Ask the Expert: Bridal Market Report

by Ryan Conner | April 16, 2014

We have a very special Ask the Expert today featuring the latest trends in wedding dress fashion. Elle Warren Harman and Cecilia Flores-Barrón, co-owners of the Snider Plaza bridal boutique Warren Barrón, are dishing on their favorite looks from last weekend’s New York Bridal Market. Here’s what they saw and what they loved.

Austin Scarlett

Austin Scarlett’s latest collection is art deco-inspired, featuring beautiful necklines and flattering cuts.


Carolina Herrera

Carolina Herrera’s stunning collection features plunging v-necklines and light weight gowns. Even the fuller gowns are lighter than ever before and many gowns feature pockets for the bride to store anything she may need on her big day.


Elizabeth Fillmore

Elizabeth Fillmore’s spring collection highlights a whimsical, ethereal, garden motif. Straying from the traditional white gown, her new colors boast a touch of nude and rose.


Lela Rose

The latest gowns from Lela Rose boast low beaded backs and lace and beaded jackets to accompany beautifully plain gowns.



Soft chiffon gowns in blush colors with necklines other than strapless are the latest trend in Marchesa’s bridal collection.


Monique Lhuillier

Monique Lhuillier’s new collection strays from warm tones and embraces cooler, misty tones. Short sleeved sheer jackets with beading and lace add to the old time glamorous feel of her latest gowns, many of which are made with tulle.


Monique Lhuillier Platinum

Monique Lhuillier’s latest gowns from her Platinum collection, including one in periwinkle, will turn heads with their high-low cuts and unique floral-inspired trains.


Romona Keveza

Romona Keveza’s new couture line features uber sleek silhouettes that are timeless and beautifully made. Several of her gowns include a metal belt that made the gowns stand out from any others.



Ulla-Maija’s spring collection includes beautiful, clean gowns that show off the high-quality fabric and a bride’s figure without any embellishment. Nude underlining is also trending in this year’s collection.


Vera Wang

Vera’s latest collection is all about tulle: French tulle, pleated tulle, and other tulle techniques. It also features fashion-forward lace patterns and lingerie-inspired thin lines and dramatic backs. You can see Vera’s collection here.
