A post from WGSN shows a variety of Pintrest accounts which act as sources of inspiration, it is clear that bridal trends do not change as fast as everyday fashion, therefore even though this information is from 2013, it can be noted as reliable. These accounts, though diverse in their looks and feels, all have common themes of femininity, pastels, florals, sheer fabrics, and romanticism. They evoke feelings of serenity, natural beauty and hints of vintage throwbacks or modern twists. Prevailing colour themes throughout remain light and muted, shades of white/pale blue/rose/grey, and green to give account to the flowers and bouquets and give an organic feel.
- Pastel colour schemes are common with the latest bridalwear update from WGSN.
GRACE Colour Scheme
Emotions to reflect:

- Grown-up romantic
Senses to reflect:
Botanical plants and green hues will work their way into the VM accessory aesthetic to give an organic touch and incorporate sense of freshness.
From this moodboard the colour palette I have chosen for the new bridal wear range comprises of muted navy, pale pink, stone taupe and metallic gold. This represents the femininity, elegance and modern simplicity of the GRACE bridal persona.
The key colours to be used are Pantone 2767 U, Pantone 9285 U, Pantone 406 CP and Pantone 10129 C, accented with white and black to give the colour scheme depth and contrast.
