From Tip to Toes: Finding Finishing Touches

From Tip to Toes: Finding Finishing Touches

When it comes to the grand event, often the gown gets all the glory. Although a divine wedding dress demands attention, accessories are where we see the subtle touches that bring the entire ensemble together.

Starting from the top:

Whether you choose the classic floor-length cathedral or a short and chic sweeping birdcage, veils speak volumes for your overall look. Steeped in tradition, these pieces also serve as phenomenal place to incorporate heirlooms, such as repurposed lace from a loved one’s wedding gown.

For pinning waves and curls: 

Following the ceremony, you may choose to lose the veil bringing your hair front and center. From headbands to hair combs, there are a plethora of options to keep luscious locks at their best ranging from the delicately detailed to the bold and beautiful.

Small pins are also a lovely way to tie your up-do in with your bridesmaids. Spoiler alert, your stylist will most likely use a million and five bobby pins – might as well pepper a few with something pretty.

Bring on the baubles:

Yes, all eyes will be on your wedding bands, but there’s plenty of opportunity for more beauties from earrings to necklaces, and more.

You can use jewelry as a way to make a statement, add a splash of color, or pay homage to tradition. Whatever you choose, jewelry is certainly the place for added flair.

Wrapped up at the waist

Accenting your natural waist is a flattering look for any woman, so it’s no wonder you may want to draw attention to this part of your gown.

From intricate lace to bejeweled belts, sashes add distinctive design to your dress, while accentuating your figure. We often use sashes to completely transform the look of a clean or simple gown, and encourage you to toy around with a few pretties during your appointment.

You may also choose the more classic approach of a sweet silk sash tied back with a beautiful bow.

Although finding your dream dress is the main event, we want you to dream big and be creative on your accessories. Whether you use them to tie in your something new, borrowed and blue, or show off your personality, these finishing touches will help to reflect the wonder that is you on your day.

We’ll loop back on fur stoles once Fall weather rolls back around. In the interim, make an appointment to come see us for a fun-filled accessory session.
