Every bride wants her wedding to strike the perfect balance between being timeless and up-to-date. One great way to do that is to incorporate accents that are popular in the world of fashion. You can draw your inspiration not only from bridal magazines, but also from things that are hot in the broader world of fashion and design.
Accessories are key for fall, and they are a really easy thing to add to your wedding. Jewelry is taking center stage this season, so be sure to add some great pieces of wedding jewelry to your bridal ensemble. Special accessories will also be a great way to spice up your bridesmaids’ look.
The style for jewelry this fall is bold and chunky. Big beads are all the rage for autumn. A good way to translate this trend into wedding jewelry is by choosing a necklace with very large pearls or Swarovksi crystals. Forget about dainty little pendants – your necklace should make a statement. Look for bridal necklaces that can be handmade with pearls and crystals in 8 – 10mm sizes or even larger, if you please.
The hottest look for necklaces this fall is not only bigger, but also longer and more. You are seeing long necklaces with chunky beads that drape over a neckline, and often they are arranged in layers. Multi strand necklaces, or even layering two or three separate necklaces is a great way to interpret the trend. For brides, this would mean selecting a simple gown with clean lines so that the interesting design of the wedding jewelry can take center stage.
Bracelets are also big for fall this year. Actually, I should say that big bracelets are big. The look for bracelets is very similar to the trend for necklaces. Big beads and pieces stacked in multiples. With bracelets, another concept is to have a charm that dangles. An engraved silver charm bracelet would make a great jewelry gift idea for the bride to give her bridesmaids.
People attending weddings as guests will also want to keep these trends in mind when deciding what to wear to a fall event. So many people get stuck in a rut when it comes to their special occasion attire, which is a shame. A special occasion is the perfect excuse to treat yourself to a beautiful new outfit in one of fall’s prettiest colors.
For wedding guests who do not want to purchase an entire new outfit, they can spice up something already hanging in their closet by adding the latest accessories. Details like chunky layered necklaces, patent leather clutches in rich colors (especially bottle green), and fabulous shoes can go a long way towards taking an outfit from wearable to wow.
Your wedding is such an exciting time, and you will want it to look picture perfect. A great way to make the most of your day is by taking your inspiration from the world of fashion. A few touches of the latest styles will make your wedding ensemble sparkle!
