Wedding day fashion is all about the dress (and rightly so), but all the little accents like shoes, your bouquet, and jewelry will also be an important part of your look. When it comes to bridal jewelry, there are endless options out there, so many, in fact, that shopping may seem like an impossible task. Don’t get overwhelmed, though! We have some helpful tips to help you choose something that will make your wedding look feel complete.
Complement Your Dress
Your wedding dress is probably one of the first things you picked, and it’s going to be the center of attention (second only to you, of course). You should pick jewelry that works with your dress, rather than competes with it.
If you chose an ornate dress, such as one with a lot of intricate lace, sparkly bead work or a sparkling belt, you’ll want simple, classic jewelry pieces that don’t clash with the details of your dress. Traditional pearl stud earrings
, a string of classic pearls
or a simple pearl pendant necklace
, and maybe a single classic bracelet
will help to complete your look beautifully without pulling focus from your gorgeous dress.
If you chose a more classic, less ornate or non-beaded dress, you can use your jewelry to add sparkle and flair! Chandelier earrings or a larger or bolder necklace
will add that touch of light and vibrancy to your wedding outfit.
Let Your Personality Shine
When you were shopping for wedding dresses, did one style speak to you? Jewelry can show your personality in the same way. Is your style elegant and timeless? Then maybe you’re looking for a diamond pendant
or a pearl necklace
; something classic that you can re-wear again and again. Something lovely and timeless that you can pass down to your daughter for her wedding day. Are you more of a punk-rock princess? How about a modern choker that will add an elegant edge to your wedding look? You may want to consider unique designs such as drape-down-the-back necklaces or cuff bracelets. And remember that not everything on your wedding day has to be white. If it fits your style, you could incorporate colorful gemstones such as rubies or sapphires (something blue, anyone?). If you’re looking for inspiration, consider incorporating your wedding colors. Your wedding jewelry is going to be in your wedding photos and your jewelry box for a long time, so it should be something that feels right and that you love.
