I'm a wedding reporter at Insider, so of course I had to attend New York Bridal Fashion Week.

Also called Bridal Market, Bridal Fashion Week is where wedding-dress designers debut their latest lines and connect with sellers, industry professionals, and journalists like me.

I saw countless designer dresses throughout the week, but I found some gowns more memorable than others.

The silhouette of this Romona Keveza dress was simple, but the details made it stand out amid the sea of gowns.

I loved the heart that was etched into the bodice, the sheer bodysuit you could wear with the dress, and the detachable, tulle bow that functioned as a train.

The detailing on this sheer gown from Berta caught my eye.

I always find see-through wedding gowns interesting, but the contrast of the romantic shape and floral appliqué with the sheer fabric stunned.

I couldn't stop thinking about the neckline on this gown from Dana Harel.

The inspiration behind Harel's Water Lilies collection shined through on the Lily, which had a neckline created by two flower petals flowing up the bodice.

The flowers continued down the dress and on the back, creating an ethereal look.

Reem Acra made a classic shape feel fresh with floral embellishments.

This scoop-necked, off-the-shoulder dress was simple, aside from the textured flowers that adorned the gown from head-to-toe.

I could easily imagine a bride wearing this chic minidress from By Watters to an elopement or after-party.

I was a fan of the Marta gown's structure, as well as the contrast of the floral rosettes on the sleeves and back of the dress with its clean design.

The lace on Galia Lahav's Gina dress gave it a romantic look.

I loved the combination of lace and the off-the-shoulder neckline. Plus, the gown's skirt was detachable, making it even more fun.

I couldn't stop thinking about the floral detailing on the Pledge gown from the Justin Alexander Signature collection.

I loved the way the flowers on the strapless neckline and off-the-shoulder sleeves contrasted with the corset bodice, and the flowers cascading on the full skirt tied it all together.

The gown struck the perfect balance between structure and whimsy.

I was delighted when I saw this colorful dress from Markarian.

The Lulu minidress was covered in blue flowers and it matched with the coordinating Bailey Embroidered Blusher veil.

The dress felt retro and festive, and I thought it would be perfect for a rehearsal dinner or shower.

The Anta dress from Kyha Studios felt like a one-of-a-kind look next to the many white gowns I saw at fashion week.

This dress felt like a sultry alternative for brides who don't want to wear white on their wedding days, or a fun option for a reception or wedding event.

The sheer fabric, sparkly embellishments, and daring halter neckline made for a festive look.

This blue dress from Ines di Santo felt like something out of a fairy tale.

I immediately thought of Cinderella when I saw this Ines di Santo ball gown.

It was feminine and romantic with its blue fabric, tiered skirt, colorful floral appliqué, and sheer one-shoulder-neckline.

I was enamored with the back of the Kasia dress from Watters.

Everything about the Kasia dress was elegant, especially the square neckline and long sleeves.

But the standout feature was the back, which was sheer and lined with pearl buttons.

I loved the relaxed yet structured fit of the Salar dress from KYHA Studios.

The gown had a flowy look thanks to the scooped V-neckline and ruched skirt, but the delicate corset on the bodice ensures brides feel secure.

I adored the combination of the sheer skirt on this Romona Keveza gown.

The minidress itself was simple, but the addition of the sheer overskirt transformed it into a chic, statement outfit.

I loved the way it looked with the fluffy veil, too.

The texture on this minidress from Naeem Khan stayed with me.

The halter dress was adorned with scalloped lines of pearl beading that moved with the model as she wore it.

I couldn't imagine a more fun dress for a wedding reception.
