The wedding bells are tolling this week for editors and soon-to-be brides as Bridal Market takes over Manhattan. Yesterday, we got a peek at Dennis Basso‘s sparkly, lacy confections at Kleinfeld Bridal, and boy, were they dreamy.

What’s your favorite wedding cake flavor?
My own, which would be red velvet.
What’s the most outdated bridal custom?
I think a wacky bridal custom is not seeing the groom the night before or the day of the wedding, even though you’ve already lived with him for six years.
Who gives the best wedding toasts?
The best man at my wedding! His speech was really sweet and very touching.
What’s the strangest proposal story you’ve heard?
A friend of mine went mountain climbing at Katmandu, and her boyfriend proposed to her at the top of the mountain.
Tell us about your latest bridal collection!
I used the European bride and translated her to the modern American woman. It’s a little bit revealing and a little bit covered up. She’s elegant and sophisticated, yet modern.
