Andrea Wasserman, our National Bridal Director, shares her favorite trends (and behind-the-scenes snaps of buying appointments) coming this fall for bridal gowns and bridesmaid dresses.

Tulle. We noted a trend of featherweight skirts during our October trip to market and were thrilled to see it persist in a bigger way over this trip weekend. We saw tulle on bodices, skirts, exaggerated veils and often layered with lace or sequins. Heidi Elnora’s use of English netting as a tulle alternative was incredible for its airy nature, and Vera Wang’s use of layers and layers of draped tulle wowed us in shades of red.

Lace. From alençon to Chantilly and full to borders to appliqué, lace was the #1 trend in gowns, veils, jackets and reception dresses. Lace was an important part of every designer’s assortment, and we loved what Reem Acra and Amsale did with it. [Pictured: Theia, coming this fall]

Bows. We saw a feminine bow detail trending upward and will look for more of it next season. We’ve always loved the way Amsale adds excitement to the back of her gowns in this way and also took note of some sweet tiny bows at Reem Acra and Rosa Clara.

Illusion. More than ever before, we noticed sheer necklines, sleeves and low cut backs that featured lace or appliqué. Lela Rose added to the drama with her exquisite hand beading in organic shapes that were inspired by the landscape of NYC parks.

Peplum. We know this isn’t for every bride, but in a nod to the couture and ready-to-wear shapes of the season, we saw designers interpreting peplum in ways that were wearable and timeless. Length, shape, structure and fabrication varied, but everyone registered the importance of this ladylike look. [Pictured: Jill Stuart bridesmaid dress, coming this fall]
