A lace choker

Adding a belt to your gown will help to emphasize your waist and will therefore enhance an hour-glass figure. Most styles of wedding gowns can be accessorised with an embellished belt or sash.
If a traditional veil isn’t for you, perhaps a wide-brimmed hat decorated with flowers may be more preferable. However, you don’t have to ditch the veil entirely if you don’t want to. Instead, attach it to the brim of the hat for a contemporary and stylish take on a traditional bridal accessory.
