We featured a Real Wedding where the bride wore a light pink silk scarf with her wedding gown, and we remember it like the post was yesterday. The bride, Debbie, wanted a simple, sweet, and elegant wedding day look, so her light pink scarf was the perfect thing to tie into her personal style. If you’re looking for an accessory to tie into your bridal ensemble, perhaps a silk scarf is just what you need for a fun pop of color!

Wearing a scarf around your neck isn’t the only way to work it; you can wear it around your neck, as a headband, as a wrap, as a cuff bracelet, styled into your braided hairstyle, and more.
