One of the best things about January is meeting all the new brides, each beginning the search for her perfect vintage wedding dress.
It’s a great way to keep in touch with what my girls are looking for, and see the new trends coming through. I can already see a lot of excitement around some trends. So today on my vintage wedding blog, here’s my predictions for 2014.
1. Pastel coloured lace wedding dresses
Sorbet and pastel shades are a major feature in all the designer fashion collections this year. And vintage wedding fashion is no exception. Blush shades are proving very popular already, especially 1950s tea length styles.
For more on pastel lace vintage wedding dresses, see my full blog post, A GUIDE TO VINTAGE LACE WEDDING DRESSES here.
2. Leafy, natural flower-themed weddings
This year, many of my girls are aiming for a more natural, verdant feel for their wedding – and for their vintage wedding fashion. Not just in the flowers they carry, but also in their headpieces.
This can be a full-on romantic and relaxed boho style, with voluptuous blooms like the full flower-crown worn by real vintage bride Olivia above (you can see more of Olivia here).
Or it may be a more minimal and dainty circlet. These vintage ‘hair vines’ are usually Edwardian-influenced, perhaps inspired by the delicate glamour of Downton Abbey.
This is such a beautiful trend – soft and flattering, and the perfect complement to vintage wedding dresses. I’m planning a full post on floral crowns and circlets very soon.
3. 1930s wedding dresses – for art deco glamour
1930s original and vintage-inspired dresses continue to be very highly sought-after. These dresses offer such wonderful glamour and style – they are truly timeless.
You can see more of the 1930s-style dresses featured above, here in my Heavenly Collection or on my website. And of course, if you would like to arrange a visit to my studio, you can always contact me here.
I’ll be writing full posts on each of these trends very soon – do check back.
And thanks for stopping by today!
