Essential wedding accessories

Wedding accessories are important to complete your bridal look. Without wedding accessories, the wedding gown would look bare and incomplete. Below are some of the essential wedding accessories.

Wedding veils

Would a wedding be complete without a wedding veil? Of course, you’ve probably seen weddings where brides wear gowns without veils but it sure doesn’t look much like a wedding. A wedding veil, along with the ring and cord, is one wedding accessory that symbolizes the wedding itself. In picking out a wedding veil make sure that it will suit your wedding gown and the theme of your wedding. Traditional veils are very formal and usually measure around three and a half yards long. Veils nowadays come in various lengths. There is even a shoulder length flyaway type that is preferred by many modern brides. 

Shoes & stockings

Shoes and stockings are a crucial element to your overall look on your wedding day. All girls know how difficult it is to find a shoe that will complement the attire. What more if you are trying to look for a pair that would match your wedding gown. Try to look for shoes made of velvet, satin and silk as these materials provide a formal and delicate touch to any event. You can also choose shoes with embellishments like beads, sequins, pearls or crystals. Just make sure that the shoes you will buy are comfortable on your feet because you will wear them for probably the most important event of your life.

Jewellery

Aside from the wedding band and wedding ring, you should also take time to consider the other jewellery you will ear like necklace, earrings and bracelet. Jewellery should always compliment a dress and not be the star of the evening. So make sure that the jewellery you will wear would be noticeable enough to get attention but not too loud as to overshadow your wedding gown, also, the jewellery should match with your bridal makeup style, start looking as early as you can for bridal makeup and hairstyling services to lock in your makeup trial day and book in advance bridal makeup service on your wedding day. Consider wearing family heirlooms because they are proven to be an ideal wedding accessory. Of course, diamonds and pearls would also be very nice. 

Headpieces

Headpieces such as combs, headbands, back pieces and Juliet caps are generally used to hold the wedding veil in place. Often, headpieces are decorated with beads, pearls, crystals or flowers to make them look attractive. It seems like a small detail but a headpiece can spell the difference between a boring wedding attire and an exciting one. Actually, a beautiful headpiece can even replace a veil altogether.  Examples of headpieces that can stand alone are tiaras, crowns, half-crowns, wreaths and bun wraps.

Gloves

Gloves make great accessories especially if you are wearing a strapless or sleeveless gown. The general rule is that the shorter the sleeve the longer the glove should be. Gloves simply provide an air of sophistication to any outfit. 

Handbags

Of course, you shouldn’t be carrying a bag with you during the wedding ceremony or even during the reception. But still, it would be nice to have a small purse where all the things you will need, particularly make up for touch-ups, would be contained. It doesn’t have to be a big shoulder bag. Clutches will work just fine. 

As they say, God is in the details. And at a wedding, the little details provided by wedding accessories can make all the difference. That’s is why it is very important to give as much attention to the wedding accessories you will wear or carry on your wedding day as you would to your wedding gown.
