Wedding belles look
for extra elegance
Dress designs more glamorous
Current wedding trends
are big glam, thoughtful
themes and lots of
attention to detail.
With what the 2013 bridal fashion shows have
revealed, next season's bride-to-be has a lot to look
Fashion forward designers have showcased ultra-
feminine wedding dresses that were detailed to the
Models glided the catwalks in mouth-dropping
designs featuring swathes of intricate material
complete with dainty florals, layered lace and
Many designers splashed their dresses this season
with bold strokes of colour, including smouldering
reds, heavenly blues, and bridal blushes.
It is not a must to wear a white dress anymore, but
it still has to look like a wedding dress. The trick is to
find a colour that's flattering to your skin tone, and
not everyone looks great in white.
Last year's royal wedding influenced wedding dress
trends. Thanks to Kate's long lace sleeves, there is a
greater variety of different necklines and sleeve
Strapless gowns will take a back seat to one
shoulder, illusion necklines, cap sleeves, and deep
Dresses will be much more romantic and elegant
than last year. Some will be long, fitted and sleek.
Others will be in pale colours such as blush. Above all,
expect more glamour.
From sparkly accents to faux fur shrugs, weddings
will look more expensive and have that little extra
''pop'' of opulence.
In flowers, big and lush bouquets are making a
comeback. Expect lots of multi-textured bouquets
with different hues. The vintage and rustic trends will
still be huge but will definitely be taken up a notch.
Couples are realising that not everyone can make
DIY look amazing. Therefore, many couples will start
buying their DIY details, and have florists and other
artists complete their vision for them.
From the bridesmaid dresses to the centrepieces,
the upcoming wedding seasons will have even less
symmetry and cookie cutter layout than before.
Expect different dresses and shoes on bridesmaids,
variations on details like table numbers and place
cards, and different rented furniture for each area.
Most of the time, all of these things will still be unified
by some type of central theme or mood.
Couples are starting to think of their wedding as
less of an impressive, but somewhat impersonal,
event and more of an intimate gathering.
Some weddings will have smaller guest lists to
achieve this, while larger weddings will use
communal dining tables, creating small spaces within
the event room to have the feel of a more inclusive
The colour palettes for 2012 are at seemingly
opposite ends of the spectrum. Super creamy neutrals
are very on-trend. However, extra bright pops of
colour will be present over spring and summer, such
as red-orange, lime greens, and royal blues.
Black is also back in a big way as an accent colour.
