Jewelry is a key element in completing your perfect bridal look. Your accessories have the power to make or break your look if you don’t pick them wisely. Don’t let your jewelry steal the spotlight that should be on your dress, or you.
Less is more.
The first commandment for picking out your wedding jewelry: Don’t go overboard. No matter how tempting it is to load up you don’t want to risk letting your accessories outshine you. Keep “less is more” as your mantra and stick with a few key pieces rather than accessorizing every part of your body.
Match your metals to your dress.
Can’t decide between silver and gold jewelry? Let the color of your gown guide your choice.
If your gown is white: This bright hue looks prettiest with platinum or silver pieces.
If your gown is ivory: Gold jewelry will best enhance this creamy shade.
If your gown is champagne: Gold jewelry will complement the warm tones in this very light beige color. If you’re putting together an antique-inspired look, burnished silver with rhinestones also works well.
Consider your dress’s neckline.
Your gown’s décolletage will play a role in framing your face. Help it do its job by selecting jewelry that pairs perfectly with your dress.
The most important thing about picking the perfect pieces for your wedding gown is they should be a reflection of you. If you’re not comfortable wearing big, chandelier earrings, stick to studs. Love the way you look in a lariat necklace? Go for it! If you’re happy in all your accessories, you’ll feel confident and that’s the best
