WELL GUYS THE END OF 2016 IS NEAR!!!! Who doesn’t love the clean slate of a new year + looking forward to all thats a-comin’?!

We’ve been chatting a lot recently about wedding trends and how the wedding industry can be slow on the uptake with integrating modern styles. But with the birth of high-street wedding dresses and quick access to online fashion + stores, we think there’s a change afoot! You creative lot are much more keen to marry your daily style into your wedding celebrations, so with that in mind, here’s our take, our edit, on the fashion trends in 2017 you’ll see sneaking their way into your 2017-18 plans!

• STREET STYLE  L A Y E R S

Inspired by the street styles of London, NYC and those stylish Scandinavians. Think tone on tone layering and mixed textures. Keys pieces: sheer tee‘s & polo necks paired with spaghetti or chunky pinafore straps.

Sexing it up in a modern & stylish way. Adding an element of sheer, softens the silhouette , adds an element of intrigue – it can be girlish with an underwear undertone, a big fat dose of diluted colour or an understated way to play with texture, pattern & volume.

The trend of no trend! Styling that comes from the heart will always be in fashion but this time round its all about shaking what your mama gave you. Showcasing the skin you’re in. This plays across so many parts of wedding style – going for hand-written notes rather than contrived graphics, playing that weird depressing music you love instead of the top 40, choosing a vegan menu, having a menu mostly made of pies, having no menu at all and just serving tequila. Get all your pals involved with a huge bridal party gang or focus on a bit of solo self love. Get married in a huge fuck-off dress in your local wetherspoons on curry night if you want. Wedding celebrations have never been more alternative than they are right now – now is the time to embrace it.

Ruffles 2 ways! Layer upon layer of total fluff & texture or bold ruffle details. Mix with a white or pastel palette & a sequin crust. Keys pieces: ruffled bell sleeves & cuffs, full length tiered ruffles.

A great way to add detail and modernise a classic pale palette. Fantastical florals and bold stripes get our vote! Creating pattern with 3d appliqué. Mix with a nude or block colour or pair pattern on pattern for the brave. (hello clash n’ match bridesmaids!)

Trousers for the ladies. A feminine tux that’s sleek & sexy or a slouchy pyjama number. Either way its the best power play. Mix n’ match textures – velvet, silk, wool but keep it a strong look head to toe with played down hair & beauty.

Return of the vintage lengths with a fresh twist… Maybe a fluffy circle midi with a strong personality shoe? A bold 60s mini with a fussy top. For 2 pieces, match the big & bold with the sleek & simple.

bespoke wedding dress

“Layers of peeling wallpaper, perfect muted tones, torn paper on the floor. A space in decay that we imagined our girl had grown from and was part of the building itself. Her outfits merge with the colour palette of each room – layers of lace and organza grow up her body, torn ruffles of silk and tulle burst out of seams and vintage wallpaper prints combine with soft lace. Her hair is tangled and knotted, braiding and lace from her clothing weave their way up and around her head. Decaying and dying flowers grow out of the peeling walls and cascade down the fireplace onto the remnants of the flat’s previous existence.”
