Getting married is an amazing experience. It also can be a little bit stressful. There are so many details to take care of that the planning process can quickly become overwhelming. One way to ensure that everything goes smoothly on your wedding day is by having all of the right accessories on hand. Be sure to bring along the following five essential bridal accessories on the day of your wedding:
1. Comfortable shoes.
Getting married means being on your feet for long periods of time. Not only do you have to walk down the aisle but you also have to do a lot of standing, both during the wedding itself and at the reception. The last thing that you want is for your feet to be sore, tired, or covered with blisters.
Most brides use one pair of shoes for the actual wedding and bring along a second pair of shoes that are a bit more comfortable for the reception. If you decide to change into more comfortable shoes, just make sure that the heel height is similar to the height of the heels on the shoes that you walked down the aisle in so that your dress doesn’t become too long or too short.
2. A touch-up kit for your hair and makeup.
Throughout the day, your hair and makeup may need to be freshened up periodically so that you can stay looking your best. Bring along a touch-up kit that includes any essential makeup items along with a brush, some bobby pins, and some hairspray. That way, you can deal with any hair or makeup mishaps with ease.
3. A jacket, shrug, or wrap.
Most wedding dresses aren’t designed with warmth in mind. Be sure to bring along some kind of jacket or wrap that you can use to cover up with if you step outside or get chilly. Even if you are getting married during the summer, temperatures can quickly drop when the sun goes down. It is best to be prepared so that you don’t have to sit around shivering.
4. A headpiece.
Although you don’t need to wear a headpiece, they can be a lot of fun to dress up your look. Whether you opt for a traditional veil or go for something a little bit more fun like an old-fashioned fascinator or a flower crown, there are a ton of different ways that you can use a headpiece to add personality and glamour to your look.
Your bridal jewelry is the icing on the cake. It provides the perfect finishing touch to your look. If your dress is ornate, try to avoid large, clunky pieces, opting instead for jewelry that is a bit more understated. On the other hand, if your dress is relatively simple, you can add more elaborate pieces of jewelry to elevate your look.
Bringing along these five essential bridal accessories is the best way to ensure that your wedding day is absolutely perfect. Don’t be afraid to use unique or unusual accessories to add a touch of personality to your bridal look.
