Start your countdown—Bridal Market is just four days away! Twice a year, the wedding world takes over New York City as dress designers debut new collections, and we’ll be there to document every moment. If you’re not already following us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, or Pinterest, get on that, stat—it’s the best way to get of-the-moment updates and see fresh-from-the-runway pictures as soon as we publish them. But since we can’t show you anything new until this weekend, we thought we’d kick off the week with our best guesses at the new stuff. Head over to our Fashion Ideas section to see seven trends we think will be gaining steam in the Fall 2014 collections—then let us know in the comments below with which details and designs you hope to see!

Bridal Market Recap: Trend Report {Part II}

Now that you’ve seen some of the best looks on the runway, here’s a look at the overall trends.  There were some obvious ones like lace and tulle dresses, and then some more subtle detailing such as Obi bows that after a few shows we started to see.  Here’s Part II of WeddingWire’s Bridal Market Trend Report:

Floral Details

About two years ago fabric flower embellishments took the bridal world by storm and this detail doesn’t seem to be going away any time soon.  This season designers went big, featuring large floral designs on skirts, one-shoulder necklines and at the waist.  For brides not looking for a such big embellishment there were also a number of wedding gowns with smaller floral details as well.

Now that you’ve seen some of the best looks on the runway, here’s a look at the overall trends.  There were some obvious ones like lace and tulle dresses, and then some more subtle detailing such as peplums and modesty.  Here’s Part I of WeddingWire’s Bridal Market Trend Report:

Tulle

Brides looking for that walking on a cloud feeling will have no shortage of wedding dresses made partly or completely of tulle.  From full ball gown skirts to pleated bodices, designers showed wedding dresses in a variety of silhouettes with this soft and delicate fabric.

Bridal Market Recap: The Dessy Group

Comprised of Alfred Sung, After Six, Dessy, Lela Rose Bridesmaids and Social Bridesmaids, The Dessy Group has the largest selection of stylish bridesmaid dresses in a rainbow of colors with coordinating bridal party accessories.

If you haven’t already tried it, Dessy and Pantone have a really cool inspiration board tool that will let you create dress boards for your wedding.

I picked one fabulous bridesmaid dress from each line to share with you with one caveat, that your bridesmaids will want to wear them again.  What do you think?  Could your girls wear any of these dresses again?

1 – One-shoulder or asymmetrical necklines are popular on the red carpet so your bridesmaids are sure to approve of this After Six bridesmaid dress.  The designer added a flutter sleeve, which I think is a nice added detail.
