Pearls and diamonds are natural choices for a bride; their dazzling purity and elegance pairs well with wedding dresses, and they are set in a wide variety of styles perfect for both the boho bride and the classic bride. If your dress is already sparkly and complex, consider going with simple diamond studs to accentuate the sparkle but not overdo it. If your gown is simpler in its decorations, choose pearl jewelry to keep it classy and highlight your simple elegance. Our staff at Studio 2015 in the Huntley area can help you decide which style is best to pair with your dress and find the right length of diamond or pearl necklace to complement the neckline of your dress.
Tying it All Together
Choosing the right jewelry to go with your wedding dress is a matter of personal preference, but there are a few guidelines to get you started. Let your jewelry style match your dress, your wedding aesthetic, and your level of formality. If you're going for something romantic and sweet, have a lacy dress, or want something simple and elegant, pair your wedding dress with a short pearl choker and matching stud earrings. For a bolder, more modern feel, feature diamond drop earrings and long pendant necklaces. Your jewelry should look and feel like a natural extension of your dress. Bring Mom or a bridesmaid jewelry shopping with you for a second opinion to help choose the best pieces for your special day.
Jewels for the Girls
You've invited your best friends to help you celebrate your big day, and you'll all be getting ready together. To make the most of this special time with just you and your best girls, give each one a gift of matching jewelry to wear. Earrings are a great token of appreciation and easy to pair with all cuts and colors of bridesmaid dresses. If you'd like something a little more personal to commemorate sharing your big day with your besties, opt for a charm bracelet where you can put the date, your bridesmaid's initials, and a few charms that sum up the day (why not champagne?!). It's a day you'll remember for the rest of your life, but they'll remember it too!
Jewelry for the Weekend Of
You're probably laser-focused on the big day, but don't forget about the rest of the weekend! From the rehearsal dinner to the after-party and everything in between, your jewelry is important the whole weekend long. A simple pair of pearl or diamond studs is the perfect go-with-anything accessory that you can wear for your bridal shower and rehearsal. It's fun to incorporate some of your color scheme into your jewelry with colored gemstones that you can wear with your bridal weekend attire: go for color with a breezy and relaxed necklace for brunch, and show off your sophisticated side with mysterious Tahitian pearl earrings at your rehearsal dinner. Choose pieces you can wear during your wedding weekend and on your honeymoon to get the most out of your new jewelry!
