It has been a week since we returned from bridal market and we are still reeling from all of the beauty that graced the runways. The overall trend for market was feminity. Tulle made its way into every designer’s collection in some way shape or form.
From fitted gowns to full on ball skirts, soft fabrics reigned supreme. Frothy confections floated down all of the runways. There continues to be lots of texture in all of the collections. Both swiss dot and my personal favorite, point d’esprit were consistent across collections. Ruffles, layers and flowers were a common theme.
Color played an important roll in all of the collections. From lightly colored sashes in hues of blues and pinks to pastel gowns, the introduction of color topped off the overall feminine feel.
Black accents continued to also be a consistent theme through many of the collections.
The trends in silhouettes were full soft skirts, natural waists and one shoulders.
All of the stunning feminine details were a girly girls dream come true. All of this fabulousness does come at a price though! We saw retails come up quite a bit this season. The price of silk and lace has gone up considerably. That fact coupled with all of the stunning dress maker details, made the prices rise. But, the good news is that gowns look like they are worth every penny!
Stay tuned for a recap of the fun parties that we attended and the exciting new lines that we picked up!

The wedding mavens of Wedding Row in Clinton are joining forces with the interior design experts of Venetucci Home in Westbrook, to create an evening of inspiration for those interested in wedding, fashion or home décor.
On October 27th from 6-9pm, Venetucci Home will be hosting a cocktail party along with the members of Wedding Row. The event will showcase vignettes of furniture that will be staged as inspiration for your wedding, home or lifestyle.
We will be using different furniture and interior vignettes designed by Venetucci Home to set the inspiration for a wedding, your home or lifestyle. Each vignette will have a mood board designed by Sarah True of True Event and include such elements as a wedding gown, a bouquet of flowers, stationary pieces, and even a wedding cake—all that incorporate the feel of the vignette.
Our goal is to show that design inspiration can come from anywhere. Even with our wedding focus, guests will garner inspiration that they can apply to their homes and lifestyle. It will be a night for anyone interested in fashion and interior design.
