You've been so focused on what the groomsmen are going to wear, the perfect gifts for your bridesmaids, and creating a timeline for everyone the day of the wedding, that you haven't even thought about how to accessorize your dress. Don't stress, we've got you covered! Here are our favorite wedding day pieces for every bride (and dress)!
Also, did we mention? Jewelry makes a very nice wedding gift from your husband-to-be.
When choosing the perfect pieces for your wedding day, you want pieces that will compliment, but not be the focus of your look . Less is more here and let's be honest, you want everyone looking at you not your jewelry. You don't want earrings so large that they outshine you and your groom in all of the photos, and you certainly don't want a pendant that competes with the neckline of your dress. Ideally, on your special day, you want just enough accessories to add a little sparkle and shine without competing for attention.
Sweetheart or V-Neck
If your dress has any kind of V or sweetheart shape, the neckline is an important feature of your dress. You want eyes drawn from your neckline to your face and a piece that will fill the negative space. We recommend larger pendants that go about halfway between neckline of dress and your collar bone.
Boat Neck or Scoop
For necklines with a scoop or curve, you want a pendant that will compliment the same shape. This will help to frame your face and ensure a cohesive look. Any of our curved pendants are delicate enough for the occasion!
Illusion or High-Neck Halter
If you have a dress with a higher neckline, it's obvious that pendants won't be your go-to here. Here are a few of our favorite studs to rock, and can also be a nice compliment to any sentimental or family heirloom pieces you may wear around your wrist!
Haven't had time to find your something blue for the big day? These subtle studs are the perfect addition to any look to accompany your something old, something borrowed, and something new. They make a great gift for any bride-to-be!
No matter what look you're going for on your special day, we're happy to help recommend the perfect pieces! Simply email a photo of your dress to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll be sure to help you complete your look. We can also help you find the perfect gifts for your bridal party!
