Headbands are a great bridal accessory because with the right accents and details, it can go from whimsical and sweet, to elegant and refined. Feathers and oversized flowers have been increasingly popular lately, but the rhinestoned and beaded variety are a more classic, bridal look. Which look are you going for? – Tram @Phi-Style.com
Long, layered necklaces for your wedding day jewelry? Surprisingly versatile, the look can range from bohemian, to 1920′, to simple and elegant. Something new and refreshing to consider! – Tram @Phi-Style.com
Is your hair your security blanket? Does the thought of having to put your hair up for your wedding make you more nervous than actually getting married? Look no further, because long, loose wedding hair is not only acceptable, but really quite lovely. – Tram @Phi-Style.com

Brooklyn Bride recently received a reader request for bridal footwear that was outdoor wedding-friendly. Probably the most important factor to consider is the heel – nothing too skinny that might sink into grass. A thicker heel or a wedge will prevent such a disaster! However, if you do go for a wedge-type shoe, you don’t want it to look too casual or espadrille-like. The ones I’ve found above feature a thinner, more sculpted wedge that is both elegant and functional. – Tram @Phi-Style.com
Royal Wedding part 2? Kate Moss got married last week to Jamie Hince of The Kills in Southrop, England and I thought the wedding was gorgeous. Loved the gaggle of flowergirls with flower crowns – so bohemian, so Kate! – Tram @Phi-Style.com
Kate’s dress was John Galliano while Jamie wore Stefano Pilati for Yves Saint Laurent. I’m not one for sequins and sparkles, but the scattered gold sequins trailing down the dress, expanding into gold leaves along an unfinished train was so beautiful. Elegant, yet keeping in line with Kate’s bohemian aesthetic.
However, I think my absolute favorite part of Kate’s bridal ensemble was the veil. Loved this so much! Swept over the head and fastened with tiny flowers on one side like a cap, flowing down to a finger-tip length. Lovely and romantic.
