You need the right accessories to complete the look after choosing the perfect dress.

 

When choosing bridal accessories, you don't have to feel overwhelmed. You can really add a personal touch to your wedding day look with accessories and jewelry. It's not necessary to reinvent the wheel when it comes to completing your ensemble. If you want to trust your instincts, choose what you like, and trust your instincts, follow our tips for choosing the right accessories!  

 

 

Wearing Sentimental Pieces? Start There

 

When wearing "something borrowed," your favorite aunt's bangles or Nana's pearls shouldn't look afterthoughts. Wearing a specific piece when you go dress shopping is a great idea! That way you can make sure this special piece of jewelry will be in mind while you’re putting together your wedding day look.   

 

 

It's Not Necessary to Match Rings Perfectly

 

You should already reflect your style in the other pieces of jewelry you select for your marriage in the rings you choose for your engagement and wedding. Everything does not have to match exactly. Matching metals is not required either. It is possible to combine platinum engagement rings with gold to create a beautiful look. All it takes is making intentional choices! 

 

 

Make sure your necklace matches your neckline

 

 

A good rule of thumb is to match your necklace to your dress' neckline. Strapless or sweetheart necklines look best with a choker or a statement necklace. It is best to wear a necklace on your neckline if your skin is showing. Make sure you check out our accessories here to get inspired! 

 

 

Take a risk and step outside of your comfort zone

 

Your wedding look should reflect the styles that make you feel most confident and what works for you. If bold jewelry isn't part of your usual style, you don't have to wear it. Take your favorite pieces to the next level! 

 

When you always wear stud earrings, consider wearing those with fancier stones! If you are a fan of bracelets, you might want to consider more glamorous ones. Step outside your comfort zone a little on your big day, but stay within your comfort zone!



Trends Don't Have To Define Your Style

 

Trends will always exist in the wedding industry, and it's okay to embrace those that appeal to you. It's half the fun, in fact! Consequently, don't follow a trend just because it's everywhere on social media if it's not right for you. Let trends inspire you instead of dictating your decisions! The more sentimental and personal reasons you choose, the more likely you are to look back on your decision years later.

 

 

Mixing metals is okay

 

It appears that certain metals work well with certain shades of dresses: platinum and silver are good options for white dresses; yellow gold is good for champagne and ivory dresses; rose gold is good for blush dresses. Sometimes we disagree! When it comes to metal tones and colors, you should trust your eye rather than the rules.

 


Make Your Veil Stand Out

 

 

Making your wedding day look stand out requires a focal point. A piece of jewelry should be the icing on your wedding gown, for example. You can create that look with a breathtaking veil with gorgeous appliques and texture, as well as with a statement necklace or pair of earrings! 



It's Always Possible to Change Things Up

 

You don't have to wear the same jewelry during your ceremony and reception. For the reception, you can still wear sparklers even if your statement veil prevents you from wearing statement earrings. You can also change your accessories for the reception in addition to your second look dress.
