Accessorizing on your Big Day

Accessorizing on your Big Day

After finding the wedding dress that suits your personal style and vision, the next step is finding accessories to complete your look. Accessories are the perfect way to compliment your dress and elevate your entire wedding look with personal and unique details. Whether you're wearing heirloom jewelry or purchasing your own pieces, accessorizing is a fun and sentimental way for you to personalize your wedding look. If you're thinking through your accessory choices, here are a few types of accessories to consider while you're shopping. 



We believe the best place to start when choosing accessories is with your veil! A veil can significantly impact your dress, and you may want to pick your other accessories after selecting this piece. Veils come in a variety of different lengths, widths, embellishments, and styles. A traditional bride with a clean gown may want to look for a cathedral length veil with a French lace border, while the modern bride who chose an embellished gown may find a waltz length veil with a raw cut edge to be precisely what she needs. We also have several designers who have created veils to correspond with gowns that have unique and hard to match details and laces!


Finding the right jewelry for your dress helps add another layer of personality to your bridal gown. We love the way these floral, pearl drop earrings have a modern yet straightforward glow, but we also recognize simple may not always be the way to go—if you're someone who loves a little bit of extra glamour, jewelry is the perfect way to add as much sparkle as you want. A statement earring with a timeless dress can make a gorgeously striking look. When accessorizing, be sure to stay true to your own style so that you feel the most beautiful on your wedding day.



After choosing your veil, you may want to consider adding a comb or hairpins to complete the look. A hairpiece can be worn for your entire wedding day or added to your hair after you take off your veil to maintain a level of romance and glamour. A comb like this Sara Gabriel design can add the perfect touch of elegant sparkle to your dress. Depending on the style of jewelry you choose, combs can add ethereal elegance, modern glamour, or romantic sparkle that can complement your style beautifully.



Another way to elevate your wedding look is by adding a belt to your dress. If you're a bride who loves things that sparkle and shocked yourself by choosing a dress with none, a belt could add that glittering touch without overpowering your dress. We love these simple belts from Hushed Commotion and their elegant and modern design. A belt can also highlight your waist, flattering your figure and highlighting your dress's silhouette.
