Your London Wedding - March/April 2023 (Issue 88)

JEWELLERY AND ACCESSORIES 55 EMILY BENDELL, BLUEBELLA BRIDAL LINGERIE About… Bluebella was born when founder Emily Bendell noticed a gap in the market for fashion-focused lingerie that was inclusive and empowering. This bridal collection is tailored to confident, contemporary brides who want their wedding lingerie to be just as fabulous as the rest of their attire. Most popular product… Marseille! It’s provocative with some romantic undertones thanks to the stunning embroidery. This season, we’ve expanded the Marseille collection and added a matching pyjama set and kimono to complete a bridal edit of dreams. Key trends this year… Underwear-as-outerwear. If it’s too beautiful to hide, why hide it? Another emerging trend is colour. Our newest collection is full of eye-catching shades like delicate purples, feminine blues and pastel pinks. Top tip for accessorising your big-day look… Choose two bridal sets. The first has to go well with your dress and the other one (or two, or three!) is for the wedding night or the honeymoon. Here you can really have fun and choose styles and colours to suit your individual style and mood.

Most popular product… Our signature collection the Wheel of Fortune; offers many options for customisability, with each changeable charm having a symbolic representation, from the dice associated with abundance, the rose with beauty, the heart with love and the spiral as a symbol of protection. Each of the charms can be worn on the Wheel of Fortune bangle, ring, or pendant. Key trends this year… Jewellery is a personal expression for an individual and having access to customise it to express oneself is something we definitely support. There has been a rise in colourful jewellery, as any outfit gets enhanced with a pop of colour. Top tip for accessorising your big-day look… Less is more.
