Top Wedding Trends

Top wedding trends website ‘The Knot’ has announced the top trends for 2010 weddings. Amongst the hi-tech world of Twitter and Facebook, the top trend this year will be a throwback to Retro Glamour – referencing the hollywood idols of the 50’s and 60’s such as Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn.

The sophisitcation of the era will be seen in the shapes of black & white ball gowns and prom dresses acessorised with lace gloves and pearls. Men will be returning to the traditional tuxedo.

Create the look (left) with a row of south sea white pearls, south sea and diamond earrings, both Coleman Douglas Pearls, and lace overlay dress from Suzanne Neville.

For the hair, go for Mad Men inspired beehivess and up-do’s; make-up is striking with black eye-liner and red lipstick. Think Jackie O…

For more low-key events, cocktail receptions are popular, with American style prom dresses, chunky acessories, big band music and cocktails.

The pearl experts at Coleman Douglas can help you choose the perfect look for your wedding, whatever type of event you choose. Take along a picture of your dress or even a swatch of the fabric of yours and the bridesmaids dresses, and they will help you find the look that is unique to you.
