  • 2022 Wedding Trend Predictions

    It seems like after a year of cancellations and postponing, there might be a bit of a rebellious period when it comes to weddings. This could involve fantastical themes and innovations never seen before, from the use of bold colours to more eccentricity. Couples are more ready to start creating their own rules when it comes to their weddings in 2022. Here are some of next year’s top wedding trends. Bridgerton meets Cottagecore Aesthetics You might have seen this one coming, thanks to the most popular shows on Netflix (Bridgerton, anyone?) but one of 2022’s hottest wedding trends will fuse a dramatic Regency setting with the romance of the cottagecore aesthetic. Everything like historical architecture, baldachin ceilings and grand ballrooms will be in. However, it will have an added twist with elements of cottagecore added into it. It is humble and more laid-back than the Bridgerton aesthetic, so picture sprawling wildflower fields and whimsical decor that gives things a paradisal vibe. Vintage Furniture and Nostalgia After the pandemic-related issues that many brides have had to deal with, many of them don’t want to have that perfectly picturesque wedding they had in mind before we were ordered to stay in our homes. We are seeing an increase in sentimental decor and furniture, which tells us that people are finding more beauty in life’s imperfections. Finding something old is finding new meaning. Using one of a kind thrifted furniture could be a way to celebrate these unusual times and can do so in a way that feels personal and authentic to the couple. Plus, if you have been in the loop with this year’s design trends you will know that vintage furniture and decor have been very popular. And it makes sense. As we look forward to brighter COVID-free days, we also miss the good old days. Having been missing out on making new memories, many couples are instead focusing on their favourite past memories. This can be travel, important dates, events, previous trips where a lot of couples swapped out table numbers for tables labelled with cities that they have been to together. There is much more customization, even when it comes to bridal party gifts and favours. Many couples want to create keepsakes that will remind them of their special day rather than handing out something generic. Garden Venues Indoor-outdoor venues have been on the rise out of necessity because of the pandemic. Think about tents, patios, backyards and barn settings that flow seamlessly from the house to the venue, or into a garden or backyard. These are elegant, secret garden atmospheres and estate venues that are classy. These are now known as inside out weddings. And, it is one of the safest ways to have a gathering of people during the pandemic since there is a lot of open space and air. With these trends, it’s all about putting safety first. If you are looking for a wedding dress to match the 2022 trends, visit Blu Ivory Bridal! We carry an extensive selection of elegant, classy, and sophisticated wedding dresses for all Toronto Brides.

  • Comfortable Materials You Need to Consider Wearing on Your Wedding Day

    Your wedding day should be memorable and fun, but it’s important to remember that the day will be long, so you have to prioritize comfort. This will allow you to enjoy your big day, and you will get to move and dance all night long. It is a must that you are comfortable in every regard, so you have to consider your shoes, your hairdo and the shape of your wedding gown. A tight up-do can ruin your day, as can a pair of uncomfortable shoes, and the wrong materials will certainly prevent you from enjoying your special day. You have to look at the material the gown is made of when shopping for your wedding dress, and the following are comfortable options you can consider: Stretch crepe This is a clean material that is both beautiful and minimal and what’s great is that it looks good on everyone and can be used in different styles of gowns. Crepe is very comfortable, and stretches in the lining will give you plenty of room to eat and dance, so you will not feel limited and will get to make the most out of your day. You’ll get to move around because your dress will not hold you back in any way. Chiffon This material is lightweight and easy to wear, and if you love a romantic theme, this material is ideal. Chiffon is available in a variety of colours, so you will have a ton of options with this flowy material. Chiffon will drape beautifully over the lining to create a slim silhouette, and you will be very happy with this style. Appliqué lace Sheer panels of appliqué lace are very popular not just because of their beautiful appearance, but for their level of comfort as well. These panels can be applied to the bodice, slit or train of the dress and this type of lace will provide you with a look that is very modern. Sheer panels will provide you with a layer of coverage while adding contrast of material, and the use of sheer appliqué lace will also help show off the lovely details of the lace. Organza This material is similar to tulle, but it’s not as stiff, so it’s much more comfortable. It is a sheer fabric that is made from woven silk, so your wedding dress will be lightweight, soft and beautiful, and your gown will move with you, so you can dance and twirl all day long. You can choose a slimmer skirt that has only a few layers of organza as this will feel breezy and effortless or, if you want volume and drama, you can add more layers of organza without worrying about weight. Blu Ivory Bridal can help you find the perfect gown for your special day. We have a beautiful selection of wedding dresses and will help you find one that is both beautiful and comfortable.

  • What You Should Be Looking for When Choosing a Bridal Store

    The right bridal store will accommodate your needs and will help you find your dream gown. Wedding dress shopping is very exciting, and it’s important that you enjoy this experience, so you can’t just walk into any store and must do some research so that you shop at the right boutique. Not every bridal store is the same, and if you’re ready to start shopping for your dress, you need to consider the following: The Type Of Experience You’re After Different bridal stores will offer different types of services, so you have to know what you’re after. The level of service you receive will vary based on their space, selection and staff, so you have to research different boutiques to make sure they can offer you what you want. Some stores place multiple brides in the same area, while others will give you a spacious dressing room all to yourself. Some stores have a personal stylist to help guide you through the boutique, while others will let you browse the racks on your own. You need to know this information in advance so that you feel comfortable when shopping for your dress. Most brides want privacy, so make sure this is being offered. The Number Of Guests They Allow A lot of boutiques will limit the number of guests you can bring with you to your appointment, so make sure you know this number in advance. Some brides want to bring a big group, while others want to bring just their mom or a very close friend, so make sure the store can accommodate this request. The Brands They Carry Every bridal store carries a different selection of gowns by different designers, so you have to determine the type of gown you want. This will allow you to shop at boutiques that can offer you this style, so if there is a specific designer you love, call different salons to see if they carry that brand. You should also check their website to view the different styles and designs they carry because this will give you an idea of the dresses you’ll get to try on during your appointment. Length Of The Appointment Buying your wedding dress is a very big deal, and you should never feel rushed into a decision. You should be able to take your time, so ask about this aspect in advance to determine if the length of their appointments is suitable for your needs. Price Check the bridal store’s price range so that you know whether or not the gowns are within your budget. This will prevent you from wasting your time, and you won’t fall in love with dresses you can’t afford. Blu Ivory can help you find your dream wedding dress, and our staff will do whatever it takes to accommodate all of your requests. We carry a beautiful selection of bridal gowns, so come and visit us today!
