Choosing your Bridal Accessories

Publié par Ashlee Kalantarian le

Choosing the right bridal accessories is an important and exciting part of completing your wedding day look. Here are some tips to help you make the best choices:
  1. CONSIDER YOUR DRESS: Your bridal accessories should complement your wedding dress, not overpower it. If your dress is intricate and heavily embellished, opt for simpler bridal accessories such as the Aubrey Pearl Headbands or Sia Drop earrings. If your dress is more minimalistic, you can go for more elaborate accessories to add interest such as pieces like the Priya Crown or Nala Headband.
  1. STICK TO YOUR STYLE: Your bridal accessories should reflect your personal style. Whether you're classic, bohemian, modern, or vintage-inspired, choose pieces that resonate with your overall aesthetic. We have pieces to suit every theme, from bohemian pieces like the Amelia Headband to more traditional or vintage-inspired designs like the Amira Pearl Crown.
  1. LESS CAN BE MORE: Don't feel pressured to wear every accessory available. Sometimes, a few well-chosen pieces can make a more impactful statement than piling on too many. We have simple pieces such as the Valencia Crown or Amira Crown which are effective when worn individually or can be stacked with other versatile pieces like the Amadi Headband or Aubrey Headband if you want a fuller yet still simple bridal look.
  1. FOCUS ON BALANCE: Balance is key when choosing accessories. If your wedding dress has a lot of detail on the bodice, consider simpler jewellery. If you have a simple gown, you can go for more elaborate jewellery to enhance the overall look. Our Priya Studs or Valencia Pearl Drop earrings are the perfect bridal earrings to most gowns, or are also great for bridesmaid jewellery and gifts.
  1. THINK ABOUT NECKLINES AND HAIRSTYLE: The neckline of your dress will determine the type of necklace you should wear. For a high neckline, skip the necklace and opt for statement earrings. If you're wearing your hair up, consider statement earrings or hair accessories. For loose hair, hairpins or combs can be a great addition, like our new Dionne Pearl Hair Pins.
  1. CONSIDER COMFORT: Remember that you'll be wearing your accessories for hours, so comfort is important. Make sure your jewellery isn't too heavy, and choose shoes that you can walk in comfortably. Pieces like the Zenni Crown or Sienna Pearl Headband are very lightweight, making them a popular choice for engagement parties, hens shows and bridal showers too. 
  1. METAL TONE: Consider the metal tone of your engagement and wedding rings when choosing your accessories. Try to match the metals for a cohesive look. We also have a large range of pearl accessories or crystal pieces like the Charlotte Pearl Headband or Sylvie Headband if these are materials you are drawn to wearing.
  1. MEANINGFUL ACCESSORIES: Incorporate accessories that have sentimental value, such as heirloom pieces or items gifted by loved ones. We can also create custom designs which can be lovely keepsakes or handed down for generations.
  1. HAIR ACCESSORIES: If you're wearing a veil, make sure your hair accessories complement it. If you're not wearing a veil, you have more freedom to play with different hairpieces. Designs such as the Sofia Pearl Crown or Lourdes Crown suit downstyles like romantic curls well, and pieces like the Crystal Charlotte Headband and Savannah Pearl Crown suit textured up-styles beautifully.
  1. TRIAL RUN: Before the big day, do a trial run of your complete bridal look, including the dress, accessories, hairstyle, and makeup. This will help you see how everything comes together and make any necessary adjustments.
  1. CONSULT PROFESSIONALS: Don't hesitate to consult with our in-house stylists for expert advice on choosing the right accessories. They can offer valuable insights based on your dress and personal style, and you can book your online styling session easily HERE.
  1. BUDGET: Set a budget for your accessories and stick to it. There are beautiful options available at various price points, so you don't need to overspend to achieve a stunning look. Don’t forget we also offer AfterPay so you don’t have to blow the budget all at once.
Remember, your bridal accessories should make you feel confident and beautiful on your special day. Take your time, consider your options, and choose pieces that make you shine. We’re always happy to help here at A'el Este xo
