6 Tips for Accessorizing Your Wedding Dress
You’ve found your perfect dress, but how do you accessorize it without taking away from its (or your) breathtaking beauty? Here are six tips to ensure your wedding fashion details are the right ones for your dress:
1. Don’t Overdo It: The biggest wedding fashion rule is less is more, especially if your dress is already elaborate. Too much jewelry and bling distracts from your natural bridal glow—you want yourself to be the focus, not your accessories!
2. Match Metals: Try matching your metal of choice to your dress (i.e., ivory fabric with gold, silver and pearl with bright white). Mixing metals—even rose gold with gold—will detract from your desired look.
3. Use your Headpiece: Remember that your veil can totally change your bridal look, and pick the right veil for your gown and venue (i.e., cathedral length for church weddings). If a traditional veil isn’t for you, consider using a birdcage veil, floral crown or bridal comb instead.
4. Get Creative: If you’re up for it, add something unique or a “talking piece” to your gown. Opt for a colorful bridal sash, fur wrap, or even a choker necklace.
5. Choose the Right Shoes: Some dresses have height requirements depending on your height and the length of the dress. Look for bridal shoes that are comfortable for standing and dancing, choose a pair with a fun and flirty design, and don’t forget that you can always add bridal shoe clips for some extra bling and personality.
6. Dress for Comfort: Squeezing into a hot and heavy dress isn’t anyone’s idea of relaxation, but you’ll feel most comfortable if you feel like you still look like yourself. Accessorize as you would normally for a formal occasion.
