Every little girl dreams of that day when she will walk down the aisle as the organ spits out “dum, dum, di, dum” in the perfect dress and marry the guy of her dreams. After the 3 days of New York International Bridal Fashion Week Spring 2014, it was not hard to say that there was plenty of stunning aisle-worthy creations. Any blushing bride-to-be would be able to find herself that one special dress from the parade of brides. They came beaming down the runway in dresses by the top wedding dress designers such as Marchesa, Temperley, Vera Wang, Oscar de la Renta and Monique Lhuillier to name a few, that were luxurious, romantic and still edgy. These stunning beauties came in an assortment of silhouettes that created beautiful shapes all suited for every type of woman. They were the traditional modest looks, elegant slim floor-length dresses, princess-like ball gowns and even the unconventional hemlines created mostly out of choice fabrics such as lace, tulle and silk crepe. But it was the long vintage lace veils, the embellished bodices, ethereal necklines, revealing backs and unexpected colors that triggered the ooh and aahs from the attendees. Practicality was also considered by some designers as some creations incorporated skirt suits instead of dresses, head pieces instead of long veils well as dresses that could go straight from the chapel and onto the dance floor.
