Fifties Wedding Dresses

The wedding dress is perhaps one of the most important parts of your special day which is why the style, shape and bridal fabric choice is so important. Wedding dresses are not just exciting for the bride but also for the groom too who cannot wait to see his bride-to-be! One of the trends which is currently in vogue is the fifties style wedding dresses.

As you well know, there are never ending changing trends and fashions from season to season but as mentioned the fifties style is still a very popular trend year on year. These are ultra-feminine in style and usually include bridal lace and a bow or ribbon detail. The dress usually falls between the knee and the ankle and was used in the past for less formal weddings.

This style of wedding dress is usually made to look even fuller even fuller than normal, using a series of hoops, which are inserted throughout the underskirt. The target "look" is to achieve a tiny waist and an appearance of a full skirt. Fifties wedding dresses usually featured scoop necklines and silk and satin were used as the chosen material in the skirt with taffeta for the bodice.

Tulle was a popular choice for many of the dresses and this was layered over the dress in many layers in order to achieve the full skirt. Sometimes pleated tulle was used within the bodice design.

 A wedding dress design which took the wedding industry by storm, many wedding dress designers still incorporate many of the traditional aspects of a 50’s wedding dress into their designs. Many brides who choose to have a 1950’s themed wedding do so because of their interest within this era.

Bridal Lace for Cakes and Dresses

Many brides are choosing to match the bridal lace featured on their wedding gown to the bridal lace they use on their wedding cake. This is a new and upcoming trend and although it sounds crazy it just shows how perfect everything has to be on this special day.

So far we have seen the actual bridal lace material used on the cake but also we have seen the icing created in such a way which it looks like intricate guipure lace, ribbon lace or corded lace.  Now skilled cake makers can create every little detail of the bridal lace and so you might be mistaken for believing the icing is actually fabric!

This icing can then be embellished with crystals in order to imitate the crystal embellishments frequently used as part of the brides wedding dress bustier. The use of bridal lace on both the wedding dress and cake further highlights how important it is for your wedding day to be perfectly coordinated.

Fabric inspired wedding cakes are the new trend for any wedding but it is lace cakes which are having a moment. We are thrilled they are pretty cakes which are romantic, elegant and add a touch of charm and coordination to your wedding day.

You can choose to either have a full bridal lace covering or for the more minimalistic approach you may just choose to have a lace trim around your cake. Some people even just simply place lace applique over a layer of their cake in a random, spaced out arrangement.
