Our current favorite Accessories at anna bé
Let’s hear it for the talented Michael Kors who said that “accessories are the exclamation point of a woman’s outfit,” and honestly Mr. Kors, we totally agree. When we’re talking drop dead gorgeous bridal looks, accessories are an important factor that can completely elevate your dress and take it to the next level. And whether your a minimalist or a “more is more” kind of gal, we’ve got something for you in our curated shop of handmade artisan accessories. It was hard to choose just a few favorites, but we’ve compiled a list of some absolute beauties that are perfect for your wedding day.
The Adrienne Veil by Sara Gabriel
If you ask us, nothing says “ultimate bridal accessory” quite like a veil. It’s the picture frame that catches the eye and puts you and your dress front and center. And as for the type of veil, the options are endless! They can be big and dramatic, trailing behind you in a show-stopping effect (thanks Priyanka for showing us how it’s done!). They can also be short and sweet, lacey or sparkly, colorful or minimal. We promise you that no matter your dress and style, there’s a veil for you.
The Adrienne veil by Sara Gabriel is a beautiful piece that features Swarovski crystals and pearls hand stitched along the border, creating an ethereal and glittering glow around you and your dress. Below, we’ve paired it with the lovely “Phillips” gown by Minneapolis based Rose + Williams by Tara LaTour. Phillips’ deep V bodice and flowing a-line skirt in a clean ivory satin creates the perfect opportunity to add a little extra detail with the Adrienne veil. Cut from signature tulle, which has a beautiful draping effect, Adrienne’s fountain-like curves and subtle sparkle act as a picture frame the dress. It doesn’t compete with the dress, but instead enhances it. Perfect for the modern bride who is both a minimalist, but loves to make an entrance.
We’ve also included the Vida duet from Sara Gabriel for a little extra glitz and glam!
The Kennedy Vine by Untamed Petals
When you’re thinking about your bridal look from head to toe, chances are you’ve given some thought to how you might style your hair on the big day. May we introduce you to the Kennedy vine by Untamed Petals. She’s a versatile maverick that can glam up a tousled braid or elevate a red carpet inspired updo. She features freshwater pearls and crystals, lending a little sparkle that looks beautiful against any hair color. She’s also bendable and flexible, allowing you to sculpt her to fit everything from a chignon to loose and wavy curls. And when we’re talking about matching her to different dresses, she pairs beautifully with a sparkly Hayley Paige ballgown and stuns in a minimal Alexandra Grecco sheath.
Juliet Pins by Sara Gabriel
But if a vine isn’t your thing, we’ve got plenty of other ways to go when it comes to dazzling up your ‘do. The Juliet pins from Sara Gabriel showcase antique-style crystals that embody the Art Deco glamour of the 1930s. Imagine these glittering beauties trailing down a romantic braid or scattered around a romantic half-up half-down. The perfect way to add just a little bit of interest without going over the top.
Riley Cape by Theia
Looking for drama? Maybe something unique and non-traditional? Don’t worry, modern and edgy brides of today’s day and age. We’ve got you. Capes are making a strong comeback on the bridal scene and we are here for it. One of our ultimate favorites is the “Riley” cape from Theia. She features dramatic hand-beaded vines that gather at the neck and trickle down towards the shoulders, creating an elegant and elongating look. Yes, it’s different, but we find the sparkling white beads and soft ivory tulle to be just bridal enough that even grandma would approve. Check out how we’ve jazzed up the gorgeous “Elliot” gown by Rose + Williams. While the dress is stunning on its own, the Riley cape lets you make an entrance fit for a queen.
Metal Belt by Romona Keveza
Bridal belts are nothing new. From lovely satin ribbons to beaded sashes, it’s a tried and true look that can style just about any dress. But Romona Keveza has put a modern spin on this traditional staple with her structured gold and silver metal belts. Since they come in different sizes and feature a hidden clasp in the back, the belts hold themselves up without any tacking or sewing necessary. And the best part? They’re an investment piece you will wear long after you say your “I do’s!” From wedding dress to little black dress, this belt will see you through all your most glamorous moments. Look at how stunning and elegant the gold metal belt pairs with the Romona Keveza strapless gown “RK9501” and overskirt.
