If selecting the wedding dress of your dreams at Something Blue is a piece of cake, choosing the perfect accessories might just be the icing on top. Brides no longer only focus on including something old, new, borrowed and blue in their wedding day look. The new hottest trends in bridal accessories include alternatives to the classic veil or tiara, and color used in exciting new ways. For the bride looking for a more non-traditional, bohemian look, circlets and floral wreaths are all the rage. Most often worn with long, loose hair, circlets range from dainty to dazzling, with crystals and pearls. Perhaps even more chic, and perfect for an outdoor wedding, is the up-and-coming floral wreath. Wreaths can be simple, incorporating white or ivory flowers and greenery, but a more daring bride can choose from a show-stopping wreath with larger flowers in bold, bright colors. And speaking of color…it’s not just for bridesmaids anymore. Color is making a big comeback, as designers are adding color to bridal gowns to show off the stunning detail work and lace overlays. Watch for soft shades of pink, blue, gray and gold. And to top things off, Something Blue offers veils with color as well. For the bride looking for that romantic, vintage feel, blushers ranging from tulle to French net are an alternative to the traditional longer veils. Ranging from simple to more ornate, blushers can feature elegant crystal and pearl accents. Once you find the picture-perfect dress, let the bridal specialists at Something Blue help you finish off your wedding day look with just the right accessories. Make an appointment today!
