Why we love it: We're saying goodbye to sweetheart necklines and strapless gowns in exchange for a more prominent trend in the fashion world, and we're into that. There's something so effortless and elegant about an off-the-shoulder dress. Just take a look at Amal Clooney's dreamy wedding gown for some inspiration.

Why we love it: If you're over all the fuss surrounding your wedding day, get a laid-back, boho chic dress for the occasion. This old-school, flowing silhouette will make you feel like you're channeling your inner Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. Oh, and a little lace detail for this look is always a good idea.
