Another #bridechat has passed us by! Every Thursday at 2pm EST we love hearing from our brides and wedding professionals on Twitter! Today was no exception! Here are some great topics we covered…
Children- Whether you make the decision between an Adult-Only reception or to invite children to both; it is ultimately your decision. If you decide to go with the Adult-Only reception then the people that want to be there will be there. They will plan accordingly to be a part of your special day! If you do invite children know that you can always find children-friendly resorts, or create activity kits and kiddie corners at the reception for them to play. It is the concern of the parents of the children and their responsibility; so don’t stress! Just enjoy your wedding!
Destination Weddings- Again, we can’t reiterate enough that when it comes to weddings, the friends and family that want to be there, will be there. The people that matter in your life and you in theirs will make it a priority to share in this monumental event. Consider other ideas like the time of year..when it comes to prices of flights, or consider the next topic….
Skype- With all of the technology we have nowadays, it’s easier to connect when loved ones are a world away. Creating a skype account for the family and friends that can’t make it is a great way to broadcast the wedding in it’s entirety while those loved ones watch from the comfort of their own home. It’s simple enough to do with an Ipad! It’s a great way to include those that want to be there but can’t. Trust one person or two who are willing to help with the recording of it; you may even get lucky with a Photographer who might help out too! You never know!
Cross-Culture Weddings- More common than ever before; these weddings are a great way to celebrate the heritages of the couple. Incorporate different foods into the reception menu that speak from both cultures. Do a traditional ceremony specific to your culture. And also consider some music and colors!

Another Bridal Market has come and gone here in New York City leaving behind a flourish of organza, tulle, beads and lace. After viewing hundreds of dresses, here are The Aisle’s favorite looks and trends.
Many designers opted for lighter fabrics and interesting textures…say goodbye to heavy beadwork and embellishment. This Spring Bridal Market was all about amazing details like feathered appliques at Angel Sanchez to rippling layers of chiffon at Vera Wang. Texture is in!
Last fall, Vera Wang caused a stir by introducing black for bridal on her runway. This Spring collection was no different with crimson red and plum-colored confections of tulle; not one white gown was seen in her collection. Oscar de la Renta followed suit with his own version of a red bridal gown complete with a black lace mantilla veil, while also showing a pale blue fit and flare gown as well as a floral detailed number in pastels of blue, pink and green. Angel Sanchez also showed pale blue in his collection with two soft icy tulle creations.
One particular silhouette had it’s moment this week…the peplum. Seen on the Red Carpet this past award season and making cameos in Ready-to-wear lines; the peplum is huge! From Amsale’s asymmetrical satin tuft at the hip, to Elizabeth Fillmore’s high-low overskirt; this silhouette is chic, modern and wants to be worn.
Take an early peek at some of our favorite photos and gowns from our favorite time of year…New York Bridal Week. What are your favorites?

The Aisle New York went backstage yesterday at Angel Sanchez’ 2013 Spring Bridal Collection! We saw glimpses of hair by Leonard Zagami of AnthonyLeonard Salon for Moroccanoil and make-up by Jean Fayard for Clarins, in action. Youthful and ethereal, the models were given textured waves accented by plastic wrap headbands, inspired by the elaborate textures and beadwork of Angel’s gowns. The soft peaches and pale blues used in the make-up evoked the feelings of frost and ice.
The models walked the runway in fairy-like off white ball gowns and pale blue tulle. Angel Sanchez’ collection took traditional silhouettes and modernized them with asymmetrical sequined trims, geometric acetate details, feather appliques and ruffled layers of organza. Edgy but soft, Angel’s collection is perfect for the contemporary bride.
