When going to a formal dinner or gala event, there is no outfit more appropriate than a cocktail dress for ladies. And with some adornment and additional accessories, the dress will look even better. These are some helpful ideas which will show you the best way to dress up your dress, and look gorgeous when you go out in it.
Begin with lovely earrings. A cocktail dress is the ice cream, and in order to complete the sundae, you need great jewelry. A pair of drop earrings goes well with a cocktail dress. Select earrings which feature gemstones – genuine or faux – such as rubies and diamonds. If ever you need to justify purchasing such accessories, keep in mind that they are very fashionable now and will still be in the future, and can be paired with almost anything – including that little black dress.
Complement it with a matching necklace. A dress is best paired with appropriate earrings and necklace as accessories. These two go together! Your dress will draw more attention if only a necklace which is single stranded and has a diamond or stone is worn, rather than making yourself over dressed with heavy jewellery. To complement your cocktail dress, you can choose one with coloured stones or beads.
A bracelet is something you might consider wearing. Each person has their own style-bracelets might not be your thing. If you can wear them without discomfort, then they’re a great complement to any cocktail dress. If you are already wearing some bold jewelry, choose simple bracelets to wear with your outfit. You might prefer to wear either the necklace or bracelet, but not both. You can accessorize your wrist with a diamond or pearl bracelet which would give you sparkle, even better if your earrings match your bracelet.
Find the perfect soft purse. It’s never proper to attend a cocktail affair without the proper purse accessorizing your dress. Even a small one will be enough, as long as your lipstick, tissue and other just as small things will fit inside. Once more, stay with the overall theme. If your outfit features beads, choose a beaded clutch to complement your ensemble. The best match for your gemstone jewelry would be a sleek black clutch purse with a few rhinestones on it. Anything with a strap should be avoided. The goal is to make your dress and accessories look as classy as possible.
When my fiance and I set the date for our wedding, I started planning and shopping for all my accessories and wedding supplies, right away. I’m an online shopaholic, so, my first course of action was to hit the web. There were accessories and reception supplies that would help me to plan the most fantastic wedding and reception party ever, all on my computer. Starting with the beautiful invitations I chose, and finishing with the super wedding favors for our friends and family.
We had no problem choosing the theme we wanted for our wedding and reception, it had to be a beach theme. The beach has been a special place for us and our friends ever since we were kids.
I ordered beach invitations right away so they would be on their way to our friends and family, first thing. All the guests we invited said they would be there and that they can hardly wait to watch us walk down the aisle. My bridal accessories were the next thing on my wedding list that I would need. Shopping online has almost become a hobby for me, but even I couldn’t believe what a wonderful selection they had to offer. I saw a gorgeous tiara and hair comb in the selection, and I just had to have them. Not only did I find the perfect hair accessories, but my wedding jewelry too. I looked at all the jewelry and found the necklace and earring set I wanted to wear with my wedding dress. The pearls and crystals on the necklace set really added to the elegance of my wedding dress.
Great selection of bridal fashion supplies and the low cost really made this shopping worth while. I also bought a few items I can use while on our honeymoon. Even though we were getting married on the beach, I insisted on a floor length wedding dress. There were satin summer dresses for my bridesmaids and my flower girl, that had a knee length hemline. Everyone of them looked stunning and my flower girl was so adorable.
There were tiki torches and those little white Christmas lights everywhere and a dance floor my fiance had fixed there. I had sailboat place card holders and placed seashells and starfish all around the tables. I didn’t want to give our guests some useless wedding favor that would be stuck in a drawer and forgotten, so we gave them beach themed picture frames as thank you gifts. Everyone seemed to like the gifts they received.
Our wedding table was beautifully set with beach themed champagne flutes, little beach tea lights and lovely beach themed candles and holders. All the supplies and accessories for our wedding reception was decorated in an ocean side motif, and so was our cake topper. We had a cake topper of a young couple holding each other as they walked along the beach. I’m so glad they had all the supplies and bridal accessories we needed to plan the perfect beach wedding and reception. For those that weren’t into seafood, we made sure we had plenty of steaks and chicken for them. We danced to some really great tunes and enjoyed the fantastic foods that were prepared and just had one heck of a beach party. I kinda hated to leave the party for our honeymoon, everyone was having such a great time.
