Real Sealed With A Kiss Bride: Lorena and Matt

Our bride Lorena and her new husband Matt were married on December 10, 2016 at Old Metropolitan Hall.

The dress Lorena chose for her big day was a design by Casablanca Bridal. When the dress first arrived to our store she happened to see a picture we posted of it on our Facebook page, and she thought it could be the “one.” She contacted us and set up an appointment to try it on, and not long after that she said yes to the dress.

Lorena was a blast to work with, and we’re so glad that her big day was as wonderful as she’d hoped. Congrats again Lorena and Matt!

Fall Market 2016 Recap

img_2683

It’s been a couple weeks since our trip to NYC for Fall Bridal Market, and we’ve finally recovered from the whirlwind of a trip it was. We saw and did so much during the trip, and we were impressed by what designers had out on the runway this season. Here are a few of the highlights!

Checking out the latest trends.

Sheer details have been showing up on the runways more and more, and this season was no exception. Many designers used sheer cut outs and sheer backs in their designs, while others opted to push the limit and showcase designs that were mostly sheer.

Floral prints have also been on the rise over the last couple years, and we love it! Many brides are embracing colors and prints on their wedding gowns so it’s great to see that designers are answering the call.

Seeing a brand new line.

One of our favorite designers, Callie Tien of Modern Trousseau, debuted her new collection–Muse. These gowns were haute couture at its best.

We loved the high end fabrics she used in her designs, especially the lace. The silhouettes were dramatic, and brides who want to make a statement with their wedding gown are sure to fall in love with these gowns.

 

Catching up with the designers.

While the runway shows are fun to watch, often our favorite part of the market experience is talking to the designers–it gives us a chance  to find out how the new collection came about and what they’re working on next.

Paula of Paula Varsalona Bridal is always up to something–in addition to designing she teaches at the Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC and regularly blogs for bridalpulse.com. We had a great time hearing about her current endeavors, and we just can’t believe she found the time to create such a gorgeous collection amidst everything else she does. Her new line is a mix of “bohemian bliss” and “city chic,” and every bride is sure to find a gown she loves in the collection.

Anny Lin Bridal

We’re always excited to catch up with Anny Lin, and her new collection did not disappoint! We always expect her gowns to have dramatic silhouettes and gorgeous details, but we were still in awe at how beautiful many of these designs were. Her new line featured gowns with sheer details, prints, 3-D flowers and lots of beads!

 

Overall we had a great time at market, and we are really excited about all the new designs we’ve selected to stock in our boutique. The worst part is having to wait for all our gorgeous new samples to arrive in store, but they are always worth the wait!
