Winter wedding season is underway, and couples will be making their final preparations ahead of some seasonally-inspired nuptials. One of the top entries on every bride-to-be’s to-do list is bagging the accessories that really complement their chosen wedding gown. Winter offers plenty of inspiration to influence every part of your wedding day, including your choice of accessories. In this blog post, we offer our rundown of the best winter-themed wedding accessories available right now so you can find a look you love for your big day.
Opal hair combs
Dressing your tresses is just as important as finding jewellery and other accessories to complement your bridal look. A wedding hair comb exudes a timeless style. This season’s on-trend opal and crystal encrusted creations provide the perfect way to accessorise your bridal hair, guaranteeing a unique look that adds extra sparkle to winter wedding themes. Hair combs are also extremely versatile and are able to be worn on their own for added drama or alongside your veil.
Celestial pins and tiaras
For a bridal hair look that is truly out of this world, you may want to give celestial hair pins, headbands and tiaras a try. The ultimate style statement, celestial hair accessories range from simple moon combs to complex circlet star designs. Most designs use crystals to ensure a finish that really sparkles. Whether you’re going for the ethereal bridal look or want to add a chic twist to more classic wedding day attire, these celestial accessories should provide plenty of inspiration.
Want to go really seasonal with your accessories? Taking inspiration from the snow outside could be the way forward. Snowflakes offer a stunning nod to the winter season. There are countless designs to choose from, including snowflake jewellery designs for the bride and her bridesmaids, and buttonholes for the groom and his groomsmen to snowflake-inspired wedding décor and floral arrangements.
The vintage look is extremely popular whatever the season, and as a first class wedding venue we have hosted countless boho weddings within our castle grounds. Boho-inspired bridal wear is all about texture, and it doesn’t stop when choosing the accessories to complete your ensemble. Using delicate chiffon lace to complement your bridal attire will add a feminine touch as well as make a simple but elegant style statement.
Even more elaborate wedding dresses look great with lace shawls, with the subtle nature of the lace enhancing, not swamping, most wedding dress designs.
Those looking to continue the vintage theme will love wedding gloves, as they look great with modern and classic dress designs. During winter, this stylish accessory also has a practical purpose too. There are tons of wedding glove designs to choose from, including the classic satin wedding gloves, delicate lace numbers and vintage inspired crochet designs. Your bridesmaids don’t have to miss out on the act either, as One Fab Day describes:
“What about gloves for your bridesmaids? Again, this look works best with a more vintage aesthetic and adds a charming stylish twist to wedding photos. Bridesmaid gloves are also a great way to create a cohesive look, even if your girls opt for different bridesmaid dresses.”
Faux fur and feather stoles
Those looking to wrap up warm will love accessorising with a faux fur cover-up. Classic bridal boleros are the perfect accompaniment to any wedding day outfit. Brides wanting to differentiate themselves from carefully coordinated bridesmaids and super stylish wedding guests may want to explore other material choices. Feathered stoles or capes are another option and most designs not only keep you warm but add the drama that will make your bridal look a stand out success.
Whether opting for a faux fur or feather cover-up, these stylish and practical options ensure strapless gowns are made more modest and seasonally appropriate, keeping you cosy at the same time.
