Welcome back to day two of Bridal Market! If you missed parts one and two of our recaps, find them here and here. We’re so grateful to Briana of Divine Light Photography for all of these gorgeous images!
After leaving the Liancarlo showroom, we grabbed a quick lunch (which we were very excited about, having eaten trail mix in a taxi for lunch the day before!) and headed to the Piers for the Badgley Mischka show. We’re already big fans of Badgley Mischka shoes–I even just bought a pair for my own wedding next year–so seeing their gowns was a treat. The styling was a little high fashion for our tastes, but with simpler hair and makeup, many of the gowns would be just right for Southern belle brides. Not surprisingly, the giant bow back was our favorite!
Can you tell we were a little excited for the Amsale group shows? Mercy, y’all, not even the drizzly weather could dampen our spirits as we waited outside for the freight elevator that brought us to the runway! First up was the Kenneth Pool show, which featured lots of glamorous details paired with classic silhouettes. They’d be perfect for a bride who is traditional, but isn’t afraid to wear a daring dress.
As y’all may remember, Emily wore a gorgeous Christos gown for her own wedding, so seeing the new Christos collection was extra special for her! It did not disappoint–every dress was so romantic. Plus, all of the fabrics had amazing movement–don’t they look dreamy?
Finally, the ever-chic and tailored Amsale collection. We loved the mix of fabrics and the little tweaks that made each dress totally unique–a ruffled waistline, floral jacquard, and metallic chantilly lace, to name a few!
We thought the day couldn’t get any better, but then we headed to the beautiful Modern Trousseau presentation. Callie Tein, the designer, was gracious as can be, and served up some tea and chocolate, which was heavenly on such a dreary day! The collection was classic and sweet, with tons of surprises, from gray tulle to the cutest XOXO pattern–can you spot it? So fun!
We wrapped up day two with dinner in the West Village with Emily’s sisters-in-law–a delicious end to a fabulous day! Which gowns from this post are your favorites? Mine are the metallic lace Amsale and the XOXO gown at Modern Trousseau, and Emily’s are the low back gown with a peek of lace at Christos and the floral jacquard Amsale!
