New York Bridal Market starts this weekend and its kind of a big deal. If you dont spend your hours researching current bridal trends or if you dont make your living in bridal, then you might not know much of anything about it. But youve heard of New York Fashion Week, right? Well swap the avant-garde street-wear for a bridal gown and youve got Bridal Market.
Its most exciting because its where designers unveil their newest collections. Its the place where we start to see new trends emerge, and its the event that influences what styles will be available in salons across the country. Betsy and a few members of our staff will be on their way to New York early tomorrow morning to peruse these new styles, and theyll be sharing a lot of sneak peeks with all of you. Follow along on Instagram
and let us know what you think of the latest designs. Will we see more color again this year? More lace? New fabrics? Have you been looking for the perfect gown, and it just doesnt seem to exist? Maybe youll spot it amongst our peeks.
And Bridal Market isn't just about bridal gowns. It's also the place where the newest bridesmaid gowns and accessories will be showcased. Over the past few years we've seen bridesmaid dresses add more and more sequin and sparkle. What will be the trend this year? What will be the color everyone is clamoring for? We'll have to wait and see.
Before social media Bridal Market was a much more under-wraps event, and most brides werent aware of new trends until they went into production several months later. Thats all changed now, and images of the new gowns strutting down the runway are available instantly to anyone who is eager. That of course doesn't mean the gowns are available instantly, but it does typically mean that social media is the first and only place these gowns will be visible. We are happy to have the opportunity to share the newest trends with you, and we hope you'll follow along.
