Floral accessories especially garlands have always been associated with Asian weddings, however the past year floral accessories have become a big trend for the modern weddings, mehndi nights and for gifts for the bridesmaids.
Floral jewellery is being more creative and imaginative than just wearing a nice matching costume jewellery for your weddings clothes, it shows individuality and originality, although it look delicate to wear, it does look amazing once worn and adorned on the Bride and bridesmaids.
When it come to choosing your floral jewellery and accessory, bright colours always look best as it always defines the bright and bold statement of Asian weddings, and having a simple design works best too, as Asian clothes are always full of embroidery and something too bold, bulky and big would ruin the outfit. But none the less, these floral jewellery would make a great impact on any type of wedding or themed wedding.
As shown in the photos on the above, the left photo have used red roses with small pearls, gives it the contemporary with the traditional, very Jodhar Akbar with the small pearls.
On the right, that is the pink roses with large ivory pearls, this type would look great for engagements, yet will also look great with red roses too.
With ordering these types of garlands for your wedding, you know you won’t be weighed down or hidden away behind the large flowers which are commonly seen in the Indian tv serials and Bollywood films.
Floral Hair Pieces
Accessorizing has to be the best way to glam up any outfit, even Gok Wan would agree with me too, and no doubt 2011 was a big year for floral head band and floral head wreaths, and i’m sure it will carry throughout 2012 summer weddings.
The Duke and Duchess’ wedding has been a major influence on many recent weddings, where trend for sleeves, lace, white bridesmaid dresses and head wreaths for flower girls.
For the Brides that love fresh flowers, it is best to use small buds for the head wreaths and we know kids like to run around everywhere; in the above photo, I have made one for a customer who wanted one made from silk flowers, I used small rose foam, beads and leaves too. It still gives a good effect as it look delicate and simple designs are best for children.
Adding a single flower instantly adds simplicity, timeless and elegance. Always add a complementing colour to whatever outfit you’re wearing, having a single and large flower, always adds a bold statement and whatever fresh or faux flower you wear, will always look great and feminine.
Having a cluster of flowers to complement those outfits is for those fashion forward brides and maybe if you have a bigger budget to spend on your bridesmaids. This will always be a classic such as when worn within a french roll as pictured above right and below too.
The above right photo I have used fresh roses and beads for decoration, this is a great floral hair piece for the Mother’s of the bride and groom, as they would love to make that extra effort for the wedding day, and love to have cluster of flowers in their hair.
For those who like to be different, experiment with colours and maybe have a higher budget for the bridesmaids, the floral hair piece pictured below is just for you. The standard colours that everyone goes for is red, pink and white, why not be different from other weddings and choose bright and bold colours? It adds boldness and statement to your wedding and I’m sure many will remember your wedding day for being different. Having a bright and bold colour to your hair piece instantly looks style-savvy and brightens up british summertime.
Floral Hand Jewellery
Floral hand jewellery has become a big trend especially for mehndi parties, brides and bridesmaids, it takes ethnic jewellery to a whole new level of ‘exoticness’!
Also known as ‘Gajra’, these Asian floral jewellery has been around for years, and loved by women of all ages for that special occasion.
As these are usual made by simple flowers and look more fuller, I have taken the concept and made it more contemporary with the added material of beads, pearls and diamonds, instantly adds a feminine touch to the floral bracelet and will definitely look good on the photos, as Asian families do love to take many, many photos!
For that unique Bollywood themed wedding, fashion forward, trendy brides, then these finger bracelets are a must for you! Forget about those standards hand bracelets you see everywhere, be different, individual and creative! These hand corsages are ultra glam and modern and everyone will be wanting one and following the new trend!
Sticking to small rose buds, or a single flower, these floral hand jewellery will still look sophisticated by wearing a matching or complimentary colour with your outfit.
The first photo shows simplicity as its best, the orange gerbera strikes out with the sparking hand bracelet, and any girl would love to wear one for that special occasion. The second photo is a full rose bud bracelet with pearls and a ring, is a bit more delicate yet still looks good when its worn.
Although these pieces are only worn the once, they can be preserved by drying to be treasured for that momentum day, and just shows how creative you can be when wearing floral jewellery to suit your outfits, theme and style. I do hope have given you some great ideas and advice for your weddings and other occasions, let’s get this floral jewellery trend rolling!
