Brides Essence - - Contents -

Trends come and go. The art is to be cre­ative and make it your own. Here are some ideas of what’s in at the mo­ment and what’s to come.

Vin­tage will still be big next year, but not the cur­rent ‘rus­tic vin­tage’ as much as ‘lux­ury vin­tage’. Lean to­wards the Art Deco (1950) era and in­clude more glitz, glam­our, ‘spark­lies’ and bling. Lace is still the clas­sic and most pop­u­lar el­e­ment.

Laz­er­cut de­signs are in high de­mand; they cre­ate a lace look. Com­bine with pearls, dia­mante, hints of sil­ver, bronze

by Bron­wyn Hen­drikz or cop­per foil, pearles­cent card and paper, with satin sheen rib­bon.

Let­ter­press print­ing is ex­tremely pop­u­lar due to the beau­ti­ful tex­tured fin­ish cre­ated by the old-fash­ioned print­ing method. Paper choices range from thick boards (450gm) to 90gm cot­ton rich pa­pers in a va­ri­ety of colours and shades how­ever cream or white re­main the ,most prac­ti­cal.

Flo­rals - big blooms, softer coun­try styles and Shabby Chic – with colours like blues, laven­ders and rose, or deeper
