Last weekend the ladies of White Dresses jetted off to New York for bridal market. This year we were impressed by the emerging amount of clean + simplistic gowns, the off the shoulder trend, and interesting fabrications. Below are some of our favorite bridal trends from market and a look at what is going to be coming for brides getting married next year!
Clean + Simplistic Gowns
This year we saw an incredible amount of designers going back to clean + simple gowns for brides. These gowns were everywhere - by designers who are known for their clean + tailored look, to designers who have traditionally been all about that lace.
Off the Shoulder Gowns
When we say off-the-shoulder gowns are in, we mean it! Even though this look has been one of our favorites since Anna Maier created the Gabrielle gown, it has apparently registered on everyone's radar and we are extremely excited! And this neckline has been translated to so many different styles this market - off the shoulder for the classic bride, the lace loving bride, and the modern bride!
As illustrated in some of the photographs above, our designers strayed from the normal bridal fabrics to incorporate some truly different fabrications - whether this be a jacquard fabric, and incredibly different lace, or a screen print, it seemed our designers were loving the idea of incorporating detail through less traditional mechanisms.
A Change in the Accessory Market
If any part of market was the most exciting, it might have been our visits with our accessory designers. Designers like Haute Bride have created incredible pieces using unique materials for bridal accessories. Even the earrings have moved away from the traditional pearl to a more fashion-forward look. And, for the true princess brides out there, crowns have made their resurgence in bridal and it doesn't look like they will be going anywhere anytime soon (you can thank Hayley Paige, who brought it back at her own wedding).
As always, market was absolutely amazing and we are extremely excited about the new gowns heading back to Nashville + Huntsville for our brides to see. Make sure to check out our Instagram and Facebook as we continue sharing sneak peeks. And, to see what it is like for us at market, head over to the Pronovias website this afternoon to watch their fashion show live from Barcelona.
