05 Jun Bespoke Wedding Bags To Suit A Summer Ceremony
If you love bags as much as I do then you will undoubtedly want to wear one on your wedding day! Fortunately, as summer rapidly approaches there are a wide range of clutches, wristlets and shoulder bags available which will be ideal for outdoor, warm weather ceremonies. If you feel spoilt for choice, then here are some of my top tips on how to choose the ideal bespoke wedding bag to suit your summer ceremony:
Choose vibrant spectrum colours
A clutch, wristlet or envelope bag finished in a vibrant spectrum colour can evoke a striking fashion statement when placed in contrast with a classically styled wedding dress. If you choose a vibrant summer colour, such as red, fuchsia, or lilac, and purchase a bag and matching heels in these warm weather hues then you can add a bold yet beautiful touch of colour which will turn heads as you walk down the aisle.
Make your bag your something blue
When planning your wedding dress and accessories it is important to ensure you have accounted for your ‘something old, something, new, something borrowed and something blue’. So why not combine these factors into one accessory and make your bag your something new and something blue? In fact, this type of bespoke ‘something blue’ bag has become a popular trend amongst wedding designers; many of whom now stock customisable wedding bags which can incorporate your choice of vintage brooches, buttons and other embellishments in ‘something blue’ hues!
To exude effortless summer sophistication as you celebrate your nuptials, why not take some style inspiration from your floral arrangements? After you have chosen your wedding flowers and table arrangements, simply add a wrist corsage or single stem buttonhole that has been created using the same blooms and affix it onto your preferred clutch or shoulder bag. Incorporating these summer blooms within your wedding attire will elegantly emphasise the unique elements of your wedding’s floral theme.
Create a bespoke bag from family mementos
Bespoke wedding bags are a great way to subtly incorporate nostalgic mementos within your summer ceremony. A simple yet stylish method is to choose a soft white leather bag and adorn it with your choice of personal trinkets. For instance, many brides have begun to create their own versatile drawstring wedding bags using lace or fabric from their mother’s or grandmother’s wedding gowns. These sentimental embellishments enable you to inject your own sense of personality into your wedding accessories.
Opt for metallic detailing
Cool, contemporary metallic accessories are a popular summer 2016 fashion trend. You can encapsulate this sophisticated style within your wedding accessories by choosing a bag with metallic detailing. Whether you prefer clutches and envelope bags, wristlets or shoulder bags, if you know which metallics are best paired with which dress colours you can look amazing on your special day. As a rule, ivory gowns are best paired with gold, pure white dresses will compliment silver and platinum detailing, whilst a diamond white dress will suit all manner of silver, rose gold or yellow gold metallic accessories. Pair your chosen bag with a stunning set of heels with matching metallic detailing for a show-stopping wedding statement!
