The white wedding gown will always be a classic choice, but Spring 2013 Bridal Market saw some daring departures from this tradition. From accents of black to subtle pastels to fire-engine red (yes, RED), many designers produced gorgeous fashions for the technicolor bride, particularly Vera Wang with her collection of fiery wedding dresses.

The latest from Farah Angsana is suited for the edgy bride in search of new textures and dramatic embellishment. The shameless addition of over-the-top details on classic silhouettes makes for a stand-out presentation on the runway and down the aisle.

The current front-runner in the “little white dress” concept also included breathtaking ball gowns, curve-hugging trumpets, and chic bridemaids’ dresses in her collection.

The latest from Junko Yoshioka gains its beauty from details such as rich draping, textured overlays, and architectural pleating.

The gowns from Ian Stuart had two elements that I just adored. On the one hand were a few short dresses that reflect the retro-chic vibe that I’ve come to fall in love with. On the other hand were ball gown, trumpet, and A-line frocks that were full of grace, charm, and drama.

Appliqués were the name of the game at Reem Acra this season. The gowns this season were accented with white floral accents, adding a frilly touch to the overall dreamy aesthetic.

In keeping with my love/fixation with retro fashion, I naturally have to feature the latest from Jenny Packham. Her 1930s/1940s glamour aesthetic is just fabulous. I mean, what’s not to love?

“Drama” is definitely the word for Kenneth Pool’s newest collection. These gowns are definitely not for a shrinking violet; brides looking to make a grand entrance should look in this direction. Come on, with Austin Scarlett of Project Runway being the creative director, did you really expect anything short of spectacular?

Neither did I.

I’m caught up in the simple dreaminess of the latest from Christos. The touches of champagne and gold (along with frothy details) are enough for the fantasy, but the classic silhouettes bring the frocks right back down to reality.

It’s that time again! The bridal designers have come out to play and are sending oodles of gorgeous wedding frocks down the runway. Be sure to check back often for collection highlights by yours truly!
