Perfect accessories for destination weddings
7 May 2010
Destination weddings are becoming increasingly popular. Destination Weddings and Honeymoons Magazine estimate the market has grown by 400% in the last 10 years. In fact 1 in 5 US couples is said to now marry abroad. While celebrity influence has been cited as an significant factor in this growth, the intimacy with close family and friends at a smaller event abroad is also a big attraction.
Following these trend patterns, we have identified with Brides opting for the sometimes easier and less fussy destination wedding. Many wedding gown designers have answered this trend by designing ranges that are much lighter, less formal and free flowing for the Bride abroad.[singlepic id=243 w=320 h=240 float=center]
With this in mind we have taken the theme of floral forms a step further with the inclusion or a large selection of accessories designed specifically for the more tropical easy-going mood of this type of wedding. Above you can see a F183 fascinator which is proving extremely popular; a handmade silk flower which is complemented wonderfully with sparkling set-stone crystals. The F116 fascinator below is an illustration of how touches of colour and a variety of sizes and shapes make this flower arrangement collection distinctly destination! The petals in this flower are handmade from Swarovski crystal fabric, which is covered in hundreds of tiny crystals which will shimmer beautifully in the sun.
