Kate Middleton may be trotting down the aisle in about two weeks but you won't see her in one of these.  Spring is starting out strong with wedding whites but why settle for the typical? If you're looking for something a little new (and a bit edgy) than the traditional whites, check out some of the new silouhettes above. 

Keeping up with the theme of this season, wedding gowns are no different than the RTWs of Spring.  It is keeping within the theme of re-shaping classic shapes to a re-constrcuted dress fit for 2011.

Alexander McQueen's gown is simply gorgeous, over-the-top as in the tradition of being a McQueen but the shapes is still fitting for any modern day princess.

Versace body-con is absolutely stunning.  Modern and sexy, with cut-outs in all the right places. 

My favorite? Mugler.  This is something I would definitely wear to my own, simple wedding.  The dress has great lines and the right touch of edginess... bold shoulders and short hemline.  Did anyone notice the shoes? Mmm Hmm.
