Congrats! You are getting married. Now, you only have to plan what could be the happiest day of your life, your wedding. With so much to think about and do, the last thing you want to forget about is your wedding gown. Your wedding dress is the star of the show.
Detail and style of your gown is everything but to elevate and add personality to your look, you need to accessorize with the right jewelry. No bridal ensemble is complete without jewelry accessories. The dizzying amount of choices make it challenging to select the perfect jewelry accessories for your wedding, so here are a few rules to help you accessorize your gown flawlessly.
- Do not be overwhelmed by the myriad choices
If you rarely wear jewels, you might be overwhelmed by the many options that jewelers have to offer. Deciding on the jewelry pieces to buy may turn out to be more challenging than finding a gown. To avoid this, focus your search on one piece that you totally adore, be it diamond studs or a pendant necklace and invest in it.
- Keep it simple and classy
Although it is your wedding day, resist the temptation to drown yourself in diamonds. The last thing you want to do is have your accessories outshine you or look like a five-year-old girl playing Pretty Pretty Princess. Rather than accessorizing every part of your body, choose one part to accentuate with a large piece, then you can balance the rest with small adornments. Earrings and bracelet combo is always a classy look.
- Express your true style
On a day when all eyes are fixed on you, you do not want to wander off completely from your comfort zone. Do not opt for uncomfortable earrings just because they are trendy. Confidence is the best accessory of all (that and of course your engagement ring!) and make you comfortable enough to walk tall and enjoy your wedding day.
- Consider the dress style
The dress neckline plays a critical part in wedding jewelry selection. Statement necklaces go well with strapless or sweetheart wedding gowns. A simple pendant will also do. Necklaces can look cluttered and overbearing on a one-shoulder gown or a dress with a high neck or thick straps. In such a case, try a delicate necklace or avoid it altogether in favor of statement earrings.
- Consider the gown color
In the western culture, white is the default color for gowns. For other cultures like the Indian culture, brides don more colorful gowns. As a general rule, match your metals with your wedding dress color. For stark white dresses, choose silver or platinum pieces and for ivory gowns, accessorize with gold jewelry. However, if the dress is already embellished with beadwork, they should dictate the colors of your accessories.
- Your choice of hairstyle matters
Choose your hairstyle before picking your accessories. Different hairstyles are complemented by different jewelry pieces. Statement earrings or necklaces are perfect for up-dos. For down-dos, you can opt for a combination of delicate stud earrings and a statement necklace or long statement earrings that sparkle through your curls and no necklace.
You can top off your look by accessorizing your hair as well. If veils are not your thing, there are creative ways to add some shine to your hair using combs or fascinators.
