  • For Your Head

First, you need a veil, which is a traditional wedding charm. You can also have a tiara because, on your wedding day, you’re truly a princess.  Or if you’d like you can utilize a garland if this fits better with your wedding theme or fashion, and then hair pieces like bridal combs.


  • Jewelry

You’ll need a necklace and gems are a good idea here. Beautiful earrings that complement your looks are necessary too.  You could also add bracelets and brooches to perfect your ageless elegance.


  • For Your Feet

Your shoes are important. They should be classy and comfortable. You should try walking around in them before your wedding day so you’ll feel comfortable in them when your big day arrives. We don’t want you to fall while walking down the aisle now, do we?


  • For Your Body

The dress is, of course, important and should be comfortable. Take all of your fittings seriously. Gloves will help you achieve a classy, sophisticated look; bridal lingerie will make you feel and look beautiful both inside and out. Use stockings or you can go for tights instead, but they must complement your dress. Bridal handkerchiefs are necessary too.


  • Others

A handbag to carry your make up items, wipes, breath mints, pins, hair clips, and other things you fancy.  Anything you feel like might need on that day, sometimes, a shawl is necessary too. If you’re holding your wedding during a windy season or in an enclosed air-conditioned venue, wear a shawl.  Have you ever thought about using a sash at your wedding? A sash is a great fashion choice and could add glamour to your beautiful ceremony. You can match your sash to the color of your bridesmaid’s dresses to create an impressive, beautiful, and uniform effect. If you are more traditional, you may want to bring in something old, borrowed or blue.
