Y’all, these Southern girls are headed north! (For a few days, that is!) Every October, we pack our chicest black outfits, our comfiest shoes, and our full-charged iPhones and head to the Big Apple for New York’s Bridal Market!
This year, I’m so excited to bring my newest partner in crime, Kristin, on this adventure! (Look for a special introduction post for Mrs. Winchester on Friday!) Together, we’ll be searching for the best and most Southern designs to share with you sweet readers (and gushing over all the gorgeousness along the way).
Our awesome friend, Mr. Trent Bailey, took the photo on the left as I hailed my first cab in NYC! On the right is a gorgeous gown from last year’s Badgley Mishcka show.
Here’s a little rundown on all the fabulous details of our trip!
What exactly is Bridal Market? Bridal Market is a gathering of the best of the best in bridal fashion from all over the world. It’s also where wedding gown and accessory designers introduce their collections for the next season. Think Fashion Week – only better! We were thrilled to be invited to cover all the loveliness!
When will the SW ladies be there? We’ll be jetting into NYC this Friday morning, and heading back below the Mason-Dixon on Tuesday.
What designers will you be seeing? This might be my favorite part! We’ll be heading to the shows of Claire Pettibone, Amsale, Reem Acra, Monique Lhuillier, Anne Barge, Watters and a few more!
We’ll also be keeping you all in the loop: We’ll have tweet/insta-coverage LIVE all weekend long, so be sure to follow along with us: Southern Weddings, Marissa and Kristin.
Are you going to be there? You know what else we love besides silk, lace and ribbon? Seeing old friends and making new ones! If you see us at Market, we’d simply adore it if you’d come say “howdy!” P.S. We’re from the South, so we’re huggers! Can’t find us? Tweet us, Facebook us or email us! We’ll be sure to say “hey!”.
Nancy Ray took this photo of the two of us. Now you know what we look like, so you have no excuse not to come say “hey”!
