How to Accessorise on your Wedding Day

How To Accessorise on Your Wedding Day

You’ve found the one and you’ve found the dress, now it’s time to accessorise for your special day. As always accessories can make or break an outfit, and this is no exception on your wedding day.

Whilst accessories are an important element of your wedding day style, let’s face it it’s all about the dress. Do not go over the top with jewellery or other accessories, instead chose subtle, elegant pieces which will enhance your dress and most importantly you!

Always choose your dress and your hairstyle before your accessories so that they are in keeping with your style on the day. Our top tip is to make sure that whatever you wear, it’s comfortable and makes you not only look good but feel good too.

Head pieces

Veils and head pieces such as tiaras can add an extra touch of classic elegance to your wedding day look.

It is better to select a headpiece before you have decided on how you would like to wear your hair on the day so that your hair can be styled to perfectly encompass your tiara or head piece.

Veils are an elegant and classic accessory which come in a huge variety of styles and lengths to compliment your wedding dress and make you feel as pretty as a Princess.

Tip! Try to keep head pieces and veils in keeping with the style of your dress and always make sure that they are comfortable to wear.

Compliment the neckline of your dress

If you are thinking about wearing a necklace be sure to check that it sits well against the neckline of your dress.

Sweetheart and strapless dresses are often best suited to simple necklaces like a medium length pearl necklace.

Alternatively, chandelier earrings against a bare neck are a lovely way to accessorise against the clean lines of a strapless dress.

Simple string necklaces typically compliment a V neck dress line without looking over the top or too heavy.

Mix old with new

Something old, something new: Weddings are a wonderful opportunity to mix traditional pieces with contemporary style, particularly in your accessories.

Something Old New Borrowed Blue

Something borrowed: Many brides see their wedding as an opportunity to wear family pieces alongside newer accessories. Many bridal pieces have a timeless appeal which can look just as good today as they did on our mothers or grandmothers on their special day.

Something blue: Why not incorporate your ‘something blue’ into your wedding day jewellery? A blue topaz ring or a touch of sapphire is an elegant way to add colour and sparkle to your wedding day look.


Pearls are a popular choice as wedding jewellery and have traditionally been associated with the theme of love and weddings. The natural lustre and creamy tones of pearls often sit beautifully against the white and cream tones of traditional wedding dresses.

 Many dresses have pearls beaded and sewn into them so pearl jewellery is the natural choice for these styles of dresses.

Whether it be a pearl necklace or subtle pearl earrings, pearls are a classically feminine and timeless bridal accessory.

Match metals to your dress

Whilst it is entirely up to you to decide what jewellery is best for you on your wedding day some metals can complement and enhance your dress depending on colour. Ivory or champagne toned dresses tend to look best with Gold accessories whilst white lends itself to Silver or Platinum jewellery and pink sits pretty against Rose Gold.
