Your wedding is one of the most intense and stressful but also most beautiful days of one’s life, and a lot of blood, sweat, and even tears will be shed before this big event. It may be the most stressful moment of your life, but it will also be one of the most memorable and important moments of your life.
Not only are you marrying the love of your life, but you are also doing it with the people who mean the most to both of you, which is why this is considered one of the most beautiful and magical moments in life. Your marriage should be a special time of your life, and you should do whatever you want as long as it isn’t hurting anyone.
But once you get the wedding dress you’ve always dreamed of, the next step is to find the right accessories to complete it. This is where our guide comes into play. So without further ado, let’s take a look at how to choose the perfect accessories for your wedding dress.
1. More doesn’t always equate to better
You don’t have to be over the top for your wedding, but if you want to be extra, then be our guest, because I personally will be the most extravagant person on my wedding day, and no one will be able to beat me to my own wedding. However, not everyone is like me, and some, if not most, people choose the path of being inconspicuous; this is an ambiance that we recommend to most people.
Because nothing beats simplicity, especially when it comes to weddings. To quote the icon herself, Coco Chanel:
“Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take off an accessory”.
This is especially true for your special day, and you will already have four extra things on you if you choose to go the traditional route. The famous recipe for the perfect wedding is something old, something new; something borrowed, something blue, and a penny in your shoe.
All of my best friends have followed this recipe and had a happy marriage, it’s one of those old-timey traditions that I love, and things make your wedding more personal because not everyone will have the same five things. So being inconspicuous is the name of the game when it comes to weddings.
2. Match your metal
Mixing and matching is fun at a random party or a night out with your best girlfriends and perfectly acceptable at a bachelorette party, but it’s a big no-no when it comes to your wedding day. Choose metal and stick to it. If your dress is a little off-white or ivory, opt for gold, as it will bring out the color of the dress.
If you choose to go the traditional route and have an all-white dress, pair it with silver or pearls, as gold does not go well with the color white. The metal you choose should not contrast your dress but complement it and give it a more regal look.
3. Stay comfortable
A traditional wedding is usually long, and you are already wearing a long dress, so there is no need to wear heels. Not only might you trip with your heels as you walk down the aisle, but it’s also very uncomfortable to stand with them for long. Choosing a perfect pair of comfortable sneakers is the way to go and will be the most comfortable thing you can wear on your wedding day. You will thank me for this last point because it will save your life.
Plus, it doesn’t detract from the aesthetics because no one will see your sneakers if you’re wearing a traditional floor-length dress; even if you opt for a more modern aesthetic, sneakers are a sneaky way to speak loudly. They’re a piece that makes the whole conversation, and we love them for it. Remember, you’ll be standing for a long time, and then you’ll have to dance on the dance floor, so save the sneakers for the wedding and the heels for the dance floor.
