Bridal Fashion Week came and went, and while we’re certainly sad to see it go, we’re pretty pumped about all the stunning dresses and brands it put on our radar. Between the stunning Art Deco-inspired beading at Justin Alexander to the porcelain flowers at Peter Langner, this bridal market definitely had plenty of treats for our senses.
After perusing through the hundreds of photos, Boomerangs and Snaps we took over Bridal Market, we were able to rally our five favorites from the season. Keep scrolling (and keep your eyes peeled for when these beauties hit your local bridal salon!)
Michal Medina – Tali
This season was all about the “sexy” gown. Whether that meant a slit up to there, semi-sheer fabrics, or a neckline low enough to make your grandmother dizzy, it looks like sultry gowns are here to stay.
What we love about this Michal Medina gown is that it still allows for that sexy peek of skin at your sides and ribcage. Pro tip: if you’re a bride that’s a little wary of showing off her arms, the low armholes will give the illusion of slim, toned biceps.
Pas de Deux – Mathilde Top With Brianza Skirt
Rose gold isn’t just a ring trend! This Pas de Deux glitzy rose gold bustier and blush pink skirt is equal parts feminine and modern. It’s a stunning way to incorporate a bit of sparkle to your look without appearing over-the-top. Plus, that warm glow is sure to look flawless on a wide variety of skin tones.
Justin Alexander – 9878
Let’s get real: it’s hard for us to find a ball gown silhouette we don’t like. We especially can’t stop fawning over the Justin Alexander re-interpretation of the classic style, with the contrasting ribbon on the arm and the bejeweled belt.
The low neckline might seem scary at first, but we think the look would work on brides regardless of bust size. It offers plenty of coverage for brides that want to minimize their risk for a nip slip, while also showing off just enough to be sexy (yet totally tasteful!)
Peter Langner’s show was one of our favorites, with stunning porcelain flowers and princess-like silhouettes. The most jaw-dropping dress, for us, was a beautiful strapless ball gown with layers of whisper-soft tulle. The detailing on the skirt and bodice is what put this gown on our top 5 list: we’d be hard-pressed to find a bride that won’t find the style whimsical, beautiful and decidedly feminine.
Ines di Santo
While we definitely saw quite a few pops of color this bridal market, none could quite rival the drop-dead-gorgeous beauty of this Ines di Santo gown. While it might not be for the faint-hearted bride, it’s certainly the kind of show-stopping piece we remember for seasons to come.
