After the excitement of last year’s royal wedding and Meghan Markle’s stunning, beautiful understated look, many brides have been inspired to replicate the Duchess’s style, and this year’s wedding trends look set to do just that.
The Minimalist Look
Lots of fancy lace and gemstones are looking to take a backseat this year, and instead simple, minimalist designs which emphasise the bride’s natural shape are very much in. Clean cut gowns, with a few subtle details are proving to be very popular, and it is thought that this trend is down to the Duchess. Wearing natural look make-up is also very popular, with brides opting for a fresh faced, healthy glow.
Body language experts have recently revealed their findings on Meghan and Harry based on footage of them on their wedding day.
Grooms are also looking to wear something a bit different this year, and classic traditional morning suits are also being replaced. The latest trends for grooms is seeing them wear bold colours and mix and match styles instead of a one colour three-piece suit, enabling them to express their personality.
Mother of the Bride
A daughter’s wedding day is almost as special for the mother of the bride as it is for the bride herself. Knee length dresses are becoming increasingly popular, and anyone looking for wedding guest dresses can find a range of fashionable wedding guest dresses online at AX Paris, which has a wide range.
Bridesmaids’ dresses are also getting a revamp. Light and floaty fabrics such as chiffon have been very popular over recent years, but this year, fabrics include satin and velvet which are very much ‘in vogue’. Guests looking for fashionable and stylish wedding guest dresses can also look to these fabrics for ideas, and if going for a single colour, they can be easily accessorised.
Last year saw the return of the jumpsuit, but not necessarily as a special occasion or wedding outfit. However, sophisticated, colourful well cut jumpsuits are perfect for guests to wear to a wedding and are great for day and night wear. They can be dressed up or down and also look great on the dance floor. Paired with some killer heels and statement jewellery, this look is perfect for any formal occasion.
