HOW TO CHOOSE JEWELRY FOR BRIDES
Choosing the perfect jewelry for your big day comes down to three rules:
1.Wearing jewelry that accentuates your neckline
2.Finding an unforgettable bridal ring
3.Matching your jewelry metals to your bridal gown
We'll let you in on a secret. When it comes to wedding jewelry, the old saying that "less is more" is so true. Although it's easy to become overwhelmed by all of the gorgeous jewelry you could wear, try to stick to two statement pieces.
Depending on your personal taste, your neckline is a great place to start matching your wedding jewelry with. For example, V-neck, strapless, square, and scoop necklines are the easiest to pair jewelry pieces with.
Have fun combining bib or statement necklaces with your low scoop neckline gown. If you really want to make your wedding guests jaws drop, choose a pearl or metal choker to go with your strapless dress. Better yet, find an elegant morganite or pearl pendant to suit your V-neck wedding outfit.
Now, it's time to find a standout bridal ring. Besides the ring that your suiter has picked out for you, you can accessorize your gown with a sparkling ring of your choice as well. Think about the rings that you wear every day.
Are they special enough to take down the aisle with you?
From headpiece jewelry to bracelets, make sure that you choose pieces that complement your dress. Just make sure that they won't snag your gown.
Let's talk about matching metals with your wedding dress. For those of you who prefer to wear white, try brighter jewelry metals like platinum, rhodium, or gold. If your dress is off-white, buy vintage jewelry with a yellow-gold hue.
Additionally, yellow gold works well with ivory bridal outfits. Match gray or silver gowns with sterling silver jewelry!
MORE BRIDAL JEWELRY TIPS
For more conventional brides, you'll definitely want to make sure that you follow these tips to master your wedding look:
1.Picking out polished pearl jewelry
2.Choosing something comfortable for your wedding outfit
3.Finding something blue
There's nothing more timeless than a classic pair of pearls. That's why it's always a great idea to pair some form of pearl jewelry with your bridal gown. As a symbol of purity, simplicity, and elegance, pearl earrings, bracelets, and pendants add a nice, personal touch to your wedding dress.
Bonus points - pearls are way warmer than diamonds are, making them easier to wear. Plus, pearls match every single skin tone. Coming in several shapes and sizes, buy different colored pearls or baroque pearls to match your bridal outfit.
If you want to wear something comfortable with your wedding look, be sure to try it on before you walk down the aisle. For example, if you're a huge fan of silver, then it might feel a little weird to wear gold during your special ceremony. Besides this, wearing heavy earrings on your sensitive ear lobes is a big no-no too.
However, there's nothing wrong with swapping out your studs with party hoops for the wedding reception. Double-check that everything is comfortable to wear.
We know that finding something blue is the hardest part of your bridal look. Fortunately for you, we're here to make it simple. We highly recommend that you buy a blue gem like a sapphire pendant to make a splash at your wedding.
As a quintessentially blue gemstone, sapphires are only rivaled by blue diamonds. If you're looking to save a few bucks, though, tanzanite is much more accessible.
Here's the best part: tanzanite looks surprisingly similar to a sapphire, but it's much cheaper to purchase!
HOW TO PICK JEWELRY FOR GROOMS
Nowadays, grooms are putting a lot more thought into how they wear wedding jewelry. That's why it'll take a bit of effort to discover the best wedding band.
To personalize your wedding band selection, think about your groom's day-to-day duties, personality, and style. If they are planning on wearing this ring for years to come, it has to match their lifestyle. Pro-tip: you might want to choose matching wedding rings.
Usually, wedding rings are meant to complement each other. For instance, you could choose similar rings that are made out of the same medal or engraved with the same design. More importantly, consider the material of your groom's ring.
If your partner is more rugged, you can't go wrong with rings crafted from:
However, grooms with a more traditional style may opt for silver or gold wedding bands.
As for the fit, you usually have two options - comfort fit or traditional fit. While everyone has a different preference, you should have your groom try on both to see what their preference is!
