Accessories for the Modern Bride
The wedding dress is usually the centre of attention at any wedding, but its look can be enhanced by a diverse range of carefully chosen accessories for the modern bride. One of the many services offered by The Boutique is a selection of wedding dress adornments, designed to spark a bride’s imagination and creativity. When it comes to embellishing their wedding dresses, brides can choose a timeless look or follow popular, contemporary trends.
One of the most prominent bridal trends is the minimalist look, with fashion conscious brides choosing dropped waist dresses which offer a nod to the Roaring Twenties. This style can be pared down even further, or the glamour turned up, through the choice of jewellery. Statement necklaces or delicate pearl drop earrings are elegant ways to enhance a minimalist silhouette.
For the more adventurous bride dressed in billowing folds of silk, bold chandelier earrings matching her eye colour are a perfect choice. Wearing unique, glittering necklaces in the shape of bows, striking bracelets in the colours of sunset hues, or floral adornments all add a modern feel to any type of wedding dress.
Jewellery is not the only essential bridal accessory. Dreamy lace and glamorous beads are beautiful additions to any style of wedding dress. Romantic lace appliqué is not only graceful but versatile too, and can be sewn onto the bodice, waist or even onto the flowing skirts of traditional dresses. Sewing small amounts of pearl or crystal beads onto a wedding dress can transform it from a plain appearance into a shimmering spectacle.
Footwear is another way to accessorise a wedding dress. Many brides wear shoes hidden by long swathes of hemline which is a pity as these can magically turn basic bridal attire into a spectacular vision. Luckily, short wedding dresses are a fashion trend this year. Wedding shoes are no longer the Cinderella of the bridal ensemble but the star attraction. Stilettos in vibrant colours like ruby red or emerald green, and delicate ballet slippers in shiny satin or luxurious velvet, compete for attention alongside chic, knee length dresses.
Surprisingly, dramatic opera gloves are the most coveted of all the new bridal accessories. These long gloves are another homage to the Roaring Twenties, and a stylish and fun way to adorn a wedding dress. Kate Middleton made headlines at this year’s BAFTAS by wearing long, black opera gloves with a white, Grecian dress. Brides can follow this unusual trend by choosing black mesh gloves that dramatically contrast with soft, alabaster dresses. White gloves too are an excellent choice, and can be embellished with feathers, giving any wedding dress a feel of grown up elegance.
