Door County Bride-To-Be — Accessorizing!

With so much of my time going into planning the “bigger” aspects of the wedding, it’s nice to take a step back and look at some of the finer details once and a while… like the accessories!
When I first got my dress, I could already envision what kind of veil, shoes and jewelry I wanted to wear with it. I love the idea of having some cute, colorful heels for the ceremony, and then changing into some lower shoes for the reception.
As far as jewelry goes, I really like the look of pearls. They are simple, soft and sophisticated, while retaining that reminiscent vintage feel.
For a veil, I love the traditional style (and I even may wear my mom’s veil) but I also think the newly trending “birdcage netting” veil is very classy and old-fashioned looking. I’ve been searching for one I really like, but I haven’t found anything that really screams at me yet. I did, however, find some great tutorials on how to make your own custom birdcage veil, and they are surprisingly easy to make! Here is a good, quick tutorial that I found helpful from oncewed.com.
As I’ve been looking for ways to save money on the wedding, I found it astounding how expensive some of these wedding accessories can be. I would also like to add my own custom wedding dress sash, but I just can’t justify paying hundreds of dollars to find one I really like. So, another tip I came across was to make your own! You can buy your own ribbon and find some gorgeous pearl and gemstone appliqués on sites like Etsy for less than a quarter of the cost.
As far as the bridesmaids go, I’m really open to letting them choose their own accessories. Their dresses are all the same fabric and color, but are all different styles, so I think letting them find accessories that really complement their dress style and taste is the best way to go. Ultimately I want them to feel good about what they’re wearing, and I really like the idea of each girl having their own unique style!
Until next time!
