Accessories We Love: BHLDN

Anthroplogie‘s new BHLDN collection has been quite the topic of discussion today, and we wouldn’t be a bridal fashion blog without tipping our hats to the genius’ of the collection. The gowns are gorgeous

…but what I’ve been mesmerized by are the vintage inspired bridal accessories! Check out my top 5 favorites below:

Clockwise from left to Right:

1* Feathered Corsage Birdcage Veil: Perfect statement piece for a simpler wedding dress.

2* Rosemund Bolero: I love the delicate silk chiffon draping!

3* Sinuous Silk Bracelet: Elegant, yet un-pretentious Crystal bling.

4* Bow-Topped Slingbacks: A bold pop of saffron with bows..yes, please.

5* Ruby Drops: Bold ruby drop dangles, perfect for the spring or fall bride.

1 engagement ring, 3 bridal headpieces: singleBbeautiful

Yesterday we highlighted singleBbeautfiul, an amazing jewelry artisan out of Portland. Since jewelry making is one of the oldest art forms, we thought we’d pair yesterday’s Jewelry Du Jour solitaire engagement ring with one of the oldest bridal style traditions: bridal headpieces (aka bridal veils and other hair adornments). We’d love to hear from you, so leave us a comment and let us know which look you love best!

Look 1* Rustic Bride { champagne dreams feather fascinator + singleBbeautfiul}

For the rustic bride, less is more, which is why we simply paired this gorgeous feather fascinator with the solitary engagement ring. Love!

Look 2* Traditional Bride { erica koesler tulle and rhinestone veilsingleBbeautfiul }

The more traditional bride has been looking forward to wearing a long veil for most of her life. Pairing this headpiece with both the engagement ring and solitaire studs helps to accentuate and compliment the brilliant rhinestone accents of the tulle veil.

Look 3* Vintage Bride { twigs & honey tulle birdcagesingleBbeautfiul }

Editor’s Pick: *I love this vintage inspired, double layered tulle birdcage! While delicate with a vintage feel, this birdcage is also the epitome of the modern bride, coming in colors ranging from ivory (shown above) to blush pink, champagne and GREY. It pairs perfectly with our jewelry du jour engagement ring and singleB’s signature style pendant diamond necklace. Pure genius’! ~CB *

Accessories We Love: Amanda Pearl Headband

Many brides want to feel like royalty on their wedding day, and some even choose to wear a glamourous crown to prove it. I say wear a gorgeous crown…but why not choose one that looks a little more greek-goddess, such as this Amanda Pearl Gold Leaf Headband.

Raw-edged gold leaves on a gold wire are the perfect compliment for the bride wanting to feel a little bit regal AND a little bit natural. Pair this gorgeous headband with a grecian-inspired bridal gown or maxi dress and this Amanda Pearl White & Gold Palms Clutch:
