The search for your wedding dress may be over, but your shopping is not done yet. Now, you will have to decide what type of bride accessories you want to complement your wedding look. When chosen carefully, bridal accessories enhance the beauty of your wedding gown and draw attention to the most attractive aspects of your outfit.
Brides today have a lot of options to choose from. From hair accessories to jewellery to gloves, there are quite a few bride accessories to investigate.
When it comes to how you should wear your hair, you have a lot of options – up, down, or in between. You can also opt to wear a hair accessory or maybe the traditional veil. From a short birdcage veil to a mid-length fingertip veil, or a super-long cathedral-length veil, there are lots of veil options to complement your dress.
Flowers make a natural hair accessory; you can choose a single blossom or a boho-chic flower crown. You can decide to wear fresh flowers in your hair or opt for fake flower accessories if you worried about the blooms wilting. There are also more glam hair accessories for brides seeking full-on statements like crystal tiaras, headbands, clips, hairpins, barrettes, combs, or bun wraps. When it comes to finding the perfect hair accessory, it is all about finding out what looks best with your dress and enhance the feel of your wedding day.
When shopping for bridal jewellery, again choose what looks best with your dress. For example, a strapless neckline dress will look great with a necklace, which might not work well with a detailed illusion neckline. Experts recommend avoiding goingoverboard with jewellery – one or two well-chosen pieces is all you may need to shine.
Gloves are a great addition for brides who want to achieve a very traditional, vintage-inspired look. You can choose from a variety of lengths, from wrist-length to over-the-elbow, in fabrics such as satin, lace, and crochet. Just remember that you will have to remove your gloves during the ceremony for ring exchange.
Jacket or Wrap
There are a few reasons brides choose to wear a shawl, wrap, jacket, or other forms of outerwear on their wedding day. The main of them is marrying in the chillier months but still, want to take photos outdoors. A faux fur wrap or stole can do the trick and even give your look a vintage-inspired touch. For a more casual look, brides have been using plaid flannel shirts, denim jackets and even cotton cardigans over their gown, for great photo-ops. If you are a traditional bride wearing a strapless gown, you might want to look for a bolero or shawl to match your gown.
Chances are you won’t want to carry a purse during your wedding because you will already be carrying your bouquet. However, there might be certain items that you’d like to have with you during the reception (makeup, breath mints, tissues). Put whatever you need in a purse or clutch and ask a bridesmaid or a family member, or a close friend to keep it safe for you
