what is bridal market? a preview of the fall 2014 bridal market

If you read wedding blogs and follow us on social media you’ve probably been seeing a lot of talk of “Bridal Market.” But a lot of you are probably wondering, wtf IS that? What is bridal market? Well, it’s like fashion week for bridal (also in NYC), and it is when we get a look at the bridal collections of all of the major wedding designers, as well as veils, accessories, and other bridal pretties. Perhaps you remember seeing my post and instagrams from last spring’s bridal market? I literally sat between Colin Cowie and Randy Fenoli front row at Monique Lhuiller, and met Darcy Miller and other icons & favorites. It was every wedding-lover’s dream come true.

Since NY bridal market happens twice a year, spring and fall, and since I’m based in Los Angeles I can’t always be there. But I’m lucky that all of the designers send the photos of their looks straight from the runway so I can swoon over them for hours  share them with you!

Above is just a peek at some of my favorites collections that I’ll be sharing with you in full throughout the week. I’ll also be pinning them to my Bridal Market 2014 Pinterest Board. Enjoy!
