How to Choose Bridal Jewelry for Your Big Day

Follow a few key tips for selecting bridal jewelry that will add just the right amount of flair to your wedding day attire

Although it may not be the primary focus when putting together your wedding look, bridal jewelry plays a significant role in creating a cohesive and stunning aesthetic. So, once you’ve said yes to the dress, it’s time to decide how you’re going to accessorize it. Whether you’re wearing something borrowed or something new, here’s a bit of guidance on choosing the perfect pieces to ensure you look and feel your best on your special day.


Tips for Selecting Bridal Jewelry

Stay True to Your Style

While it’s easy to get caught up in current fashion trends, keep in mind that your bridal jewelry will be visible in all of your wedding photos. You don’t want to look back years later and regret your choice of accessories. Trends come and go, but your own style preferences are unlikely to change much over time. Therefore, it’s better to go with pieces that you’re truly drawn to and are a proper reflection of your personal taste. This will let your personality shine through and carry more sentimental value.


Don’t Over-Accessorize

Since you only get to wear your wedding dress once, you don’t want to pick jewelry that will take away from it. If you have too many accessories on or select really big and bulky pieces, it may compete with the dress rather than enhance its beauty. Generally, when it comes to bridal jewelry, wearing less is more effective at complementing the whole ensemble and presenting a timeless appearance.


Consider Your Dress Neckline

The neckline of your dress will be a major consideration when deciding on a necklace or whether you’re going to wear one at all. Dresses with a V-neck go well with a diamond drop necklace, whereas chokers and shorter necklaces are preferable for strapless and sweetheart necklines. Necklaces usually aren’t a good option for high necklines, halters, and those with a lot of embellishment details.


Match the Details

Though it’s not a rule all brides have to stick to, certain metals tend to pair better with specific dress colors. For example, it’s common to wear platinum, silver, or pearls with pure white fabrics and yellow gold with shades of ivory or champagne. Additionally, you want jewelry that matches your dress design as well as wedding décor. If you opt for a chic and elegant aesthetic, simple and sweet accessories will mesh best. Statement pieces work better for more contemporary and flashy weddings.
