Bridal Fashion Week happens twice a year -- once in October and again in April.

We get a sneak peek at thousands of amazing, new wedding dresses from the industry's top designers (they'll show up in bridal salons this spring).

Many designers host runway shows, while others show off their dresses in a more intimate setting: by appointment, usually in a loft space or a large hotel suite.

This year is going to be particularly exciting because we're featuring four (yes, four!) LIVE runway shows on, and these are some seriously incredible celebrity designers: Claire Pettibone (Saturday at 11 am ET), Jenny Packham (Saturday at 5 pm ET), Monique Lhuillier (Sunday at 11 am ET) and Badgley Mischka (Sunday at 3 pm ET).

We'll also bring you bridal fashion reports via our "vlog" (aka video blog!) all weekend long on Fashion Channel.

Oh, and if you miss any of the weekend action, don't worry -- we'll recap everything for you with a special fashion edition of our show, The Knot LIVE, Monday at 3 pm ET on

See you at the shows!
