While the traditional bride’s outfit for a church wedding should include sleeves or a jacket to cover the shoulders, a trendy way to wear a capelet is to have it casually thrown on one shoulder and wrapped around as seen at the Monique Lhuillier show. Jenny Packham created gorgeous vintage-inspired mini caplets, while Alberta Ferretti designed floor-length tulle capes with intricate embroidery.
A Sparkly headbands makes a gorgeous alternative to a classical tiara and this hip accessory comes in a variety of beautiful floral designs for spring. If you want to adorn your wedding gown with a sash, a big bow around the waist is a major trend to follow, while the current obsession with vintage details doesn’t seem to fade away and we think a 1920s birdcage veil adorned with a freshly picked rose in a soft, pastel shade is a great accessory for a spring wedding.
Colourful flowers are the first thing that comes to mind when you think of spring, so if you want to brighten up your bridal styling with seasonal detail, fresh blooms are ideal. From Oscar de la Renta to Claire Pettibone, many designers were inspired by boho chic for their spring/summer 2015 collections and catwalks were flooded with freshly picked flowers. We think floral crowns are perfect for countryside weddings, but you can just pin a single blossom into your hair or add a hint of colour to your gown with a pretty corsage.
From lace patterns and hair accessories to clutches and shoes, floral patterns are also very popular for spring weddings. White or colourful, they are a fabulous choice for bridal accessories if you want to bring a seasonal element to your wedding. They can be very discrete like white embroidered flowers on your clutch or bold and colourful like a whimsical floral print on your shoes. We also love the delicate flower-shaped jewellery by Van Cleef & Arpels inspired by nature, imaginary worlds and haute couture and the latest headpiece collection by Pronovias which features amazing floral designs.
Colourful accessories look fabulous against natural green backdrops at countryside weddings, so why not add a pop of pink, orange or red to your bridal outfit! You can choose coloured footwear and a matching purse, a bold hair accessory or even some colourful jewellery to make your styling a little more interesting. With bright tones you will definitely make a statement, but pastel shades are also a wonderful choice for the spring. Think soft shades of pink, blue, green, purple, orange or yellow, which are great for both modern and traditional brides.
