I recently stumbled upon the wonder that is New York Bridal Fashion Week. What? How did I not know this was a thing? During the second week of October, New York bridal and fashion gurus sent their offerings for the Fall/Winter 2018 (that’s right, I said 2018) bridal season. And with big-deal designers like Carolina Herrera, Marchesa, and Zuhair Murad in the mix, what’s being shown is legitimately fashionable, and not the parade of frou-frou you might expect. This is no bridal fair!

I don’t usually get particularly jazzed about bridal stuff, but these designers really knocked it out of the park. For example, I never thought the words “bridal jumpsuit” would make my heart flutter, but flutter it did. And the capes! I’m a sucker for a good cape on a normal day, but pair it with a sleek sheath dress and cover it with beads, and I’m a goner for sure.

I tried to cut back on the photos I included in this post, I swear I did. However, I was generally unsuccessful. My bad…

  1. I think some of those beautiful dresses need more than just five stars. Happy that you didn’t post the price tags. All of them are beautiful. Hal

  2. Beautiful dresses. There is something about a wedding dress.

  3. Wow, talk about upscale! There was that one where the woman looked like Dracula with the floor length cape, which was a bit humorous IMHO. The rest were gorgeous…especially the small, silver fringy cape which was out of this world. Too bad us 99% will never be able to afford such pretty things, but hey, we can have fun dreaming!

  4. So elegant and I love all the strong lines in the tailoring. It makes me wish I had worn pants and/or a cape for my own wedding all those years ago. In fact, I might just have to get remarried (maybe even to the same bloke if he’s lucky) just so I can wear something more gorgeous than I did for our penny wedding.

  5. Dresses to die for. I don’t want to think about what I did with my own wedding dress. A past regret, but hey ho, we can’t go back can we.

  6. I love watching the television show “Say Yes to the Dress.” Don’t know why, probably because I bought my wedding dress off the sale rack. On my lunch hour. I never had the ‘experience’ these young brides are looking for. But I’m still married after 27 years so I guess it all worked out. I notice on some of these wedding dresses and what I’ve seen on TV that sleeves are coming back! Not everything is sleeveless sweetheart neckline mermaid! 🙂
