How to Make the Most of Bridesmaid Accessories
We understand that when you have the stress of planning a wedding, choosing bridesmaid accessories can become more of a chore than a pleasure. Sometimes it is tempting to settle for the easy option when choosing accessories for your bridesmaids.
However bridesmaids can complement and complete your bridal look, and it is worth spending a little bit of time to carefully choose their accessories.
There is an array of products on the bridal wear market for bridesmaids, but you should not be daunted or afraid to dress your bridesmaids in styles that stand out or incorporate their individual personalities. No one will outshine you on your wedding day, as no one can outshine a bride!
Remember, your bridesmaids do not have to all match exactly. Instead keep the colours and overall style the same and follow our guidelines below:
For younger bridesmaids and flower girls: Try headbands with less crystal and more flowers. Not only do they look the part, headbands are easier for young girls to wear. If you fall in love with a larger headpiece, this can be scaled down to fit a younger girl.
For older bridesmaids and maid of honour: Try a more sophisticated look with crystal detail. Older bridesmaids can look fantastic with decoration on combs, or on side sprays.
On trend: Silver crystals mixed with your colour choices, alternatives to traditional tiara shapes such as side sprays and hair jewellery. Current colour trends for bridesmaids are royal blue, deep purple, sunshine topaz, and greens such as sage and emerald are really on trend this season.
Don’t forget! If your bridesmaids are wearing colours that are difficult to match, simple silver crystal always looks lovely.
Often in today’s weddings, bridesmaids’ outfits do not match each other exactly in their style and shape, but are made from the same fabrics and colours. However, accessories can still be matched from bridesmaid to bridesmaid or can follow a similar theme to the dresses. Choose, for example, a coloured crystal that matches the dress colour and work this into a selection of different headpieces and jewellery to complement each bridesmaid’s hair and individual style.
It is traditional to give a gift to each attendant at the wedding, and jewellery to complement the bridesmaids’ outfits is a lovely way to say thank you. Our Preciosa crystal jewellery is made from the highest quality Czech crystal and Rhodium plated silver and is the perfect keepsake for years to come.
Most of our bridal accessories can also be worn for Proms. Our accessories provide a sophisticated look, and are available in a wide selection of colours that will complement prom wear perfectly.
