How to Accessorize Your Bridal Attire

Accessories are such a fun part of getting ready, so enjoy picking them out.

There are a few pointers that can help...

DON'T stick to bridal accessories. "They are often more expensive and really predictable," she advises. Shop around.

DON'T overdo it if you're wearing a dress with lots of embellishment. " You might only need one extra thing- some sparkle in a pair of earrings, or maybe your hair and makeup will give the finishing touch. Less is more."

DO look to the red carpet for inspiration. A-listers often just wear one piece of statement jewelry with wedding gowns.

DO try on everything, even things you're sure you wouldn't be seen dead in, from traditional veils and tiaras to sashes, gloves, and jewelry that's outside your comfort zone.

DO look at vintage accessories and costume jewelry.
