It has all the staples of a Debut-worthy moment: a lacey A-line silhouette, delicate detachable cap sleeves and 3D-encrusted floral details. Fully embrace the era with effortless bouncy curls (and a pair of cowboy boots under your dress!) for an all-American girl look.

Don't blame me for including a black wedding dress in this roundup. It's a must for to-be-weds inspired by the Reputation era. And Fuego by Galia Lahav is end game. It's a sexy and unexpected yet delicate French lace mermaid gown loaded with Flamenco-inspired silk tulle and feathered ruffles. Oh, and don't forget to add-on the cathedral-length veil with black embroidered lace for a dramatic entrance.

I love the cottagecore aesthetic, and this BHLDN dress is truly a Folklore vibe. This BHLDN gown was actually inspired by an early Victorian bridal gown found in a shop on London's Portobello Road. Need I say more? It's layered with delicate tulle, allover floral lace and raised cotton embroidery. Plus, those flutter sleeves - so cute! You'll easily put this one on and say it's your favorite.

9. Evermore Wedding Dress: Savin London Catalina Dress

Champagne problems? We don't have them. I immediately thought of Willow the moment I laid eyes on this breathtaking dress from Savin London. For the whimsical romantics drawn to Evermore, this flowy dress with statement bell sleeves has it all. My favorite detail? The florals throughout the gown are hand-painted on the statement bell sleeves. Being obsessed is an understatement.

10. Midnights Wedding Dress: Willowby Stars Align Dress

If you're a Midnights girlie like I am, then this dress is going to immediately put you in a lavender haze (I mean, the tulle color is literally called Misty Violet). This frothy V-neck ball gown will have you feeling bejeweled too, it's made with custom shooting star embroidery in either silver or gold with seed beads and clear sequins dusted on top. Simply put, you'll be sparklin'.
