Here are some of our top picks for wedding dress styles:


Ball gowns

If you are a fan of royal weddings then this style of wedding dress is the one for you. If you're looking to make an entrance, consider opting for a classic ball gown— and there are plenty of them in the 2022 collections of many wedding dress designers. The best thing about this attention-grabbing silhouette is that it is actually surprisingly versatile and works for most wedding styles. Go full-on Grace Kelly with heavy satin or Elizabethan with billowy sleeves. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn a few heads.

Matching with the beautiful ball gown, check out our Classic collection of jewellery that can adorn your look like nothing else can do.

Ruffles and layers

If ever there's a time to indulge your inner hopeless romantic, your wedding day is it—and it doesn't get more romantic than these frilly, ultra-feminine details. A ruffled and layered skirt adds dimension to a mermaid silhouette. A  full skirt of frothy, cascading ruffles is both whimsical and fashion-forward. If you're on the hunt for a dress with some added flair but don't want the hassle of a full skirt or long train, look no further than a gown with light multi-layered skirt, perfect for twirling without the heft of a ball gown.

To make the dramatic effect of the layering even stronger, opt for jewellery with more details such as our Atalie Earrings and Inga Earrings can enhance the overall look.

Effortless fabrics like tulle and organza give off a gorgeous ethereal vibe without any additional bulk, so you can hit the dance floor without stressing about tripping over your gown or feeling weighed down.

Short Bridal Dresses

If you're going for a very casual wedding vibe or you are just looking for a good excuse to show some leg and a killer pair of shoes, then this 2020/21 wedding dress trend is for you. You could even go all out and have a full-length gown for daytime and a short dress for the evening celebrations, or kick off the celebrations by wearing a short bridal gown for your bridal shower, leaving no one with any doubt who is the bride to be.

Wearing a set of garters in your short wedding dress can adorn the overall look, also to keep the Irish tradition.

Bring on the bling, with some glitz and glitter. A touch of sparkle is nothing new where bridal fashion is concerned. Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments are perfect for the bride who wants to make a big impression, but if you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkles, keep your accessories simple and let your glitzy gown do all the talking.

Align the sparks with some of our sparkling jewellery sets such as Alina Earrings & Pendant, and hair adornments like our Acanthus Headband.

Top trending Wedding Hair Vines This Year
Top trending Wedding Hair Vines This Year

July 30, 2021

Wedding hair vines are very on trend this year, but if you are asking yourself “What’s a wedding hair vine?”, let us explain. Wedding hair vines are long, flexible head pieces made on thin twisted wire that can be shaped to any design required to suit your hairstyle. Wedding hair vines generally don’t have any combs attached to them and can easily be pinned into your hair wherever needed. This gives them the flexibility to be worn with many different hairstyles.
So, how should you wear your wedding hair vine...
First, decide on how you will be wearing your hair; will you be wearing your hair down, in a long loose braid? Hair vines also look fantastic in half up half down hairstyles. Simply secure into the section of your hair that is pinned up, and then gentle curve down through your loose waves. If you are wearing your hair in a loose plait, the hair vine can simply be plaited into your hair as it is done.
As we mentioned hair vines are a very big trend for this year and here are our top selling wedding hair vines so far...
Gold Leaf Wedding Hair Vine
Our delicate Gold Leaf and Freshwater Pearl Headpiece, made from individual gold leaves blended with freshwater pearls and tiny diamanté crystals for a little sparkle.
The Gold Vine is a light and flexible headpiece that can be worn to the side, back or across the top of the head. It is simply attached with tiny alligator style clips hidden beneath the piece.
Full length of adornment 10inch/25cm.

Why are Pearls so associated with Weddings? Bridal Headpieces & Wedding Jewellery

June 19, 2020

Pearls are very often a popular wedding day gift for a bride, but why are pearls associated with weddings, you may be thinking!
Nadine Pearl Cluster Wedding Hair Clip
Thanks to their fabulous shimmering iridescence, these organic little gems have always been highly prized throughout history, in fact, Cleopatra is said to have dissolved a pearl in a glass of wine before drinking it, simply to show Marc Antony that she could consume the wealth of an entire country in just one meal, and the ancient Greeks associated the pearl with love, marriage, and marital harmony. During the crusades knights wore pearls on the battlefield, believing they held magic powers that would protect them from harm. In the 1500s pearls were so highly regarded that countries across Europe passed laws forbidding anyone apart from nobility to wear them. And even to this day, they are still a popular choice for royalty, especially at weddings. Queen Elizabeth II wore them at her wedding and over in the USA, Jacqueline Bouvier wore a strand the day she became Mrs Kennedy, which was almost royalty.
Are you considering making pearls part of your wedding? When it comes time to make your pearl selection, what do you need to know? Let us help...
