From the bridal shows featured at the Couture: Bridal Fashion Week, the world discovered the latest bridal fashion from the most popular designers in the the bridal industry, for the upcoming seasons. Although we didn't attend, we stayed abreast of all the latest coverage from this past weekend at this high fashion event in New York!
When we meet with our bride's to discuss their wedding designs, we always ask if they've chosen their dress. Usually they have, or they have a pretty good idea of the style that want. Believe it or not, this helps us with their event design! Why? Because their dress tells us about their personality and their taste in design, additional to the hundreds of cutouts that they bring in to us. Bridal Fashion Week played this same role! Not only have we seen several gowns across the web that we adore but instead of critiquing the gowns from a fashion aspect, we reflected on them from an event designer point of view. We are here to tell you how trends from these modish gowns can be incorporated into your wedding design.
Alternative Classic Tones Steal the Show
A Little Skin is Not a Sin
Brides that are looking for a touch a sexy in their wedding gown, can achieve this look with gowns featuring transparent fabrics. These fabrics may be lace or tulle, similar to linen options for your wedding design. When choosing your linens, remember that their are many more choices other than the retired white cotton hotel linen. Even think beyond the poly or satin fabric, and consider using a sheer patterned overlay to adorn your tables. Linen overlays will add a grandiose dimension to your wedding table design.
Three Dimensional Floral Design (We call it texture)
In the event design world, a key design element incorporated into every creative concept is texture. Apparently, in the bridal dress world, this is just as important too! Dresses with three-dimensional fabric flowers and ruffles, ripped the runway. We love this idea of volume and couldn’t help but associate it with event design. Texture creates depth to you wedding design that can be implemented in almost any form! From your centerpieces to your accent decor, like pillows, creating texture in your design enhances the presentation of your wedding design.
So as you can see, all aspects of the wedding, from the fashion to the decor, should complement each other to create a uniform event design. How does fashion inspire your wedding or other event design plans?
