It's easy to tell if you're a romantic--you tend to swoon over ball gowns, full skirts with trains and love either a nipped in waist or corseted bodice.  Lace, organza, tulle and chiffon with layers of netting are your fave fabrics.  For those of you planning grand entrances, check out these designers spinning dreams and storybook images--this post is dedicated to you 
Above: Layered tulle Bridal skirt is  thousands of layers of soft bridal tulle, a signature " Bonzie " piece. Pair this up with a corset to get this Steampunk meets Victoriana look . . .
Below: Gown by Caroline Calvert of tulle with a silk Shantung underskirt 
Bodice is see through lace with a corseted back

Want to feel royal without layers of uber pouf? The Alison bridal gown is perfect.  All silk chiffon and Charmeuse, it's made out of three layers of silk fabrics and ribbons
Above: By Rowanjoy, bodice and neck interest create vintage chic. The bodice is highlighted with a gold silk and lace neck piece echoing at the waist line. A gently draped crossover skirt falls gracefully into a flowing train and has a draped mermaid skirt underneath.
Yours Truly designed this little number above out of a mix of imported laces.  It is a silk dupion and tea-dyed silk gauze strapless gown with separate petticoat lined in silk with a back insert of Chantilly lace. The gown can be worn with the front sash draped around the neckline or as a tie down the front.
Hemp, silk and tiers of ruffles make up this eco-chic stunner by Thread Head
Above: You can always count on Claire La Faye to bring on the romance in this sweep light and airy of silk chiffon and Charmeuse.  
Above: Joan Shum's A-line skirt in ruched tulle paired up with a fully boned corset.  Truly one-of-a-kind . . .
Above: Carol Hannah of Project Runway fame designed this tulle ballgown with feather drape, ivory sequined overlay and gold English net bow.
Pure Magnolia's tulle ballgown is eco-chic made from cotton. 
Everything underneath the tulle is of Organic cotton sateen making this dress wearable and comfortable. The bodice is made from Cotton Silk Satin, and all you see is the beautiful golden shine of natural silk.

My favorites:
1. Allison Bridal Gown. I am really attracted by this photo, I don't know if it is the model or the dress.
2. Eva by you-know-who :) It's a sort of a dress that every girl dreams of wearing, ever since her childhood days.

I'm only sixteen and not in love with anybody, but I'm planning what I want to wear to my wedding already. I love these dresses here! I definitely want a corseted bodice on my gown. My favorite here is the first one. Everything is perfect. I love the color. And her headband adds a fairy-like touch. I would LOVE to wear that gown!
