Are the Sixties Trending for Weddings?
Have you been watching the interiors and fashion industries to see what is coming next for our weddings? After a run of the very popular Seventies Boho style, there is a change in the air as we come out the other side of this pandemic.
Weddings will be smaller with a lot more focus on celebrating, we can’t wait for party time to start again! Let’s take a look at wedding styles as we move from the popular softly Seventies styled romantic weddings to full on Let’s Party like no Tomorrow.
Who can blame any of us!
Some of these predictions will be surprising.
Make up Trends for Weddings
Full on eye make up. We all love a perfect wing, with everyone wearing masks and the only part of your face showing is your eyes, much more drama now is being created with eye makeup.
Lash extensions and defined eyebrows are even more popular with more focus on the eyes. Think back to the days of Mary Quant. Note the dark smouldering smoky eyes, the eyeliner, plenty of lashes and mascara with more emphasis on the eyes combined with paler lips.
Hair Trends for 2021 Weddings
Hair styles are changing too. If you haven’t had your hair cut into a short bob, after the lockdowns, then a classic ponytail is all the rage. Hair styles are becoming sleeker with more definition and half up, half down will be popular.
Bouncy blowouts, lots of volume, think Brigitte Bardou and Twiggy.
Hair tied up with a simple bow will be a trend after the current scrunchies. Try a pretty headband for shorter styles. Ponytails are back into fashion recently with stars such as Ariana Grand and Kim Karshadian all rocking this trend.
Wedding Dress Styles
As we embrace smaller weddings the dresses will be different, more fun, less formal and certainly dresses you can party in. Throwback to the mini and short skirts are trending and two piece wedding dresses. Veils will be shorter too, think more city hall wedding style.
Wedding bouquet trends for 2021 and 2022
Gone are the large voluptuous sprawling wedding bouquets reminiscent of the Forties and Boho trends, we are now seeing smaller compact bouquets making a comeback that work perfectly the clean simplistic lines of the Sixties style. Both Kate and Meghan started this trend using gorgeous smaller florals including Lily of the Valley.
I definitely see the Boho vibe losing popularity in the next two years being replaced with a let’s party like no tomorrow, the swinging sixties making a comeback.
Maybe it is time to start practising those twist dance moves!
