The National Wedding Show Catwalk Spring 2017

Did you visit any of The National Wedding Shows this spring? We always look forward to The National Wedding Shows, especially the spring shows. For us they kick-start the wedding season and are a great opportunity to see what’s going to be hot for the season ahead.

The National Wedding Show Spring 2017 Catwalk

The National Wedding Show catwalk is the biggest bridal catwalk of the spring and it’s always a fabulous show. The Revlon Runway is The National Wedding Show’s flagship feature, showcasing a selection of dresses from top designers and high street names. Inspiring brides-to-be to achieve their ‘wedding day look’, the catwalk pairs beautiful dresses with on-trend hair, make-up and accessory ideas.

As well as bridal wear, the catwalk always features the latest bridesmaid dresses, groomswear and mother of the bride outfits. This spring saw a diverse array of styles, shapes and colours. The stand-out colour this season is blush – this makes us very happy!

The National Wedding Show Spring 2016 Catwalk

A few weeks ago we went to The National Wedding Show in London, and had front row seats for the spring 2016 catwalk show, which was, as always, incredible.

As a reader of The Wedding Community, you probably know just how excited we get when it is ‘show time’, and one of the main reasons is because of the catwalk, as we get a glimpse of what the season’s wedding fashions will be.

The wedding dresses this season really have the wow factor. There was a lot of lace and detail featuring on the dresses, with A-line and the fuller skirt making a bit of a comeback.

Our favourite dresses on this seasons catwalk at The National Wedding Show were by Alfred Angelo. Which is your favourite?

National Wedding Show Catwalk Autumn 2015

The National Wedding Show catwalk Autumn 2015 was incredible. We get so excited when we see a sneak peek of the new season bridal wear, and wow; brides-to-be are in for a real treat!

The National Wedding Show catwalk showed that there are so many beautiful wedding dresses for 2016, and a huge trend is going to be sheer lace necklines, shoulders and sleeves; and we LOVE it – it’s so feminine and ethereal.

Also on the catwalk we saw some quirkier styles; the two-piece with the bare midriff (if you dare to bare!), the short front – long back dress, and dresses with pockets.

With so many gorgeous dresses next season it might be a tough decision choosing THE dress. To help you, take a look at this article – How to Find Your Perfect Wedding Dress, by Ellie Sanderson.

So, without further ado, the stunning pictures from The National Wedding Show Catwalk Autumn 2015…

Cool Groomswear Ideas Mood Board

Cool Groomswear Ideas

We love cool looking grooms and groomsmen, so today we are sharing some ideas for cool groomswear. Everything from sharp suits with a sheen, to a groom in a tweed suit with open shirt and cravat. Oh, and what do you think about groomsmen in jeans? We think it’s pretty cool! Okay, it’s probably best you don’t wear jeans if you are having a traditional church wedding, but if you are having a relaxed affair then jeans will work well.

What about braces, bow ties, floral shirts or pastel striped jackets? We love them all, and hope you do too!

Groomsmen Bow Ties

We recently featured a really cool idea for a ‘Bow Tie Bar’ as one of our Lunchtime Treats on The Wedding Community’s Facebook page. If you didn’t see it it’s picture one on this wedding mood board. Basically it’s so any male (or female) guests who wish to don a bow tie for your wedding can choose one from the bow tie bar.

This made us think about how cool it is when grooms and groomsmen wear bow ties. Whether this is with a jacket for a formal look, or informal with braces or a waistcoat, it will look totally amazing!

Here are some cool ideas for groomsmen bow ties.
