Fashion Darling….

Oh, in the humdrum of all the white dresses in the world, we lose who the bride truly is. Yes, there is only one bride at the wedding, but what makes her stand out? We should show our individuality, our personality, our chance to show our style and have some fun.  Here are some ideas that you can implement in your bridal wear.  Just please, don’t over accessorize.

1. Wear different color shoes. It may not be traditional, but you can have your personality amidst all the white (or ivory). Have fun, as planning your wedding is so stressful enough.  Think about wearing your favorite color shoe or a combination of yours and his favorite colors.  Why not try a leopard print or some rock ‘n studs? If you don’t want to be that extreme you can attach a shoe jewel in your special color with your white shoe.

2. Stand out with your jewelry.  Chunky jewelry, jewelry with different colored gemstones, use of other materials such as seashells, and fabric….all good!  Just make sure you don’t do too much.  For example, you can do 1 chunky bracelet with subtle earings.  You can do a chunky necklace if you have a simple dress, no earrings.  You can do big earrings with turquoise stones.  The possibilities, as they say, are endless.

3. Personality can stand out with a shawl or a bolero.  You can use a different color shawl for your personality.  You can use faux fur.  You can also have a shawl personalized with your initials embroidered somewhere on it.  Boleros are also beautiful, you don’t have to go extreme with color, but you can use lace to create your style.  Make it special as it’s going to be a keepsake for your child(ren).

4. Use hair jewelry or tiara/ hair comb.  There are also headbands, hair vines, and ribbon. There are many and plenty of options available.  Jeweled pins, elaborate tiara’s and combs, hair vines, give that subtle sparkle.  More trendy and fashionable new ways to have your hair are with a headband (decorated) and use of ribbon (satin, velvet, or lace).

5. Accessorize with a flowers in your hair. Go bold with a big red rose or a black one for more drama. For a more classy look, pin a big gardenia or orchid.  You can also be soft and whispy by pinning smaller flowers all over your hair.  Silk or organza flowers will last through heat and are not at fragile as real flowers.  Real flowers have tendencies to look withered and change colors throughout the day.

6. Try using feathers.  Let’s take a que from SJP in Sex and the City.  I don’t know if you want to go  that bold, but want to try that style, you should do feathers in white, cream, and pale pinks.  This would also be very fashionable if you had a peacock themed wedding.

7. You can enhance your style with your birdcage or traditional veil.  Birdcage veils are still considered contemporary, but they truly are an old classic.  Just a little in what we call traditional, I still don’t see a lot of brides taking the chance with this.  Maybe there’s a lot of dresses out there that doesn’t match the birdcage veil, I get it.  Here’s another idea I haven’t seen any brides do….dye your veil or embellish it.  It’ll make you feel like those model brides on the runway.

8. You can also accessorize your bouquet.  Easy and subtle.  There are options out there to B-dazzle your bouquet.  There are crystals you can stick in your flowers.  You can use a jeweled bouquet holder.  You can use long strands of satin ribbons (to the ground).  you can also place a keepsake jewelry in your bouquet as your memory piece.

9. You have a brooch you would like to use.  Once popular in the 1950’s, as I’ve seen in pictures, they are making a comeback like the birdcage veils.  A simple dress with an elaborate brooch.  Just don’t over accessorize with all the earrings, necklace, bracelets, hairpiece….all at once.  You can handle this one, and it’s classy too.

10. Add color with a belt.  The “wow” factor.  You want to throw in that color and make a statement too.  There are different styles you can have your belt.  There are waistbands, short bows, and longer ties that reach the ground.  You can also do a combo with a brooch.
