Accessory Tips For The Bride & Groom
Accessories are an essential part of an outfit for both men and women and without it, an outfit can look plain. The ultimate outfit is a bridal one and enhancing a wedding dress requires beautiful accessories! Getting a wedding organised is a complex business and there are countless things you need to prepare for the day. Wedding accessories are one of those essentials that are often overlooked but it’s important to follow a list – lists are your saviour when organising an event, never mind your wedding day! Grooms, brides and the wedding party all require some glitz and glamour on a day full of glitter so follow the lists as best you can and get yourselves organised.
Don’t forget the larger accessories like the stationery and paperwork you’ll need. Place cards and table menus all need to be included under the banner of accessories, but focusing on outfits is sometimes more important to worry about, considering naked weddings aren’t normally a thing!
The Groom is often overlooked as although he’s an essential part of a wedding day. It can be surprising that a groom should need certain accessories. Make sure that your groom has the following:
- A handkerchief in his pocket. This is to make his outfit, but just in case you have an emotional one at the front of the altar, you want him to use something other than his sleeve!
- Cufflinks. Personalised cufflinks are often a gift from the best man but if not, make sure you include these in your list of things to buy.
- For a gift for your groom, how about a watch to make sure he arrives on time?
The Bride is obviously the most important guest of the wedding next to the groom. Everything top to toe is important for the brides accessories but the most important include:
- Jewellery. Not just the wedding rings, but the necklace, bracelet and earrings that are chosen should be remembered. They should also be more than costume jewellery. If the bride is allergic to most jewellery you can use surgical earrings that don’t contain nickel!
- Going with something old, new, borrowed and blue can include the mother of the bride’s wedding jewellery, the dress, a tiara and a blue garter.
- A small, bridal handbag to match the dress and veil is also an essential. Just because you’re the bride doesn’t mean you won’t need to have some essentials handy so ask a bridesmaid to hold the bag for you while you do the vows, and get it back afterward.
Bridal accessories can complete an outfit and also the outfits of the grooms and the wedding party. It’s a day of excitement and usually is covered in glitter so why shouldn’t you be? Enjoying your wedding day is the most important thing about it and if ‘The Dress’ needs some sequins and sparkles you should make it happen. It’s a dream day; the dream outfit matters.
