"All Carte Blanche Bride designers are committed

to...the best materials..."

I have always loved accessories, they put a finishing touch on any look and - with only a little effort - stand out from the crowd by how you add those "trimmings". My first and most special accessory purchase I recall was in New York as a 23-year old. I walked in Yves Saint Laurent on East 57th Street and there was the Arty Cabochon cocktail ring (I don't think they make them anymore) I had been dreaming of since I tore it out of British Vogue earlier that year. I still have it 10 years later and boy, has that piece brought me so much joy!

Alas, I have digressed...

When it comes to your wedding shopping, it goes without saying that the emphasis first is THE dress. But your wedding look is never complete without the cherry on top. How you accessorise your look. Whatever your style - understated, romantic, or sophisticated—it’s the extra touches that polish off your dream look.

A top tip I recommend when investing your wedding accessories is to choose a piece or pieces that you will want to wear long after your wedding day. It's a beautiful reminder of the day, it can become an heirloom piece and when you're spending money it's nice to know you can also get cost per wear.
