Clever tips for shopping and choosing your wedding accessories

Jewelry and accessories play an important role in your bridal look. It is thus important that you plan your shopping well, so they enhance your overall bridal look. For, only then will all the elements come together in a cohesive manner and enable you to look gorgeous.

Although jewelry and accessories are an important part of the bridal outfit, most brides think of them as an afterthought. This is one of the first mistakes to avoid. Instead of just going shopping and picking up something that you think will work well with your dress, plan your look well. Think of the different options that will enhance your features, show off your dress and complement the theme. This will help you narrow down your jewelry and accessories choices better.

Here are some clever tips to help you get an idea of how to choose the right wedding jewelry.

Always buy your jewelry and accessories after the dress

It isn’t uncommon for brides to end up buying a dress that is totally different from what they envisioned. In fact, we have lost count of the number of times a bride comes shopping with a definite idea of what she wants, and walks out with a dress that she never imagined she would buy.This is why we suggest that you shortlist the features you want to see in your dress. You can then look at dresses that satisfy most of your preferences, if not all. Remember that you may end up going on an unending search to find a dress that satisfies every one of your requirements, unless you have it tailored. Hence we suggest you first pick the dress, and then move on to looking at jewelry.

Let your dress be the guide when picking jewelry and accessories

The right type of jewelry and accessories work with the wedding dress, not against it! Brides who strike the right balance between the dress and the accessories look amazing. So, as a general rule of thumb, choose simple accessories if your dress is opulent. If your dress is simple with few features that stand out, heavy and flashy accessories are suitable. Look at the neckline, sleeves, how heavy the skirt is and work in the bodice to decide what would look appropriate to balance out your look.

Look online before you go to the shops

Most jewelers and accessories vendors list their inventory online. You can also find plenty of inspiration on the internet, on Pinterest and bridal websites. It is a good idea to browse through the different available designs and identify options you like most. Since you may not be used to wearing elaborate head pieces, veils and tiaras before, it is a good idea to gather information on what would suit your style, facial features and taste. An online search will help you understand what is available. Visit various jewelry websites to make use of offers and discounts that will help you get a better deal for the money you spend on your accessories.

Choose your outfit properly when you go wedding shopping

The neckline of your dress is a big factor to consider when picking jewelry. If your accessories clash with the neckline, the entire effect will be ruined. To avoid this, wear a dress or top with the same neckline as your wedding dress, when you go shopping. This way, you can gather a fair idea of how the necklace, earrings and veil will look with the wedding dress neckline. Also choose a light or white colored top, to get the actual picture of how the jewelry will look against your dress. If you wear a colorful dress, the color of the stones will show up differently than it would against white.

You needn’t buy if you would rather rent

Just like wedding dresses, wedding jewelry isn’t cheap. If you are a person who loves jewelry and will most likely use your wedding gems after your wedding day, it is a worthwhile investment. However, if you don’t normally wear jewelry, it is a better idea to rent. Many wedding dress rental shops also rent out wedding jewelry. You should be able to find accessories that match your wedding dress with this option. The shop that you rent from may ask you to put down a deposit for the time you take the jewelry away. However, it is the easiest way to looking great on your special day, at minimum cost.

Match the stones and metals

What we mean by this is that you should keep the effect cohesive. When you shop for wedding jewelry you will have various options like rhinestones, pearls, colored gemstones and more. Try to achieve a cohesive effect by choosing the same type of stones for each of your accessories. Similarly, be careful about mixing different metals as it can look cluttered. Don’t mix and match too much or you will ruin the overall effect. Even if the pieces look good on their own, they will not contribute to your look if they are all too different.

Know the best combinations for the white of your gown

Wedding gowns come in different shades of white. There’s bright white, champagne white, ivory, candlelight and ecru. Different metals look good with the different whites mentioned here. Pearls and metals with silver finishes are best with pure or bright white. Off-white colors like ivory and candlelight work well with gold and silver. Champagne looks good with rose-gold embellishments and jewelry. Ivory and ecru have yellow undertones and are good with yellow gold. You can also look at the embellishments in your gown, as a guide. If your gown has crystal and silver embroidery, choose the same colors in your jewelry. Similarly, if it features gold or pearls, it is best to follow the same in your gown for a cohesive effect.

Re-purpose traditional jewelry for a contemporary look

If you have heirloom jewelry that doesn’t fully appeal to your taste, don’t reject it saying it doesn’t fit your style. Nonetheless, don’t wear it as it is if you aren’t fond of it. Instead, consider whether you can re-purpose it to suit your modern taste. Many jewelry shops offer this service. So, you can transform your family heirloom into a modern design with their assistance. Simply decide what you want the heirloom piece to be transformed into. Don’t limit yourself to making small changes. Brides have changed necklaces into earrings and bracelets, and strings of pearls into hair accessories. Ultimately, the important factor remains that the sentiment is still there, while you can wear jewelry that is more your style on your special day.

You don’t have to wear one of every accessory

The last thing you want to do is look cluttered with gems. Too many accessories and jewelry will make you look too busy. The different things you wear will then drown in sparkle and not be visible. The better option is to wear just the pieces that are actually necessary. It is a good idea to have one focal piece of jewelry and one or two more pieces to complement it. If your wedding dress is simple, make your focal piece big and bright for more sparkle. In case it is an ornate gown, keep your jewelry simple and light to get the look right.

Think of how photogenic your gems will be, when you choose them

Although your accessories may look fabulous to your eye, it isn’t necessary that it will photograph equally well. Certain stones may have a dull finish that will have an old and faded look in photos. And intricate finishes may not show up in pictures. So, pay attention to how your jewelry and accessories will reflect on camera. We suggest that you take some pictures to test how they look when clicked and only then make your final decision.

Be bold, go for color

Although there are plenty of options these days, not all brides are comfortable in anything but a white wedding gown. If you aren’t sure, but you love color, explore the variety of colorful gems to add that pop of color to your outfit. Take a chance with color, and you may be pleasantly surprised. Colored gem stones accentuate the beauty of any outfit. They are hence a perfect choice for the bride, especially if your wedding has a color theme. Colored gems give you the chance to incorporate the color theme into your wedding attire. Choose sparkling stones like sapphires, emeralds and rubies for a radiant effect and gems like jade, turquoise and coral for a casual wedding theme.

Don’t forget to check how you look from every angle

Don’t focus entirely on how you look from the front, when choosing accessories! Remember that you will be facing away from your guests during the ceremony. So, use this opportunity to show off some extra style. Use dainty hair accessories that pack a punch from the back, or include a sash that has a beautiful tie-back that will impress. Additional accessories can help you look good from all angles. So, choose wisely.

Avoid extreme trends

Your wedding photos are images that will be frozen for eternity. Your generation, as well as future generations will always remember you by how you looked on your wedding day. Don’t appear dated in them by choosing jewelry that is too trendy and will go out of fashion in no time. Classic styles are always fashionable and hence a safe choice. However, if you want to try out contemporary designs, do so by all means. Just ensure that they aren’t styles that are entirely new on the wedding fashion scene.

Make the most of package deals

The bridal ensemble takes up a huge chunk of the overall wedding budget. One way to make your money go further is to opt for package deals that give you more value for the money you spend. For example, bridal shops often have big discounts on jewelry and accessories, if you buy it along with your dress. This will allow you to find the accessories for your big day without breaking the bank. At Best for Bride, we often have deals on accessories that are purchased with the wedding dress. The alternative is to have a flat percentage off the dress price. When you compare both options, you will realize that buying accessories as part of the package will help you save more.

Everything depends on your personality

We mentioned a number of rules here. However, no rule is set in stone and everything finally boils down to what you like. If you want to bring on the bling, do so! Or if you aren’t satisfied with the just one statement piece, wear all that you like and plan the rest of your outfit to balance it out. If you don’t favor jewelry, keep it simple and find basic pieces that suit your taste. You should be comfortable with the choices you make, as this is what will reflect on your wedding day. As long as you love what you see, you won’t regret your choices later.

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?

10 tips to remember when choosing your wedding jewelry

While a wedding dress can transform you into a beautiful bride, wedding jewelry is quintessential to add the finishing touches to your bridal look. Your choice of accessories impacts your wedding day look to considerable extent, and hence what you choose to wear with your wedding gown is very important. Here are ten smart tips to keep in mind when you, the pretty bride, have to choose your wedding day jewelry.

1.Always buy your wedding dress first

Your wedding dress should be first on your shopping list, and not something you buy after choosing your accessories. It is easier to find accessories that match the dress, than the reverse. The only exception is when you will be wearing heirloom jewelry. Heirloom jewelry usually features designs that go well with classic wedding gown designs. Since the wedding dress aisles are chock full of classic collections, it shouldn’t be difficult to find a dress that works with this jewelry. This may however, not be the case with modern designs. Since modern jewelry are usually very specific in nature, you may end up on a wild goose chase, to find a gown that matches the style of your chosen accessory. So, if your theme is something unusual, (like a peacock theme or rainbow theme), and you wish to find accessories like belts or headbands that match this theme, first buy your dress and then go shopping for the accessories. This will be easier to match.

2.Balance is key

Simple is elegant. The more details you use, the more chances of the finer ones getting lost in the jumble. When you choose your wedding jewelry, you should balance it out with the details on your dress. If your wedding gown is elaborate with intricate beading, embroidery or other details, keep the jewelry simple. If you have chosen a minimalist wedding gown, or one with few details, it is fine to choose bigger and bolder jewelry. Similarly, pay attention to how the jewelry comes together with the details on your dress. If the wedding dress has an elaborate neckline, go easy on the necklace. Or if the dress has long sleeves, you can skip wearing a bracelet. If there is a motif of significant size on the bust, neckline or waist, your jewelry should not clash with it. Balancing your total look is tricky, but it can be achieved if you try to focus on what you really need. Your guests will not think much of your fashion sense if you end up looking like a disco ball. So, stay away from the temptation to choose more sparkles than is really necessary.

3.You need not wear several jewelry pieces

Whether you buy a jewelry set, or choose each piece separately, you do not have to wear everything on the list. This can again clutter up the overall look, and take away the impact that can be achieved by just one statement piece. If your necklace is flashy and big, wear small studs or leave out earrings entirely. You also have to tie the overall look to any statement motifs or embellishments on your wedding gown. If your dress features a beaded sash or waistband, go easy with the bling in your necklace. A single statement jewelry piece is very fashionable. When there are no other pieces that compete for attention, all eyes will be on this single piece of jewelry and that makes it effective.

4.The metal colors should match the dress

This is because some colors look good together, while other combinations may clash against each other and ruin the effect of both. When choosing jewelry, you have choices like white, gold and pink. Jewelry made from metals like silver, palladium, platinum and white gold look good with stark white dresses or those with silver embellishments and beading. Jewelry in shades of yellow and gold look better with creamy white wedding dresses. Rose gold goes with white and silver. Also if the embellishments in your dress are silver, stick to the same color or gemstones that are set in a white base, so they match. If the embellishments are with pearls and beads, you could wear a string of pearls and other matching accessories. Colorful details on the dress, like sashes and waistbands should also be considered when choosing the color of the accessories. Certain shades like navy and gray look better with white than with gold or rose gold.

5.Don’t forget your hair

You may not be a big fan of wearing a tiara on your wedding day, but there is no harm if you do. Nevertheless, there are many fascinating options in hair accessories, like combs and head pieces that can make you look very pretty. Whether you tie your hair up or leave it down, you should consider decorating it with a headpiece that matches your dress and adds more impact to your overall look on the day. Choose big or small hair accessories, depending on the color and texture of your hair and the size of your face. If you have thick curls, you may need bigger accessories for it to be noticeable. For fine and thin hair, elaborate accessories may look too heavy. Also, your accessories need not be metal. For brides who love flowers, you can weave flowers into your hair for a natural but classic look. Flower crowns are another interesting accessory to consider. Also remember that varying the position of the accessory on your head, can help you achieve different looks. So, try out different options to find the best placement location. Finally, don’t pick out your hair accessories before you decide upon your hairstyle for your wedding day. This is because some hair accessories do not look good with specific styles. So, you may have to reconsider your choice if they do not go well when you try them together.

6.Think beyond the wedding ceremony

Unlike your wedding dress, you can get more than just one use out of your wedding jewelry. Keep this factor in mind when you choose accessories. This actually makes it worthwhile to spend a little more on your jewelry. Rather than choose accessories that are apt just for the day, or pieces that go well with the wedding theme, invest in jewelry that you like, and can see yourself using again in the future. If there is a gemstone that you are fond of, or there are certain designs that you have fallen in love with, this may be the time to seriously consider buying it. This could even be your something new. It is also a fact that jewelry is a good investment, as you can pass it on as an heirlooom to your children. They are more likely to use it than they are to use your wedding dress.

7.Consider renting if it is too expensive

If you are on a tight budget, investing too much money in your wedding accessories may not be possible. However, you do not want this factor to lessen the impact of your wedding day look. In such a case, you can have what you want for a reasonable budget, when you rent your accessories. At Best for Bride, we offer all bridal accessories on rent, just like we rent out wedding dresses. Since these pieces of jewelry are well-cared for, and look brand new, nobody is going to know that you aren’t wearing stuff that belongs to you. This is also an affordable option to have bigger and more beautiful and expensive pieces that you may not be able to consider otherwise. Choose jewelry that matches your wedding dress style, and collect it a day or two before your wedding after signing the required paperwork. All you now have to do is take good care of them while they are in your custody, and enjoy dressing up like a princess on the biggest day of your life; without a hefty fee, that is!

8.The necklace can make or break your look

If there is one thing that your jewelry should match, it is the neckline of your dress. Finding the right adornment for your neckline style can instantly add extra points to your look. For a low-cut neckline like a sweetheart or strapless, almost any style of necklace would look good. This can be a string of pearls, a bold necklace or even a simple necklace with a pendant. For the illusion neckline, the dress will usually feature an ornate neck area. This eliminates the need for a necklace, and you can wear a small one if absolutely necessary. A thin chain with a pendant would go well with a V-neckline. For halter dresses, it is best to skip the necklace altogether and focus on the hair and ear accessories instead.

9.Strive to stick to how you normally look

If you have always been big on the bling, your wedding day needs not be different. However, if you have always worn simple accessories, then you will feel and look drastically different on your wedding day if you were to drown yourself in jewelry. Whatever you wear should be an extension of your personality. Only then will it bode well with your overall look. So, don’t try something that you have never done before, for the first time on your wedding day. Look to your best looking moments from the past to decide what kind of jewelry will suit you the most. Think of the one piece of jewelry that everyone has appreciated on you, in the past. This is most likely a design that complements your style and enhances your beauty. Try to find wedding jewelry in a similar style, and you are likely to find the best one for your natural features. As with your hairstyle and makeup, your accessories should also enhance your natural beauty and add that extra dose of glamour to you—not change you into a whole other person who nobody can recognize.

10.Mix and match jewelry sensibly

Your wedding day is not the occasion to bring out all the expensive stuff that you own. As with mixing metals in your accessories, mix the gemstones also with care. Too much variation in color, style and design can do more harm than good in making you look your best. Stick with one colored stone throughout your accessories and choose jewelry that follows a similar pattern. Mixing up pink and white pearls in different parts of your ensemble, or wearing rhinestones on your neck and pearls in your bracelet can make you look like a fashion disaster. Also, don’t forget to match your watch to the rest of your jewelry in terms of color and finish. If you have difficulty finding one that goes well with the rest of your accessories, there is no harm in skipping it.

It is absolutely essential to try on your wedding jewelry, along with your wedding dress, prior to your wedding day. You can take your accessories with you to one of your fitting appointments, when you will anyway be trying on your wedding dress. If you do your hair also in the style that you will be wearing on your wedding day, you can have a fair idea of how you will look on your big day. This will also allow you to make any modifications to the look, if you want to.

Cool wedding accessories for the winter bride

Winter weddings are no longer unusual or nerve-wracking. There are plenty of brides who choose to get married in winter, making the most of the discounts during this off-season and thus having a fantastic wedding at a fraction of the original cost.

Nevertheless, winter weddings involve a certain level of planning, since the harsh weather may throw up some extra challenges. The bride has to choose her attire and accessories so that they are both practical and good-looking. Fortunately, there are plenty of options out there to consider.

If you are a winter bride, you do not have to worry about compromising your style. Instead, you can look fetching and perhaps even more glamorous than a spring or summer bride, when you plan your look properly. Here are some cool winter accessory suggestions we are sure you will love.

Winter wedding hair accessories

Elegant winter has a cool and crisp white charm to it. To make an impact in this striking white canvass, you need some sparkle. So, your winter wedding jewelry choice should essentially sparkle and shine. This is the right time to go with oversize wedding necklaces and earrings and not look overwhelming. Crystals, zirconia and diamonds are all options to consider. If you want to nail the fairy tale look, don’t hesitate to choose a tiara as your headpiece. Winter is one season when the tiara looks right, and it isn’t everyday that you can walk around wearing it. So, make the most of it when you can.

Here are two suggestions from our accessories collection at Best for bride.

This dazzling beauty is a head piece that can be considered a crown. With one that is so spectacular in size and details, you do not even need a veil to accompany it. Whether you pair it with your hair let down or with a bun, we think it will undoubtedly be a beautiful accessory. Find out more about this beautiful tiara by visiting this link.

If you felt the first one was a little too sparkly for your taste, here is a headpiece that is elegant and sophisticated, but much smaller in size. This headpiece features both sparkling stones as well as pearls, thus bringing together two different elements to fashion an elegant and pretty design. With this design, you can pair it with a matching necklace and ear studs as is featured here and complete your look perfectly. Check out this headpiece by visiting this link.

Winter Veil

Though not all brides choose to wear veils today, winter is a time when you should really consider this wedding accessory, simply for the added impact it can create. A wedding veil that is placed beautifully can transform you into a snow queen, and once again this is the season when even the longest and thickest veils will not look out of place. We love layered veils, not just for the added material it contains, but for the layered look that is so mysterious.

Here is a short double layer veil from our collection at Best for Bride. Simple in its structure, but with huge impact from the ruffled up layers in it, this is a beautiful choice that will complement almost any wedding gown. Whether you pair it with a sparkling headpiece, or wear it by itself, it will be an attractive accessory that will improve your overall bridal look.

Boleros or jackets

When you get married in winter, there will certainly be few minutes during the day when you will have to step out in the cold. It could either be during your entry into the venue from your vehicle, or when you go outdoors to take photographs in the cold. However brief the time spent outdoors may be, you will have to cover your shoulders and arms to keep from feeling too cold.

Many brides choose full-sleeve wedding dresses for winter weddings, as these usually cover up the shoulders and arms. However, there are brides who do not like this look at all. If you are a bride who has your mind set on a strapless or sleeveless design, do not worry. You can still wear this dress, and simply find an accessory like a bolero or jacket that allows you cover up when outdoors. A bolero is a short jacket that basically covers only your arms, shoulders and upper back. A jacket is longer and gives more significant coverage. It would be a good idea to choose either of these in white, as it will go well with your wedding dress.

Take a look at the jacket with this dress from our in-house collection at Best for Bride. The strapless satin gown can be worn by itself, or with this beautiful jacket that adds instant style to the otherwise simple design. With full-sleeves that start high at the neck and extend into a Juliet-style sleeve that later flares out at the base, this jacket is a beautiful accessory. Don’t you think it is a great choice for a wedding in the cooler months, when that little coverage is essential to stay away from the chilly breeze? If you want to check out this wedding dress and accessory, you can do so by visiting this page.

If you would like to look at something warmer and a little more dressy, we also have this beautiful fur cape with fine Tulle lace lining the sleeves and Peter Pan collars and further covering the edges along the entire length. The neckline can be drawn close with the little woolen tassels and keep you smug for as long as you have to spend in the outdoors. It is a great choice to wear with both lace wedding gowns and satin gowns, as the style works well with both vintage and modern styles alike.

Stylish wrap

Some wedding dresses have elaborate and exquisite detailing in the neck and shoulder regions, that wearing a jacket or bolero may conceal it completely. Another factor is that boleros and jackets aren’t very versatile, and there are very few ways in which they can be styled. If this factor makes jackets and boleros less attractive to you, the winter wedding accessory you should consider is a stylish wrap. Just as warm as a jacket, but one that allows you a lot of flexibility in the way you wear it, a wrap is perfect for a winter bride. It can be worn around the neck and shoulders, and the accessory can be used to keep the arms warm when outdoors. Depending on the fabric and thickness, there are different ways in which it can be worn. Wraps can be styled either as shawls or as scarves, and are a functional as well as good-looking accessory.

Featured here is a fur wrap, that is very comfortable and cozy to wear on a cold snowy day. The other options you can consider are wraps in materials like silk or made from pashmina, that are warm but not too bulky. It is a good idea to match the wrap to your wedding dress color, as this will add to your overall style.

White wedding boots

One of the most important things to remember when choosing your wedding shoes is that they should be comfortable. You will be spending long hours standing in them, and it should keep your feet snug and warm. In winter, you can always go with the traditional wedding shoe styles. However, they may not really be cozy if you have to spend even a short amount of time outdoors. The better option is to choose shoes that are appropriate footwear for the cold weather. Don’t worry that you’ll have to skimp on style because of this. There are great choices in white boots that are both fashionable and practical too.

Shoes like the ones featured in the picture here are very stylish, and they can make sure you look gorgeous from top to toe. The special button-up design featured in the front makes it exquisite and attractive, and nobody could possibly question your fashion sense when you choose a pair like this. While you can always change into a pair of boots when stepping outside and wear your regular wedding shoes for the rest of the time, we think that you needn’t even do that when you have a splendid pair like these. There are also shoes that are lined with fur and can keep you warm.

Glittering ear pieces and bracelets

We’ve already mentioned about how sparkling jewelry is a must-have for a winter bride who wants drama and glamour. Here, we should specially mention over-size ear pieces and bracelets, as these are necessary to creating the perfect bridal look with maximum impact. Chandelier earrings, drops and large hoops are all great choices for winter wedding accessories. When the sparkle is not spared in any way, the effect is really beautiful and noticeable.

Take a look at the accessories this bride has chosen for her winter wedding day. The oversize earrings have a striking effect, and they work well with the dazzling neckline of the wedding gown, also scintillating from the intricate crystal elements scattered over it. All these details make it a good idea to skip a necklace for this dress, as it could create a cluttered look. Instead she has chosen to wear two bracelets, again with plenty of sparkle, to dress up her slender arms. We think it is altogether fantastic, don’t you agree? If you decide to skip the oversize earrings and choose something subtle, like a ear stud, don’t hesitate to add more sparkle to your overall look with a beautiful necklace. We have also found that  jewelry with deep dark gemstone looks particularly grand in the winter wedding scene. Stones like blue sapphire and deep red rubies are perfect to create this effect.

Glamor with gloves

Just like we found warm and snug winter boots to warm your feet, you need something to cozy up and keep your hands warm too. Bring back the charm of vintage style with a pair of fantastic white gloves, that will double up by keeping you perfectly snug. Whether you choose to wear them throughout the day, or only when you step outdoors, it will still be a ravishing style statement. You can choose them in material like suede, leather or even fabric, depending on what matches your style. If you do not want to cover your entire wrist and hand, you can also consider wrist warmers that leave your fingers exposed. You can wear this throughout the ceremony, as it is possible to use even during the exchange of rings.

If you want something truly vintage, forego the modern short glove that ends at the wrist, and instead choose long gloves that extend all the way from your fingertips to the elbows. Imagine how classic the pairing of these style of gloves would be with a strapless or sweetheart neckline.

We hope these ideas will help you accessorize your wedding dress to stay warm and still stylish at your winter wedding.

Bridal Accessories for a Beach Wedding

Is your wedding to be held on a tropical island or a sun-kissed beach with soft golden sand and frothy waves blending into the décor?

The beautiful thing about beach weddings is the casual and fun air about them. Such weddings are both relaxing and exciting at the same time. Since your wedding is a big step away from being a formal event, everything about you—the bride, should be different too.

Your wedding dress choices range from light breezy A-line gowns and mermaid-inspired dresses to short frocks that are more appropriate for the sea and sand. If you don’t want the traditional white gown, you can even go with the current trend of ruffled dresses in light breezy or tactile fabrics. Styles on the runway this year, showcased designs with feathers and extreme embellishments on sheer fabric—ideal ideas for a fun beach wedding.

via Best for Bride

Once you choose your wedding dress, it is time to find the accessories to complete your look. Read on to find out more about the choices that will transform you into a beautiful beach bride.

Messy hairdos, beach waves and floral headpieces

Traditional tiaras and veils are absolute no-no’s in a beach wedding. Capture the essence of the natural skies, blue waters and warm sands with headpieces that are casual and fun. A messy hair updo, loose chignon, braids or gentle finger waves would look stunning. Dress up your hairstyle with an oversize bloom, or let your curls loose and opt for a floral headband instead. You could even choose a floral hair clip instead of fresh flowers, but make sure that it looks real and not plastic.

Bangles and bracelets

Not essential, but bangles and bracelets can be superb accessories when chosen well. We prefer the oversize chunky ones that have a rustic charm, instead of ornate and traditional ones. Bracelets made with wood or natural gemstones like quartz, sandstone and turquoise have an unfinished rustic feel and look the best. You can also choose bracelets with nautical charms like anchors, ships and dolphins, or thick bangles with beach-motifs for a simpler choice that gels well with the wedding theme.

Necklace and earrings

If you have chosen a bigger headband, you should go easy with your necklace and earrings, or it would end up looking too cluttered. A chain with a shell or dolphin pendant would be good enough. Consider choosing studs that match your bracelet, or go with pearls for your necklace and earrings for an authentic beach effect.

Peep-toes or beach sandals

Since you cannot consider heels for your wedding, cover your toes gorgeous in a pair of bright peep-toes or practical sandals. Choose embellished sandals to dress up your feet, or pair your choice with an interesting anklet or toe-rings.

Remember to experiment with a variety of accessories, till you find the perfect mix for your wedding day. Make sure you wear your wedding dress along with the rest of the accessories and see how your look comes together, before you head for your wedding destination.

Styling tips to help you choose accessories for your bridesmaids

Your bridesmaids have an important role to play in your wedding. When they look good, the entire wedding feels good. So, you have to make sure that you pay close attention to how they will be dressed.

In most cases bridesmaids pay from their pockets for their dresses. The least the bride can do for these women who agree to happily shoulder their responsibilities, is to buy them their accessories. Don’t you agree?

These simple styling tips will help you choose the right accessories for your bridesmaids dresses.

#Tip 1

Shop for accessories only after choosing the dresses

While there are accessories that go well with almost any dress, they aren’t necessarily the best choice. So, wait till you buy the bridesmaids dresses, to go shopping for their accessories. This way, you will avoid wasting time and can make a better selection.

#Tip 2

Simple dresses go with bold accessories and vice-versa

This is a very simple rule, yet one that many women fail to follow. Be it for a wedding or a cocktail party, it is not the dress or accessories that are the main focus, but the woman wearing it. For an uncluttered and elegant look, balance out the dress with the supporting accessories. For an embellished dress (like a sequined or patterned dress or one in a bold color), keep the accessories minimum. If the dress is relatively simple or in neutral shades with little to no accents, dress it up with attractive accessories.

#Tip 3

Let the neckline decide whether a necklace is necessary

Necklaces are accessories that can make or break a look. Not all dresses need necklaces to look great. For example, wearing a necklace with a halter dress would be too much. On the other hand, a sweetheart or bateau neckline would be emphasized with a pretty necklace.

#Tip 4

Don’t be scared to experiment with color

There is more than one way in which you can add color to your bridesmaids outfits. While the obvious choice is to choose a colorful dress, you should remember that not all colors look good on all women. You want your best friends to love their look, don’t you? If you prefer neutrals and toned down colors for their dresses, add pops of color with bright and bold accessories. This may be with shoes, waistbands or jewelry. When colors are paired with the neutral background of their dresses, the effect is enhanced.

#Tip 5

Mix and match accessories to suit each bridesmaids taste, but keep the look cohesive

bracelets

Your bridesmaids have different personalities. Respect their individuality and let their looks reflect who they are. The accessories you choose for each woman should be suitable for her taste and match her style. This way you can make them all happy. The only thing to remember when choosing the accessories is to keep one factor uniform throughout. This could either be the color, the design or the impact it creates.

Now that you know what you should look out for when choosing bridesmaids accessories, how about finding the perfect dresses for your pretty friends? Visit our online store at Best for Bride for designer collections of the best bridesmaids gowns in all styles and price ranges.

The Do’s and Don’ts of choosing bridal accessories

via Best for Bride

Bridal accessories add the finishing touches to your bridal outfit. Choosing the right accessories will enhance the beauty of your wedding outfit, and complete your bridal look.

There are certain do’s and don’ts when choosing your wedding accessories, so that it complements your wedding dress. Let us look at them now.

Do:

Pair your dress with complementary accessories

The type of accessories you choose should depend on the type of wedding dress you have. If your dress is rich in details and complete with embellishments such as rhinestones, crystal beading and plenty of metallic embroidery, keep your accessories simple. On the other hand, if your dress is relatively simple, you can dress it up with bold jewelry. Although your wedding dress is white, you do not have to choose your accessories in white too. You can opt for gemstones in various colors, as long as it complements the look.

Keep the metals uniform throughout your attire

With wedding accessories available in silver, gold and other colors, remember that it is best when all your accessories are made in the same metal. Also, don’t forget to match the choice of metal to the embellishments and color of your wedding gown. Silver and white accessories look good with stark white wedding dresses, while creamy and off-white gowns can be paired with pearls and gold or rose-toned jewelry.

Think of your overall look when choosing accessories

via Best for Bride

Before you go shopping for wedding accessories, you should plan the overall look you want to achieve. This will help you decide the type of accessories that can create it. If your dress has a bold neckline with plenty of details, opt for bigger earrings, and skip the necklace altogether. If your dress has a sweetheart or strapless bodice, consider a dramatic necklace. When you choose to put your hair up, wear longer earrings; if you let your hair down, choose small studs instead. Select your veil according to the style of your dress. If there is an illusion back that you want to show off, go for a sheer veil.

Don’t:

Overdo the accessories

Some brides go overboard with the accessories and end up looking cluttered. Less is more, and make sure you choose only what you are comfortable in. Keep the sparkles limited to create a classic overall effect, and remember that you want your accessories to enhance your wedding dress, not steal focus from it.

Wait till the last minute to try your accessories on with your wedding dress

via Best for Bride

You should see how well your accessories go with your wedding dress, by wearing them together before your wedding day. Rather than speculating, try it on and find out for yourself. You can then make changes, should it not look as good as you expected it to.

Forget about comfort

You shouldn’t feel weighed down with your wedding dress and accessories. Choose only that what feels comfortable. If you aren’t used to wearing dangling earrings or high heels, don’t try it for the first time on your wedding day. If a veil feels too difficult to handle, choose one that is sheer and light weight, and it will be a lot easier to handle.

Let us look at some wedding customs from various countries of the world, and understand how each culture solemnizes the union of man and woman.

China

China is a huge country with many ethnic groups. So, the wedding customs vary greatly from one region to another. The traditional style of matchmaking had matchmakers who took the proposal from the groom to the girl’s family. The wedding was fixed only after a fortune teller predicted whether the couple would have a happy life together. Traditional wedding attires of both bride and groom were in red. The bride and her party were expected to cry for days leading up to the wedding, as this symbolized her grief of leaving her home. After the wedding rituals, the guests were treated to a feast, that often had six or nine courses.

Indian weddings involve several rituals and take days to complete. The traditional bridal attire includes heavy jewelry, elaborate hairstyles with flowers and beautiful dresses with plenty of golden embroidery and embellishments. The bride is adorned with turmeric during the Haldi ceremony, and her hands and feet decorated with mehendi (semi-permanent tatoos) a few days before the wedding. The groom’s family arrives in a procession and are welcomed by the bridal party. The couple exchange flower garlands to symbolize their acceptance of each other. In some cultures, the groom ties a necklace called the mangalsutra, around the bride’s neck and this has to be worn by the bride at all times.The couple circle the holy fire, as they vow to love and care for each other.

Tips to choose the right Necklace for your wedding dress

via Best for Bride

Once you have purchased the perfect wedding dress, it is time to start looking for matching accessories. This may seem like an easy task, but it is not too different from your experience of buying a wedding dress. While you do not have to research or plan for months, you must realize that there are plenty of options in wedding accessories, and that is all it takes to end up confused.

One fact you should remember when choosing any accessory, is that it should work with the wedding dress, not against it. Wearing it should enhance your wedding dress, and not distract from it. If you have chosen a dress with plenty of details like sparkling crystals and embellishments, go with simple accessories to avoid looking like a glittering maze. If your dress is relatively simple, you can choose bold accessories, and thus dress it up.

In this article, we will look at a very important wedding dress accessory – the necklace! Since a necklace will be displayed prominently, let us find out how to choose one that will properly complement your wedding dress.

Dress neckline and matching necklace

Not all wedding dresses need a necklace. If your dress has an embellished neckline with gorgeous detailing, skip the necklace altogether. Instead pair it with statement earrings or crystal drops to complement the look. Similarly, if your dress features halter straps or if the neckline is a high cut square, bateau or scoop, adding a necklace can make it seem crowded.

A strapless or sweetheart neckline, as well as one with spaghetti straps calls for a necklace, as your decolletage may seem a little plain without anything to adorn it.

Necklace that complements the dress color

If your dress is ornate and has plenty of details, choose a small and delicate necklace to match. If your gown is ivory, you can opt for gold or rose-toned jewelry. For diamond and white gowns, match it with silver, platinum or pearl jewellery. You can also choose colored stones with any of these options, as long as it is set in a complementary metal color. If your wedding gown is colored, you would have to pay more attention to finding a complementary neck-piece that doesn’t clash with the color of your gown.

Necklace designs that match your build

via Best for Bride

When you choose your necklace, it should not only match your dress, but also look suitable for you. Lower the dress neckline, longer your necklace should be. Opt for rhinestones or colored gemstone necklaces for a polished, sophisticated effect, or a strings of pearls for a soft, feminine touch. Pearls are a perfect match for delicate lace dresses and vintage styles, while modern dresses would benefit from contemporary necklaces, pendants and statement jewellery.

If you have well toned shoulders and collar bones, don’t hide it behind a thick choker. Accentuate it with a long chain. A long necklace also works if you have a thick neck and you want to elongate your neck and torso. Don’t wait till your wedding day to try on your wedding jewellery with your dress. Make sure you are comfortable with how you look, and you are bound to be a beautiful bride.
