How to choose the perfect wedding accessories | West Palm Beach Wedding Photographer | Shannon Griffin

Finding your wedding dress can be hard enough, but then you add in the task of finding the perfect accessories to go with it. I love using resources, such as Pinterest, to help give me style inspirations, but that can become overwhelming and cumbersome.

I think the best thing to do is keep it true to you and your every day look. For example, if you're someone who has a classic wardrobe, you might opt for a classic veil. Let's look at some examples of veils (and of course, you have to also choose the length and detail).

This one keeps it classic, but I love the detail in the trim:

Here is a very thin veil. This style is one of my favorites because it is so simple that it doesn't take away from the dress. I feel that you could pair this veil with absolutely any style of wedding dress or even a gorgeous pantsuit. (Veil courtesy of Vocelles):

A classic mantilla is always beautiful and keeps with certain traditions (mantilla courtesy of St. Patrick:

This floral veil was a showstopper!

Or, you can go with something off the wall and gorgeous, such as this creative veil from Jurgita Bridal

Now, let's take a look at bridal headpieces. These are such a great way to add a little extra to your look. The great thing about them is that you can wear them with or without a veil. They bring this whimsical element that is sure to be a showstopper. 

Here are a few examples of some favorites that I've photographed over the years:

These next two are hair pieces that look like flowers. I love how one bride used it as her "something blue"!

This bride opted for real flowers and the outcome is gorgeous!

If you don't want to wear any bridal head pieces, you do have other options. You can wear gorgeous statement jewelry, like the cameo necklace pictured bellow:

Or, you could skip all of the accessories and make a statement with your hair!

Whatever you decide, just remember that it's your wedding day and you should stay true to you.
