Back to Front

As more designers create fabulously embellished back panels on dresses, expect brides to look as good from behind as from the front. We are seeing increasing demand for back jewellery and striking wedding hair accessories that beautifully frame vintage style chignons.

50 Shades of Non-ivory

Soft tonal pastel shades of taupe, gold and palest pink continue to gather favour on the international bridal catwalks. Gilt or gold accessories will complement the warmth in these shades beautifully.

Downton Delights

No doubt influenced in some small part by Downton Abbey, designers have introduced many Edwardian inspired touches in their wedding gown styling. Team with simple ribbon headbands and add more intricate flourishes through your choice of wedding jewellery and accessories (don’t forget the all important brooches and cocktail bags for this look).

Time for Tea

Tealength (or ballerina length) dresses heark back to a glamorous 1950s matinee look. These elegant gowns were everywhere on the 2014 catwalks and are just made for pearls – team with pearl earrings, pearl necklaces, pearl hair accessories and pearl bracelets for sophisticated vintage elegance.

Flirty 30s 

Forget demure 30s dresses – welcome clingy, sensual satin bias cut gowns to showcase the female form as brides shimmy down the aisle. Choose sultry, sassy, minimalist bridal accessories to complement the clean lines of this look.

Bridal and Wedding Trends 2012

So the question has been popped, the venue booked and now for the most important part – shopping! Where to begin? What’s in, what’s out, what are the hot trends on the bridal scene? We’ve put together a fab synopsis of ideas influenced by the leading bridal designers on the international catwalks and suggestions of some of our beautiful bridal accessories…………

TRENDS BY VINTAGE ERA

VICTORIANA

Underwear becomes outerwear – Victorian corsets (and high necklines, more of which later) have made their way from the fashion runways to bridal runways. Chokers are key to achieving the elegance of this look, teamed up with crystal teardrops on all accessories.

Victoriana

ART DECO

Art Deco influences continue to delight – think geometric patterns, long pearls and lots of fringes!

Art Deco

1930s

Greta Garbo and Jean Harlow style reinvented through dropped waist, swishy gowns – team with hints of Deco style and a flourish of feathers……

1930s

1940s

The ‘Golden Age’ of Hollywood – add a dash of Katherine Hepburn glamour with our fab vintage inspired hair accessories and check out our REAL vintage jewellery and brooches to complete your look.

1940s

1970s

Boho chic, gypsy feel (but less ‘My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding’ and more of a sassy ethnic twist) – go for gold to achieve that sun-kissed St Tropez touch of magic!

1970s

TRENDS BY DRESS STYLE

BALLERINA

Black Swan when she was still White! Ethereal, romantic , sweet- add delicate accessories with the lightest of touches.

Ballerina

LACE

All hail Princess Kate for allowing us to rediscover the fabulousness of lace – regal, understated beauty.  Pearls with lace – strawberries with cream – can’t have one without the other…….

Lace

OLD HOLLYWOOD GLAMOUR

Grace Kelly drama with a sophisticated sense of style – check out our multistrand pearl necklaces and classic style earrings which work a treat with this look.

RUFFLES

Did they ever go away? Anyway they’re back and bigger than ever! Delightful, frothy girly – team with our fabulous spray pins and organza cuff for that light-as-air feel.

Ruffles

HALTERNECKS

Developing the Victoriana theme, designers are buttoning us up at the neck – but don’t panic, with their sheer overlays, these halternecks are anything but prudish – team with chandelier earrings and a fabulous multi-layered bracelet for a statement look.

Halter

SCULPTURAL

For the modernista, city chic bride, clean simple lines which work great with Deco geometrics or can be softened with the addition of a structured flower (orchids are great).

sculpt

SHORT

1960s influences creeping through here, capturing the trend for a second bridal ‘dance’ dress (one where your legs are unemcumbered with a ton of organza!) – bigger, bolder accessories suit this look – go for noticeable, dramatic statement pieces.

Botanic Beauties

Vintage botanical prints have not only seen a re-emergence on the homewares front but have been recently translated into high fashion on the global catwalks (see Miu Miu and Pucci).

Leaves, branches, plants, fern prints – nature takes a step back to basics – design inspiration from time immemorial is revisited once more.

                                   
We are delighted to see this trend filter through to the bridal market in the form of the most delicate filigree botanical features on dresses and accessories.
                           
In keeping with this trend (fab one for Spring/Summer 2012 brides) we have introduced fabulous hints of foliage in our latest designs.
    
Layering original vintage components ensure impactful centrepieces (replicating foliate patterns on many antique pieces)….while keeping the design simple and pared back lends the ultimate touch of delicacy and femininity to your perfect bridal accessories!

Vintage Hat Trick! Kate rocks Deco styling

Our third UK celeb vintage bride in as many months – retro inspired bridal wear is definitely having its moment! It was no suprise to us that Kate Moss chose a vintage look (we had a 50/50 odds on whether it would be Deco or Boho inflenced).

Kate’s fabulous John Galliano dress and veil echoed flowing, understated 1920s style with a boho chic informality. Kate is ahead of the bridal fash-pack (no surprise there!) with her subtle hints of gold reflecting the bolder hues apparent on the recent 2012 Barcelona catwalks (by Rosa Clara).

Gold accessories are making a comeback as the perfect accent to creamy ivory tones of vintage lace and tulle.  Browse some of our fab gilt accessories for your Big Day.

  

Fab choice also for late summer and Autumn brides who wish to capture those fading rays of summer – gold with topaz reflects the season beautifully. See our complete collection at http://www.vintagebridalaccessories.co.uk
