Wedding fashion – Godwick wedding blogger’s tips for 2014
This month Godwick’s resident wedding trend spotter looks into the wonderful world of wedding fashion…
I think I am not alone saying that as a girl I started thinking about my wedding dress before I could walk. For many ladies, who grew up with Disney princesses and fairy tales for bedtime stories the chance to wear a princess dress for a day is a dream come true. In modern times we even have real life princess weddings to admire – Zara Phillips and Princess Kate have been hugely influential in the wedding dresses of the past few years. So, what will we be seeing on the wedding catwalks… I mean aisles… of 2014?
LACE, LACE, LACE
Kate Middleton’s iconic Alexander McQueen dress with it’s beautifully embroidered sleeves and delicate lace was truly stunning. Many of the 2014 designs for dresses incorporate lace and we especially love the collection from Pronovias as pictured.
Lace accessories have also become popular, with lace gloves, and hand-made lace veils becoming increasingly sought after.
It’s true that classic never goes out of style. And for ladies that want more of a ‘one-off’ feel vintage wedding dresses are still hugely popular. Friend of Godwick, Katie Coe, runs Vintage Deli, a local shop specializing in beautiful one-off vintage pieces. They have a huge selection of wedding dresses, and we love to spend an hour every once in a while with a cup of tea and a biscuit drooling over the new stock on their website Vintage Deli.
Pink has been a really hot colour on the catwalks this year and that has translated over to wedding style. My favourite is this amazing Vera Wang number. What could be more Disney princess!
RUFFLE SOME FEATHERS
Feathered dresses are also becoming hugely popular. They are the perfect combination of dreamy and fun. If you don’t want to go for the full on ‘ostrich’ you could accessorize with some beautiful feathered hair ornaments. I love this one from Not on the High Street.
So, I hope you enjoyed this month’s update on wedding fashion. Next month I shall be keeping my beady eyes out for wedding music trends – bands, first dances, disco… get your dancing shoes on ready!
