Hello readers! It’s great to be blogging again for Love My Dress® and especially so since Annabel launched her absolutely beautiful new blog on Monday! Here at What Peggy Did Next, HQ, we love nothing better than hunting down the next big thing, to pass the latest wedding decor and bridal trends on to our brides and grooms-to-be.
One such trend we’re tipping for the top this summer is ‘fiesta’.
Perfect for couples after a colourful, fun-filled day with their family, Fiesta is a relaxed, Southern California-inspired style that uses exotic florals and succulents in bright, bold colours.
With a little nod towards Mexico and Spain, this perfect high-summer theme uses décor that is light-hearted and focused on fun with a touch of kitsch – think piñatas and maracas for props!
The Fiesta bridal look is laid-back and ready to celebrate and for a touch of ‘Spanish Senorita’, designers such as Claire Pettibone (The Three Graces and Chantilly Wedding Cake are just divine), Halfpenny London, Charlie Brear and Inbal Dror provide the perfect combination of classic lace and bohemian layers.

Take a tip from my previous post and add a dash of Latin-inspired primary colour to you look via shoes, jewellery or a flower crown. We love the ‘Lisa’ and ‘Emma’ floral headpieces by Crown and Glory!
