We asked our readers to submit their “wedding dress wish lists” and we went on the hunt at New York Bridal Market to find their dream dress. Kara-Marie wrote in with the following request:

I’m looking for a 1950’s inspired strapless multi-layered lace gown with matching jacket…I dream of looking like my grandmother did on her wedding day, If I had the money I would recreate her dress specifically!

Luckily for Kara-Marie, many designers created gowns with retro-inspired flair this season. While she didn’t mention if she’s looking for a tea-length style (typical for 1950s wedding dresses) or not, we included some here. And you’ll notice that not all of these styles are strapless – we thought an illusion neckline might be a good (and era-appropriate!) coverage option, as well.

Pier 92 was the hub of this season’s New York Bridal Market, full of exciting new wedding gowns, bridesmaid dresses, and accessories. It was so much fun to check out the new collections from mainstays and brand-new design houses. Check out just a sampling of the collections that showed at Pier 92 here:

Bari Jay Bridesmaid Dresses: Love the rainbow of colors in this bridesmaid collection. Our favorites? The black lace peplum mini, the beach-worthy multicolor gown, and the on-trend chartreuse.

Berta Wedding Dresses: These wedding dresses hug the figure in all the right places. It’s definitely a sexy collection, but totally feminine at the same time.

Ivy & Aster Wedding Dresses: We loved how whimsical Ivy & Aster’s dresses are. From a textured tea-length style to a black-and-white feathered mini to a patterned romantic gown, lots of unique styles here.

Olia Zavozina Wedding Dresses: This collection features a mix of form-fitting, glam gowns, and more demure styles. We all swooned over the pink gown featured above.
