227

It’s no secret that your dress is the make-or-break element of your look on the big day—but in no way should you overlook the rest of your ensemble.  While it might get most of the attention from your guests, wedding accessories like bridal jewellery, hairpieces, a veil, or a  stunning pair of gloves are some of the best ways to give your look that extra “oomph.” Wedding accessories like these can complete your outfit while also adding an element of glamour to your special day.

Hair Pieces and Crowns  

No matter your hair colour or the style you decide on modelling, there is a trendy bridal hair accessory to suit your taste. Hair combs and headbands are a simple way to add interest to any hairstyle. Bridal hair accessories can be found in beautiful designs such as pearls, rhinestones and crystals or feathers. Some are even made of silk flowers, like orchids.  
Tiaras are another bridal hair accessory that will add style and flair to your big day. You can wear a stunning wedding tiara with an updo or with your hair down for a more romantic look. Bridal headbands come in different styles including lace, ribbon, satin and more. Some wedding headbands have flower embellishments for a feminine look that is perfect for the bride who wants her hair up in an elegant style.

Lace combs and tiaras are also popular for the bride who wants her hair up but still wants to show off her beautiful face on her wedding day. These items might not be as traditional as some of the other wedding accessories that may have been passed down through generations in your family, but they are a great way to look elegant and sophisticated on your big day. You can find these pieces in a variety of styles and colours at a local retailer or online. A lace comb and a wedding tiara can come in several different sizes to fit just about anyone’s needs.

Try on a few different styles of lace combs and tiaras before deciding on the one that is right for you. This is especially important because some lace combs and tiaras fit better than others. You will want to make sure it fits comfortably on your head or around your hair without it being too loose or too tight. It is very important to try on some accessories before you commit to using them at your wedding because they will be on your head for the entire day.  

Bridal Jewelry

Jewellery is a wonderful accessory, which can make you look more elegant and stylish. The right choice of earrings and necklace can add glamour to your wedding day. So, when choosing the jewellery for your wedding, not only should you think about the style of your dress, but also you should consider what other accessories you will be wearing so that your jewellery matches them.

The first thing that you should consider is the colour of your dress. The most popular colours for bridal dresses are white, ivory and silver. White is a very popular colour for a wedding dress because it symbolizes purity and innocence. Ivory is a warm off-white colour that blends well with lots of different colours and other accessories. Silver is another popular choice because it looks good on brides who have lighter skin tones or light coloured eyes.

To match the colour of your wedding gown, you can use pearl jewellery or pearls earrings. Pearls come in different shades that match well with most shades of white and ivory dresses. If your dress has some sparkle to it, you can wear rhinestone jewellery to add some glitter to your outfit. Rhinestones come in a variety of colours; choose one that matches the colour of your dress.  

Bridal Veil

There are many different varieties of veils for brides to choose from, but it is important to make sure that the one you choose will complement your dress and fit into your overall wedding theme.

Wedding veils can be made from a variety of different materials including tulle, nylon and lace. You can also choose between short and long veils depending on what style you are looking for. For example, short veils are great if you like the antique look or if you are planning on wearing a vintage gown that has already been in a previous wedding.

When choosing your bridal veil, it is important to keep in mind that they do not have to be expensive to look great and have sentimental value. If you have an old veil or if your parents or grandparents have one that they are willing to give you, this is a great option since these types of veils often provide a lot of character that would not be present in one that cost several hundred dollars.  

Bridal Gloves

Wedding gloves will set the tone of your wedding and add extra elegance to your big day. When choosing gloves, you have to remember that they are an essential part of the overall look of your wedding dress and should be chosen carefully. The style of your dress will determine what type of gloves you should choose. For example, if you have a more traditional style dress, you could choose cotton or satin gloves. If you want a vintage look, lace gloves could be the right choice for you.

The colour of these accessories is also very important. Again, it will depend on the colour of your dress. It is important to choose a colour that complements your dress, rather than draws attention away from it.  

Clutch

If you feel like carrying a clutch on your big day, it is important to choose the right one for the occasion. It should of course match your dress and complement it, but it should also have enough space for the things you need during the ceremony and/or reception.

A clutch can be of any size, but you will probably want one that is not too large or too small. You might also want to consider choosing a clutch that has a strap so that you can wear it over your shoulder. The strap will allow you to move around more freely without having to worry about dropping your bag. This is especially useful if you are planning on dancing at your reception.  

Summing Up

Wedding accessories are always a good option for a bridal look, but there is also care that needs to be taken in their selection. While you want to look beautiful on your wedding day, you do not want to go overboard with the number of accessories that you have. So, pick those that go well with your dress without overdoing anything.
