One of the most important tasks for a bride planning her wedding is to put together her ensemble. While many brides focus heavily on the choice of wedding dress, they are often neglectful when choosing accessories. Even the most beautiful wedding gown will look plain without some well thought out wedding accessories. Here are some things to consider when putting together your look for the big day.
Jewellery is one of the easiest ways to make the most of your bridal beauty. Whether you choose a necklace, bracelet, earrings, or all of them, it is important to choose styles that play up your dress without stealing the show. Diamonds and pearls are always elegant choices, and tend to maximize the impact of most wedding dresses.
Stockings and Shoes
Another important consideration when building your bridal wardrobe is that of stockings and shoes. For the best results, try them on with the dress to see how the overall look blends together. Depending upon your dress fabric and style, you may choose shoes made of satin, velvet, and silk as well as those with crystals, pearls, beads, sequins, or other embellishments. It is also important that your shoes are comfortable, since you will be walking and standing in them a great deal. The most elegant bride can easily ruin her look by limping down the aisle.
A great number of brides choose the elegant look of white wedding gloves for their big days. Strapless wedding gowns are so much more beautiful with long satin gloves. A good rule of thumb when shopping for wedding gloves is to wear longer gloves in proportion to the shortness of the sleeves.
While you will not be carrying a handbag down the aisle or during your reception, you will still need an elegant way to carry necessities with you. Find a small purse that is still large enough to hold your phone, perfume, make-up, hairpins, safety pins, and a small sewing kit in case of emergencies. A simple clutch looks great with most wedding gown styles and will carry all of the necessities.
Accessories are an important part of any bridal ensemble. The bride can use accessories to play up her best features and to showcase her wedding gown. Because of their importance, accessories should be chosen with the same careful consideration that goes into every other part of the wedding plan.
