2019 Wedding Trends you’ll want to try now!

With unique wedding themes, colours and gowns the 2019 wedding season is going to be an exciting one! We collected some of our favourite current trends for you that you’re sure to want to add to your wedding plans. 

 

  1. The first trend we’ve noticed coming out for 2019  is celestial decor themes. It adds a feel of magic to any wedding with its glittery star and moon decorations and deep blues and golds. This trend is sure to stick around and can help make any wedding even more romantic.

2. Next on our list are the beautiful and boho belle sleeve wedding gowns. Giving a throwback to the 70’s this 2019 trend has become popular again this year and will definitely be sticking around for 2019. We love the flowy romantic look it gives and you can find it in different styles that would suit any bride. 

3. Geometric backdrops are the perfect mix between modern and rustic. Natural materials add a feel of warmth and cozy to any wedding and these geometic backdrops filled with flowers are simply stunning. 

 

4. We’ve seen a lot of these this season already and we’re only at the end of May! Bridal kimonos/robes are a fast-spreading trend that we’re sure to see a lot of in 2019, especially for those getting married early Spring or Fall. These kimono add a classy yet bohemian touch similar to the belle sleeve trend and the combination of both trends makes for a very romantic look.

 

5. Neon signs are one of our top 3 trends for the season, they look fantastic and they add an unexpected design element to your wedding that you can keep for years to come! Check out these examples we found that add some flare to your special day!

3 Charming Boho Bridal Accessories

Boho chic as a fashion trend has found itself coming and going for the past 25 years or so. Drawing on both bohemian and hippie influences, it’s a varied style that places emphasis on loose, flowing skirts, natural materials, and various other elements. If you’re a fan of the boho look and are looking to incorporate it into your bridal outfit, here are a few accessory ideas to help you get started.

Hair Chains

Hair chains are not only very beautiful and regal looking hair pieces, they’re also super comfortable and easy to wear. That’s one of the advantages of boho chic – you look so stylish without all the hassle of feeling uncomfortable! You also have a lot of options here with a hair chain. Keep it simple and minimalistic with the chains and colours if your bridal affair is of a subdued nature. If you’re looking for more sparkle, feel free to pick a hair piece with more beads and jewels.

Raw Crystal Jewelry

Raw crystal jewelry, despite lacking the polish of cut stones, have their own special charm. They refract light in more mysterious ways, their colours are more varied and interesting, and their shapes are not as predictable. Pick a stone that matches your colour scheme, your theme (all stones have meanings!), or, if you can’t decide, layer them! Layers are always good.

White Statement Sandals

Boho chic is all about casual stylishness, so what could be more casual and stylish than a pair of snazzy sandals? Pick a white pair to up the fanciness (wouldn’t want to be too casual) and don’t be afraid of embellishment. Feathers, stones, and metal coins are just some of the many decorations you could go for. Comfort and style – what could be better?

100 Years of Wedding Dresses

The wedding gown, it’s a big deal. It’s always been kind of a big deal. And since it’s such a big deal, there’s been all kinds of fascinating fashion progress throughout the centuries.

If you go back further than the last 100 years, you’ve got dresses like Marie Antoinette’s 18th century full-coverage gown with panniers (read wide-damn-dress thingys).

And then there’s the dresses of today, like Vera Wang’s 2016 modern and evocative peek-a-boo gowns. The wedding gown has always been a representation of the bride. (Well, once upon a time it was about casting her family in the most favourable light, but it was still sort of about the bride.)

verawang

Over the last 100 years, wedding dress styles have been traditionally based on the popular styles of the day. If you were a bride in the 1920s, your wedding dress was probably short in the front with a longer train, and you likely wore a cloche-style veil.  These fashion-trends-of-the-day continued right up until around the 1940s when it became popular to revert back to the long, full-skirted designs reminiscent of the Victorian era.

Check out this fun Mode video showing 100 years of Wedding dresses. (That 1935 floor-length lace coat at 0:50 though. Wow!)

3 Different Shoes For Your Fairytale Wedding

Although many people don’t realize it, shoes are an important part of a bridal outfit. If your gown is floor length, simpler (but still elegant!) shoes will do. However, shorter dresses often need one showstopper of a shoe to help pull the whole look together. If you’re planning a fairytale wedding and need some ideas for footwear, here are some looks to get you started.

Bejewelled

Shoes with a little bit of dazzle are always a great way to add some flair to any ensemble. Whether they’re pumps, flats, or strappy sandals, a little gem-work goes a long way. Remember, those little flashes of light are sure to catch the eye, so make sure you’re comfortable with people staring at your feet!

If you’re not into the sparkly look that gems provide, there are other (just as beautiful!) options on the table. Lace detailing, whether it’s actual lace or leather that’s been worked and cut to resemble a lace-like pattern, is a great way to include exquisite detail without all the flash. The shoes in the photo, in case you were wondering, are a particularly beautiful design, “Impera”, by Christian Louboutin.

Bows

For something that’s a little sweeter, although no less feminine, bows are a great addition to any bridal getup. They’re elegant, simple, and classic, with just a touch of childhood whimsy to them. This look is for the bride who wants a little extra something without the added flair being too overpowering.

3 DIY Crochet Bridal Accessories

For the avid crochet addict, nothing incites excitement quite like the prospect of a new project. For the crocheting bride, especially, bridal accessories can present countless opportunities to create something special and one of a kind. Even as a guest, crocheted items make priceless and personal gifts. Handmade items show care and love, and are a great way to make a special day even more special. Here are some ideas to get you started.

Lace Bridal Shrug

A small white shrug with a beautiful pattern is always in style as a bridal accessory. Not only can it make a lovely heirloom to be passed on, it can also make a great everyday accessory if you feel inclined to wear it on a daily basis. You can use finer yarn to make a gossamer-light, fine-as-silk shrug or a thicker yarn for a warmer, more rustic look. Remember, certain patterns call for certain weights of yarn, so plan accordingly!

Lace Garter

A garter belt is a not-so-necessary accessory to a bridal outfit. However, it does add a bit of a classic flair. So, why not crochet your very own garter? Find a pattern that suits your tastes and comfort zone, whether it calls for complicated and meandering stitchery or simple, basic stitches. You can even come up with your own pattern, if you’re so inclined.

Lace Veil

Veils are a great callback to vintage wedding dresses. Why not capitalize on that old-school vibe and throw some crochet details into the mix? This usually works better for shorter veils, but can be just as stunning on a long, flowing headpiece. Remember, lightweight yarn tends to be better for detail work while heavier yarns tend to be better for larger pieces.

3 High Fashion Accents: Animal Textures Inspired by Alexander McQueen

High fashion, or haute couture, is often characterized by its high quality materials, attention to detail, and trendsetting nature. Many designers often use unusual cuts or accents on the clothing in their collections, but names like Alexander McQueen’s have brought high fashion to the level of art: clothing not necessarily for functionality, but for its own aesthetic sake. With your wedding outfit, you can take some inspiration from high fashion to add some drama to your look. Here are a few ideas to get you started.

Butterflies

Alexander McQueen’s “The Widows of Culloden” 2006

Alexander McQueen’s “The Widows of Culloden” 2006

Alexander McQueen’s use of butterflies as a motif is frequent and usually one of the first things people think of when his work comes to mind. To incorporate this theme into your look in a subtle way, add one or two butterflies in places like your hairpiece or shoulder. Feel free to pick any kind of butterfly that suits your look, too. Nature’s provided you with a dazzling array of colours and patterns, after all!

Feathers

Another important Alexander McQueen motif is feathers and bird wings. For your particular outfit, subtle use of feathers can add quite a bit of interest. Again, there are many colours and patterns to choose from depending on the look you want to go for. Keep things all white for a more otherworldly, angelic look or add some dark colours for more drama. The options are almost endless.

Scales

Last but not least, scales. Whether they’re meant to imitate fish scales, snake scales, or even scales of armour, these are a recurring and gorgeous design in McQueen’s work. If you’re keen on this look, you can keep the scale accents subtle (perhaps as body glue-ons, sewn on your bodice, or wherever you feel appropriate) or you can make them a main and standout feature of your outfit.

How to Use Hair Combs for 3 Different Bridal Looks

The hair comb has had a long and illustrious history. From some of the earliest days, we’ve used them to both groom and adorn our hair. It’s now a popular hair accessory for brides on their big days, ranging from the simple and elegant to the complex and dramatic. For those of you looking for a little inspiration, here are a few looks to help you get started.

Light and Sparkle

This is the more recent and modern take on the hair comb. Rhinestone and other light-catching materials give an impression of the airy, the light, and the borderline celestial. Try to keep your stones neutral in colour and use to one or two colours at a time to avoid kitsch. Clear, champagne, or smoky grey will do very nicely.

Romantic and Old World

From the elegant and intricate Spanish mantilla style combs to the romantic and dreamy designs of Art Nouveau period, antique combs are always a welcome addition to any bridal look that relies on old world charm. Although many antique combs are difficult to obtain for the average person, there are plenty of artisans that sell antique-inspired combs or replicas for more affordable prices.

Abstract and Graphic

Our modern world is characterized by simplified and streamlined shapes with an almost graphic quality to them. Keeping in the same spirit, you can choose hair combs that echo that look. The important things to keep in mind are shape (stay with the geometric) and pattern (repeating patterns speak of the industrial).

Unexpected Flairs of Colour! 3 Dramatic Bridal Looks

Colour schemes are a common way for couples to plan a unique wedding. These will often bleed from venue décor to the wardrobes themselves, usually in the form of jewelry and small clothing accents. If you’re fond of a little drama you can make use of colour to highlight your look in the most unexpected of ways. Here are a few ideas to get you started.

Coloured Soles

When most people think of coloured soles, they think of the signature Christian Louboutin red sole. It’s dramatic, striking, and elegant. Luckily, you can pull off that same look without the crazy price tag. Many stores offer similar looks for less and also different colours for those of you who aren’t that into red. Try out purple, blue, or even lemon yellow!

Coloured Waistcoats

Don’t let the groom miss out on all the fun! Although men tend to shy away from bright or too much colour, colour accents can create a really cool look. A coloured waistcoat is the perfect way to liven up his outfit without freaking him out. It’s also great for all the men out there who don’t mind a little extra colour in their clothing, and can be paired with other accents like a cravat or lapel flower.

Coloured Underskirt

For the traditional bride, a wedding dress usually means a white gown. For those of you who are a little more progressive with your style, a coloured underskirt or petticoat offers that perfect balance of the traditional white dress with that dramatic little flash of colour to make your look stand out. Keep it bright, and don’t go neon unless you’re planning on a rave later!

Sarah Jessica Parker Launches Wedding Shoe Collection

Photo courtesy of SJP Collection/Instagram

Sarah Jessica Parker has added a bridal collection to her footwear line. The collection consists of satin pumps and, in true SJP fashion, ivory isn’t the only colour option.

Reminiscent of the blue Manolo Blahnik’s that Carrie Bradshaw wore when she married Mr. Big in Sex and the City, SJP’s collection is adorned in gorgeous details, such as a blue ribbon in the back and bejewelled brooches at the toes. The collection is also a celebration of the colourful bride, with pumps available in blue, plum and pale green.

The actress turned designer donned a black gown at her own wedding in 1997 to Matthew Broderick, and has since designated it as her “biggest fashion regret.” She recently told Martha Stewart Weddings that she would now much prefer something more traditional.

“If I were getting married today, I’d likely wear cream, just to have that bridal experience,” said. “Now I would want my dress to have an Oscar de la Renta feel, pockets below the waist, a very fitted bodice, a huge skirt, in taffeta or duchesse satin. That silhouette appeals to me because it’s old-fashioned yet can look very modern.”

SJP’s bridal collection is now available at Bloomingdales.com, Nordstrom.com, and ZapposCouture.com. Check out the collection below.

3 Stylish Tuxedos for Grooms

When it comes to wedding fashion, the focus is usually on the bride. Between her dress, shoes and accessories, there is often little time or energy left to think about the groom’s attire. If you are having a formal wedding, a tuxedo is a great option! While it might seem like all tuxedos look the same, there are many different styles and accessories that will allow any groom to make the look his own. Check out these three stylish tuxedos below!

Classic With a Twist

Give a classic, traditional tuxedo a little personality. From Studio on 7, this tuxedo is paired with a polkadot bow tie and matching pocket square. This is a great way to have a bit of fun with formal attire — simply choose colours and patterns that match your personality, or even the colour scheme of your wedding.

3-Piece Tuxedo

A three-piece tuxedo comes with a vest to be worn underneath the suit jacket. This can give the groom a much more formal look, but also give you a few extra options for the big day. For example, at the reception you can remove the jacket and leave the vest on and still look put-together. Don’t forget, a bow tie isn’t necessary when it comes to tuxedos — the one pictured above from Tuxedo Royale is paired with a traditional tie and a simple, white pocket square.

Take your tuxedo up a stylish notch by giving it some colour. The tuxedo pictured above is from Joe by Joseph Abbound, available at Andrews Formals. The single-breasted tuxedo is in a blue denim colour with a black trim and black collar. The striking combination is sure to give the bride a run for her money.

4 Unique Bridal Crowns

Crowns have traditionally been seen as symbols of monarchy. In modernity, you’re more likely to see a crown on a bride than a monarch. These headpieces have become extremely fashionable, due in part to the common desire for a fairy tale wedding. So, if you’d like to feel like a princess on your wedding day, here are several different kinds of crowns you might like to consider.

Headband Tiaras

Photo courtesy of WirePrincess/Etsy

Photo courtesy of WirePrincess/Etsy

Also known as a “bandeau”, these crowns sit on your head like a headband and are not fully circular in shape. You can find many that are lightly made, wire and jewels only, or you can find some that are a bit more substantial and sturdy, using heavier metals and gems.

Stylized Tiaras

Photo courtesy of WirePrincess/Etsy

Photo courtesy of WirePrincess/Etsy

These tiaras are very stylized and almost abstract and graphic in their aesthetic. They have tall points and are usually quite small, meaning they can be worn either centred or to the side of your head. If there is no headband to keep the tiara in place, many lighter ones can be fastened with bobby pins.

Comb Coronets

Photo courtesy of WirePrincess/Etsy

Photo courtesy of WirePrincess/Etsy

These bridal crowns are worn in a similar manner to any decorative comb. They are small and dainty, perfect for the bride who wants a touch of magic but nothing too flashy. These are especially great for when you want your hair to be the centre of attention.

Brow Bands or Circlets

Photo courtesy of WirePrincess/Etsy

Circlets differ from the usual crown in that they sit lower on your head, mainly on your brow. These are usually light and easy to wear, and they’re perfect for those brides interested in that princess look but who aren’t into the whole “formal” vibe of a full crown.

Sophia Webster Launches Bridal Footwear Collection

Sophia Webster is putting a spotlight on bridal footwear fashion by launching her own collection of heels fit for your walk down the aisle. Footwear seems to get overlooked when it comes to bridal fashion, with most gowns covering most, if not all, of the shoe anyway. But, as Webster seems to be pointing out, that’s no reason to not have a bit of fun with your wedding shoes.

Sticking with traditional bridal colours, like ivory and pastels, Webster’s latest collection is anything but traditional. These shoes have wings, beaded heels and pompoms. Webster even has her trademark slogan printed on the bottom of each pair: “Wifey for Lifey.”

Photo courtesy of Sophia Webster

The collection also includes two bubble clutches with their own slogans. One says “Happy Ever After” and the other reads “The Boy is Mine.”

Photo courtesy of Sophia Webster

“When I first decided to do bridal shoes I was not yet married so thinking about what I would wear for my wedding was a great starting point!” Webster said the of collection. “As the collection was being brought to life I imagined all sorts of women slipping into the shoes and feeling like queens for that special day. With that in mind I wanted to use really feminine touches like satin uppers, crystal heels and gem stones, all in delicate tones that would work with classic dresses but add a little flourish.”

Prices for Sophia Webster’s bridal collection starts at $450. You can see her entire collection here.

Bridal Capes at the Oscars

This year’s Academy Awards were definitely entertaining—thanks, in large part, to host Ellen DeGeneres—but what really stood out was the fashion on the red carpet. Usually we pick a range of looks that could be adapted as bridalwear, but for the Oscars, we couldn’t help but notice a serious trend: Caped gowns! Here are our favourite caped gowns as bridal looks.

476230123-10

Kate Hudson in Atelier Versace. Kate knocked this look out of the park. This is a home run on the Oscars red carpet if we have ever seen one! Imagine seeing her walk down the aisle in this number? Everyone would be utterly speechless. Try a look like this if you are a bride who wants to seriously stand out, you’re a fan of bling, and you can/want to pull off the caped trend.

rexusa-1926333c

Kelly Osbourne in Badgley Mischka. The Fashion Police star looks like an adorable bride in this outfit. The cape on this dress follows a couple bridal trends this season: gold accents, and illusion necklines. The sheer and sparkly element to this cape keeps it looking young and fun. To complete her look, Kelly carried a gold box clutch by Judith Leiber, wore LoveGold jewelry and shoes by Aldo.

476231171-10

Camilla Alves in custom Gabriela Cadena. She paired her dress with shoes by Charlotte Olympia.The long-sleeve blush pink silk gown was perfectly on trend for 2014 bridalwear. The pink hue mixed with the draped cape screams “Hollywood Bride”! Try this look if you have loved pink celebrity wedding dresses like Kaley Cuco, Jessica Biel, and Gwen Stefani’s.
