Glamorous Accessories for The Chic Bride

I'm single. So, while I don't know what it means to be a bride, I do know how to accessorize any outfit to within an inch of its life. Trust me when I say traditional veils and white satin pumps are for fashion novices who, well frankly, are afraid to take calculated risks even when the rewards are the stuff of haute couture dreams! A magical day deserves majestic details not easily forgotten, and there's nothing more forgettable than traditional bridal attire.

So, for the future Mrs. who longs to stand out from the cookie-cutter bride, there's a new crop of impossibly chic accoutrements that lend charm, polish and imagination to an otherwise orthodox bridal wardrobe. Consider adding a dose of unexpected color like a black, tiny veil or a fire engine red clutch. And, while pearl studs are a classy choice, think bigger, chandelier diamond danglers BIGGER! Whatever you choose, always remember that daring originality is rarely a bad idea. Your big day deserves those glittering, once-in-a-lifetime trimmings!
