Catching up on trends!

There have been a lot of trends that have already become big in 2016, they have been seasonal and non seasonal trends that can be used an time. The trends have been varying from modern to rustic and everywhere in between!

Most of the modern trends have to do with the time and the trends that are happening in other aspects of the world, like fashion and style; they are big influencers in the wedding industry.

Floral walls are very in, they can be either hanging from the walls or from the ceiling, both are very in right now at this moment especially because of the summer and the beautiful florals that are available right now!

A hair trend would have to be the high classic ballerina bun, the vail can be perfect for this look and it is sleek and elegant! They can also be loose buns, even a low bun! Buns are so in right now! During the summer months it is a good look because the warmer weather helps with the hair and keeping it out of your face on a special day!

A nice treat for your wedding or event that is one trend right now would have to be donuts! they are all the rage right now! there are donuts everywhere!! Fancy colourful donuts are the best colourful treat for your guests!

Copper of course is in trend, who doesn't love a good metallic additive to any event! they are just so modern and chic but can be dressed down to be rustic or vintage! There are metallic press ons that are very popular on the invitations or thank you card that you give out! they can go right with the theme of your wedding or event to make people remember your amazing day even more!

Drone photography is really popular these days, they have new ways of achieving the birds eye view! Truly amazing to be able to capture the view of your wedding or event, it is creative and innovative!

There are so many more trends that are yet to come within 2016, this has been a great year so far!!

All about the Necklines!

All about the neckline of a gown, your wedding day is all that you want it to be, you decide how much you want to show or not! there are of course more subtle necklines that are classic and more modest and then there are necklines that like to bare it all!

There are so many ways to express a neckline within and on a dress, there can be variations of certain necklines as well to make it just your own!

There are the typical necklines in things such as sweethearts, straight, off the shoulder, v-neck, halter strap, spaghetti straps; these are more of the traditional looks that can be given in a wedding gown, then there are the jewel neck, the scoop neck, the square, halter, high neck, Sabrina neck, asymmetrical, queen Anne line, illusion, cowl neck and the grecian.

The new looks that are in trend and on look right now would have to be a nice grecian beaded look, an illusion neckline is always beautiful, a high neck two piece neckline, and a nice v-neck!

All these necklines are beautiful and can truly compliment any body type! choose what is best for you and what you would like to see most on your figure to flatter what you have to show off!

Biggest wedding dress tends to come: keep an eye open!!

Trends change all the time, they evolve and adapt to the times! Wedding dress trends also change, not at such a rapid pace but still changing with every season that new brands and designers come up with different ideas. There are always going to be timeless lines and collecting that have key styles, but you can be sure that puffy 80’s sleeves are not going to be coming back anytime soon!

One of the main focuses and statements of bridal 2016 so far has been sheer dresses, lace and all the linen that you can think of! Spanish inspired design houses like Naeem Kahn are very on point with this, the spring 2016 side of trends within the industry! Most of the retailed lines are shown as nude but not nude so that you feel comfortable wearing it around your family, there is something for everyone! The key of finding your perfect nude dress is making sure it shows off all the right assets, and tastefully accentuates your body in the perfect way for your special day!

Colour trends to come do include the light pale pinks and mint greens, but 2016 so far has been a pretty dark year, with the darker colours becoming more of a trend! Deep reds and modern gothic looks and moody have a romantic feeling. Designers like Inbal Dror and Vera Wang have been expressing this in recent collections.

Designer Angel Sanchez has added 3D floral applications to collections, which is personally my favourite and adds such a perfect touch to the dress, they are not overpowering but they have a simple and elegant touch to the dresses, plus flowers are just amazing!

Silhouettes are always fun to play with in the bridal industry! Oscar de la Renta often plays with the classic sweet but modern take on the silhouettes, but the dresses and gowns are amazing every time!

As long as you feel amazing in the dress it doesn't really matter if it follows the trends, you need to make yourself happy first!

Red weddings!!

What better colour to show love then red! This colour can be shown in many different values and at many different intensities, red is a truly versatile and amazing colour for an event! The lovely rose comes in it most nature form as red, it would be the best accent to your red themed wedding if you choose to do so.

Red can be a very powerful colour but if you use it in the right way you can surly achieve great things with it. Subtle hints of red thought your wedding do show specks of love all over and they don't have to be in hearts and outwardly affectionate ways of showing red, they can be with elegant ribbons, or touches of roses in a bunch, red table settings. You can even go as subtle as having red shoes under your wedding dress. Your bouquet can be full of roses and other beautiful red flowers and so much more! Pairing a deep red with such pure whites is an amazing site when it is executed correctly, the simplest touches can make the most difference.

In the florals you can have red bouquets, red centre pieces and even red floral hanging decor! the possibilities are endless and amazing!! The trend of red usually falls in the season of fall and winter but it is great to explore anytime, you do not have to heavily base the reds on anything in particular, make them as much or as little of an accent as you would like and that you would have visioned for your special day!

Weather your favourite colour is red or you just think it is beautiful in this type of setting specifically, you need to make sure that you love it and everything about your wedding!! make it scream you and everything that your love is!!
