Wedding Fashion Trend: Bridal Headbands

I love brides in traditional wedding veils but these bridal head bands might have you ditching the veil for these stylish and modern hair accessories.

You can find a head band to match almost any gown.  These headbands are made out of tulle, lace and even crystals.

Depending on the style of the dress you can find a more classic and simple head band.

Or choose a large headband made out of crystals or flowers to make a bold statement.

Will you be ditching your veil for a bridal headband?

Trend Alert: Cardigans

Choosing a wedding or bridesmaid dress for a Fall wedding can be a little tricky.  Especially in the South you never know how cold the weather will be and it can be difficult finding a bridal gown or a bridesmaid dress with sleeves.  A Fall trend I love is to wear a cardigan instead of wearing a shawl or a jacket to keep you warm.  Cardigans come in many different styles and are lightweight and comfortable.  Plus, unlike a matching jacket or shawl, they can be worn again!

If you like a particular bridesmaid dress but want each girl to look a little different try putting your girls in colorful cardigans.

Another twist on the same dress is to pair with the same color cardigan but different styles for each girl.

Or have girls pick their own dresses in the same color and pair with a colorful cardigan.

My favorite idea is to take a plain dress and pair it with a patterned cardigan like below.

Brides are also joining in on this cardigan trend! Love the pop of color!

What do you think of this cardigan trend?  Should brides join this trend or do you think it’s better for bridesmaids?

Fashion Accessory: Bridal Hats

A few weeks ago at Glendalough Manor a bride wore a show-stopping top hat to the reception with her bridal gown. I couldn’t help but admire her guts to wear such a fashion forward and incredibly unique accessory on her wedding day. The pictures below are the closest thing I could find to her bridal hat.   I will be posting pictures soon of the wedding at Glendalough Manor and her incredible hat!

If you think that this trend is too fashion forward or too bold for your style you may want to think again.  There are so many bridal hats to choose from depending on your individual taste and style.  You can choose a small dainty hat or a large avant-garde hat but either way wearing a hat on your wedding day is a unique.

Take a look at these more simple hats with different adornments including feathers and birdcage veils that can be worn for the ceremony.  Simple and elegant but also unique!

Or you can always choose to forgo the hat for the ceremony (especially if it is large) and wear it for the reception!  Guests will go gaga over the dramatic change in how you look!

As I was looking for pictures of bridal hats I started to really love this trend.  Maybe I am a sucker for anything different but I have to say I would totally rock a hat if I was getting married again! Take a look at some of these dramatic and jaw dropping hats!

I love how these hats look like real flowers!!

One of my favorites is the hat below…just gorgeous!

What do you think about bridal hats?

Would you wear one?  We want to know!
