Newest wedding trends take the cake
(NC) - Modern brides are determined to make a grand statement with a whole range of personalized wedding details. The planning is a fun, but enormous task, – and if you say you're not engaged yet, you might be soon.
Did you know that one in four Canadian brides get engaged between Thanksgiving and New Year's Eve? So if you're aiming at 2014, your big day is around the corner. For inspiration, David's Bridal Canada, a leading bridal and special occasion authority, has pulled together the top trends for the upcoming year:
New necklines: For years, there has been virtually no change in bridal looks as designers and brides alike selected strapless ball gowns as the style of choice – until now that is. Both illusion and asymmetrical necklines are coming on strong this year.
Back details: Brides are taking inspiration from the red carpet and choosing dresses that feature pretty back designs. Why not? After all, their guests are looking at their backs for most of the ceremony so show personal style with cascading ruffles or deep V-backs that accent a great figure.
Mixed metals: Take your pick of gold or silver, as both work well for 2014. Look for bridal gowns that include subtle mixed metallic appliques woven throughout the dress.
Champagne toast: Champagne conjures up thoughts of special moments, romance and celebrations. For the modern bride who is looking for a hint of colour on her special day, look for traditional silhouettes that are enhanced by layering soft tulle over champagne fabrications to keep them romantic in feel.
Mix and match bridal parties: The parade of identical bridesmaids coming down the aisle is so last year. Brides are carrying that personalization trend to their parties by having their attendants wear complementary dresses that flatter all body types and skin tones. Wear the same colour but choose body-flattering cuts that ensure everyone looks great. Alternatively, choose the same silhouette but allow each one to wear a unique shade such as variations of a pretty pastel palette.
Key accessories: Milky white and clear jewelry is big this year as it blends well with a variety of pastel shades that continue to be popular. For brides who adore vintage, choose closed-toe pumps in low, kitten heels. For those looking for more edge, carry a mixed metal handbag and wear chunky jewels paired with high-heeled pumps or platforms.
