Bridal accessories

When you picture your bridal accessories, do you envisage crystals and diamonds, flowers, beads and pearls, or something else entirely? Bridal accessories can include everything from your tiara to your shoes. They should complement your gown and accentuate your own beauty.

A trend growing in popularity is the addition of a belt to an otherwise plain dress. This draws the eye to the narrowest part of your waist, accentuating curves or creating them where they don't really exist. It's worth trying on both crystal and colourful ones to see if you like the effect.

Winter brides can opt for a cape, shrug, stole, or bridal jacket. These are fantastic for giving you a more modest look during your ceremony and keeping you warm while you have your outdoor photos taken. Bridal headpieces are no longer limited to tiaras and veils. The stockists in our directory of bridal accessories can provide you with beautifully crafted headpieces to suit your face and your style of dress. Have fun with your accessories but don't let them overwhelm you.

Less is definitely more when it comes to bridal accessories, so if you're in doubt, leave it off. Take the shade of your gown into consideration with your choice of metallic - yellow and rose gold look better against cream and off white, while platinum looks incredible against pure white. Go wedding shoe shopping at the end of the day when your feet are at their largest, and make comfort a priority. You don't want to hobble inelegantly down the aisle because your feet hurt!

It doesn't matter if you're a magpie or a minimalist, you'll find a vendor who has just what you want in our directory.
