Although this is a US show, many British names were making their mark for 2014. So what are Pippa’s top picks from the catwalks? Let’s take a look…

American bridal giants Watters showed why so many real brides all over the world love their budget-friendly, fashion-forward designs. We loved this ultra-romantic ballgown on the catwalk. Mermaid ruffle skirt, lace, sweetheart neckline – it’s got everything! A cover-worthy gown.
Glitz and glamour at Maggie Sottero
The real brides’ favourite Maggie Sottero made headlines at the New York show with their gorgeous collection full of glitzy and glamorous dresses. The perfect collection for 20s-inspired brides! And there was no let up with the accessories, either – check out that chunky cuff!

The queen of the bridal silhouette, Suzanne Neville, has done it again with her new collection for 2014. The signature corsetry was still evident but we also loved these more gentle, flowing styles with intricate embellishments.
When it comes to bridesmaids, Dessy really have got it covered. Introducing hundreds of fashion-forward colours at the show, they really do have the perfect shade for every ceremony. A real one-stop shop for maids.
