An insight into the best bridal accessory trends for 2012 to ensure you keep ahead of the crowd for next year’s nuptials. we always advise the brides to be faithful to their own style and personality on their wedding day. It is important you still look like you but at the same time it is definitely worth experimenting with the latest trends and designs and have some fun in the process. Wedding accessories have got very exciting in recent years with vintage-inspired pieces taking the bridal world by storm, and we believe that the love of all things vintage will continue to dominate in 2012. So what will be hot next year and how do you choose the perfect accessories to go with your dress? Well, twenties-style dresses and structured skirts look to be big news for wedding attire. But there will also be a revival of the whimsical and romantic with Victorian inspired creations corsets, ruffles and of course lace necklines most certainly inspired by a certain Princess Catherine’s iconic dress earlier this year. An antique silver headband is still an incredibly stylish and popular alternative to the classic tiara and would work well with retro and vintage designs. In 2012, headbands look to be getting wider and bolder, more wraparound than the thin single bands we saw in recent years with exquisite side detailing, sparkling geometric stones and floral depictions. Jeweled soft satin ribbon bands and ethnic-inspired headpieces are a nice way to set off the more bohemian style dresses seen on the new season catwalks, as are feather fascinators and fabric flower pins and headbands. For brides-to-be who have always wanted to wear a tiara on their big day, the look to go for is classic and regal (rather than Cinderella princess-like.) There are plenty of designs available which won’t break the bank but could easily pass off as an heirloom having been beautifully crafted using gold or silver plating, freshwater pearls and crystals. Beautiful art deco detailing on earrings and bracelets means you don’t need to wear heavy pieces. They can still make an impact through the pretty designs and as with everything, balance is the key, so if you are wearing a statement headpiece, more delicate jewelry is the key to getting the look right. top bridal accessories trends 2012: Arabella Hairpin by Olivier Laudus, Rolled Gold 1930’s Etched Heart Locket by Violet Vintage Jewellery, The Gatsby by Victoria Fergusson,Alicia Jewelled Headband by Hermione Harbutt, Emily Earings by Chez Bec.
