Choosing your Jewellery to complement your Wedding Dress
You’ve found your dream dress, so what Jewellery should you choose?
Hopefully, by now, you’ve chosen your wedding dress and you’ve got a pretty good idea about your hairstyle; so now you want to think about your jewellery.
There are no hard and fast rules about Jewellery accessories. However, whatever you choose, there are a few things to consider:
1. The cut of your Wedding Dress
If you’re wearing a high cut dress, ideally, it’s best not to wear a pendant. You won’t need one. It will be hard to see easily, and you’ll spend the whole day adjusting it. However, a pendant will nicely frame a dress with either a sweetheart, V-neck, boat neck, or Jewel neckline. Whereas, a traditional style necklace lends itself very well to a queen Anne, square, or scoop neckline.
2. Long or short Earrings
Earrings will be a personal choice. You may want to consider larger or longer earrings if you are wearing your hair down. Your earrings will be more easily seen, or perhaps just glimpsed. You can, of course, wear larger earrings with your hair up. It’s great to make a statement, especially if you aren’t wearing any other jewellery, and bold earrings are great for those high neckline gowns I mentioned earlier.
Studs are a great choice if you don’t normally wear earrings. You want to feel comfortable all day.
3. To wear a bracelet or not?
This is a question I often get asked. It’s the one piece of jewellery that is often overlooked. I do love a bracelet, and they can be quite captivating while drawing the eye down to the arm. A bracelet can also be a lovely replacement if you don’t want to wear a necklace.
4. Stay true to your style
It’s important that you are as comfortable as you can be on your wedding day. You’ll be doing a lot of walking, smiling, and socialising, so you need to be able to forget about your jewellery. So if you aren’t used to wearing a lot of jewellery, then don’t go all out on your wedding day. Keep it simple and elegant and you won’t go far wrong.
