While a bit quieter than the fashion weeks that preceded it, Bridal Fashion Week wrapped up earlier this week in New York. Though spring is often credited as being wedding season, let us assure you that matrimony is on the mind following the collections that came down the runway this fall, especially with a slew of new ideas that’ll appeal to the nontraditional bride-to-be.
The latest wedding day style ideas speak to some of the biggest of-the-moment trends, such as statement sleeves (both in length and volume), elements of classic tailoring (especially appealing to the bride who prefers pants), and lots of colors, the very least of which includes something blue. And though timeless elements of bridal design can still be found in spades, it’s the convention-challenging styles and unexpected details we most appreciate.
Ahead, peruse all the unique new styles we spotted at Bridal Fashion Week that will surely make their way down many aisles in the years to come.
