"From the purist porcelains of Asia to the ancient urns of Greece, organic earthenware inspires the strikingly molded gowns of the newest bridal collection from AMSALE. Crisp fabrics such as silk magnolia, Italian double-sided duchess satin, and gazar are carefully draped into sleek profiles mimicking the art of throwing clay; and embellishment is created through a unique layering of fabrics mimicking textural plaster. - Michael Cho, head designer

Whether it's ball gowns with structured corsets only royalty can walk in, or a soft mesh covered in handmade flower appliques you can drool over. Whether your childhood wish was to run through a castle and have the perfect hand-drawn princess portrait, or perhaps being a forest fairy, this collection is all about putting the child within you at the forefront. Empowering the little girl who wanted anything and everything. It's nothing but simple, yet simplifies the meaning of effortless beauty. Be ready for gloves, trains, capes, veils and everything in between, all to make one day dream come true." - The Berta team

"We are excited to showcase in our first-ever Bridal Fashion Week, introducing our couture runway collection 'Essence.' I chose to create the Essence line to really show what inspired me to become a designer which is creating lots of texture. From fabric manipulation and Swarovski crystals to Ostrich feathers and 3-D floral patterns. Creating real-life textures such as the countless hand-beaded pearls for our one-of-a-kind brides. This runway collection elevates a form of uniqueness and innovation that we can not wait to bring to our brides." – Esé Azénabor, owner, creative director, and head designer

The collection embodies the raw passion of love and encourages brides to express their hearts' desires without conforming to traditional norms.

Designer Kate Halfpenny draws on her own experience striving for balance in her personal and work lives, and explores how that very imbalance creates unexpected and exquisite consequences and opportunities. These new dresses and accessories embody her experience with unexpected detail and exaggerated accessories. Sleek lines are interrupted by organza frills bursting from a seam like the crest of a wave, or cascade to the floor like water gently caressing the shore. With this new collection, Kate invites brides-to-be to revel in the joy of the unexpected and play with these new pieces to find their own unique balance." - Kate Halfpenny, founder and designer

"Thirty-Five. With this beautiful epigraph—a number that sounds outstanding—JESUS PEIRO presents its bridal fashion collection for 2024. It describes the years that have passed since the brand was founded in 1988. Thirty-five years dedicated to our passion and what we love to create: wedding dresses made in Spain.

An intense week of fashion exhibitions in Paris aroused the inspiration of Merche Segarra, our lead designer, to create a tribute to all great fashion designers. Schiaparelli's graphic and sculptural impact; the brilliant and missed Albert Elbaz; Alaïa's extraordinary femininity and modernity, and the wonderful aroma of luxury and rigor of a centenary Dior, encouraged her to create a collection of unique dresses, each with its own character and delicate silhouette.

Because these dresses are our DNA, and our magnum opus, the 2024 collection is our tribute to the dress that elevates a woman in love into expressing her true beauty as a happy bride." - The Jesus Peiro team

"Experiencing the excitement, joy, love, and sense of commitment during my recent wedding to my beautiful wife, Kelsey, was a spectacular feeling that is almost indescribable. The excitement of wedding planning and envisioning a future with the person you love can be overwhelming, yet it all comes together in harmony as the date approaches. On the day of the wedding, the joy of seeing your loved ones gathered to celebrate your union is incredible. The love and connection you feel with your partner during the ceremony is a special moment that you will cherish forever and the memories you make are unimaginable. The Spring/Summer 2024 collection is an encapsulation of feelings and emotions. The creations are of dreams and inspired by the love, excitement, and beauty from our wedding day. Experience a blend of modern romance and contemporary beauty captured in every seam, every detail, and every unique gown." - Justin Warshaw, CEO and creative director

"The Spring/Summer 2024 collection is named after the poetic Nick Cave's song of the same title that was read by my sister, Sienna, at my wedding. The song was loosely inspired by Turner's paintings of ships. They depict the freedom of movement in fabric caught by the wind. There is something so powerful about silk in motion and I really wanted to bring that sense of power and beauty to the collection this season. Here, we highlight the Danielle gown, a direct replica of one of our bespoke brides, Danielle Copperman's dress. A strapless, elegant, and timeless style made from a beautiful pearl duchess satin that features a hidden corset with peeping visible bust cups at the neckline. The skirt is draped into the side waist and forms a sculptural cross-over and split detail, and the back of the skirt has volume tucked into the waist to form inverted box pleats which cascade into a dramatic train. The side split and deep pockets elevate this classic gown to a super sexy, romantic, and contemporary place. A versatile and very flattering gown for all body types." - Savannah Miller, founder and designer

"My brides are embracing their individuality and expressing their personal style. Incorporating unique, unexpected elements into your wedding day can make it truly unforgettable." - Charles Dieujuste, founder and designer

"If there is one thing that represents us, identifies us as Basque, which shapes and enriches our landscape, it is the rain. This water, so versatile and complete, which is given to us, and is called euria in Euskera, our language. ‘Ours’ translates to geuria. A beautiful play on words. (G)EURIA is the return to the origin of Sophie et Voilà, having drunk from the waters of experience throughout the years. It is a very us collection, and, like the rain, it is clean, natural, inevitable, unstoppable, and full of life. 20 designs made up of new materials, textures, and shapes without compromising the style of this house." - Sofía Arribas, creative director and Saioa Goitia, CEO

Courtesy of The Atelier Couture

"Inspired by the natural and romantic atmosphere from the writing style of the 'Stray Birds' by Rabindranath Tagore, The Atelier presents 'Thy Love' through the imagery of nature. In Tagore's eyes, the world needs love, and in life needs more love. Just as he wrote in his book, 'Stray Birds': 'Let this be my last word, that I trust thy love.' Love is like a beautiful poem with grass, fireflies, fallen leaves, birds, mountains, and rivers. Everything in nature is endowed with spirituality, as if the sky courts with the sea, and the bird's bill and coo with clouds. This anthropomorphic description is a meaningful interpretation of love, beautiful and romantic, deep and great." - The Atelier Couture team

"If kisses were stars, I would give you the sky" - The THEIA Bridal team

"This season we looked to the night sky—the shapes, colors, and explosions of the cosmos. Our bespoke couture collection reflects this through the luminous fabrics and metallic embellishments, and our made-to-order collection through sweeping necklines and ethereal trains, capes, and long-line boleros—which orbit the silhouette. The colors are inspired by the nebulas—silvery whites, blush pinks, and golds, contrasted by rich reds, aquamarine, and sapphire blue.

We are particularly proud of the lower-impact fabric choices we made in creating this collection, which is made-to-order and handcrafted in London. For the environmentally conscious bride, gowns are created in an FSC-certified viscose and acetate crepe satin, georgette and stretch satin, as well as taffeta, tulle, sequins and lace certified as recycled, and embellished with artisanal embroideries." - Brigitte Stepputtis, head of couture and bridal

"Woná Concept presents a new wedding line—Atelier by Wona. This collection was created with fine and exclusive lace in combination with classic designs that have already captured the hearts of brides all over the world. Woná seamstresses dedicated from 70 to 160 hours to create these intricately detailed hand-sewn gowns, and the first atelier collection includes 20 stunning garments. The mermaid silhouette prevails and appears in 12 exquisite gowns, the rest are sheath and A-line styles. Woná Concept designers see the perfect wedding attire for the brides with essential attributes of the collection: trains from chapel to monarch length, open shoulders, and accentuated waist." - The Woná Concept team

"This dress is breaking the rules of bridalwear, taking it to the level of sophistication of haute couture. The gown is designed for the bride that won't be satisfied with the status quo, or as Marilyn Monroe once said, 'A wise girl knows her limits, a smart girl knows that she has none.'" - The Yellow By Sahar team
