Bridal Fashion Week Collections

Here is a closer look at collections from the heavy hitters in the bridal industry. First up, the one making all the news. 

I love it. Now I'm not going to lie, I gave Vera a hard time last year with her black and white collection. I wasn't a big fan. But I think she totally redeemed herself. In person, the structure and fabric of these dresses was superb. Even if you aren't a fan of the pink, any of these dresses would look amazing on you guys in ivory.

This year, Monique's collection featured tons of simple short dresses. She also had many vintage sheath dresses along with her signature textured ball gowns. It was definitely a return to elegance and glamour.

While I think the 'wow-factor' may have been missing this season, there are options for every type of bride and their various personal styles.

Oscar de la Renta may have stuck with simple designs, but to me his style never gets old. Classic and timeless never goes out of style. I may be a bit partial too, since he was always my Nonna's favorite designer!

Claire Pettibone is always a go-to for our vintage brides. I do like how she played with color this season. Those subtle colored flower petals are just the right touch for those who can pull off this rustic look.

Marchesa is known for their use of chiffon and appliques in both bridal and on the red carpet. I always feel their dresses have an airy elegance about them. While there may not have been many jaw droppers in this collection, I am a big fan of their flirty short dresses.
