A wedding day is one of the most important days of a woman’s life, and finding the perfect dress is just one of many details that need to be carefully selected and coordinated. Accessories such as veils and wedding jewelry help complete the look while adding personal touches and completing the wedding ensemble. Here’s what you need to know about the various choices available as you navigate the world of bridal accessories.
Veils are an iconic symbol of a bride on her special day. There are a vast range of options to choose from and many bride’s are opting for unique and daring styles rather than just a classic long veil. Fingertip length, birdcage, and our favorite, the chapel length veil, are all popular styles that offer a timeless look. It’s important to take into consideration the silhouette of your dress when choosing a veil. If you prefer a more traditional style, look for a long veil with a simple edge. For a more modern look, consider a chapel or cathedral length veil with lace, crystals or pearls.
Picking the perfect jewelry can be daunting, but it doesn’t need to be. First, decide on the type of jewelry you prefer. If you’re drawn to vintage or antique pieces, you’ll want to find something unique for your special day. But if classic and timeless are more of your style, look for pearls and diamonds that sparkle and shine. Whether you stick with traditional metals and stones or go bold with something flashy, make sure to pair your wedding day jewelry with the shape of your dress and your hairstyle. As an added touch, consider wearing a family heirloom such as a vintage broach or necklace.
Don’t forget the details! Even though the veil and jewelry are essential for completing your look, having a few small accessories helps tie everything together. Consider adding a monogrammed clutch, or adding a touch of bling with a belt or brooch. And don’t forget the flowers! A bouquet of fresh flowers is the classic way to complete your wedding day look. Consider a traditional white and cream arrangement, or choose an eye-catching mix of colos.
With the right combination of veils, jewelry, and accessories, you’ll be ready to walk down the aisle in style. Ultimately, your bridal accessories should reflect your personal style and taste, and should be a reflection of who you are. So get creative and enjoy the process of finding the perfect pieces for your special day!
