Wedding Trends: Accessories
According to Etsy’s Wedding Trends and Registry, statement jewelry is a key accessory trend to keep in mind for 2023. Go bold or go home because statement jewelry is taking center stage at weddings in 2023. Whether you want to accentuate your dress with a bold necklace or cocktail ring or loven up your hairstyle with a statement hairpiece, this is a fun trend to play around with.
If you’re on the hunt for some beautiful statement pieces to rock during wedding season, check out Jenny Bird! The award-winning jewelry and lifestyle brand features a ton of fabulous lightweight statement pieces that you can sport on any special occasion. These Puffy Faye Knockers are a must when it comes to bridal jewelry because they are minimalist in style but feature modern elements that make them a statement must-have. The Nova Necklace is a beautifully modern take on the traditional strand of pearls. If you’re looking for a bolder piece to wear on the big day, you can’t go wrong with a cuff! This Ola Bangle makes a major statement thanks to its scalloped design.
Rings With Character
According to Etsy’s Wedding Trends and Registry, it looks like couples are seemingly moving towards more modern and unique ring styles that stray away from traditional designs. Multiple stone rings or colored diamonds are just some of the ways in which 2023 brides are choosing to opt for rings with character.
Rosettes and silk flowers are a huge trend for 2023. Brides and guests alike are choosing to incorporate more rosette detailing or accessories into their go-to wedding looks and we’re totally here for it! Lele Sadoughi has some beautiful options to consider such as this silk magnolia flower choker/brooch or this silk rosette ribbon choker.
2023 weddings are seemingly all about the bling, especially when it comes to accessories! These Rebecca Minkoff crystal heels are the perfect way to add a bit of glitz and glam into your look to stay on top of the blingy wedding trend.

“Right now we are seeing lots of fun accessories such as playful sleeves and lace bodysuits. Layering bridal looks with accessories is the key to having multiple looks! We are also seeing brides loving spins on classic styles. The return of delicate lace and volume, as well as satin, corset styles, and veils, are trends which will continue into 2024.” – Danielle Gulic and Yvonne Reidy, Co-Founders of LoversLand
Loversland has a stunning collection of wedding must-haves and bridalwear to make your big day one to remember. If you’re on the hunt for your dream dress, the shop has an array of bridal designers to choose from.
In terms of this year’s wedding dress trends, lace and satin are making a huge comeback in the bridal space as fabrics of choice as Guilc and Reidy mentioned above. Volume is also a top-trend in the space, which means brides are leaning towards incorporating tiered skirts, more tulle, and fabric into their designs for a volumized look.
For a more defined look, try corset styles! These are designed to cinch in your waist giving you an hourglass shape. Corsets are a popular street style trend that recently made its way into the bridal sphere. Finally, the perfect finishing touch to your bridal look is a veil! Mini veils are becoming increasingly popular among 2023 brides, in which the shorter length offers a more modern take on the traditional style, as mentioned here in this article.

The study analyzed Google Trends data with over 8,995 search terms relating to different colors and styles of dresses to wear to a wedding.
