Marc Jacob’s Glamorous Wedding

Fashion designer Marc Jacobs got married to his partner Char Defrancesco in New York at the weekend, and, as you can imagine, it was a suitably glamorous affair. With most of the World’s supermodels on speed dial, the starry guest list included Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Amber Valleta, Rita Ora, Rachel Zoe, Debbie Harry, Chloe Sevigny and Gigi and Bella Hadid amongst many others, and the style on show was gothic, glamorous, and totally un-wedding like.

Taking aside the handsome couple, who were dressed impeccably in shades of green, the outfits of the wedding guests were more suitable for a red carpet than a wedding. Certainly, there were no pastels or silks in sight. Take for instance, the utterly stunning Naomi Campbell, who chose to wear black and sport a bare midriff, along with trousers and a cape. She looked incredible – but for a wedding? I can only guess that when attending a wedding of one of the world’s foremost fashion designers, then fashion forward really is the only way to go.

Next up is Kate Moss. She wore a bewitching Art Deco effect dress in a mauve shade. I loved this look, it was elegant, the colour was unusual, and with minimum accessories it was totally perfect.

Other looks included Luke Sabbat with Chloe Sevigny, in a 1980s style lace cocktail dress and dotted sheer tights, supermodel Helena Christenson, also in black (is this the colour for weddings this year?) and Bella and Gigi Hadid, who went for rather masculine suits that were accessorised with glamorous tops.

My favourite look is that worn by Kate Moss, with this stunning white faux fur and little black dress worn by Amber Valleta coming a very close second.

There will be many more weddings in 2019, but I’m guessing that this one will be the one with the most glamorous, most A list guest list.

New Colourful Wedding Trends For 2019

 

Brides getting married in 2019 get to experience the newest colorful trends in bridal gowns and accessories. Shades of white are no longer expected, and couples can showcase their flair and personality on their big day. Nowadays, destination weddings are also super trendy so world-wide vendors, such as hotels, restaurants, even hostels, beach pubs, working hubs, remote spaces or bars and private beaches, are making awesome deals to let you know that their location would be “the best possible” for you! Everything is about you and perfect color palette.

Here are some of the newest colorful wedding trends for 2019!

Unicorn Inspired Dresses

2018 could be called the year of the unicorn, as more people showcased their love of these colorful, mythical creatures in decor schemes and accessories. Now, that trend is carrying over into wedding gowns, with gorgeous pastels, flower applique, and light, airy fabrics.

Brides who prefer the traditional white gown are dressing their bridesmaids in unicorn-inspired apparel, which have become so popular that they’re even incorporating these tones into maternity bridesmaid dresses from Azazie. Seafoam green, pastel pink, and magical mauves are making a strong comeback!

Simple Dresses with Bright Accessories

 

Bridal fashion is no longer all about the dress. Those that prefer a traditional white gown are keeping things streamlined and simple, leaving behind the elaborate mermaid gowns that dominated the last decade. Instead, the focus is being shifted to over-the-top accessories, such as eye-catching fascinators and chunky collar-style necklaces.

Much of this shift to simplicity comes from the minimalist approach to weddings, with more couples focusing on growing their wedding honeymoon registry rather than focusing on making back what they spend on the event. In this case, functionality has translated into fashion, and this trend will dominate in 2019.

Metallics

Metallics are making a comeback in the world of fashion, this time venturing onto the bridal attire runway. Keeping with the trend of simpler wedding gowns, free from embellishments, brides are opting for an entirely metallic dress in various shades of gold and silver. Others are going for an overall shimmery look by opting for a white dress with subtle white metallic elements.

These dresses are particularly dazzling in outdoor weddings on a sunny day and add an unforgettable romantic vibe as they sparkle in candlelight at dinner. More colorful metallic options have yet to hit the runway, but it’s expected that various tones of pale blues and blush will become a trend by the end of the year.

Colourful Confetti and Smoke Bombs

Apart from bridal fashion, decor is still trending toward a more minimalist, subtle approach. However, brides and grooms are creating colourful memories to signal the end of their ceremony. One notable trend is colourful smoke bombs at outdoor ceremonies. These devices release a puff of colour that can be coordinated with the decor.

For those couples looking for a lighthearted, fun approach, colourful confetti is a great option for guests to celebrate the union of the happy couple. Multi-coloured tissue paper is a popular choice, as it breaks down easily without causing harm to surrounding wildlife.

Adding elements of colour allows couples to make the day their own and results in some incredible photo opportunities, creating a beautiful start to the rest of their lives.

Engagement Cam – Capturing That Special Moment Forever

Once upon a time, the only way to share a moment was to try to tell someone about it, to carefully preserve all those special details in your mind in order to share it with loved ones, friends and later generations. But we now live in times when not only do we want to share with our nearest and dearest, but we also love to share the details of our lives on our social media, on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. And when those details happen to also be the most incredible moments of our lives, we want to share them even more.

Celebrities and every day folk alike share images of their weddings, their children and the events that make life so special. Birth announcements come with specially staged images (I’m thinking of you Beyonce), whilst gender reveal videos featuring balloons filled with coloured paper warm the heart. And now, a new technology, Engagement Cam, will help you share that special moment of ‘Will you marry me?’

Engagement Cam is a brilliant innovation, a tiny camera concealed in a wedding ring box, that captures the moment of proposal for posterity. It records the proposal and the instant reactions so that you can share these with your loved ones, and, maybe one day, your own children. And of course, you can also share the moment on your social media if you so wish.

The engagement cam’s hidden camera can record up to 15 minutes of footage at just the touch of a button – it is non intrusive and will not spoil the romance of the proposal, it will merely capture it. It has an inbuilt microphone to pick up the responses, and you do not have to worry about the battery running out – fully charged it will last for one hour.  You can then download the footage to your computer, either to view and save, or to share.

If you want to buy the camera, the current cost is £400, but you can rent the Engagement Cam for two weeks for £200. Two weeks will give you time to plan your proposal, and to choose a different day if something does come up to put it off for a day or two. There is an option to rent for longer if required, and the postage to return the camera and editing of your footage is free.

Your wedding proposal is one of the most glorious, romantic moments in your life, one that you want to preserve and cherish forever. Engagement Cam allows you to do just that, true romance in a small package.
