If you have found your soulmate and are going to tie the knot shortly then you have to pull up your socks and get ready for a lot of shopping. While everyone plans to get a perfect wedding dress they often forget about the little details like the bridal accessories. From jewellery to shoes there are a lot of things that you will have to take care of. Here we have a list of accessories that you must not miss!
Wedding shoes are an important accessory for both the bride and groom. If you want comfortable flats or high heels you should select the shoes before fitting your dress accordingly. Whenever you select your shoes keep three things in mind- style, venue and comfort. For instance, if the wedding venue is outdoors on sand or grass then stiletto heels wouldn’t be a good choice.
There are a lot of options when it comes to hair accessories. You have to decide if you want to go for a traditional veil or something modern and then choose the accessories accordingly. You can get a mid-length veil or a super long one, again the choice is yours. You can even use flowers as your hair accessory. Other options include clips, tiaras, combs, hairpins, bun wraps, barrettes or even feathers!
Apart from wedding bands or wedding rings, there are a ton of jewellery options to choose from. Make sure you don’t over accessorise yourself and that the jewellery you choose goes with your dress. At times, a simple Sunflower Necklace is enough to make a statement. For instance, a necklace will go well with the strapless gown but it won’t go with a gown with a detailed neckline. Thus, be very careful when selecting the wedding jewellery for yourself.
Wrap or jacket
There are many reasons why you must have a wrap, jacket or a shawl with yourself. If you are marrying in colder months then it is an absolute necessity. A fur or faux stole or wrap would do the job and it will give you a vintage touch to your look. But, if you want a casual look you can opt for flannel shirts, cotton cardigans or denim jackets for photos. You can even get a matching shawl if your wedding gown is strapless.
If vintage look inspires you then getting gloves would be a great choice. Bridal gloves come in a variety of options from different lengths to different styles. From over the elbow to wrist length and in fabrics varying from satin, crochet and lace there are many options to choose from. However, there is one thing that you should remember that you will have to remove the gloves during the ring exchange ceremony.
If your gown is plain and it doesn’t have any embroidery or work and you want to jazz up the look then sash is the accessory you should go for. Sashes will also elevate the look by flattering your figure moreover, you can infuse your personal touch by adding a sash. Sashes also come in many fabrics from leaves, flowers to crystal-adorned sashes.
The last thing on our list is a purse. Now it is obvious that you will not carry a purse while walking down the aisle. However, there are certain things that you must have with yourself such as breath mints, makeup for touch up or tissues. These things can be easily kept in a purse since you cannot carry the purse yourself. You can ask your bridesmaid to keep it safe for you!
Other accessories that you might want to carry with yourself include a button-down shirt, bridal robe, getting ready attire and maybe even a comfortable pair of shoes to slip into after the ceremony. You can even have a garment bag that might come in handy for your dress or shoes. An overnight bag is also an important thing that you should keep with yourself. It should include your lingerie and nightgown or pyjamas.
These were all the things that the bride should not miss on her special day. However, when it comes to the groom, they should make sure that they have everything from belts, ties, belts and shoes.
