The boom in barn weddings has made country brides of many of us.
Whether you’ve got a new found love affair with all things rustic or you’re a country gal born and bred, these are the must-have accessories for you!
If you’re a country bride, you will love bouquets that have a wilder look, favouring these to the more compact and round arrangements. Create this look by using a wide range of flowers in different sizes – both for the size of the flower head and the length of the stems. You’ll end up with a slightly trailing, slightly wild effect with a real mix of statement blooms and supporting wildflowers and greenery – beautiful!
These shoes are subtle and showy in equal measure thanks to their understated, natural shade and statement rose embellishments. With a pretty peep-toe too, don’t be afraid to hitch up your gown and show these beauties off when you hit the dance floor! Struggling to choose your first dance? You’re bound to find ‘the one’ in this list of 40 classic first dance songs.
Pearls are a timeless choice for any bride, but the almost floral design of these clustered pearl earrings makes them a beautiful choice for a country bride. Not too glitzy but still ever so glamorous, they’ll make you feel every bit the beautiful bride on your big day.
Your natural surroundings are always a brilliant place from which to take inspiration. We love this pretty hair comb, which features leaf and flower designs given a golden, almost autumnal, glow by the gold wire and amber coloured beads.
Lace has long been a favourite for all things bridal – gowns, shoes, veils… Why not introduce it into more of your accessories, like your bridal clutch bag, too? If you don’t want to go all-out lace, why not try an accessory with a single lace motif instead, like this gorgeous option.
Simple and sweet, slip a few of these wheat and bird hair pins into your bridal hairstyle for a touch of instant country chic!
Fancy an alternative to a traditional floral bouquet? Enter the new range of wheat sheaf bouquets from Shropshire Petals, available in a range of sizes and colours for you and your maids. There are even buttonholes for your groom and groomsmen, too! We think they are the ultimate in authentic rustic style for the country bride.
Another nature-inspired accessory, this pretty headpiece from Ivory & Co oozes glamour and country vibes in equal measure.
While many brides will opt for heels, flats can absolutely be as fabulous. Just take this pretty sandal from Emmy London, for example, in a soft rose gold with dainty floral beading – we don’t just love these for the country bride, we love them for all brides! You could even step straight from the aisle to honeymoon in these…
Another elegant option, this clutch bag has simple floral and foliage motifs secreted within the lace. If you want accessories to tie into your theme but not be too in your face, lace designs like this are definitely the way to go!
Often heralded as the accessory that will make you feel like a bride, veils remain popular even with the least traditional of brides. Choose any length you like and give your veil a charming country style with scalloped lace edging. It’s the only time you’ll get to wear one, so why not?!
