This season, the hottest dresses straight from the Bridal Fashion Week runways are all about ultra-glam details (think: feathers, fringe and sequins) and sexy silhouettes. With that in mind, it was was a total no-brainer to take our The Knot Spring 2019 cover and fashion shoot to the iconic Las Vegas Strip. Check out some of our favorite looks, below.
