Spring 2019 New York Bridal Fashion Week Trends

Spring 2019 Bridal Fashion Week Trends 

We just returned from New York Bridal Fashion Week and we are still swooning over the latest trends from the Spring 2019 collections. A bride’s wedding gown should not only be a reflection her wedding aesthetic, but it should reflect her personal style and who she is.  With the current trends in bridal, there TRULY is a gown for every bride. The silhouettes, fabrications and necklines shown during Spring 2019 New York Bridal Fashion Week were diverse.

It is such an amazing time to be a bride!  There are options for all body types, venues and personal styles.  Below are the trends and some of our favorite gowns.

 

 
Sheer Cover Ups
 
Many designers showed coverage options on their runways.  This spanned from sheer capes, to capelets and boleros.  They were represented on both classic silhouettes as well as more avant garde options, like jumpsuits and shorts!

Clean and Classic
 
Many designers showed completely clean wedding gowns last season.  The difference this season was that many of them had sleeves. My favorite was the long sleeved version. To me, this is the perfect gown for a classic Fall or Winter wedding!

Colorful Embroidery
 
This daring new trend emerged this season.  Several designers took the existing embroidery trend one step further by introducing statured color in ethnic inspired floral patterns. 
 
 
Temperley London
 
 
Willowby By Watters
Satin 
 
Satin is a traditional fabric that we have not seen in some time.  Being that matte crepes have been popular for several seasons, designers are swinging the pendulum and bringing back the sheen with luxurious satin fabrics. 
 
 
 
 
 
 
V-necks
 
V-necks continue to be the hot neckline of the season.  This neckline was represented in various depths – from demure to plunging.

Whether you are a classic bride looking for a traditional gown or more of a boho bride wanting something completely unique, there is a truly an option for every bride to be!

A Custom Wedding Dress at The White Dress by the shore

A Custom Wedding Dress at The White Dress by the Shore!

At The White Dress by the shore we love helping bride’s find the perfect wedding dress.  There are times when a bride has a vision of a gown that she just cannot find. Or, perhaps she loves the top of one gown and the bottom of the other.  In those cases, we are able to create a custom wedding dress for The White Dress by the shore brides!

We met Patty last year shortly after her engagement.  Patty’s  wedding was taking place in her home country of Brazil. She had a vision of an elegant, glamorous gown that would make a statement for her special day.  It was important to her that the gown have straps, a full skirt and she favored beaded lace. She had a photo as inspiration that she brought to her appointment.  We tried on several gowns in the boutique, but she could not find the perfect gown that had ALL of the elements that she was dreaming of.  So, we worked with designer Augusta Jones to make Patty’s gown vision come to life!

The first step in the process was to identify the overall shape of the gown and the lace that she loved. We then sketched out the gown, took a series of measurements and sent them off to Augusta Jones.  The designer then constructed Patty’s gown out of muslin, which is a cotton fabric.  When the muslin arrived, Patty came in for a fitting so that we could fit it to her and make adjustments to create the perfect the silhouette.

Our head seamstress Penny, adjusted the muslin according to Patty’s specifications. In her case, we changed the shape of the armhole slightly. lengthened the straps and lowered the back neckline.

Several months later, Patty’s gown arrived. It was in the fabric that she selected and had all of the design specifications that we had made. It was PERFECT! In her final fitting we adjusted the hem and created a bustle to the shoes that she was planning on wearing…and off to Brazil she went!
