Hello, my dears! Marissa and I spent three marvelous days galavanting around the city and we are so, so, SO thrilled to bring you the best of the best from Bridal Market! Now, of course we can’t fit all of the goodness into one post, so you are going to come on back this afternoon (and tomorrow and Friday) for many more dream dresses. Fabulous photographer Ashley Minette went along for the ride on Saturday to capture our adventures and Mr. Trent Bailey delighted us with his photographic genius on Sunday and Monday.
We flew in to NYC super, super early Saturday morning and went directly to our first show of the day, Claire Pettibone. It was my very first fashion show ever (!!!) and I was immediately floored by Claire Pettibone’s feminine and romantic gowns. I love the flowing silhouettes and whimsical feel, don’t you?
We also ran into some of our wonderful friends: Christy from Junebug Weddings, Vane of Brooklyn Bride, Amanda from Ruffled, Jackie from Merci New York, Cathleya of Wedding Bee and Jill from The Blogworthy Bride. Definitely not a bad way to start off the day!
Next up, we hailed a cab (well… attempted to hail a cab) and made our way over to EZ Studios for Christos. The Christos collection was full of organza and flowers (yes, please!). I was particularly loving the Anais (second gown pictured below) with it’s full skirt and hand-beaded flowers. We also met up with the always-dashing Randy Fenoli of Kleinfeld Bridal and Say Yes to the Dress. We heart you, Randy!
We stayed at EZ Studios for Kenneth Pool. I was swooning over the drama and luxuriousness of these gowns. Oh, the glamour! The ruffles!

Saturday was a whirlwind, y’all, and we aren’t done yet! We’ll be back with more goodness from Saturday’s shows this afternoon!
Lots of love from your Bridal Market correspondents,
Whitney and Marissa
