Bridal Bows: Tie Up Your Look

As we step into the summer of 2024, the bridal world has continued to embrace a whimsical and romantic trend that promises to add a touch of enchantment: bows.

This year, bows have made a grand entrance on the bridal scene, offering brides a delightful blend of tradition and contemporary elegance. From oversized statement pieces to delicate additions, bows are becoming the go-to detail for brides seeking a unique touch on their day.

One of the most striking aspects of this trend is its versatility. From more dramatic, floor-sweeping sashes to subtle additions, designers are using bows to highlight key elements of bridal gowns and to create a stunning focal point for that memorable walk down the aisle. For brides who prefer a more understated look, bows are finding their way into bridal accessories. Veils with bow accents, or our Classic Detachable Bow Veil, are a popular choice, especially for a town hall ceremony. As the veil is seamlessly detachable, it offers two completely different looks.

Bridesmaids' dresses aren't exempt from this trend. Coordinated bows, such as the Silk Bow in Sage Green in each bridesmaids' hair, can create a cohesive look that ties the bridal party together. This is especially effective as brides continue to lean towards choosing mismatched dresses.
It’s the run up to the wedding when the real fun with bows can be had. If your hen do is 'themed', think barbiecore, then our Pink Bow Sheer Gloves can spice up your look. A high impact accessory that really makes those all-important bachelorette photos stand out. If you're going down the line of a bridal shower or a more understated affair, then the Silk Bow in Light Pink is an elegant addition to bring your oufit together.
Bows don’t have to be confined to your outfit; they make a beautiful added detail to a place setting or tablescape. Our Personalised Velvet Bow Place Setting are a perfect favour that can be tied around a name card, menu or even on the stem of a champagne flute to remind your guests who’s glass is whose. Is your dog going to be present on your big day? Accessorize them appropriately to look their smartest self with a Dog Bow.
The resurgence of bows also speaks to a broader trend of embracing femininity and romance in weddings. After years commanded by sleek and minimalist designs, the return of bows brings a fresh feel to bridal wear. If you're finding it hard to choose, the Bridal Silk Bow is a popular choice. It flawlessly allows you to embrace the trend but with a simple elegant design.    

Whether as a statement piece or a delicate detail, bows are set to continue to be a defining trend. Let us help you add this special touch with a bow from our collection! All of our bows are handmade in our London studio, and most are available to personalise with your future initials or a date, allowing them to double up as a precious memento.
