Bridal Accessories

Dec 7, 2007
Whether you are a high maintenance bride who needs to advertise your new bride status with fancy clothing to wear on your honeymoon or a simple type looking to put the nice accent on your bridesmaids' dresses, bridal accessories will have a factor in your wedding plans.

While bridal accessories do not get much of the attention that say venue, catering, photography do when it comes to wedding planning, many brides pride themselves in their work with finding the right wedding accessories for their special day. For many, finding the right jewelry to match the bridesmaids dresses can become a very involved issue. But it does not have to be.

Bridal accessories are sold by a variety of merchants and online retailers. These items are usually easier online than, say, a dress or a bridesmaids outfits, things that need to be evaluated by how they look on the wedding party and how they blend into the occasion. While blending into the outfit or occasion is also necessary for any bridal accessories, these are items that are usually small, and complement without overtaking a situation. They are not the focal point of the wedding.

Bridal accessory retailers tend to offer other products as well, like invitations and ring pillows. These things and reception decorating touches like personalized match books and other touches like that can mostly be found by any bridal accessory shops as well.

Bridal accessories, particularly the ones that deal directly with what the wedding party should wear, can be quite reflective of the bride's personality. If you are a bridesmaid and you are being force to wear big or loud earrings, the bride may have her eyes on something like that as well. Same goes for more conservative choices as well.

Depending on how high profile a person's wedding is may also depend on how much accessory attention may be needed. For a smaller wedding, like a back yard affair, the bride may not even see it necessary for the bridesmaids to wear any particular accessories.

One type of accessory that has caught on in popularity of late is string-drawn bridal bags, or purses. These bags can be worn by the bridesmaids and even the bride after the wedding. But perhaps some of the most important bridal accessories are the printed champagne glasses and instant cameras left on each reception table. The glasses, or flutes, can become wonderful keepsakes. But the cameras, which can be used to catch the most candid of moments at the wedding, can be the greatest treasure. Many times, after these pictures are developed, a whole other side to the wedding is found that could not be captured by the photographer.

No matter what bridal accessory you may focus on, remember to enjoy the process of adding your own unique touches to your special day. Wedding accessories can add that perfect touch to your wedding day. Select the accessories that match your theme wedding and you will be sure to impress your wedding reception guests.
