This afternoon on our pretty pages we have details of the top bridal accessories trends for the year ahead, courtesy of our guest writer, the lovely Izzy Hicks of media partner Love Our Wedding Magazine.
Izzy says: As big fans of all things shiny, we love keeping our eyes on the latest wedding jewellery and accessory looks here at Love Our Wedding! So today we’re excited to be sharing some the vey best up-and-coming trends for 2017 to help inspire those all-important finishing touches…
A glamorous and bohemian take on the more traditional necklace, shoulder jewellery is perfect for those looking to make a modern statement with their wedding accessories. Pair with an otherwise simple strapless column dress for an effortless boho look. We love the Reina shoulder necklace from BHLDN.
We’re putting this trend down to Instagram! Brides have always been fans of sparkling shoes, in our experience, but for 2017 designers like Badgley Mischka and Harriet Wilde are going for bling-heavy styles that are sure to make a real impact as the bride walks down the aisle.
Crystals in bridal jewellery is nothing new, but more alternative designers are opting for a natural, organic feel to their pieces, for a look that’s part Frozen, part Game of Thrones. Quartz-style crystals make the perfect statement tiara or a more dramatic necklace.
Just because you’ve chosen not to wear heels, it doesn’t mean that you’re doomed to boring flats! Luckily, there are plenty of quirky yet comfy designs around this season, from Kate Spade’s glittering collaboration with Keds to Charlotte Olympia’s uber-cute cat-inspired slippers, which even come complete with nude hold-ups trimmed with blue lace.
Whether they’re on your shoes, your veil or your jewellery, stars are rising in popularity when it comes to bridal accessories. Tilly Thomas Lux’s new Celestial headpiece and jewellery collection is based on beautiful star motifs, and we’re loving the glitter star veils in the latest Rock n Roll Bride collection for Crown and Glory.
With rose gold fast becoming the chic bride’s ring material of choice, it’s no surprise that jewellery designers are including more of this pretty metal in their 2017 collections. The fab thing about rose gold is that it suits most skin tones, and instantly updates a classic jewellery set into something a touch more modern.
For the ultimate personal touch to your bridal outfit, why not opt for a customised veil? Whether you choose a fun tongue-in-cheek slogan, your new married name, or a delicate monogram design, plenty of wedding boutiques and designers, including the fabulous Daisy Sheldon, are now offering this on-trend option.
