Fascinators for Weddings
The tradition for Ladies to wear head accessories at weddings has been long standing.
The advent of fascinators to be worn at weddings has grown in popularity during the last twenty five years. They are now worn by brides, by the mothers of the bride and bridegroom and by wedding guests.
It always helps to cement new customs when high profile celebrities and members of the Royal Family set the trend by wearing fascinators.
Victoria Beckham confirmed the fascinator had arrived by wearing one when accompanying David to Buckingham Palace in 2003 to receive his OBE.
Camilla converted any doubters by donning one at her marriage to Prince Charles in 2005.
Civil Weddings outnumber weddings held in Church and with the increase in venues granted the licence to hold weddings this trend is set to continue.
If the entire wedding ceremony, meal, speeches, photographs et al are held at one venue it makes sense for ladies to wear a comfortable fascinator to adorn their hair.
Fascinators lend themselves to being worn all day long, indeed many comment that they are not even aware they have them on.
Mothers of the bride or bridegroom will often wear a special fascinator to set off their fabulous outfit. L J Designs have created fascinators to go with many of the leading ladies clothes brands including Ann Balon, Cattiva, Condici, Coterie, Frank Usher, Gina Bacconi, John Charles, Joseph Ribkoff, Linea Raffaelli, Paddy Campbell, Paule Vasseur, Presen, Ian Stuart, Tom Bowker and Veni Infantino.
Anyone who has been fortunate enough to attend a wedding, be it Civil or Church will have noticed the increased popularity of fascinators, this trend is the same for major horse race meetings such as Ascot and other major functions as borne out by Henley Royal Regatta.
LJ Designs fascinators are individually designed
and hand crafted by a small and dedicated team that can be made in any colour you wish to perfectly match your wedding outfit.
