Style Guide: Fall Wedding Accessories

Lace Wedding Dress

 

Truman Capote said, “Aprils have never meant much to me, autumns seem that season of beginning, spring.” And a lot of engaged couples are jumping on the autumn bandwagon (complete with hay stacks, caramel apples, and mugs of hot chocolate). In fact, autumn is fast becoming the most popular time to get married, which is why Capote’s quote is so relevant; the wedding signifies a beginning, just as the fall equinox ushers in a new season, one with all kinds of beautiful changes.

This leads me to fall wedding accessories, because like an orange leaf that bejewels a tree of changing greens, a good accessory can accentuate the bride and her dress. The trick is to keep it simple. Too many baubles and bling will overpower the bride. To help you sort out what accessories will look best for your fall wedding, here’s a style guide with our top picks.

 

Pearls

Silver Pearl Brooch

 

Pearls are classic, which means they never go out of style and they’re always on trend in the wedding world. Wear a single string of pearls around your neck, drape them through your hair (especially lovely in braids), or don a pair of pearl earrings. They come in all kinds of colors, but it’s best to stick with shades of white that match your dress.

 

Brooches

Something Blue Wedding Brooch

 

Crystal jeweled brooches, whether antique or modern, are a simple and stylish way to add a bit of sparkle to your wedding attire. Pin them on your dress, on your bridal bouquet, or add to your wedding gown sash for a bit of bling. Our blue crystal wedding brooch is the perfect way to add “something blue” to your special day.

 

Hair Clips and Combs

Crystal Hair Comb

 

New York Fashion Week was flush with hair bijoux from chunky floral clip-ins to rhinestone combs. Take the trend to the aisle with crystal and pearl combs or fabric flowers placed delicately in your up-do.

 

Sashes

Jeweled Bridal Sash

If your wedding dress needs just a little bit something extra, consider a jeweled bridal sash made of crystals and rhinestones. You would be amazed at how a simple sparkling belt can change the look of a dress. Try on your gown as is, then try it on with a sash and see which one you like better.
