Accessorizing Your Wedding Dress!

Just finding the right wedding dress for yourself won’t make you look stunning. It is equally important to make your bridal dress adorable with the right accessories. Brooches, earrings, shoes, oversized flowers, bows and jewelries are just some of the accessories important to complete your bridal wear.

Styling your wedding dresses is not just a one- off option. There are numerous ways to accessorize your wedding gowns. Your overall styling can be traditional or classic, sleek and chick, retro or vintage, hippy or hipster cool and so on. Hence a variety of options are available to style your wedding dress. Some of the basic accessories that need consideration include corsages, fashion statement shoes, brooches, clutch bags, headbands, feather extensions, chandelier earrings and other forms of jewelries.

Corsages are a good substitute for a bouquet. You can decorate it with bright colors and attach it to your skirt, strap or even in your hair. Another accessory which is quite essential in enhancing your appearance is statement shoes. Allowing your shoes to peep from your bridal gown can be a cheeky and fun accessory. Although, it is necessary to make sure that you are comfortable in your shoes. A wobbly walk will all but severe your style statement.

Brooches are another trendy accessory, which can be a versatile add- on to your wedding dress. They can be attached to your shirt, dress- strap or can be pinned in your hair. They are most attractive when in beautiful and bright colors. Brooches can make an ideal way to accessorize the bridesmaid’s wedding dress. They can also be given as gifts for wedding.

Another make or break style statement is clutch bags. A wedding dress is incomplete, unless accompanied with a perfectly matching clutch. You can mix up other accessories with your clutch to make it all the more attractive. A clutch brightened with a brooch or a beautiful corsage can be the talk of the evening.

Headbands are a lovely way of enhancing your hairstyle. It can also be a cheaper substitute to a tiara or a veil. Another way of styling your hair is the use of feather extensions. Long feathers can be weaved in your hair to augment their beauty.

Besides these, jewelries are one of the most important ways to accessorize your bridal dresses. Choosing the right jewelry depends upon several factors like your personal taste, style of wedding gown and the wedding theme. A long pendant necklace, thick bangles, chandelier earrings or diamond earrings, pearls tied to a necklace, engagement ring are just some of the ways to add style quotient to your bridal wear with the help of jewelries.

Accessorizing your wedding dress tends to increase your budget slightly. So an alternative way out of this is to go for cheap wedding dresses. Cheap does not necessarily mean cheap in quality. A good quality cheap wedding dress accompanied with the ideal accessories can be a sure head turner. And as the saying goes, ‘you’re still not fully dressed unless you accessorize your wedding gown!’

10 Tips for Choosing Your Wedding Dress


1. Location: Your location can play a big part in what type of dress you choose. If you’re getting married on the beach in the summer you may want to stick to a light-weight dress without a train. If you’re going for a winter indoor wedding a ball gown dress or a modest dress might work best for the temperature.

2. Budget: Keep in mind the additional costs for accessories, undergarments and alterations. Alterations will most likely be an additional cost that most brides disregard. These costs usually account for 10-15% of the dress.

3. Start early: Make sure to keep track with a timeline or calendar. It can take anywhere from 4-8 months to get designer dresses. Make sure to have an additional month, at least, before the wedding for alterations.

4. Do some research: This is a definitely one of the most important of the 10 tips for choosing your wedding dress. There are a variety of different color whites, ivories, champagnes, and other wedding dress colors? Some body types work with certain dress styles. Take photos of dresses you find to stores to give the consultant a better idea of what you want or something similar.

5. Make a “game plan”: Decide where you want to go and when. Keep in mind that most bridal shops will be busiest on the weekends so going on a weekday may allow for more one-on-one time with your consultant and you’ll feel more like a princess being in the store with less people. Only go to 1 to 2 stores in one day or you will get overwhelmed. Allow about 1-1.5 hours at each store. Carry a notebook to keep track of dresses and styles you like and store info.

6. Bring backup: It’s always nice to have a second opinion but having too many opinions can be overwhelming. A suggested number of guests are 1-5. Keep in mind that it’s YOUR wedding so go with what you love and not what others love.

7. Find a dress for less: Most stores have discontinued (but still very gorgeous and trendy) dresses at lower costs. Don’t disregard these dresses! Some stores also have trunk shows where they may have sales the day of. You can also usually get coupons at bridal shows and other events.

8. Keep an open mind: Bridal consultants are there to help you. Some dresses look different on than just hanging. You never know what it looks like on you until you try it on.

9. Focus on fit not size: This is another very important tip for choosing your wedding dress. Most stores will only have sample sizes that are not your exact size. Bridal sizes also run smaller than normal clothing sizes. You always want to go with a size that fits now or larger. Alterations can always take in a dress but it can’t always be let out.

10. Get it in writing: Go over a contract or timeline with your consultant for deposit prices, when the dress will arrive, alterations estimates, shipping, and return policy. Also prior to order, make sure to double check the styles, size and color so there is no confusion.
