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

A Wedding Dress Essential!!

To all you brides out there that have the gown, shoes, and jewelry.... don't forget this other important accessory!! A slip for your gown is a wedding dress essential and may actually end up being one of your favorite purchases. Here's why! -Wearing a slip gives instant volume to a gown, and helps to show a great silhouette -The extra volume added underneath tranforms the dress, making it more lively -Prevents the gown from falling in between your legs -Helps your gown look photo ready because the layers are perfectly fluffed out There are different styles of slips that work best for each gown depending on the fit of the dress. For example, if you're wearing a fit and flare style, a mermaid slip will make sure that the gown keeps it's shape and doesn't fall flat. We just want to make sure that our brides are well equipped with all their accessories, and a wedding dress slip will definitely help out on their special day! (:  slippppps  

Perfect your wedding look with accessories!

A bride's wedding outfit is not complete without accessories!  From veils, jewelry, hairpieces, and belts, these accessories are all items that can perfect your appearance for your wedding day. Accessories are very important because it's those minor details that can help pull together and finish your look. There are many options and ways to accessorize for your wedding day, so we made it a little easier by brain storming a few ideas for you.  (: 1. Wear a veil at your ceremony that complements your wedding gown. Our wedding consultants are very knowledgeable on what veils match with your gown, so don't be shy to ask what will look good!   2. Find a colored sash or belt that matches your color theme. If your color theme incorporates neutral colors, opt for a pretty champagne or cream colored sash. If you want that extra sparkle, find a rhinestone belt that emphasizes how formal your wedding is. belts   3. Jewelry can complement the details in your wedding gown. If your dress has beautiful rhinestone beading, or delicate pearls, ask our bridal consultants to find you jewelry that plays off of that. The perfect necklace, earrings, or bracelet will accent those details and tie your entire look together. tf2 4. Switch up your hair style at your reception and get ready to dance and celebrate! Wear a fun head band or sparkly hair piece in place of your veil.
