Need help with your wedding dress choice or looking for information on bridal fashion? Confetti has tips and advice on wedding rings, bridesmaid dresses and all your wedding fashion needs.
You’ll want to look like a film star on your wedding day so your choice of wedding dress and accessories is almost as important as your choice of groom (well, ok not quite that important but it’s up there…)
Bridal gowns, bridesmaids and more
Finding the dress is perhaps one of the most exciting parts of your wedding planning. It’s a real rite of passage to go wedding dress shopping with your mum, sister or best friends. Trying on enormous meringues and slinky silky numbers is so much fun, as is planning which veil will match with it and whether or not to wear a tiara. We’ve got the lowdown on dress shapes and styles and all the names explained so you’ll be able to know your princess neckline from your sweetheart and your mermaid from your fishtail (actually that’s the same style!) We’ll help you choose the right dress for your shape, colour and style. We’ll show you a vast collection of beautiful dresses in a range of styles in our fabulous Wedding Dress Showcase and Dress Search. We’ve also got tips on how best to dress your bridesmaids and the men in your bridal party. Check out our Bridesmaids Showcase and Bridesmaids Dress Search and Men’s Fashion Showcase and Men’s Fashion Search.
Jewellery and accessories
Your wedding jewellery is also a very big part of your look on the day as you’ll need to buy wedding rings but may also want to invest in a very special necklace, earrings or pretty jewelled hair accessories for the day. There’s a lot more to consider when it comes to wedding fashion, such as your bridal lingerie, wrap or jacket, wedding shoes and optional additions such as bridal clutch bags or even sophisticated long gloves. We’ll show you which veil, headdress or tiara is best for you or whether flowers in your hair or even a fabulous fascinator would be more you. See our Jewellery and Tiaras Showcase and Search. Your bridal lingerie and shoes complete the look but are no less important, even if it may be just the groom who sees them! Have a browse in the Lingerie and Accessories Showcase and Search.
