Today’s guest post comes from the lovely Trilby from the team at Wonderful Wraps. Their job is to provide the perfect accessory to your dream dress… a gorgeous wrap. From the glamorous to the elegant, a wrap is a great way to accessorise your outfit, and as Trilby mentions below, with the ever unpredictable British weather, can be a pretty way to keep warm too!
Over to Trilby…
Beautiful bridal accessories for your perfect day – we have it ‘Wrapped Up!’
Welcome to the wonderful world of wraps! From ways to wear them to ideas for dresses that may work well with this must have accessory. I want to add inspiration to your perfect wedding event!
As spring is almost upon us and summer is not far behind, I thought it might be helpful to give you brides-to-be a little guidance and demonstrate how a beautiful wrap can add sophistication to any dress style and keep you warm – whatever the weather! We all know how changeable the British forecast can be! So not only can a wrap, of whatever style, keep the heat in, it can also be an aid to show off areas you want to let breath! Style savvy brides have been using cover ups and shawls in abundance this season as they are a great way of giving camouflage to problem areas (such as upper arms for example) and can also frame and compliment your dream wedding dress.
Most of the wraps that have been making a huge wave amongst the fashion industry play with material and texture adding a certain depth and character to your over all look.
Let me give you some examples to excite your mind and stimulate your senses!
This shawl style is perfect for covering areas you want to cleverly conceal but also adds versatility by keeping you warm and toasty – all the while embodying old school Hollywood glamour. And ladies – take note – cost saving is paramount in this current economic climate! You want your accessories to have a multi functional purpose – maybe even to snuggle under after your big day has come to a close!
Our bespoke marabou stole allows any bride the perfect mix of drama and elegance and marries the ability to cover up or reveal what is hidden underneath! Perfect for those sassy ladies that want to add a bit of wow factor into their event!
To really be a show stopper and give your dress a touch of fairytale fantasy the ‘Red Riding Hood’ cloak is a sure way to make any bride feel a true belle of the ball. Add this fabulous accessory to even the most simple of dress designs (shown here with a simple ivory strapless gown) and it transforms into a mythical creation!
This flower tulle from our new S/S Limited Edition 2012 collection is sure to make you feel ultra special but also keep you cool in the warmer months – or perfect if you are looking at a hot destination wedding!

And to finish off our little trip through the sumptuous sensation that is known as the wrap in any one of its forms, its only fitting to finish with one of our best selling creations! Here it is paired with a simple but chic ivory ’sheath’ style gown. We think you will agree that this exquisite organza cloak makes the dress pop with angelical style. This could definitely be the piece de résistance for a picture perfect spring/summer wedding. It’s all about the magic touches and that wonderful wrap that’s right for you!
