Wedding Wednesday: Time to Accessorize!

As girls, we know that the secret to throwing together a great outfit is not what you wear—but how you accessorize. From handbags to hairpieces to jewelry to killer shoes, accessories coyly flaunt a taste of your personality. So why not carry a little of your fabulousness into your wedding?

You’re wearing those sassy pink pumps under your wedding dress, so tease that flirtacious color throughout the reception. That peacock feather hairpiece that shows off your trendy side? Makes for a great addition to your cake.
We love these cranberry-accessorized escort cards from Project Wedding, the perfect touch for a winter wedding.

We just can’t get enough of the creative juices of this Real Wedding (also thanks to ProjectWedding)‚Äîlook at how they used pinwheels to accessorize his boutonniere, decorate the space, and accent their place cards.

And finally, we are gushing overthis California ranch wedding cake (from Style Me Pretty), whimsically accessorized with owls and buttons that you can see snatches of throughout their wedding decor. It’s these little touches that make your theme more memorable‚Äîand lets guests know a little more about you!

And with the holiday season coming up, you can boost holiday cheer (and brownie points from your boyfriend, friends and family) by accessorizing your gifts, too. The trick is to match the accessory outside to the gift inside. Put a cute cookie cutter on the outside of the Kitchenaid for your mom. Warm fuzzy socks to go with that to-die-for chenille sweater your best friend’s going to love. A video game for the Wii you got him. You get the idea‚Äîand when you put that present under the tree a week earlier, your friends and family will be dying to unwrap it (and if your K. – you actually will unwrap it early and hope nobody notices!).
