For the next few weeks, we’re asking bridal salon owners from around the country to share their favorite hot-off-the-runway looks from the most recent Bridal Market. Today, we’re talking to Beth Chapman of The White Dress by the Shore in Clinton, Connecticut. Here’s what she had to say:

Q: Was there one collection or gown that you thought was the “best of market?”

Rivini. Designer Rita Vinieris captured all of the trends, from high necks to colored gowns to lace sleeves. And she showed really interesting skirt shapes.

Q: Of all the gowns that featured color, whether pink, blue, black or red,  was there one or two that you think brides will fall in love with?

The “Lisette” gown from Rivini (left): It’s a beautiful champagne color with an ivory lace overlay. For TRUE color, I adored the light blue gowns that Oscar de la Renta sent down the runway.  Particularly, the gown pictured at right.

Q: What’s your favorite new trend or dress detail of the season?

I loved all of the feminine details showed at this market, but my favorite trend was the diversity of neckline and sleeve options.  I adored all of the lace high-neck silhouettes and think brides will appreciated the many varieties of sleeves that graced the runway.

I also was over the moon about the precious bridal sweaters that were shown by Ivy and Aster.

Here are Beth’s top picks for every bride’s style:
