Simple and Modern Bridal Accessories
Full of thoughtful, reserved jewelry and other accoutrements, these pieces are like a deep, soothing sigh.
There are so many different types of brides, each with different wishes for their wedding day. Some brides want to be dramatic and sparkly and a princess for a day. And others just hope to get through the event without tripping down the aisle or snagging their bracelet on their gown. If you are the latter, or just a bride who prefers really simple accessories, this round-up is for you.
Above, this gorgeous low chignon is all about the thin brass wire with mother of pearl beads woven through the bun. It’s elegant and classic and doesn’t overwhelm its less structured style. Similarly, these sweet, petite gold leaf hair pins (below) tuck nicely into a boho braid or to pin up those pesky in-between bangs.
If you want a more modern, sleek updo, use a thin jeweled headband like the ones below. Particularly if the rest of your accessories are minimal, this is a really clean look with just the right amount of wedding day formality.
You’ve always worn your long waves down, and you want to look like yourself on your wedding day. But you also want a little something to make your signature look special. Clip in a small barrette and you are good to go for your walk down the aisle.
You don’t want to go without earrings, but you also don’t want to wear those chandelier earrings that could double as door knockers. For a strapless dress, try wearing something in a small drop or hoop style, such as the miniscule chain and vermeil disc pair above. If you are wearing a dress with a high collar or unusual neckline, remember that studs go with anything. This sweet pair of copper hearts (below) will be in your jewelry rotation well after you return from your honeymoon.
March to the beat of your own drum? Save the sparkly necklaces and bracelets for someone else and wear your glitter on your shoes. These adorable gold hearts (below) liven up a pair of blush flats and will make your guests smile.
Super sleek dress? A jeweled or beaded sash might not look just right. Try this angular gold bow belt instead. Later, you can pair it with cashmere tunics or a gray shift at the office.
I am absolutely in love with this pointed v necklace. It’s stunning in its simplicity. It would complement deep scoop neck wedding dresses, or those that are strapless with a simple neckline.
