Q. For our vintage wedding, I'm looking for accessories to finish off my look. What would you suggest? 

A. Chantelle Hewitt says: Vintage-style weddings are so on-trend right now and you can incorporate one or two elements into your accessories, even if you don't want to embrace the theme fully.

The wedding dress usually dictates the type of accessories chosen. Flowers and leaves on a hair vine, woven through a plait or around the forehead for a '70s look works perfectly for boho styles – jewellery can be delicate gold bees or butterflies, silver feathers or maybe a pearl pendant!

If you're looking for a Gatsby style, slim-fitted and heavily-beaded dresses look amazing with sparkling hair combs or tiaras.

If you're reflecting the '20s, then a feathered headpiece works well with a fabulous pair of glittering Swarovski drop earrings. 

The '40s and '50s were full of elegance and style; opt for tea-length dresses, classic string pearls and matching studs for a timeless look that's never out of fashion. Birdcage veils also bring a touch of vintage glamour to any wedding dress. 

For those Hollywood-style brides, glittering hair combs studded with crystals and a gorgeous statement necklace and earrings will epitomise the theme.
