7 Do's and Don'ts of Selecting Your Wedding Jewelry

After you find the perfect wedding dress for your special day, the next step is just as important - bridal jewelry. You need just the right wedding jewelry to complete your ensemble, everything from earrings and necklaces to the perfect bracelets. Nothing can be left out. But just like dresses, there are a few do's and don'ts you should be aware of! 

DO start planning your jewelry in advance

Waiting until the last minute is a HUGE no-no. Do not treat jewelry as an afterthought but something to do right after your dream wedding dress has been selected. 

DO NOT overdo it on the accessories

Over accessorizing on your wedding is a huge faux pas. If your wedding dress features face, loads of embroidery, or small crystals, go light on the jewelry. If you want to wear lots of bangles, opt for a simple necklace. 

DO make your jewelry meaningful

If you have a family heirloom jewelry item that has been passed down for generations, plan the rest of your jewelry around this one item. 

DO NOT disregard your decolletage 

Your necklace should match the neckline of your wedding dress, whether you picked strapless or sweetheart, v-neck, halter, or high neck. If you are not too sure what style goes with what neckline, just go with something simple and elegant, a pair of simple diamond studs (or cubic zirconia ones) and a strand of pearls.

DO match your metal to your dress

Most brides do not think of this but different metals match different shades of white. For example, for a white dress, it is best to stick with silver shades. But if you are wearing an ivory gown, gold jewelry looks divine.

DO NOT forget about your bridesmaids

Bridesmaids need accessories too! A perfect bridesmaids gift is to give each a piece of jewelry. Bridesmaid necklaces are very popular. And you can make them even more special by getting each one their own personalized necklace, such as monogram jewelry with their initials or a name necklace with their name or nickname. Whenever they look at it after the wedding, they will remember when they got it!

And last but certainly not least, DO be yourself!

Probably the most important thing to remember when it comes to selecting wedding jewelry is to make sure the accessories reflect who you are and your personal style. If you do not like chunky, statement necklaces, go for something simple, like a monogram necklace with your new initials or a special engraved necklace that reminds you of the special day.
