Putting a ring on it? The soaring, sugary tiers of cupcakes that, for several years, had deposed the formal wedding cake have finally been toppled themselves. In their place has risen equally lofty, decidedly yeastier dessert towers composed of … doughnuts. Available in flavours such as Blueberry Balsamic and Root Beer Float.
Riding the pony: Boho chic hit its peak last year, but no-fuss is still appealing. For a refreshingly low-maintenance alternative to updos impaled with a pound of bobbypins, long-haired brides have another, increasingly popular option: the ever-flattering (and versatile) ponytail. Worn high or low, ponies can just as easily skew sleek – with a pompadour in the front, for instance – as deconstructed, says Globe Style beauty expert Bahar Niramwalla. Makeup right now is equally uncontrived: A no-makeup look, featuring flawless skin and minimal colour on lips, eyes and cheeks, means that, along with the pony, a bride won’t have to worry about a fallen ’do or continuous lipstick reapplication, no matter how late the dancing goes on.
