Something Blue – Accessorizing Your Wedding Day

You know the old rhyme. They say you need something old, new, borrowed, and blue, but what you really need are some great accessories that make your ensemble look especially you. There’s so much emphasis on the gown, the bridesmaids’ dresses, the shoes (that no one sees!), and everything else that it’s easy to forget to accessorize.

You don’t have to go all-out with your wedding day jewelry and accessories, but you shouldn’t go without, either. Whether you’re one for tradition or not, wearing a piece of family jewelry or a borrowed necklace from an old friend can be fun and inspiring for your special day.

A lot of brides wear pearl necklaces or earrings. These are a great addition to the look. They don’t make a huge statement, but they’re delicate and traditional. Sometimes that’s all you want in an accessory. On the other hand, you might want to accent your glowing white gown with a bright blue or purple necklace. Remember that your bouquet will act as an accessory, too, though. We’re seeing larger waterfall-style bouquets all over the place for spring weddings this year, and we love them. You might want to match your necklace or earrings to your bouquet if you go this route.

Whether you choose contrasting or matching jewelry, we recommend keeping it understated. Choose either a necklace or a bangle bracelet, large chandelier earrings or a statement ring on your right hand.

As traditional and expected as you might think they are, veils have become almost optional for many brides. Instead, a lot of brides are choosing fascinators in white or contrasting colors. Consider a deep green or red one as a beautiful and unique accessory with a tiny white veil instead of a traditional veil.
