New York Bridal Fashion Week is a bi – annual event where designers come together to showcase their newest and most gorgeous bridal collections. This is a time when we get the opportunity to evidence what’s new and what probably showcases the most recent trends. And, here we are using our expertise to help brides- to-be find their dream wedding day gowns.
This year, we’re especially excited for the Spring 2024 collections as designers have seemingly continued to break the mold of
“traditional bridalwear,” further creating looks that are at once unexpected and inclusive for a range of bridal styles. But don’t worry, we aren’t keeping everything to ourselves.
Throughout the runway shows and presentations, designers acknowledged that many brides want more than one look for their wedding day, and offered ways that might be achieved without resorting to multiple dresses. Since bridal gowns can now be seen all over social media, brides are wanting something different that makes their wedding gown more unique. Matching boleros, detachable sleeves, and overskirts are quite popular, allowing brides to transform their look from ceremony to reception.
If you want to have a sneak peek at the looks set to be revealed this season, we’ve rounded up a preview of the gowns you’ll be able to see during Bridal Fashion Week and beyond. Keep reading to know all the deets.
