With another year comes new trends across the board, but particularly in relation to all things wedding-related. Trends regarding wedding accessories are fun to follow as you plan your big day. When you do, it allows you to figure out which ideas you may want to tap into as you plan your wedding day look and which don’t suit your style. Either way, here are some of the top 2022 bridal accessory trends to be aware of!

Statement Earrings

2022 is the year of bold statements, and what better way to do that than with a pair of earrings? Long, linear earrings in drop styles or those embellished with pearls, crystals, or even fringe really bring the drama. You can also go for chunky hoops if that’s more your style.

Bridal Belts

This doesn’t seem like something that you’d immediately think of as a bridal accessory, but belts are reigning supreme when it comes to this topic. Different interpretations of belts are popping up on designer runways for bridal looks, whether it be a wide-banded belt or a thin, sparkly band. These are versatile and add a layer of intrigue to any look, so they’re worth exploring for your own bridal outfit!

Pearl Detailing on Veils

Wedding veils aren’t nearly as straightforward as they may have been at one time. But instead of detailed lace, this year’s trend for this accessory is pearl detailing. This presents an amazing way to make a style statement without doing anything too over the top. Feminine and classy, you can’t go wrong with this addition to your look. Fashion moguls predict that crystal embellished veils are on the rise, too.

Hair Bows

Looking to add a bold statement and feminine touch to your bridal look? Then you’re in luck, because bridal hair bows are currently all the rage! Bows on dresses have been a trend for quite some time, but bridal bows are new to the scene. These dramatic, oversized accessories are both fun and romantic, making them a special touch for any glowing bride!

Birdcage Veils

Another veil trend for 2022 are birdcage veils. This is a fun spin on the tradition of a veil. They’re more minimalistic size-wise, but have a large impact on your look overall. Birdcage veils are cutting-edge and certainly distinctive.

Floral Headbands

The bridal headband trend has been around for a while, but for this year, there’s a new spin on this accessory: floral headbands. This fresh upgrade adds something feminine and romantic to any gown, and can be quite the statement piece for brides who opt to add this element into their look.

Sheer Capes

Capes are a trend that come and go from year to year, but in 2022 they’re taking on a new persona! Sheer capes can replace a veil for brides that are looking to do something different. Whether they’re short and flirty or long and regal, there are many iterations of this trend to be found.


Another jewelry accessory trend worth checking out this year is chokers. This has been influenced by celebrities like Dua Lipa and Bella Hadid. Pearl chokers are particularly notable for brides, as are three-strand chokers in general.

Gloves are another trend that tend to ebb and flow in relation to bridal accessories. Well, for 2022 they’re back and better than ever! You may think that gloves are pretty straightforward, but there are actually so many styles of them that you can choose from. Whether they’re long and matte or baggy and sheer, they’re a distinct way to add sophistication to a bridal look.

There are so many fun bridal accessory trends out there, and these are just some of the most popular for the year. Incorporating them into your big day look is a great way to connect yourself to the year you’re getting married and to find a fun way to add some personality to your overall look.
