Driven by the interest in vintage wedding details and last year's royal wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, the predicted 2012 wedding accessory trends indicate a shift toward the dramatic when it comes to putting together a wedding day look.
Lexington, KY (PRWEB) January 11, 2012
When it comes to predicting bridal details and wedding trends for the upcoming season, most brides turn to wedding websites and wedding magazines for inspiration. However, sometimes, the most reliable indicator of a wedding trend is not what the magazines display – it's what people are asking retailers about.
WithThisBling.com, an online bridal accessories boutique, has noticed increased interest in several wedding details which are predicted to surge in 2012. Mainly driven by the interest in vintage wedding details and last year's royal wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, the predicted 2012 wedding accessory trends indicate a shift toward the dramatic when it comes to putting together a wedding day look. Here are the prominent trends predicted to sweep the runways (and down the aisle) in 2012:
Colored Bling: The trend of colored rhinestones and crystals has been growing over the course of the past five years, as many brides look to pull their ensemble inspiration from vintage sources, including vintage costume jewelry from time periods ranging from the Victorian era to the 1970's. Prominent colored rhinestones on the horizon for 2012 include black rhinestones and red rhinestones, as many brides look to add dramatic details to their overall wedding look.
Bouquet Jewelry: Recent years have also seen brides adding sparkle to their bouquets by pinning brooches to the ribbon binding the bouquet or even by carrying bouquets made entirely of rhinestone flower pins. In 2012, another accent will help to lend sparkle to a bride's bouquet: bouquet jewelry. Fashioned out of rhinestones, pearls, or crystals in various shapes and designs, bouquet jewelry is fast becoming an essential bouquet element.
Feather Fascinators: This trend emerged along with the attention to vintage details several years ago and in 2012, feather fascinators are predicted to be a main alternative to traditional veils. Using feather and rhinestone details, fascinators are large bridal hair accessories that are usually worn on the side of the head as part of the hairstyle. Feather fascinators can use artificial flowers, birdcage veils, and of course, feathers, to create a dramatic yet classic wedding look. Many brides are inspired to wear feather fascinators after last year's royal wedding, which saw a resurgence in wedding hats and fascinator head pieces.
Side Accent Headbands: Ideal for 1920's-inspired weddings, side accent headbands are likely to be seen more at 2012 weddings. Within the past three years, headbands made a comeback as long hairstyles became more mainstream and fashionable. Driven by celebrities like Zooey Deschanel, Paris Hilton, and the cast of “Gossip Girl”, the trend of wearing headbands has made its way from the street to down the aisle with side accent headbands for brides. Usually featuring rhinestone, applique, bead, feather, flower, or ribbon details, side accent headbands are predicted to appear in many wedding hairstyles in the coming year.
Taking note of these trends and increased customer interest, WithThisBling.com has expanded its collection of bridal accessories to include items that represent each trend. Feather fascinators, side accent bridal headbands, colored bling, and bouquet jewelry are now all prominent items in the retailer's selection.
