There are many little details to think about as your wedding day approaches – finalizing guest count, confirming hotel reservations and writing your vows, but one thing you shouldn’t overlook is accessorizing your bridal look! Here are the items you should keep in mind when shopping for accessories.

Veils

Pick a veil that compliments your gown. Here are some examples:

1) If your gown is a plain satin mermaid gown; you could wear a fingertip veil with some beading.

2) If your gown is a princess ball gown; chose a simple, cathedral veil that won’t take away from your gown.

Headpieces:

Since you probably won’t be wearing a veil out on the dance floor during your reception, we suggest adding a side comb or hair pick for your reception!

Jewelry:

Remember Jewelry is what makes the bridal look complete and when selecting your sparkle – make sure each piece compliments one another. Some examples:

  • If you wear a statement necklace, be sure to pair it with diamond or pearl stud earrings and tennis bracelet.
  • If you select large chandelier earrings, we recommend not wearing a necklace, but a beautiful bracelet instead.

Other Must-Knows:

Clutches: You’ll need a clutch to stash all of your wedding day essentials including your phone, hotel key and lipstick to reapply after your “you may now kiss the bride” moment!

Shoes: Most brides that I see say shoes are the least of their worries because they are hidden under the dress. This is a bridal no-no! A gorgeous, dance-able heel is a must! I suggest you take a look at Jimmy Choo, Badgley Mischka, or Sarah Jessica Parker shoes at Kleinfeld.

Bolero: A bolero is the perfect substitute for a coat for fall and winter brides. Boleros come in all types of fabrics including lace, beading, and even faux fur!

Garter: Whether you stick with tradition and do a garter toss (or not) – you’ll still want to wear one underneath your dress.

Real Wedding: Katelyn & Ted

June 29, 2016 Emily Meussner
Kleinfeld Real Wedding

Katelyn and Ted were married at the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia. Because cardiology is an important part of both of their lives, this was the perfect venue to celebrate their nuptials. The bride wore a classic lace mermaid gown by Anne Barge with a beautiful pearl and crystal belt. The peach and white color palette was accentuated under lavender light at the venue, where guests danced the night away under Benjamin Franklin’s watchful eye. The couple took photos on the roof to end the night, with bustling Philadelphia serving as the background. Did we mention the fun, gigantic blow-ups of the bride and grooms faces? Marie Labbancz Photography captured all their happiness. See the photos below.

The Perfect Fit with Kleinfeld’s Artisan Alterations Team

Over the years, thousands of brides have found their perfect dress at Kleinfeld, and there are so many of factors that play into their ‘Say Yes to the Dress‘ moment. Over 200 professionals work in the salon, all striving towards the goal of helping brides-to-be feel their most beautiful for their wedding day. That wouldn’t be possible without the women that bring the bride the finished product, and the resulting bridal glow, who work in the on-site alterations department.

 

You might not know it, but after the perfect dress is found, photographed, signed for and at the salon, members of the alterations team spend up to 30 hours on a single dress, ensuring a perfect fit, shimmering embroidery and providing a picturesque end result. Custom fitters, sewers, beaders, embroiders and pressers spend tons of personal time with the dress, individually inspecting every inch.

 

Real Kleinfeld brides can thank these skilled artisans on their faultless craft, dedication to detail, and consistency. Lucky for them, this top-tier alterations team works exclusively on Kleinfeld dresses, giving the gown their full time and attention.
