Well the U.K. Barbie & Ken have finally tied the night… no longer waity-Katie the girl’s got a ring on her finger and baby it’s overdo.
No detail was overlooked and no expense spared for the couple’s royal nuptials. (How much did the royal wedding cost Britain…?)
The wedding has changed the way brides will think about their big day… bridal stores across the U.S. and the U.K. have already announced changes in bridal fashion. Dresses and themes are leaning towards the old fashioned, with twenties-esque lace, long trains, and veils.
- Kate’s hairstyle complimented her effortless style. The half down, half back look will be sure to catch on with brides who do not want the more traditional updo look. The hair ornament is the most important element of the hairstyle.
- Long waves and romantic curls are also projected for 2011 Weddings
- Veils were becoming something of the past with the popularity of tiaras, however, with the Kate’s veil and tiara combination, the look is sure to catch on. The bird cage veil is projected to be the most popular for the season.
- Headpiece fashion for Brides and wedding guests will become big in 2011. Tiaras with veils, flowers and hats, oh my! Headpieces were in the forefront on the big day. The hats of the guests were the second most photographed to the bride and were definitely more photographed than the groom.
- Crystal and pearl adornments on bouquets, napkins, centerpieces, etc. are very popular as well. If the Royal Wedding has taught us anything it’s that you should not forget one minor detail on the big day.
- Sleeves are a burgeoning trend, with boleros and lace neckline details topping off the wedding dress.
- The Second Dress
- As for guests, they should never out-dress the wedding party. However, guests should dress their best and stand out with their own personal style.
