Getting the dress/jumpsuit/suit/gown locked in is half the battle. But where do you start with accessories? If you read our recent blog this isn't something that you need to worry too early about. Otherwise it's very likely you will end up changing your mind down the track and spending twice the money - or ending up with seven pairs of 'wedding' shoes (do as I say, not as I do.)
With this in mind if you can wait until 2-3 months out from your wedding. The aim of the game is cohesion and balance - this definitely doesn't mean that your accessories need to be boring, but rather that you keep your overall style in mind. Remember there is a chance you will have flowers, your makeup hair and nails done etc. Have a think about what will be your statement per se, and decide from that onwards.
The aim should be to be yourself but a more polished version. That is, you don't want to look in the mirror and question who you are and why on earth you are wearing what you are. Always think back to your normal style and ask yourself if it feels like 'you' (apologies that we continue to repeat this, but it honestly is important!). Also, it's ok to have a little fun your outfit - yes, a wedding is a pretty serious commitment, but it's ok to inject your personality into your look!
