Admit it. Every bride wants to look her best on her wedding day, especially when there are so many eyes on her! Plus, the right to look like an absolute beauty solely belongs to the bride 😉 In fact, it is every bride’s dream to look so gorgeous, that she becomes the benchmark for future weddings. Little girls will look up to you like you are the most spectacular human at the wedding.
Plus, if anybody who attempts to usurp that throne of yours…well…they shouldn’t be at the wedding in the first place 😉
Of course, looking beautiful starts with choosing the right wedding gown but it doesn’t just end there! Here’s a guide to many wedding accessories to match your wedding gown and how you can look effortless radiant with the right wedding accessory.
#1 Wedding Gown Accessory: A Sparkly Tiara
Most brides have always dreamt of being a princess on her wedding day..or perhaps every day! Being treated like royalty is absolutely a great feeling. Therefore,wearing a sparkly tiara on your wedding day makes perfect sense. After all, you are entitled to be a princess on your wedding day 😉
A sparkly tiara would match well with a wedding gown in a ball gown cut. As the name suggests, the ball gown cut is inspired by how princesses (or ladies in the royalty line) wore tight corset to reflect a minuscule waist with a large skirt over a cumbersome petticoat. Of course, the whole picture is complete with a lovely tiara that is embellished with assorted diamonds.
Of course, you don’t need to purchase a tiara that is made of diamonds;) Now, there are many tiaras that are made of diamante and are equally beautiful. Plus, there will be no burns in your pocket.
Another great factor about tiaras is how it can ‘alter’ the shape of your face. For example, if you want to your face to appear longer, then you can opt for tiaras with a greater height in the centre portion. If you want to ‘soften’ your jawline, then opt for a smaller tiara that have swirls with scattered diamante.
Having said that, don’t go overboard with a large tiara! Not only does it snatch the attention away from the wedding gown, but it kind of makes you look a little like Miss Universe. You can be assured that your wedding pictures will be laughed by your children!
#2 Wedding Gown Accessory: A Floral Headband
Floral headbands have been gaining popularity over the past few years. It ranges from a simple band of white baby breaths, to large roses decorated on a branch-like band. Brides can opt to have a multitude of colours on her floral headband or have it in one colour! Although it looks casual, it definitely makes a bride look a lot more radiant and adds a rustic element to the overall appearance.
Brides who prefer floral headbands need consider the type of wedding gown they intend to wear. For example, a wedding gown that has assorted embellishements in many sizes and colours would not match well with any floral headband. As floral headbands already have several elements in them, from the size of flowers, to the structure and even the colours they come in, it will look out of place when it is matched with such wedding gowns. On the other hand, wedding gowns with finer details, such as soft lace textures and small beading work, would better complement with floral headbands.
The design of the floral headbands should match well with your facial features as well. For example, if you have a tiny face, then wearing a floral headband made of huge flowers would transform the top of your head into a nest of flowers…in a pretty bad way of course.
Another thing to consider is the location of your wedding as well! If your wedding is held at a grand venue, then perhaps a floral band may not pair well with the luxurious setting. Whereas, if your wedding is held outdoors by a garden or courtyard, then floral headbands would definitely look amazing as it complements the surroundings!
#3 Wedding Gown Accessory: A diamante floral clip.
If you are torn between a simple crystal headband or a floral headband, or you want a mixture of both and yet something that is not too over the top, then an elegant floral clip would be the best choice for you! Plus, not only does it secure your locks, but it transform your hairdo into a head turner.
Usually with the crystal floral clip, it is ideal for a bride to do a simple hair up do that doesn’t have too many braids or crimps. Otherwise, the overall effect might look a little too messy!
A crystal floral clip matches with most wedding gown designs, from the wedding gown with the princess look, to the sophisticated wedding gown in a fit and flare cut. The only thing to note is the size of the crystal flowers and whether it complements your face shape.
#4 Wedding Gown Accessory : A pair of crystal droplet earrings
Are you that kind of bride who doesn’t feel comfortable when there is something on her head and prefer to have not too much styling done to your hair? If you belong in this category, then you can opt for a pair of crystal droplet earrings! With the right design, it can add elegance to your overall look, transforming you into the epitome of class!
Having said that, the size of earrings is very dependent on your wedding gown. If your wedding gown has pretty simple details on the bodice, then a pair of extravagant earrings would be great! On other hand, if the bodice has a lot of embellishments, then a pair of simple diamond studs would be much more ideal.
Another aspect to consider is the neckline of your wedding gown. If you are wearing a wedding gown that bares your shoulders, then huge crystal earrings would be okay. On the other hand, if your wedding gown has a high neckline, then huge earrings would look too overwhelming! Your wedding guests wouldn’t know what to focus on. They might be wondering if they should they look at your exquisite wedding gown with excellent beadwork that outlines the neckline, or should they divert their attention to your large pair of crystal earrings.
#5 Wedding Gown Accessory: A neck and shoulder accessory piece
If your wedding is super chic and simple, then you can glamourise it with a neck and shoulder piece! Pieced together with jewels of different sizes, it will adds a touch of glamour and sophistication to your overall appearance. Plus, you can simply switch your look by changing your neck and shoulder piece to a simple crystal choker!
For such accessories, it is important that the bodice of the wedding gown does not have too much details going on. A simple satin or chiffon bodice with slight ruching on the waist would be perfect for an elaborate neck and shoulder accessory piece. The tricky bit is ensuring that it bring out the essence of the wedding gown without overshadowing the intricacy of the design. For example, if your wedding gown has a lot of lace work, embroidered floral patterns and glittering sequin, then a neck and shoulder accessory piece will be too much!
