Bridal Style: Pearls, Sequins, Flowers, and Flappers

Ever since our trip to New York, I’ve been dreaming of pearls, sparkles, and oversized floral accessories. These details seemed to be present in every fashion spread that caught my eye. I immediately began brainstorming how they could be incorporated into Bridal Style. I then had to rack my brain to remember where I had seen all of these details used together before.

Upon returning home, I scoured my bookmarked pages and realized it was a soap opera wedding that had caught my eye from early last spring. There are some things that soap operas do very well, one of which are weddings.

The Young and the Restless featured a wedding between characters Chloe and Billy last April that paired some of my favorite details:
Pearls, Sequins, Flowers, and 1920’s-flapper style.



I love the bride’s headpiece and uniquely glamorous gown. The dramatic sequins are paired with simple-yet-stunning makeup and minimal accessories. The headpiece and bracelets add that extra something and work perfectly with the 1920’s style.


Is it just me, or is there something so lovely about a groom in tails?
Although this tuxedo option is not for everyone, I like to see this throwback style used so well.



The use of monochromatic neutrals paired with textures and embellishments in bridal style is a trend I’d love to see more of. There is something so timeless and so glamorous about this look.

It just goes to show: inspiration comes from everywhere.

Where are you currently finding inspiration?

I have been finding inspiration on the train, colour palettes of what women wear to work!!
I get some really amazing colour combo... coral, lime green and chocolate being my favorite so far.

Glad you two like it as much as I do!

Callie: that's a great combination (I've seen it used in weddings but I don't think I've ever seen it in a single outfit)!
