Everyone has a few must-have items that they’re currently obsessed with. For some of you fabulous brides, it might be your gorgeous bridal shoes and jewelry, or it might even be that stylish decor you plan on displaying somewhere during your ceremony or reception. In every issue you can find products and trends the Contemporary Bride staff currently loves. Here are five of our favorite things, as seen in our Spring/Summer 2014 edition. Did any of our favorites make your list? Leave a comment below. We’d love to hear from you!
1. Long gone are the days of bland wedding accessories. Custom wedding garters not only make a modern statement, but also inspire as they tell a story. Designed by La Gartier, we love the softness The Jackie Garter evokes with its custom crinkle raw silk flower with crystal embellishments. *Bonus: It’s also designed in a go-to neutral for weddings!
2. Monogram pillows are wonderful to gift to any newlywed couple, especially when they’re designed in a pretty metallic to coordinate with any home decor. Add an instant glam to your couch or bedding with the Metallic Monogram Throw Pillow Cover from Three Hip Chicks.
4. Plunging and detailed backs, in addition to full ruffled skirts, are currently gracing the wedding aisle. Here’s one of our favorite ball gowns (Style 6413) designed by Hayley Paige that marries these two trends perfectly!
5. The newest Naked palette from Urban Decay has us blushing with its rose-hued neutrals. From pale, shimmery pink to deep black matte with rosy red micro-glitter, Naked3 will take you from day to night with a few brush strokes.
