Many 2014 weddings will be transformed in true Gatsby style into decadent Deco affairs! Cue a big comeback for wedding forehead bands and feather flourishes. Expect to see fab Art Deco style accessories to complete the ‘Daisy’ look!
As more designers create fabulously embellished back panels on dresses, expect brides to look as good from behind as from the front. We are seeing increasing demand for back jewellery and striking wedding hair accessories that beautifully frame vintage style chignons.

We take a look at current wedding trends, and a look back over the last few years at popular bridal trends.
BACK TO FRONT
50 SHADES OF NON IVORY
Soft tonal pastel shades of taupe, gold and palest pink continue to gather favour on the international bridal catwalks. Gilt or gold accessories will complement the warmth in these shades beautifully.
No doubt influenced in some small part by Downton Abbey, designers have introduced many Edwardian inspired touches in their wedding gown styling. Team with simple ribbon headbands and add more intricate flourishes through your choice of wedding jewellery and accessories (don’t forget the all important brooches and cocktail bags for this look).
TIME FOR TEA
Tealength (or ballerina length) dresses heark back to a glamorous 1950s matinee look. These elegant gowns were everywhere on the 2014 catwalks and are just made for pearls – team with pearl earrings, pearl necklaces, pearl hair accessories and pearl bracelets for sophisticated vintage elegance.
Forget demure 30s dresses – welcome clingy, sensual satin bias cut gowns to showcase the female form as brides shimmy down the aisle. Choose sultry, sassy, minimalist bridal accessories to complement the clean lines of this look.
