For more than 70 years, thousands of brides have traveled to Kleinfeld Bridal in New York City to find their wedding day looks. From the moment you walk through the doors, you’ll feel the magic of Kleinfeld. Not only does Kleinfeld have 30,000 square feet filled with the largest selection of wedding dresses in the world, it also has the greatest professional staff of over 200 employees who are dedicated to finding and perfecting your bridal look.
There are many little details to think about as your wedding day approaches – finalizing guest count, confirming hotel reservations and writing your vows, but one thing you shouldn’t overlook is accessorizing your bridal look! Here are the items you should keep in mind when shopping for accessories.
Pick a veil that compliments your gown. Here are some examples:
1) If your gown is a plain satin mermaid gown; you could wear a fingertip veil with some beading.
2) If your gown is a princess ball gown; chose a simple, cathedral veil that won’t take away from your gown.
Since you probably won’t be wearing a veil out on the dance floor during your reception, we suggest adding a side comb or hair pick for your reception!
Remember Jewelry is what makes the bridal look complete and when selecting your sparkle – make sure each piece compliments one another. Some examples:
- If you wear a statement necklace, be sure to pair it with diamond or pearl stud earrings and tennis bracelet.
- If you select large chandelier earrings, we recommend not wearing a necklace, but a beautiful bracelet instead.
Clutches: You’ll need a clutch to stash all of your wedding day essentials including your phone, hotel key and lipstick to reapply after your “you may now kiss the bride” moment!
Shoes: Most brides that I see say shoes are the least of their worries because they are hidden under the dress. This is a bridal no-no! A gorgeous, dance-able heel is a must! I suggest you take a look at Jimmy Choo, Badgley Mischka, or Sarah Jessica Parker shoes at Kleinfeld.
Bolero: A bolero is the perfect substitute for a coat for fall and winter brides. Boleros come in all types of fabrics including lace, beading, and even faux fur!
Garter: Whether you stick with tradition and do a garter toss (or not) – you’ll still want to wear one underneath your dress.
