As your big day draws near, you’re probably scrambling to get everything in order, most importantly what you’ll wear. In addition to the time-honored tradition of a white wedding dress, if you plan to go the classic route, you’ll also want to seek out wedding accessories that complement and complete your overall look. We’re talking headpieces, veils, belts, clutches—oh, and garters! Needless to say, there’s quite a lot to consider when shopping for wedding accessories—the details count. So, as you continue on your search for the perfect pieces in an attempt to coordinate your wedding-day ensemble, here are some of the staples to consider.
Most brides choose to wear a wedding veil. Not only is it traditional, but it’s utterly romantic. There are endless options to choose from, so you’ll want to make sure the veil you select complements your wedding dress as well as any other accessories you choose to wear. Many include embroidered textures, beads and lace as well as satin silhouettes for that extra sparkle.

Few wedding-day accessories are more classically beautiful than an artfully designed comb clip. Consider shopping for one that matches the elements of your wedding dress. For example, if your dress features pearls and crystals, look for those same features in your hair accessory.

What you wear under your bridal gown, or while you’re getting ready on your big day, should matter! Because, after all, a bride should feel her very best throughout the entire day.

There are many to choose from, with varying shapes, sizes, and designs. Search for one that features similar aspects of your gown, be it geometric patterns, beads, and pearls or floral elements.

Even though you likely have friends and family members holding all of your necessities for you, from your phone to your lip gloss, it’s sometimes helpful to have it right by your side when you need it. That’s where a bridal clutch can come in handy. They come in all styles and designs—and some are even personalized!
Wheather you wear all of these or just a few of them, wedding accessories add the perfect final touch to your look.
