Choosing the Right Bridal Accessories
May 23, 2014
By Grace at Bella Bridal
Your dress is the focal point of your bridal outfit, but it's the accessories that pull it all together. Bella Bridal and Heirlooms offers a wide range of bridal accessories, from wedding gloves to sashes to headpieces. Choose accents that fit in with the style and color of your dress.
Almost like a belt, bridal sashes come in many styles that can include crystals and satin flowers to enhance the elegance of your wedding dress. Many brides choose sashes to flatter their waists and give their dress a more vintage silhouette, or to add a touch of chic detail to a simple dress.
If you're having an autumn or winter wedding, you might want to wear a bridal wrap to keep warm before and after the ceremony. Bridal wraps come in several styles and fabrics making it easy to find a style that matches your theme. Decide whether or not you're going to wear a traditional or contemporary veil. Bridal veils offer the gracefulness of a single layer or the mystique of a double layer. Bridal veils can come in many colors, so make sure to choose one that compliments your dress.
Selecting a Wedding Veil
Traditional wedding veils are typically layered. They're worn from the midpoint of the head. The netting drapes over the back of the hair, trailing to the shoulder or even cascading to the floor. For the classic look on your wedding day, a layer of the longer veil is folded over the front to slightly cover the bride's face. The bride's father traditionally lifts the veil over her head at the front of the wedding altar when he gives her away. More modern veils are a simple net attached to a bridal headpiece that covers the face or can drape to the back or side. Shorter veils can still be turned over the top of the headpiece if you choose. Select the length and style of the veil to coordinate with your dress length, sash, train and gloves. Some of our bridal headpieces offer a more modern look, with netting attached to a headband or a bridal hair comb. These are ideal for shorter hair or an up-do. Veils and bridal headpieces can be worn with any hair length.
