8 Hot tips to choose the perfect jewellery for your bridal party

You finally ticked the box on bridesmaid’s dresses. Now comes the real fun, choosing the perfect jewellery for your bridal party. Your top priority is to choose pieces that work in with your chosen dresses. No need to feel overwhelmed. Here are my top ten tips to help you decide:

1. Always consider the dress colour

This will dictate which plating colour works best for your bridal party. Whether it is silver, gold or rose gold. While silver is a safe choice which technically works with pretty much everything, it’s not always the best choice. Here are some great suggestions for what works with each plating:

  • Gold is beautiful with a lot of your deep colours, like navy, emerald green, olive green, ruby red, burgundy, black. It also works really well with ivory and soft beiges.
  • Rose gold is especially stunning with your pinks, dusty pinks, blush, burgundy, and black.
  • Silver is great for your blues, purples, red, pinks, and greens.

These colour suggestions are just a guide to give you some inspiration and are not a blanket rule.

2. Maybe you should add a necklace

Necklaces are a really significant addition to a bridesmaid outfit and can really tie their look together. If their neckline is strapless, off the shoulder, v-neck or a plunging neckline, then it’s certainly worth the consideration. It’s wise to go for a more subtle necklace or pendant as to not upstage the bride. You can even add some personality to their styling by choosing a different pendant for each bridesmaid or choosing something a little larger for your maid/matron-of-honour.

3. Adding colour to your accessories

Colour can be a really great and fun way to add your personal flair. You can match the same colour as the dresses, add a complementing colour or even add a range of colours that tonally work. When is it too matchy matchy? If it’s a simple stud, drop earring or pendant necklace, it’s not such a problem, but if you are choosing bolder pieces, I recommend choosing something more complementary than matchy. For example, if the dresses are navy, and you wanted to go with statement earrings, you could choose earrings that have a hint of navy and perhaps some clear and black crystals or add some beige coloured crystals like golden shadow.

More examples would be if it was dusty pink, you could choose a combination of clear/fuschia/soft pinks/dusty pink. Otherwise, if you wanted to add a complementing colour, an example could be if it was a black dress, you could choose dusty pink, navy, red or even a beige tone. If you do this, you can also add the same colour to the shoes and work all your pieces together.

4. Hair accessories should be considered for your bridal party

Hair accessories should always be considered, whether it be a simple hair pin, comb or headband. How they are wearing their hair will ultimately dictate the accessory you choose. They don’t need to be over the top but just to accent and add individuality. Headbands and hair vines are an elegant and effortless accessory and certainly worth exploring. Combs and hair pins can be added to almost every single hair style around and can be cost effective, especially with a larger bridal party.

5. Choosing accessories for patterned fabric

Sometimes it’s tricky to choose what to do when the fabric is busy. It may be a print or a detailed lace, but ultimately the fabric becomes the statement. You don’t want to detract and the ‘less is more’ principal should certainly be applied. Choose simple pieces, like a pendant and stud set or small earring combination, a drop earring and tennis bracelet combination or just an elegant earring on their own.

6. Always wear earrings

Earrings are a classic staple with any formal outfit. If someone doesn’t have their ears pierced in your bridal party, then go for a clip-on option instead for that person. There are options where clip on earrings and regular backs can match, so don’t let this dictate your decision to not have earrings. If you wish to discuss these options further, please email us (info@glamcouture.com.au) and we can share these with you.

7. Adding a Bracelet

Bracelets are an incredibly popular choice for bridesmaids. Choosing a simple bracelet like a tennis bracelet or pearl bracelet and matching them with simple stud or drop earrings can make for a stunning look. Especially if the dresses are very plain, the bracelet/earring combination will work a treat.

8. Accessories Your Bridesmaids Differently

Mix up the accessories. A super fun thing to do is mix up the accessories. If all your girls’ dresses are the same, it’s a beautiful way to add personality in order to suit your girl’s style. You may have the same dress fabric but different styles and this is the perfect choice to work in with the designs. Examples could be if one has straps, then you could choose an earring and bracelet combo, while another may have a strapless and you could choose a simple pendant with small drop earrings or studs. Have some fun with it and remember that it’s your wedding.

5 Bridal Headpieces for your wedding that we love

As wedding gown fashions continue to change each season, wedding accessories are no different. What ever may be your love? From a stunning gold wedding crown to a gorgeous bold floral headband. There is just so many beautiful wedding headpieces available, just how is it possible to narrow it down to one?
Considering your overall setting. Will your be hair up or down, structured or loose and also including your bridal gown detailing? Do you wish your hair to have a bold statement piece or a subtle splash of detail?

How to choose your perfect bridal headpiece for your wedding

wedding hair accessories for brides

In order to choose your perfect bridal headpiece, your wedding hairstyle needs to be considered. Trending hairstyles are all about texture, texture and more texture. Bridal hair is trending more towards the cool girl style. It’s increasingly moving further away from fixed curls and structured, heavily sprayed looks. It’s “all natural” and “relaxed styles” that are the new chic.

Whether you’re a vintage, modern, or a traditional bride. Hair accessories are a category not to be overlooked. They are basically jewellery for your hair. What’s not to love about that?

Headpieces for different styles

Floral, crystal and pearl headpieces

For classic or traditional brides, a bridal crown, tiara, headband or comb is timeless and chic. For the vintage bride, a gorgeous pearl or crystal comb, headpiece or headband are perfect. While for bohemian brides, hairpins, hair vines, clips with flowers, blossoms, branch motifs, or leaves are the way to go.

A bridal hairpiece with crystals, rhinestones or feathers are perfect for the glamorous bride. While sleek and sculptural pieces in gold, rose gold or silver suits ultra-modern tastes.

You may also consider incorporating hair accessories to your engagement party, rehearsal dinner or bridal shower. A glistening hair comb, floral gold headband, or set of pearl or crystal-adorned hair pins are a feminine and romantic way to ramp up your bridal attire. It’s the perfect way to distinguish your bridal aesthetic from your regular fashion routine and a way to get several uses out of an incredibly special hair piece

The best thing about your wedding hair accessories is that it truly ties your bridal look together. Especially if you opt for simple jewellery. It’s a great way to add that special statement piece. While your bridal hairstyle is a factor in what type of bridal headpiece is right for you. Many can be versatile enough to be worn with your hair up, down, or half up. So if you fall in love with a specific hair accessory, you can most certainly figure out a way to wear it!

All this being said we want to show you our top 5 bridal headpieces that we love. You will be inspired.

Bridal Crowns & Tiaras

One of our favourite wedding headpieces are our bridal crowns and tiaras. Having been trending for a while now and set to trend for a while to come, these headpieces make a gorgeous statement for any bride. With great diversity including gold, silver and rose gold crowns with your choice of embellishments such as Swarovski crystals, Swarovski pearls, fresh water pearls, diamantes and much more. They are versatile with a complete range of hair styles, all up in a high or low bun, half up and fully down, bridal crowns really are just a great choice.

So to begin our top 5 favourite headpieces we have chosen our brand new Bespoke ‘Maleficent’ bridal crown. This gorgeous crown can be handmade in silver, champagne gold or rose gold. We love it for its soft, elegant beauty, adding a stunning feminine touch to your bridal styling. Therefor not only can you choose the colour of the plating, you can also choose the colours of the Swarovski crystals and Swarovski pearls. We are so very proud that it’s one of our own custom made designs.

Bridal Headbands

Another one of our favourite wedding headpiece is our bridal headbands. They are simple and comfortable to wear. They really look stunning with effortless all down hair style, what’s not to love. Headbands are really setting in as a trend. Smaller headbands have been popular for a while now, with feminine floral headbands or even gorgeous art deco headbands. However, with wide floral headbands especially trending in the UK, we have seen a genuine movement here in Australia with similar styles. This brings me to our next favourite bridal headpiece.

Silver floral bridal headband
Floral crystal and pearl statement headband

We love our ‘Camilla’ headband and it’s obvious why. This magnificent headpiece is a real work of art and an incredible statement piece. Featuring gorgeous metal and ceramic flowers with sprays of crystals, pearls and leaves all intertwined using silver wire creating this stunning masterpiece. 

Some tiaras come with the flexibility to be a headband also, just like the next bridal headpiece in our top 5. Our beautiful ‘Georgina’ crown with its gorgeous intricate floral, leaf and crystal detailing. This is available in pale gold, rose gold and shiny silver. It’s obvious to see why we have chosen it.

Bridal Hair Vines

Bridal hair vines are a great way to add some versatile detail to your bridal hair style. They have been a strong trend for a little while now and continuing to do so. With flexibility to wear your hair vine intertwined through a soft braid, compliment your half up style or even wear like a headband. The only limit to hair vines are your imagination. Add a stunning soft feminine touch that compliments your hair style and what an elegant look it is. Works perfect as a vintage headpiece or bohemian headpiece.

Our favourite hair vine making our top 5 bridal headpieces is our ‘Lolla’.
A bridal hair vine packed with gorgeous intricate detail, it’s hard not to fall in love.  Made with beautiful soft ivory ceramic and white metal flowers combined with pearl and leaf sprays and scattered crystals all intertwined together creating this glorious piece.

Bridal Hair Combs

Bridal hair combs have set back in as trend for brides this year and it’s really no surprise. Hair combs are not bound by a bridal theme and can add a touch of any theme you have going. If you are after art deco headpieces, vintage headpieces or even modern headpieces, bridal combs are a great place to start. We love the diversity of size and positioning that they bring not to mention that there is a hair comb to suit almost every bridal hair style there is. They are also a great addition to your fabulous bride tribe styling.

rose gold pearl and leaf large hair comb

Our top pick for hair combs is our classic ‘Amelia’. Amelia’s enchanting design ornamented with fresh water pearls, sparkling crystals and delicately hand painted leaves is just breathtaking.  Available in either silver, rose gold or champagne.

Everything you need to know about the latest royal weddings and their royal wedding outfits. We discuss the 4 most recent royal weddings and their stunning jewellery and wedding gowns.

Lady Gabrielle Windsor’s Royal Wedding & outfit

Yet another beautiful royal wedding Lady Gabriella Windsor stuns as she married her beau Thomas Kingston over the weekend (18th May, 2019). She may be a minor royal but she looked the part as a regal bride.

They married with a beautiful wedding ceremony at the prestigious St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle. The third royal wedding in the space of a year to say their ‘I do’s’ at this amazing venue.

The Royal Wedding Dress & Stunning Jewelled Tiara

Lady Gabriella Windsor, the daughter of the Queen’s cousin, wore a custom-made Luisa Beccaria bridal gown for her wedding.

The wedding gown fitted at the front with a voluminous back and a long train. It was crafted from divine Valencienne lace in an ecru tone with subtle blush tones. The stunning gown was layered with ribbons of flowers and buds featuring a see-through tulle neckline and embellished by embroidery. The gown also had sheer lace long sleeves enriched with embroidery.

A royal wedding wouldn’t be a royal wedding without the long-held tradition for the bride to ‘borrow’ a headpiece to wear on her big day. Lady Gabriella was no different.

She dazzled in an exquisite Russian Fringe style tiara. The stunning gems sparkled beneath her veil as she arrived at Windsor Castle. This beautiful bridal tiara was also worn by her grandmother Princess Marina, Duchess of Kent, and mother Princess Michael of Kent, on their wedding days. You too can create a family heirloom with your bridal accessories and carry this beautiful tradition on in your family.

While Lady Gabrielle’s tiara is estimated somewhere between 1 – 3 million pounds you can still replicate this beauty with your own style on a budget that most brides can afford.

We love our gorgeous ‘Bernadette’ Crown that gives a similar feel:

Silver Bridal crown for your own "royal wedding"

As for other accessories, she also wore gorgeous little baguette diamond drops, simple yet very elegant.

Here is a small collection of our stunning bridal drop earrings to compare:

I feel it’s only fitting we reflect on Meghan, Kate and Eugenie’s accessories and how they compare in their royal styling as being the most royal influential brides of modern times.

When a royal bride is first spotted on her wedding day the tiara is usually the first thing spoken about and once she steps out of her amazing mode of transport, the dress then is critiqued. Great planning for the bride to be her dazzling best.

Usually, there is a huge sentimental value behind the tiaras and not to mention the numerous dazzling diamonds and precious jewels worth millions of pounds.

Meghan – Duchess of Sussex’s Royal Wedding Outfit

At Meghan and Harry’s wedding last May, the now Duchess of Sussex stunned in an art deco style diamond bandeau tiara made in 1932 for Queen Mary. It is estimated to be worth 2 million pounds.

Meghan opted for a simplistic look allowing the bandeau to be her statement piece. She had her glossy hair styled into a low chignon and finished the look with a statement lace veil.

The band was created with diamonds and platinum in 11 sections and pierced with ovals. The centre of it is set with a detachable brooch dating from 1893 and crafted with ten brilliant diamonds. The brooch was given to the then Princess Mary for her wedding to Prince George. The beautiful piece was lent to Meghan by the Queen herself, who was bequeathed the bandeau and brooch by Queen Mary in 1953. What an amazing history.

We still need to take the time to notice the gorgeous simple diamond studs that complement her bandeau so perfectly so as not to detract from all the other elements.

Kate – Duchess of Cambridge’s Royal wedding and outfit

Kate dazzled in a stunning Cartier Halo tiara in April 2011, made in 1936 for the queen’s mother. It is estimated between 750,000 – 1,250,000 pounds in value.

It was made for the Queen’s Mother by Cartier from diamonds and platinum before being passed to the Queen as a birthday gift from her husband. It featured 149 baguette-cut diamonds as well as an astounding 739 brilliant cut diamonds of varying weights.

The tiara was later re-gifted to the Queen, then Princess Elizabeth, by her mother on her 18th birthday in 1944.

She also wore simple drop earrings and a long veil to complement her stunning dress.

Princess Eugenie of York’s Royal Wedding & what she wore

Princess Eugenie made a gorgeous statement with her stunning diamond and emerald tiara. This piece is said to be worth a breathtaking 5 – 10 million pounds, wow!!!

Princess Eugenie's stunning diamond and emerald tiara

For her ceremony at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle on October 12, 2018 Eugenie opted to wear The Greville Emerald Kokoshnik tiara owned by the Queen. This piece was made by Boucheron for Margaret Greville in 1919 in a style popularised by the Russian Imperial Court.

For her special day Eugenie also wore a pair of diamond and emerald drop earrings that were a gift from her husband Jack.

The 28-year-old wore the tiara sans veil with her wedding gown featuring a v-shaped back which showed with pride the scars from the life-changing spinal surgery she underwent as a child.

How to choose the perfect Bridesmaid Headbands

How to choose the perfect Bridesmaid Headbands

Your special day fast approaching, every fashion detail counts. Jewellery and hair accessories are a fun thing to think about through the duration of the wedding planning. You may have put together a Pinterest board or collated a bunch of photos or perhaps it is something that has been completely overlooked. One thing is for sure when it comes to the final decision making it is often one of the tougher decisions to make.

Things to consider when deciding on hair accessories for your fabulous ‘Bride Tribe’:

  • What dress design are they wearing?
  • What hair colour and hair length do your girls have?
  • Do you have a theme that you’re trying to incorporate?
  • Are you wanting all the girls to accessories the same and how are they wearing their hair?

A decision on a signature look for those you’ve chosen to join you in your walk down the aisle may be complicated. What dresses will they wear? Will they be comfortable? Will they like how they look? While finding coordinating dresses comes with its own set of challenges then, what about their hair? Every woman has varying locks and different tastes when it comes to hairstyles. At the end of the day, you want your bridesmaids to be comfortable and confident. Then they can do their job attending to you and making the day enjoyable for all.

A great option for any women with any hair type or length is a bridesmaid headband. It is incredibly versatile and can be used to accentuate virtually any hairstyle. Choose from crystals, pearls, hand painted leaves, flowers, and many more eye-catching options to keep your bridesmaids feeling beautiful and confident.

A creative alternative, the bridal headband

Bridesmaids headbands are a creative alternative to a comb or hair pin with endless styles to choose from. So, whether you’re after a vintage look and feel – or just a little art deco, here are some of our favourite bridal headbands.

Some brides like to choose the bridesmaids hair accessories to coordinate with their own but this all comes down to personal choice not necessity.

To create uniqueness to your wedding ceremony you may consider allowing each bridesmaid to choose her own headband. This can be based on a desired colour or style that will flow with the rest of the wedding wardrobe. But, if you prefer the continuity of all your bridesmaids with the same matching headbands, why not allow individual hairstyles. Imagine how beautiful it would look with 4 different hair styles and a stunning matching bridesmaid headband tying them all together, simply WOW!!!

Just between you & me …

I will let you in on a little secret. You can also explore the world of tiaras, hair vines and headpieces to expand your options. Some smaller tiaras, depending on how they sit, can certainly be positioned differently to give the same effect as a bridal headband. Most hair vines depending on length can double as a bridal headband. Most hair vines have either clips on the ends or loops which can have ribbon looped through the ends and act as a tie under the hair. Likewise, some headpieces can be large enough to wrap around the head and pinned or clipped into the hair to give the illusion of a headband.

Different bridal headband styles & how to wear them

With so many types of headbands available likewise there are many different ways to wear them. Wear it the classic way behind your ears and up on your head for an elegant simple look. You can consider wearing your headband closer to your forehead or even across your forehead. Depending on the style of the bridal headband, the theme of the wedding or the style of the hair will also dictate your decision.

Side headbands are incredibly versatile worn easily with any hairstyle, long or short. A good rule of thumb is to place the bridal headband on the side of the head opposite any dress detailing, such as one shoulder dresses, to harmonise the look.

Let’s have some fun and look at some different types of bridal headbands, hair types and themes to inspire your bridesmaids look:

All-Out Hairstyles with Bridesmaid Headbands

Having all-out hairstyles for your bridesmaids with a stunning headband for the finishing touch is a great choice. Whether your girls have long locks or a short pixie style, this option is perfect. Let your bridesmaids’ hair down and flaunt the gorgeousness of their natural beauty.

Your girls could have voluminous loose curls with a gorgeous floral headband or statement crystal headband. A contrast alternative could be controlled straight hair with a stunning art deco headband.
