When all the holiday engagements began to crowd our Instagram feed (congratulations!), our minds went straight to the most integral part—the dress! We've rounded up the best designer trunk shows at one of Dallas' most extraordinary bridal boutiques, the Bridal Salon at Neiman Marcus Dallas-Downtown.
The beautiful selection of designer gowns at the Bridal Salon at Neiman Marcus Dallas-Downtown.

9. Naeem Khan
Naeem Khan has pushed boundaries with her spring 2017 collection, and brides who want to break from tradition should look no further. The jumpsuits and cocktail-length dresses throughout the collection are enough to warrant that description, but it is the amount of bright colors throughout that take it to the next level.
