With all the excitement surrounding finding your dream wedding dress, it’s sometimes easy to forget that the dress is only one part of your wedding day look! In the same way little details and sweet touches add layers of beauty to your reception tables, carefully chosen accessories customize your look in a way that’s all your own. I couldn’t help but think back on my own wedding day while perusing Bel Aire Bridal’s new collection–I was a spring bride, and thought an elegant, but still romantic and sweet, bridal style would be a perfect fit for the season. All of those words rang true to me when I was thinking of ways to describe these new Bel Aire Bridal pieces, from the rose gold and pearl comb to the horsehair-edged veil. So, if you’re a spring bride too, you’ll definitely want to take a look!
Just like when hunting for your dress, the key to choosing the perfect accessories for your wedding is to keep the big picture in mind. Is your venue ultra-modern and chic or romantic and rustic? Are you planning a black-tie soirée or a garden brunch reception? Envisioning your celebration and how you hope to look and feel will make it much easier to decide between multiple options you love!

Of course, if you have your dress, that will certainly play a major role in your accessories decision, but here’s a secret: if you fall in love with a veil or earrings or another accessory early on, there’s no rule saying you have to wait to find your dress first! We’ve heard plenty of stories from brides who searched for a dress to match the veil they dreamed of wearing. In fact, I kind of love the idea of basing your wedding day look around an accessory (what kind of dress would you pair with this tiara or this comb?), especially because it’s something that’s so easy to pass down to future generations. “Heirloom potential” is an important consideration when choosing your accessories, and I can imagine any of the Bel Aire Bridal pieces becoming family treasures for decades to come!
Which of these pieces is your favorite? Did you have a favorite wedding day accessory? We’d love to hear!
