As a bride, you deserve to feel like the most beautiful woman in the world as you walk down the aisle. Picking the right wedding accessories is an important part of creating a beautiful wedding look.


What are some of the mistakes you should try to avoid when choosing your bridal accessories?


Read on and find out more.


  • Mismatching metals. This is less of a rule currently, but if you are aiming for a classic bridal look, you might want to make sure that all of the metals you are wearing match. This should include not only the jewelry you are wearing, but all the accessories you have paired with your dress, including your shoes, your purse, and any other accessory you are wearing (including the bouquet wrap).

  • Over accessorizing. Given what a special and unique moment this is we understand that it is easy to get carried away. However, there is a point where “glamorous” becomes “over the top”. For instance, if you are wearing long statement earrings, consider skipping a bridal necklace. If your dress is intricate, keep your accessories more minimal. And if you are wearing any colored gemstones, make sure they match or compliment your other accessories.

  • Not properly highlighting your hair accessories. A pretty bridal hair accessory can be a game changer when creating the perfect bridal look.   However, with bridal hair accessories, there is also the risk incorporating them incorrectly. For example, if you want to wear an intricate hair comb and keep your hair down be sure you ask the advice of your hairstylist to make sure you create a balanced, elegant look! Opting for a headband?  Look at lovely updos that will compliment and let your hairpiece shine in the spotlight.

4 Luxurious Items That Will Instantly Upgrade Your Wedding Look

May 5th, 2019

It doesn’t matter what kind of wedding you want – a ballroom event, a casual rustic-chic gathering, a glossy-magazine-worthy Big Day or a Boho backyard party.

In the end, all brides want one thing: to feel amazing on what is meant to be one of the single most important, life-changing, and romantic days ever.

How can you bring that feeling into your wedding look, no matter what style you’re going for?

We have rounded up four luxurious items that will instantly upgrade your wedding look and make you feel drop-dead-gorgeous as you walk down that aisle. Read on and find out more.

  • A tiara. Of all the accessories a bride could wear, nothing says “I just stopped by on my way to the Palace” like a tiara does. There’s something so romantic and fairytale-like about tiaras that it is really no wonder that so many brides opt for this kind of accessory – year in and year out, regardless of what current wedding trends are dictating that season.
  • A simple pearl necklace. You can’t beat this: it’s sophisticated and timeless, one of the most beautiful accessories a woman can wear. It works with ultra-elegant wedding dresses and Boho-chic designs alike. Pearls always seem to be in style no matter what type of wedding you want, and they complement any skin tone and complexion. In other words, it is a universally beautiful piece you will always appreciate – and most likely, a piece you will wear beyond your wedding day!
  • A pair of statement earrings. There’s something almost magical about the way a beautiful pair of earrings frames the luminous face of a bride walking down the aisle – so if your dress is simple and if you don’t plan on going “extra” on your necklace, a pair of statement earrings can upgrade your look in an instant. And oh, my, how amazing it will make you feel!
  • A crystal hair comb. Not a big fan of tiaras and headbands? That’s OK – you can always wear a crystal hair comb. This low-key accessory will turn a simple French twist or low bun into a work of art – which is precisely what you need for your Big Day!

What Is the Best Type of Gemstone for Your Wedding Jewelry?

April 7th, 2019

When it comes to your bridal look, you want to make sure you feel nothing less than fabulous.

Why?

Because you deserve this. Your wedding is a very important moment in your life and wanting to look really great is but a natural inclination. Obviously, your wedding jewelry plays quite the role in all of this.

How to choose the predominant gemstone in your wedding jewelry, though?

We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

  • Diamonds. By far one of the most popular precious stone, especially for brides, diamonds have something very unique about them: they look delicate, but they are a truly strong material. Maybe this is why so many women love them: diamonds represent, at their very core, the essence of femininity, a magical combination of grace and power.
  • Pearls. Some of you might be superstitious about this, but pearls should not be regarded as a “bridal enemy”. Plenty of brides wear them, actually! And truly, you have a million reasons to love them too. Pearls look elegant and graceful while maintaining an air of naturalness and simplicity that is hard to equal. Plus, pearls will never go out of fashion: they are just as popular today as they were when your own grandmother got married.
  • Colored gemstones. Who’s to say you can’t wear colored jewelry on your wedding day? A ruby-endowed piece of jewelry will look fantastic on darker skin tones, and a piece of emerald can connect you with the lively nature of a spring or summer wedding. And if you want to bring your Something Blue into your wedding look, you can totally do that too – and sapphires are one of the best ways to do it. Elegant and unique, colored gemstones will add a touch of energy to your bridal look, helping you truly stand out from the crowd.
  • No gemstones. Yes, you read that right. You can always opt for a very minimalist style that only features the precious metals and nothing more. With Meghan Markle proving that minimalism is very in, more and more brides opt for it – and oh, my, can it look gorgeous in its simple elegance!

4 Essentials to Keep in Mind When Searching for the Right Wedding Accessories

March 31st, 2019

We bet you have imagined your wedding processional at least a thousand times since you got engaged!

And we also bet that looking absolutely picture-perfect was part of every scenario you made up – so it is perfectly natural that you actually want to make that happen.

How to pick the right wedding accessories, though?

We have gathered the top 4 essentials to keep in mind when searching for the perfect wedding accessories – so read on and find out more.

28-diamond-necklace-white-gold-2ml

  • It’s all about your personal style. If you’re not the kind of woman who wears a lot of jewelry, you shouldn’t do this on your wedding day just because that’s what other brides did on their wedding days. Instead, you should embrace your own personality and personal style and go with it on your wedding day too. After all, the main idea here is to shine and still reflect who you are – so don’t sway too far away from your own personal style.
  • You don’t have to wear everything. Just because some brides wear tiaras, it doesn’t mean you want one too. And just because other brides wear both necklaces and earrings, it doesn’t mean you have to do too. Pick the category of accessories that truly represents you and your style – because, as mentioned above, this is one of the absolute basics of a wedding style that embraces you.
  • Your neckline matters. The wedding dress’ neckline and your jewelry should complement each other, not make it look like you just have too much going on with your entire bridal look. For instance, a sweetheart neckline will go really well with a dainty necklace, a straight neckline can go perfectly with a statement necklace, and a high-neck neckline will probably need no necklace (and a very dainty pair of earrings).
  • You don’t have to spend a fortune. Really, you don’t. Of course, you can invest in jewelry and accessories you will wear both on your wedding day and beyond that – but even so, if you just want something luxurious and pretty for your Big Day, you can always go for gently used pieces or even rental pieces.

How to Find the Best Vintage Wedding Dress?

March 24th, 2019

Buying a vintage wedding dress is an amazing idea – and from many points of view, as you will read later on.

Why would you do it? And maybe even more importantly, how to make sure you do it right?

We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

52-bridal-jewelry-dangle-diamond-earrings-white-gold-4ml

  • Start with the right mindset. A lot of brides associate vintage wedding dresses with budget savings – but that’s not entirely true. Sure, there might be steals here and there – but a good vintage wedding dress will most likely cost a bit more than a new one. Why? Because it’s like good wine: the longer it stays beautiful and sophisticated, the more valuable it is. On the other hand, however, it is important to note that if you decide to resell the dress, you will almost definitely get an equal price to what you paid for it – if not more, actually.
  • Do buy in person. There are a million reasons to do this. For starters, you want to be able to see the dress in person, you want to touch it, and ultimately, you want to put it on as well. Even more, seeing the dress in person allows you to better assess whether or not it is a true vintage designer piece or not.
  • Know how to distinguish between the different decades. Like good wines, older gowns are more expensive – so it’s important for you to be able to determine what decade your dress pertains to. This becomes even more important if you are keen on having a wedding inspired by a particular decade – such as the 60s, the 80s, or even the Roaring Twenties.
  • Keep your options open. We know you are set on wearing a specific type of dress at your wedding. But one of the main ways to make sure you wear a gown that truly fits you is to be open minded, actually – especially when it comes to vintage dresses, where options tend to be a bit more limiting and where you need to keep an eye open to spot that one gown that makes you feel fantastic.

4 Easy Ways to Save Money on the Big Day

March 17th, 2019

Most people dance around this, but we like to tell it like it is: weddings can cost a lot of money. The dress, the venue, the décor, the cake – they can all add up to sums of money you might not have even considered before you started actually planning the Big Day.


Under these circumstances, it makes perfect sense that you want to save money anywhere you can on your wedding – and even more than that, you want to save money and make sure you still have the wedding of your dreams.


What are some of the most important tips to keep in mind in this respect? Here they are:

bridal-jewelry-bezel-diamond-bracelet-white-gold-56l


  • Consider a mid-week or daytime wedding. The more “offseason” and the farther away from Saturday evening your wedding is, the more likely it is that you will score better deals in terms of the venue, the décor, the food, and so on. The reason this happens is because vendors are less busy on these days and times of the day, so it is likely that they will be happy to offer you a discount.

  • Opt for simple greenery. Not only is this a really, really popular wedding décor element right now, but simple greenery can also be absolutely stunning in terms of how it makes a wedding look. Even more, greenery is the kind of décor element that can really save you a lot of money, as it is frequently much less expensive than actual blooms.

  • Skip the favors. Truth be told, nobody will even notice they’re not there. Sure, showing guests your appreciation is really nice, but most people don’t actually care about the nicely wrapped cookies and the fridge magnets with your engagement photo on them. If you want to, turn your candy bar into a “favor bar” by offering people the option to pack away some of the goodies.

  • Consider rental and slightly used décor and accessories. You might not want to do this with your wedding dress (and that’s totally fine), but you can still do it with your décor and with your jewelry. Why spend a ton of money on something that will only be worn or used once, when you can save the money (and maybe add it to your honeymoon fund)?

How to Personalize Your Wedding Look

March 10th, 2019

Your wedding look is about more than just the dress, the hairdo, or the flowers you hold in your hand walking down the aisle towards the two most romantic words of your life: I Do.

It’s about who you are, the message you want to send out, the statement you want to make, the memories you want to create. It is about you and your love story.

How to personalize your wedding look, though?

What are some elements to include in your bridal look to make it truly special?

Read on and find out more.

  • Look beyond the price tag of the dress. It’s not about how much you pay for the dress – it is about how it embraces your personality. For some, this might be a very expensive designer dress that has just been presented on the world’s runways. For others, it might be the dress your mother wore on her wedding day or a simple white dress you bought from an evening gown store in the mall. It’s all about who you are and what you want to reflect with your bridal look.
  • Bring in a touch of sentimentalism. This could be given by the fact that you have chosen to wear your mother’s dress, or maybe just the veil. Maybe you took a little piece of her dress to use it as a bridal bouquet wrap. Or maybe you used your father’s tie for that. Maybe you sew your mom’s and your grandmother’s name on the inside of the dress. Or maybe you wrote a message from your dad on the soles of your shoes. It could be anything – as long as it brings a touch of meaning into your bridal look, it will be perfect.
  • The accessories matter. Don’t let yourself trapped into the trends when it comes to the accessories you want to wear for your wedding day. You need accessories that really speak about you – and this might be a really opulent clutch purse or a pair of stunning stud earrings. Whatever it is, be sure it suits you!

Looking for a less expensive alternative to buying new jewelry for the wedding day? Contact Adorn and come see our stunning rental and gently used pieces of bridal jewelry and accessories. With us on your side, you will look nothing less than fabulous on your wedding day – and all for a modest price that won’t break the bank!

Want to Lose Weight before the Wedding? Here Are Some Tips!

March 3rd, 2019

Your wedding day is such a special moment in your life – so it’s really easy to understand why you want to look at your very best. If weight loss is among your bridal look goals, though, you want to make sure you do this the right way – because, as you will see, it’s the only feasible way.

What are the crucial tips to keep in mind when you want to lose weight as a future bride? Read on and find out more.

  • Don’t rush. Yes, your wedding is your final weight loss goal – but rushing into losing weight in a very short amount of time is completely unhealthy. You are already going through a lot with the wedding and the planning – don’t put even more stress on your body and on your mind by trying to lose weight on fast forward.
  • Work out. This is not just for the wedding or for the weight loss. This is for YOU. Working out will not only help you shed those extra pounds, but it will also help you focus better, it will help you fight the wedding planning stress, and it will help you be happier in general. In the end, your wedding planning is a journey – and working out will definitely help make this better!
  • Eat healthy fats. Contrary to the popular belief, fats are not an enemy (and no, carbs aren’t either as long as they are complex and release energy slowly). Good fats (like salmon, avocado, and olive oil) are excellent for weight loss. Plus, they will help you get that shiny hair and skin all brides want on their wedding day!
  • Accept your beauty. Every woman is beautiful, no matter the size or shape. Love yourself as you are now and learn to love yourself on the way to success as well. It’s truly key to losing and maintaining the weight. But more importantly, it’s essential to being happy. Be kind to yourself – you are absolutely stunning anyway you are!

Looking for wedding accessories that won’t break the bank, but will surely WOW everyone at your wedding? Come visit Adorn and take a look at the fantastic options we offer – for rental, or for purchase. These gorgeous pieces are here to accessorize you on your wedding day and make you feel drop dead gorgeous!

3 Wedding Trends You Might Want to Leave Behind Now

February 24th, 2019

Wedding trends come and go – and, in the end, what you want is to steal inspiration from them and adopt them to reveal your own unique style as a bride. There is absolutely no rule in any book to say that if something is ultra-popular one year, you absolutely have to include it in your wedding day.

Even more, there’s nobody to say that once popular, a wedding trend will continue to linger on forever – or that you are completely not allowed to adopt it if it’s out of style, for that matter.

That being said, what are some of the wedding trends you might want to leave behind if you want to plan a wedding with a very fresh appeal?

We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

97-pearl-diamond-earrings-2ml

  • Going over the top with everything. 2018 was a year of opulence in the wedding world – and oh, my, it looked glorious! As Meghan Markle set the standards for many weddings and many years to come, though, we are bound to see a lot more simplicity in the wedding world – so you might want to leave behind the idea that you have to be over the top with everything wedding-related. It is, of course, a matter of preference – so if you want a big wedding with intricate décor and over the top elements, go ahead and do that!
  • Ultra-dewy makeup for the eyes. Looking shiny and radiant is perfect for the Big Day (and, well, let’s be honest, every other day of your life). But when it comes to your eyelids, you might want to stick to mattes and slight shimmers – they are more flattering, and they tend to stay so even after all the crying (which you are bound to do on your wedding day, trust us on this one).
  • Cacti and succulents for the bouquet. Yes, we will admit they look amazing. But the sad fact about them is that they have been so popular with brides that their power to be unique is rapidly wearing out. Again, if you absolutely love succulents, you should feel more than free to include them in the Big Day.

How to Pair Your Wedding Gown’s Neckline with Your Hairdo

February 17th, 2019

When it comes to pulling together the perfect wedding look, it’s all about the details. Little things can determine whether or not your look comes together into something harmonious. One thing you might not have thought about yet—do you know how to pair your wedding gown’s neckline with your hairdo? If not, have no fear, we have some tips for you.

Tiffany-Bride

  • Strapless wedding dresses work with almost anything. Ideally, you want to create balance between the bare shoulders (and bare back) and leave your hair down. However, depending on how intricate the design of the bodice is, you might also want to pull your hair up – or leave it in a half-up half-down hairdo. Strapless wedding gowns are among the most versatile options in terms of the hairdos they can work with, so you’ve got lots of options here!
  • Off the shoulder wedding gowns look absolutely elegant and romantic. However, you have to pay attention to them because leaving your hair completely down might make you feel like too much is happening around your shoulders. You can either pull your hair up in romantic updos (e.g. a subtly braided updo with a few floating curls), or you can leave it swept to the side (a side braid, a side bun, or even a side pony tail, for example). However you decide to pull it back, leaving your shoulders and décolletage open and on display works best with this style of bodice.
  • Boat neck wedding dresses are really sophisticated and elegant, and the key here lies in keeping your hair away from the base of the neck, where the boat neckline starts. There are a million lovely ways to pull your hair up – and, depending on the actual design of the dress, you can land on something that’s either very romantic, like a messy bun with a few curls escaping, or very polished, like a clean chignon.
  • V-necks wedding gowns are all about delicacy and femininity, so the hairstyle should suit that vibe. Leaving your hair down or pulling it in a curled half-up half-down hairdo are both popular options. You can also go for an oversized side bun, or, if the dress allows for it, a slightly messy side braid, which will look really romantic and feminine with a more casual, rustic-chic wedding dress.
