How to make your big day sparkle

We talk wedding bling and emebellished shoes with high street favourite Next

The 1920s are back and roaring this fashion cycle, and nowhere can that trend be more beautifully referenced than in wedding wardrobes. A day tailor-made for classic elegance mixed with daring decadence, you’ll find that some of this season’s accessories and bridal shoes in particular have a delicately old-school glamour.

For those looking to have an alternative bit of red carpet elegance for their big day, soft t-bar shoes can be an excellent choice for a non-conventional bride.

The t-bar has often been dismissed as a little school-girlish or old-fashioned. Yet this spring/summer it has undergone a charming reinvention. On top of this, it is also an extremely comfortable way to wear heels on a day that usually requires a lot of standing, walking, dancing and non-stop socializing.

In this season’s on-trend patent leather, in a nude or soft beige, these shoes look excellent with floaty skirts that just lick over the knee. Really unique and effervescent, a wonderful choice for women who want a big day with a reto style.

For those looking to go all out and tone down the 1920s feel, you can still channel the decadence with drop earrings and huge jewels are also on the up. Long earrings and dangling pendants are again back, as designers get excited about Baz Luhrmann’s upcoming Great Gatsby film remake. Pearl tone clutches with gorgeous embellishment, rhinestone necklaces and cuffs all make it into our lust-list of wedding accessories.

Conservative ‘classic’ bridal accessories – single studs, no necklace or plain chain – are a bit dour and unadventurous for 2012. Whilst bangles or wrist accessories remain a bit unnecessary – mostly because the ring is the main hand attraction, and there’ll probably be a bouquet in there somewhere too – necklaces and headpieces or fascinators are a great inspiration.

Embellished feathers with extended jeweled protrusions and flowers can be a delightful alternative to a veil – more playful, with more personality and a lot less hassle. This season beading and detail is really in – and look to incorporate that into the accessories rather than the dress itself.


I just love these Ivory Lace Vintage T-Bar Court Shoes from Next!
