We've dug out our scarves, turned on the central heating and started worrying about Christmas shopping - autumn is definitely here. What better time, then, to look at autumn's key bridal trends?
The wedding shows were rife with fresh and beautiful looks, with the fashion experts at WWD noting statement ruching, rosettes and layered tulle at Reem Acra, Vera Wang and Monique L'huillier, and body-skimming silhouettes at Claire Pettibone and Nicole Miller. Off the catwalk, celebrities have been making waves with their sartorial choices with Ivanka Trump wowing in a long-sleeved lace Vera Wang creation for her recent wedding to Jared Kushner.
And does Vera Wang herself believe that the new Mrs Kushner will spark an autumn trend for long-sleeved bridal wear? "She might very well," Wang told the New York Times. "Nothing would make me happier. I've been doing strapless dresses for 15 years. It's tiring."
