Market Recap!

Last weekend, we took to the runways and showrooms of our beloved designers for Spring Bridal Market. We were thrilled how many of you followed along and liked, commented, retweeted, and gushed with us about the gorgeous new collections! Major trends of interest:

Ball gowns are back. . .and they are beautiful! The fuller shape dominated the runways, interpreted in a multitude of fabrics, layers and designs.

Asymmetry is an option. One-shoulder necklines and off-center draping were just about everywhere, in both soft and structured gowns.

Non-strapless still dominates. . .We overdosed at Fall Market on illusion necklines and tulle straps, and this season, it seemed the strapless gowns were the minority. We love the feminine and modest cuts that non-strapless can achieve, but do not underestimate the value of leaving something to the imagination. . .covered doesn't have to mean matronly, and we're thrilled about the new necklines emerging.

Our Twitter and Instagram accounts are full of images straight from the runway, and we consulted the experts at Martha Stewart Weddings to grab these great shots of Amsale and Monique Lhuillier gowns.

 

We are also so very excited to drop a hint that we have some HUGE pinch-us-is-it-real news coming your way! Our collection of designers is growing and we can not be more excited about who's joining the family! Stay tuned for a very special announcement later this week!
