Accesories for the Bride

Your big day has finally arrived. You have your dress, veil and what else is left?
Maybe a nice string of Pearls ( symbol of purity and innocence)? The various lengths of pearl necklaces include the dog collar, choker, princess, matinee, and opera. A dog collar is made up of several strands of pearls stacked up on the neck. A necklace that rests at the base of the throat is termed a choker. A princess-length necklace rests above the bustline. A matinee-length necklace rests below the bustline. An opera length necklace falls around the waistline. A lavaliere is a pendant on a necklace.

Even a pair of Diamond Stud Earrings (Suggest Elegance). A button earring accentuates a round face. A dangle earring widens a narrow face. A squared earring adds interest to a long face. What ever you decide make sure it enhances your gown and not take away from it.

If you are not into jewelry, try adding a Hair Comb. Buy combs that are decorated with the same details as your dress, such as pearls, rhinestones or crystals. If you think this looks too "matchy matchy," buy accessories that are similar but not identical in style to your dress.

Wraps or Shrugs are great if you are wearing a strapless or bare shouldered dress, you might want to cover up in the house of worship. For warm weather look for wraps made in organza, silk, lace, or a light cashmere. For cold weather you can go with satin, velvet, cashmere, or white fur.

Nothing is worse than seeing a Bride that has way too much going on. Just remember, it is your day and it is all about you!
