Bicoastal Bride At Bridal Market

I’m back after my whirlwind weekend in New York City covering Bridal Market, and what an awesome weekend it was! Though I was only able to attend a few shows this time – my first ever at Bridal Market – I had a ball and can’t wait to hopefully head back in the fall to cover more ground and meet more new faces in the industry.

Bring completely new to Bridal Market, and the New York fashion scene for that matter, I didn’t quite know what to expect at first, and admittedly felt some degree of intimidation at the thought of being in the same room as such big name players as Bridal Guide Editor Diane Forden, Brides Editor Millie Martini Bratten, and reps from most of the major bridal magazines and websites in the country.

But after going from show to show while tweeting, posting and blogging throughout the day, I was having such a great time, I forgot all about the newness of the experience. In the end, I even found myself wishing I could stay longer, catch more shows, and talk with more people. Though I didn’t get a chance to network with everyone I wanted to this time around, those I did meet with were incredibly kind and welcoming, excited to hear about everything going on at the Weddzilla Blog, and making me feel even more thrilled to be a part of such an awesome event.

Here, a few sneak peeks inside my experience at Bridal Market, which I hope will be the first of many!

Weddzilla Marketing Director Sara Morgan and I loved attending the Alfred Angelo runway show...

...where we chatted with talented Bridal Guide Editor Diane Forden.

Seeing Alfred Angelo designer Michael Shettel in person was awesome!

And the Christos, Kenneth Pool and Amsale shows were just as exciting... was seeing another of my favorite designers, Amsale Aberra, herself! 
Be sure to visit the Weddzilla Blog all week long for details about our favorite Bridal Market trends, and let me know which designers you'd love to see covered in the future. The fall shows will be here before I know it!
