Once the dress has been designed or chosen, ordered and embellished, it's time to accessorise!


Accessories are by no means essential items, but they really do add that finishing touch and help to achieve to the overall look you are trying to create.


There are a number of Wedding dress accessories available, and by no means do Brides need to head out and purchase all of them (or at least don't tell your partner if you do!) and they are all covered throughout the course of this article. If by chance we have missed anything, please e-mail us and we will correct the error of our ways straight away.


Now, on with all those items that really can make all the difference...



Typically these are single or multiple layers of tulle normally attached to a comb-style slide.  One layer can be brought forward and worn over the face for the traditionalists out there (this originates from arranged weddings where the bride would hide her face until after the service so the groom couldn’t back out!). Standard lengths include: 36” (short), 45” (shoulder), 54” (waist), 72”(hips), 108” (floor), 126” (train), 144” (cathedral train). Whilst veils can not be exactly colour matched to a gown they should be pretty much invisible against the gown. Veils can also be trimmed with scatter beads, crystals or diamantes.


An alternative to tulle is chiffon which is a perfect complement to a medieval wedding, trimmed with gold embroidery and held in place with a narrow band encircling the top of the head (either made from flowers for the earthy look or as an ornate slim crown for a more regal affair).



Whether you are having a traditional veil or not, it is likely you will want a hair piece of some description.  If you are having a veil, your tiara will normally sit in front of the comb which holds it in place, the top layer could then be brought over both the tiara and your face if you are choosing this traditional look. Did you know that this historically stems back to medieval times when kings and lords arranged for their children to marry to combine the wealth of families.  The brides would cover their faces until after the service so that a groom wouldn’t run out on an agreement because their bride was less than pretty!
