Trendy Wedding Accessories You Need Now

How should you accessorize after you found your dream dress? First off, finding the right pieces that add uniqueness but does not take away from your style can be a little bit of a challenge, but we are here to help! Discover the trendy wedding accessories you need now to transform your wedding attire!

Denim Jacket

A jean jacket is one of the most popular accessory trends you will discover if you are a soon-to-be bride. Bridal jean jackets add a unique and fun element to your dress and create photo-worthy pictures on your big day. It works at a variety of venues and will complement greatly to rustic, boho, and modern themes. A denim jacket can be repurposed to wear at any bridal function and makes for a perfect transition look from ceremony to reception. We love the different customization options that are available when creating an outstanding jacket. We see the use of monograms, patches, pearls, and fringes decorated on this cute accessory.

We love this real bride’s use of paint to highlight her and her bridal party. It was a showstopping piece, and the denim jacket is a fantastic gift for your bridesmaids. We are getting a 90’s vibe with this trend, and we love every bit of it!

 

Statement Veils

A change in wedding dress styles has shifted as Covid-19 evoked a new mindset among individuals. We see the replacement of bold wedding dresses to the gravitation of minimalistic designs and silhouettes instead. Brides are choosing to get that same wow factor of flashy dresses but with statement veils. Also, bold veils make it easy for brides to transform their look but still cater to a more subdued aesthetic for their wedding day.

Bridal Shoes

Shoes are seen as an afterthought when picking out your dress, but you will see wedding heels with intricate details become a focal point in 2021. Your shoe needs to be a factor when developing a look. Plan your shoe or shoes to accommodate comfortability, location, and design aesthetics. Garden venues are seen more than ever since the pandemic creating a rise in block heels as a fabulous choice for outdoor weddings. The incorporation of structured bows, intricate floral motifs, beautiful textures and color, and statement heels are on-trend. We often see brides wear two wedding shoes- one for the ceremony and one for the reception.  For example, this lovely bride included an elegant heel and a sparkly sneaker so she can dance the night away. Here at Lulu’s, we make sure you best dressed from head to toe!

 Bold Headpieces & Earrings

Brides are paying attention to detail when it comes to headpieces and statement earrings. A gorgeous large, beaded hoop or a bold stud will be eye-catching to view on your big day.  However, make sure to style your earrings to be complimentary and not clash with your overall dress style. You and your dress will be the star of your wedding! Headpieces are the perfect accessory for the modern bride. Incorporate a fashionable headband or jeweled hairpiece for a magical appearance. A fabulous pearl headband paired with a structured dress or jumpsuit creates the right amount of soft elegance.

Floral Bouquet

We are leaving behind wildflowers and gradients from past years. We are looking ahead to monochromatic looks, textural blooms, and expressive colors. Floral bouquets are an essential and complementary aspect that completes your overall style. Brides are holding bouquets that embrace one color but include dimensional shades to create interest. Also, you might notice petite size floral arrangements pop up in more weddings. Smaller size bouquets are functional and very aesthetically pleasing to your bridal look.

Real Bride, Trish, in Eddy K

“My experience at LuLu’s Bridal shopping for my wedding gown was incredible! My stylist, Daniella, was knowledgeable, she made the experience fun, and she asked all the right questions. She listened to what I was looking for, and she chose styles that both fit my vision and different options I hadn’t considered.

After trying on several dresses in a style of what I originally thought I wanted, she encouraged me to try on one dress in particular she pulled for me that was a different style and color (champagne and ivory). I knew before the dress was fully zipped up that it was my dress! My stylist pulled a veil for me to try on with it, and once my mom started tearing up, we knew I did not need to try on any more dresses.

I felt beautiful and confident in my gown on our wedding day.  I cherished every moment in the dress and didn’t want to take it off! The dress fit my wedding day vision perfectly for our romantic and classic fall wedding. It has the most gorgeous lace and beading detail that made the dress so unique.”

We are completely obsessed with Trish’s Eddy K gown! She made the most beautiful LuLu’s Bride.

Southern Tradition of Bridal Portraits

Rooted in tradition, the bridal portrait is the southern must-have prior to your wedding day!  A bridal portrait is a special photoshoot between the bride and her photographer without any other pomp and circumstance or focal points.  A bride typically will choose a venue totally different than the setting of the wedding or on location at a place dear to her heart.  During this time, the bride is able to do a full “wedding day look” trial run with hair, makeup, bridal gown, veil, accessories and her bridal bouquet.  It is such special time for the bride to envision exactly what she will look like on her special day and have the opportunity to take an extended amount of time to capture the essence of her bridal beauty!  Additionally, this time allows the bride to become more comfortable with her photographer, creates better communication between the two and will help her see which poses are the most flattering for her upcoming nuptials.  On the wedding day, these portraits become a beautiful addition to the overall décor displayed for all friends and family to admire.

Real Bride: Caroline & Knox

Amidst a rainy and dreary day, Caroline and Knox tied the knot in one of the most beautiful settings we could have imagined!  A translucent tent ceremony, allowing full view of the inclement weather, ultimately provided the perfect backdrop for this classic, vintage, yet modern styled celebration.  With rich, lush floral arrangements in various hues of peach, merlot and plum against a bricked architectural masterpiece of the Mopac Event Venue, this room transformation set the tone for an incredible reception and evening of festivity. Congratulations to the beautiful couple!
