Every bride wants to look her best on her wedding day; that’s no secret! But it can be a challenge when it comes to deciding on what to wear – not only the dress but also the shoes, veil, hairstyle, accessories, make-up etc.
Well we have decided to help you with at least one of these areas: Wedding Accessories!
With so many beautiful glimmering options available to you, it can become overwhelming trying to settle on just one. As we all know…
We have put together a checklist to help you decide on the right wedding accessories. By all means enjoy perusing and basking in the glimmer of all of those beautiful jewels but when it comes down to decision time make sure you end up with the perfect piece!
Would you wear it again?
Although your wedding accessories are intended for your wedding day, it is worth considering whether or not you would wear them again in the future. Chances are you won’t be planning on wearing your tiara on a daily basis (if you are, you go girl!) but if you are looking at necklaces, earrings or bracelets, it might be nice to pick something that you can hold onto as a keepsake – then every time you’re wearing it it will remind you of that very special day and the commitment you may made to the one you love.
Which accessories do you want to wear?
You need to decide whether you want to go with the full works and emerge on your wedding day draped head to toe with glimmering jewels, or perhaps you want to focus on only a couple of accessories. If you decide to combine accessories be sure that they match; you may love your earrings and necklace equally but if they don’t co-ordinate then you will end up hating them on your wedding day.
What’s the colour scheme of the wedding?
If you have decided on a colour scheme take this into consideration when choosing your accessories. You don’t want anything to clash! Imagine you have planned a gorgeous red and white wedding and you choose to wear a pink tiara. At the end of the day it all comes down to what you think is beautiful so if you love the combination of pink and red then go for it but just be sure that you take everything into consideration in advance so you have no shocks or surprises on the day.
What is the neckline of your wedding dress?
It’s always a good idea to find your dream wedding dress before you start looking for your accessories. Depending on the style and cut of the dress different accessories will compliment your outfit. You don’t want to buy a statement necklace and then fall in love with a high necked, lace wedding dress covered in embellishments – the two will just not work together. However a delicate pair of pearl earrings, a dainty tiara and pearl bracelet might be the perfect match!
Will you be changing your outfit in the evening?
If you are going to change out of your wedding dress in the evening will your wedding jewellery match your evening outfit or do you need to take secondary jewellery with you, and if so what would compliment your outfit choice?
What material is your dress made of?
Once you have chosen your oh so special wedding dress, think about the material it is made from. You do not want your jewellery to catch on your wedding dress on the big day! You definitely don’t want to snag the dress but it’s also never a good look when your head appears to be attached to your shoulder because your drop earring has got caught on the lace of your dress, although it would make for a memorable moment!
What will your hairstyle be?
There are so many beautiful wedding hairstyles to choose from but once you know whether you are wearing your hair down, half up or all up then you can think about how this will affect your wedding accessory choices. Your hairstyle could impact your choice of veil, wedding hair accessories and earrings.
What about your friends and family?
The most important thing is that you feel like the most beautiful bride in the world on your wedding day so make sure you decide on the wedding accessories you love. However, if you are struggling to choose or are torn between a few choices then get a second opinion from those you love and trust the most.
Here a few wedding accessories to inspire you and make you think about what it is you are looking for…
