When it comes to styling, we’re all about breaking the rules. But that doesn’t necessarily mean there aren’t tried-and-true tips to help you look your best, including for your big wedding day jewelry. If you need a little guidance when it comes to accessorizing your gown, we’ve gathered a couple of tips below!
1. More isn’t always more.
The first commandment for picking out your wedding jewelry: Don’t go completely overboard! No matter how tempting it is to follow the logic of “more is more!”, you don't want to risk letting your accessories outshine you. Instead, keep “less is more” as your mantra and stick with a few key pieces.
2. Matching Metals
Can’t decide between silver and gold jewelry? Let the color of your gown guide your choice.
If your gown is white: This bright hue looks prettiest with silver pieces.
If your gown is champagne: Gold jewelry will complement the warm tones in this very light beige color.
If your gown is blush: Rose gold! The pink cast in the metal will coordinate with the soft pink of the dress.
3. Consider The Dress Neckline.
If your dress has a sweetheart or strapless neckline: To create height and direct eyes to your smile, consider wearing a much shorter necklace. This style is making a comeback this year and looks timeless with this type of neckline.
If your dress has a halter or reverses halter: Focus your accessorizing on your hair by decorating it with pins.
4. Don’t Get Overwhelmed.
If deciding on your jewelry is starting to get more overwhelming than finding your dress, focus your search. Find one piece you absolutely adore and want to invest in, and wear that. Simple pearl or diamond studs are always timeless. Just be sure you don’t buy them as part of a set. While jewelry suites used to be go-to, modern brides avoid accessories that look too matchy-matchy.
5. Be yourself.
The most important thing about picking the perfect pieces for your wedding gown is they should absolutely be a reflection of you. If you're happy in your accessories, you’ll feel confident—and if you ask us, that’s the best accessory of all.
