Ensure your wedding is a fashion forward affair with some of the top trends set to showcase at Bride: The Wedding Show at Westpoint Arena from March 25-26.

Party Lights, Stand number: 300

The South West wedding market seems to have flirted with a couple of trends popular elsewhere (including canopies of tungsten filament lamps), but fairy lights remain the most popular request for weddings - available from Party Lights. It’s hard to beat the traditional feel that fairy lights create and it’s difficult to see that changing.


Scarlett Vintage, Stand number: 329 

What’s the big on-trend hair accessory for 2017? Scarlett Vintage believe it's the relaxed styling of the circlet or hair vine. Lightweight and easy to wear, the accessory can be worn with any hairstyle: up, down, short or long... so simple to make it your own. 


Truly Delightful, Stand number: 329

Truly Delightful just loves bridal dresses and brides, but what the team particularly love is the big news for 2017: anything goes. Truly Delightful has long, short, lace, glamorous, slinky, layered, boho, super styled or simple designs, but the one thing they all have in common – they’re all different, just like the boutique's bridal customers.


HEY JULES!, Stand number: 512

New for 2017 is Beatrice from HEY JULES!. Warm gold with beautiful pastel flowers and leaves, in muted tones of lilac, blue, green and white, in this delicate, pretty and versatile pin-in piece, which gently sparkles with Swarovski crystals. Stunning against all hair colours and styles, the accessory looks especially exquisite when pinned in place at the back of an up-do.
Papier Bloom, Stand number: 326

This year, Amy Denney at Papier Bloom has seen a sway towards more quirky bouquets with brighter, more eclectic colour palettes and personal touches like wooden tiles with initials. Amy predicts that this will carry on next year with more greenery and bolder, more patterned papers and contrasting colours; paper flowers are never boring.


Dorothy Morant Millinery, Stand number: 805

This floral bridal tiara from Dorothy Morant is created from handmade silk flowers. The petals are individually painted and constructed, making each bloom completely unique. The roses can be made in many different colours, shades and sizes, making it possible to co-ordinate beautifully with specific outfits and styles.


Ailsa Munro Dressmaker, Stand number: 105

Sheer fabrics like lace, organza and chiffon are all over the new bridal collections and Ailsa Munro will help you to take on the trend. This can be a really fun way to flirt with the line between sexy and modest, but to stay on the right side choose floatier silhouettes and sweet bridal detailing, like the cuffs on this Ailsa Munro Sovay wedding dress.
