How to Pick Accessories for Every Bridal Dress Silhouette

Dress shopping can be really fun and exciting. When you finally land on that special dress it can feel like your whole big day falls into place. Now it is time to accessorize. Whether you want to keep it minimal or go over the top accessories are an essential for your wedding day.

Go for tradition with something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue or make your own traditions. Whether you're wearing family heirlooms, a secondhand veil, or hand me downs from your favorite sister your accessories can be a super personal way to show off your style. 

It can be difficult to decide on the right accessories without knowing your gown's silhouette. Now that the gown shopping is over we are here to help you find the best accessories for your silhouette and style. 

The Best Accessories for Every Silhouette 

A-Line dresses are a bridal favorite for a reason. This silhouette is flattering on every body type and size. You can accentuate your waist while still feeling roomy enough to tear up the dance floor all night long. With this classic style you can definitely play up your accessories.

If your dress is a crepe, silk, or plain fabric a beaded belt can add a beautiful touch of sparkle without being overpowering. This dress style is versatile and easy to accessorize. As the silhouette also lengths your legs we love a long drop earring to accentuate your neckline as well.  

Our Top 3 Choices for A-Line:

1. Lennox Earrings

2. Rigsby Belt

3. Sedona

Each piece has a pearl accent and gold tones for a cohesive look!

Mermaid gowns are ultra flattering for curvy and hourglass figures but they can work for anyone. If you choose this lovely silhouette there are so many options when it comes to accessories. You can use a belt to break up an overall pattern or lace detailing or accent your waist with a simple silk sash. 

A stunning hair piece can also bring together your look. We love a hair comb with your veil for that added hit of glitter and glam. Go for subtle studs or a dramatic drop earring to finish off the look.

Our Top 3 Choices for Mermaid:

1. Ada Comb

2. Audrey Sash

3. Posey Cuff

A Ball Gown is a timeless and classic choice. Sure to make you feel like a princess we love this silhouette for every bride. If you chose strapless then a dainty necklace and dangling earrings can be an elegant choice. A belt cinched at your waist will help accentuate your natural curves as well.

Go for a full glam look with intricately beaded earrings and a halo hair piece. No matter what you select your ball gown will be elevated by the right accessories. Wear what makes you feel confident and true to yourself.

Our Top 3 Choices for Ball Gowns:

1. Shona Earrings

 

2. Fiona Belt

3. Jessa Halo

A Trumpet gown is a subtle but elevated choice for brides who loved the mermaid style but want a less dramatic fit. This silhouette hugs your curves in all the right places but is roomy and totally wearable. Dance all night in this style without any discomfort. 

For this style we say go with a minimalist lariat necklace and matching earrings for a cohesive look. To match accessories focus on the materials. If you picked gold earrings then it's probably best to go with gold for your other accessories. If you like pearl then make sure your accessories have a pearl accent somewhere to tie it all together.

Our Top 3 Choices for Trumpet:

1. Camila Necklace

2. Jordyn Hoop

3. Anna Leather Belt

 

A Sheath style dress provides a snug but sleek fit for modern brides. We love that this silhouette works without a train if that's your thing. We say ditch the necklace and go all out with your earrings for this style. Forgo the belt and instead opt for and elegant halo or hair comb to draw the eye up.

This comfortable and modern style is perfect for petite brides or to give a tall bride more dimension. Keep accessories simple with this style for the ideal look. We love this silhouette because it's easy wearing and fun to accessorize. 

Our Top 3 Choices for Sheath:

1. Dubois Comb

2. Skylar Earrings

3. Magdalena Hoops in Mother of Pearl

A Tea Length dress is an excellent choice for our unconventional brides who still want a timeless look. Perfect for brides who want to show a little leg or show off those wedding shoes. This style is customizable to your body type so you can pick the fit and length that looks best on you.

You can have so much fun with this style. Go bold with hoop earrings and a couple of chunky bracelets for a truly unique look. This style is made to party in and have some fun on your big day. 

Our Top 3 Choices for Tea Length:

1. Emery Cuff

2. Dani Hoops

3. Maya Clips
