Bridal jewellery adds the finishing touch to a bride’s wedding dress by enhancing the colour, sparkle and details in her complete look. It can be quite difficult to decide what bridal jewellery to opt for as sometimes it can be a case of too little or too much given the wrong style. So break down the process of choosing your bridal jewellery into the following stages.
Your Personal Taste
If you enjoy wearing jewellery on a day-to-day basis then it will not feel alien to have bracelets, earrings and a necklace on. But if you do not often wear jewellery, don’t feel you have to go out of your comfort zone on your wedding day by wearing too much. Also think about the colour metal you opt for. Do you suit silver, gold or rose gold coloured jewellery? What colour metal is the jewellery that you own?
When choosing your bridal jewellery there are often sets of jewellery you can purchase together to ensure everything looks a seamless image of perfection. Sometimes different pieces of jewellery may not all have the same finish or stone shapes. Often matching jewellery sets are available with either drop or stud earrings, a necklace and a bracelet.
If your wedding is to be styled like a party at Jay Gatsby’s mansion then consider wearing beautiful art deco inspired pieces. A crystal headband that secures with a ribbon paired with pearls and square-cut gems will give you instant 1920 glamour. But, if you instead are opting for a more bohemian wedding theme, tasselled jewellery, long flowing silver chains and minimalist bracelets work beautifully alongside a bohemian bride.
If you are fortunate enough to have gorgeous family pieces that have been handed down through you or your spoon to be in-laws’ family, then of course you must wear them on your wedding day. Not only is it sentimentally charming but also is appropriate with the tradition of having something old on your wedding day.
