How To Choose Your Wedding Accessories

When you think about planning your wedding, you have a long list of things that you need to do. If you choose to get a wedding planner, they’re the ones paid to remember all of the things that need to be remembered to make your wedding magical. There are thousands of things that you need to consider, from the dress to the cars and the venue. The build up to your big day involves a lot of stress, but your wedding accessories have to be considered as early as possible.

Being able to try on popular wedding dress designs is going to be better when you have your underwear, but it’s also helpful to have your accessories with you to see the completed look. The last thing that you want to have is a new barrette and find that it looks ridiculous with the veil you bought. As the bride, your appearance really matters to feel confident and beautiful on your wedding day. So, here’s some of the best tips you could use to choose your wedding accessories.

  • Less Is More. Your wedding dress should be elegant and beautiful, but too many accessories can turn elegance into tacky in an instant. You want to make the gown stand out among everything else, and the accessories should enhance your gown, not make it look worse! Coloured jewellery, for example, may not be the best look if the rest of your wedding is about simplicity and elegance. Know your theme, your wedding look and dress it up appropriately. Less is definitely more.
  • Traditional Or Not? Some accessories are traditional one that hold up over time, like pearls, but there are others that won’t stand the test of time. You want a wedding look that can carry. You may want to pass your accessories to your daughter one day, and so accessories really do count. Choosing classic diamonds over trendy chunky earrings may be the best way forward.
  • Something Borrowed. If you want to follow the “Something Old, Something New” rhyme, you should look at borrowing accessories from relatives. An older diamond tiara, for example, could make your wedding look really stand out. You can live up to the traditional rhyme and look beautiful all at once.
  • Something Versatile. Some accessories can be reused over and over again for your everyday look. Choose those that can sit in your jewellery box and be used through the year!  You may not think versatility is a good idea for your wedding accessories as this is your wedding day, but you could really maximise your wedding budget.

It doesn’t matter what you choose for your big day as long as you love the accessories. You should feel elegant, confident and comfortable in your wedding attire, and if you don’t, then it’s time to change out the accessories that you have. Think about how your accessories look with your dress and your chosen makeup and hair look, and then go down the aisle in style.
