Big, poufy princess dresses are perennial, of course. But not everyone is keen to imitate royalty on their big day. Some prefer to go the fashion-forward bridal dress route, with options that include bardot sleeves, higher hemlines, sheer panels, appliqué and a whole host of other fashion takes on the traditional wedding dress. If you're a modern bride, looking to catch eyes on the aisle for something other than the volume of your giant skirt, then this shopping gallery is for you.
