Every girl dreams of her perfect wedding dress. Going shopping for a bridal gown is a really exciting time, and when you find "the one", it can be a huge relief. There is still lots to do however, as you will still need to find the perfect shoes and accessories to match your gorgeous gown! It can be daunting to think about what kind of jewelry will best suit your wedding dress, so we've compiled a quick guide to help you choose your perfect bridal jewelry!
Different styles of necklines will require different styles of jewelry. Some will be complemented by a necklace, others are best offset by some beautiful earrings. If you have a very simple or classic gown which is strapless, you can often afford to add some drama with a statement necklace. Other gowns which feature a high or illusion neckline or which have a lot of embellishment around the neckline don't require a necklace; instead, a stunning pair of earrings will look ideal. The Annabelle earrings are classic and elegant, and will look perfect if you are wearing your hair up in a soft chignon.
Think about your overall wedding style as that may influence the kind of jewelry you wear. If you have chosen a vintage gown, then antique-style or pearl jewelry will be perfect. A modern sheath calls for equally elegant jewelry. A rustic wedding will be best complemented by warm colors of yellow gold and rose gold. This Laurel pendant is perfect for an autumn wedding with rustic and natural elements.
Head and Shoulders
Bridal jewelry is not just about necklaces, bracelets and earrings. More daring brides are choosing beautiful jewels to adorn their shoulders, backs and hair. We love this shoulder jewelry by Elsa Corsi from a styled photoshoot on WedLuxe.
Choose Your Metal
Of course, you will want to coordinate with the metal you are already wearing - your engagement and wedding rings! Bear the color of the metal in mind when choosing all other jewelry. Many of our beautiful bridal jewelry pieces at Shine Bridal are customizable and can be made in gold or silver with different colored stones to suit your requirements, such as these pretty Elsa earrings.
