Looking forward . . .

to the biggest trends coming in Spring Summer 2018.

Full of inspiration from images of last weeks’ Premiere Vision (the fashion industry’s global trend forecasting event) I am glancing into my crystal ball and putting together some of the most inspirational material from around the web for you to enjoy on your wedding planning journey.

Natural Beauty

Crystals, minerals and raw metallics are likely to feature strongly in 2018 weddings; with the current trends for shimmering gowns (sequins and sparkles galore) and gold leaf on cakes and stationary going from strength to strength into the next year.

All things Bold and Beautiful

Rich natural earthy tones, highlighted with metallics and iridescence will be a key component for spring summer 2018. For wedding palettes, I foresee a move away from the neutral greys and nude tones and a return to more bold colour combinations.

Metallics are a key trend – luxurious lace with lurex thread highlights or metallic cloths shimmering gently beneath layers of tulle whilst the most bold brides will sparkle in an all over sequin gowns. cropped-with_love_and_lace_bespoke_couture_bridalwear_jo_withey_designer_kent_wedding_dress_logo3.png
