We were chipper with excitement when the most recent edition of Brides Magazine was delivered…for it contained their list of the Top 50 Bridal Salons in America, and after polling over 1,100 brides nationwide on their dress shopping experience – we were selected as one of the top 50!
Summer is the season of sparklers…a season punctuated by the pyro-infused holiday of July 4th. However, the passing of Independence day is no excuse to stop bringing out the sparklers and assorted fireworks.
Summer weddings are tried and true…it’s the most popular time of year to get married! The biggest challenge, other than securing the perfect date at your perfect venue, is keeping your guests cool amidst the strong summer sun.
Monique Lhuillier’s Bliss collection is shown to us on its own time and not at bridal market, which makes going to see the new collection at the Monique Lhuillier showroom in NYC a delightful mid-year treat!
Much can be said for the Wizard of Oz-derived phrase, “There’s no place like home”…for no one knows the Connecticut bride as well as Woodbridge-based designer Callie Tein of Modern Trousseau. (Read to the end for a special little promo…)
Spawning from the wildly successful blush gown trend, dresses of various colored hues were popping up all over at New York Bridal Market this year.
Sweet or sultry? Conservative or sexy? Which route are you more likely to take on your big day?!
We’re bound to see polar variations when designers place their own spin on trends.
We’ve paired up some daring-versus-demure options…which would you prefer?
As with most trends in the bridal industry, illusion necklines and backs have deep roots in the fashion industry. This year at Bridal Market, illusion-style elements seemed to be a staple in many designers’ collections.
In Monique Lhuillier’s own words…”Inspired by a femininely elegant youthful bride, [this collection] provides an edited collection of romantic dresses that are punctuated with fresh styles, all embodying my signature design aesthetic. Color is subtly infused into the collection with beautiful soft tones of pale blush and latte mixed with soft layering of silk white tulle and laces.”
We are so excited
