You've designed and planned for months, even years to create your perfect wedding. You have the perfect man, a sublime venue, an amazing dress and the best shoes a girl has ever seen. Now it's time to add the finishing touches to your bridal look by finding the perfect jewelry to enhance your look like you hired a a New York stylist!
The shade of your wedding gown plays a big role in determining which metal color and style of jewelry you should wear on your big day.Taking a note from starlets like Jane Mansfield, a bright white dress looks the best with white metal like white gold or platinum. Yellow gold would compete with cool, classic elegance of a bright white gown. Ivory or antique white dresses look great with the warmth and glow of yellow gold. Blush dresses pair beautifully with the soft, romantic tones of rose gold. Diamond white, or off white dresses have a warm under tone that works with any metal that compliments your personal skin tone and personal style.
The neckline of your gown is of equal importance, and you should try not to overwhelm it with your jewelry choices. The strapless dress is a distinct, dramatic style where a necklace might compete with the dress. Instead opt for a pair of stud, or halo earrings or if your wearing your hair down, a pair of drop earrings. A sweetheart neckline is a design element of its own and at the most a simple pendant and stud earrings are all you need. The V-Neck dress is the perfect frame for a pendant or necklace, or skip the necklace and and wear a pair of cluster earrings. A high neckline require nothing more than simple stud earrings.
Will you wear your hair up or down? Your hairstyle should also be considered when deciding on the perfect bridal jewelry. Automatically you may think wearing your hair down means bigger earrings, but you hairstyle adds another element to the overall design and stud earrings may still be the ticket. If you wear your hair in an up style and have a simple dress, drop earrings will add elegance and length to your neck while stud earrings will add a vintage tenor. If your wearing a head piece, drop earrings could overwhelm it and simple earrings may be the perfect accompaniment.
Keeping your jewelry elegant and classic like a pendant and stud earring is always a win, and the best part, you can wear your bridal jewelry for years to come!
