NYC Bridal Market Spring 2013 : Top Trends From Bridal Fashion Week

As many of you fashion lovers know, Spring 2013 Bridal Market was in full swing last weekend. I couldn’t resist but sharing a little recap of the biggest trends on the runways of Bridal Fashion Week.

Trend #1: Whipped, Frothy Skirts
Airy and ethereal, yet dramatic skirts floated down the runways pumping up the volume this season. {Dresses: Amsale Spring 2013 | Amsale Spring 2013 | Oscar De La Renta Spring 2013}
Trend #2: Cap-Sleeves
Who says strapless is queen? Since the whole fashion world is crazy about vintage these days, it is no wonder that vintage styles have been seen in today’s wedding dresses again and again. Cap sleeve is just one of the comebacks. {Dresses: Reem Acra Spring 2013 | Christos Spring 2013}

Trend #3: Big, Bold Embellishments
For the brides who subscribe to the “bigger is better” mantra, bridal designers are creating bold confections. Peplum skirts, embellished ribbon oversized bows and floral details stood out on the runways. {Dresses: Reem Acra Spring 2013 | Amsale Spring 2013 | Ines Di Santo Spring 2013}
Trend #4: Crystal and Ice
Fabrics covered in micro-crystals that create the shimmer of ice were rocking the runways….the perfect choice for the winter bride. {Dresses: Monique Lhuillier Spring 2013 | Reem Acra Spring 2013}
Trend #5: Lace
When it comes to classic, the lace has it. From hand-beaded to fluted-skirt to sleeved bodice a-la Kate Middleton, designers showed that lace still has a hold on runways and wedding aisles alike. {Dresses: Keneth Pool Spring 2013 | Oscar De La Renta Spring 2013 | Amsale Spring 2013}
Trend #6: One-Shoulder
One of the hottest bridal dress trends in 2012 is the one-shoulder wedding dress. Imagine an elegant and classic Grecian goddess look. These dresses are quite regal, not to mention they are gracing the red carpet on today’s hottest celebrities. {Dresses: Amsale Spring 2013 | Monique Lhuillier Spring 2013}
Trend #7: Sassy and Short 
While, some brides are choosing to wear short, fun second wedding dress, many brides have been simply  fetching the traditional floor-length gowns in favor of shorter, flirtier pieces. This season most designers included in their collections some sassy short dresses that would be perfect for partying all night long. {Dresses: Amsale Spring 2013 | Ines Di Santo Spring 2013}

Trend #8: Red
Inspired by the traditional Chinese wedding colour palette and the celebration of love, top designers like Romona Keveza, Oscar De La Renta and Vera Wang showcased bridal gowns all dripping in the boldest, most luxurious red hues. {Dresses: Vera Wang Spring 2013 | Romona Keveza Spring 2013 | Oscar De La Renta Spring 2013}
