Team Savvy took Las Vegas by storm August 26 thru August 28 to see all the latest in bridal fashion at the The Knot Couture Show Bridal Market. All of the hottest bridal designers were represented at Market, and Savvy Bridal got the first look!
What Really Happens at Market?
Bridal Market is a multiday event that gives bridal boutiques all over the country the opportunity to speak to brand representatives and purchase new merchandise for their boutiques. Bridal Markets put on by The Knot always kick-off with an exclusive party for the bridal boutique owners and employees who made the trip to Market. This year’s party was on the rooftop of the SLS Las Vegas. The party had a retro pool party theme with a great DJ and fabulous drinks and appetizers. There is also usually an education opportunity for the bridal professionals at Market. This year, Wendy Rivera, International Bridal Boutique and Weddings Professional Specialist, gave two seminars at the Couture Show titled “Finding Your Voice in a Crowded Marketplace” and “7 Lies Bridal Boutiques Believe.”
What Designer Did We Love?
Team Savvy loved a few new brands this year but ultimately our eye kept going back to Enchanting by Mon Cheri. We were impressed as always and we are excited to bring you the new 2018 Spring season collection by Mon Cheri Enchanting curated specifically for our Savvy Bride. These gowns are all very fashion forward and reasonably priced.
What Trends Did We See?
The most popular trend at Market this year was slits. Almost every gown had a slit down the front, adding the perfect amount of skin to the dress. Spaghetti straps are also still popular, along with the classic lace fit-and-flare look.
Savvy Bridal had a wonderful time at The Knot Couture Bridal Market. We worked, ate delicious food, and saw some pretty sights. Check out our photos from Las Vegas Bridal Market below!
