Finding Your Bridal Style

Bridal doesn’t have to mean everything in white.  Of course for some brides, keeping it traditional is important and they can have a white dress, white clutch, and white shoes or maybe accessories in silver or with rhinestones.  But if you’d like to venture a little further out you can incorporate your something blue into your clutch, bracelet, or heels.

Maybe your venue allows for more creativity in your color palette.  An outdoor wedding with a green lace dress and floral inspired clutch.  A courthouse wedding with a pink and white striped dress and white purse with rhinestone brooch to keep your day formal yet fun.  Or maybe a Vegas wedding with a tight red dress and sparkly clutch with ornate gold earrings.

Whatever your style you can find great accessories for your special day at Chicastic.

Beach Wedding Accessories

A beach wedding means tropical weather and soothing atmospheres. Why not mirror the venue in your choice of bridal accessories?

Destination weddings can be a lot of fun, whether you’re planning one, enjoying one and getting everything prepped for one. These sorts of venues allow for some guidance as well as fun when it comes to curating the decor. You know that a beach theme is the way to go but there is still a lot of room for experimentation and personality to work within this style. There are some basics you can use as guidance when it comes to accessorizing for your beach wedding to help get you started.

One of the more obvious and beautiful beach motifs are seashells. These gorgeous natural finds are pearlescent and unique and can be worked into your overall wedding theme quite easily. When it comes to accessories, you can simply use seashell inspired items. Clasps, rhinestone studded hairclips, accents, and charms can all be used in necklaces, dress accents, rouche clasps, rings, hair accessories etc. But you don’t always have to go with the obvious. Jewelry and accessories featuring mother of pearl insets, gems, tile mosaic designs, and seashell inspired swirls can all be used as well. Also, think of combining a bit of everything in order to embody the theme as a concept as well as a design. Use mother of pearl earrings, paired with a seashell clasp at the gathering of your bridal skirt with a swirling ring or necklace. Mixing and matching all of these little elements can be classy and creative while still giving off that beachy feel.

Don’t forget about the ocean as well! That sparkling cerulean makes a great accent color and can be used in many ways. Ribbon, lace, gem accents, makeup and shoes can all exhibit the look and feel of the soothing ocean waves. Accent your wedding gown with blue lace or gem insets, wear sapphire or similarly colored jewels in your bridal accessories, or even use small blue accents in your hair. Whatever fits your fancy, there are plenty of ways to add a little bit of color into your wedding repertoire. If you want to go for an even more subtle look, you can bring out the neutral tones of the sand by using rich, creamy beiges and browns instead.

There are plenty of beach-themed accessory ideas you can work with but these are some of the easiest. They can be easily incorporated into your wedding day look without overpowering any traditional styles and can easily adapt to more modern styles as well.
