Every bride understands the importance of adding the finishing touches to her once in a lifetime wedding outfit. Whichever accessories are chosen, they all add something special to the overall look, and this look is to be remembered forever, so it’s important to get the bridal jewellery perfectly right.
Deciding upon your bridal jewellery can be a difficult process, but along with our range of stunning accessories available at our Saffron Walden boutique, here is some advice on choosing the right jewellery for you.
Match your metals
Knowing what type of metal will work with your wedding dress’s shade of white is a good way to begin choosing your jewellery.
White Gown – Gold embellishments may clash with this bright white hue, so try pearl or platinum.
Diamond-white Gown – This barely off-white colour works well with gold and silver, as well as rose gold and pearl.
Ivory Gown – This candlelight shade is a soft, light white, and some versions even have yellow undertones. Adorn yourself with gold jewellery to highlight the creamy tint of the fabric.
Don’t forget about your décolletage
Pair your neckline style with the proper adornment to add character to your wedding gown or highlight a unique feature.
Sweetheart or Strapless – Try to skip the necklace and focus on chandelier earrings instead. Wear clear crystal for a sleek look, or add a hint of colour to brighten it up. You could even add two or three fresh flowers to your hair for a vintage, elegant feel.
V-Neck – This style is perfect for a necklace, from a thing chain with a simple pendant to a crystal choker with matching earrings, there’s endless possibilities.
Halter or Reverse Halter – Consider a headband to add panache to your wedding updo, or try adding some sparkle to your hair with intricate crystal hairpins.
When in doubt, stick to the basics
If deciding on your jewels is proving more difficult than finding the gown, there’s one jewellery duo that’s timeless: pair diamond drop-earrings with a sophisticated necklace, such as a strand of pearls.
