Have you seen my new collection of handcrafted jewelry and modern bridal accessories? Today’s blog post focuses on one of the new additions to the hair accessories category in my shop, the Silver and Blue Crystal Bridal Hair Vine! You might remember this headpiece from my previous blog post about the winter wedding editorial from earlier this year.

This bridal hair vine is one of the most versatile pieces in my new collection because it can be placed anywhere in your wedding hairstyle. With its flexible wire and combs on either end, the possibilities for this wedding hair accessory are nearly endless!

Here are a few ideas to help inspire your wedding hairstyle using a bridal hair vine:
  • Across the back of your updo like the model in the picture
  • Across the front of your forehead for a more bohemian bridal hairstyle
  • As a traditional headband
  • Ask your hairstylist to weave the bridal headpiece through a braided bridal updo

Elegant Bridal Jewelry + Classic Invitations

The only thing I love as much as elegant bridal jewelry is a gorgeous combination of wedding details!

Today I’m excited to share a collection of my favorite photos from a recent styled collaboration with Third Clover Paper! My elegant bridal jewelry made the perfect accent to these classic wedding invitations, establishing a timeless aesthetic that I just can’t get enough of.

My friend Caitlin of Third Clover Paper just unveiled her freshly rebranded business and new line of personalized paper goods. As part of the big reveal, she worked with Red October Photography to create some styled brand photographs. I felt so honored when she asked to feature some of my elegant bridal jewelry and accessories in these pictures.

What I love most about Third Clover Paper’s new collection of paper goods is its timeless aesthetic. Neutral colors and refined fonts take center stage in these designs with just the right amount of colorful accents. They’re the perfect combination of classic and stylish. This is the same style that I evoke in the elegant bridal jewelry that I design, so it felt natural to put our work side-by-side.

Third Clover Paper also offers a variety of customization options for their invitation suites. So, no matter how specific your design idea might be you can make it come to life! (And doesn’t everyone love the option of custom designs?)

Modern Bridal Jewelry Featured by Brides Magazine

My modern bridal jewelry was recently spotted over on the Brides Magazine Instagram page!

I was thrilled to see Brides share two photos from a recent collaboration I did with The Garter Girl, featuring the loveliest bridal style inspiration with a focus on the details. Scroll on to see the “Blushing Bride” and “Something Blue” styles we curated with a group of the best talents in luxury bridal fashion!

The first look Brides picked was a gorgeous assortment of blush and gold wedding details.  Jamie from Marigold & Grey was our expert stylist for the day while Anna of Red October Photography captured each beautiful collection. I love the way Jamie paired my Laurel Earrings with those sparkly Louboutins and a feminine pink and gold satin garter from The Garter Girl!  A blush stationery suite from Ceci New York was the perfect finishing touch.

The second look Brides chose is a modern take on the classic “Something Blue” motif.  The Classic Pearl Necklace from my collection was the perfect choice for this timeless look, paired with the more modern Elle Earrings which feature a cushion cut crystal and teardrop pearl.

The lace-trimmed handkerchief pairs perfectly with the sparkly garter from The Garter Girl. I could see it used as a keepsake for the groom or perhaps hidden inside the bride’s bouquet to catch any runaway tears!

6 Ways to Use Pantone Greenery in Your Wedding

PANTONE Color of the Year 2017 Greenery Wedding inspiration by J'Adorn Designs Custom Jewelry

I’m taking a little break from making custom jewelry and modern bridal accessories today to talk about wedding inspiration!  If you follow me on Pinterest, you know that I love to curate wedding ideas based on styles, themes, and color palettes.  Today I want to show you a few ideas for incorporating Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2017 – Greenery! It’s a medium green that evokes the color of leaves at the height of spring.

1. Invitations & Stationery

Because Pantone Greenery is a brightly saturated color, I recommend using it as an accent rather than focal color in your stationery to maintain an elegant look. I particularly love this invitation suite from Third Clover Paper, which features a green envelope with matching vintage stamps. It’s a gorgeous complement to the classic ivory and gold invitation & RSVP card.

2. Bridesmaids’ Attire

Another great way to add some Pantone Greenery color to your wedding day is with your bridesmaids’ dresses. You can dress all of your attendants in the same shade for a bold on-trend look. Or, if you prefer a less uniform look you may consider adding accent hues like mint and sage to bring depth and variety.

3. Bouquets & Florals

Bringing a touch of Pantone Greenery to your wedding through actual greenery may seem like a no-brainer, but I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention florals! Even if you’re a fluffy white peony enthusiast, you can easily add some lemon leaves or baby hydrangea to the mix for a touch of extra greenery. Trailing vines on a cascading bouquet are another trendy look that you may want to consider!

4. Wedding Garter

If you’re looking for a more subtle way to incorporate Pantone Greenery, consider using it as an accent color in your wedding garter. It’ll be hidden under your dress for most of the day, but it’ll look great in those detail photos from your photographer. You can even customize your garter with a bit of lace from your mom’s wedding dress or another meaningful garment if you order it from The Garter Girl!

5. Groom’s Attire

A green tuxedo or men’s suit is a non-traditional look to be sure. That said, I absolutely adore the look of this green suit from Asos! I can picture the perfect boho-chic wedding styled around this piece. Maybe the bride would wear a greenery crown and an eyelet dress with long, loose waves inspired by 1970s fashion. What do you think?

6. Earrings & Jewelry

Adding Pantone Greenery to the design of your bridal accessories is another way to bring a bit of this trendy color to your wedding day. Whether you opt for a pair of pre-designed earrings like these ones from my shop or choose custom jewelry, you’ll have the added benefit of being able to wear your Pantone Greenery inspired accessories after your wedding day, too! Classic pearl earrings with modern styling pair perfectly with office attire and formal wear. They might just become your favorite piece of jewelry!

If you’re engaged and planning the color palette for your wedding, I want to hear what you think! Is Pantone Greenery on your radar or are you going for a different look? Would you try any of the examples from this post? Tell me what you think in the comments!
