Bride’s Perspective: Bridal Accessory Ideas
Our blogger bride-to-be Elise from WTFab is back today to share the details on the bridal accessories she chose to wear down the aisle. Read on for one of a kind inspiration and the perfect way to add personal style to your wedding look.
Being an accessories girl, I was really looking forward to finding the perfect pieces to wear on my wedding day and complete my bridal look! It took a fair bit of trial and error, but I was able to shop around and find beautiful accessories at reasonable price points. Here’s what I’ll be wearing on the big day.
Something old: I’ll be using my 99-year-old grandmother’s silver clutch to carry my essentials on our wedding day. I’ve used this pretty clutch before and shot an outfit post with it last year on the blog, here.
Something new: My earrings, necklace, bracelet, sash, and hair piece are all new pieces that I can’t wait to wear on my wedding day. The matching earrings and necklace are a simple teardrop design, but add a touch of glam. The bracelet will be a keepsake that I will wear beyond our wedding day (I love the tiny engraved “A” and our wedding date), and the hair piece will add a bit of sparkle to the back of my hair. The sash was an amazing find on etsy (I had tried on an almost identical sash at a bridal boutique that I loved, but it was five times the price of this one!).
Something borrowed: This pretty brooch belonged to my grandmother on my mom’s side. I’ll be pinning it to the lace wrapped around my bouquet. It makes me happy that I’ll have something from both of my grandmothers incorporated into my wedding day look!
Something blue: For a little something blue, I added these “I Do” shoe stickers to the back of my silver wedges. I’ve also seen these on the bottom of wedding heels. Such a fun, cute touch that will make for a great photo opp! When I’m ready to kick off my heels (because let’s face it, I’d be a fool to think that I can last all day, standing through the ceremony, and dancing the night away in heels, even if they are small wedges), I’ll still have my something blue on in the form of the blue soles on my silver Tieks flats.
