Girls who either married or are getting married soon, did you purchase accessories while you were still waiting for your dress to arrive? If so, how did you make sure your veil and shoes and any other accessories (e.g., a headband, sash, etc.) matched the color of your dress?
Do you think I can get a swatch of fabric from my dress designer? Or do I just have to wait until I have the dress? I’m anxious to start shopping for stuff, of course!

For the veil, I don’t think you have to worry too much about matching the colors since it’s sheer and you can’t really tell what the color is. I did have a little swatch of the dress color though (even though it was the wrong fabric).

i bought my shoes way before my dress. i didn’t want white/ivory shoes so i didn’t need to worry about matching the exact shade of white.
for veil, i didn’t buy it until after i received my dress. but i did research online and look around bridal shops to see what style i like/want before i received my dress.

Im guessing your dress is ivory? and you want ivory shoes? I think if you do ivory in a different material it will be fine. Just dont do satin shoes with a satin dress bc if they dont match it will be obvious. Or you could get a silver or gray shoe. If you order from shoes.com you can just order a bunch of shoes and try them on with the dress and then send the rest back for free.
I am not sure about the veil, but since it is sheer and a different fabric than your dress it should be fine. Unless your dress is ivory tulle.
My dress is whit white so everything will just be white, except my shoes, fushcia, hopefully.

My dress is… some shade of ivory/white. I don’t really know what it is! It’s not stark white, but it’s not a true ivory, either. And therein lies the problem… it’s going to be tough to match. I would like matching shoes though, if I can find them. I bought a couple pairs already, actually, but I’m just worried that neither is going to be quite right. I could always go the metallic/rhinestone route for shoes and not have to worry about it. Good point about using shoes.com.
Sounds like the consensus is that my veil doesn’t have to be an exact match, which is good to know!
