Your Wedding Dress Needs All The Right Accessories

Your Wedding Dress Needs All The Right Accessories

You’ve got the perfect wedding dress, comfortable shoes, and even picked out the right hairstyle for your big day… but something’s missing? If you’re going to turn heads as you walk down that aisle, you’re going to need to make sure that you accessorize. Sure the wedding dress is the main attraction, but when you have the right accessories complimenting the style of the gown and your natural beauty, your husband-to-be won’t be able to take his eyes off you.

Consider the Dress

Selecting the right wedding accessories can be a bit confusing. You don’t want things to stand out too much and overpower the dress, but you also don’t want to purchase things that are too subtle and therefore a waste of money. The trick is to keep your dress in mind at all times.

For example, if you happen to be wearing a dress with lots of intricate details like Stella York wedding dresses from Essense Designs then you would go for accessories that are more subtle so the dress can stand out. However, if you’re wearing a dress that is more simplistic in style, you can go for accessories that are a bit more vibrant so that it accents the dress. Taking a picture of the dress or bringing a swatch of fabric along with you as you shop for accessories is a great way to make sure they go well together.

Not quite sure what accessories to get? Here’s a suggested list below:

Tiara or Headpiece

Headpieces are common bridal accessories. They help to bring attention to your hairstyle and can also accent certain features on the dress. You can choose something more traditional like a studded tiara or headband. However, you can also consider headpieces like flowers, beads, jewels, or even hats.

Statement Neckless

Unless your dress has a high neck you should most certainly get a statement neckless. It will help to compliment the neckline. A string of pearls, nice diamond necklace, or even a simplistic gold or silver chain with an elegant charm would suffice.

Purse or Clutch

Though you probably won’t carry a purse down the aisle or pose with it in pictures, you will need a small purse or clutch to keep your personal belongings in. To bring a little color to your “all white” ensemble, you could get a purse that matches the bridal party. Of course, no accessory is complete without a little bling, so even finding a clutch with gemstones on it would be nice.

Undergarments

What’s on the outside of the dress is just as important as what is underneath. You’ll need the right undergarments to make everything “sit in its place.” This not only includes things like a matching bra and panty set, but it also means practical things like an underskirt that makes it easier for you to use the restroom.

Covering

Depending on the style of dress you have and the time of year it is, you may want to consider some type of covering. A shall, shrug, or cape can serve a dual purpose – keep you warm and make you look great. You can try to go with basic colors like white, ivory, silver, or gold, or you can opt to go with another color in your wedding theme.

Earrings & Bracelet

Jewelry shopping is always fun, and while you don’t want your other jewelry to outshine that gorgeous wedding ring, you can add a few statement pieces. A nice pair of earrings and a bracelet are great choices.

Shopping for wedding accessories should be all about the glitz and glam. You’re in the homestretch of your wedding planning, and all that’s left is a few finishing details. Dress…check. Hair…check.  Accessories…check. Now all that’s left to do is turn on that magic, walk down that aisle, and claim your man.
