You have found your dream dress and are now faced with the next difficult choice – which bridal accessory to choose? Some brides prefer a clean and simple look with a wedding dress and possibly a veil. But you can also choose to supplement it with bridal accessories which will compliment the overall look of your dress and you as a bride.
If you choose to accessorise you dress, then remember that “less is more” – bridal accessories should underpin your personal style and not draw attention away from you and your dress.

Jewellery is a natural choice as bridal accessory, but remember that if your dress has many details, blonds, embroidery and pearls, then go for jewellery that matches the style and leave out for instance the necklace. Your jewellery should compliment and not outshine your dress. If you choose a simple and feminine dress, you can easily amp up your jewellery and choose a big set of earrings.
A bridal purse is not a poor choice of bridal accessory either. You can bring a little make-up to refreshen your wedding make-up, perfume and a few key words for your speech to the groom. Go for a small elegant purse or clutch with room for nothing but the essentials.
With hairpieces, the same rules apply as to jewellery, make sure that they complement the dress and underpin your personal style. Match the hairpiece with the jewellery so things do not become too fussy and seek advice from your hairdresser about which hairpieces that match you bridal hairstyle the best.
