Afternoon Lovely People,
Happy Friday! Hope you all have an awesome weekend ahead of you. We’re getting into the Christmas spirit in the Dunstone household and are buying our tree and putting up our decorations. This year Christmas has a whole new exciting meaning as its little Indie’s first Christmas! Can’t wait to see her little face when we put the tree up and turn on the lights!
Talking of Christmas decorations, we have an AMAZING Christmas DIY coming your way this month! Think Christmas decorations with a bohemian twist………….we can’t wait to share it with you! Should be coming up on the blog next week.
Today we have a guest post from the brilliant bridal label BHLDN. For those of you that don’t already know, BHLDN belongs to the same family as Festival Bride’s favourite Anthropologie and comes with the same fashion forward ethos and free spirited style. When they got in touch and asked if they could write an article for us, of course the answer was going to be a big fat YES! I especially have been a huge fan of BHLDN for a long time and brought these stunning earrings to wear on my wedding day. It’s an absolute privilege to have them write exclusive content for us and they haven’t disappointed as this post is jam packed of fantastic ideas to get you well on the way to being a winter wonderland bridal goddess!
Over to BHLDN…..
When it comes to accessorizing for a winter wedding, it’s all about capturing the beautiful contrasts of the season: soft, cozy textures, glistening icicles and snow, and the warm glow of twinkling candles. BHLDN has just the right tips for achieving a look that is both warm and whimsical, mixing in practicality and personal style.
Accenting your wedding gown with crystal bridal jewelry that shimmers in the wintery light is the perfect way to add a touch of glamour to an otherwise simple ensemble.
Beaded clutches and sparkly sashes can also add more depth and interest to your look.
Wedding headbands and halos are a trend we love for any time of year but winter brides look especially dazzling with a wedding headpiece featuring shimmering crystals or clusters of pearls.
A cozy topper is a winter wedding accessory must, not only to keep warm, but also to add another layer of rich texture to your bridal attire. We love the idea of adding a feather topper or cashmere wrap to a sleeveless wedding gown or strapless wedding dress for the perfect amount of textural contrast.
A beaded capelet or metallic lace topper can also make a bold statement while taking off a bit of the winter chill.
Winter wedding brides should approach wedding heels with caution. Opt for sturdy, lower heels with ankle straps or play it safe with a pair of dainty flats.
If you’re still in search of the right dress to pair with these pieces, lace wedding gowns are a great option for brides looking to emulate the delicate playfulness of a winter wonderland wedding. Whether it be a strapless lace wedding dress, or a lace wedding gown with sleeves, these intricate ivory patterns are perfectly reminiscent of the snowflakes that characterize the season.
Sleek and simple gowns are another sophisticated option that leave plenty of opportunity for personalization. When it comes to these styles, the more accessories the better!
No matter what style you choose for your winter wedding bridal look, make sure to choose wedding accessories that are true to you and let the magic of the season do the rest!
Massive thanks to BHLDN for sharing this post with us today. Absolute LOVE the Coco Crystal Necklave – so winter wedding glam!
