Weddings will continue to take inspirational cues from pop icons' choices, vintage influences, and (of course) fashion in 2023. The question is, what does all of this mean for your business and the couples you serve?

We invite you to the 2023 Bridal Edition, presented by Fashion Vows panelists Adrianne Harris, Alyssa J. Habchi, and Catherine Schuller.

Together they will discuss the new realities facing the fashion marketplace and what we can expect for the future of the bridal industry and decipher the codes of color, bridal trends, and body image style that makes sense for your couples by stepping into the world of fashion.

Traditionally, the bride has been the center of attention during the wedding day but today is a new day. International Fashion Stylist, Alyssa J. Habchi will introduce you to The New Groom of 2023. As a key member of the bridal party, the groom should never be overlooked.

Catherine Schuller will share the importance of identifying body figure types. Discover how to communicate to the bride and everyone else how to complement and enhance the features of each member by understanding the guidelines of proper proportion that will ensure the bridal parties 'aisle appeal' is on point.
