What are some of the most elegant bridal bags and accessories to look out for in the summer of 2013? Bags and accessories can be judged on the quality of their design, their stitching, use of adornments like crystals, and by the reputation of their brand names. In terms of what to look out for, there’s some great Love Heart bags, floral and ruffled bags, as well as accessories like overskirts, headdresses, and retro gloves to consider if you’re planning for a summer 2013 wedding.
Love Heart Bags
These bags represent red heart shapes encrusted with crystals, and come with a silver coloured lining; the high quality crystals used as part of these bags helps to set them apart as a statement item, while the bag itself is still compact enough to carry around on the day of a wedding.
Freshwater Pearl Necklaces & Bracelets
Make necklaces and bracelets stand out for a summer wedding with Freshwater pearls; these pearls can be used to add some traditional glamour to a wedding dress, and can be found with solid silver clasps and matching bags.
Aspinal of London Chain Bag
If you want a bag that’s really going to stand out this summer, then it’s worth checking out Aspinal of London chain bags; these are made using a silver finish, which effectively makes the bag a mirror, perfect for sunny days and for checking makeup.
On trend for ruffles and overskirts on dresses and tops, ruffled bags can be used to match up with dresses; look for brands like Fiorelli, and nude, subtle colours for these bags, which can also be used at other times of the year.
Another trend that can be extended to wedding accessories, florals can be added to bags to create a simple but effective design. Chloe and other brands are worth exploring for this style.
Put some extra glamour into your wedding outfit with bridal headdresses, which feature elaborate jewellery and flower clips, and can be carefully matched up to your jewellery and bag.
Ivory Kid Leather Gloves
Keeping with the retro theme, these 1960s inspired gloves can be worn at certain parts of the day, and can be complemented with vintage bridal jewellery.
One of the major trends in bridal-wear at the moment is for longer than average veils, which can look great in wedding photographs; get your bridesmaids to give you a hand when getting to and from the ceremony, though.
As an adornment, overskirts can represent a great way to participate in peplum trends with your wedding dress; these can be simple or elaborate depending on how much you want them to accentuate your waist or create a slimmer figure.
Lace Oval Clutch Bag
For when you want to match up your clutch to your veil and dress, lace oval bags can seamlessly blend into the rest of your outfit, and can be fastened using clasps with a gold trim. Ideal for day weddings and receptions at night.
