Miss Universe 2012 Evening Gowns Double As Wedding Dresses (PHOTOS)

Should the Miss Universe pageant be re-named Mrs. Universe?

While watching the evening gown portion of Miss Universe 2012 Wednesday, we noticed dozens of white dressess with trains, mermaid skirts and sweetheart necklines that distinctly resembled wedding gowns. Was this a pageant or a bridal expo? They were a bit more glitzy and had higher slits than what might normally come down the aisle, but the gorgeous gowns had potential to inspire brides-to-be.

Take a look at slideshow to see the competition looks we think could take the crown as wedding dresses. Tell us what you think of them in the comments!
