Basic rules for selecting the right accessories

Basic rules for selecting the right accessories


Yes, there are basic rules that apply when you are selecting the right accessories to achieve the perfect bridal look. Below we are going to share a few of them with you.

●     Less is more

If you are wearing a gown that has minimal embellishment, and if the shoulders are bare, you can wear a more elaborate necklace, earrings, and headpiece. You will still look chic and not overdone.  However, if the gown you choose has a fuller neckline, lots of lace or beadwork, you want to go simple with the jewelry.

●     Metals matter

  • The hue of your wedding gown makes a difference in the selection of the metals you wear with it. Here are the basics:
    • Ivory or cream dress – wear yellow gold
    • Pure white gowns – opt for platinum or silver and add pearls for a classic look
    • Diamond white dress – you can wear any metal. Platinum, silver, yellow gold, white gold, or rose gold.

If your gown already has beaded or metal embellishments

If you select a gown that has metal on the gown, wear the same color accessories, but wear them sparingly. You have selected a gown that does not need jewelry. If you want finishing touches like earrings or a simple necklace, match it to the decorations on the gown.

Learn about your veil

A veil is a must have for many brides. However, a few simple rules should be followed to bring your look together.

Your veil must be the exact shade of your gown. If you wear a diamond white veil with an ivory dress, it will look tacky and unprofessional.

The back of your dress must be stunning. During the ceremony, the back of the dress is what your friends and family see. Be sure the veil is the correct length and material to allow the dress to be seen. You may opt for a veil that stops just past the shoulders. You could opt for a cathedral length that attaches to the waist of the gown. You may want a long veil that begins at the crown of your hair and trails eight feet behind you. If you do, consider a veil made of tulle.

It is your wedding. There is no right way or wrong way to have it. These tips are there to help you have a wedding that you can be proud of. These simple and chic wedding tips have been present at many celebrity weddings.

Bonus tip: If you are 5’ tall and you want to look taller, so you buy a longer dress and a pair of 5” heels, you are going to have a hard time walking in them. You will be on your feet most of the day, and you will soon figure out that this was not a good idea. If you manage to walk in the shoes gracefully, there is still the chance that by the time the reception and photos are over, you will have a less than happy look on your face. The love of your life fell in love with all 5 feet of you. No one expects you to grow for the wedding. Be comfortable and be happy.
