Elopements have been a clear trend in the wedding industry this year, and we all know why! The plus side is that they can be incredibly romantic, adventurous, and less strenuous on your bank account! So if you feel brave enough to end this wild 2020 with a bang, let’s elope on NYE! For last minute planners we’ve selected a few shiny accessories (some budget friendly too!) you can complement your look with and kiss your new hubby under the mistletoe welcoming 2021 in dashing style!
Before we turn our attention to accessories though, if you want to go all in with a glimmering look, you know what’s coming…
You may not be lucky to watch the fireworks this NYE, but this ASOS sequin jumpsuit is a sight for sore eyes and will definitely provide the wow effect.
PUMP’S THE WORD!
If you don’t want to sparkle from head to toes… opt for a quieter glimmer effect wearing these vegan rose gold glitter pumps available at Lulus. And it’s not just any glitter, these shoes are designed by Badgley Mischka, one of the most loved bridal’s shoe designers!
IT’S IN THE BAG!
If you dreamed of wearing a princess wedding gown to walk down the aisle this year but had to downscale your wedding, I assure you, the layered tulle Viola Wrap Skirt by Bohyne (60% off now!) will still guarantee you that fairy tale vibe and you can accessorize it with the regal curved peal and crystal minaudiere by David’s Bridal. You can waive your guests in Elizabethan style using its detachable chain to walk hand free!
No witty tag-lines here. It’s no joke. These days you still need to keep yourself and your loved ones safe. For your NYE elopement, bring on the glamour with Katie May’s masks. Made in Los Angeles, these sparkly masks are available in sequins or Chantilly lace for a more romantic look.
LET IT SNOW COVER GIRL!
If snow is in the forecast, you can snuggle in this luxurious fur free faux crocodile coat by Pelush NYC and strike your bridal pose! You can find more fur free sassy options in last week’s blog Faux Fur For Your Winter Wedding.
SOMETHING BLUE AND SPARKLY
Keep on the something blue tradition with these sparkling turquoise Swarovski. The clear lines and bright, vibrant color combination of these earrings make them ideal for a one of a kind wedding look.
LET YOUR HAIR DOWN!
It’s New Years Eve AND your wedding night and despite a difficult year, it’s time to relax completely and enjoy yourself. Whether you’re planning on a structured fancy updo or prefer to let your hair loose, this low cost, simple to wear headband by Elisabeth Rose Designs can add a sophisticated glitz to your look.
