When it comes to your big day, even the smallest of details matter. Bridal accessories can absolutely make your outfit and when chosen well they can take your bridal look to a whole new level of beauty.
Between veils jewellery, shoes, and other accessories, there can be a dizzying amount of choices to make, and you definitely don't want to go overboard and lose yourself in your outfit. After all, YOU are the star of the show.
When selecting bridal accessories such as headpieces, veils and belts, keep in mind that you are putting together an overall look. While each of the pieces you choose may be beautiful in their own way, it is important that they all compliment each other for a perfect overall look.
You accessories should not only match your dress, but also the overall theme of your wedding and your bridal look. For example, if you are planning a relaxed, rustic boho vibe wedding, a Barbie-style tiara encrusted with diamonds would not match the theme you are going for!
Keep it classic
It may be hard to resist an accessory that is very ‘on trend’. But, if it doesn’t match your outfit or suit your physical appearance, it’s best to not wear it. Also, keep in mind that ‘trendy’ pieces tend to date, whereas classic pieces will stand the test of time!
Think about Megan Markle - she had some beautiful accessories that will be forever classic. She was described on her wedding day as "classic" and "timeless". Her tiara dated back to 1932 and still looked just as stunning in 2018!
If you’re opting for a more classic, clean look, but still want to add some sparkle, why not add a headpiece, hair pin or hair vine for a pop of charm?
Don’t forget who you are!
Although it's a special day, try not to stray too far from your normal style. If you rarely wear jewellery at all, there's no need to drown yourself in diamonds on your wedding day. The overall goal is to look and feel like the best, most beautiful version of yourself.
