Bridal Accessories You Will Need On Your Wedding Day

You have found the perfect wedding dress now its time to find those dreamy and perfect accessories to complete you unique aisle style.


Wedding Shoes

The best advice I can any bride when choosing her wedding shoes whether its a sky high ultra fashion shoe or completely flat, they must be comfy as your in them all day also be aware of your venue as it may impact your choice. Eg if your outdoors on sand or grass stiletto heels likely won’t be comfortable or appropriate—stick with wedges, sandals, or flats instead.


Do remember you must select you're wedding shoes and purchase them before your first dress fitting so that your dream dress can be hemmed perfectly.

Hair Accessories

Pinterest is a brides best friend when you're getting married and You have a lot of options when it comes to how you should wear your hair—up, down, or in between. My first bit of advice in to decide if you're going to wear any hair accessories, of course you have options such as the traditional wedding veil whether thats a super-long cathedral-length veil to a mid-length fingertip veil, or a short birdcage veil or blusher, there are many bridal veil options to choose from. Do remember, that you don’t have to wear a veil to look or feel bridal be as unique as you are.

Flowers make a natural hair accessory, whether you choose a single blossom or a boho-chic flower crown. Many brides choose to wear fresh flowers in your hair (ask your florist for help with this as they will be able to advise on styles, seasonal flowers) or if you’re worried about the blooms wilting, opt for fake flower accessories, there are many available on the market depending on what you want.

There are also lots of Uber glam hair accessories available such as hair vines, crystal and pearl headbands, handmade hairpins, sparkly tiaras, delicate clips and combs. If you're going vintage maybe consider a hairstyle or headpiece with feathers or a vintage inspired fascinator.



Bridal Jewellery

On you're wedding day you most likely will wear are your engagement ring and wedding band. In terms of additional jewellery its completely up to you on what you thinks best with your wedding dress to create your unique aisle style. For example a statement necklace can look great with a strapless gown but wouldn't necessarily work with a detailed illusion neckline.I always advice brides to avoid going overboard with bridal jewellery ideally choosing one or two carefully chosen pieces.


Undergarments

Once you have chosen your wedding dress speak to your bridal boutique about which undergarments would be best suited to the wedding dress you have purchased and whether support can be built into your chosen gown by a qualified seamstress. if you need to purchase shape wear a specific type of bra, or seamless underwear to ensure your gown looks picture-perfect and your undergarments stay invisible. It’s a must, to bring your chosen wedding undergarments to your first dress fitting to ensure your chosen dress is fitted correctly around the lingerie or shape wear, petticoats and hoops.



Garter

Bridal garters can be a fantastic way to incorporate a family heirloom into you're wedding day as something old, something blue or you may want to include a keepsake for your wedding day. You can also have some fun with your garter by having it decorated with a favorite sports team’s logo, your wedding colors, or a pattern you love. We love Pompadour Lingerie garters we have available in store at the moment.
