How to accessorise your perfect beach wedding!

13 June 2014

With summer in the air, it's got us looking at popular themes for weddings outdoors,since it's becoming increasingly popular to have part of your wedding out in the open, whether it's near a lake, or in a forest. Following on from our previous glance at a secret garden wedding, we take a coastal route, looking at which accessories would suit a beautiful beach themed wedding:

Richard designs- TR1718A Hair jewellery, Bride & Groom chair decorations, Richard Designs P680 Hair Jewellery & C431A single tier veil , Richard Designs- TR1690A headdress & veil ,Richard Designs- C447C two tier veil, Beach wedding, Compass image, Message in a bottle, Richard Designs- F206 flower headdress, Richard Designs- TR1831A Crystal drop comb, Richard Designs- TR1814A Silver upright tiara, Richard Designs- TF2 birdcage face veil, Richard Designs- P651E pearl drop earrings, Richard Designs- C436A single tier flower scatter veil, Rings in shell, Richard Designs- TR1689A Lace circlet & Veil.

Nautical influences can currently be seen within fashion and home wares, so why not bring the beach look to your special day! You can easily find ways to bring the outdoors in, with quirky table accessories and flowers. Incorporating shells, tumblers and mismatched items to create a sea scene will have guests remembering the day for years to come.

Having a coherent theme throughout helps make the day more memorable for you and your guests, so don't forget about the accessories! Our hair jewellery TR1718A would work well with the beach theme, it looks great with tousled hair and has the right amount of sparkle with a floral touch. Alternatively our silver hair jewellery, P680 looks great with this beaded edged single tier veil, C431A, which hangs beautifully around the shoulders.

If you are looking for a veil with lighter detail, our C436A has a delicate scatter of chiffon flowers & silver diamante flowing down the veil. This would look elegant in a longer length on the beach, especially if the dress doesn’t have a long train; to add to the overall bridal look. As it's a single tier it is perfect to just hang at the back of the hair, under or on top of a bun perhaps.

For an outside wedding you don't want the weather to affect how you wear your accessories, you may want to consider what would be easy to wear and still look good! A birdcage veil would stay secure, TF2 would be a good choice, as it works with a variety of hairstyles and adds to that beach theme. Add these crystal and pearl drop earrings, P651E, to complete the look.

Another idea that would be perfect for a relaxed beach ceremony, is our lace circlet and veil, TR1689A. This is so easy to wear and with the veil attached you don't need to remove it after the ceremony, it will hang elegantly for a continuous bridal look for the rest of the day.

To add a hint of glamour to a coastal theme, wear our luxurious beaded headdress and combined veil, TR1690A. This has proved popular, and will look great from day to night, the blusher can be worn over for the ceremony and worn back for the rest of the day. This style looks dramatic across the forehead but can also be worn across the head as a tiara band for a more subtle look.

If your beach theme has strong floral elements throughout, our new delicate two tier veil, C447C, could suit perfectly. It has a neat embroidered edge, with dainty lace flowers and pearls flowing around the veil. This would look wonderful with our floral fascinator, F206, to complete the look. 

The nautical theme can be simple, such as adding small touches like tying rope around chairs or glasses, or having blue for bridesmaids. So for the bridal accessories you may want to add a bit of sparkle with our new upright tiara, TR1814A. It is sure to add a glamorous silver touch, and sparkle all day long, Or if you are wearing your hair on the side and want an unusual bridal comb, see our new style, TR1831A. It has clustered silver leaves and a delicate flower, finished with hanging crystal drops. This could also be used for bridesmaids, as the flowers can be ordered in a range of colours.
