Bridal Accessories


When it comes to creating the perfect look for you on your wedding day, accessories are important. Your look for your wedding is more than your dress, and you will want to match the best accessories to create the perfect day. Here are a few things to consider when it comes to choosing wedding accessories for your big day.


You cannot overlook jewelry for your wedding. Earrings can make a wonderful accent to your ensemble and a necklace is a nice accent, especially if you have a sleeveless wedding gown. When choosing earrings, bracelets, or necklaces, consider the accents of your dress, and choose wedding jewelry that will help to highlight and bring out the intricacies of your dress.

Headpieces and Veils

Next to your dress, your headpiece and veil will be one of the most important parts of your wedding ensemble. Whether you want a comb, a headdress, or a tiara, you want a headpiece that will compliment the accents of your dress and go with your veil. The veil you choose is also important. It should match the trim of your wedding dress. You will also need to decide if you will wear the veil for the wedding only or through the reception. This will influence the type of veil you ultimately choose. You want to make sure that if you have a wedding tiara that it wears comfortably with your wedding veil as well.



No wedding ensemble is complete without the shoes. Shoes are one of the most important wedding accessories. Your shoes will help bring together your look. They will also be what you wear through your ceremony and reception. It is important that your shoes are attractive, durable, and comfortable. You will stand in them for the ceremony, you will continue to stand in them for pictures, and you will dance in them for at least the picture-worthy dances. Make sure that the shoes you select will allow for all of this function while looking stylish with your dress and other bridal accessories. Consider clips that match your wedding jewelry and wedding hair pieces to place on the toe of the shoe to help tie the ensemble together.


A Vintage Themed Wedding


While traditional weddings have their appeal, adding a theme can make your wedding something more than just your special day. It will stand out as the event of the year for your family and friends, creating memories not only for you and for your groom, but everyone invited.

While some people look to weddings themed after favorite books and movies, vintage weddings offer you the ability to turn your wedding into something special while still maintaining the tradition and formality that makes a wedding beautiful.

Planning a Vintage Wedding

A vintage wedding adds a touch of history to your special day. Whether you simply enjoy the inspiration of older times, or you want to set your wedding theme around a memory or a special “something old,” this style of wedding is unique and rich in both tradition and imagination.

Vintage Decorations

The decorations that you choose for your wedding can help set the mood and atmosphere for your special day. By shopping in second-hand and vintage stores, you can find favors, table toppers, and even serving dishes that have the time-period flare you want for your wedding. The style of wedding cake and topper will also help set the mood for your reception.

For vintage wedding ideas, consider Tabitha Emma and Erika Toth’s weddings. Tabitha Emma’s Vintage Romance wedding highlights how decorations and location help to build the vintage theme. Erika Toth wanted a Southern Vintage Wedding. In keeping with Southern tradition and hospitality, they held the wedding at the home where they met and fell in love. They opted for table decorations that were folk-inspired, casual, and warm. They also included vintage decorations such as vintage oil lamps, antique phonographs for music, and even a fun bride and groom photo stand for guests to take pictures.

Vintage Dress

What you and your wedding party wear for your special occasion will also help set the mood for your vintage wedding. Frock and Frill offers a selection of wedding dresses that will have you looking beautiful and standing out. The Penelope White Embellished Maxi Dress offers vintage style and traditional elegance. The Zelda Flapper Dress offers elegance with a short and flirty design that will have you ready to dance through your reception.

Combine these dresses with vintage wedding hairstyles and vintage wedding rings, and you have the perfect wedding ensemble.









A vintage wedding is a wonderful way to create a fun and memorable experience for you and your friend and loved ones. Decorations, flowers, cakes, even your wedding shoes, will help set the tone for your wedding. Explore some of the vintage wedding ideas and congratulations on your special day.

The Dessy Group



The Dessy Group has been providing brides with wonderful fashions since 1939. Founded as A & M Rosenthal, the founder Margot Rosenthal began with a focus on bridal dresses and headpieces. In the 1950’s the company expanded to Bridesmaid Dresses as well. Today the company partners with Alfred Sung, After Six, Lela Rose, and other top designers to offer brides the best that bridal fashion has to offer.



The Pantone Wedding

One of the challenges that all brides face when planning a wedding is color coordination. Every designer, every provider, has a different idea of what the ideal hue of blue, green, red, and pink are. While some colors are forgiving if tone is off, others can create a glaring contrast that will throw off even the most magical of days.


When the Dessy Group partnered with Pantone LLC, they offered brides the ability to easily overcome this challenge. They offer a collection of wedding planning tools, the highlight of which is the Chiplette Color Guide. This foldout color palette gives brides the ability to accurate share colors with their bridesmaids and vendors, ensuring a perfect color match. 


Elegance and Grace

What a bride really wants to know from a designer is – what dresses do you have? The After Six wedding collection offers brides elegant designs with flattering silhouettes. The collection offers classic and modernist styles. Destination 1034 even offers Grecian inspiration for brides who want to add classical flare to their weddings. The After Six collection is also affordable, offering brides on a wide range of budgets the ability to enjoy elegance. They dresses are 100% returnable, in the event that something is wrong with sizing or some other unforeseen circumstance occurs. If you are unsure about a material, you can even order a free swatch to help you match materials. Brides who prefer to handle their dresses in person and enjoy the excitement of trying on wedding gowns can also find a Dessy retailer in their area.


The selection of bridesmaids dresses is equally elegant and a perfect complement to the bride. You have elegant choices from Alfred Sung, Lela Rose, After Six, and others. Brides and their bridesmaids can use the Pantone Chiplette fan to ensure that colors match not only their preferences, but the color theme for the wedding. They can top everything off with accessories and gifts from flirty shirts, adorable flip flops – that match the wedding colors – and shoes and handbags.

What is it with Killer Heels?


imagesWhat is it with Killer Heels? Why are they so popular today and why have they been popular for so long? Killer Heels have a special place in the heart and soul of brides across the globe, but why?

To start with, a pair of high heels can instantly elongate the lines of the legs that can make the legs appear slimmer and create more elegant curves from the hip to the toe. I’ve also read that wearing high heel shoes can make the foot appear smaller than it actually is.

If you have spoilt yourself and paid a small fortune for a pair of wedding shoes to compliment, and set off you fabulous wedding dress, why not get the photographer to make a shoe montage for you. Take pictures of your killer heels on your feet, off your feet, with your favourite jeans or peeping out sexily on a stocking clad foot from an open dressing gown. You just need to let your imagination run wild.

images (4)Another great advantage to wearing, high heel shoes is that they alter the stance of the woman and this forces her boobies up and makes her derriere protrude farther out than normal. The correct pair of shoes will also help create an air of confidence due to the fact that they make the woman taller than normal and tend to attract more attention to her.

images (1)Some designer High Heeled Shoes are collectible and some are considered works of art without even having a foot to fill them. Brides all over the world keep their exotic high heel shoes for many years after their wedding day as a personal memento.

Although they may not be the most practical clothing item in the world, it really doesn’t come down to practicality. High heeled shoes are popular for reasons not related to their comfort or practicality. If you still don’t get it, then you probably never will.

Now, aren’t you ready for your next pair of Killer Heels?
