This collection brings her ethereal, innovated, and sophisticated spirit in dresses with simplicity and maximum delicacy, designed by and for women."
"The new collection is a take on old school glamour, featuring dramatic bow details and Amsale’s iconic sleek sophistication. Dramatic in its simplicity, this modern draped crepe gown celebrates Amsale’s signature use of a single focal point." —Margo Lafontaine, design director at Amsale New York
"This season is about confidence, not compromise. I've been exploring empowerment principles and how energy is truly a universal language. I wanted each gown in this collection to represent a different value in the same way a superhero manifests a special skill; everything from loyalty and resilience to grit and gratitude is in attendance. Fabrications include a heart-fluttering hybrid of tulle, organza, and silk gauze with ombré embroidery. For the bride that values love, loyalty, and laughter, 'she's gotta go see about a gown.' " —Hayley Paige
"This season celebrates the female form, embracing the diva in all of us, along with the ingenue. Creating moments that are everlasting, with unforgettable trends that are looked back on with a sigh. Sensuously cut gowns that embrace a woman’s curves, sumptuous silk fabrics and embellishments of inset gleaming jewel-like crystals. A luminous color palette with varying tones of ivory and subtle pastels. My bride is an accomplished woman, strong and self-assured, she empowers my designs and will do what she pleases."
"This season’s 30-piece collection, ‘Light as a Feather,’ embodies the delicate, graceful movement of a floating feather. I’ve applied couture detailing in the form of subtle feathers cascading down a ballgown and fur outerwear to match. I wanted the MZ brand to be attainable for all my lovely brides-to-be and I am excited to announce that these dresses retail from $2,400 to $6,000 for my budget savvy ladies." —Mark Zunino
"The Alistaire Collection by Maggie Sottero features covetable gowns with radiant shimmer and ultraromantic styling. We’ve designed for over twenty years—these are our jewels of time and transformation. Anastasia, our princess ballgown, fuses romance and elegance, featuring soft lace motifs and a dramatic tiered skirt. The strapless sweetheart neckline and natural waistline flatter a variety of body types, while unique embellishments create a sense of glamour and occasion. Anastasia is designed for the bride with a formal yet playful vision for her big day. The ballgown silhouette makes her feel like a princess for her ceremony, but the tiered tulle and horsehair also look flirty and fabulous on the reception dance floor."
Blush by Hayley Paige
"This collection is inspired by a dense summer of love, travel, and laughter. I felt like capturing even the littlest moments of joy within the elements of design and composition. There is a mood-lifting charm about this season, only kind and happy thoughts allowed. Fabrications include a happy gambit of tulle, lace, organza, and crepe. The Fawn gown (above) is actually a two-in-one look with a detachable over-skirt. She is for the most versatile of brides who is equal parts daydream-believer and style maven." —Hayley Paige
"The spirit of Ophelia is the 'New Romantic.' She creates her own journey and independent vision of herself—a balance of urban rock star and whimsical forest, both woven together by high art, dramatic Edwardian elements, and couture shapes. Sleek tailored moiré taffeta pieces are juxtaposed with signature bias-cut sheaths and the delicate femininity of the whimsical butterfly tulle gowns." —Elizabeth Fillmore
"The latest collection is an ode to dramatic simplicity; clean lines, fresh textures, and classic details converge to create gowns that are simultaneously modern yet timeless. Inspired by the fabrics themselves, brides can shine on their wedding days in ivory French micro sequins, Italian floral jacquards, and silk faille. Expect to see architecturally structured gowns and large doses of panache on the runway. The classic bride is back and is more sophisticated than ever. This collection is for the bride who wants to look the epitome of elegance on her wedding day."
"This season at Sébastien Luke we want to cherish those precious moments in love—the date in the park, the stroll on the beach, the kiss under the star—leading to that walk down the aisle. By combining pieces of these moments into florals, pearls, and pleats, we created a collection of romantic and modern silhouettes for the bride to put on and celebrate that most important moment of love."
Sottero and Midgley
"The Bardot Collection by Sottero and Midgley is 'a celebration of our most intrepid art forms.' It’s dynamic and vibrant, featuring couture styles for modern muses. This Mikado wedding dress, Tyra, is a glam and modern upgrade to a vintage-inspired silhouette, featuring elegant lines, glitzy embellishments, and a statement panel train. We designed this gown for the chic bride with an eye for Old Hollywood style. The bateau neckline and satin fabrication evoke Grace Kelly glamour, while the illusion side cutouts add a perfect dose of modern sex appeal."
"Look beyond what meets the eye—the Anne Barge fall 2019 bridal collection is full of mystery and surprise. Past the clean, graphic lines of the collection lie layers of rich detail and meticulous craftsmanship. This season, inspiration is taken from perspective photography, with each dress open to interpretation based on the viewer's lens. The strong, architectural silhouettes of the gowns are accented by ethereal floating layers of embroidered illusion tulle, silk organza, and abstract floral jacquard. Structural, minimalist pieces are given a soft touch of feminism with tulle ruffles, pearl-accented beading, and embroidery, along with cascading soutache bows. The simple sophistication of the fall 2019 designs paired with whimsical elements of surprise delivers a romantic collection with a modern-day twist."
"The latest Stella York collection brings the magic of femininity to life. With bold florals, enchanting shimmer and subtle, and almost mystifying sheerness, these details encapsulate the spirit of the modern woman. Love this look? Click here to find a retailer near you."

"Break all the rules this season—escape to warmer weather and dive into Hermione De Paula’s romantic, subaquatic vision for fall 2019. Inspired by natural elements of the sun, sand, and sea, gowns shimmer in silver, liquid gold, and pink sunset hues. Slip gowns, strapless bustiers, and interchangeable separates are paired with voluminous organza skirts for an effortless transition from day to night. Exquisite craftsmanship, seen in the intricate silk thread and hand embroidery, bring tropical heirloom artwork to life. Modern mermaid-like silhouettes are accented by sheer veils adorned with oceanic florals. Daring pops of color and fashion forward styles deliver a one-of-a-kind collection designed for the free-spirited beach bride."
"Rebecca Ingram gowns are the ideal convergence of style and affordability. A budget-savvy bride will love this romantic and flattering style—everything she needs at a price point she’ll love. The Seraphina collection by Rebecca Ingram is sunny and breezy—a little baroque and a little boho. These classic, high-quality gowns are perfect for garden weddings, beachy celebrations, and moonlit soirees. This lovely A-line gown, Macey, features shimmering lace motifs and illusion details along the sleeves, neckline, and scoop back. Horsehair trim adds a touch of whimsy to the hemline."
Katherine Tash Bridal
"The fall 2019 collection, 'Currents,' which will be shown in October at New York Bridal Fashion Week, was influenced by the currents of the ocean. The gentle movements of the water inspired a collection that combines our signature ethereal bodies with rich fabrics, and original hand-beaded textiles designed by Katherine and handcrafted by artisans in Israel. The Calypso dress pictured here is a plunge-neck gown using our original beaded vine textile, complete with a mini cape at the shoulders and dramatic godets in the skirt, giving the traditional fit and flare a major update. The Calypso is one of the center pieces of our collection this season, combining a fluid silhouette with romantic yet strong details and elevating our line while staying true to who we are as a brand." —Katherine Tash

The collection showcases light-as-air ballgowns, sleek and sexy columns, and our modernized take on the traditional mermaid silhouette, all threaded together with luxe and textured fabrics and surprising, modern details like daring plunge necklines and semi-sheer bodices. While gowns are varied in style and silhouette, each one is inspired by the excitement, joy, and unique personality each BHLDN bride brings to her wedding day." —Rachel Scaffe, BHLDN associate buyer

"This upcoming collection, titled 'Bridal Evolution,' is inspired by the powerful and modern bride who demands versatility and longevity for her wedding ensemble. Many of the pieces can be worn as traditional wedding attire as well as easily convert to a modern reception look where the bride can enjoy comfortability and movement without restriction while dancing the night away. 'I want the bride to enjoy her wedding day and be in the moment,' says Rahm. These pieces also can be incorporated into her wardrobe after the big day by pairing them with items already in their closet. Randi has been designing for a long list of high profile clients since 1995. Rahm recently introduced couture baseball jackets in her spring 2019 collection and has hinted at releasing a bridal edition for this upcoming collection."
"The Halfpenny London fall 2019 collection, 'The Air That We Breathe,' is inspired by a magical adventure into fairy-tale romances and enchanting English gardens. Ethereal princess silhouettes are crafted in layers of pleated tulle, duchess satin, and silk organza. A whimsical play on soft, delicate gowns and modern separates embody a fashion forward collection with a classic feminine touch."
"This past summer we vacationed in Puglia, Italy, and stayed in the middle of an olive grove. Walking through the grove, listening to the crickets and taking in the untamed beauty of it all, I was led to the inspiration of this collection. I wanted the gowns to feel really wild with lots of bold floral embroideries. I think these gowns would fit in anywhere, but I tried to envision someone getting married in a wild garden or olive grove, and that's what these gowns are made for."
"I really wanted this collection to capture the ethereal intoxication that is falling in love. I played with texture and custom embroidery this season to bring that magical quality to the gowns while evolving the ’30s inspired elegance that is synonymous with the brand.” —Savannah Miller

It also features Chantelle lace underneath, fortified dotted French silk tulle skirt with cathedral train, and matching cape wing style made with the same fortified dotted French silk tulle." —Netta Ben Shabu
