Accessories are an important part of any outfit, they finish it off and make it complete. So choosing the right wedding accessories is an important decision.
Whether you love being the centre of attention or are more the shy retiring type, on your wedding day all eyes will be on you. Having the right accessories will add the wow factor to your dress and make you feel more confident and extra special on your day.
One of the big things brides to be get wrong when looking for accessories is that they decide what they like before picking their wedding dress. This is a mistake as when you pick your wedding dress you could go for something completely different to what you had imagined and in my experience brides often do.
Buy your dress before the accessories
So my top tip when buying wedding accessories is rather than buying accessories before your wedding dress, take photos of any accessories you like or even keep a log on Pinterest (also a great way to pin ideas generally for your wedding day) so you have something to go back to when your wedding dress is chosen. For those brides to be coming into see me at The Bridal Boutique in Warwickshire, bring in your ideas when trying on your wedding dress and I can help piece together the whole outfit.
Be true to your own style
With wedding accessories, it is important to stick to your own personal style as accessories are a great way to add your personality to your outfit. However now is the time to not be too conservative. Remember that this is your big day and your day to shine.
Be wary when it comes to fashionable pieces. If you base your look on what’s in now, your dress may look incredibly dated on your wedding photographs in years to come, so consider whether this is an issue to you. You may not mind this, as it represents the time that you got married. If you are concerned about this, vintage pieces and classic jewellery will never go out of fashion. However saying that I love a fashion lead bride, one that is not afraid to be that little bit different and some of the best photographs mothers of the bride have shown me on their wedding day are the ones that are of the moment and really show you the sense of an era and time gone by. If your a classic bride and want your photos to be ageless this is not the route for you, stick to timeless pieces and you will look equally as amazing on your big day.
From day to evening
With so many stunning bridal accessories, it may be near impossible to decide what to go for. If this is the case, why not change your wedding accessories throughout the day? You could choose a traditional look for the ceremony and go for bolder jewellery during the evening reception. This way you don’t need to choose between your favourite accessories and can have the best of both words.
