When selecting the right accessories to wear to a wedding, consider complementary tones that enhance the colour of the dress. You can never go wrong with nudes or monochrome. Alternatively, pick a colour that is featured in your dress's pattern and match your accessories to that shade. This approach is certain to create a cohesive and fabulous feel.
