Your Ultimate Guide To Accessorizing Bridesmaid Dresses

Sometimes the best part of putting an outfit together is the final touches - that moment when you put on the right jewelry to go along with it! Brides and bridesmaids have an especially fun opportunity to shine when it comes to weddings. From hairpieces to earrings, everything can be coordinated to fit the bride or bridesmaids’ styles.

Our first piece of advice is to let the bridesmaids decide on their accessories for the opportunity to let their personalities shine. Brides should have some say in the matter of course, but stick with some general guidelines (like pearls over crystals, so you won’t have any crazy surprises).

If everyone is wearing the same dress, having the bridesmaids find their own accessories will give them the option to personalize according to their unique style. You can decide if you want everyone in stud earrings, but let them choose the final details! Not only is choosing accessories fun for the bridesmaids, but it can help accommodate their budgets and take pressure off their wallets.

Bridesmaid Jewelry for the Wedding (& Gifts!)

If you as the bride do have a specific piece of jewelry in mind, choose it as a bridesmaid gift! Not only is this a polite way to have them wear exactly what you want, but your bridesmaids will love it. (We love bridesmaid gifts, too! Check out our favorite 50 ideas here). Below are our favorite choices for bridesmaid jewelry so that you can gift your gals or give them inspiration for their own looks.

Cute Bridesmaid Getting Ready Outfits

Getting ready together as "Team Bride" is one of those iconic moments of the wedding. Often, photographers will capture these special moments together on film - so although you're not quite ready yet, you'll want your crew to look cute! Below are some of our favorite choices for bridal party getting ready outfits.

Satin Bridesmaid Robes with Lace

These satin bridesmaids robes feature lace, and we love how they look! Since every bridal party looks different, we make sure that our robes come in standard size (fits size 00 to 12) and plus size (size 14-24). We also consider how important coverage is when photos are being taken - so our satin bridesmaid robes are a bit longer than most to keep your girls feeling comfortable!

Bridesmaid Pajama Set: Button Up Shirt & Shorts

We love how cute these bridesmaid pajama sets look! They are made of silky soft materials, and best of all, they'll help your bridal party look cute in getting-ready photos. The button-up shirt on this bridesmaid pajama set will prevent anyone from messing up their hair or makeup as they change. These bridesmaid pajamas will also probably turn into a solid go-to after the wedding as well, which is always a plus when considering which bridesmaid getting ready outfits to purchase.

Bridesmaid Hair Accessories

If you've already got enough wedding jewelry for your bridesmaids, there are other ways to make them sparkle! Bridesmaid hair accessories are the perfect way to make a hairstyle stand out, no matter if the hair is worn down or up. Here are a few of our favorite wedding hair accessories. 

Pearl Bridesmaid Headband

We think this pearl bridesmaid headband is so gorgeous! It makes a perfect bridesmaid hair piece with its pearls and sparkles woven into the wreath. And, it comes in three colors so you can best match your color scheme - pink, black, and white! We also think this bridesmaid headband would be fitting for a maid of honor.

For something a little extra fun, we recommend these bridesmaid hair clips for the bachelorette party or during hair and makeup.
