Choosing The Jewelry For Your Wedding Dress: Tips For You

Posted on

When you are planning your wedding, one of the biggest decisions you will make is on your dress. But once your dress is chosen, you will also have to choose the jewelry to go with the dress. This in and of itself is a big decision. You do not want to choose the wrong jewelry for the dress and the look you are going for. Get to know a few tips to help you choose the right jewelry for your wedding dress. Then, you can be sure you are making the best possible decision for yourself and your beautiful wedding dreams. 

Pay Attention to the Dress Details

One of the ways to go about choosing the right jewelry for your wedding dress is to pay attention to the details. If your dress has silver beading, for example, you do not want to get gold jewelry because it will clash with the style of your dress. 

Pay attention to the details of your dress in color and in design. If your dress has a floral lace, look for jewelry that echoes this floral or plant theme with natural curves and lines. The more you go with the details of your dress, the better off you will be with your jewelry. 

Keep in Mind That Color Matters

As previously mentioned, you do not want your jewelry to clash with the color of the beading or accessories on your dress. However, the color of the actual dress matters too when you are choosing jewelry. 

Blush dresses, for example, have pinkish hues to them. They may pair better with rose gold jewelry than straight gold. Ivory dresses and gold look great together. Pure white dresses often pop with silver and platinum. These color combinations can help guide you in your jewelry choices for your wedding dress. 

When All Else Fails, Keep It Simple

You do not want to go overboard with the jewelry you choose for your wedding dress. Too much jewelry or too much "bling" will take away from the beauty of the dress itself. So, when all else fails, remember to keep it simple with your jewelry. 

Earrings and a delicate necklace can be enough to really set your look and make it pop. If you want a statement piece that is larger, such as a big necklace to draw attention to the neckline of your dress, then keep the earrings simple with basic diamond studs. 

Remember that you are the star. You want people looking at you first, the dress second, and the jewelry third. You should wear the jewelry rather than allowing it to wear you.

Now that you know some tips to help you choose the right jewelry for your wedding dress, you can head to a jeweler right away to get your pieces selected.
