Your heart fell for the simple beauty of a minimalist plus size gown, but now you’re wondering how you can spice it up to make it your own. Fortunately, going big on the elegance doesn’t mean you need a whole new dress or feel regret that you didn’t raise your bridal budget for a fancier design in the first place.

In this blog post we share a few of our favorite accessories that do the job of making a simple plus size wedding dress really pop. Let’s dive in!

Head pieces, tiaras, flowers…oh my!

One of the best ways to ramp up the elegance with a simple gown is to simply choose an exciting headpiece to pair with your hairstyle. The beauty of this is that you can get as creative as you desire.

For boho themed weddings, flower crowns or a flower headpiece is the perfect way to add a pop of color. If you’re having a country/farm theme, don’t be afraid to don a wide-brimmed hat complete with a colorful ribbon or flower arrangement tucked into the band.

If you want to stick to traditional, veils are also versatile. Choose a veil with a scalloped hem or add embellishments for a bit of fun sparkle.

Go big with your jewlery

For a simple dress, don’t be shy with your jewlery pieces. This is the perfect opportunity to adorn your pretty neck with a statement necklace, which is enough to supply the WOW you need. 

Earrings are a bit more tricky. It really depends on the type of hairstyle you go with. Generally, if you are donning an up-do, then long, dangly earrings are recommended. For hair worn down, stick to studs. 

Of course- anything goes and when it comes down to it, you are the boss of your bridal look! Therefore, get as creative with your jewlery as you desire- it’s an easy way to make a simple wedding dress shine.

Make that dress sparkle!

If you really want to glam up your wedding dress, you can’t go wrong with embellishments. Whether its pearls, rhinestones, or beads, embellishments are easy to add, especially since you can sew them anywhere onto the dress and it’ll look incredible.

If you’re sew-savvy, adding embellishments is fairly easy. You can use a hot glue gun or sew them onto your neckline, bodice, hem, or sleeves.

Sequins or fringe are unique choices if you’re having a vintage themed wedding.
