I miss all the Royal Wedding ramp-up, and can only hope that Meg dons some signature sparkle whenever Nick and Priyanka take the plunge ((please, have a short engagement. I can’t deal otherwise)). Until then, we’ve decided to take a cue from the new Duchess, and round up some seriously-stunning headpieces and jewelry that could only come from a true sparkle queen herself: Heather Eden. As the Creatrix of EDEN LUXE Bridal, Heather has been adding magic to modern brides’ wedding days since 2012, and she sponsored this post to give us all a look at that ✨✨✨. Brides with girl crushes on MM, we’re willing to bet you’ll be ready to go next level with your obsession with an EDEN LUXE Bridal original on your head or your hand.
Sparkle doesn’t just happen…
It comes from within. Heather Eden can thank her husband for crowning her with an unofficial Queen of Sparkle title, and it makes total sense. Years ago, he told her that when she creates sparkly things and/or talks about weddings or wedding accessories, she just “lights up from within.” And when you have such an affinity for all things glowy, glittery, and glimmering, you can pretty much guarantee you’ll know exactly what brides who appreciate that Meghan Markle sparkle will want to wear on the biggest days of their lives yet.
Heather considers it an incredible honor to adorn a bride with ELB on her wedding day, and everything she has to offer is as radiant and resplendent as the new Royal herself.
Apart from the product, though, Heather twinkles too
Of course, EDEN LUXE is enchanting on its own, but what’s even more amazing about the brand is the "Wedding Fairy Godmother" behind it all. Heather doesn’t just send her sparkle to interested brides and then bail on them before the big day. She lives for the opportunities to help style them for the grand event. All brides need to do is message her from the Styling Page of her website, send in a photo of their gown, and fill in the dots about their wedding vision. From there, Heather waves a little magic wand (in the form of email FaceTime, Skype, phone calls with the girls about their wedding gown details, the feeling and flow of their wedding venues, the looks they’ve been after for their wedding ever since they were little girls) and transforms their dreams into reality.
That personalized, bespoke approach is princess-level and THEN some
“SO LUCKY to have found Heather and EDEN LUXE Bridal. Truly world-class service. I am located in Nova Scotia, Canada, but I felt as comfortable as if she were down the street. She answered my questions thoroughly and promptly, and I could tell she was genuinely happy to do so.
When I asked for styling advice, she even asked to see my wedding dress and made an excellent recommendation. I was confused about shipping instructions, but Heather was completely on the ball. Her communication about the process was always on point and I never had to doubt her. She truly CARES.
The product is GORGEOUS. Beautiful workmanship and Heather’s recommendation was spot on - it looks like it was made just for my dress. The piece was wrapped up like a gift and I felt like a royal when I got it. Hands down the best treat of my entire wedding prep so far.” ~Emily
So, that sparkle? It’s no joke
I always wanted to be a princess bride, wear a ball gown, and say ‘I Do’ to my own Prince Charming; and then I got married in something a little more modern, whimsy and nuanced. But OMG. Just looking at the EDEN LUXE Bridal Insta page has the potential to make any bride want those proper princess vibes.
We definitely have our favorites, but if you’re more inclined to mirror Ms. Markle to the tee, ELB has an Art Deco-inspired Meghan tiara replica that is so spot on we couldn’t ask for anything better.

This full bridal crown represents 360 degrees of extreme glamour - of royal proportions. It's an instant heirloom piece with classic romantic style and elegance, extremely luxurious-looking and beautifully accents any wedding hairstyle, plus the sparkle factor is amazing!

This ethereal and utterly-romantic dusty pale blush sheer silk organza veil is made from hand-dyed delicate silk and willow sheer silk fabric for an unparalleled airy, floaty drape. Edging is natural and unfinished, and when hand cut into a veil shape, "eyelashes" can occur at the edges adding to the natural untouched beauty of the silk veiling. 🙌🙌🙌. And the best part? It’s equally perfect for princess and boho-loving brides.
The Genevieve Tiara - $408

This nature-inspired tiara is bejeweled with leaves and blossoms accented by creamy freshwater pearls. The leaves are hand-wired to fashion a comfortable headband and there are bobby pin loops at the ends for added security. Comes in rose gold (our fave), pale gold and silver, so it can match ANY metallic embellishing on your dress. And if you're on the hunt for something even more bespoke, ELB offers a version with genuine gemstones like Aquamarine, Amethyst, and/or London Blue Topaz. Your wish is her (Heather's) command!
The Margeaux Bridal Leaf Swarovski Crystal Bejeweled Headpiece - $368

We’ve never seen such an insanely versatile headpiece, truly. It can work for the classic bride, with a tight chignon or slightly messy bun (a la Meghan Markle) and a ball gown, just as it works for a free-spirited boho bride, with her simple dress and long, flowing locks. And we’re in loveee with the different ways to wear it. Can be worn in the hair with or without ribbon ties, or as a bridal sash or belt. Oh yes.
But all the MM sparkle looked best with her #somethingblue
Our favorite part of the Duchess of Sussex’s wedding day look, was her reception jewelry, including that iconic emerald cut aquamarine cocktail ring from Princess Diana’s own collection. And ELB has a #somethingborrowed one JUST LIKE IT.
The Portsmouth Vintage Aquamarine and Diamond Engagement Ring - $9,850
We’re not 😍, you are.
The princess-approved pieces are PRICED awesomeLY, too!
"Heather, I just received my package.... there are absolutely NO words. I'm beyond stunned at the workmanship and perfection I'm looking at... I'm sure I'll have more words when my eyeballs are back in their sockets and my jaw is back off the floor... but right now - I'm just truly stunned. Really - my brain is frozen in this moment. Thank you doesn't begin to cover the feelings I have right now. It was the absolute perfect headpiece for me and for the simple dress I have. Thank you a thousand times. Truly impressive. Rivals the $77,000 diamond Tiara I was coveting! Your new BFF - forever…” ~ Linda
