Celebrity Brides: Best Bridal Accessories from our Favorite Starlets

Let me ask you something, ladies: if you’re looking for some wedding inspiration, are you going to remember some token necklace you saw on Facebook or Kim Kardashian’s? Our guess is the latter. So, if you want to find the right inspiration for your bridal bling, check out these wedding accessories from our favorite starlets….A little touch of something borrowed to make you shine even brighter.

 

The Flower Crown

Who says that flower crowns are only for Coachella and Snapchat filters?

Ashley Tisdale looks beautiful, carefree, and whimsical in her simple white and green flower crown. Instead of going traditional and letting your bouquet steal the floral spotlight, throw on a little something to make you look like a garden goddess.

This works even better for a ceremony or reception that’s outdoors, or even just for pictures like Ashley!

 

The New Tiara

Are flowers not your thing? Maybe diamonds are your best friend, so why not spring for the new tiara and mimic Kim’s dazzling headpiece. Just because we’re all Team Kimye now doesn’t mean that we can’t admire her accessories from her first wedding, right?

You’ll look like a modern princess with this diamond headpiece, which is great if you need to add a little sparkle to your special day.

 

The Lace Shoes

Sometimes a bride’s shoes are overlooked in weddings because of floor length dresses. But if you’re opting for something that gives a peek of your feet, or just want to show them off in photos, then it can be all about the shoes! No other accessories needed.

Whitney Port compliments her dress beautifully with a stunning pair of white floral shoes that give off the appearance of lace. This will especially work with a lace gown! Even if you’re not wearing a high-low dress, a perfect pair of heels like this will still make a difference.

They’re simple, they’re elegant, and they could be exactly what you need to strut down the aisle.

 

The Never-ending Veil

 “She looked like an angel.” Or a Victora Secret Angel!

Kate Grigorieva definitely lives up to her winged-title with her never-ending veil. Take a page out of her book and float down the aisle. You won’t need any other accessories! You’ll look like the picture of elegance and grace, and nobody will be able to take their eyes off of you (or your veil!) Imagine those wedding photos. Sorry, Victoria, but your secret’s out!

 

The Minimalist

Let your dress do the talking! All that you need on your wedding day is a beautiful dress, the love of your life, and a pair of stunning drop-earrings. This looks especially amazing with strapless dresses, as seen on Chrissy Teigen and Gabrielle Union. Stay classic. Go bare—show off those collarbones and don’t overdo it with the jewelry. Simplicity will always be in style.

 

 

You can glam up with a similar look with these magical tear drop clusters, featuring pear, marquise, and princess cut diamonds.

It all depends on you, your dress, and your dream for your wedding. Whether it’s a touch of florals, the right pair of shoes, or a classic earring, you’ll look radiant walking down the aisle with these starlet inspirations.

 

6 Rules for Accessorizing Your Wedding Dress

Like Chanel and Cara Delevingne, some things are meant to be together. Wedding accessories are one of these bonds, a beautiful duo, standing as the second most important part of your bridal look—so yes, it’s very important. Yet, there are classic rules to play in the game of great accessorizing, ensuring that you don’t go overboard with glitz, while also not being too plain jane. To guide your accessory quest, follow these 6 rules for accessorizing your wedding dress.

 

“Fashion is architecture, it’s a matter of proportions.” ­ Coco Chanel

 1.) Balance:

‚ÄčYour accessories should not be the centerpiece, but rather the décor. Essentially, the pieces you choose should complement the flow and style of your dress without creating too much weight. For instance, if your dress is intensely dramatic and bedazzled, you should stick with delicate pieces, but if your dress is slim and understated, you can wear chunky statement jewelry. 

  

“Elegance is not about being noticed, it’s about being remembered.” Giorgio Armani

 2.) A Photogenic Look:

Unless you’re a full-time supermodel, your wedding day is the time you’ll be photographed more than you have in your entire life.  To complement the camera, you’ll need to choose accessories that work well in the photos. Certain colors and textures may clash more in photos than to the naked eye, so do a test run of your entire look in the wedding hall, considering lighting, as well as every angle.

 

 

Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and remove one accessory,” ­Coco Chanel

 

3.) Comfort:

As much as you’d love to shine bright all night, you also need to consider your comfort level—at least to a practical degree. Think about how you’ll be on your feet, in heels, all day, and throughout the reception. So if you’re going to pull out all the bridezilla stops, including painful shoes, a push up bra, double spanx, hair extensions and bulky accessories—the accessories may be more glamorous in your head than in real life. If you want to truly enjoy the night with ease, treat comfort with importance.

  

“Fashion is over quickly, style is forever”­ Ralph Lauren

4.) Keep it Classy:

Although you should certainly consider modern trends, it's best not to go overboard with new bridal gimmicks. Styles like the vine headband or feather earrings may seem like a good idea to a fashionista in the moment, but you may not feel the same when looking back. It’s that same feeling you get when observing your old high school photos, questioning your tacky self-tanner and belly ring. To avoid such disappointing memories, choose accessories that are timeless and less trendy.

 

“Playing dress up begins at age 5 and never truly ends” ­ Kate Spade

 

5.) Prepare in Advance:

It goes without saying that your bridal look is not something to leave to the last minute. Arrange your makeup and hair stylists in advance, allowing you to choose your matching accessories and bring the entire look together. Many brides treat their hair, makeup and accessories as separate concerns, which can interrupt the harmony of your ensemble. Prepare every detail in advance, even if you are a hopeless procrastinator.

  

“Fashion is about something that comes from within you”­ Ralph Lauren

 

6.) Have The Final Say:

You’ve had parents, future in­laws, pushy bridesmaids and even nosey strangers give you advice on everything from the cake, to the decor of your wedding, to whom to include on the guestlist. While it's great (sometimes) to be offered input from those trying to help, the final say on your bridal look should adhere to your personal style not your mother in laws, or anyone else. Because it truly is your day, don’t second guess your ideas.
