Watercolour Inspiration – Hot or Not?

27 Apr

Watercolours seem to be an emerging wedding trend. Watercoloured inspired wedding dresses are hitting runways around the word. Watercolour invitations, decorations and wedding attire are becoming a popular choice. Watercolours have the appearance of being DIY, but if you ask me, that are simply sophisticated! Love them or hate them, here is some inspiration to brighten up this rainy Friday afternoon!

Exquisite Emerald

19 Mar

Emerald is one of the hottest colour trends at the moment. Emerald is a strong colour, so you only need to use it sparingly. Think statement pieces –  shoes, jewellery or bridesmaids dresses. Emerald can be paired with creams, ivory, gold and greys. Here is a little bit of Monday Inspiration for you.

Wedding Trend – Candles

5 Mar

I adore candles. Candles can create a magical ambiance that can be achieved by using simple votives or something more complex like hanging glass lanterns. Candles in any form are a hot wedding trend right now. So today  I thought I would compile some candle inspiration for you.

A simple and elegant table centerpiece featuring clear glass votives that really highlight the flowers.

This rose petal aisle way looks amazing with large hurricane vases filled with water and floating candles.

These jars featuring pillar candles are a great DIY table centerpiece idea. You can get creative with the styles and types of jars used.

These white wedding lanterns are a gorgeous addition to your wedding ceremony, particularly if you are having an evening wedding.

Ombre Love

Ombre seems to be one of the hottest wedding trends for 2012. Ombre is French for ‘shaded’. It usually incorporates multicoloured stripes with colours that graduate from light to dark. I am completely in love this trend, so thought I would pull together some Ombre inspiration for you all.

2. This green ombre Kanzashi Flower Brooch/Corsage is adorable, handmade by Cuttlefishlove

3. This Maggie Austin cake is to die for! Check out the attention to detail.

4.This beautiful Jason Grech White Gown is amazing.

2012 Wedding Gown Trend – The Illusion Neckline

29 Jan

If you are after a gown that screams romantic elegance and class, then a gown with an illusion neckline, may just be for you. The illusion style neckline is best thought of as a “strapless gown, with coverage”. Often featuring a sheer, delicate layer of fabric that can include lace and embellishments, the illusion neckline covers the area of your decolletage and back, that would normally be exposed when wearing a strapless gown. The style has been spotted all over the runway, and has been a hit with designers like Vera Wang, Collette Dinnigan and Henry Roth! Below are some of my favourite Illusion Neckline gowns, to inspire the mind!

1. At number one, Collette Dinnigan takes the cake, with her ‘Lattice Pearls’ creation from her True Romance Collection. The neckline is to die for and is so unique. Love love love!

2. In second place, the always amazing Henry Roth, with the gown ‘Kara’. The a-line gown is rocking a 50’s inspired, raised sheer lace boat neckline. Stunning!

3. In third place, Marchesa have ticked a few of the 2012 wedding dress trend boxes with this gorgeous knee length embroidered tulle gown. I just love the flirty feather skirt!

4. Maggie Sottero, gives the illusion neckline the one shoulder treatment with her gown ‘Bernadine’. The attention to detail on the bodice is complete with Swarovski Crystal embellished lace. Exquisite!

5. Coming in fifth place is the amazing ‘Henriette’ by Vera Wang. The high neck, cap-sleeve gown with floating lace appliques, creates the perfect illusion neckline!

..and just for the extra bit of eye candy, in case you missed it, Holly Branson recently got hitched in a Jane Hill gown, that takes another twist on the illusion neckline. Loving this dress!
