It is said that accessories can bring life to even the most plain and simple outfit. Belts, bangles, plus the right pair of shoes can transform a shirt and jeans combination to a glam night out attire. This is true even for the most glamorous outfits like wedding gowns. It is very important that a bride looks her best during her wedding day. She should feel like she is the most beautiful woman on this special occasion and so, the proper accessories are needed to achieve a distinct look for a bride.
First of all, the accessories would all depend on what the bride’s gown looks like. Make sure that each accessory suits her overall look. Some pieces might look out of place if it isn’t in keeping with the wedding’s theme and the bridal gowns style. If the gown is the traditional conservative one, pearls will do in accentuating the look. If the gown is more modern or contemporary, bold accessories that match the bridal gown would be great. Also, the bride should try wearing the jewellery together with the gown to see if there are adjustments to be made with necklaces that are too long and such, or if you need to replace a jewellery piece with a new one.
Second, choose a pair of shoes that the bride would be comfortable in even if she would be wearing it for the whole day. Wear this pair to every gown fitting so that the length of the gown could be determined. There are some bridal gowns that turned out to be too long because brides did not wear their shoes for the wedding during the fitting so future brides should make sure they don’t make the same mistake. Also, try walking with the shoes at home so that during the wedding, the bride will not have uncomfortable moments because of the wrong kind of footwear.
The bride can also choose to wear gloves as another accessory to her gown. If the gown has short sleeves or is sleeveless, gloves should be long while for gowns that have long sleeves, short gloves will do. The gloves should be the same colour as the gown, as some gowns are made with an off-white shade. It wouldn’t look good if the gown and the gloves do not match.
It is also essential that the stockings are of a shade close to the wedding dress or that which is of skin tone. Undergarments should also be comfortable because there are some bras that are itchy after some time and those which straps show in the gown. Brides should opt to use strapless bras to avoid the hassle of straps coming out if their gowns have a square neckline or if it has short sleeves. Make sure to fit the bra along with the wedding gown so that necessary adjustments with undergarments can be done.
Wedding accessories are as important as the essential parts of the bride and groom’s attires. These are essential in dressing up the couple to look their best. Just remember that accessories must be in keeping with the couple’s wedding theme.
