Back to Front

As more designers create fabulously embellished back panels on dresses, expect brides to look as good from behind as from the front. We are seeing increasing demand for back jewellery and striking wedding hair accessories that beautifully frame vintage style chignons.

50 Shades of Non-ivory

Soft tonal pastel shades of taupe, gold and palest pink continue to gather favour on the international bridal catwalks. Gilt or gold accessories will complement the warmth in these shades beautifully.

Downton Delights

No doubt influenced in some small part by Downton Abbey, designers have introduced many Edwardian inspired touches in their wedding gown styling. Team with simple ribbon headbands and add more intricate flourishes through your choice of wedding jewellery and accessories (don’t forget the all important brooches and cocktail bags for this look).

Time for Tea

Tealength (or ballerina length) dresses heark back to a glamorous 1950s matinee look. These elegant gowns were everywhere on the 2014 catwalks and are just made for pearls – team with pearl earrings, pearl necklaces, pearl hair accessories and pearl bracelets for sophisticated vintage elegance.

Flirty 30s 

Forget demure 30s dresses – welcome clingy, sensual satin bias cut gowns to showcase the female form as brides shimmy down the aisle. Choose sultry, sassy, minimalist bridal accessories to complement the clean lines of this look.

Botanic Beauties

Vintage botanical prints have not only seen a re-emergence on the homewares front but have been recently translated into high fashion on the global catwalks (see Miu Miu and Pucci).

Leaves, branches, plants, fern prints – nature takes a step back to basics – design inspiration from time immemorial is revisited once more.

                                   
We are delighted to see this trend filter through to the bridal market in the form of the most delicate filigree botanical features on dresses and accessories.
                           
In keeping with this trend (fab one for Spring/Summer 2012 brides) we have introduced fabulous hints of foliage in our latest designs.
    
Layering original vintage components ensure impactful centrepieces (replicating foliate patterns on many antique pieces)….while keeping the design simple and pared back lends the ultimate touch of delicacy and femininity to your perfect bridal accessories!

Vintage Hat Trick! Kate rocks Deco styling

Our third UK celeb vintage bride in as many months – retro inspired bridal wear is definitely having its moment! It was no suprise to us that Kate Moss chose a vintage look (we had a 50/50 odds on whether it would be Deco or Boho inflenced).

Kate’s fabulous John Galliano dress and veil echoed flowing, understated 1920s style with a boho chic informality. Kate is ahead of the bridal fash-pack (no surprise there!) with her subtle hints of gold reflecting the bolder hues apparent on the recent 2012 Barcelona catwalks (by Rosa Clara).

Gold accessories are making a comeback as the perfect accent to creamy ivory tones of vintage lace and tulle.  Browse some of our fab gilt accessories for your Big Day.

  

Fab choice also for late summer and Autumn brides who wish to capture those fading rays of summer – gold with topaz reflects the season beautifully. See our complete collection at http://www.vintagebridalaccessories.co.uk
