Bridal Market, or Bridal Fashion Week is a glorious few days when all of the most incredible bridal designers in the world descend on New York to showcase their latest creations.
Not only do we get to swoon over beautiful dresses, fabulous shoes, and gorgeous accessories, but we also get a glimpse of what trends will be store for brides over the next 12 months.
For 2015 brides, it’s all about the back, with keyhole details, encrusted embellishments, and sheer panels making the back of your gown a real focal point.
New trends include Champagne hues and bridal capes while key fabrics include lace, tulle, crochet and wool.
When it comes to the trends sticking around, (and getting even bigger), long sleeves are making an appearance once again, as are rompers and jumpsuits, florals are set to bloom even brighter this year, and cut-outs and crop tops continue to storm the catwalks.
As for the designers who struck gold with the fashion editors this year, Reem Acra, Theia Couture, Galia Lahav, Claire Pettibone, Sarah Seven, Lazaro, Inbal Dror, Monique Lhuillier and Ines Di Santo are among the big stars so far this season.
Alas, we couldn’t be in New York this year to bring you all the behind-the-scenes Bridal Market action, (we were having too much fun at the Wedding Blog Awards instead), but we did stalk the Instagrams of designers, editors and bloggers who were there instead.
We’ll bring you the very best collections in full next week, but for now here’s some of our very favourite social media snaps, for your swooning pleasure!
