Carines Bridal Atelier Logo your aisle is our runway

Every season, we at Carine’s Bridal Atelier look forward to attending Bridal Fashion Week in New York. It’s amazing to be able see all the designers and their incredible shows. One thing we always love doing is spotting trends in the new collections. When you spend all day around wedding dresses, you get excited to see new ideas – especially when you can start visualizing different types of brides in them. A trend that was all over the runway this season was high necklines. While there were some that were simple bateau necks, we noticed that a lot of designers played around with the traditionally conservative look, adding lace, beading, and cut-outs. Below are some of our favorite high-necked dresses from this season:

We’re in NYC for New York Bridal Fashion Week where our favorite designers are debuting their new collections for 2017. We started the day at the BERTA show. Wow! Once again, their gowns blew us away. From the handcrafted lace and plunging necklines to the beading, netting and illusions – the detail are just beautiful.

Well, we are back from Bridal Market in New York! As with every season, there is a lot to take in, but we made sure to take note of every trend and report back to our brides! So, here is your bridal fashion breakdown for spring 2016. The top 5 trends are…

Crop Top

For brides looking for something a little more funky, the crop top effect can be a fun and playful look. The key to pulling of this trend is balance, not too low cut and a flowing shape. Just a hint of skin keeps the feel light and lovely.

Geometric and Linear Embroidery 

Embroidery has been popular for a few seasons now, but this market we noticed very unique embellishments, a little more angular and linear. What’s great about this trend is that geometric embroidery can work on long slinky gowns or full skirts.

Cut Outs

In recent seasons we’ve seen cut-outs featured by a sample of designers. However, this market it seems as though the idea of cut-outs was fully embraced. Between ball gowns and sleek silhouettes the edgy trend made a cameo more than a few times.

Half Overskirts

Tulle skirts are such a classic bridal look and brides have always loved them. The idea of an overskirt is great because it provides versatility to brides wanting to switch their look. While providing brides the same flexibility as a full overskirt, the half over skirt gives brides more of a retro look, think Audrey Hepburn in Sabrina… who could forget that iconic gown???

Off the Shoulder

This is such a classic neckline and we are so happy to see it getting attention again! The neckline is not ideal for everyone but when it works, it works. The downside to the off the shoulder cut is that it restricts arm movement, however we have seen in the past that some brides don’t mind, as long as they like the look!
