We are very excited about the exclusive, private runway videos we shot at Bridal Week in New York! Not only do these videos enhance the exquisiteness of each gown, but it allows you to see how the dress moves; something that is very important to take note of for a garment you’ll be in for five or more hours.
Along with each private runway video, we had the pleasure of interviewing the designer and getting their point of view on their Spring 2013 collection. Each dress was created with a purpose, and we loved hearing the inspiration behind each gown.
A few members of the WeddingWire team headed up to New York last weekend for Bridal Week, an annual event where all of the top wedding gown designers have exclusive runway shows across Manhattan. Think Fashion Week for weddings!
While a few of us were bouncing around to different private viewings, we also made Pier 94 in Midtown, New York City our home for the weekend. We were thrilled to be the show’s media sponsor this year; providing select designers with a private runway show, and guests of the event some R & R at a chic lounge full of treats from some of our generous partners.
Some of our favorite highlights, and special thanks, from the weekend were:
- WeddingWire hosted 11 designers on a Private Runway in the Fashion Theatre on Friday.
- We invited all of the designers and attendees for a champagne toast and cupcakes on Sunday. The champagne and cupcakes reception was thanks to Georgetown Cupcake Soho.
- Judith Leiber’s creative director Jana Matheson was in our booth for a Q&A on Monday for 2 hours. The Judith Leiber bags were included as part of our Lounge décor for the full weekend so guests had a chance to ooh and ahh over them.
- Our lounge was the spot for guests to “Power Up” and refuel. Along with ‘charging stations’ for laptops and phones, we offered a delicious candy buffet from Just Sweets, and Honest Tea provided a selection of over six teas throughout the weekend to hydrate!
We had an absolute blast and can’t wait for the Spring 2013 Bridal Market event!
