Bridal Market Recap, PART 2

More Q&A's from Bridal Market!!

Q. What color trend or combinations do you predict for 2013?

Brittan, owner Boston

A. I think we are going to see a ton of different shades of neutral colors ie., blush, cream, champagne and blues / greys!

Lacey, owner DC

A. I think the soft muted colors are going to be big. Champagne was a favorite for a while, but I think the softer corals, like baby blues and pale greens will be popular for spring.

Meredith, Manager of Madison

A. I think bride's will be continuing to mix and match styles as well as colors, keeping with the soft romantic tones like blush candlelight and champagne. I also think we'll be seeing more adventurous color combinations like emerald, turquoise and fuchsia!

Colleen, Chicago

A. We are seeing more and more brides choose different dresses, colors and/or prints to create a cohesive and incredibly fashion forward bridal party. Thank you, Pinterest!

Here is a picture of a Malia Burn's wedding. The dresses were LulaKate, Coren Moore, Ivy & Aster and Thread.

Blair & Kelli, Owners Dallas

A. We've been getting lots of requests for a very soft mint color lately in Dallas! Donna Morgan & Dolly Pearl have great mint color options, so we can't wait to get their samples in store.

Q. Funniest moment at Market?

Meredith, Manager of Madison

A. At the Martha Stewart Party when the entire staff of New York and Madison Bella's (11 girls) tried to squeeze into one picture at the photo booth!

Q. Best or most thoughtful story behind a dress or collection from a designer?

Lacey, owner DC

A. Lynn Lugo has a "Susan" dress in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month. A portion of all proceeds go to Breast Cancer charities. It's a classic v-neck with a small pink bow along the neck line. Unfortunately, there are a lot of brides out there that have been affected by breast cancer and I think it is a great way to honor those women in their lives.

Brittan, owner Boston

A. I think the Ivy & Aster "To Dye For" bridal informal collection is so cool. The dresses are all under $1000, simple great bridal options. After the wedding, Ivy & Aster will dye them for you - any color!  Who says you can't wear a wedding dress again?

Colleen, Chicago

A. Ivy & Aster has a new bridal alternative line called "To Dye For." After the big day, the bride can send her wedding dress back to Ivy& Aster to be dyed in her favorite color, ombre, or even painted! Such a clever concept. :)

Q. Best cocktail in NYC? Where?

Blair & Kelli, Owners Dallas

A. Loved our cocktail hour with Flora & Elissa from Monique Lhuillier! It was so fun to get to know those ladies on a personal level all while enjoying a yummy glass of prosecco!!

Colleen, Chicago

A. The cupcake prosecco at the Martha Stewart party, yum!

Danielle & Amanda, owners NYC and Madison

A. We love our secret speak easy Milk & Honey! You have to wander through China Town to find their hidden entrance. They customize your cocktails, so it's truly one of a kind!

Mandi, owner Atlanta, GA

A. Pineapple Martini at Stanton Social!
