A modern bride would not have survived during the Victorian era and all the restrictions imposed upon women. A real Victoria bride was not allowed to be seen in public from the time of her engagement until the actual wedding day. I believe brides couldn’t even choose their husbands at the time! Still, Victorian jewelry and decor have an air of romance and old-world elegance about them. Add a few dainty Victorian touches to your wedding ensemble! Here are a some Victorian-style accessories you can wear with your wedding dress.

Lace-up boots such as this one were extremely popular during the Victorian age. Today, they’re a fashionable and off-beat alternative to the evening shoes most brides would choose. Best worn with with a short lacy dress or tea-length dress.

These gorgeous cameo earrings would look amazing with a simple wedding dress or a wedding dress with an unembellished top.

Gold and bronze accessories give the illusion of age, and would pop out when worn with a goddess-style wedding dress.

Wear your veil together with a beautiful crystal headpiece. A circlet of orange blossoms was a popular choice among Victorian brides because they symbolized fertility. More well-off Victorian brides wore circlets of pearls or crystals instead.

Place your makeup in this beaded taffeta evening bag for quick retouches during your wedding reception.
