- Define your style
Defining your style will help you decide what type of bridal jewelry you will be choosing whether it is a bold statement piece, a classic timeless one, or a minimalist one. Before heading out be clear on your style and your choices are streamlined.
- Pick your wedding dress first
Before going for your jewelry choice make sure you pick a wedding dress as your dress determines your choice of jewelry. The fabric of your wedding dress will help you choose. Platinum and silver look beautiful with a white gown. If your wedding gown has an ivory tone, wearing gold pieces will enhance the look best. Rose gold goes well with a dress with pink hues. If your dress is light beige, opt for burnished silver to dazzle.
- Consider the neckline of your dress
If your dress is strapless or has a sweetheart neckline, wear a choker. It will accentuate your neck beautifully. If your gown has a high neckline, skip the necklace and put on a pair of hanging earrings. If the neckline on your dress is ornate, opt for fresh flowers in your hair and a pair of chandeliers or drop earrings. Wearing a v-neck wedding dress a pendant necklace or a choker will complete the look.
- Go shopping early
Start your shopping process early rather than waiting until the last minute as you get to explore several shopping options and take your time on eventually making a final choice. You could go along with another eye or the jeweler for a second opinion.
- Must be comfortable
Comfort is key, comfort over everything is all we say on this point. You would be wearing this piece for several hours so you want to be yourself and very comfortable. One way to ensure this is to look at the pieces properly.
- Avoid colours
We know you love colours but bridal jewelry should always be in plain colours like white, beige, nude, silver, or gold. Avoid colours like pink, red, green, etc.
- Simple and Timeless
Simplicity never goes out of style are the words of Alieu Jors and no truer words have been spoken. You want bridal jewelry that compliments your dress and doesn’t take away from it. Make sure it is a piece that can be worn after the occasion and may be passed down from one generation to another.
- Be Creative
Get creative with your wedding jewelry and have a jeweler make you one. You could include intricate details in the making to bring more life to your special day.
