Finding your perfect wedding dress is one of the most important and time consuming parts of wedding planning. When you’re searching for your dream wedding dress, you most likely already have a good idea of what style dress you want. But in addition to the style of dress, there are so many details that can be included to make your dress truly special. We’ve chosen 15 wedding dress details that are simply gorgeous that you will fall in love with.

1. Lace

Lace has been a staple in wedding fashion since the early Renaissance era, and its delicate and romantic nature makes it a timeless material. Its versatility makes it easily incorporated into any aspect of your wedding dress and can be as modest or as sexy as you want.

5. Hint of color

One of 2014’s hottest wedding dress trends is breaking away from the traditional white gown and adding a splash of color. Whether you embrace the trend full-on with a bright pink dress or choose to ease into the trend with a pastel ombre gown, adding a hint of color to your wedding day look is a fun twist on the traditional wedding dress.
