Veils and Headpieces: Veils remain a popular choice for many brides, adding a traditional yet ethereal touch to the overall appearance. Alternatively, opt for intricate headpieces or tiaras for a more modern flair.

Shoes: While comfort is key, don't compromise on style when it comes to bridal footwear. Whether you choose classic pumps, strappy sandals, or embellished flats, ensure your shoes complement your gown and allow you to dance the night away.

Scarves and Shawls: In cooler weather or for evening affairs, consider accessorizing with a stylish scarf or shawl. Not only do they provide warmth, but they also add an extra layer of sophistication to your ensemble.
