This past weekend’s New York Bridal Market was, in a word, fantastic! We are so in love with the newest gowns from all of our favorite designers. These trends are H-O-T and we could not be more excited to share them with you all!
Overall, there seems to be a general theme of sexiness: low necklines, low back, high slits, crop tops, cut outs and illusion lace. It’s all enough to get a groom’s heart racing! Here are some specifics:
It’s a daring, how-low-can-you-go style, meant for the gutsy bride who is not afraid of showing a little décolletage.
Yes. Still. There is something so sensual yet elegant about a women’s back, and these gowns highlight them in breathtaking ways.
Color is still very prevalent and not just in pinks and blushes. While we are still noticing soft pinks, we’re also seeing more blues and greens, which are just magnificent.
Designers are incorporating large beads, encrusted jewels and beaded fringe and the effect is bold, confident and daring!

Cutouts and Crop Tops
In keeping with the trend of showing a little more skin, designers are playing peekaboo with cutouts and crop tops.
Short and Sweet
A little more casual and a lot more sassy, shorter gowns are definitely gaining in popularity. And while some brides may not opt for them for their actual ceremony, these short little numbers still make a stylish statement for a get-away or send-off dress!
Elegant sleeves are holding strong as a trend. They’re especially spectacular in the illusion or lace variety, and these are simply lovely.
Okay, ladies, what do you think? What trends send you over the moon?!
Wowza! In New York, we’ve taken in more fabulous gowns than you can shake a bouquet at, and we’re so excited to show you the latest designs from some of our favorite designers!
Feminine with an edge, Hayley Paige gowns are fresh, lively and confident. And doesn’t she prove it with this phenomenal new collection featuring leather, studs, fringe and chevron?! And yes, we did say leather, studs and fringe!
Lazaro is a master of the craft of extraordinary bridal design, and his gowns are timeless in their elegance. The designer is known for his impeccable fit, dramatic silhouettes and glamorous collections featuring exquisite beading and embroidery. Priding himself on the ability to design for any bride, Lazaro features everything from slender silhouettes to ball gowns and styles that range from simple to extravagant.

Claire is known for her romantic, feminine gowns. She loves lace and color and is not afraid to use them. And if you love the dramatic backs she is fond of, you will adore these stunning new gowns.
Luxe fabrics, detailed beading and flattering silhouettes are hallmarks of the beautiful gowns from Watters. Marrying the freshest looks with the highest quality and offering it to brides at an affordable price point is what has made Watters one of the most sought-after bridal designers for nearly 30 years. Their latest collection, featuring lots of intricate beadwork, flowy fabrics and lace, reminds us why brides love them so.
Sooooo, you might have heard…there is a little football game at the Cotton Bowl Stadium this weekend that some people think is kind of a big deal. As Big D gears up for Saturday’s Red River Showdown (the rivalry game between Texas and OU, just in case you’re not from around these here parts), we can’t help but get caught up in the fondness many folks have for their alma mater. With so many couples meeting while in college, it’s no wonder that they would want to include in their wedding day plans a nod to the place where they fell in love. At Weddings by StarDust, we have many wedding planning clients that want to somehow incorporate that college pride in their wedding day, so we thought we’d share a few fun ways we’ve woven school spirit into their design.
Both TCU alums, Drew wrote for the school paper while Sawyer was a TCU baton twirler, so they each had a deep love for the university. So much so that Super Frog was a featured guest at their beautiful Fort Worth Club celebration.
Lauren and Troy wanted to include subtle elements highlighting their beloved Auburn in their understated, elegant Ashton Gardens wedding. We accomplished that with their groom’s cake, table signs and Auburn-inspired pompoms for their send-off.
And in what is undoubtedly one of our favorite inclusions of college pride, UT alum Glenn and Texas Tech grad/cheerleader had a lot of fun with a “house divided” element at their gorgeous Crescent Hotel celebration. This included Andrea interrupting the Texas Fight Song by cheering with her former squadmates and stunting in her wedding gown! Glenn was a great sport about it, taking the “happy wife, happy life” approach to this good-natured ribbing!
We hope these have put a smile on your face this morning and that your team wins this weekend! Any of you lovely brides planning to weave some school spirit into your wedding day design?
