Top 3 Bridal Trends from NYC & Barcelona

 

April was a world-wind of month traveling from New York City to Barcelona to find the perfect dresses to add to our TMB Dress Loft! We purchased over 50 new gowns; some have already started to arrive and all of them will be here for you by August. We are also introducing two new designers to the TMB Dress Loft: Justin Alexander and Alena Leena. We couldn’t be more excited about our newest additions and we will give you all the details when they arrive!

To get you prepared for the beautiful show-stoppers coming to TMB, we put together a list of the top three trends we saw in NYC and Barcelona!

Top 3 Trends from 2019 NYC Spring Bridal Market

  • Sparkles - There was absolutely no shortage of sparkles adorning gowns and accessories! Expect to see delicate sparkle embellishments on sleek silhouettes.

  • Tiered Skirts - An update to the A-line; tiered skirts were everywhere! The tiered skirt gives more movement, texture and volume to your look and well, we cannot wait to see you babes in them!

  • Billow Sleeves - At Market in Fall 2018 we saw bell sleeves all over and this season designers have once again stepped up their sleeve game and are giving us perfectly tailored billow sleeves that have our romantic bride hearts aflutter! Embellishments on the billow sleeves and structured cuffs are coming to TMB!

Now, Barcelona is a whole different bridal ballpark! Valmont Barcelona Bridal Fashion Week is the world’s biggest bridal fashion week bringing together hundreds of global bridal brands to show off their latest works of art. For perspective here, Pronovias displayed 200+ dresses that took us an entire day to walk through and see! Surprise to no one, we wanted them all! But, we successfully chose over 30 new styles from Pronovias and Atelier Pronovias that we know our brides will love!

Top 3 Trends from 2019 Barcelona Fashion Week

  • Black Accents - Brace yourselves ladies, black accents have popped up everywhere and we are here for it! Whether is it a lace detail or full ballgown, black is taking the bridal world by storm and you can absolutely expect to see the dark tone in the TMB Dress Loft!

  • Non-Traditional Lace - Designers are swapping traditional laces for non-traditional graphic details! This twist on tradition paves the way for unique, modern yet timeless gowns that we know our TMB babes are going to fall head over heels for.

  • Sleeves - Sleeves are here and they’re here to stay ladies! It doesn’t matter if you’re having a spring, summer, fall or winter wedding, there is a sleeve for you! Whether you want a romantic lace detailed sleeve or a opaque sleeve, Pronovias has delivered and we can’t wait to show you what we are bringing into the TMB Dress Loft!

All the new dresses are set to arrive by August! Appointment spaces will fill up quickly, so be sure to book your appointment today!

 

TMB in NYC: Top 5 Trends We Saw at NYC Bridal Market

We came, we saw, we fell head over heels for all the wedding dresses at 2018 NYC Bridal Market!

If you were following along with our Instagram stories this past weekend, you would have noticed we were a wee-bit excited about everything we saw at 2018 NYC October Bridal Market! We met with amazing designers we currently carry and we were in complete awe of their newest collections. We also met with some new designers who we will be bringing into the boutique and can’t wait to tell you more about.

Before we dish on all the new styles and designers that will be coming to TMB in Spring 2019, we wanted to break down the ‘Top 5 Bridal Trends We Saw in NYC’!

  1.  Unconventional Fabric - Swiss dot, intertwined honeycomb sponge mesh, and bee lace (yes you read that right, literal lace bees on a dress)!

  2. Bell Sleeves – Get ready ladies, flowing sleeves are coming and we just cannot wait for you to fall in love with them as much as we did! The bell sleeves give off a super romantic and fun vibe for your wedding day.

  3. 90’s Necklines – We’re talking crescent necklines and straight across necklines, so think Alicia Silverstone as Clueless’ Cher Horowitz in that infamous red dress or Rachael Lee Cook in She’s All That, ahh gorgeous!

  4. Cut Outs – Cut outs are still very much a thing in bridal and we couldn’t be happier about it; nothing like a little peak-a-boo to modernize your dress!

  5. New Individual Lines – We saw a lot of young entrepreneurial women who are shaping the future of bridal! We’re predicting that the bridal world is on a shift from a big box wedding dress production to individually-inspired dress designs with young entrepreneurial woman at the helm of their very own lines.

That’s it for now babes, but stay tuned for a complete vlog recap of our NYC trip! #TMBinNYC
