25 unusual and gorgeous accessories to update your wedding wardrobe

One may always attempt to be prepared for wedding season, yet as the number of nuptials each year rises (which is weird because surely logic says there are fewer people left in your friendship circle to be married off) you end up panic-buying or reverting to old faithfuls.

But accessorising cleverly could save you buying a whole new outfit: find here 25 ideas for unusual and stylish accessories, including shoes, fascinators, handbags and jewellery to easily update your wedding ensembles without dropping a bundle on one-wear wonders destined for wardrobe purgatory.

Forget huge hats made of a material you never seem to see employed elsewhere (it's called sinamay by the way, we looked it up), we promise splashes of colour, statement jewellery, eye-catching design and fun touches to lift any and all outfits.

And if nothing else, your new bag will definitely be a handy talking point when the table-of-strangers convo runs out.
