I don’t get to write that many articles about fashion tips for brides, so I’ve been looking forward to this one for quite a while. At my own wedding, people were constantly telling me how beautiful I looked, and so I know how important it is to pick out the best possible dress. With that in mind, this post will draw attention to some of the items you may wish to consider, whilst also highlighting exactly why they work so well. At the end of the day, this is probably going to be one of the most special occasions of your life, so it’s vital you get it right.

 You might think that heading down to your local dress store and picking out the most expensive items would be enough, however; you need to put a lot more thought into your outfit. So, take a quick read through all the suggestions I’ve made here, and you should come away with a better understanding on the type of products that are guaranteed to make you look like a million dollars.

Choosing The Perfect Dress

Presuming you’ve decided to get married during the summer, you definitely want to opt for a traditional white dress. However, you don’t have to pick something up with a huge tail, as this looks very 1980’s. Instead, ask to see some of the stores more fitted numbers because short and slinky is very much “in” at this time of year. Also, avoid anything with floral patterns.

Choosing The Perfect Jewellery

Unless you want to look like as natural as possible, it’s wise to pick out some great quality wedding jewellery. Personally, I like to see a diamond necklace and perhaps a small and elegant bracelet in the same style, but you should aim to find something that suits your choice of dress. As your wedding ring is probably going to be made out of gold, it’s best to wear silver jewellery to ensure your most prized possession is highlighted sufficiently.

Choosing The Perfect Shoes

Footwear can be a real pain on your wedding day, as even the shortest of dresses tend to hang very low. Obviously, you’ll need some attractive heels that match the rest of your outfit, so try to find white shoes with silver decorations if you can. Alternatively, consider having some specially made for your big day. While this might cost a lot, you can’t really think about the money too much on this occasion.

Choosing The Perfect Accessories

As you can see from the image I’ve included alongside this post, elbow length white gloves make for the ideal wedding accessory, and so you should most definitely purchase some for your big day. Try to find them in silk or velvet, as this will make you feel comfortable and luxurious.

Now you’ve read through all my tips, I’m confident you’ll look like an angel when your wedding day finally arrives. Just don’t forget to plan well ahead, and everything should go smoothly. Also, feel free to send me an invitation because I love a good knees-up.


I wish you the best of luck with your marriage!
