It’s London Fashion Week so all eyes are fixed on the S/S15 catwalks, however back on the High Street A/W is the main event and there’s some style stories that are perfect for you and your wedding.

 

One of the biggest trends for the autumn season is one that will surprise you! Pretty candy colours have long been seen as spring-only shades, however nothing would brighten up a bleak, breezy fall morning like a dash of colour and soft pastels and romantic nude hues are a key trend this autumn/winter. Nude, blush, baby blue, soft grey shades, lilac, mint green are combined with neutral shades or teamed with black for a stylish statement.

If your big day isn’t until next spring or summer then this is still the perfect time to pick up a pale bridesmaid dress as delicate colourways were seen on the catwalks at New York Fashion Week last week, so the pastel bridesmaid dress trend is set to continue – wouldn’t it be fantastic to get your colour theme set and be ahead with your planning!

Pretty pastels

 

Sugary springtime shades are going to be every girl’s candy crush this spring/summer season, so keep your maids sweet in pretty pastel dresses. Go for delicate lighter than light blue, pink, green or yellow or better still, mismatch your maids in a pale rainbow selection.

Top of the morning to you! With The Cheltenham Gold Cup starting today (a popular date on the calendar with the Irish) and St Patrick’s Day on Monday next week, it seemed only fitting to look to our neighbours across the Irish Sea for this month’s worldwide wedding inspiration.

 

Famous for St Patrick, countless castles and stunning churches, its beautiful wind-swept coastline and craggy cliffs, grey skies and gorgeous green countryside, a rich literary history, Irish dancing, horse racing, shamrocks, good luck, friendly locals, welcoming pubs, and of course Guinness! Whether you’re holding your nuptials in Ireland or simply want to inject the essence of The Emerald Isle into your big day style, the rich culture can create a beyond-beautiful theme.

 

Represent the spirit of Ireland with rich wintery shades of green or light heather hues, teamed with fabulous flower crowns, rustic bouquets and centerpieces, natural ethereal elements and Celtic cross details.
