As the region’s wedding specialists, Vincenzo Butera AAF, AIFD, PFCI of Butera The Florist announces the up and coming styles for 2013. Our blog series introduces seven of the hottest fashions, with sequel blogs unpacking each look.
You’ll see a lot of “Downton Abbey” elements as this popular show continues to whet our appetites for all things British. Other influences include glitter and industrial glam. New takes on cascading waterfall bouquets are definitely in. What matters most, though, Vincenzo reminds us, is discovering the bride’s own style: “These looks are all popular, but they are not all for everyone.”
Counting down, we have:
7. Eco-Chic—succulents, artichokes, woodland fusion
6. Greens—the color green is hot and heading toward aqua
5. Classic Elegance—a subtle, tailored look with neo-waterfall bouquets
stunning waterfall bouquet featuring coral peony
4. Deep Jewel Tones—dramatic hues with gems and jade accents
Calla, roses and orchids
3. Glamour—warm metallics and elegant blooms
2. New Victorian/Steam Punk—think “Hugo” and gothic machinery
1. Beauty & Romance—lace, femininity, and the softer side of New Victorian
“Our job as wedding stylists,” says Vincenzo, “is to extract from each client who she is and what she is all about and what she wants to project on her wedding day. We guide brides through a series of decisions that will create the style that suits them personally.”
On the Horizon
As hired “pickers” scour the U.K, Belgium and France for antique items, these are showing up in home décor, and we’ll be interpreting these in florals. Watch for a future blog about the Euro Countryside look that’s heading our way.
On the wane are racier bridal gowns (we’re getting a bit more modest) and the sustainable emphasis on the eco style. The current eco look is all about natural texture and a woodsy feel. “Big and bushy” florals are out, and bright jelly bean colors seem to have run their course. Overall, we are seeing more refined looks dominating on the wedding style scene.
