Host a ruffle-theme wedding
If you’re looking for something different for your wedding day why not host a ruffle-theme wedding; elegant, classy and so on trend, here’s how to rock the ruffle look.
Ruffles are versatile and pretty, and adding a ruffle accent is a fantastic way to emphasise your individual style. The secret to working a ruffle theme into your wedding is to remember – less is most definitely more. Choose to focus on one or two ruffle inspired ideas only instead of all those listed below for a chic and stylish result.
Ruffles are fun, undoubtedly elegant, and a great way to add a modern twist to traditional wedding dress styles. They are a versatile option for the bride who wants to make a fashion statement, from subtle ruffles on slinky designs to full princess gown – there’s a style to suit all tastes.
Look out for the fishtail ruffle skirt which emphasises, or creates the illusion of having, an hourglass figure. Spring/Summer 2016 collections are bursting with this new trend, however our personal favourite has to be Ines di Santo’s asymmetrical dress with pearl strand embellishment – what a head turner!
For a soft and feminine feel choose a dress with floaty material and soft ruffle detail such as the Ariella Elize gown. For a modern sophisticated look opt for a structured dress with solid ruffles around the neckline as featured on the Alfred Sung style pictured.
Mother of the bride and groom
Mums can get in on the action too with these stylish mother of the bride and groom dresses.
Ruffle iced wedding cakes in rosette, vertical and horizontal wavy line layers are the new big thing in wedding cake design. The trend works particularly well combined with ombre colours.
These floaty ruffle table skirts and chair covering look romantic, whimsical and are actually quite inexpensive to buy. Keep the summer showers at bay with a cute ruffle trim umbrella.
