We asked our readers to submit their “wedding dress wish lists” and we went on the hunt at New York Bridal Market to find their dream dress. BellaKFaye commented with the following request:
I would love to see some asymmetrical, A-line gowns with totally unique details that don’t include feathers! Maybe strapless with a sweetheart neckline, or something with straps and a gorgeous back. I’ve been looking for dresses since my engagement and have yet to find something that’s both unique and show-stopping without being gaudy or too couture. Please help!
Well, BellaKFaye, there weren’t as many asymmetrical hemlines this season as we saw during October Bridal Market, there were several styles that we can point you to. All of these feature unique details (and no feathers!) – the Jenny Lee has a feminine ruffled skirt, the Rafael Cennamo features an exaggerated bow detail and gorgeous draped back, the Reem Acra has stunning sparkle on the bodice, and the Carolina Herrera’s scalloped skirt is a sweet touch.

Pier 92 was the hub of this season’s New York Bridal Market, full of exciting new wedding gowns, bridesmaid dresses, and accessories. It was so much fun to check out the new collections from mainstays and brand-new design houses. Check out just a sampling of the collections that showed at Pier 92 here:
Bari Jay Bridesmaid Dresses: Love the rainbow of colors in this bridesmaid collection. Our favorites? The black lace peplum mini, the beach-worthy multicolor gown, and the on-trend chartreuse.
Berta Wedding Dresses: These wedding dresses hug the figure in all the right places. It’s definitely a sexy collection, but totally feminine at the same time.
Ivy & Aster Wedding Dresses: We loved how whimsical Ivy & Aster’s dresses are. From a textured tea-length style to a black-and-white feathered mini to a patterned romantic gown, lots of unique styles here.
Olia Zavozina Wedding Dresses: This collection features a mix of form-fitting, glam gowns, and more demure styles. We all swooned over the pink gown featured above.
