Must-Have Bridal Accessories

Finding the dress is a huge deal, but even when you've decided on the one, you're not done completing your wedding day look just yet! Unless you like a really minimal, simple look, you'll probably want to do a little bit of accessorizing. You don't want to go overboard, because you want more of the attention to be on your stunning gown rather than your accessories... But a couple chic accessories make a huge difference. I'm definitely not saying you should wear all of these. Pick just a couple or a few to keep drawing attention from your gorgeous gown! Here are just a few of my picks for must-have bridal accessories! Emphasis on just a few... if I included all the bridal accessories I loved, this post would be neverending! ;) Here's just a bit to get you started thinking about what you like and don't like! 

Garters

Every bride needs a garter! That's one tradition that I'm all for keeping! I know they're not seen up close by anyone but your groom and whoever catches it during the garter toss, but it's such a fun, special little detail. And they make for great detail photos! Hint: get a garter set, with one to keep and one to throw. You'll want to keep one! From sweet and feminine to luxurious, there are so many great garters to choose from!

Veils

I just wrote a whole post on Monday about some of our Barn Brides who wore the most gorgeous veils. There are SO many stunning styles and lengths to choose from, but here are just a handful of veils to get you started!

Belts

Belts and sashes are perhaps my favorite bridal accessory! They look stunning on a simple dress without much detailing, or with a lace dress. They're the perfect accessory to add just a bit of bling and a unique touch to your dress!

Hair Accessories

Whether it's a vintage barrette or a great headband, I can't get enough of bridal hair accessories! We've seen lots of flower crowns on brides, but other types of hair accessories aren't quite as popular. That needs to change... They are gorgeous!
