The Top 3 Rules for Accessorizing your Wedding Gown

You've found your dream gown after searching high and low!  Now it's time to put the whole ensemble together and purchase your accessories! Where do you even start? Here's a few of our top tips to consider when choosing accessories to wear on your Big Day! Blog C1 1. Consider The Style of Your Gown If you have an intricate lace or detailed back, choosing a thick, 3-layered veil is probably not the best option.  You want to enhance the beauty of your dress, (and yourself) not compete with it.  Choose a veil that has a beaded or lace trim for a simple gown, and pair it with a statement bracelet or earrings.  For a more intricate dress, choose something very understated that doesn't clash with the little details. Blog C3 2. Consider Your Personal Style No bride wants to look "cookie-cutter" on their wedding day, so try to infuse a little of your personal flare into the accessories. For example, if you love to wear a certain color in your everyday life, integrate a little pop of that color in your shoes, belt, or jewelry.  Try a sweater or bolero over your gown for a little fun costume change! Or you can always go outside the box with a blush or different hued gown! Nobody ever said you HAD to wear white!  After all, you should feel like a glammed-up better version of your everyday self! Blog C2 3. Don't Overlook the Details We understand- you've got so much excitement revolving around the dress when you're at your bridal appointment! But don't forget to try on accessories at your fitting so that you know exactly what looks perfect with your gown.  Did you try earrings? necklaces? bracelets? veils? headpieces? hair combs? garters? You definitely want to choose things that you not only like on the rack, but that compliment the style, color, and overall look of your gown.  Consider metal colors also.  If you've got beading on your gown, stick with that metal color to keep the flow going smoothly.   Photo Credit: Oncewed.com; Elleandjae.com
