When buying your wedding shoes, always consider your dress length and style. If you have a long train, and a lot of front length, consider heels with height. Keep it comfy too, remember, you will be standing for much of the day/evening during your wedding, ensure you are comfortable, as well as stylish.

The headpiece (veil, tiara, flower crown or hair broach) –

Bridal hair accessories over the years have become more eclectic and diverse, brides are no longer simply choosing the traditional veil. Is your gown bohemian in style and are you having a beach wedding? Why not opt for a pretty flower crown? If you are a curvaceous bride with a mermaid gown, consider a glamourous side hair brooch. And if you are a ball gown princess, a tiara is the perfect choice.

Your jewelry set, very much depends on your personal taste and gown. Knowing what type of metal will work with gown is a good way to begin choosing your wedding jewelry. For example, bright white hues, suit pearl and platinum.

When it comes to necklaces and bracelets, short-sleeved dresses should include a bracelet and halter necks should focus on pretty hair accessories. Sweetheart or strapless dresses work best with chandelier earrings and V-necks need something to adorn their neckline, such as a pendant or a choker.

Undergarments – Typically, your bridal gown will be white or ivory, therefore, it is vital that your undergarments are neutral in colour, without too many embellishments. Always think of leg cover and whether you will wear stockings, hold-ups or go bare-legged. This could affect the smooth line of your dress, too, so it’s important to consider.

For the racier evening underwear, you can always have a special set, set a side and can slip into something more ‘pretty’ when all the formalities are over.
