To help lessen the wedding day stress, there are a few bridal do’s and don’ts with accessories that brides can stick to so they can avoid any mishaps. There isn’t anything that a bride isn’t allowed to do, it’s their special day and guests will never comment on something that may not go with the outfit. This guide will help brides make some good decisions and hopefully inspire some ideas.
Pick the Dress First
Likely the most important part of the day (including getting married) picking the dress first is key to match all your accessories with it. It only makes picking the dress harder if you become committed to certain accessories that might not match the dress you like. The dress is the centerpiece of the whole outfit so it’s important to love it over everything else you pick.
The perfect excuse to finally wear a crown and be the most important person in the room, for any other occasion a tiara might be overkill but on your wedding day finding the perfect one to match your dress is a great idea. If you’re not the type to wear flashy accessories a tiara might not be the best idea, but there are still plenty of ideas to consider headbands, fascinators and bridal hats are all common choices.
Use Complementary Accents for the Bridal Party
It’s hard to ignore the ladies who make the day possible, and possibly matching a subtle accessory to them is a nice final touch. Maybe even make it a gift for them, look at designer watch brands or ladies jewellery that you think will match the gowns.
Often, a bride can like the idea of an accessory more so than wearing it. Some accessories may look nice but you’ll find them to be uncomfortable after a full day of wearing them. On your wedding day, you want to look amazing but also feel amazing, you might struggle to concentrate of enjoying the day if your heels are too high or jewellery is irritating you, being comfortable is key to a wonderful wedding day.
It’s the easiest thing in the world to overspend on your wedding day, especially on your appearance. Making sure you don’t overdo it on accessories, jewellery and make-up will keep the attention on you and not the overbearing outfit. The idea with accessories is for them to complement the dress and your appearance and not steal the show away from yourself.
This isn’t to say that you must buy the most expensive accessories but there are reasons to avoid cheaper alternatives. Rhinestones, for example, don’t reflect light properly and whilst taking a photo it can ruin the shot, another risk with cheap jewellery is skin irritation, you don’t want to be focused on an itch or discoloration on your big day.
Compelled to Stick to Tradition
Most girls dream of a white wedding, white dress, satin gloves and pearls. Wedding trends have changed vastly over the years and if you find that some accessories don’t work for the look, don’t feel the need to have it all. With jewellery, more colour options have been popular over the year so don’t feel compelled to stick to white.
Leave it Until the Last Minute
Planning is key to reducing stress for the wedding day, picking the dress and accessories should be a fun part of the planning and leaving it to the last minute will take that enjoyment away. Rushing choices and being disappointed with alternatives are likely outcomes if you leave this choice until the last minute.
