Different ways to outfit yourself with flowers on your wedding day

Flowers are colorful, fresh and energetic. It is no wonder they are a big source of inspiration for weddings, inspiring everything from wedding dresses to cakes and décor. It is a fact that flowers are an inevitable part of the wedding scenery. These little blessings of nature can not only spruce up the ambiance by being in the décor, they also enhance the bride’s wedding day look in many ways.

The best thing about flowers is that they are endearing, whether real or not. Floral motifs have always been a huge hit in wedding fashion, and have been represented in different styles and manners in wedding dresses and more.

Here are some ideas for prospective brides to add flowers to their wedding. So, explore the options and make your pick.

The romantic flower crown

Flower crowns are versatile. Like this article on Something Turquoise tells us, flower crowns are a universal accessory that looks great on any hair color and any hair style. The eternal favorite of the Boho bride, the flower crown adds a rustic, authentic touch to any hairdo. It is a beautiful alternative to traditional head pieces like tiaras and hair clips.

Flower crowns can be adapted to fit any hairstyle—you can either have a full-crown or a half-crown and either wear it around your head or to one side. While you can ask your florist to create a fantastic flower crown using flowers that are in your décor or those that match your wedding palette, you can even attempt a DIY flower crown if you are crafty. This accessory is perfect for an outdoor wedding like one held in a garden. Another wedding where it would be just right is at a nautical theme wedding or a beach wedding. In this case, you can even add little elements of the ocean, like starfish models and shells with the flowers, so it blends with the theme. Don’t forget that you will need bobby pins to hold your crown in place, irrespective of whether it is elaborate or not.

Woven flowers in your hairdo

If a flower crown is too bold or big for your taste, an equally interesting alternative is to weave flowers into your hairdo. There are many ways in which you can do this. Either use a single fresh bloom of noticeable size, or add a scattering of smaller blossoms in your hairdo. Depending on your hairstyle, you can even mix flowers up in a small chain, to create the effect you desire. If your hairstyle has braids in it, adding tiny flowers like daisies or buds into the different recesses would make it very pretty and almost ethereal. However, remember that when you choose flowers for your hair, they should stand up for the entire day. Wilted and weathered flowers will completely ruin your look. So, either take them out before that stage or choose flowers that will not wilt quickly. Baby breath and lavender are good choices that stay fresh for long. For some interesting tips and inspiration on how to place flowers in your hair on your wedding day, or on any other day, head over to this very entertaining article on Xovain.

A flower necklace

Summer wedding, Boho bride and budget-friendly options; all these terms point to an unusual but intriguing idea: a flower necklace. We think this would be pretty interesting, especially if you pair it with a strapless or off-the-shoulder wedding dress neckline. Long-lasting flowers are an absolute requirement for this look, or you can choose a longer flower garland that you can take off after a while. By the way, did you know that flower garlands are the Indian counterparts of wedding rings? Brides and grooms in that part of the world exchange elaborate flower garlands made with scented flowers as part of the wedding ritual. Apart from that their décor includes elaborate floral arrangements, and even the wedding guests commonly wear floral garlands in their hair. To learn more about their other interesting traditional wedding rituals, check out this article Now, coming back to our topic on flower necklaces, this idea would be wonderful for a bride who wants a natural but unusual floral accessory. Hyacinths, zinnias and marigolds are good choices that are hardy, but pleasing to the eye. If you do not want a fully floral necklace, you could instead explore the possibility of just hanging the flowers down like a pendant from a necklace strand or attaching it to a complementing strand of stones or gems like corals or rice pearls.

Flower bracelets

If the necklace is a little overwhelming for your taste, flower bracelets or wrist corsages are the next best choice. Flower bracelets are a popular bridesmaid accessory, especially when the bride decides to eliminate bridesmaids bouquets for any reason. However, the same can be made into a bridal accessory, especially for a summer wedding in the outdoors. With this, you needn’t worry about going over-the-top, as it will simply add a stunning and exotic touch to your outfit. Once again, discuss with your florist to find out what flowers would be best. You will have to consider the size of your wrist to choose flowers that will look good and not too big. Either have a single big bloom with a mix of tiny flowers around it, or create a mix ‘n’ match bracelet with a number of similar sized flowers.

This article on the Bride’s cafe is an interesting DIY approach to creating your own flower bracelet with one focal flower and other tiny blooms adding interesting texture to the design. However, remember that flower corsages have to be created as close to when they will be worn, as is possible. Only then will they stay fresh. So, unless you have ample time for all this on the day before your wedding or on the wedding day itself, it may be a good idea to delegate this responsibility to someone else.

Floral bridal waistband

If you are pretty proud of your slender waist and wish to draw attention to it, a floral bridal waistband may be the easiest way to do this. It is possible to adorn the waistband of a dress that gathers at the waist, with blooms of any size. You can have this custom-made or find a ready made accessory here on Etsy. Buying one with fresh flowers online may be out of question for obvious reasons. Nonetheless, you can achieve the desired effect with beautifully handcrafted faux flowers when you find a talented designer to custom create it for you. Now, if you want nothing other the real deal, discuss your options with your florist. Just like with a floral necklace, she may be able to design a floral waistband with flowers that are sturdy and do not buckle under strain. Match the flowers to your wedding palette, and stick with blooms that look good on your frame. You cannot go wrong with your choice. For a sophisticated effect, it is best to add just a few blooms in a carefully fashioned design towards one side of your waist. For an ethereal, dreamy look, a waistband covered in small, soft flowers would be best.

Bridal bouquet

This is a traditional accessory that Western brides consider a must-have on their wedding day. There are endless options when designing the bouquet, and it is one accessory that can be entirely unique. Bridal bouquets can be made in different sizes, shapes and colors and can be as dramatic or toned down as one desires. Flowers have the power to transform your look, allowing you to look traditional or modern depending on the style of the bouquet. The factors to consider when choosing a bouquet design include how it will suit your built, how it integrates with your wedding theme and the impact the shape has on your outfit. If your bridesmaids will be bearing bouquets too, you should plan the look of your bouquet, so that it has a common factor with their bouquet designs.

Different types of bouquets are suitable for different types of weddings, and your florist can advise you on the best options for your type of wedding and your body type. Flowers like orchids and lilies look modern and clean, and have the sophistication needed for a contemporary look. Traditional styles include round bouquets, nosegays, posies and cascades. Hand-tied bouquets are casual, romantic and rustic, while ones like the composite are luxurious and very unique. The colors in the bouquet can also be monochromatic, or mixed and matched to form combinations that work for your wedding theme.

Flower anklet

If you will be walking barefoot as at a beach wedding, a floral anklet is a great accessory to dress up your dainty feet. You can also do this if your wedding dress isn’t full-length and exposes your anklets and feet. If your nuptials are at a beach, rocking heels are out of the question, and you may not have too many options with your footwear choices. In such a scenario, you don’t have to compromise on looking great from every angle. In fact, you can even draw special attention to your feet with a beautiful flower anklet. However, remember that a short wedding dress is the only way you can show off such an accessory, as it would make no difference if you were to wear it under a traditional ball gown, and it wouldn’t even be seen. This article on the Flyaway Bride is devoted to floral anklets, and they are simply stunning. For inspiration on planning your anklet design, do visit it and take notes.

Flower cloak

Here is a unique and bold idea that we spotted on the Martha Stewart wedding website. A trailing flower shawl isn’t for the fainthearted, but it is a show-stopper with a luxuriant green garland that is six feet long. It also has snow berries and colored leaves to add more drama and texture. If you are up for this, you can even have your florist create this with a range of flowers and even fruit. However, stay away from allergy-causing flowers with pollen and any berries that may stain your dress if they get squished when you wear the cloak. For pictures and other details about this unique accessory, visit Martha Stewart.

3-D florals on wedding dress

Now, if you cannot have the real thing, floral wedding dresses are the next best thing. You can max up on floral extravaganza with a lavish scattering of floral elements in your wedding dress. 3-D floral designs have been very popular for a long time, and their exquisite beauty is because of how they are highlighted in the wedding dress.

In wedding dresses that feature 3-D florals, a generous scattering of floral appliques are usually featured in lace or net. These are placed over a base of satin or chiffon, so the contrast in textures creates a pronounced effect for the floral design. This may be done anywhere in the dress, and the best effects are when the dress has an illusion sheer layer with this effect. Pretty floral motifs may dress up the neckline, sleeves, bodice or skirt, and even spill into the train for maximum impact. Browse through our wedding dress gallery at Best for Bride, and you will be surprised at the varieties of dresses that feature this single element. Didn’t we tell you it is a popular favorite with brides, and it is no wonder that more and more designers are including it in their collections!

Now tell us, which of these ideas do you think is the best? And, will you be using any of these accessories to dress up on your big day?

Bridal jewelry suggestions for different fashion styles

Once you choose your wedding dress, you are only half-done with dressing up for your wedding day. You still have to choose your hairstyle, makeup and most importantly, the accessories to bring together your overall look.

Just like there are thousands of options in wedding dresses, there are plenty of choices in wedding jewelry too. Finding the right balance in size, structure and impact created by the chosen accessories, is important to fashioning your overall wedding day look. Neither should you go overboard with accessories that it competes with your wedding dress, nor should it be too simple that it doesn’t help you to stand out as a bride.

Here are some tips to keep in mind when choosing your wedding day jewelry.

  • Buy your wedding dress first: We always recommend buying your wedding dress first and then choosing matching accessories, as it is easier to do things in this order. The only exception is if you will be wearing heirloom jewelry or have already spent a fortune on jewelry that will be the signature element in creating your look.
  • Find the right balance: If your wedding dress is simple, choose statement jewelry that enhances your overall look. On the other hand, if you have chosen a richly embellished wedding dress with plenty of detail, opt for simple jewelry so your overall look isn’t cluttered.
  • Choose jewelry that suits your features: Always try on jewelry before you buy it, so you can make sure that it complements your facial features. Certain styles look better than others on different face shapes. So, make sure that the accessories you choose highlights your most attractive features.

Now you know what you should be looking for, when choosing your wedding jewelry.

With more and more brides preferring themed weddings, it is necessary to find jewelry that will contribute to the style they sport on their wedding day. Let us take a look at some inspiring wedding jewelry ideas for the most popular wedding themes we find these days.

1.Boho

This style is non-traditional, bold and vibrant. It is colorful, wild and has an unconventional edge that is both endearing and unusual, and is significantly different from anything traditional. When you are a Boho bride, your wedding dress will usually be dramatic enough. It isn’t necessary to find matching accessories for your wedding dress, as this style allows you to mix and play with entirely different styles to create your own signature look. Here are some ideas.

  • Instantly add style to your look with a unique headpiece that screams out your style statement. Feathers, flower crowns, oversize beaded head pieces and colorful headbands are all suitable for this style.

  • A colorful necklace with a lot of texture, like fabric strips, beads and stones, is a must-have. This will not only add color, it will also be a unique piece.

  • Prints and patterns appeal to Boho brides immensely, and there are many ways to add these to your ensemble. Consider wearing a earrings with colorful prints to instantly add a pop of color to your face.

earring

  • Unexpected pieces of jewelry like toe rings, anklets or other foot jewelry are an amazing way to make a statement, especially if your wedding dress just skims your ankles and exposes your dainty feet.

Classic

The name says it all—the classic bride prefers timeless trends that never go out of fashion. There is a refined sophistication to this style, and these brides usually have an affinity for pearls and diamonds in simple but stunning designs. Classic wedding dresses feature traditional silhouettes like ball gowns or A-line dresses, with or without sleeves. The makeup is usually quite simple, and the hair is done in simple styles like chignons, buns or simply let down. Here are the jewelry choices that complement this style.

  • The choice of necklace depends on the neckline of the gown. If the dress features an embellished or high neckline, the necklace can be eliminated. If not, these brides usually prefer a string of pearls or a simple necklace with a stone studded pendant. If the bride opts for color, this can be achieved with gemstones like emeralds, rubies or sapphires.
  • While some brides choose large studs and dangling earrings decorated with pearls or stones, others prefer to keep it simple with a single stone stud. Basically, aim to strike the right balance between the earring size and necklace. If the necklace is elaborate, it is best to avoid earrings or stick to simpler ones.

  • Hair accessories like little brooches, scintillating classy headbands or pretty beaded headpieces can be used to dress up your hair in a sophisticated way, especially if you aren’t using much jewelry in the rest of your outfit.

Vintage

Each vintage era has its distinct characteristics, and your jewelry should go well with the era that has inspired your wedding plans. If you are just aiming for an old-fashioned vibe, there are common elements like lace and pearls that suit almost all the styles. Let us take a look at some samples of what accessories would be suitable for a vintage style wedding dress.

  • Pearls and stones are a must-have, and the more elaborate the necklace, better it will match the vintage theme. Strings of pearls, like those featured in this picture, will bring the vintage effect alive in your outfit. If you want more drama, club different sized strings of pearls to come up with your own stylish interpretation of a vintage piece. Else search through your mother or grandmother’s jewelry collection to pick out necklaces that were trendy in their days.

  • Finish off your vintage hair up-do with a vivid headpiece with enough sparkle to make a statement. Whether you choose to place it around your crown, above your bun or as a string on just one side, it is bound to add that finishing touch to the perfect hairstyle.

  • Add a touch of vintage glam to your face with the help of oversize shiny loops in your ear. The more jazzy they look with shiny stones, the better it will be. With a pair as magnificent as in this picture, you can even skip a necklace, as they are absolute showstoppers.

Beach style

There are many brides who would have it no other way, than have their nuptials at the beach. Since these weddings are casual, fun and full of the essence of the sand and sea, their dress and accessories should reflect this tone too. While the wedding dress itself should best feature soft, lightweight, breezy fabric, the jewelry can be loud, with plenty of inspiration drawn from the frolicking waves and blue skies that characterize every beach location. Here are a few ideas.

  • Start with a nautical inspired headband. Here is one with starfish and flowers as blue as the ocean. The best part is that it weaves into the hair seamlessly, so it looks like it is a part of the hairdo. Could it get any better than this?

  • Pearl earrings and studs are perfect for a beach wedding, as these are associated with the ocean. However, if you want a casual look, go with colorful options like corals or shells in your jewelry, and it will look great. These dangling coral earrings are simply perfect to dress up your white attire with a little pop of color, and it is just apt for a beach wedding.

  • To go with your coral earrings, get an equally attractive coral necklace. The bright pop of pinkish orange will instantly color your wedding outfit and make you look like a sea princess, all set to be wed where surf meets turf. This coral necklace has a darker tone, and is perfectly complemented by the blue turquoise beads. The silver pendant adds a vintage touch and gives it a beautiful personality.

  • If there is one wedding where foot jewelry doesn’t look out of place, it has to be a beach wedding. Dress up your pretty feet with beautiful accessories, as you will be trotting through the sand and they will highlight your beautiful feet.

Glamorous

When we think of glamorous, the image that immediately comes to mind is plenty of glitter, sexy outfits and large signature style jewelry. When you choose a dress that has all the elements that make it captivating, you can wear just minimum jewelry to complement it. Take care to not overdo the jewelry, or you can end up looking over-the-top and cluttered. Here are some jewelry options to add a touch of glamour to your wedding day look.

  • If your wedding dress has a strapless neckline, bring on the bling with a loud and bright necklace. Gold is the ideal metal to use, as it instantly adds more glamour to your look. If not, opt for sparkles with gems in your necklace. Consider big motifs and large pendants for a striking finish. If you have a color theme for your wedding, don’t hesitate to consider a necklace with colored gems for that unique touch.

  • If an eye-catching necklace doesn’t appeal to you, choose big, bold earrings instead. If you wear your hair in an up do, draw focus to your face with dangling earrings. Instead, if you leave your hair down, a big stud is a better option as it will not get lost within your tresses. Remember to stick to only one statement piece of jewelry; either the earring or a necklace. If you will be wearing both, keep them small, so you don’t look like you belong in a costume parade.

  • Go bold with a big headpiece if you want to look really glamorous. We think it is most effective when hair pieces are placed on the side of the crown, instead of at the center. If you really want to look glamorous, you can wear a tiara. After all, it isn’t everyday that you can dress up like a princess, and get away with it.
  • Don’t forget that your fingers and arms can also revel in some extra attention. Consider adding a bright, brilliant bracelet to your ensemble, especially if your dress is strapless and you will be showing off your arms. If not a bracelet, then you should consider a big, statement ring for one of your fingers, that will pop with sparkle. Don’t forget to ask your photographer to spare some extra attention to pictures with your bouquets, and your fingers will get all the glory they deserve.

10 tips from the experts for choosing your wedding shoes

Shoes are a weakness for most regular women! Let’s face it, how many of us are able to resist the temptation to splurge on beautiful shoes? True that these may only be a part of the ensemble, and we may need various shoes for various looks, but it is an obsession that the opposite sex simply cannot understand.

And when the question is about wedding shoes, it is impossibly difficult to choose. This is just one pair of shoes that we have to choose from the hundreds of gorgeous and interesting varieties. I think that it is a very difficult decision, next only to choosing the wedding dress itself. Don’t you agree?

For those of you lovely ladies who are already straining your heads over which pair of shoes should be chosen for your big day, here is some valuable help. Our bridal experts at Best for Bride have the following valuable shoe-shopping advice for the soon-to-be brides. So, here goes.

1.Shoes should be next on the shopping list, following the wedding dress

Once you find your dream wedding gown, do not postpone shopping for your wedding shoes. It is even fine if you swap the order and buy your shoes first, even before your wedding dress. The only condition is that you should know what you want. We have seen brides choose their wedding dress with more ease than they were able to settle on a pair of shoes. Be prepared to have a lengthy shopping experience, if you are very particular about what you want to wear on your feet. So, once the dress shopping is out of the way, shoe shopping should be next on your list of to-do’s. Remember that you need your shoes for all your dress alteration appointments, from the first to the last. Only then can your wedding dress hem be altered to the right length. So, if you are exhausted after your wedding dress shopping, take a short break. But, don’t delay shopping for your wedding shoes beyond a week afterwards.

2.Style and comfort—two factors that matter

Your wedding shoes should not only look stylish, they should feel comfortable too. Many brides often worry that beautiful looking shoes will take time to adjust to, because they will pinch the feet and cause agony. However, this is not always so. By choosing good quality material and craftsmanship, you can easily come across a number of shoes that will look good, even while they feel great on your feet. Heels of leather and similar materials, and with thick cushioned insoles will be perfect. The comfort factor will also be affected by the type of heels you wear. You can be comfy without sacrificing style, by choosing flat heels instead of pointed ones. If you truly have difficulty finding wedding shoes that are comfortable, we suggest looking in the regular shoe aisles. Even the simplest pair of white heels can be dressed up to look wedding-worthy, if you are ready to spend some time and work on it.

3.Choose shoes with features you love

shoes

Your wedding shoes need not be white, they needn’t have high pointed heels, nor do they have to be crazy expensive. These are all factors that are up to you to choose. As with every other thing that you wear on your wedding day, your shoes should also be something you love. Don’t let tradition nor fashion dictate your choice. Choose shoes that are either beautiful with details that you love, or go with comfort as your benchmark. If you love shoes with a bow embellishment, or prefer a peep-toe detail, this is what you should look for. When you consider features, you should also think of the style that you are most comfortable in. Don’t force yourself into shoes with heels that are too high, if you have always avoided heels. Remember that your comfort and personal style are the most important factors to consider when choosing your wedding shoes.

4.Handmade shoes are the best

Handmade shoes have many desirable qualities. These include the extra comfort associated with this method of production and the unique look that you can achieve with handmade shoes. They also give you that special and unique feeling of being extra-pampered, because of how carefully they are made. It is likely that handmade shoes will be more expensive than the regular shoes you find in stores. Nevertheless, just like your wedding is a one-time occasion, your shoes can also be extra special this one time. Certain manufacturers can customize your shoes specifically to meet your expectations and do a few extra details so they match your wedding dress perfectly. However, you may have to place your order early to ensure that all this is done on time. Unlike store-brought shoes, there is a greater lead time associated with handmade shoes. So, this is one important factor to keep in mind.

5.Stock up on emergency shoe accessories

With a little luck, nothing will go wrong on your wedding day. But it never hurts to be extra cautions. So, prepare for your wedding day with spares and stock your emergency kit to meet any disaster. Your emergency supplies in the shoe department should include extra insoles, gum to stick any embellishment that comes loose, tissues and clear alcohol to rub off stains. Padded leather heel grips and shoe cushions will prevent you from slipping and non-slip insoles will provide added comfort. If you aren’t used to wearing heels, you may also like to carry a spare pair of shoes in a comfortable style, to wear while you dance or if your feet hurt from standing for too long on the day. Even if you do not intend to change your shoes during the day, it doesn’t hurt to carry a spare pair, just in case something goes wrong and you need a replacement to get through the day.

6.Wear them in

leg-1014597_640

New shoes are notorious for causing shoe-bite. Standing in a shoe that hasn’t been worn-in for an entire day can be tortuous, as you will be walking around and using it a lot on your wedding day. If the shoe pinches, your feet can be sore by the end of the evening, and this will ruin the entire experience for you. So, as soon as you take your shoes home, make sure you set aside time to wear it occasionally. This can be for an hour every three or four days, so your feet slowly get accustomed to the shoes. It will also help you feel comfortable moving around in it, especially if the shoe has high heels. You will not have to worry about wobbly shoes or tripping off the heels on the day of your wedding, if you are already used to the shoes. Additionally, wear it to your wedding dress appointments, and practice moving around in your wedding dress, while wearing these shoes. This will help you adjust to both the long and heavy gown, as well as the pretty shoes, and make the task of moving around on your wedding day much easier.

7.Always buy the correct fit

You may wear your wedding shoes only on the day you get married, or if you have thought this out very well, you may use it several times later. Either way, your shoes should fit you perfectly, and for this you need to buy them in your exact measurements. Shoes that almost fit can end up feeling loose or pinching your feet, when you have to spend hours in it on your wedding day. To find the right size, you should consider your feet’s width and shape, and whether there are any lumps or protrusions that have to be accommodated in your shoes. The right size would not pinch your toes, rub the ankle bone and sides, or feel like they are squashing your feet within. This makes it essential to try your shoes on, before you actually buy it. If you purchase your shoes online, read the return policy and warranty statements. Make sure you can return it or exchange it for another size if it doesn’t feel right when you actually try it on.

8.Keep your venue in mind when choosing shoes

Not all shoes are suitable in all venues. Consider whether the shoes you like will be suitable for the venue you choose. Venues like historic mansions and places with wooden flooring may have specific rules about wearing pointed heels. Check this out first, before you invest money in a pair of amazing heels. Heels may also not be practical in hillside parks, or at venues with long winding staircases that you will have to go up and down multiple times. Apart from the venue, you should also keep the weather in mind when choosing shoes. If your wedding is in autumn or winter, you may like to look for closed and cosy shoes, that will keep your feet from feeling too cold. Or you can carry a pair of wedding boots as a spare for when you have to go out in the cold.

9.Always have an alternate idea in mind

shoes-448350_640

If there is one wedding accessory that you shouldn’t have your mind set on to the last detail, it is your wedding shoes. Since this is a tight fitting accessory, and one that has limited room for adjustments, you should always be open to options. Look for ideas in pictures, but be prepared to search when you actually go shopping. Otherwise, it will be a disappointment if you are unable to find a comfortable pair of shoes with features that you love. While style is a necessary factor, don’t ever compromise comfort for style. Although it is only one day that you will have to spend it your shoes, an ill-fitting pair can do enough damage to your feet to leave you pain for several days afterwards. You do not want to spend your honeymoon limping around in flip-flops to get over the blisters and wounds you made on your feet. Be ready to look at options besides those that are closest to what you have in mind, or spend the little extra to have your shoes handmade and customized to your specific requirement, and you will be better off.

10.Think outside the box

If you are unable to find shoes in the color you want to wear, don’t panic or reach for a pair that you think will do the job, even if it means spending more or being uncomfortable. Shoe dyeing services allow you to dye a pair of chosen shoes in any chosen shade, so it is just perfect for you. So, if you are stuck in a situation where you love a pair of shoes, except that they aren’t the right color, consider having it dyed. Similarly, there are plenty of other options to add that extra dose of glamour to your feet. You can buy pretty shoe accessories online, and this includes bows, ribbons, stickers, stones and other embellishments. These are relatively inexpensive, but allow you to achieve a special touch of beauty with these accessories. There are also plenty of tutorials online that can help you customize your shoes to look extra-special. So, check them out for help.

The right pair of shoes can work magic in making you feel extraordinary and amazing on your big day. And, this is something every bride deserves. So, spare no attention to detail, and don’t compromise on what you choose to wear on your feet on the day you say “I do.”
