You’ve found your dream gown, but are thinking of changing up your look as you go from ceremony to reception. Many brides want to wear a traditional and classic wedding gown as they say “I do”—but then hope to transform into a more festive look for the party to celebrate after. An easy way to do this is with bridal accessories that will change your look and allow your gown to perform double-duty on your wedding day. Here are just a few details that will have you looking gorgeous from start to finish:


1. A veil adds drama
Put on a veil and you instantly transform into a bride. With so many unique bridal veils, it’s easy to choose one that’s perfect for you. Veil color is the first and most important feature—it has to match the exact color of your dress, whether it’s white, off-white, champagne, blush, cream, etc. Next, veil length and style should complement your gown’s look and details. Popular options include:

  • cathedral veil is a long veil that’s perfect for a formal wedding.
  • chapel veil is a traditional veil that falls to the floor and extends a few centimeters.
  • waltz or ballet veil falls between the knees and ankles.
  • short veil falls as low as the shoulders or as long as the elbows.
  • blusher or double tier veil can be used to cover the face, or simply be worn back to create another layer

Experiment with different lengths and styles to find one that matches your personality, gown, and how you want to wear your hair on your wedding day. A carefully selected veil can add drama without being over-the-top and is one of our favorite wedding dress accessories. We carry a wide variety of bridal veils and offer maximum flexibility for veil customizations and rush orders.


2. Jewelry accentuates themes
Diving into the wedding jewelry world can be overwhelming. With so many colors, metals, and styles, it’s easy to get confused. The good news is that picking out perfect jewelry really isn’t that hard if you have good help. Identifying your wedding theme immediately narrows down your jewelry choices. The four most popular wedding themes are:

  • Classic
  • Modern
  • Romantic
  • Eclectic

Carefully selected jewelry accentuates the theme while you still remain the center of attention. Your guests will marvel at your jewelry while unconsciously being drawn into the theme and mood of your wedding—a powerful bridal-accessories effect that you can take advantage of. We have a large collection of luxury earrings, bracelets, hair combs and necklaces to help create your perfect look.


3. Lace toppers allow you to have two looks
Lace toppers are one of the most versatile wedding accessories for a bride. Pop one on and your look will be transformed instantaneously. Your lace topper can provide extra coverage for your ceremony or will jazz up your dress for the reception. There are many options to choose from, so finding a lace topper that meets all of your needs is super easy if you have good help. Seek the advice of a wedding dress accessories expert, and they’ll offer great choices for your wedding style.
