Choosing the right bridal accessories is an important part of completing your wedding day look. There are so many designs to choose from now, from tiaras to hair combs, to veils to all the jewellery too; it can be sometimes a bit overwhelming. Ultimately we say, choose what you love but if you are still unsure here are some tips to help you choose the perfect bridal accessories:
Consider your dress
Your bridal accessories should ideally complement your wedding dress. Take the style and design of your dress into consideration when choosing your accessories. For example, if your dress has a lot of embellishments or details, you may want to choose simpler accessories. If you have a minimal dress then you could go overboard with headpieces!
Think about your personal style
Your bridal accessories should reflect your personal style. If you’re someone who likes to keep things simple and minimalistic, then you may want to choose understated accessories. If you’re someone who likes to make a statement, then you may want to choose bolder accessories. You do you!
Consider the theme of your wedding
If you’re having a themed wedding, you may want to choose accessories that fit in with the theme. For example, if you’re having a beach wedding, you may want to choose accessories that have a beachy feel to them. Large flower crowns work perfectly for boho weddings in the woods.
Don’t forget about comfort
Your bridal accessories should not only look good but feel good too. Make sure that you choose accessories that are comfortable to wear, especially if you’ll be wearing them for an extended period of time.
Try before you buy
Before you make a final decision, try on your bridal accessories with your wedding dress. This will give you a better idea of how everything looks together and whether any adjustments need to be made. This can be sometimes tricky depending on whether you buy online or in real life, but the ideal scenario is you buy your dress first and then try on accessories while wearing it.
Consider the season
The season you’re getting married in can also influence your choice of accessories. For example, in the colder months, you may want to consider a faux fur wrap or a cosy shawl to keep you warm.
Keep it balanced
Make sure that your bridal accessories are balanced with your dress. If your dress has a lot of volumes, you may want to choose smaller accessories. If your dress is more simple, you may want to choose accessories that add some sparkle and shine.
Remember, your bridal accessories should enhance your wedding day look, not overpower it. With these tips in mind, you’ll be able to choose the perfect accessories to complement your dress and personal style. Saying that, the most important factor when choosing is that you LOVE IT!
