During New York Bridal Fashion Week, designers that included Ines Di Santo, Jenny Packham and Monique Lhuillier showcased their 2018 spring and summer bridal collections. New looks that emerged on the runways included a lot of black detail; simple, understated silhouettes; intricate ball gowns; and more. Here is a peek at some of the collections.
Black details and embellishments dominated. Gowns by Reem Acra, left, and Marchesa, right, used the color to add a dramatic flair to the bodices and necklines of their dresses.

Short and Sassy
Breaking from tradition was expected for the designers Berta, left, and Naeem Khan, who featured nontraditional short dresses. See more from our bridal fashion coverage of both shows on Snap Chat.
There is no shortage of over-the-top couture gowns. But chic, simple wedding gowns are back in style and the designers Theia, left, and Ines Di Santo prove that you can still make a statement with less.

Love was big this season. The “Love Is Love” cape by Lela Rose, top, stood out as did the long gloves, above, with “love” and “kisses” printed on them at the Reem Acra runway show.
Textured Ball Gowns
Tiered and textured ball gowns were all the rage. Naeem Khan, left, added layers of feathers to create a modernized version of the traditional ball gown. Ines Di Santo, right, featured an intricate ruffled tiered gown with a cathedral train.
