Fashion trends for weddings come and go, and having recently exhibited at North Wales’ largest Wedding Fayre at Venue Cymru our wedding co-ordinators thought they’d pass on the latest trends they saw.

The glitzy wedding dress has been replaced with lace and crochet, while there were also many dresses that were strikingly simple in design to give that perfect architectural silhouette.   The off-the-shoulder or Jackie Kennedy neckline is very much in fashion as well as the deep plunge neckline especially at the rear which is completed with a dramatic large bow. Ivory, Champagne and Cream are this season’s wedding gown colours.  Veils are back but they have to be long and worn with a floral, not diamante, tiara and hair jewellery. 

Bridesmaid dresses are still elegant and sophisticated but this year the halter-neck style is the key, and there is no set colour trend as the darker colours like navy, green and purple and the range of pastels were very evident.  Satin dresses with matching bolero jackets in ivory or pastel colours are very much in for the Mother of the Bride, and fancy fascinators rather than hats are still very much on trend. 

While the glitz has disappeared from the dresses it’s very much in evidence on the invites but be mindful about including loose “bling” in your invite envelopes as that’s not a trend many recipients appreciate!  Vintage is also a popular theme with rustic signage on chalk boards and the three or four tier cake is very much back in fashion although “naked cakes” ie not iced were also very evident at the Fayre.

Decorating the room where the wedding breakfast is to be held is often an area many brides-to-be struggle, so think Vintage again with the classic Rose and Peony floral table arrangements.  Forget the fairy light backdrop as they are “out” and have been replaced with stunning flower walls, and if the room allows hanging glass balls with tea lights are not only attractive but also very effective and again very much in fashion.
