Stuck for floral inspiration? We caught up with Amie Bone Flowers and Flowers by Roxanne at the National Wedding Show this weekend for an insight into the budding new trends for 2015. We met with Amie first at her impressive stand; we were amazed by her stunning decadent floral display which had taken nearly a day to construct. With the increasing popularity of the rustic chic theme, Amie suggested that the florals set to trend in 2015 are carnations and gypsophila.
After all, red is the colour of passion and love so why not use this dramatic colour for your wedding theme! Red wouldn’t be many brides first choice or even second choice but hopefully these ideas will give you inspiration to channel the red vibe. Let’s start with the dress, yes a red wedding dress! There have been many different coloured gowns rocking the catwalk lately like blues and pinks but red seems to be the biggest coloured trend in 2014 which would be perfect for those braver brides. Celebrities such as Jessica Biel and Anne Hathaway have both turned their back on tradition by choosing coloured dresses so why not join them and make heads turn while you strut down the aisle.
Are you bored with all the wedding colour schemes? If yes then why not make a statement and have a metallic themed wedding which is great alternative twist from the normal colour schemes. Here are some ways to incorporate metallics into your day without breaking the bank! The dress is a great way to grasp the metallic theme; there have been stunning gold dresses rocking the catwalk from Oscar de la Renta, Vera Wang and Monique Lhuillier. In many ways, wearing a gold dress can feel more special than a white one as it is very unique and can be more flattering with golden and olive skins tones.
Horse shoes have always been considered good luck for weddings, and miniature horse shoes used to feature in bouquets and on wedding cakes.
So what about having a horse shoe from a winning Lambourn racehorse, decorated with ribbons to match your colour scheme and with a ribbon loop to ensure it always stays the right way up to hold the luck in.
The choice of shoes currently includes a limited number from the Henry Cecil trained Frankel and many other famous winners.
