Martha Stewart Weddings Annual Bridal Market Party!

Posted by

I hope everyone has been inspired by our bridal market coverage! It’s always such fun to see all of the new collections (I hope you've been checking out our dress galleries, too)!

For more than 16 years, we at Martha Stewart Weddings have marked this special time (and the industry) by inviting our favorite designers, retailers, and more to a big bash the Monday night during Bridal Fashion Week. In recent years, we've welcomed our guests to the MSLO offices for the party.And true to form, we followed our own advice on planning, too. We picked a theme (it was based on our Fall issue's "Clearly Color" story, which dictated our color palette) and hired great vendors (and by great, I mean super talents who were nice, focused, and easy to work with).

Over the course of next week or so, we're going to give you an inside peek into our party. Maybe you'll recognize a face or two, or maybe you'll get an idea for your next celebration or find a new vendor. Can't wait? No worries. We listed all our great vendors below -- they come very highly recommended -- and check out the gallery of snapshots from Readyluck.
