A bride on her wedding day wants to look both beautiful and glamorous. The dress is, of course, the first step to achieving that look. The bridal jewelry she will wear is the icing on the cake. So you need some help deciding on the wedding jewelry theme? Here is a guide to assist you in finding that perfect wedding jewelry
Before anything else, it is most important to choose your dress The neckline and overall shape of your dress will help determine the style and design of your jewelry. It is good idea to use the neckline of your dress as a guide. Pair a strapless or straight-across neckline with a choker or gently sweeping necklace, a deep-V front is the perfect “frame” for an elaborate or dramatically shaped necklace, while a halter-style dress will look great with chandelier earrings and a bracelet.
A long, bias-cut satin dress will look sexy and elegant with artistic jewelry that moves with the flowing fabric- like long dangly earrings, or a vintage-looking lariat necklace. A more structured, traditional dress with a bodice, elaborate skirt and train will call for larger, more formal jewelry that will compliment your dress and stand up to all that fabric and lace. It is best to keep jewelry consistent with the style of your dress for a polished look, but remember to have fun and express your sense of self through your adornments!
Another item to consider is your hair accessories. Are you wearing a tiara? Not all women feel comfortable in a tiara, so there are other options available such as hair combs and hairpins or hair vines. These hair jewel accessories can accentuate your hairstyle without the over the top tiara. For women that love the idea of a tiara but still want that glitz, there are a wide variety of hairpins and hair jewels that will compliment your tiara on your wedding day. Some brides often remove their tiaras at the reception, but may still want some bling in the hair. Having some customized hairpins that coordinate with your tiara and bridal gown are the perfect way to accentuate your look without the use of a tiara throughout your entire special day.
