As we await the premiere of Downton Abbey Season 3, we thought today would be the perfect opportunity to share a shoot from last spring, that several members of our collective participated in. It's also timely since we recently came across a post by our friends at Bridal Tweet, where they predict trends for 2013. Given our penchant for vintage, we were thrilled to read that they predict "Victoria luxury, flapper style and art deco" will be favourites.
"By that I mean, rich colors (i.e. aubergine, scarlet, royal blue) or all bright whites, thick velvet, chunky crystal, candelabras, lots of lace, fringe, graceful dresses, hairpins and tiaras. All this will be done with an elegant simplicity. It won't be themey or tacky. Weddings will have a sense of hipness layered with rich textures and an air of sophistication. I base my prediction on a few things:
Downton Abbey's popularity will continue to grow especially with a wedding in season three.
The remake of The Great Gatsby is coming out in 2013.
As we slowly climb out of our recession, the comfy barn wedding will morph into a more sophisticated affair." - Maria of A Sweet Start
"Weddings will be really cinematic and vintage inspired" - Tanya of Bowties and Butterflies
"I think the Art Deco trend is going to be big for 2013. It has elements of the vintage trend that was so big in 2012, such as cut glass decorations, lace and pearls. But it's more formal with its old Hollywood vibe - eg. satin, fine jewelry, fur accents, feathers. It's great for a more formal setting because the color scheme is often white, black and gold although silver is a great choice too. As a cake designer, I'm definitely inspired by Art Deco/Great Gatsby-esque decor and fashion and it's showing up in my cake designs for an upcoming bridal show." - Ann Yankowsky of Style Cakes
