Wedding accessories are an important part of the overall look for any bride on her wedding day. Whether it’s a vintage necklace, a tiara, floral head dress, bracelet, bag or earrings, they must all combine to create a look that speaks of elegance and style. Your accessories are as individual as you are and will help to unify the theme of your wedding as well as express your personality.
We are all familiar with the ‘Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue’ superstition, but it can be a great place to start planning this most essential of areas. Does your mother or mother-in-law have something that they would be prepared to loan you? What about the garter with a blue ribbon entwined through it? Or you might even decide to have a small dolly bag that holds your touch up makeup on the day. Whatever you do though, do remember to buy your dress first before you start accessorising!
Your bridesmaids are also an important part of your accessory strategy. You may want them to have matching shoes, headbands or even wraps. Planning these in advance will help to reduce stress the closer you get to your big day. Below is just a small selection of the choices available.
