Simone Carvalli showed a mix of fun and flirty dresses as well as formal gowns at their Spring 2012 runway show. Brides will be able to find a more modest look for their ceremony and sexier options for their reception. Here are five designs we loved:

Sparkle Surprise: Hidden in the center of each ruffle on this one-shoulder gown are a small cluster of crystals. A small touch that we thought was a nice one.

In addition to the color we really liked the black applique swirl design on the above-the knee V-neck dress shown on right and the bodice draping and flirty skirt on the left.

Flat Flowers: We saw a range of three dimensional flowers at market but this flat and fringed petal design was one of our favorites. The modern blooms accent a sash at the waist and the shoulder straps. (The draping on this bodice is also quite flattering.)simone flower appliques, wedding dress bridal market events navigation

Hourglass Figures: Show off a narrow waist in this fit-to-flare gown made of lace and accented with satin and a crystal embellishments. The satin draping draws the eye in and gives the impression of a narrow waist as well as flatters one.

Reception Dress: Similar to one of our five faves from last season’s Simone Carvalli show is this short and sexy dress, perfect for the reception or after party. The one-shoulder tank sleeve is embellished with crystals and pearls and the skirt and hem are adorned with over-sized flowers with crystal centers.

Bridal Market Recap: Simone Carvalli

Simone Carvalli’s Fall 2011 collection hit on many of the season’s trends — floral, tiers, one-shoulder necklines, tulle — and each of their dresses added that va-va-va-voom detail to ensure that a bride will look and feel both beautiful and sexy on her big day.

Here are five wedding dresses from the collection that caught my eye:

1 – Mini-dresses are a great option for an informal wedding or as a reception dress.  This ivory one-shoulder mini-dress features three-dimensional flowers with a touch of sparkle on the skirt.  A great dress to show off your legs.

2 – Bride’s searching for that Hollywood glam look may want to slip into this white silk satin gown.  The strapless bodice is encrusted with silver beading and embroidery and the mermaid skirt is sure to hug you in all the right places.

3 – Dreamy is the word that comes to mind when I first saw this ball gown.  The pleated strapless bodice is embellished with a crystal belt and the full skirt features an asymmetrical overlay.

4 – Dropped waist gowns are everywhere but I especially like the colored ribbon placed above the flowing skirt on this one.  The splash of color is a great detail for brides who want their dress to pop.  In addition to the sexy silhouette, the draped bodice will also enhance your curves.

5 – Tulle was seen in many, if not all, collections this season.  The light and airy look of tulle was used on bodices and skirts in several ways including this layered skirt and pleated bodice shown here.  Contrasting the tulle fabric is an ornate silver embroidery and beading applique on the dropped waist seam and cascading on to the bodice.
