There are so many things on a bride’s mind that it’s pretty hard just to imagine how they can juggle all those responsibilities and keep their sanity at the same time. But when it comes down to what’s more important, few things will actually top the wedding dress. Some agree that even the groom might have a hard time in topping off the bride’s wedding dress when it comes to wedding priorities. And if that’s the case, we all know what the close second will be: bridal jewelry.
It’s important to accessorize properly so that the jewelry you use matches and compliments the dress you’re wearing rather than take away from it or overshadow it. It’s not that easy to pick out the best accessories for your dress but it’s not rocket science either. You just got to make sure that you’re paying attention to a few important details. Here is what you need to keep in mind for when you are accessorizing your wedding dress:
Take care of it ahead of time and not in the last minute
It’s very important that you make time to get this sorted out with plenty of time to spare and you don’t just throw it on the to-do list last second. There are a million different things that can change or go wrong and you need to make sure that you have a backup plan. The pieces you might have loved to wear might sell out for instance, and you’ll be left completely bummed out.
Make the most out of it
Restraint is an invaluable trait and it will benefit you greatly in life to have it. However, this is a wedding we’re talking about and it’s definitely not the right moment to hold back. Go big with the wedding dress accessories and make sure that people are going to notice them. Make sure that they don’t overshadow the actual dress, but anything below that level is fair game.
Don’t overdo it
This might seem a little bit contradictory with what was said just previously, but going big doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to throw on a ton of accessories. They just need to be powerful in impact. Other than that you should actually try to keep it fairly light in terms of how many accessories you use, following the principle “less is more”.
Think about your bridesmaids
Don’t just think about how you are going to accessorize your dress. Think about your bridesmaids as well and how they will look. Keep in mind that however they look will also impact how you look since their outfits will compliment and complete the frame in which your dress is the centerpiece. It’s important for them to have accessories that not only match their dresses but also match your outfit.
