5 Figure-flattering Accessories for Plus-size Brides

Hairstyles and Headpieces

Your hair is an accessory? Sure, it is! The right hairstyle on your wedding day can shed pounds off your look, making you glow and appear slimmer. Since there are many options out there, do your research to see what will fit your face shape the best. Tricia Parker from Aria Salon in Alpharetta, Ga., says, "If your face is round, it's best to create volume at the crown, elongating your face and making it look slimmer. Also, to create a longer neckline and torso, wear your hair off your neck." Check out hairstyles of celebrities with a similar face shape to yours, or upload your picture to a makeover site to see how certain hairstyles actually look on you!

When deciding how you'll wear your hair, don't forget to take into consideration the style of your dress. If you're wearing a strapless gown with a beautiful neckline, you may want to wear your hair up to show off that part of your dress! For simple, breezier gowns, wavy hair that cascades down your back looks fresh and relaxed.

You can also wear headpieces to add a little bling to your 'do. Try a sparkly brooch, silk flower or crystal hair comb with matching earrings to accentuate your hairstyle.
