Choosing your prom jewelry should not be taken too lightly because this is one of the most memorable days of your life as you move on from high school into adulthood. You have been waiting for this day since kindergarten and now that it’s here, you should take the time to choose your prom jewelry just as carefully as you are choosing your prom dress.
Fashion staples from decades ago often return to the scene with a modern twist. Take the bridal hat. It wasn’t long ago that women wouldn’t leave the house without wearing the adored and respectable hat, choosing an appropriate hat for the occasion. Kate Middleton, royalty and other socialites have embraced the hat as a modern fashion accessory.
Brides can borrow some of the guidelines that apply to veils when it comes to selecting the perfect bridal hat. The simpler and more minimalist the gown, the more ornate hat you can wear — but an elaborate wedding gown calls for a simpler hat. Try on many hats for the right symmetry, but wait to pick the bridal hat until you are in front of the mirror with your wedding dress alterations complete. Today’s wedding hats are often adorned with feathers, flowers, beads, rhinestones, crystals, ribbons and birdcage veils, so your options are endless.
The key is to consider different style bridal hats for proportion and to achieve the perfect look on your wedding day. Chic bridal accessories such as gloves, pearls or vintage inspired jewelry double the impact. With bridal hats, it’s all about preference. But don’t be afraid to be the sophisticated bride on your wedding day.

It’s fun to incorporate meaningful elements into your wedding, such as “something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue and a silver sixpence in her shoe.” Subtle details can fulfill this traditional bridal saying that is thought to be bring the bride good luck and a long, happy marriage. “Something old” symbolizes continuity with the bride’s family and the past while moving to the next chapter.
Ideas for something old:
Family heirlooms, antique pieces, vintage relics or sentimental objects can fill the “something old” wedding tradition.
Look to moms, aunts, grandparents or someone close to you for trinkets that you can use in your wedding, like a handkerchief or charm wrapped around your bouquet.
Wear a locket necklace with old family photos or display these pics at the reception. Photos of the bride and groom as children look lovely at the guest book table.
Use vintage ribbon, lace, buttons or other ornaments on the flower bouquet, wedding dress, veil or as decorative touches.
Shop thrift stores, antique malls and your grandmother’s closet for a vintage purse, clutch, gloves or brooch.
Perch vintage cake toppers on the wedding cake or add a whimsical touch at the dessert bar.
Toasting flutes handed down are perfect for the reception.
Carry a cherished momento in your bridal purse.
Wear something passed down, like a veil, tiara, garter or jewelry. This also meets the “something borrowed” requirement.
Brides can use their imagination and search their mother’s attic or memory box for the “something old” object they cherish. The bridal shower is an opportunity for family members to pass down a keepsake for the bride to use at the wedding or keep afterward. We wish you joy as you hunt for something old.
