Finding the Perfect Bridal & Bridesmaid Jewelry

So you have selected your wedding gown, you have found the perfect bridal shoes and decided on a terrific hairstyle, but you still need to find the bridal jewelry to accessorize the complete bridal look.  What style of wedding jewelry would be the perfect choice?

The necklace & earrings you select can make a huge difference in the overall look you desire for your wedding day.  Some brides would like to be covered with diamonds or pearls, but many modern day gowns are adorned with a variety of rhinestones & crystals or pearls & beads, so you will want to pay particular attention to the bridal and bridesmaid jewelry you choose to ensure that the jewelry complements the gown perfectly. You don’t want the jewelry to compete for attention with your wedding gown, but rather be just the right accent.

What is the theme of your bridal gown? If your dress has beautiful Swarovski crystals and beads then you will want your jewelry to feature some similar stones rather than wear, for instance, freshwater pearls. Select the best jewelry that compliments rather than detracts from your wedding apparel.

As a bride, you will want the guests to notice your best features as well as the stunning wedding gown you will wear on your special day. For instance, if you know that your eyes are one of your best features, then focus on accentuating that feature by wearing jewelry that is close to your face like crystal or pearl earrings or a stunning pearl hair comb or antique vintage headband. If you choose a tiara or bridal headpiece you will want to ensure that the headpiece compliments your bridal jewelry. The bride does not want to wear a tiara or headband that clashes with the rest of the jewelry she is wearing. Often, some brides wear lovely, delicate wedding necklaces & earrings but they add a large, heavy headpiece which ruins the overall appearance they wanted to achieve.

Accessorizing for the wedding can take place in many forms – necklaces, earrings, bracelets, hair combs, headbands, tiaras, pendants and brooches to name a few. But did you know that you can add jewels to your shoes for an extra special wow factor? Many shoe retailers also sell beaded or crystal bows and accents that you can add to the front of your shoes for an added sparkle of excitement. Just make sure you keep in mind that you want to compliment your gown with the same kind of beads, crystals or pearls as your wedding dress or jewelry.

Lastly, in choosing bridal jewelry it’s best not to go overboard.  As the saying goes, “Less is More.”  If you wear too many pieces of bridal jewelry with your gown, you may spoil the overlook of your apparel. Keep it simple and elegant and let your bridal gown be the main focus when you walk down the aisle to your groom.
