    After you choose your wedding dress, you'll probably start thinking about what accessories will look best with your gorgeous gown. Many brides select very traditional pieces, but what if you want to showcase more of your own personality and style? Well then my dear, then go in search of accessories that speak to your fashion soul. Go with your gut and wear what love.
    The Dress
    Before we talk about the jazzy accessories you might like to select, you might want to decide on your dress. Would you like it to be more traditional, or a little out of the ordinary. You can always play around with adding colorful embellishments, going with vintage, raising the hemline and much more. Be sure that you select a gown you LOVE and makes you feel like a bride.
    The Shoes
    Bridal shoes generally peek out only slightly from the bottom of the wedding gown. More and more brides are having a lot of fun by putting their personal flare and funky style into their bridal shoe selection. At weddings today, you are likely to find glittery sneakers or pumps, brightly colored heels or ballet flats, beautifully embellished cowboy boots, and much more!
    The Accessories
    Bridal jewelry and other wedding accessories are another way that brides can really show off their personal style. Bold necklaces are very popular for brides who choose a strapless gown. However, some of these brides choose to forgo neck adornment and instead go for a striking pair of drop earrings. Many brides today are also losing the veil and instead selecting beautifully ornate hair pieces, or using a blusher.
    There are so many ways that brides can showcase their personal style. Brides, don't go with what you think people expect you to have or wear, instead choose what makes you (and your groom) happy. When all is said and done YOU will be left with those wonderful memories of how perfectly authentic your big day was.

    1. First Things First

    The best and first thing you should do is to sit down with your sweetie and make a list of all the places the two of you might like to go on your honeymoon. Are you looking for tropical sandy beaches, do you want to get lost in a big city, are you looking for a destination that holds great historical significance or would you like to travel to another country - passports in hand - and experience the sights sounds and flavors it has to offer?

     

    2. Consider Your Budget

    If you have a budget, as most brides and grooms do, you'll want to take that into consideration while planning your honeymoon. If you are paying for your wedding yourselves then you might decide to have a short and romantic weekend getaway, then opt for a more elaborate honeymoon a few months after your wedding. You'll want to consider travel lodging, meals, activities etc. as you are mapping out your budget.

    3. Honeymoon Activities

    In addition to the destination you and your soon-to-be-spouse will also want to consider the types of activities you'd like to on your honeymoon. Knowing what activities the two of you would like to do on your romantic getaway can be very helpful to determine where you ultimately want to go. Once you do that you can check prices and even see what packages are available. Sometimes travel packages can include airfare, hotel accommodations, a meal or two and one or two activities and a reduced price. You can research online or speak with a travel agent for more information.

     

    Whatever you decide to do, it will be memorable. Take a chance. Go somewhere you've always dream of going, do things you've never done and just enjoy each other!!!
