Trend Spotting: Bridal Fashion Week

This week was New York's Bridal Fashion Week, the time to ooh and ahh over gorgeous dresses by all the top bridal designers. Although a lot of styles built on previous trends such as visually 3D popping textured skirts and sparkly belts, we noticed a few shifts in style. Time will tell if the brides like these new trends too!

1. Sheer Lace

Lace stays popular for all the right reasons. It's vintage inspired, feminine, and classic. But a rampant trend was sheer lace covering the shoulders, as shown by Lela Rose and Amsale. With more girls preferring to opt away from strapless, this is a great middle ground to feel covered but still show some skin.

The look is being incorporated into our Bridesmaid lines as well. Here's a sneak peek of one of our Dessy Fall 2012 dresses!

2. One-Shoulder Bridal Gowns

We've seen one-shoulder bridesmaid dresses as a popular choice for quite some time, and now bridal gowns are catching up to the trend! I love the fresh and modern feel from these Watters and Amsale gowns.

3. Bold Accessories

Stopping by Ansonia's display, my eye was immediately drawn to this gorgeous necklace. It's definitely not typical bridal jewelry, but if you're a bride looking to make a statement, this would be perfect!

These headbands carry the bold look through both vintage and contemporary styles.

So which trend do you think will catch on? Comment below or vote on our Facebook poll! Two lucky winners by random drawing will score a Bridal Market giveaway of cosmetics and the latest issues of Brides and Martha Stewart Weddings!
