The bride is the star of the wedding; it’s her moment to shine. She deserves to look and feel like a princess on her big day. However, with various apps that allow you to “dress up” this celebrity or that one, it seems as though people have forgotten what makes a bride special. The traditional white dress, along with other elements of finesse, is crucial for giving the right impression at all times. Here are our top seven must-have items for your big day:
Flattering Veil or Tiara
This is an important part of making any bride feel pretty on her wedding day. Even if she chooses not to wear it during most of the ceremony, letting her put it on in the final minutes will help make a lasting impression on her groom. You could have some made by a professional or go with one of the “buy-it-off-the-rack” varieties, but whatever you do, make sure that she feels like royalty.
No bride is complete without jewelry. The world is full of tinkling pieces of metal and shiny stones that are perfect for adding class to even the most basic dresses. Plus, if your big day gets chilly, nothing warms up more than diamonds around your neck. That’s why it doesn’t matter whether you borrow them from family members or choose mass-produced trinkets; all that matters is that you find a way to make them look good.
Classy, White Dress
Haven’t we said it a million times? White is the best color for a bridal gown. Not only does it symbolize virginal purity and make you stand out from any other guest in the room, but it also allows you to blend in with all of your hubby’s fellow soldiers when you dance at the reception. Plus, let’s face it: no one can resist an elegant gown that makes its wearer looks like she just stepped off of some fashion runway! There are so many varieties available these days that you should never have any problem finding one in your size. Just try not to trip on your train walking up the aisle!
When it comes to shoes, you want something that will make you feel good and look even better. That’s why we recommend going for a pair of classic high heels in a neutral tone like black or brown. Not only will they elongate your legs and give you some extra height, but they’ll also match any outfit you might wear later on in the day (or night). Plus, you’ll love the feeling of being able to “strut your stuff” in front of all your guests.
This is one of the essential elements for making your big day perfect for both you and anyone watching. The bouquet will tell everyone what sort of bride you are, whether you’ll be caring or wild, fun or serious, traditional or modern. Just make sure to choose a bouquet that feels right for the time of year your wedding is taking place.
For example, if you’re getting married in winter, then go for something with reds, purples, and burgundies to give off that “winter wonderland” vibe. On the other hand, if you’re planning to get married in the summer, lighter tones like oranges, yellows, and greens will give off that “sunshine” feeling.
One of the most important items is the garter for the bride’s accessories. This is because it not only serves as a beautiful piece of decoration, but it also doubles as a keepsake that can be worn again on future anniversaries. There are different garters available these days, and it’s easy to find one that will suit your style and personality. Just make sure to choose one that’s both comfortable and stylish so you’ll be able to wear it with pride on your big day.
When it comes to nails for your wedding day, you have many options. You can go with a classic French manicure or try something more daring like a bright red or deep purple. You could also choose to have your nails done in a metallic shade or go with a simple nude polish if you want them to blend in with your gown. Just make sure to have them done a few days before the wedding so you can avoid any nasty chips or smudges on the big day.
Now that you have all the essentials, it’s time to start planning the smaller details of your wedding. Just relax and take it one step at a time; before you know it, your big day will be here.
