Okay, so you can breathe a sigh of relief – you have your dress! But don’t settle in and think you’ve sorted all the important things for your big day, it’s time to find your accessories (and, you know, catering, venue, flowers, etc. but really, what does that compare to the dress?!).
I was one of those fools who left it late, and I didn’t even have a garter when it came to the day itself. Admittedly, I was making everything and was in the middle of 6 other bespoke commissions too, but I do wish I had made the time.
It was actually one of these clients that swayed me to at least have a veil. Her words of wisdom stuck with me – “what other day in your life would you get to wear a veil?” – and I thought, you’re right, it’s hardly an everyday opportunity, I need to make the most of it!
Whether you choose to veil or not to veil, don’t forget to think about any other headpieces, belts, lingerie, jewellery and of course shoes! Your first stop for beautiful lingerie should certainly be Rose Fulbright. Her stunning silk creations will keep you in comfort and style all through the day and the night!
You may decide to splurge on your shoes and buy something you can wear again (are those Louboutins I hear calling to you?) but if you want something exquisite and very bridal, you can’t go wrong with Freya Rose. Her designs are the perfect finishing touch to your big day.
In recompense for my lack of planning with my own wedding day accessories I am now designing a range for Wold Couture to make up for it! Watch this space for delicate veils, garters and more, all inspired by the beauty found in the Lincolnshire Wolds.
