23 May New trends entering the bridal market- Part One: Floral
The bridal trend of 2018 was undoubtedly the stripped back, elegant and yet plain crepe dresses inspired by the gowns the Duchess of Sussex wore on her wedding day to Harry, the Duke of Sussex.
However, a year on we are noticing quite a lot of new trends creeping to many designer collections that will hit stores this Summer.
After our recent trip to London Bridal Fashion Week and the constant research we do to understand the wonderful world of bridal, we have selected some of the trends we are noticing to potentially include in your bridal style for 2020 or beyond! This time, we take a look at the florals are being displayed in bridal wear.
Ok, being honest this one isn’t entirely new but it is evolving to make the floral elements already seen on bridal gowns much bolder. We have noticed a lot of 3D flowers, and this isn’t just on the gowns but on veils and hairpieces too! 3D flowers that give your gown a boho vibe but also help flatter areas of your body you perhaps want to conceal. Pretty as a picture they definitely add a sense of femininity and a detail like this would be easy to carry through to other areas of your wedding such as the stationery or wedding flowers. The images shown here is Cali, by Phil Collins who will be arriving at Victoria Elaine Bridal this Summer!
As well as 3D flowers, we have also noticed coloured flowers being embroidered in to gowns. PC9302 (available from Phil Collins Bridal stockists this Summer) is a really good example of how subtle colour carefully placed over your gown can add delicate detailing without being too over powering. However if you love the floral element, but not sure on the colour, then most designers will have an ivory option! The close up photo of the embroidery is a top secret photo taken at the launch of Ellis Bridals new collection from one of the gowns we have ordered! This is the perfect example of how embroidery can embellish a gown, while adding a glitz of sparkle and metallic colour (another trend, see below!)
As well as florals being seen on the gowns, they are also apparent in the accessories to match! Here are just some examples; 3D flowers embellish a veil that we are soon to have in store, the Quinn shoes encompass both embroidered and 3D flowers to cover all angles and are available in the boutique now and finally, one of Hayley Paige’s caviar veils with the floral design. This is made to match gowns such as the gorgeous Lyla, but will also work with something much plainer to add a little something to your bridal style!
