Demetrios definitely did not disapoint with beautifully beaded and embroidery-clad gowns for the ultimate princess dress! Detachable, extending and cascading trains featured heavily in the new collections to take the bride from ceremony to reception with two equally elegant options from a fuller skirt to one that is fit for the dance floor!

In celebration of the huge Harrogate event, the Bridal Buyer Awards also took place during the evening of the second day at Harrogate! The girls at Wedding Ideas didn’t take a lot of persuasion to rise to the occasion of this annual glam event while Boutiques, designers and names also put on their best dresses for a sociable evening of networking, champagne and smart dinner before the year’s awards and winners were revealed! We were thrilled to see the likes of Tony Mental, Justin Alexander, Sassi Holford and Watters take home prestigious awards for their work and devotion to the Industry. Huge Congrats!

MIXED COLOUR PALETTES FOR BEST WEDDING

MIXED COLOUR PALETTES FOR BEST WEDDING

MIXED COLOUR PALETTES

Gone are the days of picking just one or two colours for your wedding palette, as couples get more experimental with their selection using a range of 4 or 5 colours. To build the perfect palette, we suggest starting with two light colours such as a beautiful blush or cream, next adding in a darker colour such as navy or charcoal, and finally incorporating a highlight colour or two such as peach or cornflower blue! The beauty of having a varied palette is that it gives more interest to all elements of the day, be it the stationery, flowers or décor, and gives a more relaxed feel to the look of your wedding day.

SEASONAL STYLING

More couples are starting to incorporate the season that they will wed into their stationery … be that with spring blooms, autumn leaves or wintery snowflakes. We love this idea especially on the save the dates, as it gives a feel to the day during a time when it may be the opposite time of year that the cards are received. Building your theme around the season you will marry gives a lovely authentic feel to the styling and ambience of your day!

BOTANICAL

Flowers may traditionally have been a key part of the wedding day, but modern couples are increasingly taking a more laid back rustic style approach to this area using foliage and leaves for a beautiful botanical look! The result is a clean and minimal finish that works perfectly with wooden elements, metallic props and string lighting.

HANDWRITTEN FONTS

Calligraphy has always been a part of wedding stationery but this beautiful art form can be expensive to source for your stationery. With so many amazing handwritten-look fonts available, this look is now much more affordable whilst still having that romantic finish that hand lettering gives to wedding stationery. Handwritten fonts look great on all aspects of your stationery from save the dates through to welcome signs and place cards used on the day itself!

MIXING MATERIALS

With so many lovely card stocks out there to form the basis of your stationery, combining different weights and textures can add a whole new dimension to the look of your invitations and save the dates! We love using a natural kraft card mixed with a white textured base and translucent paper for a luxury look. This trend can be taken one step further by adding wooden embellishments or metallic threads!

Top Stylists Share Their Secrets

Elegance isn’t solely defined by what you wear. It’s how you carry yourself, how you speak, what you read. We have got to change our ethics and our financial system and our whole way of understanding the world.

It has to be a world in which people live rather than die a sustainable world.I didn’t want to be a fashion designer, and for a good half of my career I didn’t like it. I always wanted to do other things. It’s the attitude you bring to clothes that make the difference. Everything I do is a matter of heart, body and soul.

Age and size are only numbers.

When I was young, I lived like an old woman, and when I got old, I had to live like a young person

CONFIDENCE! IF YOU HAVE IT, YOU CAN MAKE ANYTHING LOOK GOOD

I still appreciate individuality. Style is much more interesting than fashion, really. Attitude is everything. It’s really easy to get colors right. It’s really hard to get black – and neutrals – right.


1. Accessories With Personality 

Never in my wildest dreams did I entertain the idea that I would become a fashion designer. I am no longer concerned with sensation and innovation, but with the perfection of my style.

I’ve treated the waistcoat as if it were a corset, so that it becomes the first layer in the process of putting clothes on the body. There is constant motion between layering and revealing.


2. Flower Print for Spring

Elegance isn’t solely defined by what you wear. It’s how you carry yourself, how you speak, what you read.

I think it’s an old fashioned notion that fashion needs to be exclusive to be fashionable. I am no longer concerned with sensation and innovation, but with the perfection of my style.

You’re only as good as your last collection, which is an enormous pressure. Elegance is not the prerogative of those who have just escaped from adolescence, but of those who have already taken possession of their future.

Attitude is everything. You have a more interesting life if you wear impressive clothes. I wanted to dress the woman who lives and works, not the woman in a painting. My dresses are very reasonably priced, for dresses that are cut on the body.

Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening. 


3. Glasses Are a Must Have

I always thought what you wore underneath was as important as what you wear on top. Beauty is perfect in its imperfections, so you just have to go with the imperfections.

War taught me that not everything is glamorous. I didn’t want to be a fashion designer, and for a good half of my career I didn’t like it. I always wanted to do other things.

When I was young, I lived like an old woman, and when I got old, I had to live like a young person.


4. Express Your Emotions

We must never confuse elegance with snobbery. Some people think luxury is the opposite of poverty. It is not. It is the opposite of vulgarity. Design and style should work toward making you look good and feel good without a lot of effort so you can get on with the things that matter.

I’m an accomplice to helping women get what they want. I never like to think that I design for a particular person. I design for the woman I wanted to be, the woman I used to be, and – to some degree – the woman I’m still a little piece of.
