Whether or not you’re looking for a very traditional look on your wedding or if you want to break all the and come up with something distinctly “you” for your look while you walk down the aisle, the wedding jewelry that you pick out is going to have a huge impact on not just how you look but also how you feel.
The right pieces of jewelry are going to complement the dress, your makeup, your hair, and the overall style of your wedding in general, whereas the wrong pieces are going to look immediately out of place and just kind of haphazard.
To better help you choose the perfect wedding jewelry for your big day, we’ve put together a couple of tips and tricks so that you can really knock it right out of the park!
Don’t go overboard
The most important thing you have to remember when it comes to your wedding jewelry (and your wedding in general, really) is that you want to make sure that you add just enough flair without going overboard – which is really, really easy to do!
Less really is more a when it comes to your wedding jewelry, as you don’t want to risk your jewelry outshining you, your dress, or your special day in general. Try to pare back as best you can what it comes to jewelry, picking out really special pieces that had to your luck rather than distract, and you’ll be good to go.
Match your metals to your material
If you are having a tough time deciding between silver or gold metal for your jewelry, the best “rule of thumb” is to simply match your metals to the material of your dress and let your dress be a guiding star going forward.
If your wedding gown is white, the brightest lights of platinum or silver are really going to look spectacular. If you’re going with an ivory gown, gold is going to help to accentuate the creaminess of this color perfectly. Champagne colored dresses can look fantastic with gold jewelry, but if you’re going for a more antique inspired look silver is the way to go. If your dress has blue hues in it, go with rose gold – you’ll look fantastic!
Think about your neck line
Your neckline is going to be responsible for framing your face, and you’ll want to make sure that you choose a necklace that is going to help accentuate your neckline as well as the framing that you have already established with your dress in the first place.
Something small, something simple, and something that matches the metal that you are going to be wearing any other pieces of your jewelry is always a good way to go, though you could certainly add a bit of pop or color with your necklace if that something that you’re interested in as well.
Try not to get overwhelmed
It’s really – REALLY – easy to get overwhelmed when you’re choosing the jewelry that you are going to be wearing on this once in a lifetime occasion. If you’re having a difficult time picking the right pieces, or if you feel like you are really struggling, simplify things dramatically and find one perfect piece that you are really crazy about to act as the “cornerstone” for the rest of the jewelry that you are going to wear.
This’ll make life a lot easier when it comes to picking other pieces, has you’ll be able to use this foundation to build off of and the process will get a lot easier.
Above all else, be yourself!
At the end of the day, you need to make sure that you are picking pieces of jewelry that are going to show off your personality, pieces of jewelry that are important to you, and pieces of jewelry that help you to feel your absolute best and most beautiful self.
Hopefully we’ve been able to point you in the right direction and share with you some inside information that can make this process of choosing wedding jewelry a lot easier. Best of luck to you and your loved one on your big day!
