The Wedding Dress Accessories Guide 2019

If you are looking for something special to accompany you down the aisle (apart from your glamorous bridesmaids), we have created our guide to the top wedding dress accessories for 2019. If you are feeling superstitious, you might even kill two birds with one stone and get your ‘something new’ at the same time!

Veils

The veil is the most iconic and divisive bridal accessory. Some people dream of wearing a long regal netting, like Meghan Markle, and revealing themselves ceremoniously to their groom as they make their vows. Others consider them to be old- fashioned and outdated. This year, the veil has seen an update that has put it firmly back on the top bridal trends of 2019 – with some glitz. Veils covered in crystals have been all over the runways this year, alongside some beautiful sparkling wedding dresses. However, it is important to pick a veil that compliments your dress and doesn’t detract from it, especially if you have some incredible embroidery or feature on the back. If a veil is for you, we can help you pick the perfect one.

Hair Accessories

Beyond veils, there are all sorts of hair accessory options to top off your wedding look. All varieties of tiaras and hair clips remain firm favourites of all types of bride, but this year has seen the emergence of the bridal hairband, which has become a popular choice. Again, many of them are covered in crystals and other sparkles, and can be worn with or without a veil. They can be the perfect solution if you want something a little more low key than a tiara.

Shoes

It’s important you pick shoes that suit your dress and your style, but this year the focus has been on comfort. This has even led to lots of brides wearing flat shoes under their dresses, which can be ideal for the taller bride who wants to dance the night away. For brides who want to add on a few inches, you might want to consider whether they are comfortable, and even whether you can add insoles to make sure walking down the aisle feels like walking on air. We have a large range of shoes, for all brides of all heights and styles.

Capes

Finally, at the kookier end of the wedding dress accessories this year, some brides have opted to get hitched in a cape. Not quite the superhero type and perhaps not for the summer bride, capes can be a beautiful alternative to a veil or a wrap around, and can give a dress an added layer of sophistication and allow for one dress to look totally different in various parts of the wedding.

We always have a range of wedding accessories in stock. Contact us to make a private appointment with our bridal specialists.
