ACCESSORIES After you put on your dress and do your hair and makeup, you may find that there’s something missing. These must-have accessories will take your look from wow to WHOA! Veil The veil is one of the most iconic pieces to creating your bridal day look. Any woman can wear a white dress, but a veil makes you undoubtedly a bride. Whether you choose a cathedral length train or a blusher over your face, add a personal touch to it with lace appliques and embroidery. Though some modern brides have chosen to forgo this accessory, we still think it’s a vital piece to creating that classic look. Undergarments You probably got some lingerie at your bachelorette party that’s perfect for your wedding night, but they’re not practical to wear throughout the wedding festivi- ties! When choosing which undergarments you’ll wear during the day, consider the features of your dress. If your gown has an exposed back, you’ll need to go bra- less or wear a sticky bra. If your bodice offers no support, consider wearing a padded strapless bra. If you decide to wear a garter, you’ll need to purchase two – one to wear and one to toss – and slip on the second one right before the garter toss. Jewelry It’s important to choose pieces that complement, but don’t detract attention from, the dress. Dangling ear- rings are great for sweetheart necklines, but you should wear studs with an illusion neck. Bracelets should be worn with strapless or halter gowns, but not with off- the-shoulder gowns. Try on different jewelry options while shopping or at a fitting to see which work best with your dress. Shoes Deciding what shoes to wear on your wedding day can be difficult. You want to find a pair that is both fashion- able and comfortable enough to dance in all night long. You may want to consider wearing heels to the cere- mony and bringing flats to dance in at your reception. We suggest breaking in your shoes about 2 weeks be- fore the wedding and adding gel or foam inserts. Don’t forget to bring your shoes with you when shopping or to a fitting to ensure that the length of your gown is just right!
