Your wedding is one of the most stressful yet beautiful days of your life, and a lot of blood, sweat, and tears are shed prior to the big awaited event. It might be the most stressful time of your life, but it will also be one of the most memorable and significant times of your life. You are not only marrying the love of your life, but you are doing so with the people that matter the most for both of you, and this is why it is considered one of the most beautiful and magical times in one’s life. But one’s you’ve got the wedding gown that you’ve always dreamt of, the next step is to find accessories that will complement it. This is where our guide comes in, so without any further ado, let’s see how to choose the perfect accessories for your wedding gown.

Less is more


You don’t have to be extra for your wedding, but if you want to be extra, then be my guest because I will personally be the most extra person on my wedding day, and no one will be able to upstage me at my own wedding. However, not everyone is like me, and most people choose the more demure route; this is a vibe that we tell most people to choose. Because nothing bets simplicity, especially when it comes to weddings. To quote Coco Chanel:

“Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and remove one accessory.”


This is especially true for your big day, and you’ll already have four additional things on you if you are going the traditional route. The famous old recipe for the perfect wedding is something old, something new; something borrowed something blue and a sixpence in your shoe. All my best friends followed this and had a happy wedding, it is one of those traditions that I love, and things make your marriage more personal because not everyone will have the same 5 things. So, being understated is the name of the game when it comes to weddings.

Match your metal


Mix and matching is all fun and games for a random party or a night out with your best friends and is completely acceptable for a bachelorette party but is a big no-no when it comes to the wedding day. Pick a metal and stick to it. If your dress is a bit off-white or ivory, then opt for gold as it will make the color of the dress pop. If you are going for the traditional route and getting a completely white dress, then you ought to pair it with silver or pearls because gold will clash with the white hue. The metal you choose shouldn’t clash with your dress but should complement it and make the dress look more regal.

Keep it comfy


A wedding is long, and you are already wearing a floor-length gown, so there is no need to wear heels. Not only can you trip with your heels while walking down the aisle, but it is also very uncomfortable to stand in them for a long period of time. Choosing a perfect pair of comfy 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 latter because it is a real lifesaver. It is also not taking anything away from the aesthetics because no one will see your sneak if you are wearing a traditional floor-length gown; even if you are going for a more modern aesthetics, then sneaker is a sneaky way to speak volume. It is a statement piece that does all the talking, and we love it for that. Don’t forget you will be standing for an extended period of time and you’ll have to rock that dance floor afterward, so keep the sneakers for the wedding and the heels for the dance floor.
