We just returned from New York Bridal Market, and we’re both exhausted and exhilarated. As a team, we viewed over 70 collections, thousands of dresses (nearly 1,125 by our estimate!) and hundreds of accessories, and spotted some very clear wedding dress trends. So what was the biggest trend of the season? We’re calling it now…

Gold, silver, and everything in between! We loved the glamorous and regal, yet still totally wedding-appropriate and flattering look of metallic wedding gowns (and some bridesmaid styles too!). From grand ballgowns to slinky lace sheaths, rich golds and luminous silvers were shown on all silhouettes and gown styles. Check out our favorite metallic styles from the Fall 2014 New York Bridal Market in our special bridal market section, and be sure to check out all of the brand-new, hot-off-the-runway designer collections.

Theia - The White Collection by Theia is ideal for the bride who loves the feminine details of traditional wedding gowns, yet seeks a modern edge in form and function. Theia even designed a sequined and hand-embroidered sweatshirt for the bride that really wants to make a statement. We also saw gorgeous silk organza, delicate touches of gold, satin petals, and a ballgown with hidden pockets! Now, how genius is that?
