This season’s New York Bridal Fashion Week was a busy time for the WeddingWire Editorial team. We covered a lot of ground, hitting over 60 shows, appointments and presentations in less than a week, and sharing the latest gowns via our brand-new WedStyle app, Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, and more. All of the brand-new dresses are also available for your browsing on our Bridal Fashion Week page.
Now, on to some of the top trends we spotted this season that your brides will be asking for:
Layered Over Nude: We saw designers using nude-colored fabric on many gowns to create the illusion of a barely-there look. Lace overlays provide a pretty, feminine look, while beading gives the style more of a jaw-dropping glam factor.
Barely-There Illusion Necklines: These gowns look strapless but actually have sheer fabric on top for more support.
Slimmer Silhouettes: Body-hugging or sheath styles in ethereal, light, and airy fabrics were all over the runways this season.
Our New York Bridal Market recap has even more must-know wedding dress trends, and you can also see the hot-off-the-runway styles that WedStyle users loved most!
