Counting on weddings to continue to take place regardless of the economy, bridal designers and retailers expect lighter-weight dresses and body-skimming silhouettes to appeal to their customers in the months ahead.
For the most part, everyone from Oscar de la Renta to J. Crew staged runway shows or presentations during bridal week in New York last week, but this time around, many of them showed a variety of lengths and styles instead of just the tried-and-true formal wedding gown. With many brides still buying two dresses for their big day or continuing to jet off for destination weddings, designers and bridal manufacturers made sure to serve up plenty of options.
