Bridal Market Picks

October 16, 2017

Bridal Market is always a whirlwind of inspiration for us here at District Weddings and we couldn’t be more excited to share with you our top picks and inspirations!

BERTA collection is derived in many ways from the world of Botany, and in particular – Flowers. As the crown jewels of the plants world, Flowers are fascinating to behold, magical to smell and have an endless array of colors. They arouse all senses, and have an admirable inner-complexity.


Galia Lahav designed a line that allowes the bride’s desire to express her individuality in her daily life with her scent, and through fashion on her wedding day, ushered in new approaches to gossamer tulles, fine laces and intricate embroidery, woven into our interpretation of how the world of scents would come to life in our latest collection, Florence by Night.

Ines Di Santo created a collection where you will find presence. Signature pearls, fabrics and beaded embroidery come together to create gowns that are as varied as the city and the authentic women that inspired them.
