Last month was that time of the year again–Bridal Fashion Week in NYC! I was down there with the Sally Conant Ph.D., the Executive Director of the Association of Wedding Gown Specialists, where we spent the weekend running two booths–one over at Pier 94 for the International Bridal Fashion Week show and the Couture Show hosted by TheKnot at the Metropolitan Pavilion. We saw some GORGEOUS wedding dresses from various designers’ 2015 Spring collection and we had the honor of getting an invite to the biggest wedding industry bash of the year, TheKnot Gala (where I got to meet the famous Randy Fenoli from Say Yes to the Dress!)
At Pier 94, we saw gorgeous wedding gowns from both well-known and up & coming designers.
We also met with a fabulous new designer, Kelsey Ganna, from New Zealand. Her line, The Flower Bride totally nails the boho/chic vintage bridal look. We were swooning!
Over at TheKnot’s Couture Show, we saw some fab gowns and got to chat with some of our favorite designers, including LA-based designer Madeleine Fig. TheKnot had the most adorable set-up for the welcome lounge at their show!
After 3 days of working both markets, I got to eat, drink and dance the night away at TheKnot’s annual wedding industry Gala at the New York Public Library. There were over 1,000 attendees and I also got the chance to mingle with wedding industry elites such as Carley Roney (TheKnot’s co-founder), Randy Fenoli (Kleinfeld Fashion Director and star of Say Yes to the Dress) and the tremendously talented Jannina Figueroa, owner and designer of Madeleine Fig.

My awesome husband came with me and was the perfect arm candy–we had a BLAST :)
Entertainment was provided by Hank Lane Music who kept everyone dancing all night long with the incredible live band!
We loved every minute of it and can’t wait to see what TheKnot Gala has in store for 2015 :) Check out more amazing photos from TheKnot Gala here!
