It really is amazing to us how our designers come up with new and inventive ways to drape luscious laces and fabulous fabrics to create the designs that they do. And each season they get better and better and better.
We have to say that this year our designers left the girls from The White Room in awe!!!

Today’s fashion forward brides are expecting more from a wedding gown than sweetheart necklines and lace, and WOW did this season’s runway shows deliver. While taking in the runway shows this past April, we made note of the trends that we saw over and over. Check out some of our favorites:

OFF THE SHOULDER

The off-the-shoulder style gives you the long neckline of a strapless dress, but adds something extra special to the look. They can also give you a bit more coverage. With some styles including the equally trendy sleeves, you can keep your arms covered without feeling overwhelmed. This extra bit of coverage is particularly good for an autumn or winter wedding, where you might want a bit of extra warmth.

ILLUSION NECKLINES

Illusion necklines are a lovely and ladylike vintage detail and we were thrilled to see them make such a comeback on the runway. Whether you want to make a bold statement with sparkles and lace, or a subtle one with all sheer silks and wispy cotton candy confection, there is sure to be one that is just right for you. Plus they offer more coverage than the ever popular strapless dress! So if you are in the market for something delightfully demure, but don’t quite want sleeves (another hot look we’ll get to soon), look no further.

OVER-SKIRTS

Some brides love to embrace more than one look on their wedding day. The over-skirt came on strong at this season’s runway shows. These ethereal overlay wrap skirts are made of light, sheer fabrics that create a free-flowing, floaty silhouette of a classic wedding dress. And because most of them are tied at the waist, they’re an easy piece to remove when it’s time to transition into party mode.

SLEEVES

There are plenty of variations of the sleeved wedding dress, but don’t feel like you have to copy Kate’s style. While lace sleeves are still a big hit among designers, there are may different styles that were shown; cap sleeves, 3/4 length and full lace sleeves. And remember if you see a gown you love and it’s shown with cap sleeves, this does not mean that it can not be made for you with long sleeves – so keep an open mind.

DRAMATIC BACKS

Something which has never changed and sure to never change is the brides commitment to looking fabulous on her big day. However in recent years couture designers have emerged in great number attempting to win over the brides admiration and give them something unique and individual while remaining pretty and elegant. One of the biggest trends that we saw at New York Bridal Week was the dramatic backs. Designers have been developing this style over the past few years, but it is looking like 2015 and 2016 will not only be about what a bride looks like from the front, but from the back too!!! Check out some of our favorites from market.
