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.

10 Reasons Why You Should Get Naked More Often

10 Reasons Why You Should Get Naked More Often

Getting naked is often thought of as an act that should only be reserved for intimacy—and even then some get squirmy! Many people are more comfortable believing that the more clothes you are wearing the better. However, getting naked more often can have great benefits for you. Here are 10 great reasons to get naked more often:

1. It burns more fat.

Your body’s main supply of brown adipose tissue (BAT), or good fat cells, are located around your shoulder blades and neck. When your body is exposed to the elements and is cooler, the BAT proliferates and essentially kills the white adipose tissue, aka bad fat cells. So, not wearing any clothes helps promote this and makes you healthier.

2. You’ll become comfortable with who you are.

Self-acceptance is hard to come by today. Ask anyone you know and see if they are happy with themselves. Chances are they will say they are too fat, not pretty, and find all of the flaws that they can. In reality, others do not see this. They see that you are beautiful. When you begin to get naked, you learn to appreciate your body and realize how beautiful you really are.

3. It saves you money.

Being naked more often saves on buying new clothing since you are wearing nothing a lot of the time. Be careful when you are in public, though—you may have to put on some clothes!

4. It increases your immune system.

Being naked and getting exposure to the sun’s rays actually increases your body’s vitamin D levels. Vitamin D is directly related to your immune system. When you have optimal levels of vitamin D, your body’s immune system is impeccable, and you will be better equipped to ward off viruses, including the common cold and flu. So go lay outside naked on your private balcony or in your yard.

5. It makes you face your fears head on.

People cringe today when you mention the words “get naked.” They are so afraid of it—and today’s children are so ingrained with this—that they must wear layer upon layer to deal with their body image. However, when you are naked, you face your fears of body image and self-acceptance, experiencing some of the best moments of your life.

6. You will feel better in your clothes.

When you do wear clothes (because not everyone has yet accepted being naked in public), you will start to choose clothing that accentuates the parts of your body that you love. You will begin to notice that maybe that muumuu does not flatter your beautiful curves and start wearing clothes that you love.

7. You will embrace vulnerability.

When you put yourself out there, it is a natural reaction to have fear and worry. However, this is an opportunity to embrace being vulnerable. It allows you to think and get down to the core of what really matters and what is of importance to you. When you strip away all of the excess, you are 100% you and willing to take on anything that comes your way.

8. You will show the world the real you.

Today, we have many ways of altering our appearance from our true body image when we wear clothing. Some people alter their image so much that they fear getting naked with the person they love. It seems crazy that this could even happen; however, the rise in use of breast-enhancing bras and Spanx products has put this idea into people’s minds. This all goes back to being comfortable with your true body image. If a person really does love you, then they should not love you based upon your image. If they do, then you may even decide that the ever-so-uncomfortable leggings that go up above your waist to hold in all of the imperfections may not be worth it after all.

9. You will have fun.

Well, this could go in all sorts of directions. But when you are comfortable with your naked body and see it as being flattering, then life is more fun. You start realizing that you are beautiful and are willing to do more things that you probably would not have done otherwise—with and without your clothes on.

10. You can have intercourse with the lights on.

Many people are self-conscious about the way they look and decide that the less lighting the better when they are intimate with their partner. It’s nothing new. If you survey your best friends, you will probably come to this conclusion too. They may say that it even gets awkward, because they are more concerned with what their partner thinks of their body than just having and enjoying amazing intercourse. When you love the way you look naked, you will also want to have your partner see you at your best.

What are you waiting for? Start spending more time in the buff today and begin to change the way you think about your body.
