Morning ladies! Are you ready for the next instalment of our Colour Clash Style Guide?  We’ve looked at the décor and the details over the past two weeks, but today it’s all about creating the perfect look for you and your bridesmaids!  Our fashion experts Rachel from Luella’s Boudoir, Sinclair from Maids to Measure, and Vicky from Victoria Millésime have picked their favourite pieces embracing the Radiant Orchid trend.

With bright colourful statement accessories and a fun, bold bridal style we chose ‘Astray for our bridal look, a simple flowing strapless Grecian style by Weloveyu at Luella’s Boudoir.  The soft silhouette gives a flattering shape, with luxurious ruching details to the bodice add contemporary style.  Vicky designed a bespoke bejewelled necklace using brightly coloured vintage brooches in rich berry colours which add a nostalgic touch to an otherwise modern look.  Creating something new out of something old is the perfect way to treasure old jewellery from loved ones, especially those who might not be there to celebrate your day.

We decided to have some fun with the bridesmaid’s look and picked a radiant orchid colour which worked perfectly with our other jewel tones.  The clean, sleek silhouette keeps the look grown up and elegant, with the sweeping cowl back adding a touch of glamour.  With such a bold dress, Vicky kept the accessories simple, choosing two organza hairpins to add colour to her glamorous side-swept hairstyle.

Don’t be scared of colour – used properly it can add real wow-factor to your day!  A statement necklace or headpiece is the perfect way to make a statement with your bridal look, and if you’re not quite brave enough to wear it all day then how about adding it to your evening look for added impact?  You can definitely have fun with your bridesmaids look too – colourful dresses are so youthful and fresh! Just imagine a parade of radiant 0rchid beauties walking down the aisle announcing your arrival, now that would create a stir!

After a decade-long career in corporate interior design, I took a giant leap of faith, left the security of an office job, and founded B.LOVED in 2011 as a platform for romantic and beautiful wedding inspiration. Thanks to a whole lot of creativity, hard work and passion, my gamble paid off and B.LOVED became one of the leading wedding blogs in the UK.

You’ll also find me working as an Editorial Stylist, where I design and curate beautiful photoshoots for wedding and lifestyle brands, as well as contributing as a founding member of bridal inspiration hub Aisle Society, and running wedding industry community the B.LOVED Hive from our super pretty base in London. Yep, I definitely have the best job in the world.
