The Summer of Love (and Wedding Dresses)

Kate Moss' wedding dress - John Galliano

It's well and truly wedding season and in a matter of weeks we've seen amazing celebrity and royal weddings from some of the most influential names in the fashion industry; including the new sell-out-sensation Kate Middleton in Sarah Burton for Mcqueen, THE trend-starter supermodel Kate Moss in John Galliano, vintage darling Lily Allen in Delphine Manivet and the willowy model Abbey Clancy in Giles Deacon.

These brides will shape the wedding industry for years to come, as women tear pages from their copies of Grazia (who needs to buy wedding mags when there's a different celeb wedding each week in the fashion mags) and start demandimg elegant, vintage inspired dresses, modest sleeves, traditional ivory shades, delicate lace, undone, relaxed hair styles and make up, and more traditional, country style weddings.

Having worked in the wedding dress industry for over 6 years when I was a student (I have some GREAT bridezilla stories), I like to think I know a few things about THE dress (I can nearly always guess what wedding dress you'll end up buying). This many key fashion influencer and their hugely publicised weddings will have a huge impact on the industry and spawn 100s of copycat styles and see a move towards more traditional, romantic dresses and weddings.

I know we don't need much of an excuse to look at all this gorgeous couture - we all love looking at pretty dresses, but mark my words, these wedding dress styles will be dominating weddings of late 2011 and for many years to come!
