Some good ideas for accessorizing and styling your wedding nuptials
When it comes to the big day, weddings seem to have a fashion agenda of their own. Which is usually uniformly awful. Stiff, white satin, uncomfortable ‘Cinderalla’ shoes, men in grayish waistcoats, bad bridesmaid dresses.
However, if you make some considered decisions over your accessories and stylish extras – such as the hair pieces and bridal shoes UK retailers such as Next provide – you can find a way to add a sense of fun and personality to your photos. And if it seems like you’re going too much out of your way, don’t worry; if you use a free printable wedding checklist, you can easily keep tabs on everything you have to do for the wedding, and find time to search for more special wedding footwear.
Let’s assume that you’re going for a white dress and the classic wedding get-up. Ok. But now let’s consider something more important than a sleeveless or sweetheart neckline. Your little feet, which, in the space of a good 12 hours of so, are going to walking, standing, waiting, photographed, toasting, dancing, crying probably and much more.
This year the big shoe trends are for chunkier heels and wedges – and there’s no reason why a delicate wedding shoe can’t bring in a little of the same flavour. Simple round-toed satin wedge court shoes are a bridal option for those bored of the kitten heel.
And for those of us who like a sprinkling of decadence, there is no reason why you shouldn’t have fun with embellishments and sparkle. If you just want a simpler shine, tap into this season’s patent trend – Next has shoes in both the bridal and regular range that showcase nudes, pearls and peaches in easy-to-wear patent looks.
But if you’re going all out, don’t hold back. The 1920s are a huge style influence in 2012, and the decade’s spirit of elegance and decadence is the order of the day. Feathers, beads and rhinestone clusters as decorations for shoes – gathered around the toe – or worn on headbands and fascinators will make an excellent alternative to bouquet accessorizing.
As for bling, think big earrings and keep your hair up to show them off. Wrists remain a big of a quiet area for wedding fashion – you could be the first to change that with a sparkling diamante cuff!
