Accessorizing a wedding dress is not always easy. Which comes first, the gown or the jewelry? What kind of jewelry should I be wearing? Is it possible to over accessorize?
If you’ve asked any of these questions, you’re in the right place. Our very own best selling author, Naryi, has put together a very helpful video all about accessorizing for your special day! The very first point she makes is that your accessories must compliment the overall look and that it is imperative that the accessories do not become the main focus. The best time to accessorize is once you have found your perfect gown! Nayri also suggests to avoid accessorizing with every gown you try on because it wastes time and energy that could be going towards finding your dress!
The first key accessory is a VEIL! Although you may think you do not want to wear a veil on your wedding day, you should always try some on. Many brides look back on their wedding day and wish they had worn one because of the extra elegance is gives the dress.
The next key accessory Nayri talks about is EARRINGS! Your wedding day is not the time to aim for understated, minimalistic pieces. You want to go a little bigger and possibly out of your comfort zone because in photos, and from afar, you will want to see them!
The third key accessory is a HEADPIECE! A headpiece is a great addition to your wedding day look because it brings attention up to you and adds and extra bit of sparkle to your hairstyle. Nayri suggests going with a bare-neck unless there is a special family heirloom or gift that is to be worn around the neck.
The finall key accessory for your big day is a BRACELET! A bracelet is a beautiful touch, especially when cutting the cake and drinking champagne. The bracelet should be worn on the right wrist since your left hand is occupied with a gorgeous ring!It will look absolutely amazing in photos and give a wonderful sense of balance!
