FABULOUS FLORAL STYLING
Flowers, leaves and petals have always featured in designs for tiaras and jewellery for centuries, but now more then ever we have noticed a growing trend for all things floral. This makes sense as more weddings are being planned which perfectly suit gorgeous flower inspired accessories. So don’t miss out on this beautiful trend as there are the most gorgeous floral pieces available now and here is our advice for what to check out for your perfect floral inspired wedding pieces.
Floral themed accessories are perfect for Summer weddings. They beautifully compliment the full floral bouquets and table displays used this time of year and the sort of dresses which are usually picked for Summer nuptials. Romantic flowing dresses for summer garden receptions and the vintage tea party theme always look fabulous with large floral headpieces featuring roses or flowers which look like they belong in an English Garden. If you have chosen this sort of dress or theme for your wedding, look for a soft and feminine headpiece such as ones featuring hand enamelled flowers and leaves. This is a really romantic look and will compliment your fairytale summer wedding.
Headbands, dainty tiaras or clips featuring flowers in the design can be just right for a beach wedding. It will look less formal than the idea of a traditional tiara and more in place for the beach setting. Look particularly for designs featuring freshwater pearls as this adds to the beach theme. If you are wearing a floaty dress for the wedding, look for a Grecian style headpiece – a garland style tiara or vine made up of a row of flowers – this will be ideal and look goddess like. Consider our Champagne Gold accessories for beach weddings as these accessories will perfectly compliment sandy beaches and sunlit skies.
AN EXOTIC LOCATION
You can really push the boat out when getting married in a more exotic location – it’s easier to get away with a statement floral piece like a large side headpiece featuring larger petals and exotic looking flowers. Look for oversized clips or headbands which will suit a wedding in the Far East or Caribbean which feature larger leaf or botanical elements. If you don’t want to wear a headdress look instead at the floral belts you can wear to make your wedding dress look more on theme.
THE BOHO LOOK
If you are going for a bohemian style dress or a more relaxed venue like a rustic barn or garden wedding, there are some wonderful complimentary accessories available. The ones that look best are the informal hair vines which can be worn across the forehead or be woven in the hair as well as bands with floral detailing on the sides. Many of these feature pretty delicate floral patterns and will look beautiful with this style dress. Also look at clips and combs with dainty flowers. Don’t rule out gold or rose gold pieces as these can look even more striking and really boho romantic.
MATCH THE DRESS
Take the time to look closely at any decoration on your dress – many of the dresses which feature embroidery have a floral pattern and it’s good to consider this when choosing the accessories to match. Take pictures of your dress along to a professional tiara fitting and ask for advice about the best pieces to compliment the embellishments on your dress. For example matching pearls or the shape of crystals can help tie the whole look together. If your dress features a large floral pattern then pick a piece with a larger floral focal piece, but if your lace has tiny delicate flowers then go for a piece with dainty flowers and petals.
If you like the idea of flowers featuring in your bridal look but don’t want it to be as obvious as a headpiece then it’s best to consider floral jewellery, or you can match jewellery to your floral band or clip for a completely floral theme. You could pick a simple bracelet with a rose design or a pair of earrings in a floral pattern which will be subtle and very feminine. Take a look at the options available – there has been a huge amount of lovely floral jewellery which has become available this year so have fun trying the jewellery and see what feels best for your big day. We are finding that brides are loving our pieces of jewellery which feature flowers, petal and leaves in organic patterns so consider these options rather then just the more traditional jewellery designs.
BE AN EARLY BIRD
Look for your accessories early. If you think that your wedding will lend itself to wearing accessories with a floral theme then shop around for the different styles and find what suits you best. This may influence the whole look of your outfit for the wedding. Brides can sometimes regret only shopping for accessories later on as they may find an amazing piece of jewellery or headpiece which looks wonderful on them but just won’t go with the dress. Sometimes it’s best to find the little touches that really compliment each bride and use it as a starting point to produce a complete look.
FLORALS FOR BRIDESMAIDS
Match the whole look by choosing floral clips or subtle headbands for your flower girls and bridesmaids. There are some fab designs available which look adorable for tiny ones as well as some gorgeous pieces for your adult bridesmaids so use floral as the whole theme to give the wedding party a matching look for the photos.
