This year, New York Bridal Market took place October 13-20, showcasing next fall’s wedding fashion collections from the foremost bridal designers in the industry. Perfect Wedding Guide was on hand in NYC to attend shows for designers such as Badgley Mischka, Angel Sanchez, Monique Lhuillier, and many others. Here,we report on some of the standout trends for fall 2011 wedding fashion.
Charcoal, blush and robinâ€™s egg blue were just some of the colors sighted at this seasonâ€™s shows. While venturing from white or ivory isnâ€™t for every bride, the boldness of the greys, soft pinks and blues made a splash with editors and wedding stylists alike.

Romance was in the air and definitely on the minds of designers when creating looks for fall 2011. Flirty details such as oversize bows, ruffles and lace, and 3-D floral embellishments were big trends on the runway.

Colored sashes were once all the rageâ€”this year, itâ€™s all about the bejeweled belt. We spotted lots of these beaded accessories on dresses. The intricate crystal detailing adds a bit of sparkle to an otherwise simple gown.
