne Marshall, I think she has some one with sleeves

            • Sarah

              Thanks for the tip. I’m actually ordering mine from a site that will custom make your dress overseas on the REALLY cheap, because my budget is next-to-nonexistent.

            • The Versatile Chef

              That’s why I ended up making my own. Plus, I was too cheap to spends thousands of dollars on a dress I was only going to wear for a few hours.

            • Kitten Mittons

              Ditto Ditto.

              If we renew our vows, you can help me make my perfect dress :)

            • The Versatile Chef

              If my hubby and I renew our vows, I’m wearing the same damn dress. :-D

              (I might have to drop a couple pounds)

          • tallgirl1204

            I particularly like the tank-y dress with the small peplum and just a little frou-frou on it. Almost casual, but very elegant, and it would flatter a variety of figures. One could have sleeves added to it easily enough…

          • MasterandServant

            yes! When I was looking for dresses it was PAINFUL trying to find a non strapless dress. And I paid a pretty penny for the one I liked, too

        • yulaffin

          Yay for sleeves!

        • http://weirdinedgewise.blogspot.com ONEWEIRDWORD

          My thoughts exactly – hurrah for sleeves!

    • ScarlettHarlot

      These are all romantic without being too fussy or princess-y. I love the entire collection. I really like the variety in sleeve and strap options, too. It’s practical and accommodating to a wide range of tastes.

    • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ Alicia

      Very pretty. Some good options if you aren’t a 21 year old supermodel.

    • NMMagpie

      That shoulder detail in the next to last image is unfortunate but other than that, nice.

      • Miss Ruth

        I completely concur. I wondered they were…orcas? Yin and yang symbols? Birds on a branch?

      • marlie

        And that model looks SO unhappy to be in that dress, too.

      • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ Alicia

        Ooh yes – I missed that!

    • Glam Dixie

      While I don’t love a lot of these, I do love that sleeves are making a comeback.

    • Danielle

      *grabby hands*

    • MilaXX

      Mostly “meh” about these. The only one that sort of grabs me is #7

    • Jacob Bowen

      Now I can plan my sister’s fictional wedding for the rest of the day! The earrings in the third picture are RIDICULOUS!

      • Kitten Mittons

        Uber ridiculous.

        Which dress would you pick for her?

        • Jacob Bowen

          I think she and I would both agree on 7….I know her style pretty well (I’m usually shopping assistant) and I think the cut would flatter her figure while still giving the support she needs up-top.

          • Kitten Mittons

            I like that one quite a bit. Beautiful silhouette, and I like the neckline.

    • Myra Amler

      They are ok. Guess it is nearly impossible to be innovative in bridal. I do like number 3 the best.

    • marlie

      Pretty, classy, and elegant. I like!

    • Anna

      Pretty. I like the first one and I love the idea of the third last one. My quibbles being the plunge (don’t have a problem with plunging necklines per se, but on me it would look pretty vulgar as is), the thick, drop waistband and the way the skirt gathers. But I love the thicker straps, the bodice and the detail.

    • MannahattaMamma

      so pretty but not meringue-y. yay.

    • Jaeda Laurez

      These are perfectly acceptable Main Line, meh dresses where the bride wants to look “pretty, but not interesting” in the newspaper announcement. “And the bride wore Carolina Herrera…”

      • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

        For the money you would have to lay out for a Carolina Herrera wedding dress I think you deserve more than pretty but not interesting.

    • bessann28

      They are mature, in a good way.

    • Imasewsure

      First thought… oh no, not bridal season again… second thought.. oh yes I like critiquing bridal… these are pretty…. good solid collection with no dogs

    • unbornfawn

      I love the Kate Middleton influence on some of these. Sleeves! Too many strapless and plunging necklines for my taste. As standard bridal dresses go. They are fine.

    • Sarah

      All very nice except I can’t with the bust ruffle/lace on #9. That never looks good on a dress, to me.

      • marlie

        The skirt is really, really pretty, and the bodice is totally ruined by that ruffle.

    • PeggyOC

      Chains should never be on wedding dresses. It’s just way too weird and fraught with unpleasant symbolism.

      • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

        50 Shades of ACK!!!

    • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

      Glad to see some gowns with sleeves for once. When will the strapless wedding dress trend finally take a dirt nap?

    • Sophie

      I rather like number 3. They all are very pretty (except the second to last one) but rather uninteresting. I’d love to see some colour.

    • demidaemon

      Pretty standard.

    • http://www.youtube.com/user/TheOctocornNetwork International Model

      Ah, the love starved Red Carpet.

    • MoHub

      Hooray for sleeves and straps! Not so much for v-necks cut down to the waist.

    • boweryboy

      Nothing earth shattering, groundbreaking, or distressingly trendy. Just pretty and fairly simple (as far as fashion goes) wedding gowns. I would have like to see a few dresses that veered away from the traditional virginal white, but in any case Herrera really knows how to do femininity.

    • GSMSF

      Somehow I think chains on wedding dresses give the wrong message.

    • PastryGoddess

      Sleeves AND Straps. Praise ye the lord!

      Also, the Herrera Bride will be the chicest bitch on the block

    • http://angrynerdgirl.net/ Jessi03

      Sleeves! Straps! Wonderful!

    • http://redheadedwolf.wordpress.com/ Laura Renee

      Dresses are as bland as the choice of models.

    • Raspberry2012

      I really love the first one, and that’s about it. The rest are just pretty, but not earth-shattering. Nice to see sleeves and straps again, I’m so tired of the strapless wedding gown trend!

    • Dagney

      Well, that was mailed in on Economy post.

    • Aidan B

      I’d better wash all these out of my brain before I start dress shopping! These are just too gorgeous.

    • Gloriana Reginata

      Wow, not a single dress here I would wear if it were gifted to me, and certainly not to my wedding. All dirty whites and lace lazily employed.

    • Qitkat

      I see the bridal industry has calmed down a bit, except for the sternum baring one which will send many a grandmother into clutching her pearls, these are mostly pretty but forgettable while allowing that some women really do like to cover their shoulders and avoid strapless. Not a standout in the bunch, but worthy in a twentieth century “vintage” way. Initially I didn’t even notice the chains, but that is an unfortunate metaphor modern brides would certainly wish to avoid.

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      I like. It’s a pleasure to see some bridal gowns with sleeves and less emphasis on the Tits McGee school of bridal design.

    • suzq

      “The bride wore Carolina Herrer……….zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz”

    • crash1212

      Nice to see so many lovely non-strapless options. I’m so over the strapless bridal gown.

    • formerlyAnon

      Lovely, classic, no more than mild variety but wearable variety.

      There are three of these I’d love for a bridal gown, and those plus another 4 or so that I’d have made up in color for red carpets and call my gala red carpet gowns done AND done for a season . . . if I were someone who needed gala red carpet gowns, or a bridal gown, for that matter.

    • shopgirl716

      Well, hello sleeves, I’ve missed you terribly.

    • Kirstin McAulay

      pretty, but as a more generously endowed lady – where does the bra go??

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1180174329 Elizabeth Phillips

      My favorite is the second.

    • quiltrx

      Nothing really new or exciting in the shapes or major design elements, unfortunately.
      However, I do appreciate and enjoy the variety and ‘unusualness’ of the laces/appliques on many of these.

    • yllas

      That pitiful model in the first picture! Looks like some starving trafficked 13 year old smuggled from Old Country. Kind of spoils the beauty of the gown.

      So only white women get married in CH?
