The dress matters but the style matters more. We all know that it isn't only about the dress; the accessories, hair, and makeup are all important factors in the creating the perfect look. Here are some tips to bring your look to the next level!

  • Tailored to Perfection.One can assume that this is a no-brainer. The fit for any dress is important. However, for a bride wearing a simple dress, getting the dress tailors to perfection is even more important. Why, you ask? A flaw in a simple dress can be spotted more easily than in a wedding gown. Which is why tailoring the dress to suit your body type can perfect the look and make it look chic and elegant.
  • Bring on the Accessories! Jewellery and statement pieces are the ultimate hack when it comes to completing the elegant look. Neck pieces, veils, tiaras, bows, gloves, etc. are all wonderful accessories! Adding a little bling makes the dress look more classy and elegant which gives you a more sophisticated look. The right veil or tiara can make you look like a Disney princess. Accessories like gloves and bridal bows can give off a elegant yet simple vintage look. Remember to not over do the accessories as that can leave a try-hard and tacky vibe for others. Most importantly, it is how you feel about yourself in the end that is the most important.
  • The Key Is In The Details.While some brides may want to go full on minimalistic mode with their dresses, adding a few detailing can give off that extra flair of elegance. Adding a little lace, cut-outs, buttons or some beading and embroidery can give a more complete and elegant look. Don't overlook the simple details as they can make a large difference. Remember that less is more. Too much details could ruin your dress since we are going for a simple yet elegant look.
