The most popular wedding accessories have taken a big twist over the past year, and they’ve slowly evolved from sharp platinum and gold pieces with crystal clear bling, to vintage inspired boho chic softness. The bridal belts, hair halos, bracelets and combs we are seeing are all elegantly soft and romantically styled. Perfect for adding a touch of romance and femininity to the bride and her bridesmaids.
The Bridal Belt Moment
Embellished bridal belts are having a big moment right now. Adding a touch of styled chic to a simple or plain wedding dress by adding an embellished bridal sash that sits around the bride’s waist like a belt would, is a gorgeous way to add some vintage and boho style to the bridal gown. Embellished with pearls, Swarovski crystals, metallic thread and colored stones, the bridal belt can be as simple or as over-the-top as the bride chooses. The bridal belt moment is allowing brides to choose a simpler wedding gown for a garden or beach wedding and by adding an embellished bridal belt, they’re losing none of that vintage or boho styling.
Bringing Boho Style to Wedding Hair
The most romantic of wedding hair accessories to add a touch of bohemian style to any bride’s look is the latest in stunning boho bridal halos. For the bride who wants to add embellishments to her up do, or a long romantically loose bridal hairstyle, the bridal halo sits firmly as a favorite for brides everywhere right now. Feminine and capturing the spirit of the bohemian and wanderlust bride, a halo of embellished crystals and pearls studded with some fresh flowers adds a romantic touch that can sit over a veil, or be worn instead of a traditional bridal veil.
Vintage Wedding Combs Add Romance
Your grandmother probably wore one, and you certainly have seen vintage photos of elegant brides showcasing an embellished bridal comb in their French roll or bun. Channel the romance of yesteryear with a beautifully adorned wedding comb that brings romance to your wedding hair. Wear with bridal hair up or down, and sit the comb beautifully on the side. You’ll notice the latest styles are hand embellished with pearls, crystals, and rose gold which fits perfectly with the vintage wedding theme.
Muted Wedding Accessories
The muted tones of wedding accessories in blush, pearl, cream, rose gold and ivory suit the latest trends in wedding gowns and wedding themes, such as wanderlust, vintage, country, antique and boho. Elegantly styled and massively embellished with style and romance, the trends to mute the tones but never under-embellish are spot on for right now.
