Whether you are on the guest list, or you are the belle of the ball, there are essential insider tips you must know for planning, or attending, the perfect wedding in style. Either inspired by the hottest new runway designs, or a forecast for the upcoming year, these are the top trends to look for.
What was once a colour deemed only suitable for a funeral, black is now the “it” colour of any fashionable hitching. From the dresses and accessories, to the flowers and the decor, ebony is quickly replacing ivory in the New Year’s weddings.
Pink, pink, and more pink! We all know that be a bridesmaid calls for hideous colours and ruffles galore. Fortunately, that won’t be the case this spring. Another addition to this trend is mixing it with baby blue hues to add a touch of sweetness, and giving the bridesmaids a much fresher look.
Red wine is sure to be at the reception, but now it’s making an appearance at the church as well. Wedding dresses, as well as the bridesmaid dresses, are getting a splash of sexy with red this season.
Got luscious legs up to your neck? Don’t be afraid to show them off after being shamefully hidden all winter. Spring is the perfect time to flaunt those babies in a dangerously short mini dress. Pair it with oh-so-high stilettos and you are sure to be talk of the town.
Victorian styles flooded the runways across Europe this season. Flower embroidery adorning deep shades of green, red, blue, and black were sure to be seen. If you’re taking a trip to Ireland, be sure to check out for wedding dresses in Dublin.
Look like a Greek goddess in an endless empire gown that is off the shoulders; elongating your neck and highlighting your collarbone. If you have a taller, more slender frame, this is the perfect dress for you.
When you think of Queen Elizabeth, you think of luxurious fabrics, extravagant floral appliqués, detailed beading, and brocade embellishments. Cascades of silk and satin, with silver and gold accents are the epitome of glamour and elegance this spring. You’ll feel like a queen in shimmering shades of silver, pearl, and off-white.
When looking for romantic touches, forego lace and ruffles. Although they are sweet, and looked great in grandma’s wedding photos, they are outdated. Oversized bows add a much-needed dose of femininity to the modern style of frill free, clean-cut styles. Strategically placed at the small of the back can balance the shoulders and draw attention away from your midsection.
