Bridal Fashion Week April 2018

Bridal Fashion Week just wrapped up in New York City earlier this week where the Spring 2019 designer collections were unveiled. Beth Chapman, stylist , author, and owner of The White Dress by the Shore has shared some of her favorite trends to grace the runway this season!

“A bride’s wedding gown should not only be a reflection her wedding aesthetic, but it should reflect her personal style and who she is.  With the current trends in bridal, there TRULY is a gown for every bride. The silhouettes, fabrications and necklines shown during Spring 2019 New York Bridal Fashion Week were diverse” — Beth Chapman

Sheer Cover-Ups

Many designers showed coverage options on their runways.  This spanned from sheer capes, to capelets and boleros.  They were represented on both classic silhouettes as well as more avant garde options, like jumpsuits and shorts!

Clean and Classic

Many designers showed completely clean wedding gowns last season.  The difference this season was that many of them had sleeves. My favorite was the long sleeved version. To me, this is the perfect gown for a classic Fall or Winter wedding!

Textural Laces 

The other extreme shown on the runway was gowns with unique, textural laces.

Colorful Embroidery 

This daring new trend emerged this season.  Several designers took the embroidery trend one step further by introducing staturated color in ethnic inspired floral patterns.

Satin 

Satin is a traditional fabric that we have not seen in some time.  Being that matte crepes have been popular for several seasons, designers are swinging the pendulum and bringing back the sheen with luxurious satin fabrics.

V-Necks

V-necks continue to be the hot neckline of the season.  This neckline was represented in various depths from demure to plunging.

Captivating Beauty at The Chanler

Secret garden elegance meets refined vintage glamour for this styled shoot tucked away at The Chanler on the Newport Cliff Walk.

Rich with history, The Chanler embodies old world elegance with its opulent architecture and gilded décor. The back lawn with its vast ocean views was the perfect canvas for an elegant, garden-like display of floral extravagance. Forgoing the traditional rectangular trellis, Sayles Livingston and her team at Sayles Livingston Design covered a circular trellis in peonies, ranunculus, garden roses, sweet peas, hydrangea, lemon leaf, eucalyptus, and ferns creating a romantic setting for the ceremony site that overlooked the ocean. The soft, neutral palette allowed Beth Chapman of the White Dress by the Shore to style the bridal party in rich, jewel tones and sumptuous textures like fur a gold embossed bridal gown as a nod to the autumn season. The entrance to the back trellis was draped with stormy-gray linens laced with greenery evoking a secret garden-like vibe as you walked up the steps. Crystal chandeliers floated above a traditional wooden table that was draped with a shadow gray velvet runner topped with lush flora that cascaded down to the stone patio creating a look of effortless luxury.
