Handmade Dreams of Mine
Hot off the press! The top summer bridal trends that everyone’s talking about right now.
Marry me clutch
This Marry Me clutch by Charlotte Olympia is the must have bridal accessory of the summer. The clutch features a sparkling diamond ring clasp and different detachable inserts so you can change the colour to suit your wedding dress.
Traditionally Indian brides wore bangles and hand jewellery made of glass, gold and other metals which are said to symbolise long life for the woman’s husband. What was once an Indian tradition has now become a mainstream fashion statement that offers brides that ‘something different’ for wedding jewellery.
The new bridal mani
Nude nails and French manicures are always popular with brides – however they’ve recently been upstaged by a new bridal nail look featuring silver and rose gold glitter. Low key nails are said to be a thing of the past as this more glitzier look takes centre stage. Jenny Packham’s models pictured are wearing Essie’s pale pink Tie the Knot polish with silver Set in Stone glitter and rose gold Summit of Style tips.
Asymmetric wedding dress styles
A pop of colour
While traditional wedding dresses in white, cream and ivory are still in fashion, they are no longer the ‘go to’ choice for brides. Subtle tones of nude, taupe, silver, blush and light blue are now very much in vogue.
We like to keep you abreast of the latest trends and this summer there is simply no escaping the plunging neckline – this celebrity-led look has been spotted everywhere from red carpets to poolside, a trend which is reflected on bridal catwalks.
Embrace the summer season with a romantic floral print wedding dress. Quite a versatile option – brides can opt for a turn of the century look, or more modern and funky feel, depending on their choice of hair style, make up and accessories to pair with the gown.
