You are in for a major treat today! Our friends from Bridal Style Inc. are talking about trends in wedding accessories on the blog today. From bridal belts to hair pieces, here’s everything you need to know when it comes to choosing the perfect wedding accessories for your big day.
In the past few years, bridal accessories have evolved to a must-have collection of choices for every bride. No longer simply a blue garter and a veil in the length that best suits your wedding gown, the humble wedding accessory becomes part of the overall theme of the day and enhances the look of the bride and her bridesmaids. Beautiful metallic hair combs and embellished wedding gown sashes can make a simple look stunning.
Brides have the choice of over-the-top metallic bling or a more muted boho feminine soft look. Soft romantic vintage accessories in pastel tones or a contemporary country look with soft undertones and a pop of color to add personality and charm. The accessories of now are muted and soft, the metals are rose gold and antique silver, and the embellishments are pearl, cream and neutral in hue. The softly romantic look is perfect for adding a touch of romance and femininity to the bride and her bridesmaids.
Bridal Belts Transform Simple Wedding Gowns
Many brides are using the transformative bridal belt as the hero wedding accessory for their wedding style. An embellished wedding belt allows brides to choose a simple wedding dress and add touches of style to make their wedding dress completely theirs without the cost of a couturier. Perfect for a boho, beach or garden wedding, brides the sash sits around the bride’s waist like a belt would, adorned with pearls, Swarovski crystals, metallic thread and colored stones – in gorgeous shapes, colors and designs that add personality and chic style instantly. As simple or as over the top as the bride dares, brides have the choice of an incredible array of jewels, beads, pearls, threads and sashes to add a complete mix of their own personality to a plain wedding dress. This is a look that is completely now, and is one of our favorites with great reason.
Boho Chic Wedding Hair Accessories
Transforming bridal hair into a romantic look, the latest wedding hair accessories are beautifully styled as stunning boho bridal halos embellished to match a bridal belt and add more of a feminine look to bridal hair. Romantic waves that cascade down a bride’s back are the firm choice for wedding hair, and add to this halos embellished with crystals and pearls studded with some fresh flowers. Romance is alive in well with this wanderlust and boho chic feminine wedding accessory choice.
Vintage Styled Wedding Combs Add Vintage Chic
Antique and vintage styled brides are choosing to add a little of yesteryear to their wedding accessories with a vintage styled wedding comb. Perfectly sitting in a romantic cascading long haired look to add vintage style to the side of the bride’s hair, or to add antique charm to an up-do like a classic French roll or bun, a wedding comb is an easy way to bring vintage romance to a bride’s wedding look. Just like the combs of the 19th century, antique look hand embellished combs now come with pearls, crystals and rose gold. They are perfectly adorned and styled for an antique or vintage wedding theme. Brides are now spoilt for choice when it comes to feminine wedding accessories. Choosing the perfect adornment is a pleasure, and once you have your wedding gown and wedding theme selected, the pieces you choose to accessorize the look will form an important part of your wedding shopping.
Handmade and embellished wedding accessories will stay with you forever, and can not only be reworn for important occasions in your life, but they can also be handed down to your daughter to wear on her wedding day. No matter if you’re having a boho, wanderlust, antique, or vintage theme for your wedding, our best advice is to choose muted tones like blush, pearl, cream, rose gold and ivory and then overtones that are encrusted as much as your heart desires in your wedding accessories to get the look that suits you perfectly, and runs right on trend as feminine and beautiful for your wedding day.
