5 Fall-Winter Catwalk Trends to Bring into Your Wedding
Your wedding isn't a catwalk, right? Not only that, it's not a Friday night - so incorporating those must-have catwalk trends into your big day would seem all but impossible (and a tad ill-advised). Well, here at Dreamwedding we wanna tell you that impossible is nothing! It just so happens that Adidas told you first, but we know you really listen to us. Here are five ways the fall-winter 2014 catwalks are just crying out to be included in your wedding!
Plaid was everywhere for fall - at Vera Wang, Kenneth Cole and Tommy Hilfiger - and while it may not, at first glance, seem like the easiest fabric to interpret at your wedding (plaid wedding dress, anyone?), you can definitely give little nods to this trend without going crazy! If your husband-to-be is into the idea, you could give him a plaid necktie or pocket square; if you're marrying in December, plaid napkins and table runners can be a festive touch; or you can use plaid for your stationery. We love these rustic invites!
Shades of green were at Proenza Schouler, Derek Lam and Altuzarra, to name but a few, for fall, making a relatively easy addition to your wedding color palette (and a great option for those who want to harness their Celtic heritage). Like anything, you could start off small with emerald-green nails, move on up to green suits for your groom and groomsmen, and go all out with green gowns for your 'maids!
Faux or otherwise, animal pelts had a very strong showing on catwalks for fall, at Donna Karan, Diane von Furstenberg, J Mendel and more! For a fall/winter wedding, depending on climate, fur (we recommend faux, if nothing else then just so as not to cause offense / distress to your guests!) is super-easy to incorporate, getting fur stoles or shrugs for you and your 'maids.
Another great option for cold-weather brides, gloves were big in Paris (and if it's big in Paris...) - and there's a certain vintage beauty to gloves on the bridal party. For an old-school feel, go elbow-length; for something a little more "boudoir chic", go for wrist-length gloves in a light fabric or lace.
Both Louis Vuitton and Maison Martin Margiela used belts to cinch their models' waists - a look that works oh-so well with (some) wedding gowns. Go for a subtle effect in white or ivory, or really push the boat out with a contrasting shade or fabric. Alternatively, meet in the middle (if you'll excuse the pun) by going for a metallic belt that's both eyecatching and alluringly subtle!
