With so many things to buy and plan for your special day, it’s easy to overlook a few important wedding accessories. However, these small touches will make your wedding look more distinctive and unforgettable.
Bridal Accessories Checklist
Bridal vines are bobby pin-secured elements that are neither a comb nor a headband. Perfect for a romantic or boho-chic look, the stunning wedding hair vines can be bent and shaped to accent any hair. Your hairdresser can weave them into braids or curls depending on their length.
Some bridal hair wines are slim and delicate and look lovely when wrapped around your hair numerous times. Others are considerably larger and wider and look excellent woven into a broad plait from the side of your head. The long, wide wedding hair vines also look fantastic placed over the back of the head.
These wedding hair accessories which are hard to beat in terms of their versatility are made in gold, silver, rose gold, or copper. Traditional brides can opt for freshwater pearl hair vines or Swarovski pearl hair vines. While, brides who enjoy a little dazzle will love the floral hair vines decorated with the most beautiful Italian clay blooms as well as the popular Swarovski crystal hair vine.
Combs is an excellent way to create a statement item in a tiny space. However, depending on the weight, you may need to choose lightweight goods. For larger hairpieces, flowy foliage and pampas grass work beautifully. Moreover, a bridal hair comb nestled on top of a chignon or the base of an updo is a lovely application.
Hairpins, like bobby pins, are slightly larger and have more room between the tines. On the other hand, hairpins are often embellished with small clusters of wispy beads or small flowers. Your hairdresser can use them singly or in bunches to accent or secure hair.
Crowns & Tiaras
Tiaras are a lovely addition to a variety of hairstyles. Some lay flat against the head like a headband, while others are more vertical. Many brides love the tiaras that are frequently adorned with clear crystals or other artificial gemstones and worn on the front of the head.
In addition, those who adore following the royals may choose to wear a crown on their wedding day. Despite their size, several of these headpieces are lightweight and made to be worn all day. Crowns, instead of tiaras, are a full circle of metal and gemstones designed to sit on top of the head.
Headbands are the undisputed champions of keeping hair out of your face in faultless elegance. With the addition of flowers, your wedding headband may deliver a lovely punch while accentuating your face features. Keeping the hair out of the way in such a fashionable way is a stunning wedding day style.
Your engagement ring and wedding band are the most visible bridal accessories you’ll wear on your special day. However, it is up to you to determine what other jewellery looks best with your dress. A necklace, for example, can look beautiful with a strapless neckline but not with a complex illusion neckline. Our best advice is to avoid going crazy with the jewellery-one, one or two carefully chosen items will most likely be enough to make you stand out.
For instance, well-chosen stud earrings are both trendy and stylish without becoming overdone. They’re so lovely and adaptable that you’ll be able to wear them long after your wedding. On the other hand, many brides go for a classic strand of pearls on their wedding day. Choose a striking necklace with freshwater pearls if you want something more modern and easygoing. However, don’t forget to add a little sparkle to your wrist with a cubic zirconia bracelet.
Another vital wedding accessory for the bride is her undergarments. After you’ve chosen your wedding gown, consult with your bridal salon about the undergarments they believe will look best with it—and whether any support can be fitted in. To guarantee your gown appears picture-perfect and your undergarments remain invisible, you may need to purchase shapewear, a specific type of bra, or seamless underwear. Bring your wedding undergarments to your initial dress fitting to ensure everything looks correct.
Whether or not you plan to have a garter toss as part of your reception, you may want to include a garter as one of your bridal accessories as a souvenir from your special day. It can be a lovely way to have a family heirloom as your “something old,” or to add a pop of colour to your ensemble as your “something blue.” You can even customise your garter with a favourite sports team’s emblem, your wedding colours, or your desired design.
The bride’s shoes are one of the essential accessories. Whether you prefer sky-high heels or comfortable flats, you’ll need to choose your wedding shoes before your initial dress fitting so that your gown can be correctly hemmed. Consider your comfort, as well as your wedding venue and style, while choosing your wedding shoes. For example, if you’ll be standing on grass or sand for most of your wedding day, stiletto heels are unlikely to be comfortable or appropriate, instead, opt for wedges, sandals, or flats. However, if you still want to soar sky-high on your wedding day, then a pair of sheer pumps with a scattering of sequins and crystals and a four-inch heel, are an excellent option for a feminine and glam bridal look!
Some brides use gloves as an accessory for a classic, vintage-inspired style. Bridal gloves are available in various lengths and designs, from wrist-length to over-the-elbow, and in several fabrics, including lace, satin, and crochet. Please keep in mind that if you are wearing gloves for your ceremony, you must remove them during the ring exchange, so, unique fingerless lace gloves are your safest bet!
Wrap or Jacket
You should include a shawl, jacket, wrap, or another type of outerwear on your bridal accessories list. The most obvious would be if you’re getting married during the colder months but still want to take photos outside. A fake fur shawl would do the trick and add a vintage-inspired touch to your ensemble.
For a more casual style, brides have worn everything from plaid flannel shirts to denim jackets to bright cotton cardigans over their gowns for fantastic photo chances. Perhaps if you’re wearing a strapless dress and want a little extra coverage for the ceremony, especially if you’re getting married in a house of worship, you may find a bolero or scarf to compliment your outfit.
Last but not least on your wedding accessories list is the perfect clutch. You probably won’t want to bring a purse to your wedding because you’ll be holding your bouquet for the majority of the day and may wind up misplacing it. However, if you need cosmetics for a touch-up, breath mints, or tissues during the reception, you can place them in a clutch and have your bridesmaid, close friend, or family member keep it safe for you.
