Fashion trends in wedding decor 2016-2018 and comments from the the Fashion Astrology point of view
On March 21 the annual private show trends Lid's Inspiration Party took place. This year it was held in the World Trade Center and brought together representatives of the leading wedding-agencies, photographers, organizers and managers. As Lydia Simonova stressed, «this year we will introduce a completely new vision of modern fashion wedding and we believe that people are ready for such changes.» As you know, summer weddings are starting to prepare for the spring. Therefore it is so important to advance abreast of all the latest trends and new trends in the fashion world. According to the organizers of the event, 2016 promises to be an incredible concept and will bring many unexpected solutions.
In the three halls of the congress hall «Mercury» team of Lid's Eventhouse created the scenery for all the major areas of the festive celebrations: the zone of pre-wedding photo shoot, welcome, ceremony area, honeymooners desk and guest table. For the third consecutive year, Lydia Simonova and her team inspires the world of wedding fashion with their ideas. Artists usually are doing, without thinking, where inspiration comes. And our task is to present the most promising fashion trends and give comments from the perspective of Fashion Astrology. Thus, we consider them in order.
Inspired by fashion in copper and bronze shades, meeting area has become an absolute revelation, far from the usual wedding reception as the bright and lavish celebrations. Hall turned into a maze of copper pipes, architectural forms that extend the boundaries of the premises and gived a sense of the magnitude of the event. At the same time a warm copper sheen creates a comfortable atmosphere for all present.
In terms of Fashion Astrology, copper is a symbol of the Libra sign and its ruler, Venus. These characters will be at the height of fashion at a time when the main significator fashion tastes - Jupiter - will be in Libra - from September 2016 till October 2016.
Fire and Air
In the design of the ceremony white zone has become a major, but here the company Lid's Eventhouse remained true to his style: a single flower, a live or artificial, was not in the room. But the present fusion of modern technologies, large-scale dummy elements and a terrific job with the light created a bold and vibrant design. White amphitheater surrounding the central area, which is symbolized by a moving power of fire and lightness of air. Multimedia screens contrast helped change the mood of the evening.
Perhaps this is the eternal theme from the point of view of cosmic change. In 2016-2017 noticeable social configuration of the planets will develop on the sky, that affects fire and air signs (Uranus in Aries in opposition to Jupiter in Libra). It does not slow down the impact on the various kinds of interior design, including, and festive decor.
Illusion and Geometry
Lydia Simonova proposed a new format for the pre-wedding photo shoot in which no pastel shades or traditional candles or flowers abundance. The main topic of this type of decoration has become an optical illusion. Black and white spiral, creating the scope and depth of the space, and the torque horse appeared before the audience in a fuchsia color, colored stripes. Trend of the season is declared graphic quality and geometry, and the absurdity of the illusory nature of the space.
This fashion trend has manifested itself in the clothing and textile patterns. We called it «Living crystals». It appeared in 2015 under the influence of powerful astrological aspects in Earth Elements (Pluto in Capricorn in trine to Jupiter in Virgo).
Tropical therme this season presents everywhere: in clothes and jewelry. Tropical greenery, vibrant colors, exotic plants isa great option to create an atmosphere of light summer holiday. A sham figures of giraffes and flamingos hit his sculptural.
The nature of the origin of this trend don’t has clear astrological guidance. Most likely, we are committed to it by contrast to what we lack. For example, my Spanish colleague astrologers as an illustration to the main page of the selected photos misty dawns, rainy landscapes, just because in Spain is almost always the sun shines brightly, but we practically don’t sse it. In any case, this kind of design will choose by cheerful nature, and wedding decorator should always be a great psychologist and be able to see these traits in the future newlyweds.
Gold, devoid of kitsch
Guest table continued the theme of the tropics, but here decorators came to the style on the other hand, focusing on the combination of gold and black. This can be traced throughout the design of the lines and purity of the conceptual elements of decor. We can say that serving quite ascetic and simple. But this is only apparent simplicity, because of the lack of textile and abundance of floral arrangements are carefully selected materials and textures that create the wow-effect.
From the point of view of Fashion Astrology it is a very promising trend that will show itself fully only in a couple of years. It is associated with the symbolism of the sign of Scorpio. Jupiter will be in the sign of Scorpio from October 2017 to November 2018. On peculiarities of the astrological period now known designers who bought the forecast for the next few years. The profound transformation of the usual things, alchemy, complex and multidimensional color texture are visuals of this period and this trend.
The living and nonliving
Here it is connected to the latest European trends: fashion on the contrast of living and nonliving. In the design of the table is created contrast gentle live floristry and cold solids. The leading role played by the elegance and brevity forms, of course, again a little graphic illusion in the background.
As for personally me, I always liked the contrasts in the individual style and the surrounding things. At a meeting with Preston Bailey in April 2014, I asked a well-known decorator question about the use of non-traditional elements in the wedding decor, which was met with hostility. «No, never, under any circumstances, for any customer.» As we know, Preston Bailey operates in line with the traditional aesthetics, using tons of luxurious fresh flowers and golden garlands. Perhaps, now, under other stars, his answer would have been different. Time on Earth is changing its quality, since it is a direct reflection of the processes taking place in the cosmos.
These fashion trends will remain relevant in the period 2016-2018.
