For the fashion-forward bride-to-be (or anyone who loves beautiful dresses, really), there is nothing more exciting than browsing through designers' latest wedding dress collections. Not only are these hot-off-the-runway looks drop-dead gorgeous, but they also embody the latest trends in bridal wear.

We spent the last several days in New York City attending dozens of fashion shows from top designers during Bridal Market Fall 2013, scouring the runways for the latest and greatest in bridal fashion. While "oohing" and "ahhing" over the fabulous collections, we took careful notes about the emerging trends for the coming year. Check them out below:
