Our Picks from Fall 2015 New York Bridal Week

So now that I have pulled myself away from my Instagram feed, Women's Wear Daily updates, and just overall stalking of Bridal Fashion Week... I can share with you all just a few of my favorites that we should be expecting to hit wedding aisles for Fall 2015. Now you may wonder "Can I pull off a low back?"  "Will my grandmother appreciate that Angelina Jolie slit?" or "Will the aisle have to be six feet wide to fit that ball gown?" BUT there is truly a gown for every bride. This presentation of bridal fashion really grasped my attention. For the past couple of seasons, I have been nodding off at my computer screen clicking next, next, next past solid lace creations. Now don't get me wrong, I love angelic lace dresses as much as the next gal, but living in the Heart of Dixie, I have seen the look a little too much. This season, I found myself gasping, drooling at times, and even bouncing up and down as I saw long sleeved, ballerina inspired, perfectly bejeweled creations float down the runways. Without further ado, I share with you in no particular order my favorites from Bridal Market Fall 2015.
