Pastels and plumes for wedding guests with panache

World renowned designers such as Elie Saab, Carolina Herrera and Oscar de la Renta didn't stop at wedding dresses.

Chic styles for wedding guests were also showcased at the New York and Barcelona bridal weeks, featuring reworks of the typically muted wedding colour palette, eye-catching textures and high hemlines.

Stand out from the crowd with one of 2013's trends that featured on both sides of the Atlantic.

Short and sweet

The pastel palette featured highly in both bridal weeks. These romantic hues lend themselves to a spring or summer time nuptials.

Go for a knee-length design to give the soft tones a fun, flirty edge.


Jewel tones

Bold and majestic, these gemstone colours make a real statement.

They work equally well for summer and winter weddings. Team with metallic accessories and you'll be ready to shine.


Terrific textures

Tassels, feathers, ruffles and layers are perfect for a more striking look, full of colour and volume.

If this sounds too daring, add some plumage to your clutch or wear a pair of tasselled heels.
