Wedding Fashion & Style Wedding Accessories

Choosing your wedding accessories should be considered almost as high as a priority as choosing your wedding dress. There is no point in however choosing your wedding accessories before picking out your wedding dress. Your tiara, headpiece, necklace, bracelet etc. has to complement your wedding dress rather than detract from it. If you are going for a very simple wedding dress, you might want to consider going for more sparkly/bling wedding accessories. If on the other hand you have chosen a very dramatic wedding dress, here at Style & the Bride, we definitely think you should go for the ‘less is more’ approach when it comes to your wedding accessories. When it comes to your wedding shoes, we suggest that you take your wedding dress with you before making your choice. It is obviously important that you choose a heel height and shoe style that suits the type of wedding dress you have chosen. When it comes to wedding accessories for your hair, in other words tiaras, headbands etc., it is imperative that you think about your wedding hairstyle sooner rather than later. If you are going for an up do, you might want to consider choosing a simple tiara. If on the other hand you are wearing your hair down, you might want an elegant hair comb or a silk flower. If you are unsure about which wedding accessories to choose, we suggest you go with your mum or best friend/bridesmaid to help you decide. The sooner you go shopping for your wedding accessories, the sooner you can tick wedding accessories off your wedding ‘to do’ list. When it comes to inspiration for wedding accessories, a great place to look is in the real weddings section of Style & the Bride. Depending on the style of your wedding, look in the section i.e. country, city, which is most relevant.
