The room was buzzing with excitement ahead of Oscar de la Renta's show - not only because it was ending the extravaganza of Bridal Market, but also because we all knew we were in for something special. And boy were we...

"I've never seen such beautiful designs in my entire life," gushed Brides Fashion Director, Bryony Toogood. "It was the most phenomenal, the most beautiful, interesting, gorgeous collection ever."

Oscar de la Renta has bewitched us, body and soul! He dazzles the senses with his statement earrings, delicate fabrics, extravagant veils and immaculate production.

"The show had everything: from lace, to column dresses, dramatic tulle capes, flashes of light blue, a vibrant red gown, fur boleros, feathers - you name it, he's done it," said Bryony.

And the show really was all encompassing: it even featured the cutest bridesmaid dresses and perfectly bridal (yet modern) hair and make-up.

Complementing the beautiful gowns were larger than life earrings and the most delicate of grey-blue nail polish - beautiful!

We've just seen Elizabeth Fillmore's latest collection and have fallen in love with the New York-based desingners' collection.

Fashion Director Bryony Toogood said: "She [Fillmore] does beautiful boho lace-over-lace gowns, but she's also done amazing structured dresses this year too. She's working with the most gorgeous Italian lace, no French lace to be seen - and it's absolutely stunning."

Our favourite look was the cut lace with a bustle-like peplum on the back - absolutely exquisite.

"Although she's also done a laser-cut dress with a high-low hem with a lot of structure that is truly amazing. It looks like laser cut leather because the lace is so matt, but it's lace. It's fabulous," said Bryony.

Ahead of today's exciting show (Oscar de la Renta, don't you know) we're taking a look at the other designs we've seen that deserve a mention.

Badgley Mischka's dream worthy gowns continued the exit dressing trend with stunning backs. Our favourite look? The debutant ball gown with delicate crystal-covered cap sleeves and sexy deep V-back.

Meanwhile, Ines di Santo brought us dramatic details with her curve-hugging frocks and glamorous ball gowns.

But most romantic of all? We were bewitched by Douglas Hannant's brides. Reminiscent of Alexander McQueen's breathtaking silk eye covers and masks - we loved the dramatic feel of this deeply romantic collection.

Last night we headed from Vera Wang's show straight to see Rivini's latest designs. How would we describe the collection? Stylish, classic and full of playful bows and fun feathers. Images are yet to come, but we promise they will be worth the wait!

SEE RIVINI'S 2012 COLLECTION

Amsale's show took place shortly afterwards, with a definite focus on fit, cut and shape. The demure dresses with surprising back offered a touch of drama: with keyhole, illusion lace panels and those girly bows we've seen elsewhere.

Last October, Vera Wang shocked us with black wedding gowns - and this time around she has shocked us yet again. This time she had us seeing red. Literally.

Red and burgundy dresses made their way down the runway to dramatic effect...

"This season 'beautiful dream' as Vera put it, is bright and bold. Vera showed us four shades from dark red (dahlia) through to a vermillion - she described it as a celebration of love - romantic, seductive and sexy.  And the dresses lived up to the description" said Fashion Director Bryony Toogood.

From hand draped tulle strapless trumpet dresses with uber-fitted corsets to tufted taffeta and lace layers on a ball gown - this collection had it all: "There were strict high necks with naked backs too, but my favourite was the dahlia strapless open back v-neck ball gown with tiered skirt and hand-cut petal detail, utterly divine and easy to picture in ivory - which inevitably these dresses will be ordered in. I'm sure we can expect to see the coloured version on a red carpet soon," added Bryony.

A quick update before we see the exciting new collection from Vera Wang - We've just seen the latest designs from Jim Hjelm Bridal, Lazaro, Tara Keely and Noir!

The bridal looks - and bridesmaid looks for that matter - are brilliant.

SEE OUR FAVOURITE LOOKS FROM THE RUNWAY HERE...

Speaking about Jim Hjelm's brides and bridesmaids, Fashion Director Bryony Toogood commented: "It was a simple collection, but quite a fresh one too - fresh and flirty. Those bridesmaid dresses in particular are great party dresses; they're the kind of thing you would wear after a wedding. They're brilliant."

Peplums made appearances for brides and bridesmaids - as did the purple hues we've been seeing of late. "There's lots of lilac and purples around, I particularly liked Tara Keeley's high-low hem dress," said Bryony.

Another trend stopped on the runway were embellished and bejewelled belts in particular black belts with beaded details, continuing the black and white trend we saw at Alfred Angelo yesterday.

The real highlight was Lazaro's final gown: larger than life with the colours to prove it. The Wisteria tulle gown had layers of ivory, lilac and aqua. "When the model walked down the runway it looked like it was all one colour, but it had these exciting tones hidden beneath - really gorgeous," added Bryony.

Heading to the meatpacking district for drinks and an exclusive preview of Jenny Packham's new collection, we can't help but be excited.

SEE THE 2013 JENNY PACKHAM COLLECTION HERE

"Jenny Packham's frocks are all about the Gatsby-inspired deco details: 1920's chic, flapper style beading - soft lines and silhouettes," explained Brides Retail Editor, Arabella Dupont.

Describing the new collection as fantasy, Monique Lhuillier presented her Spring 2013 collection of wedding and bridesmaids dresses together with her beautiful china and glass collections for Waterford.

"Highlights for me?" asked Brides Fashion Director, Bryony Toogood, "Literally every dress! From the sweet girliness of 'Forever' the blush draped tulle trumpet gown with sweetheart neckline and 'Dream' in blush Chantilly lace with matching veil to the red carpet-worthy 'Champagne' with its gold embroidered tulle and cap sleeved illusion neck. They are utterly breathtaking."

A big feature from Monique's collection includes bow belts - most of the dresses had them particularly on the front. The bridesmaids were equally stylish in shades of Auvergne through to lilac, cobalt blue to pale grey with lots of draping and silk in hazy flower prints.

The new china collection is also noteworthy: the white with baby pink border and blush champagne glasses were our favourites!

Two dresses in one: usually this means you have one very over-the-top dress and then a very simple one hidden underneath. Think again. Reem Acra has raised the bar yet again, this time bringing us a triple wonder: three gowns in one.

Yes, that's right. One massive gown of sparkly tulle with hidden layers of texture and wonder beneath: it really is a sight to behold.

The heavily pearl and sparkle-embellished gowns are a mix of ruffles and tulle - perfect for a bride who wants to shine and sparkle on her big day!

Brides Fashion Director, Bryony Toogood commented: "Like debutantes at the legendary white ball, Reem Acra sent out a young, fresh but sophisticated collection of ball gowns."

Next up on the list of bridal greatness: Marchesa. British actress and co-founder of the luxury label, Georgina Chapman, celebrated her birthday today - and in similar celebrations we gushed over her and co-designer Karen Craig's latest designs.

In a similar vibe to their latest spring/summer collection, we saw plenty of embellished illusion necklines and tiered waterfall skirts to die for.

Heavily embellished bridal clutches also made an appearance, as well as playful short dresses and sexy high-low hemlines.

"Marchesa really vamped up bridal bling with a mix of embellished bodycon-tight bodices and crystal bathed ball gowns with very full skirts," explained Retail Editor Arabella Dupont.

Claire Pettibone's capsule collection of eight dresses has left us speechless!

Her eight dresses, aptly called Windsor Rose China, and inspired by the print itself - is truly breathtaking: "In true Claire style, she's used lots of lace to create stunning bohemian gowns. My favourite is 'Abbey,' a long-sleeved cotton lace dress with a silk tulle skirt - absolutely beautiful!" said Brides Fashion Director, Bryony Toogood.

"She [Pettibone] has amazing attention to detail - from little flashes of blue in her gowns to some lightly dip-dyed tulle details, and those stunning tattoo backs!"

But best of all were the antique jacquard pieces at the waist - the perfect detail with just the right amount of glamour for a boho-chic bride.

A simple look back at previous Watters collections reveals the playful grace of their designs: the simple lines and delicate fabrics. The new collection proved to be as accessible, fun and beautiful as ever.

"It was a very light collection, full of simple but fun fabrics with little surprises here and there," explained Fashion Director Bryony Toogood. "The lace edging on the organza skirts and little touches of sparkles hidden underneath tulle were little bursts of excitement really."

The bridesmaids, with their sexy and flattering draped short dresses in cobalt blue and lavender lilac, especially caught our eye. We truly think lilac is due a comeback!

But our favourite gown? It's a tossup between a the heavily embellished bodice and soft mermaid-tail dress and the short ruffled dress with a black belt.

And the flower girls? "They were classic Watters flower girls: really cute with ruffles, shift sleeves and just cute all round," added Bryony.

The Alfred Angelo was fresh and surprising. The white gowns were as classic and timeless as ever, with an exciting twist at the end with black and white detailing on the beautiful gowns - made for the daring bride, no doubt!

But our favourite look had to be the modern and fashion-forward peplum dress, cinched at the waist with a black ribbon: "That dress was really made for the modern, slightly daring bride in my eyes. Really fab," explained Arabella Dupont, Brides Retail Editor.

And the bridesmaids? They were bright in tropical colours and elegant in shades of grey...

AUTUMN 2012 BRIDAL WEEK TREND REPORT

In the office the excitement is palpable and the fashion editors and advertising team head to the big apple to see the latest spellbinding collections from the biggest names in the bridal industry: from Vera Want to Monique Lhuillier and Oscar de la Renta!

"I always look forward to the sheer gorgeous glamour of the Oscar de la Renta show," said Fashion Director Bryony Toogood. "It's held in a private room with just a small number of attendees, beautiful models, immaculate hair and make-up and of course to-die for dresses. For me the icing on the cake is watching Mr de la Renta with his movie star-looks and sense of style, standing backstage making sure each girl looks perfect and making last minute tweaks, so old school. It's such a privilege to be there!"
