Choosing your bridal jewelry
There are many intricate details that go into planning your wedding look. Of course, we would automatically assume that the dress is everything, but it is the jewelry you used to enhance your dress and style.
Picking your jewelry is just as important as picking the dress itself. It is a great way to add your style to your special day. With so many choices, here are a few tips to help you accessorize your perfect day.
Less is more
Don’t overdo it! No matter how much you love sparkling and bling. Keep this mantra in the back of your mind while picking out your jewelry. You don’t want to risk going overboard and allowing your jewelry to take your shine on your big day.
Match your Metals
It is important to know that matching your jewelry to the color of your dress matters. The color of your dress is how you decide to go with either gold or silver. A White gown is always best represented by platinum and silver pieces to enhance the bright hue. An Ivory color dress is best suited for gold or rose gold to bring out the creamy color. Champagne is another common shade of white that many choose from because it works well with different tones and colors. It matches with just about anything piece of jewelry whether it is rose gold, platinum or gold. This is something to think about when picking out your dress as well.
Pair with your neckline
Your gowns decolletage is the main focal point when matching your jewelry to your dress. It is the first thing people see when they see you. It should hold a strong statement to tie your style together.
V-Neck– Is a common cut because it is so versatile that it was made for decoration. You can pair it with a pendant, chocker or both if they are delicate enough to layer. If you go bold with this decolletage decoration, it is best to take it light and dainty for your earring.
Sweetheart or Strapless- This cut was made to show off and enhance your natural neckline. You don’t need to add any decolletage decoration nor should want to. It would look more appropriate to get with bigger, chandelier-like earrings. Maybe even add a bracelet instead.
Halter or Reverse Halter- This one mirrors the same rules of the strapless. The halter is your decolletage decoration, and to add anything to it would clash rather than enhance. It is probably best to add more bling to your hair or veil.
All rules from above still apply when adding gems. If you choose to add gems to your bridal jewelry, make sure that all your pieces match in some way or another. Think of something blue when adding color to your jewelry. This is a fun way to incorporate color into your look is through the gems that your wear. Beautiful sapphires are a gorgeous option and traditionally complements all shades of white. If you already have something blue pick something that resembles your personality like your birthstone or pearls.
Last but not least don’t get overwhelmed. If you still cannot find the perfect pieces, you can custom design a new family heirloom.
