When shopping for a wedding dress, it’s important to consider a gown’s silhouette, details and style, but it’s essential to see how the dress moves. How will the gown look as you walk down the aisle? To help you out with this, we exclusively filmed 10 designer collections from the Fall 2014 New York Bridal Market at Pier 94. From Augusta Jones’ romantic and classic creations to Roz la Kelin‘s regal and flattering gowns, there’s truly something for everyone.

The most important criteria for choosing your wedding-day ensemble is that you feel comfortable in whatever look you choose, and that it suits your style. If a traditional wedding gown just isn’t for you, we love the new white bridal pant suits and outfits that several designers showcased this season – they still feel totally “bridal,” but it’s definitely a unique look. They’re tailored, flattering, and, yup, pretty darn sexy. They also make great “going away” outfits, or would look so chic at a city rehearsal dinner or engagement party. Check out our favorite bridal pant suits here, and be sure to check out our New York Bridal Market page for the newest wedding dresses, and trend reports. And let us know in the comments: Would you wear a bridal pant suit?

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.
