Q. What are the trends in bridal accessories for 2019?

A. Kelly Mills says: Trends are apparent within weddings, especially with dresses and flowers. I feel that a recent popular trend with brides was rose gold as a colour theme. Before that, white and ivory were the most desired shades. For hair accessories, they are often paired to complement the bride's or bridesmaids' dresses.

You always have the popular three themes: traditional, vintage and modern. The time of year can also dictate the style of the hair accessory and, therefore, the trend. For example, the more modern style seems to be in the summer, when pink and light grey will complement the white and ivory, making the hair accessory sparkle in the light.

The traditional style of a tiara worn in loose locks is usually more popular during autumn and winter as brides are more likely to have their hair down to cover their shoulders for extra warmth.

A big trend that I think will be very popular throughout 2019 is vintage or vintage-meets-modern look for which the bride has taken inspiration from a different era but wants a more modern take on it. A hair vine worn in a loose, 1920s style or a dramatic beaded flower comb suited to a 1940s or '50s style are good examples of this.
