Hey guys! It’s Rachel here! Along with working at Amber Housley, I am a Store Manager for B. Hughes Bridal, a couture bridal boutique here in Nashville. Every Fall and Spring I have the opportunity to attend New York Bridal Fashion Week, also known as Bridal Market, to see all the new gowns and collections of the designers we carry in our store.
There was so many beautiful gowns this year and it was so hard to pick my favorites! But some dresses did stand out more than others. Below are my favorites from designers Carolina Herrera, Oscar de la Renta, and Vera Wang.
On the final night at Bridal Market, I had the wonderful opportunity to attend Martha Stewart’s 20th Anniversary party of Martha Stewart Weddings. It was held at the Pierre Hotel and it was absolutely gorgeous. There were lots of fun party food and desserts, an amazing live band, and so many wonderful people to meet and mingle with.
On the same night as the Martha Stewart Party, I also was able to attend The Knot Party. The Knot Party was held at the Library downtown in NYC and if you have never been there before, it is a must. The architecture is absolutely beautiful. One of my favorite things at the knot party was the hanging salad garden. It is such a creative and fun idea to add to any party or wedding reception. You go and “pick” your salad as if you are picking apples from a tree!
I had such a blast attending Bridal Market and I loved seeing so many new great gowns and ideas to bring back for our wonderful brides here in Nashville!
