Jewelry

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.

Shoes

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.

The Traditional Wedding

t_1400780311_weddingIf you are having a traditional wedding, you are going to need some traditional wedding bridal accessories. Because a traditional wedding takes place in a church or some other place of worship, you will need some thing other than what you need if you were having a civil partnership or outside wedding. The most important bridal accessory for a church wedding is the unity candle. This is a ceremonial candle that is equally lit by the bride and the groom as they are pronounced husband and wife. The candle is a symbol of uniting as one. 

The traditional wedding ceremonies do have a theme to them, but it is unlike a themed wedding such as a beach theme or a garden theme. Many faiths believe that the union of 1315f886f5dcd2c8ea647816cce8c63ea man and a woman is a bond that cannot be broken. It is a sign of purity and commitment, which has resulted in a religious theme wedding. Your bridal accessories may include a white wedding gown, white shoes, and a veil in one of four different lengths with a beautiful bouquet of fresh flowers. The flowers represent purity and tranquillity. It is easy to see why the majority of brides choose the calla lily for a bouquet as well as the decoration for the wedding cake. 

Bridal accessories for the church also might include votive candle cups lining the isle as the bride walks down to meet your intended. These are normally white candles attached to the pews in the church. Many churches have these accessories already and do supply them if you desire them for you’re special day. The unity candle for the most part, is customized with a picture of the bride and groom or with their names. The candles also might have a prayer or a poem that the bride chooses.

This is where the flower girl and pageboy walk in front of the bride with the flower girl dropping rose petals. These are two things you will add to your bridal accessories list as things you will need. The traditional wedding will last longer than an outdoors wedding, but is just as beautiful and memorable. After the ceremony, you will take the church photos and leave for the reception. The reception venue should be decorated the night before or on the morning of the wedding.

When you hold a traditional wedding, your wedding favors could include silver name placeholders in the shape of a bell or other linked object, picture frame or a something else that compliments your wedding themes. Your traditional wedding bridal accessories are going to be as elegant or as relaxed as you want your day to be. One last thing you will want to include in your bridal accessories is the small token of love you give to your husband at the dinner. This is not the case for all traditional weddings but has been done for some
