The wedding dress design has been sorted. But to accomplish the desired overall fabulous look, the bride has other little details to consider.

UNDERGARMENTS: To ensure the line of the completed gown is true dressmakers and designers worth their salt insist that all fittings the bride has for the wedding dress are carried out while she is wearing the undergarments she will wear on the wedding day.

Underwear and lingerie specialists have a range of options to suit any gown and figure. Shapewear also plays a significant part in the bridal industry, these garments providing control and shape, the result a stunning sleek line for the gown.

HEADWEAR: Long veils falling from the back of the head are a popular option. They are often worn for the ceremony alone. Brides seeking additional adornment can opt for delicate white feather fascinators (some with net fashioned into a ``birdcage'' veil that falls alluringly over the eyes) small elegant crystal tiaras or crystal clasps.

JEWELLERY: Many brides skip headwear, opting instead for chandelier drop earrings or a necklace that suits the wedding dress's neckline for adornment.

FOOTWEAR: Stunning bridal footwear is available in plain white or silver court styles to sequinned sandals and low pumps. For something different choose a pop colour for the footwear to be worn with the wedding dress. Just remember the golden rule. Bridal footwear should be worn at fittings to ensure the correct hem length.

TIP: When selecting headwear and jewellery brides should make sure they suit her hairstyle, the wedding theme and the gown.
