Once you’ve picked out your wedding dress, shoes, and hairstyle, it’s time to find the perfect bridal jewelry that will pull the whole outfit together. So, you have to ask yourself what type of jewelry do you choose?
The truth is, the jewelry you choose could make or break it with the look you’re trying to go for. Although traditional jewelry of pearls or diamonds are elegant and beautiful, if your dress is adorned with different types of stones, your pearls or diamonds may clash with your dress. So, you want to pick jewelry that’s going to complement your dress.
The best way to select your jewelry is to follow the theme of your wedding dress. If your gown has crystals or other clear adornments, you’ll want to pick diamonds, crystals, or other clear jewelry that goes with the theme. If your dress has pearls or white-colored bead or lacework, then you can wear pearls. You can also choose to go with colored jewelry if you have splashes of color in your dress.
Keep in mind what your best features are when choosing what types of jewelry to wear, whether it’s a necklace, earrings, bracelet, or something else. Bracelets are beautiful and can complement a wedding dress well, but if your eyes are your best feature, it’s better to avoid a bracelet that’s too extravagant because it will draw attention away from your eyes.
Wearing a tiara is something many brides today choose to do, and if that’s something you want for yourself, you need to choose the right one. The most common mistake is choosing an elaborate tiara that ends up overpowering the rest of your jewelry and the dress itself. Your gown should always be the focal point with your accessories simply amplifying it, so make sure you choose a delicate tiara that complements your dress and matches the rest of your bridal jewelry.
There’s nothing wrong with accessorizing your shoes as well to match your jewelry, as shoes are an important part of a bride’s ensemble. If you can add jewels without overdoing it or ruining them, go ahead and add a little sparkle to your wedding shoes.
The last piece of advice I’ll leave you with is to not overdo it. Remember that between your gown and your veil, you shouldn’t need much more than that to look the part of the beautiful bride. Jewelry is a good thing, but there is such thing as too much of a good thing. Subtlety is usually best when it comes to dressing for your wedding day, and you want to look elegant with simple pieces of jewelry.
