The truth: a little bling can take your debut look from blah to breathtaking. Below are some tips to help you master the art of accessorizing for your special day. 

Check the Cut and Embellishments On Your Dress
If your dress is super beaded, go for dainty accessories. On the other hand, if your gown is pretty bare, up the glam factor with chunkier statement accessories. Also consider other elements of your gown, like the neckline and sleeves so that they won't clash with your necklace or bracelets.

Consider Your Hairstyle
Make sure your hairstyle suits your headpiece, if you plan on wearing one. An updo is a good option if you'll don a tiara, since it will hold the tiara snugly in place. If you'll be wearing earrings, make sure that your 'do shows off your ears, too. 

Resist the Urge to Wear Everything At Once
Yes, YOLO, but that doesn't mean you should wear all your accessories in one night. Instead, opt for a few smart pieces that make you look glam, not gaudy. The last thing you want is to be mistaken a Christmas tree on your birthday.

Make Sure the Pieces Complement One Another
Your accessories don't have to match, but they should look like they belong together. Stick to one metal if you can. Mixing metals can be tricky, but if you decide to do so, make sure that the pieces can still create a cohesive look.

Add Drama through Your Shoes and Bag
Your shoes and bag will also contribute to the stunning effect of your ensemble, so don't forget to think about them! Opt for ones withtexture or embellishments for a dramatic look. If you want, you may also go for shoes and bag in colors that contrast nicely with your dress.
