Brighten Up your Big day

Some of the biggest style trends for the upcoming seasons are two main trends. Brides are loving a departure from traditional white, stepping out of the box with neutrals, blush, and pops of color. Also, the more details the better. Anything from lace to embroidery to intricate beadworked gowns. There is a similar shift with accessories—it’s all about layering in color and texture. Go for mixed-metal accessories or incorporate fresh blooms in unexpected ways.

Bride’s shouldn’t feel the venue have to dictate the gown. Wear the dress of your dreams and use accessories to make it appropriate to the setting. A full tulle skirt may not be traditional for a beach wedding, but finishing touches like flat strappy sandals instead of high-heeled pumps will tie everything together.

The new style trends for the bridesmaids matchy-matchyis no more, instead mix-and-match is the moment. You can even take it a step further than having your attendants in varying colours, or have the same colour but different styles. Tie in a print, swap a dress for separates. Creating variation in your bridal party adds visual interest and feels natural and effortless, not to mention it gives your bridesmaids the freedom to pick dresses that flatter their figures and suit their personal styles.

Pre-wedding events, like the kitchen tea or bachelorette party are great opportunities to work in all of the facets of your personal style. Choose a super-sweet sheath for your kitchen tea,a sparkly number or sleek jumpsuit for your bachelorette, to allow different sides of your personality to shine through.

First, styling secrets for every future bride, it’s important to keep an open mind during your bridal appointments. Be conscious of trends, but the main objective should be to feel beautiful on your big day! Stay true to your figure, choosing silhouettes that flatter and dismissing trends that don’t.

Second, think outside the box. You can create a look that’s completely your own with separates. Consider pairing a full skirt over a slim gown, or even a cocktail dress for your ceremony. Slip it off to reveal a new look for your reception and dance the night away.

Third, consult with a tailor. More likely than not you’ll need one to make a few adjustments to your dress in order to get the perfect fit, but a good tailor can also often add supportive elements, like lined cups to gowns with tricky necklines, so you won’t have to go out of your way to find the right lingerie.

Fourth, pack an emergency kit! The mini emergency kit has everything a bride needs. And don’t forget a lint roller for the groom.

Lastly, remember to enjoy the process and don’t get caught up in other people’s expectations! Your big day should be a reflection of you and your partner and a chance for your nearest and dearest to celebrate your love.
