Choosing the perfect dress is only half the battle. Now it’s time for you to pick the perfect accessories! But where do you even begin?
Choosing bridal accessories doesn't have to be overwhelming. Accessorize and wear jewelry to add that personal touch to your wedding day look. You don't have to reinvent the wheel when it comes to completing your ensemble. You can trust your instincts if you follow our tips for choosing the right accessories!
Wearing Sentimental Family Pieces? Start With Those
It's fun to wear "something borrowed," but don't let your great-grandmother’s pearls or your aunt's bracelet fall by the wayside. Bringing a specific piece with you when shopping for dresses is a great idea! The last thing you want is to choose your accessories and then add this sentimental piece, only to find out that they don’t really complement each other.
Your Rings Don’t All Have To Match Flawlessly
You should already reflect your style in the other jewelry pieces you pick for your wedding and engagement. You don't have to match everything exactly. Metals don't have to match either. It's beautiful to wear gold with platinum engagement rings. All you need to do is make intentional choices!
Experiment With Things That Aren’t Comfortable for You
Choose your wedding look based on what works for you and what gives you the most confidence. Jewelry that isn't part of your usual style does not have to be bold. Don't be afraid to go all out on your favorites!
If you always wear stud earrings, consider wearing fancier stones! If you love bracelets, try some more glamorous ones. Try to step outside the box a little on your big day, but stay within your comfort zone!
Don’t Feel Like You Have To Follow Trends
In the wedding industry, trends are inevitable, so embrace the ones that appeal to you. In fact, this is half the fun! Therefore, don't follow a trend because it's all over social media if it's not right for you. Instead of letting trends dictate your choices, be inspired by them! When you look back on your decision years later, it is more important to choose based on your personal style and sentimentality.
Make Sure Your Necklace Complements the Neckline
A good rule of thumb is to choose a necklace that matches your dress' neckline. Strapless or sweetheart necklines look best with chokers or statement necklaces. When there is skin showing on your neckline, a necklace should sit on your skin, not the dress.
Mixing Metals Is Totally Okay
Platinum and silver go well with pure white dresses; yellow gold goes well with ivory and champagne dresses; rose gold goes well with blush dresses. It is inevitable that we will disagree from time to time! When it comes to metal tones and colors, you should trust your eye rather than the rules.
Make Your Veil the Center of Attention
When planning your wedding day look, it's important to have a focal point. A jewelry piece can be thought of as the icing on a cake. There's nothing like a gorgeous veil with beautiful appliques and texture, or a stunning statement necklace or pair of earrings! We have a great selection for you to look at once you book your appointment!
It's Always Possible to Change Things Up
You don't have to wear the same jewelry during your ceremony and reception. In spite of your statement veil, you can still wear sparklers at the reception, even if your statement earrings are not allowed. Furthermore, you can change your accessories for the reception along with your second look dress!
