Accessories can truly make or break your bridal outfit. Jewellery, headpieces and shoes are a great way to really make a statement and are a fun way to incorporate the theme of your wedding. Here are a few things to keep in mind when choosing your bridal accessories.
Firstly, choosing your accessories should be secondary to choosing a gown! It is far easier to find accessories with your wedding dress in mind, so that you can choose pieces that will complement the style and colour. For example, if your dress is white, silver toned pieces will work best, whereas ivory and cream look amazing teamed with gold.
Adding too many accessories can be overkill, especially if your dress is heavily embellished. If you choose to wear a headpiece, it should complement your dress rather than dominate it. The same applies with jewellery – a simple dress allows you to be bolder in your choices, whereas an ornate dress design may require more delicate jewellery.
Ensure that you have at least one fitting with your hair and make-up how you plan to have it on the day. This will allow you to see how everything fits together; even the shade of lipstick you wear can be crucial when tying in key colours incorporated in your accessories and overall theme.
With all this in mind, it is important to remember that the main focus is you! If you feel like your accessories detract too much attention away from you and your dress then simplicity is the best way to go. Add or remove items and see how this affects your overall look; most brides know what best suits them best.
