Most Popular Wedding Accessories

The star of your wedding ensemble is, of course, your dress. It’s the accessories, however, that can make or break this leading role. Choose them with care.

There are many things to consider when you accessorize for your wedding – jewelry, shoes, veil, and much more. Everything looks so pretty, how to do decide? The foremost rule is, be true to yourself. If your style is boho-chic, you may not feel comfortable in pearls, but you’ll shine in feather earrings. The second rule is, don’t overdo it. If you have an amazing beaded dress, keep the accessories simple to let the dress shine. Conversely, a simpler dress is the perfect canvass for something a bit more daring and bold.

Decide what is important. If you opt for signature jewelry, long gloves, bold neckline, and fussy shoes, too much visual activity will distract from you. If your hair is elaborately styled, chose a pair of simple earrings. To complement a simpler style, go for either a bold veil or jewelry, but not both. Pins that match the style of your dress are a lovely way to keep your tresses in place. -Your entire look should flow in unison instead of competing for attention.

When it comes to shoes, you have many options, but keep comfort in mind. The gown will most likely cover them most of the time, and you’ll be doing a lot a dancing. Do you want to suffer in 5-inch stilettos?

You can’t go wrong by staying close to your non-wedding style. Are you a jeans and sneakers kind of girl? Go easy on the fuss and heavy on the simple. Are you the one who sets the fashion trend in your group? You’ll feel comfortable a bit closer to the edge.

Whatever your style, your wedding look should reflect who you are. It’s your day. You want to look your absolute best.
