That’s right, y’all! These Southern girls are headed North (for the weekend, that is)! Whitney and I could NOT be more excited about our upcoming trip to the Big Apple for New York’s Bridal Market. We’ll be getting up close and personal with all the gorgeous collections of designer dresses for Fall 2012 to bring you, our lovely brides, the best and most Southern gowns and glittering goodies!
Whitney: I just had to jump in, because I’m too excited to let Marissa make this fantastic announcement all by herself! This will be my first time attending Bridal Market, and I’m just as happy as can be to get the chance to see all of the gorgeousness from our favorite bridal designers. It’s a tough job, but someone has to do it, right Marissa?

Here’s a little rundown on all the fabulous details of our trip!
What exactly is Bridal Market? It’s so much fun, y’all! No, really! Bridal Market is a gathering of the best of the best in bridal fashion from all over the world. It’s also where wedding gown and accessory designers introduce their collections for the next season. Think Fashion Week – only better! We were thrilled to be invited to cover all the loveliness! Let me tell you, last year I think I said “Oh my gosh, y’all!” over 100 times. Just ask Lara!
When will the SW ladies be there? We’ll be jetting into NYC in the wee hours of the morning on Saturday and heading back below the Mason-Dixon on Monday night.
What designers will you be seeing? This might be my favorite part! We’ll be heading to the shows of Claire Pettibone, Amsale, Junko Yoshioka, Reem Acra, Monique Lhuillier, Anne Barge, Watters and a few more! Yeehaw! Yep, we’re planning on fitting all those lovely gowns into just three short days!
We’ll also be keeping you all in the loop: we’ll have tweet-coverage LIVE all weekend long, so be sure to follow along with us: Southern Weddings, Marissa and Whitney.
Are you going to be there? You know what else we love besides silk, lace and ribbon? Seeing old friends and making new ones! If you see us at Market, we’d simply adore it if you’d come say “howdy!” P.S. We’re from the South, so we’re huggers! Can’t find us? Tweet us, Facebook us or email us! We’ll be sure to say “hey!”.

If you can’t wait until October 15th, get your fill with all of last year’s goodness. It was so huge we had to break it into eight pieces! 1, 2, 3, 4 , 5, 6, 7 and 8.
