2016 Bridal Trends

Our round up of the latest trends as seen on the London, Barcelona and New York bridal catwalks.

IN FULL BLOOM 
floraltrends1

Fabulous 3D floral and botanical appliques gave added interest and depth to bridal wear on the catwalks – team up with some additional textured fabric accessories to ensure the bloom doesn’t fade as your Big Day progresses.

TIERS IN HEAVEN
tieredtrends

Echoing the distinctly Hispanic feel of the recent Milan fashion catwalks, diaphanous tiers providing swishy movement were everywhere the bridal catwalks also. Balance the volume of this look with large chandelier earrings and statement headpieces (birdcages look great with this style).

TAILORED SOLUTIONS 
trouserstrends

Reflecting the trends in same sex marriage and civil ceremonies, designers are offering classic alternatives to ‘the dress’. Keep accessories simple and understated to work with the linear cut of these beautifully tailored suits.

DECO DELIGHTS 
decotrends

Art Deco designs continue to influence bridal fashion – notably the geometric Deco wave pattern which appeared in various forms and interpretations on the catwalks.  Delicate, dainty accessories tend to be overwhelmed by this style – real Deco Darlings should go for confident, bold, stand out pieces that reflect their inner 1920s goddess!

BACK ON TRACK 
lowbacktrends

No longer enough to look good from the front, many designers have now placed a greater emphasis on how brides look from behind – thanks to a multitude of transparent lace appliques, draping necklines and backless numbers.  A delicate backdrop necklace adds the perfect final touch to this sensuous bridal look.

FEATHERED FANCIES
feathertrends

Frou frou feathers added drama to many designer gowns – think languid trails of floating peacock feathers – the must have embellishment of the moment. Continue the theme with one of our many feathered hair accessories to add a little drama.

FORWARD THINKING

lowfronttrends

Slashed-to-the-navel necklines give plenty of room for long 30s styles pendants or lariat necklaces.  More daring brides could just simply use the decollete as the canvas for a sparkling show stopper (Old Hollywood styles are great for added pizzazz!)

GOLDEN GIRLS

Hints of blush and antique gold continue to add a warm glow to new designs. Check out our new range of rose gold accessories (here) along with classic yellow gold sparklies.

HELLO TO HOLLYWOOD

overlaytrendsA perennial favourite, the Old Hollywood 1950s screen siren look, makes its appearance once again with stunning column dresses with tulle overlays. Match with classic, vintage inspired pieces, many featuring marquis stones and timeless pearls.

Hope that provides plenty of inspiration for your 2016 wedding!

Wedding Hair Accessories With a Touch of Vintage

Allowing more flexibility than the traditional wedding headband, an increasing number of our brides are opting for wedding hair combs and wedding hair clips or pins that can be placed as a beautiful accent feature to their vintage look.

Pearl wedding hair combs and pins work well with so many vintage bridal looks with their varying colour shades from soft ivory to bright white.

That authentic flapper vintage wedding look can be easily attained with the addition of two wedding hair clips or slides worn on one side of the head – even better with some fabulous Marcel waves!

Natural Nuances

Perennial nature themes (think florals, buds, leaves) provide a burst of early bloom for those planning early 2013 weddings – we love the delicate rustic touches allowing you to ‘bring the outside in’ (a la certain Royal couple!)

Tweet, Tweet

Keeping with the general back to nature theme, we are seeing more and more ‘tweet’ influences (of the feathered, not the Twitter kind 🙂 – consider feather detailing to add to that  wonderful ‘lovebird’ feeling…….
