Spring/Summer Forecast

Bonjour mes amis,

The office is finally finished! Yes, after some back breaking work The Little White Wedding Company has moved into its very own oasis. The vintage style and elegant simplicity reflect the charm and grace of the company and the people that work there.

With the madness over, we found it a perfect time to put together some trend forecasts for all the ‘brides-to-be’. With bibles in hand we have compiled the must have styles and expert predictions for Spring and beyond.

With Spring in the air what a perfect time to talk flowers! Bouquets this season have ‘sprung’ with the first blooms of Spring. Colours of pastel pinks, lavenders and buttercup yellows blossom with the sweet aromas of peaches, cherries and jasmine. Think vintage details with crystal ornaments and natural fibres, bound together with and antique broach. Or for something bolder use strong sorbet colours of orange and yellow along side sexy reds to reflect an exotic spring carnival of colour. Remember to have fun with your bouquet and to make sure they reflect you personally while keeping within your theme.

From little details to big decisions, the trend forecasts for dresses are in! While we maybe experiencing the warm days of Spring and Summer, the catwalks are already looking towards Autumn and Winter 2010. Perfect for those March to early August dates. So take notes now! Textures are a must, think feathers, embroidery, beading, lace work and intricate head wear to finish of your ensemble. This all embodies the vintage spirit as the must have theme for seasons to come. While white is a must, latte, mocha and vintage creams are standout trends throughout the bridal party. Gold is the new silver and metallic fabrics in wet look finishes update delicate styles. When it comes to jewellery dowse yourself in stones and flashes of coral, garnet and aquamarine to finish the vintage charm.

Make sure your always reading you bibles and happy hunting!
