Our bride Jackie and her husband Fletcher’s love story is just too cute, as we described in our newsletter this month, and we can’t get over how charming their wedding was either! The couple wed on Bald Head Island in North Carolina here is a peek into their special day…
Well, we are back from Bridal Market in New York! As with every season, there is a lot to take in, but we made sure to take note of every trend and report back to our brides! So, here is your bridal fashion breakdown for spring 2016. The top 5 trends are…
For brides looking for something a little more funky, the crop top effect can be a fun and playful look. The key to pulling of this trend is balance, not too low cut and a flowing shape. Just a hint of skin keeps the feel light and lovely.
Geometric and Linear Embroidery
Embroidery has been popular for a few seasons now, but this market we noticed very unique embellishments, a little more angular and linear. What’s great about this trend is that geometric embroidery can work on long slinky gowns or full skirts.
In recent seasons we’ve seen cut-outs featured by a sample of designers. However, this market it seems as though the idea of cut-outs was fully embraced. Between ball gowns and sleek silhouettes the edgy trend made a cameo more than a few times.
Tulle skirts are such a classic bridal look and brides have always loved them. The idea of an overskirt is great because it provides versatility to brides wanting to switch their look. While providing brides the same flexibility as a full overskirt, the half over skirt gives brides more of a retro look, think Audrey Hepburn in Sabrina… who could forget that iconic gown???
Off the Shoulder
This is such a classic neckline and we are so happy to see it getting attention again! The neckline is not ideal for everyone but when it works, it works. The downside to the off the shoulder cut is that it restricts arm movement, however we have seen in the past that some brides don’t mind, as long as they like the look!

We visited several of our favorite designers today and we definitely noticed some trends for the fall 2015 season. Today we saw trends ranging from ball gowns, exaggerated drop waists, blouson tops. There were ven some versatile overskirts for brides that want to change their look. What do you think?!…
What better way to kick off a week-end full of bridal festivities than a fashion show?! Our market season started with the Rivini runway presentation and Rita Vinieris definitely did not disappoint. Her collection this season featured something for everyone. From clean and sleek, to modern and structured, even full and romantic, the Rivini collection offered a range of styles for every type of bride. Here are some of our top looks…
For her spring 2015 collection, designer Rita Vinieris looked to photographs for inspiration. The contrast between light and dark shadows laid the foundation for the multidimensional fabrics used for her designs.
The bridal trends for the spring 2015 season featured lace, embroidery, low necklines, and plunging back details. The Rivini collection melded lace and organza fabrics to create a light and romantic take on the classic lace look, while the use of embroidery was often left to the bodices of gowns, as a contrast against a dramatic skirt. There were also several exaggerated necklines and backs down the runway, each offering a sleek aura for a more modern bride.
Our Rivini trunk show will be running September 4th through 6th. To schedule an appointment simply call 202 965-4696 or email email@example.com.
Here are some of our favorite examples of Rivini’s take on the spring 2015 bridal trends…
