And here we are, cruising towards a long Bank Holiday weekend and I can’t wait. I hope that you’ll get some time to enjoy the early May break and fingers crossed that the weather is kind to us.

I’ve got something for you today that will definitely lift your spirits ahead of the weekend because I’ve got the huge pleasure of introducing you to the wonderful Lola & Alice. This online bridal boutique features affordable wedding jewellery and accessories for brides looking for vintage-inspired, easy-to-wear, deliciously chic pieces. So, without further ado, let’s leap on in together…

Lola & Alice is, quite simply, the new name that you absolutely need to know if you’re a fashion-savvy bride who doesn’t want to blow the budget on jewellery or compromise on style. This carefully curated collection of vintage-inspired pieces features gorgeously feminine design alongside exquisite details with price tags that you’ll fall for.

Founded by Elizabeth Raderecht, Lola & Alice takes its name from Elizabeth’s childhood nickname and her daughter. The company is based in Bath but ships worldwide and it’s most definitely a passion project for Elizabeth:

“After studying art, working in magazine publishing and running a successful online fashion and accessories boutique, I decided to combine my keen eye for detail with my love of all things wedding! I’ve always adored weddings and my love affair with vintage began when I first raided my grandmother’s costume jewellery box as a child.”

“I’m passionate about Lola & Alice and I hope it shows – I hand-pick everything and only stock pieces that I love. Throughout the collection you’ll find plenty of luxe touches, such as silk flowers, tulle, embroidery, beading and feathers as well as classic pearls and crystal pieces.”

I love that Elizabeth has allowed her own style to infuse each item available from Lola & Alice:

“Like Lola & Alice’s signature look, my style is also quite eclectic and feminine. I’m interested in fashion but I’m not a slave to the latest trends or obsessed with brands. I choose quality materials and appreciate interesting detail – embroidery, hand-printed silks and vintage-look beading.”

And you can definitely see these influences in the pieces along with a real love of vintage design. It’s always easy to say that something is ‘vintage-inspired’ but all too often, this is just a phrase used without much real thought. In Elizabeth’s case, it means every piece revolves around authentic design and detailing and oh my goodness, it’s utterly perfect.

I love the Isadora, a beautiful floral hairpiece and the Bibi earrings with their timeless style. If I was going to opt for statement earrings, the large Catherine pearl earrings with their botanical design would definitely be on my list of must-haves and for a gloriously golden hairband, I’d choose the intricate beauty of Rosalie in a heartbeat.

For a really eye-catching headpiece, you must take a look at Saffron, Pearlie and the divine Ezra, all of which have the most appealing, elegant style. There are also earrings that you just know you’d love for everyday wear too – the Sarah gold earrings and the Zaida earrings would certainly become your new favourites!

However, if you’ve not sure what to choose, Elizabeth is always on hand to offer advice and assistance and, when you’ve selected the piece (or pieces!) that you want, you order will arrive in super pretty rose gold gift box too.
