In recent years, an increasing number of couples tying the knot have chosen to include one or more unusual elements in their wedding proceedings in their drive to be unique. The continuing popularity of vintage weddings, where everything - from the dress and the decorations, to the crockery and the transport - is inspired by the past, bears witness to this.
In recent years there has been a rise in short wedding dresses on bridal catwalks. You might have noticed them in magazines, on royals such as the new princess of Luxembourg, and you might also have attended a friend's wedding where she opted for a short wedding dress. This has led some to believe that it is a new 'trend'.
The arrival of the wedding dress at the end of a haute couture show is a moment of grace. The most anticipated look of the show, it provides a breathtakingly beautiful finale to each designer's presentation. With delicate lace detailing, lavish sequin embellishment and trains that seemed to stretch for miles.
