Engagement season has officially passed, and soon-to-be newlyweds are flocking to start planning the details of their big day.To get in on the action we recently spent the weekend at the It's My Wedding show at the Tradex in Abbotsford. We met some new designers, reconnected with old friends, and most importantly, saw some stunning styles and trends.
Rustic elegance still seems to be one of the leading trends for BC brides, with birch accents complimenting warm palettes.?Pewters, chocolates and rich jewel tones look great in textured linens, such as pintuck and velvet.
Soothing tones of champagne and cream compliment each other perfectly and create an air of enveloping warmth for a naturally sophisticated design.
Manzanita Branches and dripping crystals look elegant as always, and are perfect for the couple that loves to sparkle and shine!
For a dramatic change to the soft palettes we're seeing this season, we created a gothic romance for the Table Decor Challenge. We paired vibrant red with luxurious black damask linens. To carry the theme throughout all elements, our branchy centrepiece was growing right out of a Harlequin romance novel!
