Like Coco Chanel’s pearls or Carrie Bradshaw’s Manolo Blahnik’s, bridal accessories can be just as iconic as the people who wear them. These little finishing touches can elevate your bridal look and define your wedding day style. We love adding jackets, hair pieces, and veils to create a personalized look for each bride. Using a simple, crepe wedding dress by Martina Liana, this style transformed from boho to traditional to vintage with just a few bridal accessories.


One of my favorite ways to change the style of a wedding dress is using removable jackets, tops, and sleeves. I love the idea of wearing a tank at the reception for a fun, boho twist to a simple gown. A long sleeve lace jacket is perfect for a romantic touch, while a custom jean jacket adds a trendy feel. All these pieces create something unique and personal for your wedding day style.


The veil is the most defining accessory in a wedding. It’s the only item you can wear with pajamas, and everyone who sees you knows that you’re a bride! The perfect veil can make you feel as much of a bride as the perfect gown does. And just like your grandmother’s pearls, a stunning veil can be passed down for generations and become a family heirloom. With a variety of lengths, colors, and embellishments, The Bridal Collection makes it easy to select a veil to complements your wedding day look.

When most people envision a vintage veil, they immediately think of the birdcage veil; however, my favorite vintage veils are the full styles from the 1950’s and 1960’s. They give wedding gowns a fun and fresh look, and when paired with a classic string of pearls, you can take a modern gown back a few decades. Arianna by Toni Federici is considered a “bubble style veil” that is reminiscent of Ariana Grande’s retro-inspired wedding look.

Long veils tend to be my personal favorite, however. I love how a long veil drapes behind you as you walk, highlighting your silhouette on your journey to the altar. The veil helps set the tone for your wedding dress style, and a long veil always adds a romantic and dramatic flair.

Nowadays, bridal veils act as a way to express your personality and define your style as a bride. Colored veils are taking Instagram by storm because they break the norm of the traditional veil. I especially love the Goddess veil by Toni Federici for its jaw-dropping color contrast. Sottero and Midgley’s black lace Zander veil is the perfect pairing to the long sleeve Zander wedding dress or the strapless Norvinia ball gown. Both are black wedding dresses that the Maggie Sottero brand is infamously recognized for.

You can create more of a boho vibe using a soft Spanish tulle like Toni Federici’s Espana veil or go timeless with a lace edged veil such as V7391CX by Bel Aire Bridal. Of course, Veil Trends’ Zirconia veil is perfect for that soft glam aesthetic, as the entirety of the veil is designed with a sparkle tulle that lets you shine. The right veil not only completes your look, but it defines your style as a bride.

Whether you want to feel like a woodland princess or a vintage movie star, there is a headpiece for every style. The tiara is one of the most classic bridal headpieces outside of the veil. Once reserved only for princesses, now anyone can feel regal when wearing one. Toni Federici’s pearl and crystal tiara is subtle enough for a modern princess like Meghan Markle and pairs perfectly with pearl earrings.

For a more ethereal vibe, Bel Aire Bridal’s hair vine with pearls, gold leaves, and greenery takes the floral crown to a whole other level. You can wear the vine towards the back for an organic finish to your veil or like a headband for a vintage boho look.

If you’re looking for something a little more bold, I love a fascinator. You can style them to be more vintage or modern depending on your wedding dress. Feathers and florals are my favorite type of fascinator, and Cambridge by Veil Trends combines the two. Pair it with a full veil for a vintage style or wear it without a veil for a modern feel.

Like the veil, a headpiece can be passed down through friends and family. You can wear it on wedding anniversaries, repurpose it as jewelry or as other accessories, or even loan it to friends as their something borrowed.

Sashes and bridal belts are a great way to personalize your wedding gown. You can add sparkle or lace with tie of a knot and completely change the way the dress looks. These bridal accessories not only bring the waist in and highlight your curves, but they can be that special touch that customizes and completes your wedding dress. The Jericho sash by Veil Trends is a ribbon belt with rose gold beadwork and flowers that adds a rustic and elegant touch to a lace gown or makes a statement with a simple gown. For more of a glam look, Allure Bridal’s Swarovski® crystal belts bring the bling. But never forget the power of simplicity. Sometimes all you need is a different texture and a fabulous bow to make a statement.

Accessories are often the last thing brides think of for their weddings, even though they are incredibly important. Just like with our everyday wardrobes, the right earrings or belt can make or break your outfit. For your wedding dress, they can shift the style and feeling of your gown. These pieces can be passed down or borrowed out, and often becoming the favorite part of your dress. And like Jackie O’s sunglasses, the right accessories are iconic.
