Wonderful extras

On your wedding day, your wedding gown will be one of the stars. The gown itself will be gorgeous, but there are loads of options that you can have to really accentuate the design, work with your theme and finish off your look. The brides below have opted for some classic (and not so classic) extras that work wonderfully.

Rachel Hamilton accessorised her gown with a lime green sash and a pretty floral print parasol. Gorgeous choices for a spring garden setting. 

One of our couture brides, Holly (Nolan) Kendall, chose to have a soft latte coloured sash around her waist. With all of the elaborate and delicate lace appliqued onto the gown, something like this helps to bring all of the different elements together to a focal point, with the added bonus of being very flattering by cinching in the waist. Her diamante hair comb was also a beautiful touch.

Michelle Sprogis chose one of our favourite diamante brooches from our stores. This brooch (which we call the 'Spider brooch') works fabulously with so many looks, but particularly well with the 'Velvet Ribbon bodice' which Michelle wore on her special day. 

We have featured our couture bride Kris Teychenne before, but I could not resist the opportunity to put her in this post again. She chose a headpiece (instead of a veil) which is something a lot of brides are opting to do. For those who do not want a traditional veil this can be a stylish alternative. We have also had a lot of brides who wear their veil for walking down the aisle, then switch to a headpiece for the reception.

Lauren Neil looks so pretty in a headpiece with face net.

Another one of our couture brides, Jade Hawkins, looks stunning in her gown, with a rich green velvet ribbon sash and a green headpiece as well. Both worked perfectly with her flowers and her colour theme.

Another extra feature which is very 'in' right now is the one shouldered flower corsage. Laure Dickson-Battye teamed her gown with our soft bella georgette corsage over her left shoulder - gorgeous! 

And lastly, our couture bride Cindi Roennfeldt accessorises her gown with a flower in her hair and a cute little bub in her arms - what an adorable look!
