When Vera Wang showed not 1, not 2, but several purple wedding gowns on her fall 2010 runway, the bridal market took notice. If you like the look but aren’t sure you want to commit to a colorful dress, little splashes might be a more viable option. Accessories like shoes, hairpieces, and colorful stone jewelry can accent your otherwise ethereal look in a stunning way:

Badgley Mischka 'Dylan' SandalGet It Now

Feeling inspired by the muted lavenders, purples, and pinks of Vera Wang’s latest bridal collection? These Badgley Mischka ‘Dylan’ Sandals ($200) provide the same subtle hint of color without overpowering a white or ivory gown.

Nadri Micro Pavé Bangle

Get It Now

Add a little glimmer to your wrist in three tones with the Nadri Micro Pavé Bangle ($98), also inspired by this season’s muted color palette.

Get It Now

If your wedding color is blue, but you don’t want a blueberry dress, try a dash of the pretty color – like in a hair clip. This Tasha Chiffon Flower Clip ($38) is perfect.

Get It Now

If you don’t want a white shrug or wrap, this silver-y Ilana Wolf Silk Organza Wrap ($250) is stunning.

Netted Rosette Headband

Get It Now

Add a sweet dusting of pink to your finished ‘do with this Netted Rosette Headband ($4.80) from Forever 21. A delicate homage to today’s colored runway gowns.
