From fashion to flowers, these autumn wedding trends are sure to be seen at a celebration near you…
Statement sleeves are hear to stay, with designers like Ines Di Santo (pictured above), Mira Zwillinger and Halfpenny London choosing statement tulle puffs or gorgeously light kimono-style lace sleeves – ideal for detailed volume without the weight.
We couldn’t be happier to see the appliqué trend back this season, and whether you’re a bold bride or fanciful and feminine, there is a 3D floral look for you.
Choose silk dimensional blooms for something classic yet romantic, or pare it back with a tulle flower belt. For those wanting a hint of colour, nobody does it better than Toronto-based designer Narces. Choose from the label’s evening wear line for a more offbeat look.
Add a touch of luxe to your bridesmaids’ look with silver, gold, gems, pearls and pavé. We’re loving this Riva Diamond Hoop Ring from Monica Vinader, £160 (pictured left) and this Raya Hammered Matt Silver Cuff from Annie Haak Designs, £155 (pictured right).
Send florist and artist Harriet Parry a photograph of your bouquet, and she’ll capture it forever more in one of her exquisite, tiny postcard paintings.
Each watercolour wonder takes hours to create using a magnifying glass – and makes the perfect paper gift for a first anniversary. From £120.
If you’ve caught the bouquet bug, Flower Colour Guide by New York floristry designers Putnam & Putnam is a bookshelf essential. The hardback is the first of its kind to group flowers by hue, with an emphasis on colour schemes. £24.95.
We’re taking our winter floral inspo from Bloom & Wild’s new-season offerings, which include gorgeous creamy amaryllis stems, Scandi-style foliage and hot peach Coraline roses.
The luxury letterbox flowers make great thank-you gifts for guests after the big day, or why not just treat yourself to a subscription instead? From £33.
Brit bridal shoe extraordinaire Charlotte Mills has unveiled her first vegan range. The handcrafted designs are made using the finest synthetic materials – and still feature the brand’s signature rhyme-embossed soles. The range is available to pre-order now, in time for delivery in September. From £230 to £260.
The flower girls
Cute flower girl alert! The new-season collection from Marie-Chantal includes the sweetest silk dupion dresses and separates, not to mention embellished tulle pieces and jacquard prints, that are perfect for mini maid style. From £130.
For shoes your flower girls will love, the Mini range from Sophia Webster is a little footwear fashionistas paradise. The sweet styles come in metallic shades of rose gold and glitter, as well as more colourful designs – all with that signature butterfly motif. So pretty, they won’t want to take them off. From £150.
Still looking for the perfect way to pop the question to your girls? Check out the new Be My Bridesmaid gift box set from Team Hen, £22.99.
The A5 package comes filled with goodies – many of which can be personalised – all sealed with rose-gold ribbon.
Planning a festive or NYE wedding? Spend the evening popping bottles with Moët & Chandon’s new-look mini crackers. Complete with popping confetti, they make great favours.
And if you’re feeling extra flash, look out for the champagne label’s new personalisation service in Selfridges from October. Crackers, £22 each.
