We received a sneak peek at next year’s bridal fashion collections at New York Bridal Market and spotted six bridal trends that kept strutting down the runway. If your calendar is circled for fall 2013, take note.

Evoking a sense of Old World romance, sleeves are slipping down and gracefully grazing just below the shoulder.
A typical alt option in past seasons, blush-toned gowns have earned a prominent place in wedding fashion, and designers are complying. According to Kleinfeld bridal fashion director Terry Hall, it’s the second most popular dress choice, behind the obvious wedding white.
Another nod to Old World fashion, the bell-shaped skirt made an appearance down several runways for fall 2013. The dramatic ball gown is perfect for a statement-making entrance, with a silhouette that flatters.
Romantic and feminine, illusion necklines are becoming as popular as their strapless predecessors. The subtle sexiness has been seen accented with lace, sheer voile and sequins for styles that range from delicate to decadent.

Thanks to Duchess Catherine’s sleeved style choice for the Royal Wedding, it’s apparent that sleeves will be sticking around, especially in the chillier months.

Metallic touches have recently been popular in wedding décor, and we’re now beginning to see it make an appearance on the ensembles.

My partner and I have a unique engagement story. We both identify as queer and my partner, Owen, is transgender. Although we often subscribe to what "men and women" do in relationship, we wanted to be sure that we were being very intentional about how to move forward together and which traditions felt good to us.Engagement 2711
