Though wedding gowns are plenty stunning on their own, there’s just something about the perfect accessory that can kick even the most beautiful look up a notch. Here are a few of our favorite accessories from 2011 weddings.

The summer months are jam-packed with goodness, aren’t they? From days out by the pool to nights under the stars, you just can’t beat warm Southern summers. We are so happy that y’all have taken time out of your busy summer days to check in to see some downright gorgeous Southern weddings. June has been chock-full of amazing nuptials and equally amazing giveaways. Whether you fancy jewelry or dresses, we are determined to get you all decked out for the summer season!

First up, we wanted to introduce a little sparkle into your summer with a giveaway from Desires by Mikolay’s Bling! line. With a dash of sophistication and a big dose of shine, the Diamond Shape Filigree Earrings from Desires by Mikolay will be perfect for your big day.

We asked y’all to tell us which Bling! accessory was your favorite for a chance to win a pair of Bling! Diamond Shape Filigree Earrings. Congratulations to Kathy M., who was won over by the blue topaz cocktail ring. Isn’t that color just marvelous?

A bride is faced with many choices when planning her big day and often at the top of the list for the style-conscious are the outfits. While that gorgeous white dress is the most important concern, you want your bridesmaids to look lovely, as well. Twobirds Bridesmaid deserves a round of applause for their genius concept. Twobirds dresses can be worn in a multitude of fashions so your maids can choose for themselves which look fits their personality best.

We asked you to tell us why your maid of honor means the world to you for the chance to win two dresses from Twobirds bridesmaid. Congratulations to Suzy, who chose two matrons of honor (who now each get to wear a gorgeous Twobirds dress)!

When the time came to choose my MOH, it was a no-brainer. I chose the TWO most wonderful and beautiful women in my life to be my Matrons of Honor. I’ve always known that on my wedding day, I would have only them stand beside me and no one else. It’s been the three of us since elementary school and our bond is one of my most prized possesions. We’ve gone from trading stickers, sleepovers and ballet class to dinner parties, careers and babies and everything in between. They’ve found the men of their dreams and now that I’m about to marry mine, I’m overwhelmed with gratitude and love for these women and I know how fortunate I am. This wedding completes a chapter for us, in that we will all have found our counterpart and I would love nothing more than to gift them with these beautiful dresses.

Last week, we introduced you to one of the best Southern collaborations I’ve seen. Your beau will be the envy of all of his friends when he dons a Collared Greens bow tie, and you’ll be the belle of the ball when you carry a gorgeous clutch from Oatmeal Lace. Did we mention that the two of you will match beautifully? These are the perfect accessories for all of those summer weddings you’ve been invited to.

We asked y’all to tell us how you like to accessorize when you attend weddings (as a guest, of course). Congratulations to Miss Caitlin, who sounds like a real stunner:

My wedding guest accessories usually consist of jumbo sized pearls, a hair flower clip or headband, a cute clutch bag (like the one in this giveaway – wink, wink), and naturally, some fabulous heels (you have to make your calves look ahhmazing)!

Caitlin, be sure to send us some pictures of you and your man with your new Southern accessories! We’d love to see them!

Also, Oatmeal Lace and Collared Greens are each offering a special 10% discount to all of our lovely readers! Just enter the code “SWLOVE” at checkout!

Whew! It has been simply wonderful to share all of these amazing giveaways with you. Lucky winners, I will be contacting you by email in the next few days! We love our fabulous readers and we are so glad that you love us, too! Make sure you keep reading — there are more giveaways to come!

It’s time to spread the giveaway goodness! Today we are picking winners left and right. Three of you lucky ducks will be winning custom garters from Bleu Garters, another charming reader will get a beautiful feather headband from Lo Boheme, and a third will receive a goodie box of delights from our Fearrington color story. Let’s get this party started!

First up, Bleu Garters!

Drum roll please! The three winners for the Bleu Garters giveaway are Okeoma (whose favorite design in Bleu Garter’s collection was the lacey Gardenia III), Jenn (who loved the Victoria), and Kalea (who picked the Monaco for a little something blue)

Congratulations, ladies! You will each get your own custom-made garters from Bleu Garters. Ooh la la!

Now, which reader will get to channel the beauty and glamour of the Southern Meets SoCal feature?

Lo Boheme offered up the vintage-inspired feather headband featured in the shoot to one of you. Congratulations to Karlye! We asked readers to tell us their favorite part of the Southern Meets SoCal shoot and here’s Karlye’s answer:

Aside from the amazing photography as a whole, my favorite details about this photo shoot are the use of cotton and green tomatoes. I love how two things that are so southern and so simple were put together to create such elegant décor. Those details, along with the absolutely stunning dress and enchanting lighting, make for captivating photos that are soft and romantic.

Couldn’t have said it better myself! Enjoy your Lo Boheme feather headband!

Now on to the Fearrington goodie box, which will include lovely pieces from Gleena Ceramics, Amelia Rose, Fuss Jewelry, and Emersonmade.

Megan B is our lucky winner! She said:

“The entire issue is amazing!! However, personally, I can really appreciate the shoot at Fearrington Village. It hit home with me because not only am I using the cotton cady fresh mint bridesmaid dresses from JCrew, I considered having my wedding there! Cost being a major factor, we’re taking those vintage, garden-esque elements into an indoor venue that will better suit my budget (and fear of rain in April!) The photo of the monochrome macaroons really gave me excitement about using all shades of aqua/teal/tourquoise/mint. Those colors are stunning and paired with vintage lace, tea cups and saucers, and gorgeous flowers to incorporate into the wedding, it will really capture the essence of Spring. My mom actually came up with a cute idea from that photo to serve the macaroons in little nests to look like robin’s eggs for the bridal luncheon :) Needless to say, this shoot was gorgeous, but I just love every hand picked detail that added so much charm!”

Be sure to enter this week’s ridiculously awesome Chaviano Couture giveaway. You have ’til Monday!

Winners: don’t forget to email us to claim your fabulous prizes!
