Accessory’s For Your Wedding Day

Your wedding day is one of the most important days in your life. All eyes are on you. It is fascinating as well as a bit scary and intimidating. For brides that are not accustomed to being the center of attention it can be a bit overwhelming. Every detail is important on your wedding day especially when it comes to how you look and feel. When you are a bride that is not used to pulling accessories together matching jewelry with a dress as well as a hair style and appropriate make up can be a tremendous stress.

When it comes time to think about accessories especially your wedding jewelry there will be a lot to think about. Even without a lot of practice in purchasing jewelry with a little guidance you can find something that you are in love with and that is stunning with your dress, hair and makeup.

First think about any bridal jewelry or pieces that you have been handed down. Often time's sentimental jewelry is the best option to start with when considering bridal jewelry. A piece of jewelry that has been handed down from generation to generation often changes to match the bride. It is amazing how it happens. If you don't think you can wear the same earrings your grandma wore when she walked down the aisle in a lengthy lace gown with your strapless tulle you may want to reconsider. Check it out all together before you discount any heirloom piece you may be considering.

No matter what style dress, unless of course you are wearing a high neck or halter, can be accessorized with a simple necklace. If you have an incredibly intricate wedding dress choose a super simple necklace. If your dress is incredibly plain you can choose to accessorize with a minimal necklace or to go with some extra bling to bring attention up to your face. If you find that you have a dress that is pretty detailed you won't want to accessorize with a necklace that draws attention up. You will want to leave eyes on you in your dress as that is most likely the reason you fell in love with it in the first place.

When it comes to earrings you will really want to consider your hair style and then the dress. If you are going to wear your hair pulled back away from your face it is appropriate to wear more intricate earrings. However if you are thinking that you want to style your hair down or half up, half down keep the earring choice simple and stick with studs. You will already have enough going on with your hairstyle to forgo glitzy earrings.

Bridal jewelry, like every other detail with your wedding is dictated by you. When you are purchasing pieces for your wedding consider purchasing pieces that you can wear in your everyday life as well. A pair of diamond stud earrings and a simple diamond pendant necklace can be bridal jewelry one day and an everyday staple accessory the next.

Wedding Jewelry Considerations

It’s that time of year, wedding season.  The spring and summer season is a busy time of year for many different types of celebrations including getting married.  Jewelry becomes a hot seller amongst online jewelry companies as well right around this time, coincidence? We think not.  The truth is that wedding jewelry is usually one of the last things that brides and groom purchase.  It is best to wait until the brides dress and bridesmaid dresses come in order to get a true feel for them.  Once you make some final decisions with the dress in hand about things as simple as your hair style you will be better set to make decisions on bridal jewelry.

What you choose as far as bridesmaid’s jewelry is significant as you want it to not only fit with the style of the dress and occasion but you also want it to be something that they will treasure and find use for in the future.  There is a lot to consider such as the style of your wedding; is the wedding super formal or more laid back and casual?  Also consider the time of day, the dress that was chosen, hairstyle choice and wedding theme.

When looking at the style of the wedding choose appropriate pieces.  A chunky statement piece may not be as appropriate for a casual wedding as it would be for a formal occasion.  Casual weddings call for a more understated approach to jewelry.  With a casual or intimate wedding a simple pair of studs or drop earring with a pendant necklace is most appropriate.

The theme and color of the wedding should also be a consideration when it comes to bridal party jewelry.  For instance as wedding that is beach themed jewelry could include pearls or shells combined with crystals.  Or with a vineyard wedding you could bring in a hint of color based around the dress and wine that will be served.  There are elegant ways to bring the theme of your wedding into your choice of jewelry for your bridesmaids.

A wedding I attended recently was placed in a grand garden setting.  The bride chose to give each of the bridesmaid’s elegant jewelry fashioned to resemble the flower.  It was beautiful, classic and tied together in the most stylish manner without being too much.  The earrings were small silver drop earrings shaped in a belle just like the bud of the flower.  The necklace was a more elaborate piece using the belle shape that was represented in the earrings mixed in with a combination of silver, crystal and pearl.  Stunning is the only adjective to describe the jewelry.  Come to find out after the wedding the groom had also had a ring made for his bride fashioned in the same design as the jewelry she had given her bridesmaid. 

Consider the dress neckline as well as the hairstyles that your bridesmaids will be wearing.  If hair is going to be swept up it is feasible to do a chunky earring however if hair is going to be warn loose and down it is best to stick with a simple understated stud earring.  The same is true for a necklace. If the top of the gowns are heavily designed there is no need to have a drastic necklace however with a simpler gown a necklace can bring attention up to your face.
