Spring weddings are just around the corner! You probably have a lot of your major choices made for your wedding already, and now is the time to decide on the special details. This is a look at spring wedding jewelry and accessories for brides.
The whole feeling of spring is light and upbeat. Bridal jewelry sets which feature delicate details, soft hues, and pretty designs are perfect for the season. Naturally, you should look for sets of bridal jewelry which complement the embellishments and neckline of your wedding gown as well. Pearls are especially popular for spring brides. A lovely option is a tin cup necklace, which appears to float around the neck in a dainty way. Open and airy, it is an ideal style for a spring bride.
Pastel colors are popular for spring weddings, and they can be wonderful to incorporate into the bridal jewelry. Wedding jewelry created from Swarovski pearls in pretty shades of pink, light blue, or lilac are a beautiful alternative to classic white wedding jewelry. The pearls give the jewelry a timeless elegance, while the use of color gives it a unique and fresh appeal. Another option is to wear a pair of pearl earrings with a colored Swarovski crystal accent with a traditional white pearl necklace. When the color accent is very small, feel free to play with brighter colors, such as peridot green or aqua blue crystals.
Spring weather tends to be unpredictable, so it can be wise to have a wrap or cover up in your collection of wedding accessories. A sheer organza wrap embroidered with flowers would be absolutely exquisite. It is a lovely alternative to the standard pashmina. Another gorgeous option is to wear a very sheer chiffon capelet over the bridal gown for a bit of warmth. Choose one which is studded with glittering Swarovski crystals for a look which is right on trend this season. Brides who prefer a more tailored style will adore a sheer lace shrug which is fitted to the body. A lace shrug is lovely with a lace-trimmed bridal gown naturally, but it is equally gorgeous with a plain silk gown.
Then there are the shoes. Ballet style flats are always pretty for spring. They will give you a “spring” in your step, as they are so feminine and comfortable to wear. If you like shoes with more height, consider a strappy sandal with a kitten heel. They would be a great way to show off your first pedicure of the season. Wedge heel sandals are a trend for this spring, but be wary of them as bridal shoes. While they do give you height with good stability, wedges do not flex under your feet, and tend to result in a less graceful walk than other shoes. You want to glide, not clomp, down the aisle after all. Also be wary of any flip flop type of sandal, no matter how embellished, as they are also hard to walk in gracefully.
Every bride needs a little bag in which to stash her essentials and there are plenty of cute options for spring. A vintage beaded bag with pastel blossoms would be absolutely charming. If vintage is not your style, consider a slim clutch in ivory with a jeweled clasp. The bag only needs to be large enough for your lipstick, compact, and a couple of tissues, so this is one time when you can go for style over function in a bag. The perfect bridal jewelry and wedding accessories will be just what you need to complete your spring wedding ensemble.
