2016 NYC Bridal Market Trends

We're back home from our whirlwind trip to 2016 Bridal Market in NYC (which is basically fashion week for the wedding world), where we had a chance to see some of our favorite designers and take a peek at their latest collections. Still on a high from some seriously amazing designs, we thought we’d share a few trends that stood out. Best part? We'll be adding a few of these styles to the Alt.Brides collection.
