6 New Aisle-Worthy Wedding Dress Trends from Bridal Fashion Week

Another New York Bridal Fashion Week has come and gone, and life is back to its normal—slightly less glamorous—pace. But, while all the beautiful wedding gowns have been returned to their hangers, the trends are here to stay… including those sparkly selfie-sticks that made a serious splash this season!

And those blinged out gadgets weren’t the only show-stealers on the runway this year. Here are six of the best aisle-worth trends we spotted this season:

1. The Detachable Skirt

Torn between a beautiful ball gown and a figure-hugging silhouette? Hello, detachable skirts! Wow at your ceremony in a princess gown then seamlessly shed the skirt for the reception, revealing a sleek pant suit or LWD.

2. Something Blue

While Monique Lhuillier debuted a blue stunner at her show last April, the hue hit the runways hard this season. Bold brides will love these colorful beauties in azure, cornflower, and other sweet shades.

3. Enchanting Florals

Florals are having a major moment—from intricate embroidered detailing, to stunning 3D blooms, to beautiful hand-painted watercolor flowers. Oh, and they’re everywhere—adorning necklines, wrapped into braids, and flowing from full skirts.

4. Illusion Silhouettes

It’s not just for backs and necklines anymore (although designers still seem to be loving those looks, too)… Now, brides willing to get a bit more risqué on the big day can find illusion fabrics incorporated into bodices and skirts.

5. Stylish Sleeves

It’s time to step-up your sleeve game, brides! This season, many designers traded in ever-so-popular strapless silhouettes for long sleeves in illusion lace, chic off-the-shoulder styles, and more. And we love the way a detailed sleeve seriously heightens a gown.

6. Heavenly High-Low Skirts

We’re all about any trend that puts your killer wedding day heels (and legs) on display. Shoe-lovers will fall hard for this unique look, and everyone will appreciate the low-risk of tripping in this stunning skirt style!
