Okay, so you’ve found your dream dress: but how are you planning to style it on your wedding day? There are endless options of accessories to choose from, so finding pieces that add your unique personal style to your look without detracting from the beauty of your wedding dress is important! If you’re unsure where to start, we’re breaking down a few of our favorite ways (and some of the most popular) to style a wedding dress.
Nothing says “here comes the bride” like a veil—the accessory creates that quintessential bridal look everyone associates with weddings. Veils range in length and style, meaning that you can go in tons of different directions with the look of your veil. Whether you’re going for a lace-edged cathedral length veil or a birdcage, veils also give your photographer tons of photo opportunities. Besides—when else can you wear a veil?
Not sure a veil is for you? That doesn’t mean you have to skip on hair accessories entirely! A hair comb is a great way to add a hint of sparkle to your look. These are perfect for adding a touch of vintage flair to your look or topping it off with a bit of princess-like elegance. You could even use both a veil and a hair comb for a completely unique look, great for brides who love unexpected details.
Your ring isn’t the only piece of jewelry you’ll wear on your wedding day! Finding a great pair of earrings or a necklace can highlight your dress perfectly. If you’re wearing a simple style or an off-the-shoulder look like this bride, a statement necklace might be the perfect thing you’re looking for. On the other hand, if your neckline is heavily embellished you may want to choose a more understated pair of drop earrings to balance the dress.
While they may only be seen in passing, shoes are a great way to add your own style to your bridal look. If you love a bit of glitz, you could choose an embellished pair like these, or if you’re a more laid-back bride you could choose a simple pair of flats—we’ve even seen brides choose a fun pair of sneakers for their wedding day! Shoes are a great way to really add your own style to your wedding day look.
