Since the launch of boho bridal brand Stone Fox Bride in 2010, the NYC showroom has become an oasis for alternative brides looking to inject a bit of personal style on their big day. This fall, creative director Molly Guy teamed up with fashion maven Savannah Miller to launch their cool-girl bridal collection that boasts romantic, slinky gowns and bohemian-chic wedding dresses. To celebrate their collaboration, Guy gave us an exclusive behind-the-scenes sneak peek of the brand's whimsical studio and dished on all things bridal — including her biggest wedding dos and don'ts and revealing her most unforgettable wedding-day moment.

Dubbed the "fox den," Guy gave us a tour of the airy, bright-hued, and confetti-laced Stone Fox studio — a charming space lined with racks of wedding dresses where all the magic comes to life. Taped along the walls, Guy shares her dazzling collection of images that serves as the brand's inspiration board, showcasing photos that spark feelings of "love, warmth, union, and connection," she says, and featuring nostalgic snapshots of couples in love like John Lennon and Yoko Ono (Guy's parents also make an appearance!)

Serving as the bridal guru for nontraditional brides everywhere, we had to get the low-down on Guy's top wedding tips. One major etiquette wedding-guest no-no according to Guy? "Anything that competes with what the bride is wearing including any shade of white, ivory, or champagne," she says, in addition to a common wedding favorite — flower crowns! We also got the creative director to spill on her favorite wedding memory, which involves an Aston Martin, the Williamsburg Bridge, and an incredibly sweet moment in a surprisingly unconventional setting. Let's just say, this is one wedding moment that brides-to-be will totally swoon over.

Hear the whole story and see the Stone Fox studio in action by watching the video above. Plus, you can see the stunning gowns from the Savannah Miller for Stone Fox Bride collection here!

Why do we love Bridal Fashion Week so much? Because we get to witness all of the emerging wedding dress trends debut on the runway, of course! And this season's blooming details (pun intended) were 3D floral appliqués.

3D appliqués are not necessarily brand new. Last season, they were a hit, with laser-cut floral outlines popping off an array of silhouettes. But this season, these three-dimensional add-ons took a whimsical turn. Soft organza, crystals, and color, even, made the dainty additions lifelike — and proved that florals never get old.

Whether it was the tightly sewn together blooms on a long-sleeve Monique Lhuillier gown or the wispy petals on an off-the-shoulder neckline at Inbal Dror, each of these delicate embellishments breathed fresh air into these designs. Hayley Paige opted for neon hues for her florals, while Naeem Khan made them blush and shimmering. We can't forget Reem Acra or Rivini by Rita Vienieris's, either, whose combinaition of translucent layers and these flower adornments made for a modern finish. Even Amsale's more miniature florals still had a major visual impact.

To hep you better visualize this lively trend, we've whipped together a special runway recap of some of our favorite 3D floral wedding dresses from this season's bridal runways. With the models walking the runway and close-ups on the details, you really get a good look at these blooming embellishments.

When thinking about the perfect meeting of minds, Savannah Miller and Stone Fox Bride are a natural pair. Miller (sister to famed actress Sienna Miller) has been a dominant force in the fashion industry for years while Molly Guy of Stone Fox Bride, has been a major proponent of the alternative, bohemian bridal movement. Now, the two have come together to create a darling collection of dresses for the bride who wants an easy-going wedding-day style, with just the right touch of an It Brit feel.

Featuring a range of slinky silk crepe and velvet creations, the looks, Miller's first foray into bridal, are for the bohemian bride that wants something freeing. The whole collection came about because of Miller's own-wedding day look: A luscious looking ivory cape and flower crown worn in the English countryside. In fact, it was that photo that inspired Molly Guy to create her own bridal realm. After Guy posted the photo of Miller on Instagram, Miller reached out to her, and the rest, as they say, is history.

To celebrate the launch of the collection this Bridal Fashion Week, a party was thrown at the "fox den," also known as Stone Fox Bride's showroom.

Toasting to the new range of wedding dress collections with a specialty "tea" (infused with some Cointreau, of course — how British!), the line made its debut.

The reason there are a ton of Maggie Girls out there is because Maggie Sottero consistently creates gowns that are romantic, accessible, and yet, still super stylish. For the latest collection's debut, we saw some of our favorite elements from the Sottero design house — lace and an expert use of illusion necklines.

In this luminous sheath, above, layers of lace create an ultra-romantic and timeless feel. It's hard not to fall hard for a hemline with scalloped lace, and a sheath silhouette that ever so slightly goes out after it hits the hip. To make this look more modern and playful, Sottero added a tufted tulle train, giving the look an effervescent finish. Plus, there's the allure of an illusion neckline, with just the tiniest appliqus on the shoulder.

We use this phrase a lot but it's extremely true in this case: This gown is better from the back! First thing is first: Just look at those expertly placed floral lace appliés! The back is still mostly sheer, making it a sexy balance to the sweet antique lace additions. The fabric buttons are a darling nod to tradition and also ground this slightly modern look as a classic. And the way that the tulle train billows from her body! We can't, it's too gorgeous!

Stay tuned to see Maggie Sottero's complete new wedding dress collection.

Hayley Paige has never been one to shy away from color, volume or larger-than-life details. And with "fleurescent" as the theme we knew Hayley Paige's Fall 2016 collection would be full of personality and color. Unsurprisingly, the bubbly designer's most recent collection was full of life!

An effervescent tulle skirt with shimmering strappy back took command of the runway, while another pastel blush sheath with beads and sequins embroidered down the back created serious sparkle and drama.

Looking out for love #biglove #fleetwoodmac #hayleypaige #paigeme #nybfw #fleurescent

The embellishments are what really stole the show with more shimmer filling Paige's runway than ever. "Two noteworthy applications involved flower bombing in color and creating effervescent sparkle from hologram-like embellishments," she previously told us of the collection. "You will see heaps of layered sequins and aggrandizes of flowers. If this collection was a tea party, we would be serving lavender flavored tequila and hand-painted petit fours!"

Lace and beads embroidered on a form-fitting bodice with a deep V and spaghetti straps completely contrasted the plush tulle skirt with ruffles along the hem. Even a more traditional lace illusion long-sleeve gown featured translucent layers and a whole lot of volume.

Watching the gowns glide down the runway you can really see how they catch the light and move with grace. Brides with big personalities who wants something romantic but statement-worthy will fall hard for Paige's latest range.

Day 2 of bridal fashion week was jam-packed with gorgeous wedding dresses. From Amsale's romantic minimalism, Reem Acra's sheer lace and Naeem Khan's insane embroidery, today was a total win for future brides-to-be (and us, of course). To help sort through the gown overload, BRIDES Fashion Director Elle Strauss is picking her favorite looks from the bridal runways. Here, her favorite looks from the second day of the Fall 2016 Bridal Fashion Week runways.

Rivini
This flirty mini is everything. From the high-low hem to the tiered neckline and three-dimensional floral appliqués, this short dress would make just as much an entrance at your reception as it would at a small (but oh-so-stylish) ceremony.

Naeem Khan
Khan always presents a line with a strong point-of-view and this collection had a visible Spanish influence with a capital S!

Amsale
The knockout look from Amsale's Fall 2016 show was actually a tea-length lace number that was so subtly impactful. With tiny spaghetti straps a deep V and a full, tea-length skirt you could just as easily wear this winner to your rehearsal dinner as you could to a backyard ceremony. Also, the red lip by makeup artist Daniel Martin was killer (as in, really really gorgeous).

Reem Acra
The use of lace in Reem Acra's show made the gowns that much more special. Especially this dress, which plays with peekaboo illusion on the skirt, making the dainty bridal standby suddenly very modern. Plus this look comes with its own diamanté headphones!!

Christos
Christos is a master of all things light and airy and the delicate lace on this boudoir-inspired silk makes this gown float effortlessly down the runway (and, eventually, down the aisle!).

Naeem Khan's fall 2016 bridal runway show was an overwhelming experience for all the senses. Luxurious, rich textures demanded touch, lovely pink-hued blooms hanging overhead smelled so sweet, and the gorgeous gowns — ranging from full-skirted confections to sexy sheaths — were totally eye-popping for the front-row elite.

One of our favorite too-die-for looks from Naeem was this effortlessly sexy gown — a major show-stopper. With a curve-hugging bustier top, the expert fit of this floor-sweeping gown is an architectural masterpiece. And check out that tantalizing texture. Could you just? This baby turns it up a notch when it comes to bridal glamour. In fact, it totally breaks the dial.

Next up, Naeem went for sweetness and light with a romantic A-line gown. But don't think for a second that this is just your average wedding dress (is there such a thing?!). Those ethereal illusion sleeves and neckline with their sparkly embroidery add a dose of the darling and decadent.

We can't help going gaga for classic ballgowns, but this number freshened up the traditional silhouette with delightfully dainty ruffles, complementing the lovely lace bodice and resulting in a creamy confection straight out of fairytale fantasies. Seriously guys, if we're dreaming, we don't want to ever wake up!

Stay tuned to see the complete Naeem's Fall 2016 wedding dress collection.

If we can count on one thing from Monique Lhuillier it's to present a charming, romantic, and utterly bridal line season after season. From flouncy tiered skirts, to perfectly bonded lace and shimmering beads, this timeless collection is a contemporary bride's dream.

Be still our hearts! There's just something so innately romantic about a billowing asymmetrical skirt, and this one, with its stunning lace appliés, is about as gorgeous as they come. Plus, the boudoir-inspired bodice offers a sexy edge that makes this look simultaneously modern and timeless.

Normally one to go for the modern-day-princess feel, Lhuillier surprised us all when she sent out this sexy little number. A lingerie-like strapless top with a deep-V and curve-hugging sheath skirt makes this slip dress a stunner.

For someone who often goes for the demure over glam, Lhuillier's most recent collection boasts a hefty dose of shimmer. Her signature tiered A-line skirt was paired with an illusion long-sleeve bodice that was sprinkled with beaded appliqués for the perfect twinkle. Another flowing long-sleeve number featured beads along its long sleeves and atop it's three-dimensional floral add-ons.

Are we dreaming? These lace and sparkly confections make major bridal statements. From the illusion sleeves to the antique-looking lace and princess-perfect silhouettes, Lhuillier, yet again, whipped up a collection worth swooning over.

Organza, lace, and sweeping hemlines, this is the stuff wedding dress dreams are made of — and what walked the runway at Rivini's Fall 2016 bridal presentation! Tons of texture and glam details were all there to play and we couldn't wait to dive in!

First Look at Rivini Fall 2016 Wedding Dress

Photo: Eleanor Strauss

Hello lover! We couldn't help but fall for this daringly dramatic mermaid gown, that went heavy on the whimsical and romance. How could so much flouncy fabric still seem so light and airy? Leave it to Rivini! The organza ruffles and the sweetheart neckline with translucence tulle overlay walk the line between classic sweetness and fresh modernity. In a sugary shade and beyond-sweet bow tied at the model's waist, this lovely look is breathtakingly dreamy.

That illusion neckline and to-die-for sleeves on the second model? We can't even. Rivini proved how a single classic silhouette can adapt to a million and one bridal styles, executing an array of delicious details and looks on several curve-hugging mermaid gowns. With beaded bodices, soft touches of shimmer, and point d'esprit tulle, these timeless-turned-trendy wedding dresses are beyond words.

Reem Acra Fall 2016 First Look

Reem Acra always inspires us with her whimsical details, gorgeous lace, and breathtaking silhouettes. This season, Acra continued to show dresses with expertly crafted embellishments, but also experimented with lace-y sheer layers in new ways, too.

Illusion and sheer layers aren't anything new, especially not to Reem Acra, but this season the weightless pieces felt a bit more ethereal than in the past. One princess-worthy strapless gown — with boning lining the bodice — had stunning lace appliqués tightly sewn onto the top of the dress, while on the skirt, they were separated with sections of translucent fabric, making the model's legs visible. This look is sexy, sweet, and oh-so on-trend — while still remaining timeless, of course.

Reem Acra Fall 2016 First Look

A similarly darling A-line strapless number was entirely sheer. Atop the see-through exterior layer were three-dimensional floral appliqués dotted with rhinestones and beads. What romantic bride wouldn't fall hard for this light-as-air look? That's what we thought...

What a great show!!! #ReemAcra #BridalCollection #Fall2016 #ReemAcraBride

We can see that the designer played with sparkle too. In an Instagram posted by the bridal design house, beaded sheaths were also an item du jour for this season's range of gowns. As were bejeweled headphones and selfie sticks!

A few familiar styles, the illusion bodice with hand-embroidered lace and an illusion crop top, also made an appearance this go 'round.
