So here's part two of Wedding Trends for 2009
direct from the national bridal show in Las Vegas.
Veils: We saw more lace edged veils and
mantilas, as well as embroidered veils in color
with crystals on them. Lots and lots of embellishments
on some veils, meaning real Swarovski crystals
and beads on the edges. We also saw veils in
colors to match the dresses. I'm not sure how
I'd feel about a green veil!
We also saw face veils, cage veils and fascinators
attached to cage veils. A lot of the cage veils
were embellished with feathers or crystals and
flowers. This is a very cool look for the destination
bride or the ultra sophisticated bride. This look
works best with a sleek gown, it doesn't balance
off a ballgown.
Tiaras are still popular, but they are smaller and
more detailed. There are a lot of small headband
type tiaras, and tiaras with natural seed pearls
and Swarovski crystals. The coolest tiara I saw
was by Hera's Gems, it was small starfish on a thin
band for the beach bride. So cute!
Shoes: Ohmygosh, I am in love with Benjamin
Adams shoes. They are just amazing in person.
They are the finest wedding shoes I've ever seen.
They are double padded inside for comfort and here
is the best part: their silk shoes can by dyed. The
shoes are expensive, but worth every penny.
I am a shoe freak, and I have to have a pair of the
platform shoes in my closet. Love them!
There is also a line called Pink out of London that
are cute and very fashion forward. They had some
children's beaded shoes that were just precious
if you are willing to pay around $50 for them.
Foundations: Felina Lingerie has a bustiere type
bra corset that is just adorable. It reminds me
of a swimsuit from the old Hollywood movies on TNT.
It would be cute to wear on the honeymoon, not sure
if the pleating would show through the wedding dresses
or not once its on. I only saw it on a mannequin, but it
was novel, it even had garters on it.
