‘There are plenty of headwear alternatives to the traditional veil. Whether it’s a silk rosetta or a diamanté headband, go for something that suits your personality and complements your bridal look. Statement pieces are perfect for topping off a classic, understated gown, while a simple pair of pearl earrings balances a highly detailed ensemble.’ Natalie Chan
Trust your instincts when choosing accessories and be true to your personal style. If you don’t usually wear a lot of jewellery, keep it simple and stick to the basics: classic, earrings, a delicate bracelet or a bejewelled tiara.’ Anita Turner-Williams, Vinka Design
Jewellery should reflect your theme and complement your look while allowing your gown to steal the show. If you decide to wear a special piece such as your grandmother’s brooch or a gift from your groom, try it on with your wedding dress before you purchase other pieces – it may be enough on its own.’ Alma Wong, Alma J Bridal Boutique
‘If there ever was a time to wear statement jewellery, this is it: bridal embellishments can be a little more showy than pieces you’d normally wear, without them looking over the top.’ Anna Schimmel
For a high-impact look, select one statement piece. Accessorising with both a large tiara and chandelier earrings will overpower your gown.’ Jane Yeh
‘Use jewellery to add to your look and the feeling you want to create, whether it’s vintage or modern, be creative – if there’s a lovely old necklace that someone would love, you to wear but it doesn’t look right with your gown, try tying it around your wrist.’ Elizabeth Soljak, A La Robe.
