If you’re set to marry in 2015 then this post is a must read, we’re rather excited about showing you some of the latest trends for both brides and bridesmaids that will really entice you laid back brides and enthuse you into getting organised and kitted out in the most fabulous gowns that are on the market right now. Designers have been both creative and clever in their ideas this year!
This year it’s all about the tulle skirt and cape details for brides. When we say tulle skirt it doesn’t have to be a full bodied princess skirt, there are so many shapes and silhouettes that have been designed to incorporate this luxurious fabric, its simply a case of selecting the right shape to suit you.
Skirts tend to be full length, while others are completely detachable, making them a winner all year round. Also consider applique with some pretty elegant floral lace added to your tulle overlay skirt or create ruffles and layers for that full frothy look. When ordering a tulle skirt, do ensure that the tulle is soft, durable and ultimately appropriate for an outer lay as tulle is traditionally an underlay fabric, some designers may try to sell you a cheaper tulle quality that should be used as underlay, which in turn will result in a course hand feel and give you bulky appearance.
So capes, yes this is a new unique look that isn’t for everyone, however I do feel that there really is something for everyone, there is such a diverse selection out there as each designer has jumped on this hot trend and put their own spin and flavour on it. For the daring there are full length hooded capes and superhero styles. While more classic looks include, short, high neck, lace designs that have been heavily appliqued and embroidered.
TIME FOR THE BRIDESMAIDS…
Bridesmaids also have the green light to wear tulle, traditionally reserved for the bride only, tulle has been introduced into bridesmaid ranges and it’s something every lady should be happy to wear. Nothing makes me feel more special than wearing a garment made from tulle and I’m pretty sure your best friends forever will feel the same way.
Looking forward to hearing from you and thanks for reading!
That’s right one of the biggest and hottest times in bridal wear and a time for all brides to be to get a tad excited about their upcoming wedding. As always our design team are following the latest trends and are also excited making preparations to begin new designs. This year Monique Lhuillier, Jenny Packham and of course Reem Acra made their legendary statement on the runway, with details oozing in lace tulle and vintage glam. It’s time to put your feet up and enjoy these new and very fabulous trends.
Not just lace sleeves but ever so elegant lace sleeves, the lace seen on the runway is barely there, but looking mega gorgeous in full length to capped. Just make sure you choose a pretty floral choice with pretty delicate edging.
We’ve always loved a wee bit of appliqué but this year it gets even better as it simply sparkles. Designers have polished off their stunning gowns by using shimmery bits and bobs and we think it looks absolutely amazing.
This year brides need to be looking for vintage silhouettes, so that’s basically any statement shape from the 20’s up to the 50’s. Sleek long gowns will always prove a winner in our eyes. And why not dabble in some elegant satin to finish the look.
They have been the hot topic of conversation for a while in the world of weddings, but bridal gowns are set to continue this trend with soft touches of pink, greys and mint to name a few.
Shrugs and Caplets
Don’t forget to accessorize that gown; this year pretty tulle caplets and adorable lace shrugs are definitely stealing the limelight. Not only do they look great, but they just so happen to be quite practical too! Definitely a must!
