Accessorizing The Bride - Tips & Tricks
Posted on February 29, 2016
Match your metals
For Ivory dresses, go with gold. The gold brings out the cream of the dress and gives a soft, warm feeling to your bridal look. Pair sparkly silver or platinum with a white dress. This makes the white stand out more.
It doesn’t always have to be a veil
It’s understandable that as a bride, you want every detail to be uniquely you. Instead of a veil, entertain the idea of headpieces and hairpins encrusted with crystal and dainty details.
Want to give the illusion of curves? Add a satin ribbon with a brooch for extra glam and the appearance of an hourglass figure. Remember, just because your dress didn’t come with one, doesn’t mean it won’t look great! Be sure not to go too thick on the satin ribbon, that way nothing is taken away from the dress.
Know Your Neckline
Unless your gems will be something borrowed, your choice of accessories truly matters when it comes to the neckline of your dress. Always choose a style that won’t overpower or draw any attention away from you, or the dress.
Sweetheart or Strapless: Try a pair of chandelier earrings instead of a necklace with this neckline. The earrings will elongate the neck and won’t take away from the dress itself.
Off The Shoulder: A statement necklace that falls slightly shorter will compliment the neckline and add broadness to the shoulders, creating an effortless, elegant look.
