Dear gentlest reader, if Netflix’s Bridgerton has inspired you to become a diamond of the first water on your wedding day look no further.
Over the last two Bridgerton seasons, the style behind the period drama has leaned on romantic silhouettes, bold statements with sparkles and feathers, and ornate accessories — something to keep in mind before running off to the modiste.
The Bridgerton-Inspired Bridal Accessory Lineup
The “Queen Charlotte" prequel series comes out in May and we can’t wait to see how they accessorize our favorite characters. While we wait for the big reveal, we’ve gathered Bridgerton-style bridal accessories that will give Lady Whistledown something to write home about.
The Sarah Drawstring Handbag with feathers
While you may not be able to become a member of the Bridgerton family, you can get closer to looking like one with pieces like The Sarah Drawstring Handbag ($1,450). The Italian duchess satin and lavish ostrich feathers nod to the regency era while subtle details like the champagne shimmer suide interior and gold hardware add a modern twist.

The Vintage-Inspired Rosa Clutch
For a more delicate design, look no further than The Rosa Clutch ($1,825). The purse is a reference to the handbag carried by designer Maria Caruso Martin’s grandmother Rosa in 1952. The vintage-inspired bridal handbag is characterized by its folded gold-plated brass frame and engraved clasp enclosure.

Custom Couture Design for the Diamond of the Season
In order to become the diamond of the season, embrace the custom embroidery, beadwork and additional embellishments that sets you apart. Do you think Queen Charlotte would settle for less than couture? The Bella Rosa Collection’s Made for Me offerings allow you to work directly with the founder & creative director to collaborate on a custom clutch for your special day.
