Pretty Little Things
Think nothing could make your gown lovelier? Think again. These amazing accessories take any look from beautiful to breathtaking.
An elegant dress goes ultraglam thanks to fluttery ostrich plumes and sparkly touches. Here, Jenny Packham's "Santorini" shrug tops the designer's "Anise" gown. Jimmy Choo's "Cosma" clutch and pumps complete the dazzling picture.
Most brides wear their gowns just once, but a great evening bag -- especially one with a timeless shape -- is something to have and to hold again and again.
