Wedding trend alert: Pearls are back!
Pearlcore is the name given to the rising trend of incorporating pearly or iridescent accents into style and decor that was super popular in the 1920s and 1930s.
With a traditional-meets-modern twist, this trend of yesterday is sure having a renaissance this year, with everything from hair accessories and jewelry to shoes and embroideries, pearls are popping up everywhere, and we can see it reflected on the bridal looks this season.
Pearls are nothing new in bridal style; this gemstone has always been a bridal staple. In ancient cultures, they represent purity, the same as the white wedding dress. Some believe a pearl is a representation of a tear and by wearing them at your wedding, you won’t shed any tears in your marriage, ensuring a lifetime of joy with your future spouse. However, in modern times pearls were less frequently used in bridal fashion as brides were leaning towards more modern, less elaborated bridal looks. But now, it seems that after spending a couple of years full of restrictions and event cancelations, brides just really want to have fun and wear something spectacular regardless of how big or small their wedding ends up being and pearls are the perfect element to easily elevate any bridal style with its elegant, neutral iridescent glow and lux appearance.
