Bridal Fashion Week, where several designers unveil their wedding finery for the upcoming fall, just drew to a close here in New York City. Take a peek at the styles you'll be seeing at weddings for months to come. Piles and piles of tulle! Flower crowns! Hemlines that would make a showgirl blush!
On Saturday, Monique Lhuillier presented her Fall 2014 collection as part of New York Fashion Week, and although there were a couple of white, frothy frocks, there was lots of black: Lacy black, black net, black feathers, and a sweeping black cape with crimson embroidery.
Monique Lhuillier designs for the red carpet, so it's no wonder that the the front row was propped up with boldfaces scouting for awards season. Or that, by the end, the crowd's wonder was audible.

The latest season of bridal shows began on Friday, and already we are mildly concerned with what we see.
