Wedding Accessories 101

Wedding accessories cover everything except the dress, head to toe, literally. Thinking about wedding accessories is one of the important details that aren’t pieced together all at once.

Once you say yes to the dress, next comes the veil. Does this one match? Do I want lace or no lace? What length do I want it to be? There are so many options, and it’s one of the first details that need to be determined before anything else.

After that comes the shoes. Some people go casual with converse or flats; some want blingy stilettos! If you want it to match your dress, take note of the detail on the dress first and foremost. Blingy shoes don’t necessarily match an all lace dress unless you plan to make a statement that way. At the end of the day, it’s all about what you want!

Do you plan to wear jewelry? Notice the neckline of your dress and see how a necklace would look. Strapless gowns look beautiful with statement necklaces because there is so much blank space, where an illusion high neckline would look cluttered and busy with a necklace.

Earrings and bracelets are in the same ballpark, which would complement your dress best?
