Destination weddings are so romantic, and wanting to guarantee sun and warmth leads many happy couples to plan a beach wedding in a tropical location. So, once you have booked the destination, it is time to find the perfect wedding accessories for your sun-kissed celebrations. It is likely you will be looking for the perfect designer wedding shoes to compliment your dress. If you are looking for wedding jewellery, consider pearls as, after all, they came from the ocean bed. Here are some of our favourite shoes and jewels to get you started.
Block-Heeled Wedding Shoes
Now, while many beach brides opt to go barefoot in the sand, they still choose the perfect shoes for the reception and dancing the night away. We can let you into a little secret as well; if you do want shoes for the sand, the low-block heel wedding shoes are the best choice! The wider block heel gives you better traction on the moving sand, and we have to say they look fabulous too.
Gigi is one of our iconic jewelled mother-of-pearl heels that is finished in stunning shimmering ivory suede. With a low 3.5-inch heel, these platform sandals have a mosaic mother of pearl in the heel and are perfect for uneven terrain.
Ivory is one of the most popular wedding shoe choices, but champagne wedding shoes are very popular too. So, with that in mind, we have Martina Midi, which is similar to Gigi but without the platform. And if you want something with a little more sparkle Martina Midi Queen has extra bling across the toe with our handcrafted pearl and Swarovski crystal detailing.
Our final choice is Martene Midi, which features a simple ivory toe band and, this time, a closed back with a high ankle strap for a beautiful finish.
Once you have your perfect shoes, it is time to select the perfect pearl jewellery for the big day. From a necklace and earrings to a wedding clutch bag, we have some beautiful choices for you.
First up, the Hakruo earrings are simply stunning. Long drops of woven seed pearls are woven onto either a lovely silver curb chain or gold vermeil curb chain. The former is perfect to pair with ivory wedding shoes, and the gold vermeil goes perfectly with the champagne bridal shoes.
Available in two widths, we also recommend the stunning gold weave cuff that is crocheted by hand by one of our artisan jewellers using a technique known to only a few amazing East Indonesian crafters. This is part of our Woven for Women collection, which is a cause close to our heart, with 5% of every sale given to our two charity initiatives.
Finally, something that often gets overlooked! Even as the bride, you will want somewhere to stash your mobile, lippy and mirror! The Aphrodite mother-of-pearl ivory clutch bag is perfect for your essentials and looks absolutely stunning. Pass it to your maid of honour during the ceremony and reclaim it for the pictures.
