6 Things To Consider When Finalising Bridal Accessories

Preparing for your wedding day can be overwhelming, but it can also be fun. And one of the highlights of the wedding preparation is finalising your bridal look. Have you already picked a dress? If yes, that’s a great start. But if you still haven’t, you should take some time and pick as soon as possible.

Once you find THE DRESS, the next thing you need to do is finalise your accessories. It may seem like an easy task, but it’s not. Think of the accessories as the cheery on top of your outfit. Without them, you won’t be able to create the perfect look because there’s something missing.

The basic bridal accessories are the veil, shoes, necklace, earrings, bracelet, and hairpiece. However, if you still haven’t finalised these accessories, and need some help to accomplish this, here are the things you should consider when choosing bridal accessories!

1. The wedding theme

What’s the theme of your wedding? Where’s the venue? Are you planning for a beach, garden, or church wedding? Since you’re down to the last half of the wedding preparations, you might already have figured these things out.

So even though you’re looking for accessories, you should still consider your wedding theme. Of course, you should also stand out from the crowd, but it’s weird if you have a garden wedding, yet you’re wearing accessories that fit for a formal wedding.

For instance, let’s say you have a garden wedding. Since gardens are usually filled with flowers, you may opt for pink diamond jewelry. It can complete your dainty look and don’t mind wearing something that has sparkles.

2. Your bridal dress

As mentioned, your bridal dress should be one of the main things to consider when accessorising. When you already have the dress, it’s easier to add more details. For instance, if your dress has a simple neckline, you can either pick a simple pink diamond necklace or go big and try a statement piece.

Meanwhile, aside from the cut and style of the dress, the colour should also be considered when pairing it with accessories. As you may know, wedding gowns are not just white. It can be whatever solar you like. But the common colours are white, ivory, champagne, and blush.

If you have a blush wedding dress, a pink diamond accent would be great. But of course, yous should also pick the right shade of your pink diamond jewelry.


3. The flowers

It depends on the order in your list, but if you already picked the flowers for your bouquet you should try to find the right accessories to wear. Technically, the bouquet is also an accessory, but since it’s planned with the other flowers, you should consider it afterward.

Are you going with tulips, peonies, or roses? If your bouquet is one of these, you should wear jewelry with sparkles like pink diamonds. However, it can also be white, like pearls or colourless diamonds.

4. Your personal style

It’s your wedding day, so you should be dressed the way you are. If you like the dainty style, you can opt for a tiara, and even add lace and flowers to your gown. It may not be the way you dress every day, but it’s the wedding version of your overall look.

For instance, if you don’t usually wear heels, don’t force yourself to wear one. Instead, pick the best options for your sneakers or flats. Nowadays, there are many flats that suit your wedding dress. And if your shoes are hidden under the dress, it’s easier to come up with the most comfortable pair.


5. Hair and make-up

Have you decided on the hair and make-up yet? If yes, you can easier imagine the right accessories that suit your look. Traditionally, the bride’s make-up is simple and elegant. On the other hand, the hair can be an updo, curly, or tied in a ponytail.

You can stick with the natural look for hair and make-up so that you won’t regret it after a couple of years. Imagine choosing heavy make-up for your wedding. After a few years, you won’t be able to hang your wedding picture because you regret that decision the most.

6. The small details

The little things can make or break your outfit. For instance, if you’re planning to have the wedding theme colour as a pop-up for your accessories, then you should wear the exact colour. Otherwise, it’s just a waste.

In addition, if you’re planning to wear your engagement ring, you can also wear accessories that are almost similar to it. For instance, if your engagement ring is made of a pink diamond set on gold, you should avoid wearing accessories that aren’t metal.

As a bride, your overall look should be well-coordinated. If not, you’ll end up regretting you didn’t spend enough time to pick the best pieces for yourself. So if you have other tips, don’t hesitate to share them by leaving a comment below!
