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.

_____________________________
• A U T H E N T I C

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.

• P A T T E R N

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.

• L E N G T H S

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.

Our next Bridal Market is approaching fast – October 30th y’all! Get that date saved! – and we love to get some of the team together for a bit of a collaborative pow wow ahead of each market to get us all motivated, inspired and set the vibe for the event. When even just a few of The Wedding Collective suppliers work together – all kinds of crazy sparks fly and this time we had the MOST fun styling and capturing our dream Bride-gal.

We’re talking real effortless style, a chic chunky lace dress, big n’ blousy blooms, deep reds + rusts + velvets  – throwing on your favourite gold hoop earrings + hair up in a casual super chic bun, then hopping off to City Hall to get married. Thats our gal.

St Andrews in the Square is the classic inner city venue with equal parts polish and character. High-end vibes in an urban, edgy location..  so expect our usual Bridal Market feels, but wearing a long suede coat/after a pricey blow-dry/in heels/drinking a ginger bellini.

So head here to grab an early bird ticket for our Sunday afternoon event. We’ll be bringing our most creative wedding game to give you some inspiration for your own celebration – Whether you’re planning a tipi wed-fest, an eclectic city-centre soiree or a kin-folk inspired get-down in the woods. We got you!

Heads bowed hands clapped for dream team girl gang with us on this shoot . . .
