Bridal Fashion Week - our top 3 offbeat wedding dresses

Bridal Fashion Week has come and gone in the blink of an eye, but we've been keeping tabs on the trends showcased during the shows. We already showed you the fishtail gowns; now it's time for a look at the more off-beat choices for the more adventurous bride. Think midriff baring, OTT jewelry, risqué hem lengths and unusual detailing and you've got the picture!

Point to note? Two-pieces were all over the place, from Oscar de la Renta to Elizabeth Stuart and Houghton. Simone Carvalli even got in on the act with sheer illusion panels - we recommend cutting down on dairy, wheat and sugar (the usual culprits!) and getting into a Britney Spears circa 2009-style routine of stomach crunches (that's 1,200 a day according to an old MTV promo). 

The other unexpected news? Vera Wang went a little grunge, with a collection that was somewhat reminiscent of Kristen Stewart's Runaways hair - in the best way, of course (only Vera!). She debuted her 2014-2015 collection with a sleek and moody video.

If you want to go more avant-garde than cookie cutter bride for your upcoming nuptials, Bridal Fashion Week gave a host of options - including (we dare you!) a teeny tiny playsuit from Watters. Check out our top picks!
