#1 Make a statement. 

The less-is-more mantra doesn’t apply here. Take inspiration from Marchesa and go big on your accessories. Here, statement baubles are juxtaposed with delicate lace for a stark contrast.


#2 Pile it on. 

A long layered statement necklace that echoes the shape of your neckline also serves to elongate your torso.

#3 Go Gold 

The easiest way to add instant glamour? Opt for a touch of gleaming metallic shine.

For the evening, don this gorgeous crown with equally statement earrings and you’ll have all eyes on you.

#7 Shine on 

For a glamorous bridal look, makeup is key, whether you’re going for a crimson red lip, nude lips or smokey eyes. Add extra oomph with an embellished veil.


#8 Layer on

 Add panache to a sophisticated gown with a dramatic ruffled overskirt. Get your dressmaker to design a detachable one so you can take it off to switch up your look.
