Your wedding day is one of the most beautiful and most memorable days of your life and since you’re the center of attention, you want to shine like there is no tomorrow. What nobody tells you beforehand though, is that the most difficult part starts after choosing your wedding dress. How do you complete your wedding look with the right accessories? We help you pick out the perfect jewelry to match your gown and give you some tips and tricks you can use as a guidance in the build-up to your wedding day. By doing so, we hope to give your wedding look some extra sparkle.
1. Keep it simple
The first rule when shopping for the wedding jewelry set of your dreams is not letting yourself go completely. Don’t go overboard. It is tempting to accessorize every single part of your body, but on your wedding day, you don’t want your jewelry to outshine you. Are you wearing an embellished beaded wedding gown? Keep “less is more” and “keep it simple” as your mantras and stick with a few key pieces, such as an elegant bracelet or a unique pair of earrings instead of combining a tiara with earrings, a necklace and a bracelet. Or choose a timeless and minimalist bridal jewelry set. Are you wearing a more moderate dress, a statement necklace can be a stylish and elegant addition taking your wedding outfit to the next level.
2. In balance with your wedding gown
Your wedding dress is the star of the evening but your jewelry needs to complement your gown in the most beautiful way. Can’t decide between silver or gold? Let the color or your dress guide your choice. A radiant white dress fits best with silver or white gold. If your gown is champagne or ivory, the warmth of yellow gold jewelry makes the color even pop more. Is your dress leaning towards a blush color, try rose gold bridal jewelry since the color will nicely coordinate with the soft pink undertones of your dress.
3. Consider your dress’s neckline
The neckline of your dress has an important role to play when it comes to wedding jewelry. Not every neckline fits every necklace and your gown’s décolletage also plays a role in framing your face with earrings. Does your gown have a high neckline? Forget necklaces and start looking at a timeless, minimalist pair of earrings or a gorgeous, unique and personal bracelet. Are you planning on wearing a strapless dress or one with a sweetheart neckline, than a round, subtle and minimalist necklace does the trick by creating balance. If your dress has a V-neck, opt for a minimalist, teardrop pendant creating more length, accentuating the curves of your gown. Are you a daredevil showing off a dress with a low back, a back necklace gives your look a more subtle, romantic and elegant twist.
4. Assorti, c’est fini
In the past, bridal jewelry sets needed to fit with identical pieces. Nowadays, however, we notice this trend is outdated. While combining pearl earrings with a pearl necklace used to be fresh and hip decades ago, it seems overwhelming and a bit too much today. Try to mix and match pieces with the different textures and similar undertones, and combine gemstones and diamonds of different colors to create a refreshing and more nonchalant whole.
5. Be yourself
The most important thing about picking the perfect pieces for your wedding gown is that they should be a reflection of the real you. Do you never wear earrings, than don’t wear them on your wedding day either. Not a big fan of necklaces, leave them at home at your own wedding. The options in wedding jewelry are endless, so finding a jewelry set fitted to your taste is the most important part. If you’re happy in all your accessories, you’ll feel confident and look the most beautiful version of you anyway. In doubt about which items to pick? Always opt for simple, minimalist and timeless. These pieces can be kept a lifetime and will remember you about your wedding day every single time you wear them.
6. Invest in sustainable jewelry
A thorn in the side of every wedding look is a cheap set of jewelry. Treat yourself with beautiful, sustainable jewels on your wedding day and opt for gorgeous pieces where you’ve always dreamt of but never dared to invest in. The rule also applies here: when in doubt, go for timeless and minimalist.
