5 Ways to Complement Your Wedding Dress This Summer
It’s the most important day of your life, you’ve spent months maybe even years making sure every little detail is just perfect, you’ve got the dress and now it’s time to find the perfect way to complement your bridal look after all a beautiful bride needs the right accessories.
Many modern brides might balk at the thought of wearing a veil on their wedding day, but in 2016 things have changed and it’s not all about the traditional plain veil. This year bridal collections are flush with a wonderful variety of unique options to suit any style no matter how quirky. From retro inspired bird-cage and shoulder length veils to fabulously ornate styles with lace and floral appliques incorporated through the length, a uniquely decorated veil is the savvy brides’ go-to for a truly unique accessory that is the perfect complement to the dress.
Fit For a Queen
Playful accessories are having a moment and the bridal tiara is back in a big way and better than ever. Forget the dated tiaras of the 80’s, today it is all about unique, petite and quirky head wear. From festival inspired beaded bands and floral crowns to petite yet super luxe tiaras, if a traditional veil isn’t quite right for you fear not, there is an abundance of choice out there to ensure that the beauty of your dress is amplified by your choice of hair accessory whether it is a small and delicate hair slide or full on floral crown.
The traditional colour of choice for a wedding dress is of course white, and what better contrast than black. Yes, it’s a bit out there, but black bridal accessories were all over the catwalks for 2016. Keep it subtle with a black satin shoe, or incorporate it into your look with a black clutch bag for storing all your essentials. This would be a great addition especially if your bridesmaids are dressed in black.
These Shoes Were Made for Marrying
If, like many brides you’ve chosen a shorter length wedding dress, or high-low hemline your wedding day shoes are the perfect way to complement not only your wedding dress but to show off a little of your personality. Sophia Webster’s angel wing shoes are ideal for the romantics among us, or why not make like Carrie and wear your “something blue” on your feet, the possibilities are endless.
