A Hipster Wedding
By NICK JOHNSON
Just finding the right wedding dress for yourself won’t make you look stunning. It is equally important to make your bridal dress adorable with the right accessories. Brooches, earrings, shoes, oversized flowers, bows and jewelries are just some of the accessories important to complete your hipster bridal wear.
Styling your wedding dresses is not just a one- off option. There are numerous ways to accessorize your wedding gowns. Your overall styling can be traditional or classic, sleek and chick, retro or vintage, hippy or hipster cool and so on. Hence a variety of options are available to style your wedding dress. Some of the basic accessories that need consideration include corsages, fashion statement shoes, brooches, clutch bags, headbands, feather extensions, chandelier earrings and other forms of jewelries.
Corsages are a good substitute for a bouquet. You can decorate it with bright colors and attach it to your skirt, strap or even in your hair. Another accessory which is quite essential in enhancing your appearance is statement shoes. Allowing your shoes to peep from your bridal gown can be a cheeky and fun accessory. Although, it is necessary to make sure that you are comfortable in your shoes. A wobbly walk will all but severe your style statement.
Brooches are another trendy accessory, which can be a versatile add- on to your wedding dress. They can be attached to your shirt, dress- strap or can be pinned in your hair. They are most attractive when in beautiful and bright colors. Brooches can make an ideal way to accessorize the bridesmaid’s wedding dress. They can also be given as gifts for wedding.
Another make or break style statement is clutch bags. A wedding dress is incomplete, unless accompanied with a perfectly matching clutch. You can mix up other accessories with your clutch to make it all the more attractive. A clutch brightened with a brooch or a beautiful corsage can be the talk of the evening.
Headbands are a lovely way of enhancing your hairstyle. It can also be a cheaper substitute to a tiara or a veil. Another way of styling your hair is the use of feather extensions. Long feathers can be weaved in your hair to augment their beauty.
Besides these, jewelries are one of the most important ways to accessorize your bridal dresses. Choosing the right jewelry depends upon several factors like your personal taste, style of wedding gown and the wedding theme. A long pendant necklace, thick bangles, chandelier earrings or diamond earrings, pearls tied to a necklace, engagement ring are just some of the ways to add style quotient to your bridal wear with the help of jewelries.
Accessorizing your wedding dress tends to increase your budget slightly. So an alternative way out of this is to go for cheap wedding dresses. Cheap does not necessarily mean cheap in quality. A good quality cheap wedding dress accompanied with the ideal accessories can be a sure head turner. And as the saying goes, ‘you’re still not fully dressed unless you accessorize your wedding gown!’
