5 Tips for Accessorizing Your Wedding Dress

Once you've found the perfect wedding dress at our South Florida bridal salon, it's time to think about accessories! While accessories can add to your look, you want to make sure not to go overboard. Today's blog from Bridal Couture of the Palm Beaches offers a few accessorizing tips to help you complete that gorgeous wedding look you're going for:

1. Keep It Simple.

You've heard the phrase more is less. Well, that's definitely true when it comes to choosing wedding accessories. You don't need a veil and a headpiece, earrings, bracelets and a necklace, and a sash. Pick and choose what would look best with the style of dress you've chosen. For example, if your gown has an ornate neckline, opt out of the necklace as it will draw attention away from that part of the dress. In addition, if you have an up-do put on a nice pair of earrings, but with your hair down they may get covered up and a bracelet may be a better option. Whatever combination you choose, just remember to keep it simple.

2. Match Your Jewelry to the Dress.

Did you know that different types of metals pair nicely with different colors of dresses? If your dress is the traditional bright white color, gold jewelry can actually clash. In this case, you'll want to stick with silver metals or pearls when choosing your jewelry. If the color of your dress is more ivory, then some golf color jewelry will actually help bring out some of those creamy undertones. If your wedding gown has embellishments already on it, then it's extremely important you choose jewelry of the same color and style so it doesn't class and make the ensemble look too busy.

3. Put Careful Consideration into a Veil.

Traditionally, brides always wore a long veil to hide their face from the groom until that last moment before they kiss. Today, many brides are opting for different styles of veils or sometimes even no veil at all. When choosing a veil, there are a lot of things to consider. First, you want to make sure the color of the veil matches the color of your dress. Second, you need to decide on the style of the veil. Do you want a long veil or a short veil? Do you want to hide your face or just accentuate it? Keep in mind what the back of your dress looks like. If you want to show off ornate details on the back of the dress, you'll want to choose a shorter style. Lastly, consider your body type as different veils can elongate or shorten your look. If you opt for no veil at all, consider a nice hair piece instead.

4. Choose Comfortable Shoes.

While some people may say diamonds are a girls best friend, we're leaning more towards the shoes! Completing your look with a gorgeous pair of heels is great, but you want to make sure you'll be comfortable standing in them for hours. When shopping for the perfect shoes to match your dress, consider the height of the heel, the type of straps and material and the type of support they provide. The cutest pair of shoes will do no one any good if you're cringing in pain after just one hour. Once you purchase the shoes, be sure to break them in some before the big day! Bonus Tip: Another option for more comfort is to bring a pair of flats to change into at the reception.

5. Stick to Your Favorites.

While it is your wedding day and you want to look fabulous, don't stray too far away from your normal look. If you never wear bracelets, don't wear them just because it's your wedding day. Stick to what you know and what you're comfortable with. You don't want to be re-adjusting your jewelry all day because you're not used to wearing it and it's bothering you. The goal is to look like the best, most beautiful version of you, not someone else!
