It's one of our favourite weeks of the year!
Over the last few days, the big names of the bridal fashion world have descended on New York for Bridal Market.
A fashion week dedicated to all things weddings, where the biggest designers showcase their creations for the season ahead, with gorgeous gowns, divine accessories, and even the biggest hair and make-up trends for daring, fashion-forward brides.
And while there were lots of downpours in NYC this week, nothing could rain on the parade of collections, with each one as daring, dreamy, and beautiful as the last.

Sadly Elizabeth and I couldn't make it to Bridal Market this year (we're too busy bringing you prettiness from Dublin and Dubai, and we have some very exciting travels coming up soon – watch this space!).
We love sharing glorious and gorgeous wedding dresses and accessories on our Instagram feed all year 'round but this week we've been regramming like crazy, curating the biggest trends and most beautiful gowns from New York. Be sure to follow us @bridalmusings so you don't miss a single sequin bead or silk ruffle.
As for 2016's most exciting wedding dress trends, the illusion panel is set to be bigger than ever, statement skirts are back, boho just got a cool, modern makeover, and crop top wedding dresses are sticking around for another season – but this time they're even more elegant.
Ornate embellishments, daring plunges, statement sleeves and romantic florals are the biggest looks across the board.
We'll be taking a closer look at some of our favourite collections in the coming days, but first up, we thought we'd take to Instagram and share the snaps we've been hitting “like” for, over the last few days…
