Is the Carrie Bradshaw Flower Corsage Making a Comeback?
Posted by Sarah Zlotnick. Filed under Bridal Fashion, Bridal Market Spring 2014

From nameplate necklaces to Manolo Blahnik mania, Sex & the City kicked off many trends in both the fashion and bridal worlds. Feminine and flirty, one our favorite Carrie Bradshaw looks was the flower corsage she pinned to belts, lapels, and everything in-between. Many designers showed blooms pinned at the waist for Spring 2014, and we couldn’t be more happy that the style just might be making a comeback. It’s the perfect something extra for a spring ceremony, don’t you think?

Day Two: NYC Bridal Market Top Ten {Part One}
Posted by Kate. Filed under Wedding Dress

Day two in New York was chock full of incredible shows… it’s feels impossible to pick just ten of the highlights.  Alas, it must be done… my job, sometimes, is incredibly difficult ♥

no. 1 Sheer Beauty + Pleated Tulle

Reem Acra’s presentation was one of my absolute favorites of the weekend.  Featuring edgy, embroidered illusion gowns and innovative pleated veils, it was one stunner after another on the runway. 

no. 2 Gone Green Couture

This season, Romona Keveza gave going green a whole new meaning. Her couture evening gowns were featured in pastel, lime, and shades of apple and she even pushed the envelope with a fresh mint bridal ballgown!

no. 3 Claire’s Paradise

Oh Claire, how I love you and your gorgeous gowns… For Fall 2013, the celebrated Claire Pettibone unveiled a collection of earthly delights made for the modern goddess.  Spending an hour in Claire’s Garden of Eden was, without a doubt, a highlight of the weekend! 

no. 4 Reveling in Romantic Luxury at St. Pucchi

Luxe laces, ostrich feather embellishments, and vertical pleating elements had me reveling in romance during my stop at St. Pucchi.  Here are three favorites from the new collection by designer Rani Totman.

no. 5 Awe-Inspired at Monique

There was one moment during the entire weekend that absolutely took my breath away… it was in the last minutes of Monique Lhuillier’s fairytale runway show.   Over a dozen models lined up in the new gowns…dream dresses of silk, lace and tulle in Monique’s signature feminine style.  The collection, the ambiance… everything was pure magic!

Stay Tuned for Part Two…

Trend Snippet: Finale Dresses
Posted by Kate. Filed under Wedding Dress

After we’ve had the pleasure of seeing nearly every dress in a bridal designer’s new collection… there is always the anticipated finale dress.  Sometimes it’s highly climactic…. a statement dress…something a little different, more avant garde, a piece the designer takes particular pride in,  other times, there is a more subtle close to the show.  Here are eighteen finale dresses in every variety from this October’s New York bridal fashion week. We’ll let these dresses speak for themselves and you can be the judge.

Sweet Classics by 1. Badgley Mischka 2. Christos 3. Romona Keveza
