2017's Best Wedding Accessories Round-Up: Wedding Wednesday

Your wedding day is the perfect opportunity to showcase some dazzling accessories. Pieces that wouldn’t necessarily ‘work’ with your everyday outfits, but look and feel amazing on your special day.

Here are some of the hottest wedding accessories trends for 2017.

Shoe Detailing

Whatever the length of your wedding gown, don’t forget about your shoes. You don’t have to fork-out for a pair of Jimmy Choos, adding embellishments to the backs of your heels can make for an eye-catching and beautiful wedding outfit feature. Whether sparkling gems or colorful flowers, shoe accessories are a great way to add an inexpensive and unique touch.

Rose Gold

The pinky hues of this precious metal work with all skin colorings and adds a modern twist on traditional wedding jewelry. Rose gold accessories, when paired with a white or ivory-toned dress, create a delicate and pretty contrast.

Pink Tourmaline

This romantic-hued precious stone, much like rose gold, is a hot wedding jewelry trend for 2017. Again, this soft pink hue will warm-up any skin tone and look fabulous when worn with white or pale colors.

Cocktail Rings

This year’s wedding catwalks have been packed with bridal bling, namely cocktail rings. A cocktail ring doesn’t have to include expensive jewels to create the desired effect. Consider this trend as an item of costume jewelry, it just has to stand out and look great with your bridal gown.

Wedding Flats

If you’re planning on hitting the dance floor on the evening of your wedding, don’t forget to bring some wedding flats. Your feet will thank you after hours of standing and socializing with your guests. If you’re looking to get away from white shoes, opt for some soft metallic toned shoes instead. That way you can wear them after your wedding day and take them on your honeymoon.

Peal Headbands

This soft, precious stone looks divine on all skin tones, but can work just as well when worn as a headband. A switch-up on the conventional sparkling wedding tiara, pearl wedding crowns offer a pared-down alternative. For brides who want to look and feel like a princess on their wedding day.

Forehead Bands

These bands sit close to the top of the forehead and are an elegant alternative to a veil or tiara. If you love old-fashioned vintage glamour, a jeweled forehead band can tie into this look nicely. Forehead bands look best with bright or red lipstick, bringing the focus onto your face.

Succulent Boutonnieres

When it comes to wedding accessories, don’t forget the guys! Boutonnieres are a delightful addition to the groom’s and groomsmen's outfits and they don’t have to look flowery or overly feminine. This year, boutonniere trends include succulent plants, for chic and modern lapel arrangements that look a bit more manly. Check out this post on how to attach them properly.

Color 'Pop' Socks

For men, colorful socks add a splash of color to an otherwise, plain and pared-down suit. Choose socks which match the accent colors of your wedding to create a cohesive look. Alternatively, matching braces can add a charming and colorful ‘pop’ to the conventional ‘suited and booted’ wedding look.

Statement Earrings

Colorful statement earrings are this year’s version of the whimsical flower crown trend. Bolder, larger designs contrast beautifully with wedding gowns of all shades. Longer earrings also do wonders to draw attention to your neck and décolletage. Perfect when paired with a strapless wedding dress.

Raw Crystal

Jewelry lavished with raw crystals work beautifully with bohemian-inspired wedding outfits. No two pieces of this jewelry looks the same, and so they can add a personalized touch to your bridal outfit. From iridescent opals, to matt turquoise and rose quartz, you can find a precious raw stone in every shade.

Personalized Favors

Personalizing your accessories and collection of wedding favour gifts adds sentimental value. Your wedding party will want to keep these mementos forever, especially if you’ve gone to the trouble to customize them. Whether it's personalized jewelry or gifts for the bridal shower guests, shop online and find a wide range of customizable accessories to suit any budget.

Personalized Onesies

On the morning of your wedding day, personalized wedding dressing gowns make getting ready feel special and an exciting part of the day. This year, trendsetters are adding a twist and opting for personalized onesies for the wedding party. These come in a range of styles and customizable motifs.

Wedding accessories trends for 2017 go far beyond picking the right bouquet. Mix old-fashioned style and sentiment with modern materials, to create a wedding look that truly stands out from the crowd.
