Which Bridal Accessories Are Right for Me?

Ah, there’s nothing like being a bride, amiright? You finally have your hairstyle all picked out, you’ve procured those impossible-to-find jewel-encrusted stilettos and nestled them safely on your closet floor, and you’ve squared away the last bit of bridesmaid wardrobe issues.

…yet you still feel as if you’re missing something.

If you haven’t yet selected bridal accessories for your ensemble, then that hunch is most definitely correct. Bridal jewelry and other key accessories add the perfect finishing touches to polish off your look on the big day.

But how do you choose the right bridal accessories for your look? If you pick the wrong style or color, you risk detracting from your dress in a major way. At worst, you may even appear gaudy or overdressed. Fortunately, if you follow a few simple rules of thumb, you’ll find the perfect set of wedding accessories that will enhance your look and transform you into a bride to remember.

Analyze Your Arms

Will you be stepping out in a stunningly understated strapless number when you wed? If you are, according to Wedding Wire, don’t be afraid to glam that gown up with a pair of 50s-inspired gloves:

“While gloves are most frequently seen with traditional gowns, we love playing up the retro, Marilyn Monroe factor by pairing them with a glam, sexy style.”

If you’re opting for the white-hot romantic bohemian look instead, then stick to simple accessories. Think teensy pearl bracelets, strategically placed live flowers, and subtle nails painted in a soft rose or nude shade. On the other hand, brides in traditional, full-skirted ball gowns may want to choose embellishments as fancy as the dress itself.

Trash the Tiara

These days, when it comes to headpieces, brides are branching out from the tiara. New styles are making a major splash all over the bridal mag circuit – think ribbons, intricately adorned combs, and a range of other girly accents perfect for wedding-day hair. Some brides going for the trendy “boho-ethereal garden fairy” look even sport a simple floral wreath atop a wispy lace frock.

Mind Your Metals

Wondering which type of metal to choose for your wedding jewelry? The short answer: it depends on the shade of white you’ll be rocking during your nuptials. Luckily, The Knot recently published a great mini-guide that you can follow to choose just the right metal for your matrimonial getup:

Weigh the Weather

A sunny spring wedding means that you don’t need to concern yourself with selecting heavy outerwear. However, if the day’s expected to be cooler (or if you plan to have an evening reception), you may want to consider choosing a light shrug or shawl that matches your gown.

If you’re planning a winter wedding, you should definitely spend time selecting the right jacket or coat for your ensemble. Remember, if you’ll be wearing it for an extended period during your big day, you may want to opt for a less ornate dress to avoid any pieces potentially clashing.

Keeping these factors in mind will help guide you to the perfect assortment of bridal accessories for your wedding-day look. You’ll shine head to toe when you round out your style with the right finishing touches, and that magazine-worthy bride smiling back at you in your future wedding pictures will make the extra effort entirely worthwhile.
