Kim’s RecapKim spent the day at Pier 94, the hub of Bridal Market. Literally! Check out her recap for gems like a crystal-edged veil by Ariel Jennifer Taub, an Olia Zavozina long-sleeved lace wedding gown Kate Middleton would LOVE, and Gatsby-inspired bridal sashes by Ossai. 

Leeor’s Recap – Leeor’s recap includes some surprising fashion risks! Case in point: an all-pink collection by Vera Wang, crown veils on Lazaro’s heiress models, pantsuits from Alfred Angelo (so cool), and 60’s-inspired detailing from Temperley London.

Well, it’s that time of year again! In just a few short days, we’ll be heading up to New York City to see the newest designer wedding dresses at Bridal Market. So to get ready for the biggest event in bridal fashion, we thought it would be wise to take a look back at our favorite wedding dresses from last season – the styles that really wowed us. Two of our editors’ personal faves are pictured above: a pink textured rosette A-line gown by Olia Zavozina, and a romantic long-sleeved gown with a plunging neckline and body-hugging silhouette by Berta. Both of these gorgeous gowns were photographed at Pier 94, the hub of New York Bridal Market. Be sure you’re following us on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, and Instagram to get inside scoop on what’s new in bridal fashion. See you on the runway!

Vote for your Favorite Wedding Dress Trend: Lace

Posted by Kim on May 08, 2012

Yesterday, we asked you to pick your favorite sleeve style. Seems like most of you prefer just a hint of coverage, in the form of cap sleeves.

This morning, we’re talking lace – the most feminine and romantic of fabrications. At bridal market this season, we saw designers use lace in entirely new and unique ways. So now we’re wondering which of these new lace styles are you most psyched about?
