How you accessorise your custom wedding dress will make a difference to your overall look. With so many decisions to make, it’s hard to know where to start. The best place to start however, is with your custom wedding dress. Once you have chosen the design and the materials for your custom wedding dress you can continue to build on your overall look.
There are quite a few different veil lengths to choose from. Starting from a short and sweet birdcage length, to shoulder, elbow, fingertip, ballet, waltz, floor, chapel and cathedral. The cut and length of your dress will depend on the length of the veil you have, but if you’re unsure Ella and her team can share their advice with you. Your veil should also match the colour of your custom wedding dress, rather than contrasting with it.
The next decision will be your shoes. You’ll need to consider the height of your heel, the colour and if any tracery will get caught on the material of your custom wedding dress. See our blog on how to match your custom wedding dress with the perfect shoes here.
Depending on your dress, less can mean more or a stunning statement piece can perfectly complete your look. You may also want to consider sentimental options, as jewellery is a wonderful choice for something old or something borrowed, even perhaps something blue or a combination of the three. It helps when all your jewellery is one tone so stick to either silver, or gold.
Your clutch is not just the perfect accessory to your custom wedding dress, but your best friend throughout your wedding day. It can hold everything you need from touch up lipstick to a sewing kit. See our Your Bridal Clutch Essentials blog here. You can choose your clutch by considering the style of your dress and your shoes. Sometimes a clutch is the perfect time to add a pop of colour (depending on your wedding’s theme) other times its best to match your clutch to your custom wedding dress or your shoes.
You may also want to consider other accessories like a flower crown or a sash or belt. Now is also a perfect time to opt for a pop of colour, depending on your Brisbane wedding theme.
