Accessorizing The Bride - Tips & Tricks

Posted

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.



Quick Fix

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.



V-Neck: A light Y necklace or choker is a perfect pairing for this neckline. The combination flows and adds a little extra something to the bare chest.



Halter: Go for punchy Crystals or a birthstone hue. A choker or a statement necklace will do the trick.



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.
