bridal fashion: 2011

             Now that the bulk of Wedding Season 2010 has passed us, it’s a great time to look to towards the trends of 2011. The Spring ‘11 Bridal Market just began in early October. Already analysts are predicting what the trends will be. To get a peek of your own, check out pictures here. Our favorite looks include “simple silhouettes”, “retro-inspired gowns”, and “architectural details”.

paper brides

             So last August your twentysomethings embarked on a little creative project with a local floral designer. The goal was to create some attention getting display pieces for an upcoming bridal event. The floral designer (we’ll call her Lisa Z.) had a fabulous idea of creating wedding gowns from paper, pins, and embellishments. (Is that a chandelier garland necklace and bouquet bucklezz brooch?)

             We pulled our inspiration from current bridal magazines while we started with a linen dress form and only three types of paper. From there we folded, pinned, stapled, and hot glued our way to into our own Project Runway experience.

There were three dresses created in all. Each dress had its own style and personality. The first creation was the romantic ball gown complete with tucks and floral rosettes clustered on her satin sash. Our next venture was designing a short and sassy dress a la Lady Gaga for the unconventional bride (or a fun reception dress). The finale was a dramatic one-shouldered frock with flamenco flair. This show stopper featured a fitted bodice swirling, ruffled mermaid skirt that was mimicked by the oversized ruffle on one shoulder. View all the ladies at www.facebook.com/cuttsfloral.

             These ladies have already attended a bridal event (where they caught the eye of a local bridal boutique owner!). Stay tuned for their upcoming journey as we submit our Paper Brides to national wedding blogs and local art galleries.
