1. Bridal Veils

Depending on your type of wedding - indoor, outdoor, formal or casual - you can find the perfect veil style. There’s the vintage birdcage wedding veil, classic shoulder and elbow length wedding veils, and even fingertip length veils.

2. Bridal Jewelry

The perfect amount of sparkle will complete any wedding day - and bridal jewelry is the perfect place for that sparkle. Depending on the amount of bling you want - you can go with a full tiara and jewelry set or maybe you simply select a few pieces of bridal jewelry. Consider adding just a necklace or fancy earrings if you prefer to go a bit more simple on your wedding day. You can even have your wedding day jewelry be the something new - maybe it’s Swarovski earrings, a rhinestone bracelet or a pearl necklace? {and don’t forget about the ladies in your bridal party - they might like a little “something new” gift for the big day as well}

3. Bridal Purses and Bags

Since there's bound to be a few things you will need nearby as you dance the night away at the reception, you will want something special to carry the essentials in. {your bridesmaids will too} A bridal evening bag is the perfect accessory choice to keep your belongings safe and to keep your “something old” secure.

4. Bridal Headpieces

If you prefer to top your wedding hairdo with something fancy - you will want to consider a bridal headpiece. If you’re planning a traditional wedding, you might choose both the tiara and veil or just a formal wedding tiara. If you’re a modern bride, you may opt for a simple headpiece or wedding hair flowers for that sparkle. Hair adornments include: Barrettes, Crowns, Hair Clips & Combs, Hair Pins, Hats, Headbands, Tiaras, and Twist Ins.

5. Bridal Sashes

Not only are bridal sashes gorgeous and full of sparkle - they can flatter your waistline even more dramatically than your wedding dress does. They’re a popular trend for both vintage and traditional brides - and you can find sashes and belts embellished with rhinestone beading, pearls or Swarovski crystals.

6. Bouquet Jewelry

One way to add the sparkle factor on your wedding day is to add sparkling crystals right in your wedding flowers with bouquet jewelry. You can choose from bouquet buckles and pins to attached to your wrapped bouquet. Or, you can add crystal floral jewelry directly into the centers of your bridal blooms.
