red-bridal-shoes2Selecting the right bridal accessories are as important as selecting the right jewellery and attire. When you go for shopping, be sure they go well with the dress. Matching the colour of the accessory with the clothes or the embroidery is very important. The accessories reflect your personality. Picking up the right accessory will enhance or destroy your personality. Now-a-days many options are available to choose from. A look is complete only when everything goes well with each other.


Accessories should compliment your clothes just like your hair do or makeup does. Remember not to over accessories yourself. Carry stuff that you are comfortable in and it shouldn’t be over-the-top.


Shoes are the most important accessory for the bride as they add essence to your dress and your look. Be very careful while choosing the kind of shoe. The most important feature of a shoe is that it should be comfortable. Shoes should be stylish but not at the cost of comfort. For a bride her shoe is very important. The heels should also depend on how tall is the groom, if you want to look taller than him, that’s up to you.

These days brides prefer designer sandals and shoes. You can choose from a variety of heels like flat heels, platform heels, wedged heels, pencil heels, etc. Shoes usually mean sandals or open-toed shoes that can be plain or decorated, for example with beads or stones that match the dress.

Now comes in the Bag/Clutch, there are various options available in this category as well. This again depends on individual style. Matching the colour, embellishment and style of purse depends on your dress. A sequence Saree with a low cut blouse won’t go well with a big bag. A heavily embellished lehnga won’t go with a non-embellished bag. There are various kinds of bags to choose from: long string bags, clutch, the Indian batua etc. While choosing a bag make  sure you know:bag

  • What colour to buy
  • What style to choose from
  • What kind of embellishments
  • Material


Other accessories include a stole or shawl specially in winters. Indian brides generally decorate their hair with flower accessories and some go for hair clips, beads, semi precious stones etc.
