As bridal fashion week approaches each year, the question on our mind is always: What designs will be shown that we've never seen before? What gowns will shock and amaze us with their creativity and fresh points of view? And sure enough, the designers never fail to bring new designs and innovations in bridal wear that truly surprise us. Fall 2016 Bridal Fashion Week did not disappoint. From nontraditional colors, to three-dimenional textures, to perhaps more skin-baring styles than we've ever seen before, there were some unforgettable dresses to be found among the collections.
In the slideshow above, we've rounded up 13 of the gowns that surprised us the most this season. These styles may not be favored by traditional brides, but they'll certainly turn heads. You'll find a gorgeous blue ball gown, a dress constructed out of a cable knit sweater, and a barely-there lace gown only meant for the boldest of brides. Discover these gowns and more above, and let us know in the comments: which of these styles would you wear?
