2023 Wedding Accessory Guide

Classic Accessories Every Bride will Love

The bridal gown is by far the most important accessory at any wedding. While the bride is the star of the show, the gown is a supporting element that shines just as brightly. No bridal gown is complete without a timeless accessory or unexpected accent that complements the vision. Sparkling earrings, a gorgeous necklace of pearls — no matter the style, accessories can bring a dress to life. 

2023 Accessory Trends

Every year, there are trends that sweep the bridal aisle and embellish the gowns of all the top designers. This year is no different! Take a look at the trends we expect to see take over the 2023 bridal scene. 

Glam Gloves

Gloves have donned the hands of brides for centuries. This vintage and stylish look creates an element of drama with a hint of class. This year, consider accessorizing your gown with a fingerless lace opera glove or a delicate tulle wedding glove in white. 

Mini-Length Wedding Veils

Make way for a much more modern and sophisticated look. The mini-length wedding veil is a fresh take on a very traditional accessory and a simple way to completely transform a wedding day look. The mini-length veil has many options and is perfect for a modern look while adhering to a traditional accessory. Consider a tulle veil with a silk bow or delicate beadwork partnered with a layered waterfall look. 

Drop Earrings

Drop earrings are a design that “drops” just below the earlobe and contain an ornament element such as a gem, bead or charm. They are like extended stud earrings because the embellishment is stationary. Embrace a vintage look using crystal drop earrings, or take on luxury with an intricate beaded design. 

Dramatic Capes

This year, designers are veering from the traditional and getting playful with capes, sleeves and overskirts. These transformable pieces offer a great way to add to your final bridal look. Whether you are looking for an elegant floor-length silhouette or a cropped capelet, capes can add a whimsical feel that can be removed when the mood strikes. 

Less is More

When accessorizing your wedding gown, choose items that will match the aesthetic of your wedding day. Focus on 2-3 statement pieces that adhere to your style and personalize the pieces to accentuate your gown. When accessorizing your bridal dress, remember that less is more.
