Modern Princess – Stunning gowns designed with a throwback to the ladylike and iconic style of Princess Grace with beautiful tailoring, gorgeous lace and tulle are bringing a quiet elegance and glamour to weddings this season.
Colored Wedding Gowns – Brides are becoming more fashion forward and expressing their unique style. We've seen more colored wedding gowns coming out of Bridal Market and mint green or pistachio from Monique L'hullier is one of the newest colors.
Craftsmanship – There is a newfound love for the craftsmanship of vintage jewelry and vintage elements that showcase a passion in design circa 30's and 40's era
Metallics – Metallic elements are still strong for this year and are showing up in new and sparkling ways like full gold and silver wedding cakes.
Feathers – Feathers and natural elements are taking a new form in weddings this year. Instead of the over the top Gatsby look we've seen over the last few years, feathers are taking more unique and understated role in design showing up in gorgeous feather chandelier lighting, placemats and bridal accessories.
Pantone Colors – While I don't think we will see a lot of Marsala, Pantone's Color of the Year, in wedding design this year, we will see the colors of the season Aqua and Indigo as anchor colors with mint green as a complementary foundation color and bright accents of Strawberry, Tangerine and Custard as a cheery palette.
Meaningful Bouquets – A book of wishes written by guests and family members at events leading up to the wedding so the bride can walk down the aisle carrying all the love and support for her marriage. Floral attached to book as a meaningful and new take on a bridal bouquet that becomes a true heirloom.
Playful Centerpieces - Centerpieces will embody a more deconstructed look and incorporate playful elements of ribbons and glass ornaments with flower blossoms or candles in them
Ceremony Seating - Furniture Pieces and Sofas in place of traditional chairs for Ceremony Seating
A Focus on Love and Storytelling - A refocusing on telling the story of the couple through thoughtful elements.
