Accessories for the Mother of the Bride can really make an outfit come to life.

Fabulous headwear with the wow factor will ensure you make an entrance fitting for Mother of the Bride. To complete the ensemble, matching shoes and bag, same colour from top to toe, or contrasting, is ideal.

For a more subtle appearance, a fascinator on a band, or a comb, works very well, so long as the whole ensemble is the same tone. Choosing which colours to wear can be quite difficult, as you don’t want to look like a bridesmaid, but you need to tone with the colour theme of the wedding. You will be looking at the wedding photos forever, so you need to make sure you look good and stand out for all the right reasons.

Some Mothers of the Bride and Groom really don’t want to stand out, or make a fuss, and that’s fine too. The trick is find outfits and headwear which are subtle and elegant but special enough so that you won’t be mistaken as a guest. Finishing touches with either a statement piece of jewellery, or some subtle pearls, in toning colours, will ensure that you look the part on the day to make your son or daughter proud.



These amazing veils, tiaras, jewelry, and boleros are hand made in their factory in Ely in Cambridgeshire. It is so unusual to find British made goods these days, so I am incredibly happy to be an Elite Stockist for this company. The quality of the workmanship combined with excellent customer service makes Richard Designs the leading accessories supplier in the UK.

Every item is hand made to order meaning that we can customise to suit your requirements. Headpieces and tiaras can have the band covered in a fine ribbon to match your hair, so the band is not seen.


The most obvious bridal accessory is a veil. Most brides are adamant that they do not want a veil but when they see how perfect the right veil looks with their dress, most change their mind. After all, it is the only time in your life that you get the chance to wear a veil.

The veil should enhance the beauty of your wedding dress by providing delicate sparkle or exquisite lace edging.

The most popular length is 72 inches, which falls just above the back of the knee, but more and more brides are choosing full chapel (126 inches) or cathedral (144 inches) length, which flows effortlessly behind.

The incredible abbey length veil (180 inches) is an absolute showstopper! Whichever veil you choose, it is important that it is sheer enough and does not hide the beauty of your dress.


A belt can change the whole appearance of your dress. You can choose from sparkly crystal, delicate lace, or silk flower designs to enhance the style of your wedding dress.

For a simple lace design wedding dress, a crystal belt can add glamour. For a simple elegant silk wedding dress, a delicate lace belt can soften the look. For the Boho Chic garden party style wedding, silk flowers on the belt to match headdresses works well.
