Checklist for Bridal Accessories

You tend to sometimes overlook few of those accessories while planning for your wedding. Many brides will tell you that it is the smaller details that make your celebration unique and special, so I have put together a checklist so you have got everything you need when it comes to planning out for your accessories.

Accessories for the Bride

Undoubtedly, the most import item on the brides shopping list is her wedding dress, but these items will help complete your bridal look.

  • To compliment your gown, you will need a veil, hair accessories such as hair-combs and hairpins along with a headpiece.
  • To dance the night away a comfortable pair of wedding shoes. Have a spare in place as well for that ‘just in case moment’.
  • A clutch bag to carry all the wedding day essentials
  • In case it gets chilly, you are going to need a jacket or a cardigan
  • For that extra sparkle some wedding jewellery to go along with your wedding dress
  • The traditional bridal garter if you are planning a traditional ceremony
  • The right lingerie to add support and make you feel good on your big day.

  • An analog wristwatch that matches with his suit and does not draw a lot of attention
  • Carrying a handkerchief for the moments of tears of joy
  • Cufflinks for the shirt gives it a very sophisticated look that match the tie or cravat
  • Waist Coast to match the color of the suit or a slightly contrasting color to make it stand out
  • A tie or cravat that matches the colors of the wedding theme or the brides accessories. (or is at least close to it.)
  • If you are planning a very formal affair, gloves or an hat will help enhance your style
