Brides-to-be who want to sparkle, but appreciate fuss-free style will love one of this season's most popular wedding trends: dresses with built-in necklaces. Since you won't have to carry around any extra jewelry on the big day, this crazy-glam look allows busy brides to cross one extra thing off their pre-"I Do" checklist.

Tons of all-in-one wedding white dresses were sent down the Fall 2014 bridal runways, which belonged to some of our favorite bridal designers including Amsale, Hayley Paige and Badgley Mischka. And with the neckline trend topping everything from boho, silky sheaths to classic tulle-ball gowns, it proves built-in necklaces complement every silhouette, plus every type of bride.

If princess-worthy isn't in your wedding style vocabulary, consider one of the more understated options that graced the runways. Dresses with built-in pearl collars and slim-beaded halters were equally popular, offering a hint of the trend without all the red carpet glitz. For a little more versatility, designers created wedding dresses with detachable beading, allowing stylish brides to swap in their own jewelry for a second look without a second dress.

Crop tops first infiltrated the ready-to-wear runways a few seasons back and haven't left since. Shortly becoming the bread-and-butter of fast fashion retailers, shirts with trimmed hemlines have been spotted on everyone from super-cool teens and fashionable business women to celebrities on the red carpet. This past bridal runway season, though, the belly-baring style made its way into some of our favorite designer's wedding dress collections. This got us thinking: Would you, dear readers, wear a crop top down the aisle?

No doubt this statement-making silhouette is for a specific type of bride — daring and modern come to mind. But also brides on a budget may want to consider since purchasing a two-piece wedding day look may be more affordable than a traditional gown. In case you want to flaunt a sliver of skin on your big day, we rounded up a few of our favorite crop top designs from this season.

Hayley Paige took the warrior princess route, pairing a flouncy ruffled gray skirt with a tough-as-nails shimmering crystal-adorned high-neck alabaster top (see above).

Houghton, on the other hand, crafted a crop top wedding day ensemble that's perfect for a boho bride: an ivory lace long-sleeve top sits above a full lace A-line skirt, with only a sliver of the model's midriff in sight.

Mara Hoffman tried the trend in the form of a shimmering, silk georgette beaded gold bustier and matching skirt. The amount of visible skin is even less than Houghton's lace look.

Lastly, playful brides looking for a pop of personality will adore Tara Latour's fringe-tastic top complemented with a full A-line skirt.

So, whether you're feeling fierce like Hayley Paige's bride or a bit more conservative a la Mara Hoffman, a crop top is a great way to play with proportion on your wedding day.

If your dream wedding dress is classic, but modern, then look no further than a gown with illusion cap sleeves. The ladylike style was one of the most popular trends on the Fall 2014 bridal runways, proving that it's time for engaged girls who call sleeves "matronly" to reconsider. Designers like Vera Wang, Reem Acra, Monique Lhuillier, and Lela Rose sent everything from traditional ball gowns to contemporary sheaths featuring the barely-there sleeves floating down their catwalks.

Along with complementing almost every type of silhouette, the dress detail itself is very versatile. Our favorite fashion houses offered the illusion cap sleeve in a variety of styles including ones that were super-sheer, as well as versions that boasted intricate beading and stunning lace appliqués. Since it provides coverage without sacrificing fashion, the neckline trend is also fit for any type of ceremony — whether you're marrying in a religious venue or saying "I Do" seaside. Essentially, illusion cap-sleeve wedding gowns are a must for the romantic or glamorous bride looking to add an effortlessly sexy touch to her big day look.

All that glitters is gorgeous! Jim Hjelm's Spring 2014 bridal runway was full of seriously sophisticated shimmer. Whether it was a completely beaded bodice, a twinkling sash, or an embellished neckline, the noticeable sparkle added a heady dose of glamour to an already elegant collection.

We love how the embellishments added ballast to the line's otherwise soft, airy silhouettes. A gem-covered bodice toughened up a sleek mermaid number that featured a trumpet's skirt—usually a voluminous tuft of fabric jutting out from underneath the body-hugging bodice—of soft tulle; while a red-carpet worthy ruched dress with a sweetheart neckline and Angelina Jolie-style slit was fastened with silk organza, giving the fierce gown some light-as-air movement down the runway.

The three words we'd use to best describe Ines Di Santo's Fall 2014 bridal runway show are glamour, glamour, and—you guessed it—more glamour. The luxe line featured major mermaid silhouettes and decadent details that made our hearts race.

Baroque lace appliqués, glamorous body-hugging bodices, and serious shimmer all had a moment on the latest Ines di Santo bridal runway. Even the shorter shifts were heavily embellished with floral appliqués, crystals, and feathers. Regal off-the-shoulder and illusion necklines were embellished with intricate beading. A few of the dresses featured light-as-air overlays over the tight silhouettes, which created a fresh, modern-meets-romantic effect.

Glistening crystal-embroidered bodices, glamorous ruching, and romantic lace set the stage for Anne Barge's dainty yet decadent Fall 2014 wedding dress collection. Overall, the range was a tribute to femininity: sultry open backs and shimmering brocade defined flirty silhouettes. Body-grazing bodices were cinched with sweet bowed sashes; heavy-embroidery and shimmer were paired with airy and ethereal skirts—all of which made for beautifully balanced bridal looks.

One thing that caught our eye: all of the different necklines! From beaded halters to a modern one-shoulder to boat necks and a plunging V, variety was on beautiful display on the runway.

Anna Maier ~ Ulla Maija's Fall 2014 collection played off the designer's signature mix of feminine silhouettes and traditional bridal fabrics. "With this collection I imagined timeless beauty and sensuality," the designer says. "I imagined a breadth of finishes that could be only realized across many fabrics. I wanted the depth and complexity that could only be found mixing materials and techniques."

That philosophy is clear in the gorgeous collection that walked the Fall 2014 bridal runway. The show, which featured a dazzling combination of luxurious silks and lace, kicked off with a gown that echoed notes of Kate Middleton's iconic Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen wedding dress. The lace long sleeves and high neck were utterly Victorian, and yet so very of-the-moment.

In additional looks, we saw all types of sheaths—some with lace illusion fabric, some with V-necks, some with intricate scalloped hems, and still others with contemporary cap sleeves. The multiple styles showed the versatility of a classic sheath.

Other standouts included an A-line dress with embellished bodice and waist bow and a stunning lace one-shoulder sleeve. Floral accents and many strapless necklines made each and every dress shine.

Alfred Angelo took a decidedly more modern turn this runway season, with a collection that featured sleek pantsuits (hello city hall brides!), inventive capes (a welcome update to the traditional veil), and deep V-necks. While the collection was varied—, featuring romantic lace and blush wedding dresses, ruched mermaid gowns, and, of course, princess-worthy ball gowns—two recurring elements kept the series of looks cohesive: Body-conscious silhouettes and voluminous details in the form of rosettes, ruffles, and appliqués.

For example, luxe taffeta ball gowns were belted with glistening crystals, while otherwise sleek suits were embroidered with lace to soften the aesthetic. The designers blended blush accents with traditional wedding white, while a slinky charmeuse sheath was complemented with a voluminous rose-accented bolero and embellishment-heavy dresses were paired with airy overcoats. We also loved the use of newer necklines—like an illusion halter and a shimmering sheer one-shoulder dress.

A luxe, Art Deco vibe was the inspiration behind Badgley Mischka Bride's Fall 2014 collection of utterly glamorous wedding dresses. "The Badgley Mischka 2014 Bridal Collection really goes back to the DNA of our style—the glamour of 'Old Hollywood'; we fused it with the effortless chic of the French Riviera of the 30's for a bride of any era," the designers wrote in their show program. With glittery beading, soft mermaid skirts, and body-skimming silhouettes, they managed to capture the glitz and glamour of Hollywood's golden age in a way that still speaks to contemporary brides.

Silk fabrics and cap sleeves helped channel stylish stars like Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly, while modern touches like tulle peplums and illusion necklines kept the collection of-the-moment. That old-meets-new mix was evident in every look: Tasteful long sleeves were paired with daring, deep V-necks, intricate beading overlaid modern, blush pink tulle, and simple strapless necklines got a boost from figure-flattering ruching. Chevron-fringe jackets, sheer backs, and sparkling hair pieces (along with voluminously curly, bobbed hair) all added unique touches. The overall effect was sophisticated—with a sparkly edge.

Badgley Mischka Bride often goes for runway-worthy designs that happen to be super-bridal, and this collection is no exception. We can imagine these designs worn at a wedding that's dripping with Old Hollywood-worthy elements like metallics and lots and lots of diamonds.

Watch: Christos’s Fall 2014 Bridal Runway Show

With effervescent tulle peplums, gently ruched bodices, and free-flowing silhouettes, Christos's latest bridal runway show was as ethereal as ever. Instead of sticking to their standby silk chiffon and tulle, light-as-air lace came into play this season as well. The design house focused on creating "fluid and airy silhouettes" with "feather like layers of tulle, point d'esprit, and lace." The mixed fabrics gave Christos's latest designs for the Fall 2014 season an extra romantic edge.

Illusion necklines, sweeping chiffon V-necks and fluttering cap-sleeves all added to the line's inherent softness. This season, it was all in the details: Lace was gently appliquéd onto a free-flowing layered skirt, a twinkling bejeweled belt added a dash of glam to an otherwise breezy creation, silk organza flowers were fastened on a few backs. And while the fit on many of the gowns felt freeing, a huge emphasis was found on the waistlines—extra eye-catching crystal belts and shiny satin-faced chiffon belts wrapped around the ultra-airy fabrics to help cinch the waist. Modern elements were found on the gowns as well. Peplum skirts, illusion necklines, lace-adorned keyhole details, and deep-V, revealing backs added on-trend touches to the angelic wedding dresses. We could imagine these designs just as easily on a Mediterranean beach as we could in a swanky city loft wedding or a springtime garden affair.
