Our 2015 forecast
Travel in TECHNICOLOUR. Travelite combines FASHION.
1. UNPLUGGED WEDDINGS are the antithesis to the current social media frenzy. Guests are asked to switch off their phones, tablets, cameras and other digital equipment during the ceremony so they can be fully present and enjoy the moment. A commissioned photographer takes the pictures. 2. STEP UP in gladiator flats or heels. Forget satin courts and dainty pumps; gladiators look amazing paired with shorter numbers. 3. SHEROES forgo traditional veils and opt for modern, tailored capes. Nothing says regal like the cape, as seen at Solange’s wedding. 4. FOLIAGE takes over from classic floral arrangements and bouquets – think loads of green! 5. AERIAL VIEW becomes the focus of attention, with photographers making use of drones to capture bird’s-eye view images and videos. Big Brother, here we come! 6. APP–TITUDE makes bridesmaids obsolete, as they are no longer required to help with the runarounds. Instead, you can use handy apps such as TaskRabbit (for small runarounds), The Knot Wedding Planner (instead of a human wedding planner) and Tripit (to help plan your honeymoon). 7. BRIDAL JUMPSUITS take centre stage. Move over white suits! 8. THE AFTER-AFTERPARTY DRESS is shorter and sparklier than before. Designed specifically to help you boogie better, this party dress is the in thing. Make sure you get one. 9. AND THE BRIDE WORE NOTHING… The sheerer heerer your dress, the better! Vera Wang has ushered in an era of not-so-shy brides, taking barely there to new heights. 10. BESPOKE SCENTS are back in vouge to capture and evoke emotions on your wedding day, making a lasting impression. Try marrying fragrances, a service offered at Jo Malone stores nationwide.
