As much as we have loved planning and styling vintage inspired weddings we are anticipating to see a new take on the "VINTAGE WEDDING". A more detailed and carefully curated style with less clutter has emerged. Say good-bye to rustic vintage and hello to old world glamour meets new world sophistication!
Formality is where it's at for design and atmosphere, in 2012 while continuing to incorporate family heirlooms and traditions but you will see less mason jars, tins, vintage suitcases, mis-matched chairs and typewriters.
Regal style is the new flavour infused with rich textures, lots of white (and even some metallics) set in grand traditional settings. Bright, bold colours such as Pantone's SOLAR POWER YELLOW and MARGARITA GREEN are particular favourites of ours along with teals, greys and blush tones which are being seen in the latest craze of colour blocking and ombre techniques.
The hottest trends on designer catwalks are lace, colour, illusion necklines, double tiered skirts and extreme texture with glimmers of embroidered florals and sleeves.
For those of you with a sweet tooth lolly bars are out and dessert tables are in. We've seen gorgeous little structured desserts presented in glasses which would make even the most savoury of tastebuds water, icing sugar dusted doughnuts filled with jam, simply stylishly handmade cookies and the ruffled cake is making quite a sensation.
Bring on 2012 we can't wait to see the Regal style explode onto the wedding scene!
