Reem Acra recently showed her Spring 2014 collection at New York Bridal Fashion Week, pairing gowns with quirky accessories. Acra's dresses are beautiful and figure-flattering, adorned with meticulously applied crystals, pearls and embroidery. Despite the designer's use of traditional materials in her line, there are pieces in the collection that are sure to catch the eye of non-traditional brides.

One of the most revealing looks is a tulle mini dress that exposes the back and shoulders. For those who prefer to wear a little more fabric on their wedding day, Acra sent models down the runway carrying parasols draped with tulle and cascading blossoms that doubled as veils. More unusual veils included 1920s-inspired headbands that read sentiments like "only you," "thank you for your love," and "just married."
