Accessorising on Your Big Day

Dec 28, 2020

You’ve already found your dream dress, but you’re still looking for the perfect finishing touch on your wedding day look, and are overwhelmed with the amount of options. No need to worry! We here at Pure Brides have put together a guide with some top tips for choosing the perfect pop of sparkle for your big day. Whether you’re looking for elegant jewellery, an ethereal veil, or a glitzy tiara or headpiece, we’ve got you covered girl!

 

Colour Coordinate

 

There are endless ways to accessorise, but colour coordinating is a great way to make your overall style look thoughtful and cohesive. One great way to colour coordinate is to stick to the same colour of metallics. Start by looking at your gown - if there’s any stitching or beading that’s gold or silver, you’ll want to match your accessories to those details to avoid any clashing. If your dress doesn’t have any metallic details, you can choose the metal that you favour. A good rule to follow is that cool metals like silver or white gold really pop on cool skin tones, while yellow toned golds and rose golds look best on warm skin tones. Another important thing to note: some metals pair better with certain fabric colors. Gold looks great with ivory wedding dresses, while silver metals make a pure white dress really pop.

 

 

Dare to Sparkle

 

A little pop of sparkle is a great way of making your wedding day look feel complete! When selecting your sparkle, it’s best to consider accessories that will highlight the details of your wedding dress rather than clash or distract. If your dress has a sweetheart or strapless neckline, it’s best to let the decolletage be the star of the show, and opt for a pair of earrings and forgo a necklace. If you have a wedding dress with a halter neckline, opting for a glitzy headpiece or tiara will accentuate the flirty and fun look. If your wedding dress has a plunging V-neckline, it’s simply begging to be paired with a dazzling necklace.

 

 

Stay true to you 

 

Your wedding day is not the day to compromise on your style! Stick to what makes you feel most comfortable and confident, and don’t feel obligated to over-accessorise. One way to really make your look personalised is to choose your jewellery and accessories with a meaningful gem like a birthstone if you’re a girl who favours a daring pop of color. If jewellery isn’t your thing, opt for a subtle hair piece to add a little romance to your up-do, or add a tiara for a subtle pop of sparkle. You’re the real star of the show, so stay true to your shine!
