We shopped the city for the most trend-forward accessories and discovered that many brides are forgoing necklaces and instead choosing ornate earrings, hair pieces and bracelets to accent their look.

Bonus: Even if you’re not the bride, you’ll find ideas here to add dazzle to almost any outfit.

These headbands and tiaras offer alternatives to traditional veils. Consider your hairstyle, neckline and overall wedding vibe when selecting. From top: floral clip (Schaffer’s, $90); jeweled tiara (Dornink, $113); satin headband (Bridal Boutique, $175); feathered headband (Dornink, $60).
