Wedding planning, as soon as we got engaged I started dreaming about wedding dresses and my best friend and I instantly went on the hunt for the perfect dress! I think I’ve found it, but I can’t share it with you just yet!
Wedding accessories are rather like the icing on the cake, they can make a bridal outfit look even more spectacular! BHS have a fabulous range of affordable bridal accessories and I had the opportunity to review a couple of pieces, this is what I thought!
The first piece I chose was the Silver Lily Tiara, I’m not a person who has ever dreamt of looking like a princess (well, not since I was 6!) but this piece caught my eye as it reminded me of something I saw in a designer collection a while ago. It’s stunning, the diamantes really catch the light, and I love that it can easily be popped into long hair using the comb and then pinned securely. Even with a fairly messy up do it works beautifully:
Having children, I really need some form of handbag on my big day to store a few of multitude of bits they’ll insist on bringing, but I also wanted a bag which I could use again. This Ivory pearl box clutch is gorgeous, the beading is only on one side so no fear of snagging your dress, and while it has all the glamour I want for my wedding, it would also be ideal for using for a summer event e.g. the races! While I love it as a clutch bag, it does come with a handy strap too (and no doubt that will come in useful!).
The diamante clasp really sparkles beautifully, and it looks much more expensive than the £23 it is!
One of the wedding accessories I have debated hotly, is a veil. I always thought I would love a long flowing veil, but when trying them on I’ve felt awkward and they’re not me! The ivory sparklecomb hip veil is a fabulous length, and at £25.00 it is a bargain! The sparkle is quite crudely glued on, and while I’ve practiced putting the veil on a few times the sparkle has lifted and I need to either re-glue it or replace the detail, it is however very pretty.
If you’re looking for pretty bridal accessories which won’t cost the earth, I would recommend looking at the BHS wedding collection, as I’m delighted with the silver lily tiara and the beaded clutch bag! They will both be featuring on our big day!
