The Bridal Shoes Show in NYC

new york city
Twice a year the bridal industry converges on NYC to see the latest in bridal fashions.  
The designers show in several locations across NYC.  I have to admit it is one of the most exciting times of the year.  
We get to see all of the fabulous wedding dresses, bridesmaid dresses, wedding shoes, bridal jewelry and more that will be hitting the store later in the year.  
I'll have to admit I don't think I have seen quite the collection of shoe designers at the NYC Bridal Market.  
Yes, yes, the gowns are normally the center of attraction but for me, the shoe obsessed, it was all about the shoes.  No matter what your style there is definitely a shoe for you, actually there are so many amazing shoes coming this year, I don't know how a bride could possibly decide on just one!
One of my favorite new lines is Blue By Betsey Johnson.  As expected her styles range from avant garde to feminine and practical.

I love everything about this line.  First of the name Blue, secondly she name all the styles names pertaining to weddings such as Gown Bridal Shoes, Vow Bridal Shoes and Veil Bridal Shoes.  
 Three of my favorite shoes from this collection are shown above. Top Elope Bridal Shoe, Ring Bridal Shoes and the Amazing Crystal covered Wish.  What bride wouldn't Wish to wear these stunning shoes down the aisle?
If Glitz isn't your style, maybe something a bit more romantic, yet unique. This lace bridal boot from Blue by Betsey Johnson is a winner.

I was also really impressed with the collection on Menbur.  They had an amazing collection of bridal shoes, as well as bridesmaids and special occasions. Menbur shoes have beautiful beading detail on the bridal shoes and matching bridal handbag.

From sky high platforms to lady like silhouettes to ballet flats, the choices in bridal shoes is greater than ever.  
I have to admit one of my favorite parts of my job is getting to see all the amazing new styles months before they hit the stores! It's like a kid in a candy store! Does it get any better than this?

Wedding Bows: Fit to Be Tied

I have to say as much as things change they stay the same. One of the big trends in bridal for 2013 is wedding bows!  Bows have always been one of my favorites, and if you ask me- they never went out of style. However, they are now showing up everywhere from wedding dresses to hair accessories to cakes and more. What better way to add a touch of femininity to your wedding than with bows.

I love the delicate bridal jewelry this season that has whimsical bows encrusted with crystal.  They are a nice subtle way to add bows.  Many designers are finishing off their dresses with either bows on the front sash or making a statement with a stunning bow on the back of the wedding gown.

If you are using bows as your theme for your wedding, then by all means carry the bow them over to your wedding cake.  There are so many fabulous bow cakes.  They are truly a work of art!

If you are as crazy about shoes as I am than I'm sure you couldn't help but notice all the wedding shoes with bows.  How is a girl to decide which bow is right for her?  If your dress has a light feeling, opt for a bridal shoe with light soft bow possibly made of tulle.  If your dress is a bit contemporary and tailored, go with a shoe that has a tailored bow with a few crystals. 
The choices are endless when it comes  finding the perfect bow. Remember the beau on your wedding day is forever yours.
