12 Wedding Trends You’ll Either Love Or Hate! (Part 1)
The days of the textbook ‘white wedding’ are surely over as modern brides are trying more and more weird and wonderful ideas to make their wedding stand out! While seeing your aunty bouncing around on a bouncy castle at the reception, or doing a themed fancy-dress wedding may be a bridge too far, there are a lot of less crazy trends and ideas that brides are embracing these days. Perhaps some might suit you? Let’s run through the first 6 of our 12 picks here in part 1:
1. Strapless Wedding Dresses
Whilst strapless wedding dresses
aren’t a new sight by any means, wedding purists actually consider them to be a trend, stating that real
wedding dresses should have straps! We think that there’s nothing better than showing off your pretty neckline with a strapless dress! Would you go strapless?
2. Birdcage Veils
Birdcage veils have seemingly come out of nowhere to become a very hot trend this year. They’re a great way to add a touch or glamour and romance to your wedding outfit, but are also really great if you’re following a vintage vibe. Bear in mind that birdcage veils
usually work best with mermaid and lace wedding dresses. Do you like birdcage wedding veils?
3. Ruched Wedding Dresses
If you are going for a real ‘fairy-tale’ look for your wedding dress, then ruched wedding dresses should definitely be a style that you check out. Most of these dresses have heavy ruching, like folds of material, on their skirts which just seem to be melting into each other and have incredible volume reminiscent of ‘beauty and the beast’ or ‘cinderella.’ So ruched wedding dresses
can really make those princess fantasies come true
Are ruched wedding dresses your style?
4. Bling Bridal Bouquet
Many brides are choosing to ‘bling’ up their bridal bouquets by adding a few sparkly gemstones or crystals. Imagine if you’re having an outdoor wedding and the sun is glinting of your bouquet as you make your way down the aisle. How romantic! What do you think?
5. Colorful Wedding Shoes
Weddings are undergoing a kind of post-modern movement these days where a lot of brides and grooms are doing many things to move away from what’s previously been considered to be ‘the norm.’ This means that unique, small touches, such as the individuality and pop of color of some colorful wedding shoes
under the bride’s wedding dress, are becoming popular. Would you choose some spangly shoes and make a statement at your wedding?
6. Mashed Potato In Martini Glasses
Here’s a funny trend that will make you smile! Have you ever been to a wedding where mashed potato is served in martini glasses? I’m not really sure where this trend came from, or even why people started doing this, but it is kind of cute and funny! Would you have this mash on your special day?
So how do you feel about these fun trends for your wedding? If none of these do it for you then look out for part 2 where we’ll look at the next 5 wedding trends that you might like, or might even be having for your wedding!
