The bridal fashion elite were in full force at the WeddingWire “To Market, To Market” party kicking off New York Bridal Market! Held at the Wayfarer, fashion insiders were treated to a variety of pre-market goodies including makeovers by GLAMSQUAD, personalized calligraphed notebooks by Eliza Gwendalyn, a GIF-booth from Smilebooth, and much more! Monte Durham, star of Say Yes to the Dress: Atlanta, was on hand for selfies, as were fabulous designers like Olia Zavozina, and the team from Jean-Ralph Thurin. It was the perfect way to get pampered and celebrate before the hectic (but always amazing!) New York Bridal Market!
Special thanks to our partners the Wayfarer, GLAMSQUAD, Honest Tea, illy issimo, Eliza Gwendalyn, Uber, Jarrell Entertainment, Yosi Samra, Heartfelt Studio, Smilebooth, and True Florette Floral Design for making this event an amazing experience.

Another Fall Bridal Fashion Week has come and gone, and our Editorial Team witnessed some truly memorable moments that were both on and off fashion designer runway shows. Editor Sarah Zlotnick’s favorite? “New York City is an exciting place for wedding fashion because it’s an exciting place for love. While jetting between fashion shows one day, I walked right into this couple taking their engagement pictures in the middle of Times Square. I wanted to scoop the bride-to-be up and take her with me!” she said. Read more that singularly knocked her socks off here.
