"The Only Thing that Separates Us from the Animals Is Our Ability to Accessorize"

The title of this post is also one of my favorite lines from the movie, Steel Magnolias. And yes, accessorizing is extremely important to completing any look. So, for brides, it can't just be all about the dress. Very carefully, appropriate accessories should be selected to compliment her gown as well as her hair. Even accessories that may be barely seen (such as shoes, garters and undergarments) are eminently significant. And don't forget those little frills and yummies we all love just for being commemorative of the short-lived time in which one is allowed to use the title of "bride."

Take a look at two accessory works in progress, courtesy of me and my love affair with Polyvore:
