Bridal jewelry is a wonderful way to personalize your wedding look and express your style. While so much of selecting the pieces will be based on your dress, as well as your personal taste and preferences, there are a few general considerations to keep in mind when choosing the perfect accessories to complement your gown.
The Gown’s Neckline:
• Consider pairing a strapless gown with a pair of dangling statement earrings, or a large, show-stopping necklace. Strapless gowns also work well with a new trend in bridal accessories: shoulder jewelry, an update on a traditional necklace that sweeps dramatically across your shoulders.
• A lower-cut neckline (such as a sweetheart, scoop, or v-neck) is often the perfect frame for a variety of necklace styles, from delicate chains to strands of pearls, pendant necklaces, and statement pieces.
• A gown with a low back can be accentuated with a back drop necklace, a style that features a long pendant which suspends from the back of the design.
• Gowns with higher necklines, or ones that are heavily embellished around the neckline and bodice, often work best with a pair of earrings, or an eye-catching bracelet.
The Gown’s Embellishment:
• Many gowns today are embellished in a sparkling array of rhinestones in metal settings, crystal beads, and pearls. Consider selecting jewelry that incorporates similar materials to tie your look together.
• If your gown is heavily beaded and embellished all over, consider selecting smaller, delicate pieces, or focusing on one jewelry design so that the eye is not pulled in too many different directions.
The Gown’s Color:
• White gowns often look best when paired with silver-tone metals.
• Gold has recently become a big trend in wedding accessories. It works particularly well with ivory, cream, and warm-toned dresses. If a yellow gold feels too bright, consider selecting mixed metal designs (pieces that combine elements in two different metals, such as gold and silver), or even rose gold.
• Your bridal jewelry is a great way to introduce color into your look. Consider selecting pieces with crystals, beads, or semiprecious stones that complement your wedding colors.
