Accessories for the Unconventional Bride
In everyday life you dress to express your personality, and this is exactly what you should do on your wedding day. If you’re a modern bride, looking for accessories that are far from ordinary, we give you some alternative options, from your head down to your toes.
Whether your hair is up or down, you can find embellishments to complement your bridal style.

Cover your head with something a little edgier than a conventional veil by opting for hats and fascinators.
Add a touch of mystery to your wedding outfit by hiding behind an ornate disguise.
The Cover Up
Looking for something to wrap around your shoulders (that doesn’t look like it belonged to your grandmother!)? Whether it’s a shawl, bolero or cape, covering up isn’t just to keep you warm during the cooler months.
Add a healthy dollop of drama to your outfit by adorning yourself with a floor length cape.
Do you like the idea of the cape, but it’s just too melodramatic for your taste? Choose the little sister version: the capelet.

Boleros and Jackets
Pick a cover-up to suit your style- whether it’s formal and chic, or relaxed and fun.
Not every bride is a confident wearer of stilettos, so you’ll be pleased to know that you can hit the dance floor in anything from toms to thongs.
Casual and Cool
Let your feet breathe in a pair of gladiator sandals, especially if you’re planning your nuptials for the hot summer months.
You might have said no to heels, but you can still find some gorgeous ballet flats to slip your feet into.
The Heel Deal
If you’re looking for a small heel to give you a little bit of height, without killing your feet, choose kitten heels. I’m not sure why they’re named after a small furry pet, but just like their namesake, they’re really cute and all your friends will ooh and aah.
All That Glitters
Hair EmbellishmentsTake the glamour level up a notch by wearing decorative pieces in your hair.

Ear CuffsMake a statement with bold jewellery choices for your ears.
NecklaceNot many things can be worn backwards and still look gorgeous (for example – your bra!).
ArmletsOne way to show off your toned limbs is by wearing an statement-making upper arm cuff.
Bracelets and BanglesWhether you choose to go delicate or chunky, pick a bracelet that suits your wedding theme, your wedding dress and your wedding style.
Fingers and Toes
Getting married on the beach is the perfect opportunity to do what most brides dream of doing after hours in their shoes – going barefoot. Being shoe-less certainly doesn’t stop you from dressing up your perfectly manicured feet.
You can wear diamonds, pearls and lace on your wedding day, or you can pick something unconventional to add to your bridal outfit. It’s fun to experiment, and it’s a great way to refresh your look, but your fiancé still needs to recognise you, so make sure the accessories you choose are a reflection of you.
