Top Bridal Accessory Trends for Spring 2017


Planning your wedding? The Spring 2017 wedding season is in full swing, and we’re so excited to see what this year will bring in bridal inspiration!

We were able to take a peek at the biggest trends at the bridal fashion weeks last fall, and our new collection offers a little bit of everything for this year’s modern, whimsical bride.

Here’s a breakdown of the big gown trends and which accessories you can wear to complete every look.

The Look: Enchanted Beauty



This look is created for the romantic yet outdoorsy bride with a passion for adventure. The rustic-chic-enchanted forest wedding features surprisingly organic, soft details. Gowns with 3D florals fall into this category, along with bridal capes, artistic sleeves, and ethereal layers.

Floral crowns are a good match for the enchanted bride, as are delicate flower combs and whimsical garlands. Lovely accessories such as a metallic leaf hair clip, sparkly earrings, or a floral belt will instantly elevate your ensemble with graceful elegance. Add an embroidered edge veil or an ethereal cut edge veil for a dreamy touch of romance. This look is straight from a fairy tale.

The Look: Princess Bride



Every designer offers gowns for the princess look, because every bride should look and feel gorgeous on her big day! This year’s ball gowns and romantic A-lines offer grandiose trains, lots of lace, long sleeves, and over-the-top sparkle that will make anyone feel like royalty.

The best match for this style is, pretty obviously, a sparkling tiara. Bridal crowns are looking big this year, adding creative dimension and volume to your style. Play up the bling with dramatic earrings or transform a strapless gown with shoulder jewelry. Shimmering headbands and rhinestone combs offer alternatives for bridesmaids or a reception change.

The Look: Boho Babe



This year’s bohemian bride is taking a more sophisticated spin. Last year’s casual dresses have evolved into delicate laces and retro silhouettes with big bell sleeves, see-through layers, and ready-to-wear fabrics that are super comfortable and yet so chic.

Boho-glam is in this year. Style this look with a sparkling bit of hair jewelry and big, bold statement pieces; personalize a simple gown by adding jewelry with meaning. For a more subtle, nature-inspired look, our goddess-worthy gold headbands are an easy-wear solution. Flexible hair vines offer a way to twist some bling into a braid or updo.

The Look: Retro



Gone is the Gatsby Era of the early teens; 2017 highlights a variety of retro styles. 90’s spaghetti straps and two-piece gowns are in for the dramatic, on-trend bride. Other big retro looks include dramatic bows, structured corset tops, peplums, and 70’s era jumpsuits/pants.

How To Style Me



For a sweet ‘90s look, a simple ribbon edge veil and small flower comb will do the trick. If you’re going more ‘60s-‘70s, a glittering bohemian headpiece is a game-changer. Our fascinators and vintage-inspired headbands mimic styles from the ‘20s and ‘50s. Delicate, French lace veils generally complement the retro lace gowns created by this year’s indie designers.

The Look: Fashionista



Dramatic trends are made for the bold bride who wants to look fresh and modern. See-through nude laces and plunging necklines, backless gowns and dramatic trains, and non-white colors are all the rage. Detachable skirts in place of separate reception dresses are still looking popular this year, though short bridal gowns are becoming readily more available.

How To Style Me



Our newest collections offer a little something for everyone, whether you prefer small pins or a bold, glittering headpiece. Our rose gold series includes the most popular Bel Aire Bridal headpieces, from stunning tiaras to decadent combs. We also offer earrings and bracelets in rose gold, yellow gold, opal rhinestone, and sparkly silver. Our new luxe tulle veils are super soft and silky, and since they’re cut edge, they go with everything.

The Look: Hopeless Romantic



Romance is always a big theme in bridal, and this year’s designers have outdone themselves with a plethora of sensual off-the-shoulder gowns and plunging necklines. Tulle overlays interspersed with lace create a gorgeous illusion of volume without bulk. This season’s heart-fluttering gowns come in soft hues of blush, gold, and champagne.

How To Style Me



We offer a wide variety of veils in champagne and blush to complement gowns in these pretty, feminine shades. Soft floral crowns and combs beautifully accent a romantic look; petal-strewn headbands with sparkling crystals and rhinestones create an elegant aesthetic. Our lace cathedral veils are the perfect choice for a romantic outfit.

The Look: Dress to Dazzle


Where would brides be without bling? Lost in a sea of fabric. Designers amped up the sparkle factor with slinky sheath gowns, textured ball gowns, and sexy destination dresses that provide the perfect opportunity to play up glamorous accessories.

How To Style Me



Formal brides do well with plenty of bling. A stunning headpiece like a rhinestone-encrusted headband or shimmering comb accentuates the beauty of your whole ensemble, while a beaded veil or cathedral veil with rhinestones adds slight shimmer. A bridal belt transforms your gown with unique sparkle. Our opal rhinestone halos and headbands add on-trend glamour to the look.
