3 Finishing Touches For Your Wedding Dress
As if choosing a gorgeous gown wasn’t hard enough, there is another step in the wedding dress saga that is well worth you giving some thought to: your accessories. We’re talking about the little finishing touches that take your gorgeous wedding dress and make it utterly perfect. We’re talking about the little tidbits that make you look that much more stunning the more you look.
Of course, your gown will always be the star of the show, but every star needs a band and backing singers, and that is exactly what accessories are. They are the little things that add a pinch of personality to your look. The problem is, there is so much out there to choose from you’re bound to go dizzy without a little bit of guidance.
So, without further ado, here are the most elegant ways to dress up your wedding dress:
Matching Metals Are A Must
You may not have realised this, but not every metal goes with every gown. It all depends on the color you have chosen. So let’s run through them quickly. For those wearing pure white, you need to be pairing your dress with platinum, silver or pearls. If you have gone for an ivory gown, then gold will highlight it the best. For those gown with a bit of sparkle and shine, try yellow or rose gold. And, for those that have chosen an embellished dress, follow this path when it comes to your other accessories; your bracelets and necklaces and earrings et al.
The Magic Of Minimalism
The phrase, “Less is more,” has never been more appropriate than on your wedding day. You don’t have to say yes to a necklace, a tiara, a sash, earrings and bracelets, nor should you. This is the day your incredible fiance wants to see you make a wedding dress look beautiful. So before you start stocking up on everything, look at your dress and take note of what makes it stand out. For example, if the neckline is ornate, then a pair of simple drop-down earrings instead of a necklace could be the perfect combination. If your dress embraces a simpler style, then you can let your jewellery be a bolder; a fascinator or the kind of necklace that makes a statement.
No Need For An Unveiling
Veils are falling a little out of fashion, but that doesn’t mean you can’t top off your look with something else. Of course, before you do anything, you need to know what hairstyle you will be rocking; after all, some updos will work better than others. Putting this to one side for a second, why not speak to your florist about making a flower crown that matches your bouquet, something that the Marigold Flower Co. do, and something that goes perfect with looser locks. If you are the kind of girl that prefers to wear diamonds around her neck than flowers in her hair, then why not go all out and try a fascinator or even a tiara. It’s your wedding.
