Statement Wedding Accessories
To complete your royalty-inspired wedding ensemble, you need accessories to match! And since most of these classic gowns are relatively simple, we recommend opting for accessories that make a statement. Check out these statement wedding accessories up for grabs, from chunky headbands to extravagant crowns.
Chunky Bridal Headbands
The Halo Headband is as close as you can get to wearing a crown in public without, well, wearing a crown. The slanted, padded design gives you a little lift without adding too much height. It measures 1 inch tall at the highest point, so it’s certain to make a statement.
This Lilac Gold Braided Headband features a pleated gold lamé fabric that is structured yet soft. This delicate piece is a great way to add some color to your bridal look without being over-the-top. The beautiful metallic gold color will perfectly contrast a crisp white gown.
The Barely There Wedding Veil is exactly what it sounds like. This sheer minimal veil is crafted with less tulle than most, allowing for more details of your dress to shine through. If your dress features a lot of stunning details, this is a great way to rock a veil without taking away from your gown.
If you want to add a feminine touch and utter romance to your wedding look, opt for a Cathedral Raw Edge Blusher Veil. A minimal design, it lends a truly classical look to any bridal ensemble. And with a raw edge, there is no need to worry whether or not it will complement your dress.
With large wild roses, the Briar Rose Crown is a romantic piece perfect for the romantic bride. Made of solid brass and dragon veil quartz, it features leaves and branches entwined on a flexible band.
The gorgeous St. Marie Tiara is handmade by Melbourne jewelers and consists of an integrated leaf base with Swarovski crystal sprays completing. It is available in a Rhodium plated finish, or Gold plated. This piece is an incredible choice that would beautifully complement a minimal gown.
