Bridal stockings with a suspender belt to match your wedding dress can create the ultimate vintage pin-up look you desire for your wedding day. Your stockings should be either white or ivory to match your wedding dress if you are going for a traditional look. For a more modern outfit, try getting as close a nude to your natural skin tone as you can.
Bridal stockings are such a minute detail that when there is so much to organise for your big day, it would be so easy to overlook. But for your wedding day to run smoothly, it's the tiny little details such as your bridal stockings that need to be carefully considered, planned and perfectly put into place on the day. Your stockings should be either white or ivory to match your wedding dress if you are going for a traditional look. For a more modern aesthetic, try getting as close a nude to your natural skin tone as you can.
Which Bridal Hosiery Is The Best For You?
A simple pair of white stockings hitched up by a suspender belt create the perfect vintage pin-up look that so many brides desire for their big fairy tale day. However, if you are not experienced in the art of wearing stockings and suspenders, you may be surprised to find that they are more hassle than you thought. Or maybe not? Some women love the feel of wearing stockings and suspenders but others are not so keen, it's all about personal preference. You will never know until you try but if this is to be your first time wearing them, we would strongly urge you to try wearing them for a couple of days at least to get used to them. If you find that you like the look of stockings but don't like the feel of wearing a suspender belt, maybe you could give white or ivory hold-ups a try (sometimes called stay-ups)? They have the same visual appeal as stockings but without the hassle of attaching all those tricky suspender clips.
Bridal Stocking Styles
White or ivory stockings with a deep lace top can add a touch of feminine glamour to your wedding outfit. If you have chosen a simple, modern dress, some flat, plain topped stockings may be all the finishing touch you require. White or ivory, fully fashioned stockings are the real deal if it's a vintage look you are going for but they can be expensive due to the way that they are made. A pair of white or ivory stockings with a simple backseam will look exactly the same to any member of your wedding party, only you will know the difference.
