Bridal Accessories for Classic Lace Gowns


The classic lace gown has always been a staple in bridal and here are a few options for bridal accessories.

From Downton Abbey to Princess Kate’s iconic wedding gown, British elegance has made a resurgence in bridal style.

Head to toe lace gowns, lace sleeves and even high necklines covered in lace have been a steady trend. These styles have been seen all over Spring Bridal 2015.

The classic lace gown has an heirloom appeal to it that seems to transcend fads and trends. When choosing your bridal accessories for this look, embrace the vintage inspiration.


All Over Lace

If your wedding gown is all over lace with a clean neckline, like this Lela Rose gown, try to stay within that old-world feeling.

Bridal accessories with pearl details are a perfect match for a lace gown. But do not go too over the top with a lot of bling, keep it classic and elegant.

Also, pay attention to the tone of the metal. What we love about Ben-Amun Bridal is the antique silver finish which gives the pieces a vintage look.

For this look, we would pair it with Bridal Crystal Pearl Drop Earrings, Bridal 4 Row Pearl and Crystal Sweetheart Bow Bracelet and Vintage Style Crystal Sparkling Night Necklace.

These pieces work nicely together, with out being a matching set. You could mix these pieces in with a true vintage heirloom from your grandmother’s jewelry box and have your something borrowed.


Lace Sleeves

There is something very romantic about a long lace sleeve on a bridal gown. Princess Kate wowed the world in her long sleeve lace gown designed by Sarah Burton. Kate Middleton wasn’t the first royal bride to cover her arms in lace (Princess Grace of Monaco).

Marchesa’s Spring 2015 Bridal collection refreshed the lace sleeve with light and flowing silhouettes.

Let the sleeves and lace steal the show and do not over accessorize. No need for a bracelet or necklace, just a great pair of earrings will suffice.

If you want to keep it classic with pearls, try the Small Bridal Crystal and Pearl Drop Earring or Bridal Crystal and Pearl Drop Earring.

High Lace Necklines

Another gorgeous lace trend that we are seeing is higher necklines. The scalloped finish of the lace on this Oscar de la Renta gown is an accessory in itself. The sheer lace on the short sleeve and chest add a modern twist to a classic style.

Again, skip the necklace, it’s only going to compete with the beautiful details of the lace. Do play up the elegance and glamour with a sparkling earring and bracelet pairing. We recommend our most popular cluster earring, the Crystal Floral Cluster Bridal Earring and Bridal Floral Crystal Bracelet.
