6 Accessories You Can Consider to Complete and Elevate Your Bridal Look!

From the bride’s wedding shoes to her hair and make-up team, every little element is carefully planned to ensure the bride is positively glowing on the big day. There is no detail too small when it comes to the bridal look, and one trivial detail that is often underestimated is her accessories. Although accessories are at times small in size, when they are truly one-of-a-kind and of special significance, they can have the power to make big, lasting impressions. We’ve already discussed chic bridal masks here, so now let’s talk about a bride’s more timeless accessories. Check out how these brides stood out from the rest by making unique and fashion-forward choices for their ensemble!

6 Accessories You Can Consider to Complete and Elevate Your Bridal Look!

A Chic Capelet for Subtle Elegance

Whether the capelet is detachable for an easy outfit change or it’s seamlessly incorporated into your wedding gown, there’s just something so classy about a cape! The way a cape drapes the bride’s shoulders and gracefully moves when she turns makes for beautiful photographs. Opting for a sheer fabric is another excellent choice, especially when there are other details of the wedding gown you’d like to showcase. Make it even more fashionable by adorning the cape with beadwork, faux feathers, or whatever your preferred kind of embroidery.

An Alternative to Tiaras that are Still Fit for a Queen

While it’s far from unconventional to don a tiara on your wedding day, you can still make an impression when you walk down the aisle wearing a headpiece adorned with uncommon jewels or designed in unconventional fashion. A crown is not the only way to look like royalty—these embellished headpieces command just as much attention and require the same grace when worn on the bride’s head.

A Delicate Umbrella for Added Romance

This accessory is gaining popularity with Filipiniana-themed weddings and we definitely see why. Aside from protecting your skin (and your make-up!) from the sun, umbrellas can add a touch of femininity and romance to the bride’s look and the overall ambience. While lace appliqué and traditional paper umbrellas go really well with a piña gown, they also come in other colors and materials to match any fabric.

Fun Hats for You and Your Crew

Would you prefer a summer hat, a beret, or a fedora? Whichever one you choose, it will surely make a statement. Take a page from the royal weddings of England for ideas on how to fashion a hat for formal affairs. For a more a casual affair, pick out something playful to make for fun and memorable photos. You can also invite the whole gang to join in on the fun or even take it a step further and provide some shade to all your guests.

Detachable Sleeves to Transform Your Look

Another instant way to change up your look is with the help of detachable sleeves. Shed the sleeves when you go from-day-to-night from the ceremony to the reception or strap them on if your reception venue is known for its cool breeze. Guests are sure to compliment the practical choice as compared to two separates you may never wear again! We especially love the reveal when your guests realize how different the gown looks with only one adjustment.
