With so many styles, we’ll stay with the classics. Trumpet, Mermaid, Sheath, Mini, A-line?
Is your dress strapless with an open neckline or sweetheart wedding dress? If you have a boatneck or V-neck wedding dress, you will have fun with plenty of choices. These types of dresses are perfect because anything goes well with it. From a simple chic necklace to a larger than life statement piece, to a vintage cameo or a simple pendant.
For those with a delicate high neck wedding dress, or one that has straps, a narrow or closer V-neck, you’ll want to be more selective with larger, chunky statement necklaces as they can clutter your style. So, consider a simple pendant or single crystal necklace. If your dress is too elaborate, opt out of wearing a necklace and accessorize with beautiful wedding earrings, instead.
DRESS COLORS and HUES
Most wedding dresses are a shade of white, Not all whites are the same, so take the color and material into consideration when choosing the right jewelry.
HAIRSTYLE and THE UP AND DOWN DOs
Unleash your creative side! Use your romantic, wild and let-your-hair-go kind of imagination!
Your up-do will be perfect for linear earrings, statement earrings, drop earrings, or even subtle stud earrings!
But, don’t make your jewelry clash and don’t wear everything at once! So, if you’re wearing a statement necklace, you consider choosing stud earrings to give you the perfect balance.
If you’re wearing an up-do with high collar dress, then, go for linear earrings. This style will give you, and you’ll look chic!
For down-dos, consider statement necklace that compliments your hair. Or let your tresses do the talking and accessorize with sparkling studs or long earrings.
Hair jewelry is beautiful too. Add hairpins to your curls, or to a sleek hairstyle. Get creative with large sparkling vintage style barrettes. The possibilities are endless.
If you’re opting for a minimalist look, wear a simple bracelet or a chunky statement bracelet.
