White "Haute" Pearls: 5 Ways to Wear Them with Your Wedding Dress

Pearl wedding accessories are one of 2021's hottest trends right now.

Not surprising! We love 'em. In fact, we've been designing with them for well over 20 years.

"Pearls have the ability to move seamlessly from a modern, minimalist elopement ceremony, to a glamorous sequel wedding. From bridal hair accessories to jewelry to veils, they just work!"

To help you take advantage of this super hot trend, here are 5 different ways to incorporate pearls as part of your wedding ensemble.

Keep in mind, there is no right or wrong way. Just your way!

5 Ways to Shine in Pearls on Your Wedding day

1) Elevate your bridal look with a beautiful pearl veil to suit your dress and the occasion.

Pearls are versatile so it's no wonder they can work for any style of veil and any number of wedding styles

For example, pair a simple “little white dress” and tulle cape with a  fingertip pearl veil with blusher or pearl birdcage veil for a micro-wedding. Then, consider adding a tulle overskirt plus a cathedral veil with pearl details for your grand entrance at the sequel wedding.

2) Personalize your wedding dress with a flattering pearl belt to make any dress—your dress.

A pearl belt like our Metropolitan Sash or Chanteuse Sash will add texture, dimension and personality to your bridal look. It's a great way to complement a lace pattern, soften a more opulently beaded gown or enhance a simple, modern design without going overboard on the bling. Not to mention, it will cinch you at the waist and make your curves look oh-so-va-va-voom!

Pro tip: Depending on whether you have a short or long torso, make sure you pick the right belt or sash for your body type. Thin belts work best on short torsos and wider designs work best on long torsos. 

3) Embellish your bridal hairstyle or updo with a pearl headband or hair accessories.

Nothing looks prettier, more romantic or more bridal than wedding-ready locks rocking a gorgeous pearl headpiece or pearl hair accessories! 

For example, our Star and Pearl Veil Hair CombHairpins and Headband can be styled in a simple, yet elegant way for a garden brunch elopement. Then, easily glammed up by adding multiple pieces or some crystals for a chic statement look.

Gone are the days when you're limited to pearl studs and strands. Designs are way more glamorous, modern, and dare I say, edgy. Definitely not your grandmother’s pearls!

For example, our edgy modern brides are head over heels for our large pearl hoop bridal earrings while our classic modern brides are falling in love with our delicate pearl crystal post drop earrings and pear shape pearl wedding bracelet.
