Dresses were given a 1920s-glam aura, sparkling with sequins, beaded, sculpted fringe and even feathers. The designs are a departure from last season‘s more structured style of meticulously embroidered silhouettes with daring jewel-encrusted hand and ear cuffs.

Chevron and zigzag designs were featured heavily in the collection using a variety of colors and mesh paneling to let the designs stand out. Beadwork, stud work and embroidery hinted at an art-deco, geometric aesthetic, while chiffon dresses in pretty peach and slate blue colors stayed natural and feminine.

Inbal Dror Shows Regal, Romantic and Super Sexy Wedding Dresses for Fall 2015

By Libby MacCarthy

Inbal Dror has been getting a lot of attention lately, and rightly so. The Israeli designer, known for her plunging necklines and sexy form-fitting silhouettes, creates truly one-of-a-kind wedding dresses with a high level of detail.

Last season Dror brought us a collection full of delicate tattoo lace, champagne underlays and flapper-inspired fringe that had a distinctly vintage undertone. But for Fall 2015, she takes a more romantic, regal approach to her designs as seen in a long-sleeved De Calais lace sheath gown with gold hand-beading, an off-the-shoulder ball gown with hand-embroidered leather, silk thread crochet, pearls and Swarovski crystals, and a crotchet illusion top dress with two (yes TWO) daringly high slits.

The collection also includes a series of stunning mermaid styles with intricate beading and layered lacy tulle skirts, plus plenty of super pretty coverups with cream colored stones and shimmery crystals. Lacy long-sleeve dresses are beautifully constructed and are perfect for fall and winter weddings.

1. Love all around you
“You have your groom, family and closest friends surrounding you on this day—open yourself up to receive and give love.”

2. A gown that reflects your personality
“If you’re a glamour girl, you just won’t feel right wearing a simple, unadorned dress. Find a dress that feels like you.”

3. People you care about
“While there’s romance and excitement to eloping, it’s nice to share this incredible moment with the people you love.”

4. A gorgeous wedding ring
“This band of gold symbolizes your marriage—pretty powerful.”

5. The right undergarments
“Even though you can’t see them, it’s what you wear under your dress that will make the biggest difference in how you look.”

6. A little personal prayer
“It doesn’t matter what you believe in. Take a few minutes to yourself, think about the moment and feel grateful.”

7. A veil
“A bride feels most like a bride when she puts that veil on. I also love the idea that it adds a little mystique to your look.”

8. Your signature scent
“Just a whiff of it will transport you back to this happy day.”

9. Meaningful flowers
“Different blooms represent different things (roses mean love and violets represent loyalty)—choose them carefully.”

10. Personal style
“Let your personality shine through your fashion choices. If that means wearing cowboy boots instead of heels, do it.”
