Every woman has a different vision for her walk down the aisle, but most look to the same sources for inspiration: magazines, blogs and Bridal Fashion Week, the biannual event that sweeps through New York City, leaving tulle, ruching and yards upon yards of satin in its wake.

Here, a sampling of the newest trends to expect on the most important runways next year—wedding aisles.
