Our Top Tips for Choosing the Perfect Bridal Accessories!
When it comes to choosing the perfect bridal accessories to complete your wedding day look, we recommend keeping the following tips in mind:
- Your bridal accessories should be used to complement your dress, so we recommend choosing your wedding gown first. This will allow you to consider the colour and style of your dress and choose the right accessories to match. You can check out some of our favourite Australian wedding dress designers to find some inspiration!
- If you’re still unsure about which direction to take for your overall wedding day look, our ‘What’s your bridal style?’ quiz might be a great place to start! This will help you narrow down your options to define a style that reflects your own personality and preferences.
- If you’re opting for a custom or bespoke piece, make sure you double check with your designer on the timeframe required to place your order. Keep in mind that they may have to source or ship materials, so the more notice, the better!
- Don’t forget about your bridal party, too! A set of earrings, a sweet bracelet or a beautiful robe can be a great bridesmaid gift idea to say thank you to your awesome crew.
