Delicate Sleeves
Over the last year, our designers have increasingly been showing gowns with sleeves, and this fall many collections showed softer options.

Classic with a Twist
We will forever love a classic gown…it is our bread and butter after all! Many of our designers
stayed true to their classic roots but added a more modern twist on a classic silhouette or fabric.

Lace alternatives, Floral Inspired
Designers are increasingly showing beautiful alternatives to lace, such as floral embroideries, embroidered organza, and three dimensional flowers. We are smitten!

Back interest
Designers continue to recognize that the front is just as important as the back! We saw many gowns that were just as beautiful in the front as they were in the back.

Off the shoulder
Many of our designers chose to create gowns that highlight a bride’s neck via off-the- shoulder necklines.

Light and Airy
Brides, rejoice! Many designers showed gowns that seemed to simply float down the runway. Brides want comfort and designers have responded by creating soft, flowing designs.

3. What will you be carrying in-store?

We have always been well known for carrying a classic, timeless gown and that remains true today. As trends evolve in the bridal world, I’m always careful to include them in a way that stays true to our roots. All of the trends you read about here will be incorporated into my selection in a manner that makes sense for our brides. My favorite trend from bridal market was the increased use of floral-inspired materials, from printed organza to three dimensional floral appliques. These are beautiful alternatives to lace while still evoking the romantic, timeless nature of lace.

Whimsical Love Story

Fresh florals and twinkling lights transform the Providence Public Library into a whimsical love story

Drawn to the architectural details, warm marble tones, the separate spaces for cocktails, dining, and dancing, and the in-house catering of Russell Morin Catering & Events, Nicole knew the Providence Public Library was the perfect venue for her wedding. “It was really helpful that Russell Morin appointed an event coordinator to help with the process. Alexandra was so helpful and went above and beyond for me,” Nicole said. The library already felt whimsy and romantic to Nicole so it was important to her that it was enhanced with the event décor and not overpowered by it. Twinkling trees from Exquisite Events created a grand entrance to the dance space while floral arrangements in blush and ivory hues and crawling greens adorned every surface making you feel as though you were in a secret garden. The mood was set for dancing & dining with lighting by Ormonde Productions. Guests feasted on the delicious offerings of Russell Morin Catering & Events followed by dancing to the beats of Victor Events.

Autumn means deep, rich colors and we have an undeniable passion for all things PLUM! This sophisticated hue is a great fall neutral because it can be accented with so many other colors. Here are some of our favorites…

1. What are the trends this season?

1.  Billowy Romantic Sleeves- we have seen sleeves for several seasons, but this season the trend was all about the bloussant sleeve with more fullness.

3.  Bridal Capes-  Several designers showed dramatic capes on the runway.  I love this trend as a modern alternative to a veil.

4.  Silhouette extremes- the barely there trend continues with plunging front and back necklines and plenty of sheer revealing silhouettes.  The other extreme was very conservative, very covered up silhouettes.  A key shape was the long sleeve high neck gown (aka: Princess Grace).

2. Which designer’s shows did you attend?

Ines de Santos, Reem Acra, Hayley Paige, Anne Barge, Amy Kuschel, Made with Love, Jenny Yoo, Theia, Carolina Herrera, Augusta Jones, Berta, and Romona Keveza

3. What is trending in the world of bridal accessories?

Accessories have gotten more delicate.  Earrings are smaller, headpieces are more light and airy and gold is the most popular metal.  Long dramatic veils with lace or embroidery are en vogue, and I couldn’t be happier!

4. Which trends do you feel will be most popular among brides?

I think the long sleeve gowns will be a refreshing change for brides, as well as the softer, more flowing silhouettes.  We also continued to see a lot of convertible options for brides this season, which provides them one look for the ceremony and another for the reception.  Brides love that concept because they can get two looks by adding a lace topper or an over skirt, but they don’t have to change their gown.
