The one trend all the experts we talked to agreed upon was classy coverage--a bridal fashion clearly influenced by the stunning sleeved gown Kate Middleton wore to wed Prince William. Cap sleeves, peekaboo lace and illusion necklines--as well as boleros and other cover-ups that can be worn during the ceremony and taken off later--are growing in popularity with designers and brides alike.
