One of my favorite trends that I’ve been seeing take off in weddings is the trend towards doing something different when it comes to your hair and veil. Birdcage veils have really taken off, but I also like the trend of finding beautiful hair jewelry and going without the veil entirely.

Veils are beautiful, but they can also be a pain, in more ways than one! They seem to often be the main thing (next to her high heels, if she is wearing them) that the bride is ready to get rid of after the wedding.

Free-flowing locks are a very good look for some brides, especially those who are not used to doing elaborate things with their hair. It’s a natural, unaffected look that goes well with a lot of weddings these days. An additional plus is that there are so many gorgeous creations available to decorate your hair! From flowers, to feathers, to rhinestones … there’s something for every look and style. I have seen an increase in the number of vendors offering this type of jewelry at bridal shows, and of course you can find nearly everything you ever dreamed of (and many things you never imagined) on Etsy.

Is this a good look for you? Would you be more comfortable with your hair loose on your wedding day?

Maybe it’s because I’m a photographer, but it seems I really notice color trends in weddings.

Thankfully, we seem to be long beyond the days of pastel peach and mint green. I love the rich, luxurious colors that have characterized weddings the last few years. Every year, a couple of colors seem to catch on, and this year at the bridal fair I saw some of my absolute favorite colors appearing over and over again.

For today’s post, I’ll focus on one: peacock blue.

Peacock hues are nothing new to weddings, and I’ve seen a lot of peacock feathers the last couple of years, but this year it seemed almost half the booths featured some variation on this. Whether it was a touch of peacock blue in a bouquet, lovely teal glassware and china, or actual peacock feathers, variations on this color were popping up everywhere.

This rich hue blends well with a variety of other colors, as you can see from some of the examples above. Other peacock color appearances: Tanarah Luxe Floral and Event Styling featured touches of blue among predominantly warm colors (orange, cream, pink and gold). I also saw lots of rich blue fondant on cakes, and Designs on the Move’s booth was feathered with soft fabric and lit with blue light. Day Lily’s booth featured blue and orange pillows on a cream-colored sofa.
