The Essential Wedding Jewellery Guide
There are so many elements to a wedding, and when they all come together perfectly it’s a beautiful moment that will stay in your memory for a lifetime.
For the bride, choosing the right clothes and accessories is often a difficult balance to strike. The dress should be the obvious focal point, but this is often competing with the flowers, and then there’s jewellery to content with. If you’re planning to change into a simpler dress in the evening, you might want to be wearing a statement piece of jewellery to take centre stage as the night goes on. If you’re unsure about your jewellery choice for your wedding, follow this simple guide…
For the beach wedding
You’re probably wearing something lightweight, unfussy and simple. Your jewellery should match this style, so look for minimalist pieces that won’t overpower your ensemble. A long pendant necklace, for example, will look stunning with a simple slip dress and a hand-tied bouquet of local tropical flowers.
For the city-centre wedding
If your wedding is taking place in a chic hotel in the heart of the city, your dress will likely be modern and sleek. Perhaps a figure-fitting fishtail dress with a minimal trail. Perhaps you may even eschew the traditional white in favour of a bold navy or scarlet dress? In this case, your jewellery should be as modern and chic as the rest of your outfit. Think: statement necklace and a bold bangle bracelet.
For the fairytale wedding
The venue is a castle, your dress has a train and the cake has more than five tiers. For the fairytale wedding, tradition is the most important theme, and your jewellery can help to uphold this. If you are sticking to the “something old, something new” tradition, then perhaps a pair of family heirloom loose diamond earrings could be your something borrowed?
For the country retreat wedding
Your bridesmaids are wearing cowboy boots and your guests are sitting on hay bales. For this wedding, your boho vibes will need to shine through, and there’s no better way to do this than with eclectic jewellery made from non traditional materials. Perhaps you have a favourite local craft seller with some unique pieces that fit your theme? Browse sites like Etsy if you’re looking for a one-of-a-kind piece of jewellery to fit your style.
