Given all the gloom and doom with the financial crisis, I think we’re going to see a return to glitz, glamour and the classics for weddings over the next year or so. Think Hollywood red carpet glamour, with fairytale dresses, and a touch of the classics like Audrey Hepburn, the glamour of the 40s or the roaring 20s (as per the Jenny Packham design above – visit her website for a stunning range of dresses).
This is perfect for those couples who want to save money on their wedding, as you can purchase your clothing from vintage or recycle stores, or even wear your mother’s wedding dress.
The Wise Bride is soon introducing a range of accessories to perfectly match this trend, Australian handmade accessories by Chameleon Designs. They include gorgeous vintage-inspired fascinators, haircombs and birdcage veils.
We are also in the process of designing a new range of favours to complement this theme:
Our stylish white trapunta diamond embossed box tied with black grosgrain ribbon and finished with a glittering round diamente buckle and white feather is just perfect for your 1920s wedding.
For true Hollywood glam, our clear cone is filled with classic white sugared almonds tied with shimmering organza and silver ribbons and finished with a feather.
