The Best of NY Bridal Markets, Spring / Summer 2014

by Azure

If you just happen to be wondering what I'm seeing that's good out at market this year--here's where my eyeballs landed. For me, there's one word to describe spring/summer 2014: 'easy going'. Designers are finally getting away from dresses that have everything including the kitchen sink thrown in--ruffles, lacey boned bodices with more ruffles and huge trains following. I'm looking at 2014 and seeing dresses by Vera Wang, Carolina Hererra and Romona Keveza that seem organic--as if...

Spring 2014 Bridal: Smoldering Sensuality from Reem Acra

by Azure

Where do I even begin with Reem Acra's drop dead gorgeous Spring 2014 bridal collection... I sat front row at the runway show (rubbing elbows with Preston Bailey, Randy Fenoli, Sylvia Weinstock, and many more), and had SYPhotography there to capture it all! Doing market as a bride-to-be was definitely a tease, and no designer gave me that loving feeling quite like Reem Acra did. The theme for this collection was "Thank you for your love" and beyond the beautiful dresses, the...

Backstage at Oscar de la Renta

by Brooklyn Bride

Yesterday was the Oscar de la Renta show, and I was so excited to be one of the bloggers invited early to shoot backstage.

This time, we were allowed access to everything, from the rehearsal to make up and hair, and the one thing that struck me was how calm it was!  Hope you enjoy a sneak peek behind the scenes at Oscar de la Renta!

by Bride Chic

  I just couldn't resist throwing out a few of my own predictions for the wedding dress details you'll find gracing the bridal runways this week! Have you noticed that the past few seasons' bridal shows have not only been in line with high-end fashion, but have also added an indie twist to wedding dress styles?

Inspired Bridal Creations by Chrissy Wai Ching

by Bride Chic

I'm always intrigued by fiber artist/designers who try their hand at bridal. Each seems to come up with some real individuality you won't find in the mainstream. Perusing the 100 Layer Cake vendor section I ran across the truly unique and innovative work of Chrissy Wai Ching whose roots are as fused as the designs she's been launching since 2003. Her bridal line, though toned down from the pops of wild color you'll find in her other collections, is brave and definitely has that...
