We were nothing but blown away by the 2018 New York Bridal Fashion Week that took place last week! Our good friend and photographer Collin Pierson shared some amazing photos that he captured up close at the shows he attended, and we’re so thankful that he shared them with us!
We also caught up with Kelly Leggett, the Director of Marketing at Little White Dress Bridal Shop in Denver, and she shared a few of her favorite looks! Between Kelly and the #CallunaCrew, we’re recapping the top trends we noticed and loved for all of our 2018 + 2019 brides!
- Royal Wedding Influence: Kelly shared, “With another royal wedding around the corner, the regal look is everywhere! Ball gowns with sleeves are a huge influence in bridal fashion for the season. We loved the bold, royal look with the dress from Naeem Khan’s new collection.” Who else is excited to watch Meghan and Harry tie the knot?!
- Peplum: A soft flare around the waist takes romance to the next level. We’re in love with this beauty by Gracy Accad.
- Capes: Add an extra layer of sophistication with a gorgeous cape! We’re loving this accessory as seen in the new Berta Bridal and Anne Barge lines. One of our 2017 brides, Blair, wore a Berta cape for her wedding, and we were obsessed! Click here to see images from her wedding day.
- Jumpsuits: Another trend that Kelly and the Little White Dress team loved! “No longer an “alternative bride” choice, jumpsuits are definitely now in the mainstream – most frequently as a reception look. The sheer, shimmery Mira Zwillinger jumpsuit was hands down a favorite from the Spring 2019 collections,” Kelly shared.
- Statement Bows: A fashionable bow is the accent of choice to dress up an otherwise more simple silhouette. Reem Acra and Amsale showcased this trend from both angles!
- Fringe: The third trend that Kelly of LWD highlighted is fringe! “The festival fashion, boho-babe, 1970’s-inspired trends are going strong for bridal, and fringe is a way to bring in the look without going full-on Coachella for the wedding day. We love this 1970’s-meets-1920’s dress from Lela Rose’s Spring 2019 collection,” she shared.
- Applique: We saw lots of delicate lace and floral applique at several fashion shows including THEIA and Monique Lhuillier! We love this feminine and effortless look!
