It’s easy to get caught up worrying about engagement rings and wedding bands. But there’s other jewellery for weddings that you should consider too. Necklaces, bracelets, brooches, earrings and more can be incorporated into your look. Here are some tips to get your look right. Use your personal style Everybody has their own style. And while your wedding day is a chance to dress up like you never would elsewhere, you still want to maintain some of your own personal style. You want to feel comfortable on the day, and this can be difficult if you’re too strict with the rules about which jewellery you can and can’t wear. If you love rose gold jewellery, find some classy pieces that work well with your dress. If you’re more of a yellow gold person, the choice is totally yours. When you look back on your wedding photos, you obviously want to look stunning, but you should also look like your real self. Choosing the right necklace While a lot of focus goes on engagement rings and wedding bands, perhaps the most noticeable other piece of wedding jewellery is the necklace. When choosing a necklace, it’s important to match it to your dress. As we’ll touch on, the type of metal isn’t the major concern, but rather the style of necklace. For example, if you’re wearing a V-neck dress, a pendant is the best option. When wearing strapless dresses, a choker is the most appropriate. Ultimately, the main thing to remember is that the necklace should be against your skin for maximum effect, rather than hanging on the dress material where it can get lost. Play with different metals There’s a common misconception that certain metals should be used with particular dress colours. The fact is, not everybody wears traditional white wedding dresses these days. Therefore, the rules have changed somewhat. In years gone by, platinum or silver jewellery was recommended for white dresses. This still stands true – the two do look beautiful together. However, it’s generally best to just use your eye and your own personal taste to determine what looks best. Have two sets of jewellery It might sound a bit over-indulgent to purchase two sets of wedding jewellery. After all, you can only wear one, right? But in the modern age, people often wear a completely different dress for the ceremony and reception. So, who says you need to wear the same jewellery all day? If you do choose to wear different dresses for each part of the day, switch your jewellery up too for a totally fresh look. In need of luxury jewellery for weddings?
