The bride’s outfit is often the most colourful and ornate of any at the wedding. But while many brides choose to accentuate their attire with bold necklaces or huge bouquets, some like to keep things simple by adorning their outfits with just one or two brooches. They’re small enough to draw attention without being overwhelming, and they add a special touch that makes your outfit stand out in all the right ways. Let’s look at some tips for wearing wedding brooches in Australia. Wear it by itself One option is to simply wear the brooch by itself. If you’re not sure how to wear your new wedding brooch, start with something simple. Try wearing it with your dress and see how it looks. If you like the way it looks, great! If it complements the dress without standing out too boldly, this is perfect for a wedding. Wear brooches above the waistline A brooch can draw attention to your eyes and neck, which is a great way to make sure that everyone notices you. Of course, as the bride, you should be the centre of attention anyway. Typically, a brooch is worn above the waistline as it’s the place that makes the most sense. Towards the top of your dress is best, but again, ensure it doesn’t steal the show. If your brooch is more symbolic or sentimental than decorative, it can be worn below the waistline. However, depending on the dress style, there’s a good chance it will be obscured. So, above the waist is always the best place if you want your brooch to be noticed. Use it as a hair accessory Wedding brooches in Australia don’t need to be worn on a dress. They can form any part of your outfit that you like. Some people choose to use a hairpin and hold the brooch in place as a hair accessory. You can also use a barrette. If you’re feeling particularly bold and you’re wearing a veil, your brooch can form part of this too. Just make sure you use enough hair pins or other fasteners to ensure it doesn’t fall out. Choose just one or two brooches While you might be tempted to wear all of your favourite brooches at once, it’s best to stick with just one or two. You can wear more than one on your dress but that will probably look cluttered and busy, so keep it simple. Remember not to use them as a substitute for other jewellery. Wedding brooches in Australia look best with other accompanying pieces. Want the best wedding brooches in Australia?
