When that special day arrives and you’re standing in front of all your friends and family saying “I Do” to the one you love, you want to make sure the bridal jewelry you choose compliments your dress. Even though most of the emphasis is placed on your wedding dress there are a few choice pieces of jewelry that can greatly enhance your overall look and bring it all together.
Don’t make the mistake of waiting until the last minute to choose your jewelry or you might end up with a lot of mismatched pieces that simply don’t look right together. The jewelry you choose can enhance your beauty and add that special touch but poorly chosen pieces will take away from it.
Tips for choosing bridal jewelry:
- Choose your dress first because you’ll need to match your jewelry to the dress in order to get the best look. The type of material, pattern and color will all help determine what type of jewelry would look the best.
- Consider the cut of the dress when deciding which type of necklaces to wear or whether or not to wear one at all. To give you an idea of what to look for, a strapless bodice will look stunning with a choker and V-necks look great with a solitaire necklace.
- The more embellishments the dress has, the less jewelry you should wear to avoid being overpowering. You don’t want the jewelry to take away from the design of the dress.
- The type of material and stones used to make your jewelry will create different looks. For example, wearing a pearl necklace and earrings to match will help to create an elegant look, while crystal jewelry adds a touch of sparkle and flare to your gown. Therefore, it’s important to know what type of look you want to portray when choosing your bridal jewelry.
Don’t let anyone pressure you into wearing something that doesn’t suit you personally. The jewelry you wear should match your personality and make you feel comfortable not someone else. If you’re wearing something that you normally wouldn’t wear or jewelry that makes you feel like everyone is staring at you for all the wrong reasons, it’s going to add to the stress by making you feel uncomfortable and nervous.
A well chosen collection of bridal jewelry can greatly enhance your look making you more graceful and elegant on this extraordinary day. For that reason, take your time and choose carefully. This is the one day that you can’t afford to make a fashion mistake.
