Wedding trends for spring/summer 2019 – Metals…
Spring weddings next year could well be adorned with more precious metals than just the wedding rings…
Weddings are a festive occasion after all and what can be more festive than a bit of sparkle? Think about it, the engagement ring, the champagne, the smiles, why not the dress, cake topper and manicures too?
Metallic materials for glorious gowns
Harper’s Bazaar recently showcased metallic wedding gowns in a huge ‘wedding trends’ blog. These stunning creations really capture the glamorous essence of the fabric, without looking too heavy. And look, a flower crown too, as we mentioned in our previous blog! You might notice that you can’t actually see any shoes in these pictures, so how do you dress the feet when the gown is this glitzy?

If you’re heart has been set on those Jimmy Choo’s for your special day however, you can’t go wrong with a strappy sandal. It’s a great opportunity to show of your freshly painted toes too.
These stunning sandals from Jimmy Choo will set you back around £550, but a more affordable option could be found on the high street. Like these…
Metallic nail designs
So you’ve got the dress, the shoes, now the for the nails… Don’t forget, you may wish to change the floor sweeping gown for a dress you can get down and boogie in later on, so the toes need to be treated to a little jazzy makeover too. We love the idea of going really over the top with the decoration on the toes because, why not, it’s just for one day, right?!
But as for the finger nails… Your hands will be the focus of the attention for a while, the photographer will definitely take a few shots of them and everyone will be shaking your hand at some point, so try not to overshadow the new rings with your nail polish, but let’s have a bit of fun.
Metallic wedding decorations
If metallics is your theme, you’ll be looking for wedding decorations that can carry it through. Of course, there’s spot UV or foil printing for your invitations, plenty of glitter balls, bows, balloons, linens and backdrops you can choose from, and then there’s the cake…
