NY Bridal Week

New York International Bridal Week is one of our favorite times of the year here at Gather Together. Our inner princess is delighted to see gown after gorgeous gown in so many patterns, fabrics, and styles. NY Bridal Week is the equivalent of Fashion Week for the wedding world. Hosted in Manhattan, wedding gown designers from around the world gather to show their annual collections. They did not dissappoint in 2013!

Though we were not able to attend, some of our favorite local folks, including Tre Bella Bridal and Southern Bride & Groom, were lucky enough to be there in person! While they were in the midst of things, we scoped out the scene from afar {le sigh...}

Weddings Unveiled always has amazing fashion coverage, so we loved seeing their recap of all the shows! Here are some of our favorite gowns from this year's Bridal Week. All photos from Weddings Unveiled.

Rivini designed what we love as an ideal destination wedding dress. With that sophisticated comfort, this Rivini gown would fit right in on any white beach! We can just imagine bare feet, an orchid in the hair, and a great tan.

Another Rivini gown, you can see the wide range of their designs, from destination to classic ballroom. This dress is simply angelic. The layers upon layers of light organza would make a bride appear to be floating down the aisle, on the dance floor, or right into the getaway Rolls Royce!

Monique Lhuillier, one of the most well-known names in wedding couture, is known for traditional with a twist. This lace gown (we LOVE her lace!) with sleeves and an elegant neckline would be great for a winter bride that would like to be a bit more covered up. This dress is pure feminine sophistication.

This Theia gown is simple and sexy, with beading to die for! Perfect for the tall and slender bride, we just love the beautiful texture and pattern of this lovely sheath.
