Like many of our brides, we are obsessed with the wonderful world of Pinterest. This week we’ve curated a collection of bridal jewels inspired by a few of our favorite wedding-themed pinboards. Whether your preferred wedding style is simple and demure or bold and glamorous, we’ve got wedding day baubles to suit every temperament. Oh and gents, don’t think we’ve forgotten about you! A touch of flair at the cuffs to put that finishing touch on your wedding day attire is just what you need.
Ruffled blog’s wedding accessories pinboard is all about the headpiece. From delicate birdcage veils pinned down with vintage headbands to (our personal fave) an elegant updo held in place by a handful of perfectly patinaed vintage brooches, there’s no denying the touch of a glamour a bit of sparkle haloing your head will bring. Recreate the looks from Ruffled with a cluster of elegant pins nestled below a low chignon, or secure a Juliet Cap Veil (think Kate Moss) with our Edwardian engraved headband worn ‘round your temples.
Chic Vintage Brides’ Bridal Accessories board is a veritable treasure trove of statement necklaces. Some profess that statement jewels should be worn only with a simple dress or that they have no place in wedding day looks at all. We beg to differ. We love to see brides get creative with their jewels – an arm stacked with sparkling bracelets, a super long strand of pearls worn pinned at the waist or layers of big dramatic necklaces. We’d pair a pearl strand, a sapphire strand and a diamond, pearl and sapphire stunner all together for a long dramatic look worn over an ornamented deco gown.
Another style we’re loving? The sweet ways “something blue” has been incorporated into wedding day looks across so many of our favorite pinboards. One of the best, the Victor Harper wedding gowns with pale powder blue lining is sewn in for a hidden homage to this tradition. In general, beautiful fabrics in the form of ribbons, sashes, petticoats, and garters add a lovely, subtle touch of this ceremony on your big day. Our preferred method, however, shouldn’t come as a surprise. It’s jewels, of course! We have an array of beautiful blues from the deepest sapphire to the most delicate of aquamarines to complement any palette.
And last but certainly not least, a little something for the fellas. While most of the fawning happen over the bride's fanciful duds on the big day, there’s plenty of room for creativity when it comes to your cufflinks. Take a cue from the sartorial styling of the men from the Wedding Chicks “The Groom & His Men” pinboard and choose a whimsical touch like our Monkey & Banana Cufflinks. Alternatively, you can never go wrong with an elegant vintage pair of antique diamond set oval cufflinks, or you might even consider investing in a set of future heirlooms with our Compass Cufflinks. Whichever you choose, your thoughtful accouterment will surely pop beside your partner. (Hint – these also make fabulous groomsmen gifts!)
