On Friday, our editors spent the day at Pier 94 drooling over gorgeous wedding gowns and sparkling accessories from different designers. All the while, our fashion gurus were jetting from show to show across the Big Apple. Want to get in on all the action? You totally can! Links to our editor’s recaps follow below:
Kim’s Recap – Kim spent the day at Pier 94, the hub of Bridal Market. Literally! Check out her recap for gems like a crystal-edged veil by Ariel Jennifer Taub, an Olia Zavozina long-sleeved lace wedding gown Kate Middleton would LOVE, and Gatsby-inspired bridal sashes by Ossai.
Leeor’s Recap – Leeor’s recap includes some surprising fashion risks! Case in point: an all-pink collection by Vera Wang, crown veils on Lazaro’s heiress models, pantsuits from Alfred Angelo (so cool), and 60′s-inspired detailing from Temperley London.

Well, it’s that time of year again! In just a few short days, we’ll be heading up to New York City to see the newest designer wedding dresses at Bridal Market. So to get ready for the biggest event in bridal fashion, we thought it would be wise to take a look back at our favorite wedding dresses from last season – the styles that really wowed us. Two of our editors’ personal faves are pictured above: a pink textured rosette A-line gown by Olia Zavozina, and a romantic long-sleeved gown with a plunging neckline and body-hugging silhouette by Berta. Both of these gorgeous gowns were photographed at Pier 94, the hub of New York Bridal Market.

While the show officially premieres tomorrow at 10pm EST, there’s a sneak peek airing at 10pm EST tonight on TLC. And – lucky us! – we have an exclusive clip of the show to share with you.
