Fun & Unique Bridal Pieces That Are Totally Adorable!
I love, love, love when brides cater their wedding day look to their own personal style. Some brides go all out and embrace their quirks or wardrobe staples, while others go the more subtle route . Either way you’ll end up with a more personalized wedding day.
If you’re still working on piecing together your wedding ensemble, consider tying in something unique to you. Like I said, it doesn’t have to be something major, but even if it is a big fashion statement, then good for you. It’s your day, so you call the fashion shots!
Here are some of the best pieces I’ve seen that make for a fun and adorable wedding day look:
Capes. Veils not for you? I hear ya, I ditched mine pretty quick after my ceremony. Capes are a fun and fashion-forward look that give the illusion of a veil without actually having on a headpiece. Or go with a short cape over your shoulders – so adorable.
Sneakers. Revolutionized by Annie in Father of the Bride, this idea is perfect for you tomboys, or for anyone who just loves their kicks and wouldn’t be caught dead in heels. Converse sneaks are super cute, but I’ve also seen toms, sneakers and keds that all work perfectly with the brides style.
Faux Fur. One of my total faves, and perfect for late fall or winter weddings. Not only can it help keep a girl warm, it’s so, so, so pretty. Go with a fur wrap, fur cape, fur scarf or fur coat for a stunning look. And obviously I stress the faux part because animals.
Boots. Do you absolutely live in a pair of boots? Why not embrace that on your big day? Whether it’s a pair of combat boots, your beloved cowboy boots, or brightly colored galoshes, you should totally consider rocking these under your gown. Not only will they make for fun photos, they’re also really practical for outdoor, fall or winter weddings.
Leather Coat. Are you a biker babe? Or do you just live and die for your leather jackets? Wear your signature piece over your gown. It’ll keep you warm and give you a chic look. If your style is a little more edgy, your wedding day style should be too.
Flannel. Some people just can’t get enough of their flannel. If this is you, work it into your wedding style. For a rustic or country themed wedding, this look ties in so perfectly. Go big with a shirt, or tone it down with a scarf or throw blanket draped around your shoulders. Trendy as flannel and plaid patterns are right now, you’ll have a plethora of options to choose from that will work with just about any color scheme.
Colorful Underskirts. If you just can’t get onboard with an all white wedding day look, work some color into your ensemble. An easy and fun way is with colorful or patterned underskirts or tulle. You can order them in lots of fun colors, so talk to your bridal shop and see what their options are. If they don’t have what you’re looking for, look elsewhere and work with your tailor during alterations to make sure everything will piece together well.
If these all seem like a little too much for you, and you’re on the fence about tying in your own personal fashion style, then dial these ideas way down. Think undies, garter or jewelry. You can work in your own personal preferences into the little details too; the perfect way to look and feel like a bride but still stay true to our own inner fashionista.
