Bridal Accessory Q&A

Brides have lots of questions when it comes to choosing the right, veils, shoes, it can get overwhelming.  But we're here to help.  Here are some of our most frequently asked accessory questions!

Do I have to wear a veil?
No.  If the thought of wearing a veil makes you unhappy, don't pressure yourself to wear one.  There are lots of veil alternatives now.  Try a birdcage or simple face veil, cocktail hat, fascinator, or flower instead. Everyone will know you're the bride, even if you're not wearing a veil.  If you want to make mom happy and wear a veil, select a simple and elegant veil for the ceremony and switch to something more sparkly and fun for the reception.

Should I keep my veil on all night?
This one is totally up to you.  Most brides opt to remove their veil as it can tend to get caught and tugged on by all those hugging wedding guests.  We recommend removing the veil immediately after your ceremony and formal portraits or after your first dance.

What hand do I wear my bracelet on?
Wear it one which ever hand you are most comfortable with.  No preference?  Then slide that bangle on the right so your ring can get all the attention on the left.

Do I have to wear a necklace?
No.  A necklace can be a nice compliment to a simple or daring neckline, but is not a necessity.   If you prefer big, showstopping earrings, it's best to leave your neck line bare.

Can I wear open toed shoes in the winter?
Absolutely!  There are no rules anymore for closed toe and open toe shoes. Go ahead and show off those strappy sandals in the ballroom in February.  No one will think anything of it.  Still worried?  Opt for a peep toe or d'Orsay back shoe with an open center.  It's the best of both worlds.
