A One of a Kind Bride’s Guide to Wedding Accessories

If you’re a future bride, you’ve probably put thought into your dress and hair, but you shouldn’t forget accessories. The details make or break the entire look, and if you want to choose the best accessories for your dress, you should give it plenty of thought well before the big day arrives. Here’s a list of some of the best types of accessories that will take your look to the next level on your wedding day.

The Veil

Veils are an accessory that some brides choose to wear and others pass on. Some brides wear their mother’s veil to feel a sense of tradition and connection to family, yet many brides prefer to buy one. If you’re going to buy your own, you have many options. Although veils are less popular than they were in the past, there are still plenty of styles. For instance, a lace veil that’s worn at the crown of the head and covers the hair is a very traditional and modest style.


Choosing the jewelry that complements your dress is essential. If you have a dress with a high neckline and many embellishments, then wearing a necklace might not be the best option because, in this scenario, jewelry can detract from a stunning neckline. Necklaces often complement sweetheart, plunging, and scoop necklines. Bracelets and earrings are other common options, and you can even get custom jewelry to coordinate with the styling of your dress. When you’re choosing your jewelry, you should also consider your wedding colors and the overall theme of your wedding. For instance, if you’re having a winter wedding, you could have an icicle theme and use diamonds as your main stone to further tie in the look of ice.

Hair Pieces

Some women opt out of the veil so that they can better show off a beautiful hair accessory. Tiaras are still a popular choice, but there are plenty of other options, too. A flower-adorned headband is pretty for a spring or summer wedding. You can also add crystal-studded pins and hair combs to an up-do.

Fingerless Gloves

Fingerless gloves let you add a special touch while also leaving the wedding band on display. Although they aren’t always incorporated into bridal outfits, gloves can be a classy addition that adds a particularly special touch to wedding photos. Bridal gloves usually leave the fingers bare by incorporating a single piece of fabric that loops around the middle finger.

When you’re the bride, you want your day to be special. As with many things in life, the details will take your overall look to the next level. Make sure that you try everything on together before your wedding day so that you can see which pieces complement each other and which ones detract from the overall aesthetic.
