I’m hoping to get some advice about what accessories to wear with my wedding dress – to help give me the impression of being a little taller?
I’ve got a soft mermaid/trumpet style dress, with a sweetheart neckline. I have a belt in the same colour as the dress (it was going to be a darker colour but realised it make me look like I had a short stump of a top and long legs), simply to hide the line caused by the boning of the dress ending.
I’m wearing 10cm platform heels, and I was advised to put “something” in my hair to bring the attention up to my head… so I was thinking of a necklace or something to stick in there (no tiara for me)?
Should I wear a necklace? I’m going to wear a not very long dangly earrings too. Thinking of a bracelet instead of a necklace if a necklace is going to make me look shorter?
Would love your thoughts bees!

I might be mistaken, but I think a necklace will make you look a bit shorter. Generally, all vertical lines will make you look taller, and all horisontal lines, shorter. I would think of ‘hanging’ earrings (is it the right word?) and an updo to show your neck.

If you have pictures that would be better. I think necklace is ok, but need some bling and longer necklace. Don’t wear the short one just around your neck.

Thanks ladies 🙂 I’ve had a few people say no to a necklace, and to add something in my hair, to draw the eyes / attention up higher, so I think I’ll go with that. I’m just not very ‘blingy’ haha but I’ve bought a floating pearl necklace to pin up on my hair – up in the back. Instead of a tiara I suppose.

@vesnushka: Took the words out of my mouth. Long skinny dangly earrings & updo with something pretty stuck in it = perfection.

Yup, I think the earrings and no necklace look is the best for us shorties. The belt is also key for rounding out your proportions by accentuating the natural waistline in a drop-waist or trumpet dress.
