dreaming of dresses

October 12 through the 16th marked the semi-annual New York bridal week, also known as Bridal Market where designers introduced us to their Fall 2013 collections.  As I have mentioned before I have a huge  interest in fashion.  I have always dreamed of attending one of the fashion weeks in New York and especially dream of attending Bridal Market.  For now I will have to settle with following along some of my favorites in the wedding industry on Instagram.  I especially loved the detailed glimpses that one of my favorite sources for bridesmaid dresses, Bella Bridesmaid, gave me.  Here are some images from their Instagram feed showcasing the latest trends in bridesmaid and party dresses.

I love how more and more designers are creating bridesmaid dresses that double as a party dress too.  I could definitely see myself wearing any of the above to a holiday party this year.  Which trend above is your favorite?  Would you dress your bridesmaids in any of the above?  Let me know what you think!
