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!

20190413_142054.JPG

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!

 

#TMBTEAM: Adele Gatto, Public Relations and Creative Director

 

Our team at The Modern Bride has grown and we couldn’t be more excited! This is the perfect opportunity to introduce you to all the beautiful babes who make The Modern Bride so successful! Each week we will share some fun facts to highlight one of our #TMBTeam members. Today, we are introducing you to our Public Relations & Creative Director, Adele!

Adele Gatto.jpeg

You’ve been at TMB for over a year and a half now, why do you love working at TMB? 

Every day I am surrounded by inspiring, supportive boss ladies where the main goals are to make every bride who walks through our doors know she is absolutely deserving of whatever bridal dream she envisions. Every day here is a Royal Wedding; a modern Royal Wedding, of course!

Ok so now it’s time to talk about your dream wedding! Is it happening in the spring, summer, fall or winter?
Without a doubt it will be a snow-covered, BC mountainscape, winter wedding on New Years Eve, baby!

So if your NYE wedding was actually tomorrow, what TMB dress would you choose to get married in?

Nico by Alexandra Grecco, with a custom extended train for all the drama!

Veil or No Veil: 

This just isn’t even a debate in my opinion: veil! When are you ever going to get the chance to wear a veil again? You’ll find me walking down the aisle in a Meghan-Markle-esque veil; an absolute show stopper from Aleksa Karina or Alice & Mae!

Bridal fashions are always evolving, but what is a 2019 bridal fashion trend you are loving right now?

Higher necklines on dresses! I think there is something so regal and classic about a structured high-neckline.

modernbride120.jpg

As a self proclaimed lover of all things weddings, if you had to pick, what would be your favourite part of the wedding?

Groom’s reaction to bride walking down the aisle; whether it is a grin from ear to ear or, my personal favourite, a groom brought to tears! Call me old-fashioned, but I say skip the ‘first look’ and save the initial emotions for the walk down the aisle.

Finally, what are 3 things people may not know about you?

  1. I'm absolutely petrified of butterflies.

  2. If I didn’t already have my dream job, I’d be a sports reporter.

  3. My half-blind French Bulldog, Gordon Bombay is my world.

Style, Fizz and Sparkle is a drop-in event, so no appointment necessary, but we do ask that you RSVP via email with your name and wedding date. RSVP here

IMG_1100.JPG

Can I bring my bridesmaids?

Absolutely! Bring your bride tribe to check out all the accessories. With the 10% discount, this is the perfect opportunity to purchase some beautiful bridesmaid gifts.

 

Should I bring my dress to try on when choosing accessories?

We have created Style, Fizz and Sparkle to be a drop-in event to accommodate as many bride’s as possible, so brides will not have the chance to try on their dress with the accessories during this event. If you want to try your dress on with the accessories we suggest booking an accessory appointment during the week of the Accessory Trunk Show (April 30-May 2). You can book an Accessory Appointment here.

I didn’t buy my dress at TMB, can I still come to check out accessories?

Of course! We would love to have you, just remember to RSVP here.

 

Will there be stock to purchase the day of the event or are all the pieces ordered?

We will have stock pieces, but the majority of the pieces will be made-to-order! Accessories should be purchased approximately 4-8 weeks before your wedding.
