Simple wedding dresses are a great choice for most any bride. You may want to keep it simple, or if you wish, you can easily jazz it up and completely change the look and feel of the dress simply by adding accessories. This is such an affordable and fun way to get the gown of your dreams and add things that you love—not things that are already there. Below is a rundown of top bridal accessories you can add to any plain dress to make it something special.
Bridal belts: Bridal belts hit the scene a few years ago and have become wildly popular. And we are not just talking sashes. We are talking wide belts that have beading such as pearls, crystals and rhinestones. The belt can have just one type of beading, or a mixture of all three. They also come with oversized fabric flowers, tulle, and more. The array that is available is vast and you are sure to find a style and color that suits your taste.
Jewelry: Of course jewelry is an obvious choice, but when you are trying to bring simple dress to life, thing big bold choices. Some brides love statement chandelier earrings, while others prefer tons of layered necklaces, pendent necklaces or a wide cuff bracelet. It is recommended that if you go with large earrings, don’t overdo it by adding a large necklace—and vice versa. The bracelet can be used with both looks.
Shoes: Shoes can absolutely make a look when it comes to the wedding ensemble, especially if your dress is a simple short style. Brightly colored shoes in red or blue are super trendy, as well as DIY bedazzled heels covered in rhinestones or crystals. It really transforms the simple dress into something that will wow your guests.
Hair pieces: Hair pieces are key in jazzing up a dress. But if you want to do it the right way, go bold with headbands or tiaras with lots of embellishment. You really want the headpiece to be the focal point of your look. Oversized flowers are also a lovely way to go and they come in a variety of different colors and styles. Just choose something that goes with the theme of your wedding and perhaps the color scheme. You won’t believe what a difference a statement hair piece will make.
