You’d think that the gown would be the most difficult part of your wedding ensemble to shop for, but honestly, finding the right wedding accessories can be even harder. Most boutiques only carry a limited selection from a few different lines, so if you’re looking for something specific, you may need to schedule accessories appointments at a few different places before you score your dream veil or headpiece. There’s also online shopping, which, yes, can be risky, but just make sure the company is reputable and has a reasonable return policy in case the item arrives and doesn’t live up to the photos on the website. We think it’s easier to start with an accessories designer that you like and search out a retailer that carries them, instead of blindly booking appointments and hoping for the best. Don’t know where to start? We’ve rounded up some of our favorite bridal accessories lines to make your job a little easier.
