Bridal fashion week is not like other fashion weeks. For one thing, the pace is slower. Literally, as models have to tread carefully, so as to not trip over the intricate tulle gowns they’ve been fastened into. Rather than including a wide range of style genres, as NYFW is wont to do, almost all of the bridal designers opt for pretty, romantic and white creations, often festooned with flower decals, crystals and lace.

For the Spring/Summer 2017 season, Marchesa decided to include all of the aforementioned details. Their collection aimed to replicate a trip through an enchanted garden, replete with flowers in blossom as the sun rises. “Glistening crystals and pearls against sleek bodices and ethereal gowns are reminiscent of morning mist atop of petals in a wildflower meadow. Springtime buds in rosy ombres and dip-dyed blushes are blooming in layered tiers and ruffles over silk organza,” read a press release accompanying the show.

The show included an off-the-shoulder gown in soft tulle, with 3D floral embellishments dripping down a circle skirt and an ivory mermaid frock with a detachable peplum. The Marchesa show is undoubtedly one of the most romantic of New York’s bridal week, and this year, designers Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig did not disappoint.

Here, take a peek at the backstage scene of their bridal show, where blushing brides and sparkling baubles vie for the spotlight.
