Why Walk When You Can Strut?!

I happened to be in NYC during fashion week this year and caught a glimpse of the excitement and glamor as Dave and I literally (and accidentally) walked right into a gaggle of models, famous people we didn’t know in ridiculous outfits and paparazzi following a show at the New York Public Library in Bryant Park.  This was pretty exciting stuff for us rarely having the pesky problem of paparazzi here in Saratoga! 🙂  Well our little  run in with the runway got me pumped for the new bridal fashions for Spring/Summer AND (bonus!) I got to catch some of the latest trends at the City Center this past Sunday during their annual Bridal Expo and Fashion Show.

There were a ton of flirty, fun & colorful bridesmaids dresses that I loved!  It was all about color and sparkle for the bridesmaids.  One of my favorites from Danielle’s Bridal Boutique was this gem from Bill Levkoff:

I loved the way it was styled at the show-the model wore her hair up with a big white flower off to the side.  It looked spectacular and really popped against the red!

There were a couple of trends for the bride showcased by Lily Saratoga-one of which was the adorable retro look like this dress from Rinella de Fina called “Jessica”:

It was paired with a pair of cute red heels at the show and a chapel length veil-fabulous.

Another great trend…pockets!!!  Hidden in the folds of the fabric you would never even know they were there on this “Maeve” design by Vineyard Collection:

The always amazing Jim Hjelm was respresented by Lily Bridal with design #8958-a breath taking slim fitting v-neck with delicate alecon lace with a lush mocha silk taffeta sash. Looking at my notes from the show I had just written “Yum” in the margin!
