I said ‘yes’!  And so did they !

Now its time to style your girls !


Brides are becoming more generous when it comes to offering choices of gown style to their bridesmaids. The transition in choice of colour through Winter to Spring is also more casual; we’re seeing a lot more added touch of excitement too !

The old-vintage is modernised from the softness of dusty blue tones with a fired up deep Sangria or subdued Fuchsia . This new palette is coupled with a soft Lavender, Mulberry purple and glistening Whites and Silver. The Navy Peony is iced over with a silvered light blue; overall an exciting palette neutralised by shimmer highlights lighting up our Australian wedded aisles.

Some may call it ‘Navy’ as seen to the right in Jasmines stunning Belsoie Collection or it may be likened to Sorella Vita’s or Mori Lees’s lighter ‘Sapphire’. Jenny Packham calls it ‘Sofia Blue’ and Jenny Yoo goes deeper with her ‘Evening Blue’.
Whichever your chosen go to in blue; we think these Pantone shades look amazing !

And this mix of colours ! See below for styling ideas with Navy, Fuchsia, Sangria and Silvers !

We’re trending some favourites this Spring that our lovely brides have coupled with their Blue maids!

Dusty Rose

Its nearly Winter which means most brides are in full bloom in deciding on their final colours for their early Spring wedding. We’re trending our accessories with what we spy are this years’ Spring colour trends to hit our Australian shores.
That’s right; watching American and UK designers guide the Northern hemisphere into wedding bloom through Spring/ Summer 19; we now get our chance to mix it up a little in preparation of our Winters’ end.
Australian brides love to take a little from Autumn collections & deeper tones from Winter and blend their way through to the warmer Spring which means we have a vast colour palette to work with.
Our styling here at F&A will help you along with which accessories will work best with a variety of colour sets; we’ll use Adobe colour swatches in each release.

We’re starting with our favourite Rose tones xx

We start with the delicate of all; Rose tones. You may refer to it as Jadores’ Antique Pink, Jenny Yoo’s Cinnamon Rose, Hayley Paige super soft Dusty Rose, Vera Wangs Chianti or Mori Lee’s Desert Rose to her uplifting and brighter Rosewood.
Is it a reminiscent take of our old favourite Rose Quartz? Which continues recently to be a re-ignited favourite with metallic flows; whichever the case may be; we just love it.

Which colours style well with Rose tones this Spring 2019? Our vision is deep vintage greens, pale platinum with a pinch of mint, slate and our much loved Spanish Olive.

See Pantone swatches below.

So soft and so sweet Dusty Rose also reflects elegantly against cashmere and the lightness of sage and deep greens of our floral choices; the cake; we’re in heaven !

Its no wonder current brides are holding onto the innocence of Rose.

Below are some ideas for your girls to look their best on your special day. Coupling either gold, bronze or silver tones will be your personal choice.
