Bridal Market Spring 2013

October 30th, 2012

Bridal Market might be one of the most exciting times for everyone in the wedding business. Imagine tons of ruffles, tulle, sparkle and seeing all the trends before they hit the stores! We knew we had you at ruffles! It took us awhile to narrow down our favorites to just a few given the many amazing designers and swoon worthy gowns!

One trend that is sweeping the runways is color from pink (a la Jessica Timberlake), crimson and shades of grey. This Watters gown with a beautiful mermaid silhouette and sweet heart neckline is a trendy take on a classic style. Oh, did we mention the wedding veil decked out with floating rhinestones?

Elaborate backs to gowns are also a big hit and are beautiful for guests to admire while you say your vows. This ReemAcra is donned with crystals placed on a light tulle fabric to give the illusion that they have been placed on your skin. With the mermaid silhouette and bright white adornments it is the perfect gown for a winter wedding.

Full sleeves were all the rage in the past season and we can thank the lovely Kate Middleton for that. This season, you can achieve the same look with the more modern feel of a cap sleeve. Amsale got the look just right with this fitted gown in lace with a tulle train, which has a modern but timeless feel.

Vera Wang brought back the two R’s (ruffles and romance!) and we couldn’t be more in love!  The fitted top, ruffled bottom and cream color is perfection but we didn’t expect anything less from Mrs. Vera Wang.
