The days of basic, satin bridal shoes, traditional piped veils and your grandmother’s pearls being your only wedding-day accessory options are over–thankfully. Below, all the new bridal accessories of the season you should be considering for your styling shopping list.
Playful acrylic accessories with multi-purpose are a fun take on bridal bags.
Brandon Maxwell champagne box, $1,795, modaoperandi.com.
It’s not always about ivory. The latest color for satin shoes and evening bags is more of a nude, feels more luxe (and also more versatile) and has more of a dusty-rose tint.
Zuhair Murad heels, price upon request, zuhairmurad.com, Jeffrey Levinson satin clutch, $1,550, modaoperandi.com, Tabitha Simmons X Johanna Ortiz satin flats, $745, modaoperandi.com, Charlotte Olympia “Paloma” sandal, $895, charlotteolympia.com.
Piped veils are ultra-traditional and can sometimes feel dated. Raw-edge veils are a safe bet for a subtle romantic feel. All-over embroidered, appliquéd or lace mantillas (which are veils cut in a circular silhouette to hug the shoulders) are just plain stunning and turn the formality of a ceremony into fashion moment.

No need to choose between an ear cuff or a statement chandelier–ear cuffs paired with an embroidered gown is romantic maximalism at its finest.
Your love being “in the stars,” and loving each other “’til the moon and back,” are only some of the romantic yet celestial sweet nothings this chic
Naeem Khan Zodiac clutch, $1,490, naeemkhan.com.
Lucite and opalescent add-ons are a cooler take on crystal extras.
When it comes to Alberta Ferretti’s velvet embroidered mules–whether they be heeled or flat, no matter the color–just say yes.
Alberta Ferretti velvet hand-embroidered mules, $1,175 and flats, $1,090, albertaferretti.com.
Dainty pendants have no place with your wedding gown, unless you’re going for a stacked array of sentimental, petite charms. Necklaces that dangle too far below the collar can create the illusion of a larger bust, and compete with bold earrings. Chokers may be on the way out, but a sleek collar paired with a minimal gown is still unbelievably chic.
Rosantica circle link choker, $539, farfetch.com, Suzanne Kalan diamond choker, $180,000, netaporter.com, Rosantica by Michela Panero “Strobo” crystal embellished choker, $703, matchesfashion.com, Misahara “Koral” choker, $9,500, modaoperandi.com.
Take a pass on tradition and do what feels right for something as sentimental as a ceremony. BAZAAR Bride Ann Brady opted for a hooded cape with fairy-tale vibes for her epic wedding at the New York Public Library.
A sleek box clutch is always chic, but petite pouches, wristlets and mini buckets are a better match for the ’90s slip dresses and the lace sheaths we love.
Oscar de la Renta billard beaded bag, $1,1990, modaoperandi.com, Marni “Pannier” bucket bag, $1,890, matchesfashion.com, Saskia Diez chainmail clutch, $425, netaporter.com, Ganni beaded bag, $315, mytheresa.com.
Floral motifs have a longer shelf life than the clutch of blooms you’ll carry down the aisle.
Jennifer Behr earrings, $875, jenniferbehr.com.

Aquazzura “French Lover Bridal” lace-up booties, $510, aquazzura.com; Sophia Webster “Jojo” bridal heels, $795, sophiawebster.com; Nicholas Kirkwood “Leda” lace pumps, $795, farfetch.com.
Gatsby and Old Hollywood-inspired styling had their heyday. Skip oversized crystal headpieces and opt for something finer–like a grouping of delicate diamond hair pins.
McTeigue & McClelland bridal hair pins, price upon request, mc2jewels.com.
Giovanna Battaglia’s boundary-pushing signature style on the streets made for a flawless series of ultra-luxe bridal looks. Take notes: say yes to a dreamy cape, a fresh take on a crown–and bridal thigh-highs.
