Stylish Wedding Inspiration | Our Favourite Bridal Accessories for 2022

9th February 2022

Ah Valentine’s, one of our favourite times of the year… especially for our beautiful Brides-To-Be! It’s the perfect time for romance, spoiling and enjoying a few little luxuries. Love is truly in the air and with the promise of spring just around the corner, we think there’s no better time to get comfy with your favourite coffee, open up your notebook and take a little time out to indulge in a dose of wedding inspiration!

Perhaps you’ve already said yes to the dress, or maybe you’re still searching for ‘the one.’ We love thecollection of gorgeous gowns hitting the catwalk this season, but what bridal look would be truly complete without a stylish selection of accessories?! Bringing your look to life is all in the details, so we’ve hand-picked our favourite bridal accessories for 2022 – all sure to add a touch of style and that all important ‘wow’ factor you your special day…

1. EMBROIDERED VEILS & CAPES

No bridal season is complete without an all-important wedding accessory… veils! On catwalks around the world, these elegant, delicate pieces were ever present for the new Spring/Summer season. In previous years, this classic bridal accessory has needed a style upgrade, one that could bring veils to the forefront of modern bridal fashion… and that upgrade has come in the form of embroidery. From Marchesa Notte and Pronovias to Naeem Khan, truly gorgeous floral, lace-trimmed veils were featured across the globe during Bridal Fashion Week, and they couldn't be more perfect for spring and summer! Along with floral embroidery, brides are choosing to add a classic and personalised touch to their veils with beading, names, phrases, lace, and sequins – perfect for an indie or boho themed wedding! We particularly like the beautiful Rosyn Veil from BHLDN and the delicate creations from Halifax based Eden Keshia Bridal. But this stylish trend doesn’t stop there…

Capes are set to be a huge feature at weddings in 2022 - adding a soft, stylish touch to your bridal look. Along with veils, many brides are personalising their capes with floral additions, lace, and beads. We love these capes from Wildest Dreams Bridal, and for the colourful Bride, take a look at this stunning piece from La Voile Rose.

2. BRIDAL JACKETS

Calling all rock ‘n’ roll brides… One of the coolest wedding trends for 2022 is the continued rise of the Bridal Jacket! From stylish, personalised denim to ultra-chic cropped leather. If your wedding theme is a little less formal or features an indie/boho/urban vibe then these trendy accessories are perfect for you! Featuring a host of customised options from hand-painted to embroidered, beaded to fringed.

We particularly love this season’s bridal jackets, not only for their contemporary style, but also for their versatility – drape yours over your beautiful wedding gown (and nail those picture-perfect poses) or opt for a personalised selection of jackets for your bridal party! Not only will you and your girls be looking bang on trend, but you can wear these beauties over and over again. The perfect well-loved wedding keepsake that’s fashionable and sustainable.

There are a whole host of suppliers jumping on this custom trend from Etsy faves Nikki Whiston Inks and Niamh Designs to Be More Unicorn’s beaded and tassel designs. Top tip: Do bear in mind that as with most custom wedding accessories, your jacket will take time to design and create, so be sure to order yours well in advance of the big day.

3. LUXURY PURSES

One often overlooked bridal accessory is the bridal purse! To ensure you have a safe and stylish place for all your wedding day essentials (lippy, phone, tissues, and hair pins at the ready), why not treat yourself to a pretty purse that’s not only lightweight and trendy, but also a stylish accessory you can use and enjoy long after your special day?!

Also consider that your purse is likely to make an appearance in at least a few wedding photos, so you’ll certainly want it to compliment your look. We’ve found a gorgeous selection of purses, from understated cross-bodies to luxury, embellished clutches. Some of our favourites include:

  • Lulu’s – Mirror Intuition Embroidered Clutch
  • ASOS – Valentino Crossover Tassel Bag
  • Oliver Bonas – Pearl Embellished Clutch
  • BHLDN – Torelle Bag
  • Etsy – Love Fox Designs Personalised Clutch
  • Mulberry – Classic Grain White Clutch
  • True Decadence – Beaded Vintage-Inspired Clutch

4. BRIDAL PYJAMAS

Let’s get pretty and practical… time to talk bridal PJs! Bridal party robes and PJ sets have become incredibly popular for the morning of the wedding and hen parties over the last couple of years and is another big feature in 2022. Yet it can be tricky to source pretty, high quality bridal-worthy pyjamas to suit your style and budget. That’s why we’ve done our research and found some truly stylish options to add a touch of comfy class to your PJ needs!

A pretty set of pyjamas or robe will not only look gorgeous in your wedding photographs, but also make a wonderful gift for your bridesmaids. Whether you're searching for a classic set, simple shorts and tee, luxury gown, or a lace-trimmed robe, we’ve got you covered:

5. HAIR ACCESSORIES

No bride would be ready to walk down the aisle without a little embellishment in her hair! We believe that your hair accessory is what truly ties your wedding look together. Whether you’re a boho, modern, indie, or classic bride, hair accessories are simply a must for your special day… Think jewellery your hair—what’s not to love?!

For classic brides, we recommend choosing an understated headband, comb, or simple tiara, all timeless and chic options that pair beautifully with veils of any length (browse our veil recommendations above)! For the boho bride, this season’s colourful flower crowns, hairpins, hair vines, or clips with blossoms or leaf details are the perfect addition. Take a look at these bridal crown styles from Brides.com for some modern and bold design ideas! We adore this floral piece from Olga Delice and this celestial inspired vine from Debbie Carlisle. Opt for a statement hairpiece adorned with precious stones or feathers to add a touch of glamour to your outfit! Whilst sleek, sculptural pieces in classic silver, gold or rose gold suit both modern and minimalist bridal tastes.

6. BRIDAL JUMPERS, CARDIS & COVER-UPS

This season sees the return of stunning bridal jumpers, cardigans, and cover-ups, all sure to add style and warmth to your wedding day! As more brides prioritise minimal, more intimate celebrations in natural settings, relaxed bridal fashion is becoming a top choice for 2022. Choose from chic bridal sweaters, knitted boleros, satin shawls or elegant wedding cardigans made from luxury fabric to suit your personal style.

Planning a less formal wedding this year? Relaxed fit jumpers are the perfect choice for the boho/rustic bride, whilst understated cardigans are a classic, elegant choice. Take a look at our bridal jumper, cardigan, and cover-up favourites below:
