After you’ve picked the perfect dress, it’s time to pick the perfect accessories to go with that dress! Whether you want a cathedral length veil, a modern overskirt, or even a fun jacket, picking out which accessories to wear to highlight the best parts of your dress can be a challenge. But not to worry! With our help, we’ll show you the best pairings for how to style your dream dress.
What Accessories to Wear With Your Wedding Dress
Veils are as synonymous with weddings as the dress itself! Veils add a touch of romance and tradition that no other accessories can bring. But with so many choices of lengths, styles, and adornments, the choice as to which veil to wear is endless!
First up, 3D veils. One of our favorite veils is long and flowy and is embellished with hundreds of hand-cut 3D flowers. This veil is perfect if you want to highlight the floral lace design of your dress. You can wear it with any silhouette, really, because the 3D flowers fall gently down the length of the veil as if the bride has walked through a field of wildflowers and the foliage has been picked up by her dress.

Another great option for the modern bride wanting to add a traditional veil to her look is a scalloped edged veil. Instead of just being cut in the traditional round shape, this veil is cut to mimic the scallop edged of the hand-cut lace trim that it is adorned with. What makes this veil even more special, is that it is lined with decadent bugle beads for added sparkle.

For the bride who truly wants to change up her look from ceremony to reception, an overskirt is a perfect choice. Brides can easily wear an overskirt for the ceremony and then take it off, revealing a whole new look and silhouette, for the reception. A total win-win!
You can see how an overskirt really changes up your look completely! We love this overskirt from Stella York because it feels full and floaty. It’s also embellished with matte lace floral motifs for just a touch of added drama and whimsy.
Of course, you can go with something on the gossamer side of things! This overskirt from Essense of Australia is perfect for the boho bride. It is light, airy and so very boho. It highlights the gown’s natural silhouette while still giving you a style that can easily go from day to night.

Jackets are another cool accessory that allows you to change up your look from ceremony to reception. One of our favorites is this cape-style jacket from Martina Liana. The Juliet Jacket is made of paper-thin tulle that has been embellished with 3D flowers and shimmering beading. It falls gracefully over the bride’s shoulders and comes just to the elbows, ending with an organically finished hemline.
If you have always dreamed of a royally-inspired walk down the aisle, then maybe a detachable train is for you! Easily attached to the back of most dresses, this detachable train from Martina Liana is a showstopper. It adds length and drama to your ceremony look and can be removed with clasps or buttons for your reception.
