We are very excited about the exclusive, private runway videos we shot at Bridal Week in New York!  Not only do these videos enhance the exquisiteness of each gown, but it allows you to see how the dress moves; something that is very important to take note of for a garment you’ll be in for five or more hours.

Along with each private runway video, we had the pleasure of interviewing the designer and getting their point of view on their Spring 2013 collection. Each dress was created with a purpose, and we loved hearing the inspiration behind each gown.

The Roaring ‘20s

The upcoming Leo DiCaprio film must be inspiring designers, because a number of looks look like they could have been taken right out of The Great Gatsby. These Art Deco-inspired wedding gowns adorned figure-flattering gowns with delicate metallic beading and embroidery at the waist, neckline and back.

Take this Jenny Packham stunner (left) with a jewel-encrusted halter neckline and fan like beaded applique at the waist. The “pull” in the fabric creates soft lines to enhance an hourglass figure.

Probably one of the most eye-catching backs of the season is on this dress by Elizabeth Fillmore (center), who described her collection as 1930s inspired. The butterfly design featured here is so unexpected, quite elegant and truly enchanting. It also creates a portrait or keyhole shape, allowing brides to show off a sexy, toned back.

Editor’s Note: Are you a fan of butterflies? Check out the latest Aruna Seth bridal collection with crystal butterflies embellishing the toes. In addition to wedding-day shoes for the bride, bridesmaids and moms are sure to find a pair to wear with their dress. The designer offers 50 colors from pastels to brights in a variety of heel heights.

Using both metallic thread and beads, Reem Acra (right) adds panache to the sheer V-neckline of this gorgeous sophisticated gown. The pattern continues from the bodice onto the capped sleeves. To complete the Art Deco theme, the Acra accessorized with a pleated tulle veil that covered the sat on the top of the head and was held in place by a beaded band.

Go for Gold!

Maybe it was the 2012 Summer Olympics that inspired designers, because gold (and silver too) made their mark on the bridal runway this week. Metallic embellishments debuted a few seasons ago but this time around they have a beautiful boldness to them.

A very regal color, gold gives a simple white dress the va-va-va-voom factor the glam girl is looking for. If you’re shopping in the non-white dress market (or for a fabulous number for your reception) you’ll find all gold gowns that will surely have all head’s turning.

Marchesa’s majestic ball gown with a full tulle skirt is paired with a structured strapless bodice featuring an ornate gold pattern.

This red-carpet worthy shimmering metallic gold Ines Di Santo gown is as sexy as it gets, with a thigh-high slit in the skirt and a one-shoulder neckline.

You can barely see it but this Reem Acra ball gown with elaborate gold embroidery has an illusion neckline with a high crew neck. The gold pattern continues to the edge of the tulle, creating a capped sleeve unlike any we’ve seen on the runway, and the result is simple stunning.

Barely There

Strapless is still the most popular neckline but coming in at a close second is the illusion neckline. Brides who want something revealing but don’t want to worry about pulling the bodice of their dress up throughout the night will love the creative ways designers are using lace and embellishing tulle to add modesty or glamour to a wedding dress.

The three examples shown here are all sleeveless gowns, but an illusion neckline can lead into off-the-shoulder, capped or even long sleeves, usually made of the same see-through fabric: lace, tulle, or net.

Here are three examples of how an illusion neckline can be blinged out or understated:

Jenny Packham, known for her vintage-inspired looks, and dressing Catherine Duchess of Cambridge, placed crystals over sheer netting to create the illusion that the bride is wearing three necklaces with her wedding gown.

Ines Di Santo appliqued a delicate lace with fabric flowers dotted with crystals, continuing the floral embellishment theme on this blush colored ball gown.

For a simple and elegant look, Christos placed lace along the shoulder and crew neckline made of tulle.

The Sexiest of Silhouettes

Posted by Bridal Market on Oct 16, 2012

Don’t be afraid to show off your curves girls! A mermaid silhouette will hug you in all the right places, and if you don’t have curves they’ll create them for you. We know what you’re thinking: Is a mermaid gown limited to a black-tie wedding? Not at all!

Lace, satin and tulle are a few of the fabrics you can choose from. And don’t forget the embellishments! Beading, crystals, florals — designers have added accents of all sorts to draw the eye of your groom to your best assets.

Here are three variations on the mermaid silhouette:

Evening and black-tie affairs will work well for a gown with shine and shimmer, like this show stopper from Kenneth Pool. The satin draped gown has jewel-encrusted straps and an asymmetrical slit in the skirt revealing a pouf of tulle exploding from beneath.

For a daytime or less formal event slip into a dress that looks and feels lighter like this one from Legends by Romona Keveza. The slip-like lace gown has an off-the-shoulder capped sleeve and beaded “belt” at the waist. (Click here to find out where to find the season’s best bridal belts!)

Vera Wang’s lace mermaid gown features bias organza and lace flange details accented by crystal and pearl embroidery at the hip.
