You are lucky to be a bride in the 21st century, when there are lots of options to choose from and not that many rules to follow. Variety and styles of bridal accessories have been so much fun in the last few years. No matter what kind of theme you pick it is quite easy to accessorise.

Headpieces & Veils

There are tonnes of choices; from traditional to ultra modern looks.

If you are a funky bride-to-be, you might want to wear bridal blusher decorated with an ostrich feather or lace appliqué. Or perhaps your more boho and a floral garland or halo will be the perfect touch for your forest wedding. Then again, you may prefer a sparkling tiara to complete your princess style, or a long lace veil to enhace the formality and tradition of a beautiful church wedding.

Whatever your style, don’t be afraid to have a play with veils and hairpieces. They can really change and/or enhance the style of a gown.

That said, you don’t need to wear veil. It is a myth that without a veil you are just a pretty girl in a white dress. Every bride is unique and different and it’s your day!

If you decide to have a veil, choose something that will complement your wedding dress, not take away from it. It is a lot of fun to have veil and headpieces to mismatch. After the ceremony, you can take off your veil, and have a brand new bridal look.

Make sure to put discrete loop or grips underneath your headpiece, the last thing you want on your wedding day is a confounded look after a garland being blown away by wind or tiara falls in the middle of ceremony.

Bridal Belts & Sashes

Beautiful sash can significantly change the look of your bridal gown. In some cases sash or belt can even transfer it to totally different gown. There are a whole variety of sashes, color- and material- wise, with distinct amount of detailing. It can be cream, nude, blush, pink, purple, blue or even black sash, made of silk, lace, organza, velvet, and decorated with hand embroideries, crystals, pearls, flowers, feathers.

Having a hard time  picking one? Create your own! It will complete your bridal look and bring out true personality.

Quick tip: watch the width of your sash, it must flatter your body type.

Bridal Jewellery

Earrings, necklaces, brooches and bracelets accentuate a formality of the occasion. Rhinestones, pearls, crystals, gem stones will definitely make you shine like a star.

Be aware that jewellery should fit the silhouette of your wedding dress and be appropriate for its type of neckline, sleeve length, bodice etc.

 

Quick tip: if you are lucky to wear family heirloom jewellery, learn its history and meaning. You’re sure to get lots of questions.

Shoes

When it comes to wedding shoes, there are a million styles. Our best advice is

“Buy your favorite designer, you will enjoy wearing your wedding shoes long time after your wedding!”

If you are not used to dressing in high-heels, there are kitten or French heels to consider. Pumps and stilettos will be more comfy choices of heels. On top of style, color, and heel height, think of stability, it is better to get a secure heel hold or shoes with straps.

Do not forget to get additional padding for your wedding shoes, it will provide an additional feet support and comfort.

Quick tip: Always bring a pair of flats to rest your feet and go ahead, dance like nobody is watching.

There is no absolute rule when choosing accessories, but if there was one it would be –

“Be yourself, and have fun on your wedding day!”
