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!

Textural Laces 
 
The opposite extreme shown on the runway was gowns with unique, textural laces.

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! 

What We’re Loving: Dresses with Slits

What We’re Loving: Dresses with Slits 

As we look ahead to the 2019 bridal and bridesmaids trends we are loving dresses with slits.  High leg slits are perfect for the modern bride who wants a classic floor-length dress with a touch of daring, yet sophisticated detail. This contemporary look also offers a stylish and fun way to show off your legs. Here are some stunning wedding gowns & bridesmaid dresses with slits that we love (and own)! We just know that this trend will continue into next season when designers unveil their newest collections at Bridal Fashion Week in 2 weeks!

Behind the Scenes: New York Bridal Fashion week at Carolina Herrera

We are often asked about New York Bridal Fashion Week and what it is like for us!  Photographer Shaunae Treske  shadowed us to our Carolina Herrera appointment and got a behind the scene glimpse of a bridal market appointment.  Bridal Fashion Week occurs twice a year, in April and in October.  Our appointments either take place in designated hotels where multiple designers are showing or at the designer’s showroom if they are New York based.  If there is a runway show, generally it is on the Thursday or Friday of market and a separate ‘writing appointment’ takes place later in the weekend where we are able to see the gowns up close and personal and learn the details about each gown, including pricing. 

We LOVE going to appointments at the House of Herrera.  The showroom itself is perfectly appointed.  Every detail is impeccable!  There are always lovely sweet treats to enjoy and they serve the MOST delicious iced cappuccino. This market we even caught a glimpse of Mrs. Herrera herself, who popped into our appointment to say hello! …and YES, we all swooned! We wish every market appointment could be as glamorous! 

Thank you Shaunae for joining us and capturing this fun part of our job so beautifully!

New York 2018 Bridal Trends

We just returned from New York Bridal Fashion Week and what a week it was!  I have said it before, but it really holds true now…what a great time to be a bride! There is literally a gown for EVERY bride and I am thrilled because so many of the trends are everything that I adore in bridal!  Below are some of our favorite trends coming up for the Fall 2018 season!  

 

Non strapless!  

Brides are rejoicing everywhere, because it is all about the NON-strapless neckline.  The most predominate necklines that we saw were v-necks and off the shoulder necklines. The v-necklines varied from demure and classic to plunging and daring.

Bows 

I would put a bow on every gown if I could!  So naturally, I was thrilled to see bows grace so many runways!

Capes, Cover ups and Overskirts

  Designers are providing brides with various options to allow them to change up their look from ceremony to reception.  Whether it is a dramatic cape, a voluminous overskirt, or a dainty caplet, brides have plenty of options for surprising their guests with a “second look”, without having to change their gown!

Appliqués

  We saw considerably less lace this season.  The texture instead came from appliqués.  I adore this romantic and feminine detail!

Clean and Simple

  Many designers were cleansing the palate by offering completely clean dresses (and jumpsuits!).  They showed that less was definitely more! The details came from beautiful necklines, seaming details…. or bows!

Fringe

  One of the biggest fashion elements that appeared on several runways was fringe. What a fun way to add a little sass to your wedding day look!
