From NYC to LA: The Most Popular Wedding Dress Trends Across The Country

New York City

Both dress experts told me that their brides from the Big Apple have extremely sophisticated tastes. They aren't afraid to try some a little less traditional, like non-white dresses (the most popular alternatives in NYC right now are silver-y grey and blush) or a daring architectural shape. "New York City girls have fashion all around them," Michele explained. "So they tend to pick up trends first."

Can you tell what city a bride is from by looking at her gown? Kleinfeld's Fashion Director, Terry Hall and Michele Von Plato, the Senior Vice President of Product Development & Design at David's Bridal might be able to. Thanks to years of experience working with engaged women around the country (and globe!), both have keen sense of what's big in the world of weddings—and where.

Chatting with both experts to see what's trending in some of America's biggest metropolises, I discovered that there's a ton of white and ivory (and sometimes blush or silver—check out my slide on New York!) dress diversity happening right now.
