On your wedding day you want to feel comfortable, confident, and stylish. Some people wait until they've picked their outfit first, and then choose what accessories will compliment it. Other people fall in love with some shoes, or jewelry, or another accent piece, and let that inspire the rest of the look. What part of your wedding day look did you decide on first?

Did you choose your outfit first?

    The dress should come first, in my opinion!

    I definitely chose my dress first to know what style of accessories would match my dress.

    I chose my dress 1st because I took a chance and ordered it from Ali Express. Best decision ever, my dress arrived and was perfect. We’ve had time to do some final tweaks and added purple in my crinoline. I always knew long before getting engaged that I wanted to wear converse, just wasn’t sure on the colour. After picking everything I chose a very nice purple pair.

    I would say pick the dress first, because that's probably the first thing people would notice. I said yes to my dress before I even started planning my wedding Smiley smile I had so much fun shopping for it~

    Dress was picked first. I have shoes but all the other accessories I am really struggling on. I am hoping once I have my first fitting it will help me decide what I want.

    Absolutely dress first, then accessories. I actually don't have either but I won't look for accessories until I've got the dress I want lol.

    We wedding dress plan fell through (unreliable seamstress and mixed signals) so 6.5 weeks from the wedding and no dress at this point. Ordered some online (from BHLDN) in various sizes so fingers crossed something fits well as they’re schedule to arrive three weeks before the wedding. Haha Worse comes to worse, I’ll borrow my best friend’s old wedding dress. It’s a good thing I’m fairly laid-back about this wedding!! so, I had accessories first I guess!

    My shoes were first, then this weekend we found a dress that will really complement the shoes! Now I am looking at hair accessories!

    The dress was first. From there I had a better idea of the feel I was going for for accessories and such.

    I found an accessory first as my mum wanted me to wear her veil and I needed to make sure my dress would work with it.

    Definitely dress first. Whether you wear big or small earrings, necklace or no, tiara or hair pin, long veil or short.... I think that all depends on the dress. I'm still not sure what style shoe I even want to wear... It's my one regret of a winter wedding, that I can't wear glam sandals.

    I chose my dress very early on, and bought sandals and hair accessories later, but I still don't have anything else. And I'm not sure I actually want anything else - I'd like earrings, but I haven't been able to wear any for longer than 30 minutes lately.

    I had my dress for about a year before I stared looking at accessories. When I did start looking at accessories I was constantly referring back to pictures to make sure it was a match!
