Head Over Heels

Your wedding attire is more than just a dress. Take care when selecting your accessories.

TAKE SPECIAL CARE  in choosing your headpiece and veil as they frame your face. When we envision a “radiant bride,” we see her face surrounded by her headpiece and veil.

CUSTOM-DESIGNED MILLINERY is usually no more expensive than ready-made and does not have to be ordered months in advance. Choose pearls, sequins, beads, lace, bows, or a smart bridal hat. A milliner is like a hair stylist, he or she creates the style especially for you!

NOW, LET’S TALK ABOUT SHOES:  They must be comfortable for standing, walking, and dancing. Break them in at home on a carpeted floor. Choose fabric shoes that complement your gown and those of your attendants – even lace is available and can be dyed to match the dress they will be worn with.

TAKE YOUR SHOE to all fittings since hemlines are measured up from the floor when you are wearing your shoes. It’s worth repeating: buy for comfort, even if it costs a little more!

WHEN SELECTING THE JEWELRY you will be wearing, take into consideration the type wedding (casual or elegant) you are having as well as the dress you will be wearing. Good jewelry should enhance, not compete with your dress.
