You said “Yes” to the proposal, found your dress and are well on the way to tackling that wedding planning to-do list. Feeling like you have it all under control, but make sure to not forget some essential items that you need on your wedding day. Bridal accessories are the key to pulling your ultimate bridal look together and putting the finishing touches on what is sure to be an unforgettable wedding! Here are the top 6 bridal accessories you will need on your wedding day!
No wedding day is complete without a little décor for the bride’s hair. Whether you want to be dramatic with a huge flower crown, or soft and subtle with delicate hairpins, you have to add a little extra pizazz to your hairstyle. Choose from a tiara full of rhinestones and bling, headband adorned with pearls, flower hairpin or of course a flower crown, there truly is something for every bride’s personality and style. But whatever your style, make sure to add this accessory to your to-do list…it’s a must for your wedding day!
Once you find the perfect wedding dress the next step is to choose the jewellery that will complete your bridal look. Consider the style of your wedding dress when shopping for your bridal jewellery. If you have a high neck wedding dress you won’t need a necklace but some fabulous drop earrings would look amazing! If you have a strapless gown, you may choose a dramatic choker, a bold and sparkly chunky necklace or a soft and demur drop pendant. The neckline and colour of your gown are important factors in choosing your jewellery. Stick to the same jewel tones, you don’t want to clash on your wedding day.
Every bride doesn’t need a purse on her wedding day but if your wedding gown doesn’t have pockets you might want to consider adding this accessory. There are a lot of beautiful clutch purses that are great for your wedding day. We recommend that you choose jewellery that matches the tone of your gown. If you have silver details on your dress make sure to have a silver or crystal clutch, and if you have gold or champagne tones on your gown get a purse with gold tones. Keep it simple and find a small purse that compliments the colour of your gown. You only need it to fit your essentials (phone, mirror, lipstick) and get ready for the best day of your life!
Wedding Veil or Cape
The “love” or “hate” relationship with the bridal veil exists in today’s society. Luckily, no matter what your preference is there are trendy and beautiful options for either a veil or cape. Looking for something more traditional? Opt for a veil that has a few decorative details that resemble your gown. And if you are more modern, not wanting a lot of fuss around the face, a stunning (and dramatic) cape is the best way to go.
Your wedding day kicks are everything in today’s world. Photographers have become so creative and witty and mastered the art of capturing the “best of” and in the past “taboo” moments at weddings. We celebrate ALL brides (and photographers) that relish in the unique and personal…after all your story is only yours. There are no two love stories alike. But the reality is, ALL brides need shoes for their wedding day. Traditional white or ivory shoes are great, flip flops for the beach or a free-spirited pair of Chuck Taylors (Converse) will suffice! Just do you, girl!
We’re pretty sure we don’t need to elaborate too much on this subject. 😊But just a little side note, yes! you want to feel beautiful on your wedding day but don’t go too crazy. It will be a long and sometimes anxiety-filled event. Find some undergarments that are comfortable and sexy for your ceremony and reception. If necessary, buy something else to change into for the wedding night.
Wedding day accessories are just as important as your wedding dress as they complete your overall bridal look. Make sure to stay true to yourself and the overall colour tones of your gown to finish the most memorable bride style ever!
