If your current ideas for wedding accessories stretch only as far of ‘something blue’ then you, my friend, have come to the right place. Keep the sentimental token, but you should also have some show stopping accessories to accompany that dress.

Diamonds have forever been a wedding favourite but we’re going to venture a little farther beyond every girl’s best friend and see what else we come across. Wedding accessories aren’t usually at the top of the to-do list so I’ll bet you’ve already got your colour scheme, bridesmaids’ dresses and flowers planned. Use all of this to help guide your accessories choices. If you keep your theme in mind and select accessories that will either compliment or reflect it, all those little details will tie together perfectly.

Scroll on to discover our selection of stylish yet stunning modern wedding day accessories:
