Getting married abroad has become increasingly popular. Some couples opt for a private ceremony for two, whilst others take across a group of friends and family. The style of destination bridal accessories you choose will depend on the type of wedding you are having, but for the most part your style can be less formal, and this gives you more flexibility to create the bridal look you want.

Here are some ideas for bridal accessories for a wedding abroad, depending on the style…

Bohemian Bling

Many brides marrying abroad choose simpler dresses. Trying to get a full skirted princess frock to your destination wedding can prove difficult. Less formal dresses, especially one-shouldered or contemporary dresses cut on the bias, can look fabulous with a beach setting.

Why not take a leaf out of Alicia Keys’ bridal style? She wore a fabulous diamond headband which worked perfectly with her Grecian-inspired white dress.

Barefoot Chic

If you are marrying in a tropical setting, why not keep things really simple? Take your inspiration for your bridal accessories from nature. The no shoes look with a brightly coloured real or faux flower in your hair is stunning in its simplicity.

Get Colourful

With a backdrop of white sand and blue sea and sky, you have the ultimate excuse to go crazy with colour. Hot pink works really well. Incorporate some touches of colour in your bridal accessories, such as this pink hair flower, wedding umbrella and gorgeous shoes.
