Bridal Accessories and Jewelry
Although the dress is by far the focal point of your Bridal look, choosing the right accessories should also be a top priority. The right accessories can compliment and accentuate a gown to complete your look. Brides should choose jewelry that suit their personal style, it can be something new, or an heirloom piece from the family, or both. Accessories should fit in with your wedding’s theme, and fit the mood of the venue, whether it be formal or casual. Here are a few ideas that every bride can draw inspiration from.
Timeless accessories: by far the most popular option for brides, these pieces can be worn with any style dress, in any venue, with any theme. Classic bridal jewelry is all about simplicity, timeless style that has been used for decades, and isn’t a staple of any particular generation. These pieces are always in style, and can easily become an heirloom. Pearls are an iconic example of this, and a common choice for brides with any sense of style, whether it’s a necklace, a bracelet, or earrings. Diamond earrings, bracelets or necklaces are also another classic example. When going for a timeless look, choose a single, focal piece, such as a necklace, to maintain the appearance effortless, luxurious simplicity. These accessories are great for chic weddings, vintage weddings, or any modern or traditional wedding theme.
Vintage accessories: vintage and retro details are at the peak of popularity in the wedding world right now. Whether they are true antiques or retro inspired, nothing gives character to your wedding like vintage staple pieces. The 20s, 40s and 50s are the most popular decades in which to draw inspiration. The most common bridal accessories can include rhinestone brooches, combs, headbands and other hairpieces. Beyond jewelry, you can also go with a lace shrug or bolero, a faux fur wrap, or other garments to compliment your dress. Building a vintage look gives you a unique and characteristic sense of style, that should reflect the overall feel of your wedding. Vintage weddings are often casual and relaxed, while still maintaining the level of glamour you want to exude.
