We've had a full schedule of trunk shows over the past few months. This past weekend we hosted a joint Melissa Sweet and Priscilla of Boston trunk show. The gowns were stunning, the brides were awesome and we are so excited for those brides who found their dream gown during the trunk show!

Now that trunk show season is winding down (only 2 left!) we are looking to what's next. In October top designers will showcase their 2010 collections. We are so excited to see what's next for bridal. It's always exciting to see the new trends and styles for the new year.

Alvina Valenta has a new designer joining their team this season, Jessica Williams. Alvina Valenta is a strong bridal collection with a history of presenting timeless beauties to the bridal world. We are looking forward to seeing what Jessica has to offer. Here is the press release from Alvina Valenta naming Jessica as the new head designer. (click image to enlarge for easier reading)

The Little White Dress

Brides who think long flowy layers and big tulle skirts are a thing of the past often opt for a short gown. The short bridal gown trend has blown up in recent years, and designers are sending more short gowns down the runway.

Several of our designers offer short gowns. Romona Keveza offers a variety of short gowns within her Legends collection. Brides have the choice between classic silhouettes of full lace and more fashion forward styles featuring crumb catcher necklines and bubbly hems.

"Cancun" by Watters Brides has been a popular choice among brides. The flower appliques give this gown a fun and unique look. It's light weight fabric and flowly silhouette offers brides the upmost comfort.

Melissa Sweet offers fun and stylish gowns for the modern bride.

Not ready to give up your floor length gown? Some brides opt for a more traditional look for the ceremony and change for the reception. Your guests are sure to be shocked when you arrive ready to dance the night away in your little white dress!

From fun and flirty ruffles to sleek sophisticated silhouettes, the little white dress is sure to be a big hit this season.
