It’s the most wonderful time of the year… in bridal, of course! The 2023 New York Bridal Market is rapidly approaching and we are thrilled to be debuting the Rococo Collection at Horizon Bridal.

So, with #NYBM on the horizon… let the countdown begin! (See, what I did there? 🥁)
Our brides and industry friends are asking—what is the Rococo Collection all about? What the heck does “Rococo” even mean? While we talked about the inspiration behind the Rococo Collection and shared some #BTS sneak peeks in a recent blog, we’re breaking down some of the bridal aesthetics you’ll see in this collection. We don’t necessarily care about following the bridal trends, BUT these new wedding dresses are sure to set some.
Rococo, the 18th-century art movement, was luxurious, feminine, delicate, romantic, dreamy, and dramatic. The style was criticized at the time for its excess, frivolity, and playfulness. Our opinion? Those are the things that fuel our wildest daydreams.
Inspired by indulgence, joy, beauty, and romance, meet the bridal aesthetics of The Rococo Collection!
Hand-painted floral motifs weave through the collection, embracing the natural beauty of nature. Botanical elements are incorporated through hand-painting, appliques, beading, and embroidery— an enchanting essence through details never to be overlooked.
A corset bodice style with a modern twist pays homage to dramatic femininity and celebrates the intricate craftsmanship of the Rococo style. Meticulously designed as a structured work of art defines sculptural elegance.
Soft organza, sleek matte satin, and crisp taffeta create voluminous skirts, structured sleeves, and decorative elements that embody grace and grandeur with a touch of whimsy and romance.
Designed for effortless transition, convertible pieces like detachable sleeves and details allow brides to adapt their look on their wedding day. Convertible pieces combine functionality and aesthetics to express unbridled individuality and personal style.
Voluminous silhouettes, ornate beadwork, opulent detailing, indulgent fabrics, and bold colors embrace a maximalism aesthetic reminiscent of the grandeur of the Rococo art movement.
