Accessories can completely change the look of a wedding ensemble, taking a sleek and simple dress to new heights. For bespoke veils, headpieces, and belts with a vintage vibe, look no further than Hushed Commotion! This Brooklyn based company is run by Thea Bloch-Neal, who handcrafts her pieces, which feature a lot of beading, metallics, floral motifs and geometric designs.
There are so many stunning varieties of veils offered by Hushed Commotion. The Adria Veil with halo headpiece of golden flowers topped with crystals and pearls comes in silver and gold, and can double up as a belt. It reminds us of a Medieval princess and has a beautiful ethereal feel to it. The Lila Birdcage and Scarlett veils are a fantastic choice in destination, where you might want something a little lighter that doesn’t touch the sand. The Leona veil has a gorgeous comb on the back reminiscent of a crown, while the Bradley Turban Veil is a beautiful sparkling sheer black fabric (it also comes in ivory) for a bride who might not be interested in wearing all white. The Fletcher veil comes with feathered pieces that match perfectly with the Norma earrings.
When it comes to earrings, Hushed Commotion offers everything from eclectic drop downs like the star shaped Elia pieces, and elegant tassled Margot option. The Noel has a geometric design that climbs the ear, while the Shalom earrings will provide you with a pop of ‘something blue’ for luck. The oversized floral design of the Raquel earrings pairs perfectly with the Katie crown, which can also be worn as a hair piece atop a bun, or even a belt.
There is no shortage of crowns with Hushed Commotion. Everything from Coachella inspired headpieces like the Darby and the Rowan, to Gossip Girl era headbands like the Jasper, delicate crowns like the metallic Neve, and so much more. If crowns aren’t your cup of tea, there are plenty of barettes and combs available as well, such as the 1950s art deco inspired Belmont barette, Clyde comb, or Shira comb, to the floral designs in the Ryan barette, Joey comb, and Justine comb.
We also found fantastic belt designs that are the perfect addition to a dress. We can’t get enough of the Bennett and Jolene belts with dangling tassels, which add a touch of the country to your destination wedding in the Caribbean. The Paloma and the Parker belts add a pop up gold to your dress that really amp up the elegance of your look, and the Bridgit belt is perfect for a bride who loves colour and wants pink to be a theme in her dream wedding.
These are just a few of our favourite pieces, however there SO MANY options to choose from on the website. Prices are reasonable while still reflecting the quality of the unique pieces created by this incredible artisan, and we know you’re going to love what she creates!
