Ways To Shop BP
Here at The Bobby Pin, there are numerous ways to shop our beautiful collections. Whichever route you choose, you’ll find highly-stylish designs for every style of bride, whether your vibe is contemporary, chic, ethereal, glamorous, boho or classic.
We recently gave our website a big overhaul glow-up to make it feel less transactional and more like an experience. This meant making it even more beautiful to look at, easy to navigate, and a dream to shop, achieved through inspirational elements, shopper-friendly features and cool editorial images and video content.
Our online collection features a full array of spellbindingly beautiful bridal accessories influenced by the latest trends and friendly enough for any budget, with prices ranging from as little as £15 up to £175. To make your online accessory search an absolute breeze, you can shop by category, like ‘bridal headbands’ and ‘bridal jewellery’ and filter by price to ensure the products displayed suit your budget.
Within our gorgeous online shop, you’ll also find the prettiest flower girl and bridesmaid accessories and gifts, plus elegant finishing touches for mothers of the bride/groom so you tick off the whole wedding party during your visit.
- In Person
While some brides love shopping for their wedding accessories from the comfort of their sofa, we know others prefer to do it in person…creating another wonderful excuse for a girls' day out!
As such, we have a Bobby Pin Boutique (BPB) collection available to shop exclusively at select bridal boutiques across the UK and overseas. This includes a range of beautifully luxe headpieces, crowns, combs and jewellery designed to reflect leading big-day looks and deliver the types of accessories our brides desire most.
It might be that the boutique you purchased your dress from is a stockist of our BPB collection, providing a dream opportunity to try on accessory options whilst wearing your gown. Even if that’s not the case, the added beauty of shopping in person is that you’ll have an expert bridal stylist on hand to give guidance and help achieve your dream bridal vision during a dedicated accessory appointment.
- Via Social
There’s no doubt that social platforms provide a wealth of inspo and options when it comes to planning a wedding. For us, it’s our Instagram feed where brides-to-be flock for up-to-the-minute styling inspiration, trending products and brand-new collection releases.
Seeing our Bobby Pin designs worn by different styles of brides and with different types of hairstyles - whether taken from a real wedding or styled shoot - can really help filter down the options and build the dream big-day picture.
And that’s not all. This channel is where we host exclusive giveaways, discounts and competitions, so it’s well worth hitting that ‘follow’ button.
- Twin For The Win
Less a place to shop and more a way to shop, our twinning accessories are a real hit with modern, style-led brides-to-be and make picking your accessories even more easy-breezy.
These are perfectly coordinating bridal hair vines, pins, crowns, combs and earrings that can be worn together to create a consistent yet personalised look. Think dainty bridal hair pins paired with matching statement earrings or a bold bridal crown teamed with delicate drop earrings in the same swoon-worthy style.
The twinning pieces, which can be found in our online and Bobby Pin Boutique collections, not only put you brides firmly in the styling seat, but they provide a dreamy opportunity to switch up your bridal look by simply changing up your accessories. Furthermore, they’re a great way to accessorise the entire bridal party - just imagine a gorgeous statement floral crown for you and matching dainty flower hairpins for your bridesmaids!
