4. ALL THAT JAZZ

With the recent resurgence of all things Art Deco, 1930’s inspired weddings are popping up everywhere. Not only are stationery and styling adding the “Gatsby” look to people’s wedding days but entertainment is also adding to the feel with swing bangs keeping guests on the dance floor long into the night. Brides opting for the 1930’s look are opting for vintage style head pieces rather than traditional veils.
5. FIT FOR A PRINCESS

Thanks to the likes of Kate Middleton’s stunning gown, brides are still opting for a more traditional look again this year. Lace, lace and more lace is making a huge comeback as well as the addition of three quarter sleeves to a once preferred strapless dress.
