During our market event, we hosted two exclusive runway shows. Each show showcased the top three bridal looks from each of the participating designers’ collections. The beautiful gowns were styled with jewelry, veils, and hair adornments provided by the accessory designers.
Our Thursday afternoon show was sponsored by BEV, where attendees were served delicious rosé.
Friday morning’s show was sponsored by OHZA MIMOSAS, which was a perfect way to start the day.

Horizon was great at creating a sense of community within the designers, something I had not experienced before and truly enjoyed. Alyson was very helpful and open to suggestions, so everything felt comfortable and easy.
I am super excited to see Horizon growing as there are no doubts the great potential this market is able to achieve.
To simply put it: Horizon Bridal is the best! It's the bridal market experience that I have always been wanting. Alyson has poured her heart and soul into making Horizon Bridal an inclusive and inviting space for designers and buyers alike! The atmosphere is great!
It's so welcoming!
Horizon Bridal couldn't be in a better space! The natural light that pours into the area makes it feel so open even with the booths set up! You also can't beat the price for the venue and booth size.
I also sincerely appreciate that Alyson listens to feedback and takes action to improve what she can so that the next year is better.
Horizon Bridal was a great experience. I can’t thank Alyson enough. She went above and beyond to accommodate my budget and brand needs. The space was a beautiful backdrop for my accessories and everything was incredibly organized.
Alyson has created an amazing group of designers that value community over competition. So many of these women have become good friends of mine and we continue to support one another long after market week. I am looking forward to watching the continued growth and opportunity in the coming years.
Can’t wait to be back in October!
I had the pleasure of showing at Horizon Bridal Market during the Fall of 2021. It was by far, the most pleasant and stress-free bridal markets I've ever done in my 20 years of showing at NYBM!
Alyson was so accommodating and on top of everything. The space was well prepared and there were no issues with my booth or the furniture that I selected.
The runway show that the designers all collaborating in was a great success too!
As for the group of designers that showed, they were all so genuine and helpful to one another. Sharing steamers and helping one another during set up and breakdown. I felt like I walked away with a dozen new friends!
Horizon Bridal is a true collective. <3
Being a part of Horizon Bridal has been a positive uplifting experience for me as a designer and small business. I joined HB during the beginning of the pandemic
I had planned to participate in my first bridal market week and HB felt like somewhere I belonged. Having the opportunity to present on the online platform amid the pandemic helped to legitimize my small business. Up until that point I was reaching only my local brides within my showroom.
I really enjoy talking with all of the designers. Alyson has created a community where we can all talk to each other and ask questions. For the most part, what we do as designers we kind of learn through experience.
It feels great to be included in this community. Not only are the designers amazing, the buyers are too. The buyers that are interested in HB designers, seem to "get us". They see that our small businesses care about topics such as inclusion and sustainability.
I'm happy to be in the HB collective and talk about Alyson every chance I get. Not only am I incLuded in a great group, I have become friends with so many of the designers and buyers.
Thank You Alyson & Horizon Bridal.
a love note from hb’s founder
Horizon Bridal has been a passion project of mine since 2017. It started as a small idea brought up at a NYBM dinner with my dear designer friend and amazing mother. A few years and markets later, it was time to bring Horizon Bridal to life.
Although HB’s first in-person market was supposed to launch last year in 2020 (we all know how that went), I was lucky enough to embrace the change and pivot to create an even better platform than I originally planned. Having a virtual option opened HB up to new possibilities that an in-person market wouldn’t have.
Throughout the ups and downs, I am so thankful for all of the designers and boutique owners who have supported and stuck with HB from the beginning. YOU are the reason Horizon Bridal exists. Thank you!
With all of my heart,

My dear husband for driving all over for last minute errands and lugging all of the furniture, decor, and more back and forth in a gigantic U-Haul.

I love you all. Thank you.
