New York Bridal Market Recap

Every six months we make a pilgrimage to NYC to take time out and celebrate what’s coming next.  After a caffeine fueled 48 hours of appointments, Ubers and order forms, here’s a quick recap of what’s new and on deck for Fall.


Using multiple colors or an ombre palette through the bridal party is a trend we’ve watched for a season or two.  This Market, a few designers introduced new ways to play with color.

When cocktail length feels too casual and floor length - too fussy, tea length is back and in popular demand! A few designers reminded us why tea length silhouettes are a sweet and sophisticated alternative.

These separates have a knack for cinching a waistline and looking smart.  Using two pieces to create one look allows for an easier fit and unique re-wearability of individual pieces.

Our favorite part of this Bridal Market trip (besides trying on some seriously gorgeous gowns!) was noticing that designers are starting to experiment with their designs. They are taking our feedback and running with it...and we were NOT disappointed.

It was so exciting for us to get a sneak peak of the upcoming trends and we know you will LOVE them just as much as we do!
