There are two distinct types of women; those who wear jewellery, and those who don’t. There are, of course, those who can’t pull accessories off and wish they could, but let’s keep this simple.
When it comes to weddings, though, the categories become blurred. Because the women who spend their lives not wearing jewellery will have to do so. It can be daunting. As bride, all eyes will be on you. So, not only do you have to jump into the accessory world. But you also have to look fabulous doing it!
Of course, not every bride HAS to wear jewellery. But, there are a few reasons why you should. Remember that you are the centrepiece of the day. You are the icing on the wedding cake. And, no one goes crazy for plain icing. Brides who looks striking tend to be wearing jewellery. The added touch of sparkle will set everything alight.
So, that’s why. Now, let’s look at how. By following these steps, you can ensure your foray stays away from disaster.
Take inspiration from your rings
There is one set piece of jewellery in any wedding. Despite your tastes, wedding rings will feature in your day. Why not use these as inspiration for your other pieces? By opting for a jeweller like 77 Diamonds, you can get both your rings and outfit jewellery in the same place. Hence, you won’t have to worry about getting the style wrong. That will be dictated by the rings. All you need to do is find necklaces and earrings which match.
Less is more
This point is probably the most important. Failure to comply here could see you becoming the garish bride of your nightmares. You want to set your outfit alight, not blind people with your shimmer as you walk down the aisle. Less is always more, especially when it comes to wedding jewellery. A necklace and earrings are a must. You may also want to opt for a bracelet and tiara, but you shouldn’t take this any further.
It’s also worth keeping the less is more motto in mind when it comes to your colour scheme. You want colours which highlight your dress rather than taking away from it. As such, the only real option with a white dress is silver accessories. The subtle nature of the colour ensures no attention is taken from where it should be.
Consider the design of your dress
As important as it is to consider the colour of your dress, you should also think about design. This is especially relevant when it comes to the neckline. A plunging dress would look best with long necklaces. Yet, a dress with a high neckline would look best with a choker style piece.
Equally, a dress with short sleeves would suit a sizable bracelet, while long sleeves would mean you’re better with a subtle piece. Make sure to refer to your dress design throughout. Otherwise, you could find that nothing matches when your big day comes!
