English Romance

Move over, Kate Middleton -- Lady Mary's wedding (and dress!) in Downton Abbey's third season will have a huge impact on weddings over the next year.

Fashion: We'll see lots of long, billowy sleeves and tons of lace backs with illusion necklines all over the bridal salons this next year. Those long sleeves and lace will be accompanied by long, traditional veils, cloche veils and even pretty braided headbands. Within this trend, we're also seeing some unique uses of sheer elements in gowns.

Tablescapes: Think: English-flower-garden-themed centerpieces, low and lush displays that are sophisticated and carefully arranged. Gold candelabras and lots of ornate charger plates and overlay linens will finish the look.

Food and cocktails: For dinner, traditional main courses and meats like ham, Cornish game hen and even quail are all favorites for the next year. On the drinks menu: gin cocktails and specialty liqueurs like elderflower, served up in pretty cut-crystal glassware.
