While the main focus when finding the perfect wedding dress might be finding the gown of your dreams, your outfit isn’t complete unless you have the accessories to match. Combined, your gown, shoes and accessories can help tell the story of who you are as a bride. Chosen well, these are the aspects that help you wear your dress in a way only you can. Anyone could have picked the dress you chose, but you need the right accessories to complement and complete your wedding look. If you’ve recently said yes to the dress, it’s time to start thinking about what you’ll pair it with to create the Pinterest wedding you’ve always dreamed of.
The bride’s footwear is one of the most significant bridal accessories to contemplate. There’s something for everyone, whether you prefer sky-high heels or comfy flats, and you could also benefit from picking a custom pair that fits you like a glove.
If you’re getting married outdoors, then perhaps forgo the stilettos in favour of sensible wedges that won’t sink into the ground as you make your way about on your wedding day. Many brides also use their shoes to add a splash of colour to their wedding day ensemble. Ideally, pick the perfect wedding shoes with the dress you’ll wear in order to ensure everything matches.
Another important consideration is your nails. After slipping on your engagement ring on your finger, you’ll more than likely want to show off your new shiny, bedazzling ring. Indeed, your hands will also be the centre of attention during the exchange of rings when you take your wedding vows. The artisans at your chosen nail salon will be able to advise on the type of manicure and pedicure to suit your wedding needs, with endless options including:
- Metallic accents.
- Sparkling designs.
- French manicure.
- Bold, bright colours with catchy designs.
Be sure to get your nails done at least a day or so before the big day to keep them fresh. Some other ideas that may be fun include the following which can be organised by a nail salon that is enthusiastic about weddings:
- A bridal shower with your bridesmaids and close friends that revolves around nails, for example an afternoon of manicures and pedicures while enjoying canapes and perhaps some bubbly.
- A pampering session with your mum as a prelude to your big day, spending quality time with the most important woman in your life.
