We’re currently in Fall 2011, Spring 2012 just showed and it’s Fall 2012 time for Bridal. Does that make sense? No? Too bad.

Fall 2012 bridal had some surprises: though there’s always a few looks with a high hemline, a few weird silhouettes and techno fabrics, this season there were also more than a few jet black wedding dresses. …That being said, there was a whole lot of lace and mermaid gowns and cap sleeves, too. Here’s our picks for the best of them, from heavyweights like Vera Wang, Monique Lhuillier, Oscar de la Renta, Carolina Herrera and more.
