12 ways to accessorize your wedding dress

Today’s look book editorial from Ivory & Beau bridal boutique, photographed by Izzy Hudgins, is an amazing one. You really can’t beat the ideas for accessories, hair, and makeup that the girls who dress brides-to-be day-in and day-out can come up with.

The looks range from sweet and simple to bold and eclectic but one thing that they have in common is they’re all perfectly executed!

While the first portion of this editorial utilizes classic colors there are definitely some fun and surprising styling details. One of my favorites is the look with the braided hair and feather earring (yes – she’s only wearing one!) The earring adds a sense of symmetry to the braid and it’s so perfectly bohemian – I adore it. Another detail to look for in part one (above) are the shoe choices. The open toe booties and black wedges are unexpected but still elegant.

The second portion of Ivory & Beau’s look book shows a lot more color and pizzazz. Flower adorned hairstyles and bold, colorful statement jewelry & accessories are fun ways to personalize your look!

Each bride and every wedding dress has her own unique look, style, and personality. The ladies at Ivory & Beau did an absolutely fantastic job showing that off – every combination of gown, makeup, hairstyle, and accessories is fun and flawless.

From Adrienna and Nicole of Ivory & Beau – “We wanted our look book shoot to not be a typical editorial so we incorporated a lot of accessories from a local boutique, Apricot Lane. We want to show brides that you can wear fun accessories and still be bridal!”
