Brides-to-be, if you’re planning to get hitched this spring, then you’ll surely need a dress to match that vision. Lucky for you, Selina Howard from Vainglorious Brides was on the ground in New York sussing out the need-to-see shows from New York Bridal Fashion Week for Wedded Wonderland.
Designers including Naeem Khan, Berta Bridal and Ines Di Santo are showing gorgeous numbers that would make any woman feel like a modern-day princess. From the classic strapless sweetheart-neck silhouettes to modern, playful suits embroidered in opulent designs, we see a trend forming for the upcoming season. Check out the latest wedding gowns straight from the New York runway and find your favourite trend. (We love them all!)
The Final Cut
The Berta Bridal collection was a true mix of styles from romantic column-cut lace dresses to plunging necklines and off-the-shoulder embroidery. Hand-embellished gowns created a playful touch, not to mention a flirty take on the traditional bride. With a glitzy patterned underlay for a peekaboo flash of sparkle, could a cut ‘here or there’ be the perfect wedding ensemble?
This season was a dance for Ines Di Santo who took wedding dress designs to a fashionable new world. Lavish elements such as sweeping capes and oversized bows made a statement, as did sweetheart bodices and barely-there straps that added a little romance. The showstopper? ‘Woman in red’ reigned supreme, further enhancing the sweetheart neckline for a luscious spring affair.

Romance was in the air for bridal (and Marchesa’s ruffles!). With the inclusion of lace and embroideries, the use of a black belt puts a slight twist on the traditional look. Embellished open-back gowns and a dropped-waist bodice were also the eye-catching details throughout the collection, but a sleek waist-belt can elevate each silhouette into a truly enchanting creation.
The Elizabethan Age Cometh
You’ve heard the phrase, ‘crème de la crème’. Well, it seems Naeem Khan earned the exact title at Bridal Fashion Week. These gorgeous options, which included long-sleeve gowns and an abundance of pearls that are ultra-elegant and regal, are perfect for the bride who wants a timeless look. All across the world – from renaissance England to the Tudor period – when it comes to the Elizabethan age, it’s about ‘antique luxury’.

Play for Playsuits
The Oscar de la Renta show opened up to new ideas on light and delicate bridal looks using floral lace and silk tulle with jasmine embroidery. The modernist suits with silver sequin corsets and illusion necklines to tease skin in a tasteful way were the standouts. To further knock out the idea of a traditional bride, a white jacket paired with straight-lined jogger pants accessorised with pointed-heels suddenly became a spring hit, as well as floral corset, too.
A Touch of Black
Vera Wang’s spring bridal lineup featured light empire dresses, capes, and intriguing sleeve details. From ivory tulle, Chantilly lace, and a ballgown or two, Wang worked them in a modernist way with the addition of luxurious black elements. Every bride adores an artful silhouette, and Vera’s ‘gothic bohemian’ trend might take Jane Austen’s peasant gown to a whole new level.
