It’s been a while since I had the chance to have a look at pretty things and with the rain pouring [and pouring and pouring] down outside what better way to cheer myself up than searching for those pretty little finishing touches that fill my heart with joy! From elegant heels to delicate garters, sparkling earrings to cute hair accessories sometimes you just need that special something to complete the look.
I’ve basically chosen my top 10 wedding accessories that I believe are just oh so simply pretty. Nothing too outrageously statement, nothing too fashion forward, rather hopefully something that will work alongside many dresses and styles to just add that finishing touch for all those brides searching for that little added extra for their wedding.
ONE Blue/Grey ‘Talle’ Garter by The Wedding Garter Co / TWO Vintage Floral Chandelier Earrings from Liberty In Love / THREE Leila Gold by Emmy London / FOUR Juliet Comb by Debbie Carlisle / FIVE ‘I Do’ Canvas Pouch by Alphabet Bags
The garter is having a resurgence, so if you don’t have one to borrow why not treat yourself to a beautifully feminine one from the recently launched The Wedding Garter Company, this one could also just about be your something blue? Add instant glamour with these beautiful chandelier earrings which work with well with all styles of dresses. The beautiful gold detailed Leila shoe is one I see brides choosing time and time again, classy and comfortable – what more do you want in a shoe? For those who want to add interest to a half-up do but don’t want to go too ‘princess’ then this beautiful Juliet Comb is sophisticated and just the right amount of sparkle. Believe me, you will need somewhere to put your bits and pieces on the day – tissues, lipstick, mints can all be slipped into this super cute peachy ‘I Do’ pouch.
ONE Blush Vintage Rose Belt by Emmy London / TWO Vintage Rose Chandelier Earrings from Liberty in Love / THREE Coco Statement Headband by Britten Weddings / FOUR Retro Betty Bow Veil by Couturemango on Etsy / FIVE Chantilly Lace Shoes by Harriet Wilde
Girls in white dresses with pink satin sashes – yes Maria was right these are a few of my favourite things – this pretty sash is a quick and removable way to add interest to a simple gown. If you fancy flirting with a colour but don’t want to go for a blush dress, and a hint of pink with these beautiful vintage style earrings. Now this ‘Coco’ headband is definitely a style statement. Keep hair in a loose up-do for effortless chic or it would also suit a perfectly coiffed set vintage style. Not going to lie, I’m in love with this Betty veil! It’s creamy tone, the bow and the cute length make this perfect for a city bride. Finally, I know you all like a pair of knockout heels, and these my friends are they. The detail of these ‘Chantilly’ lace shoes with ribbon ties are sexy and sophisticated, I can imagine you’ll want to keep these on into the small hours.
Would love to know what accessories you are teaming with your bridal look. To veil or not to veil? Knockout chandelier earrings perhaps just for the evening? Skyscraping heels to twirl in or a simple flower in your hair? There are just so many options out there it’s almost impossible to choose but hopefully this helps inspire for those on the accessories hunt!
