3. Full-Length Chiffon Capes
If you’ve found the perfect wedding dress but think it could do with something a little bit extra, then a cape may be your saviour! From simple sheer overlays to embroidered and bejewelled masterpieces, there’s definitely a cape to suit your gown. Made popular due to their ability to give the effect of a train without all that extra fabric, full-length chiffon capes can make a gown look traditional or extravagant depending on its embellishments.

4. Statement Earrings
Draw on your inner diva for your big day by popping on some beautiful statement earrings! Not only will these stunning jewels help to frame your face with a classic up-do, but they’ll also add that bit of glam you’ve been craving. Many brides choose to change their earrings throughout their wedding day; to have a simple look their grandparents would approve of for their ceremony, but then changing over to some gorgeous drop earrings for their reception. If you want to be the star of the show on your big day, you can certainly rely on some statement earrings to make that happen!

As more brides move away from typical bridal traditions, they have shaped the bridal fashion industry into a place not just for glamour but also comfort. 2018 saw the rise of the ‘chunky sneaker’ in women’s fashion, while the amount of designer sneaker brands continues to rise. Bringing this trend into bridal fashion was not just welcomed but encouraged as millions of brides cried out for a more comfortable option than the classic wedding heel. So embrace your inner Runaway Bride and get comfy on your big day with a sleek pair of white runners, or invest in pair of personalised designer kicks.
