    Now "short-shorts" and "wedding" can go in the same sentence. If you're willing to show a little (okay, a lot) of leg, then his Coachella-inspired bridal style from Delphine Manivet's Fall/Winter 2015 collection may be the perfect daring look for you.

  11. This Elaborately Embroidered Blue Wedding Dress

    The boho lace wedding dress gets an edgy update when dyed in a striking blue hue and embroidered with flowers. As if those details weren't unique enough, it's the back of this gown from Claire Pettibone Fall 2015 that landed it on our daring list.

    This super-sparkly number from Johanna Johnson Fall 2015 is begging for a party. Plus, it brings together two of our favorite decades: '20s art deco meets '70s disco.

  13. This Winter-Forest-Inspired Wedding Dress

    Winter wedding dresses usually evoke the season. This graphic-printed dress that depicts a snow-covered forest from Theia Fall 2015 takes that idea in a super-literal direction.

  14. This Sheath Dress With a Feather Embellishment

    Ostrich feathers amp up the daring factor on just about anything. Pair an ostrich feather dress with a jeweled waistband and side cutouts, like this gown from Jim Hjelm's Spring 2015 collection, and you've got a pretty bold look on your hands.

  15. This Super-Shiny One-Shoulder Sheath Dress

    While the silhouette of this dress from Romona Keveza Collection Fall 2015 is classic through and through, the allover liquid satin fabric makes it incredibly daring.

  16. This Lace-Skull-Embellished Wedding Dress

    Nothing says "Halloween wedding" like wearing a skull on your wedding day. Then again, the skull on this dress from Ivy & Aster Fall 2015 is subtle enough that you could pull it off any day.

  17. This Short Lavender Trapeze Dress

    Every element of this dress by Houghton for their Fall/Winter 2015 collection -- from the soft purple hue to the super-short hemline and the exaggerated trapeze shape --combines to make it truly, well, different.

    Nope, this look isn't just meant for under the dress or the wedding night. There's no doubt about it --- wear this totally sheer number from Hayley Paige's Fall 2015 collection and you're bound to get more than a few gasps.
