You’ve probably noticed by now that ‘pearlcore’ is a key 2022 wedding trend, showing up everywhere from cakes and décor to wedding fashion and jewellery. Of course, pearls are nothing new to bridal. In fact, they’ve been worn for centuries. Ancient Greeks believed pearls were tears shed by the goddess of love, Aphrodite, and that wearing them on your wedding day would prevent a bride from shedding tears over her marriage. For a few years, though, pearls were seen as a little old fashioned but recently they’ve been featured in innovative new ways, leading to a fresh new image for the classic stone. No matter your style, there’s a way to wear the pearl bridal accessories trend that will suit you and your wedding.
For example, if you’re aiming for a boho look, pearls can be placed to look almost haphazard in loose, beachy waves, or clips used to accent a half up half down do. A single, large pearl (or a few) can elevate a simple bridal chignon or ponytail to something special. For a glam look, choose a vintage-style pearl clip, or veil. Or, for a high-fashion look, opt for an oversize clip, an over-the-top pearl-encrusted headband, or wear pearls strategically placed along a slicked back parting. From minimalist to statement looks, the Make Me Bridal pros have you covered in the inspiration department! So let’s take a deep dive into the pearl bridal accessory trend and how to wear it to maximum effect.
