Jewelry, hairpiece, shoes, belt/sash? How do you put together a look? I have a blank canvas of a gown and it could go in any direction, but I’m clueless and I have no vision. Do you get the shoes first? Then accessorize? I just don’t know the order of how I’m doing this. Or do you envision a look first and then piece it together in any order?
There is no wedding theme, color, venue. We’ll just be getting married outside in the mountains. No wedding party or anything.
Feel free to share how you built your look, and feel free to make suggestions on my blank canvas.
Here’s my dress:
(It doesn’t have that much sheen in real life)
I bought these shoes today. While they are super cute and very comfy and went with all my summer dresses, not sure it’s in the direction I envisioned?
I liked this one too, but honestly folks, I don’t know what the heck I’m doing.
Maybe head in the silver/grey/charcoal direction?

I started with a couple of heirloom pieces I knew I’d be wearing (necklace from one grandma, earrings from the other), and then found a headpiece and shoes that would work with them. You could start with any given piece, but find something special, whether for sentimental reasons or because you just plain love it, and build from there.
Since your gown is so simple, maybe start with the headpiece. Are you planning on a veil? Your gown could work with a fairly ornate veil, if you wanted one. If you prefer no veil, maybe find a comb, fascinator, hairpiece, etc., and then add in the jewelry once that’s in place?

I’m terrible at accessorizing, but I would suggest that you check out the “Weddings & Events” section of Pinterest!

This bride looks great with just a crystal belt and earrings. I wear glasses and I worried that a neclace plus earrings would be too much going on.
