It’s a new year and one step closer to your big day. To help you on your way, Catherine Mee Bridal Accessories and Jewellery have put together a guide to the top wedding accessory trends for 2016.
Colour palettes include beautiful soft blush tones and muted powder blues. Metallics are also gaining popularity and look dreamy mixed with subtle pastel tones.
There are lots of ways to do this, such as adding pretty coloured shoes, fresh flower hair accessories, coloured bags, wedding belts or subtly coloured wedding jewellery.

Acing it in lace
Already a popular choice, lace is going nowhere in 2016. There are many different types and weights to choose from this year, even crocheted lace.
Lace style accessories are also popular, like this intricately detailed hairband and pretty lace covered clutch bag, perfect for adding smaller lacey touches.

Backless dresses are big news this year. To enhance the dramatic effect, we predict that back drop necklaces will be a big hit in 2016!

Feathers are very on trend and can be seen more and more on wedding gowns. If you’re going for a detailed dress, keep accessories simple so that they don’t compete.
If feathery dresses aren’t your thing, add feather accessories to your hair, or for pure vintage glamour, plump for a feather stole or wrap.

The personal touch
Last but not least, the most important trend of 2016 is that your wedding day should reflect you as a couple, allowing your personalities to shine through.
Choose accessories and finishing touches that express your, likes, loves and that tell your story, because after all, this special day is all about you!
