Bridal Look | The Accessories

A wedding dress is not completely without accessories, and when it comes to your bridal attire, you want to look the best you’ve ever done for your big day. Accessories can often be an afterthought, but they can transform your wedding outfit into something more with just a few simple additions. Just look at this guide to wedding dress accessories. Here are five accessories to complete your bridal look.
The Shoes

Possibly the most important accessories are the shoes. For a bridge, these can make or break how comfortable you feel on the wedding day. The wedding shoes should be like your wedding dress in that they fit comfortably and don’t provide you with any discomfort throughout the day. When you have your bridal shoes, it’s a good idea to wear them in properly and do a trial run of wearing them for a full day to see how they perform. Do this after you’ve got your wedding dress and make sure you are taking them to your fittings so that the bridal shop can tailor your dress to the actual height you’ll be on the day. There are an array of options to choose from for a bridal shoe, whether you want stiletto heels or customised converse trainers. It depends on what you prefer and the style of your wedding dress. If you don’t feel comfortable wearing heels then depending on the dress, you may well be able to get away with something flatter if the dress covers it.
As a precaution, it’s a good idea to have a spare pair of shoes to swap in should it get uncomfortable at any point. Plasters and comfort insoles are also a good thing to have within the bridal party.

Accessories For The Hair
However you have your hair styled for the day, there’s always the option to jazz it up a little with accessories. It could be some flowers to match your bridal flowers or a faux floral headband or hairpin. The veil is something that not everyone always opts for, but it’s another hair accessory that’s worth spending the money on if it goes with the hairstyle you’ve chosen. These small touches to your hair’s appearance can actually end up making it a huge difference and even improve the way it already looks. When choosing hair accessories, it’s a good idea to let your hairstylist know what you’ve got so that they can incorporate it effortlessly into the hairstyle on the day. You should ideally have a hair trial before the wedding, so you have the hairstyle you want on your mind when shopping for accessories.
 The Floral Touches
And with the mention of flowers, your bridal flowers are the ultimate accessory on your wedding day. These floral touches will add a splash of colour to your dress as many commonly opt for white or ivory as their colour choice of dress. It’s good to make sure that the flowers tie in with the overall colour scheme of the wedding if you have one and that the type of flowers matches the bridal party too. Flowers are something that is worth spending money on, and it’s certainly worth having a part of your floral arrangement, pressed and sealed in a frame as a keepsake afterwards.
Styling It With Jewellery
Jewellery is something that adds a little bit of bling to the day. Even though you’ll be gaining an extra ring on your wedding day, there’s no reason why you can’t splash the cash a little on some new pieces. Consider what’s already on your dress, whether it’s long-sleeved or short-sleeved, has a plunging neckline or a sweetheart neckline, for example. This will dictate what length and type of jewellery you opt for and what sort of material you pick. If you fancy going down the traditional route of something borrowed, then you may have a piece of jewellery that a family member can lend or gift you for the special day.

The Underwear
And finally, it’s the type of accessory that only you and your partner will see, but the underwear is something you might want to think about. Not just to feel sexy but to also be functional for your wedding dress. Whether you wear a strapless bra, fancy some stockings, or a traditional garter, the underwear is an indulgence for yourself and to make you feel as good underneath as you do on the outside.
These five accessories are all worth considering for your own wedding attire. You only get to do this once, so treat yourself.
