If you want your girls to sparkle on your wedding day (without stealing your shine) here are some ideas to accessorize with style.
Allow them to show their individuality
You can let each bridesmaid to choose accessories that they love especially if they will be wearing the same dress. However, you can limit some parameters. For instance, tell your bridesmaids to choose only pearl accessories or stick to beautiful crystal pieces. This way, it will appear well coordinated.
Focus on consistency
It is important for the bridesmaids’ accessories to blend even though they are not exactly similar. For instance, you can specify the length of the necklace or earrings to be worn by the girls. You can also ask your bridesmaids to only wear earrings and necklaces and not bracelets just to maintain consistency.
Simple is elegant
You wouldn’t want your bridesmaids to look overly done. You can ask them to choose one simple accessory- an earring, bracelet or necklace. In fact, this will allow the girls to spend more money on a stunning piece that will make a statement instead of buying many accessories which look cheap.
Complement bridal accessories
You can allow your bridesmaids to wear accessories which complement your own. For instance, you can choose accessories which follow a floral theme. The idea is to create a unique look that works for the bride as well as the bridesmaids.
Consider the neckline of your bridesmaids’ dresses
When choosing a necklace, always remember that it will look good depending on the neckline of your beautiful bridesmaids’ dresses. Most necklaces with a length of 14 inches can work well with almost all types of necklines.
Wrist watches shouldn’t be considered as suitable accessories for your bridesmaids. Ask them to leave their watches at home. They need to be enjoying your idea and not worrying about time.
Think outside the box
Other than necklaces, earrings and bracelets, you can choose accessories which are customized for your maids. For instance, you can choose a woven hair piece or African necklace for each bridesmaid which complements your wedding theme.
Shoes are a very sensitive subject for most bridesmaids. You need to buy shoes which are reasonably priced so that all your bridesmaids can afford it. The heel height needs to be comfortable for your maids. Try and avoid flats especially if your maids are not very tall. A good shoe height will complement the bridesmaids dress.
Purses and Bags
The purses or bags your bridesmaids carry don’t have to match the other maids. However, you can specify a color or style which you would like each one of them to consider. Small purses are better so emphasize on this.
Give bridesmaids accessories as gifts
One amazing way to make sure your bridesmaids wear specific accessories you love is by buying for them as gifts. They will always remember your special day when they wear them in future.
Shop together for accessories
If you are having trouble finding the right accessories, gather all the maids together and go shopping. You can visit a couple of stores and find beautiful wedding accessories you all love.
